Meet the Graysons

October 2, 2008 at 6:00 pm (Random, Superheroes, TV) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So just when Smallville finally isn’t sucking so bad (or so I’ve heard from people that actually still watch it) the CW decides to add some competition for it (ultimately probably replacing it seeing as how they both have the same executive producers). Yesterday they announced “The Graysons” and if you can’t guess what it’s about you fail at life 😉 . Anyway it’s about Robin (a.k.a Dick Grayson still) and his family (before they were killed obviously). It’s going to be set in modern times and I’m sure Dick (or DJ as he’s being called seeing as how people are immature) will probably be highschool age so lots of girls can oggle whoever plays him (even though he’s supposed to be pretty young when his parents are killed).

Lots of people are saying how this show is going to suck because supposedly the only thing that made Smallville great was the fact that Superman already had super powers. I don’t even like Superman and I used to watch Smallville. It was a good drama in the beginning. I think it’s major flaw was the fact that the CW tried to keep playing on that drama without moving the Superman story forward fast enough. But, seeing as how the CW has a lot of really popular dramas, I’m sure they’re going to have a plan for making this show successful. I mean the executive producers of Smallville will have had time to learn from their mistakes and the CW will probably cast someone hot to play Robin (I mean that’s all Supernatural has going for it and those guys aren’t really that hot and has anyone noticed that they’re really gay for each other?). I’m guessing that will fix most of people’s concerns about the show and if not they can just turn it into a weird circus family drama.

I hope that (not to sound vindictive and creepy) the Graysons get offed early personally. That way Dick can be emo and get adopted by Batman and whine to his schoolmates about how he has no personal life and how his parents are dead ect. ect. Then he can turn into Robin and start prowling the streets at night in order to avenge his family. I mean even a Batman show from the Robin perspective would be pretty interesting to me. So I’m looking forward to this show as another thing I can watch in case they end up killing Reaper too 😦 .

In other news, there’s no Office tonight because of the stupid debate, but it’s perfectly ok for NBC to show 2 crappy “My Name is Earls” instead of one of each. I’m angry seeing as how I’ve been looking forward to it all week 😛 that and the fact that “My Name is Earl” sucks hardcore.

Celebrities jumping on the Superhero bandwagon

September 15, 2008 at 11:47 am (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

If you thought the rumors of Will Smith as Captain America were weird, I’ve got some surprises for you. First on the list is the fact that Brendan Fraser was supposedly almost Superman in Superman Returns. You can read part of Brendan’s interview here and the playable interview is here. He says a lot about how he was really excited to be Superman and how all the rest of the people who tried out for it were supposedly nobodies from soap operas and other such things. He also says that he saw the script written by J.J. Abrams and that it was amazing. Abrams was responsible for producing Cloverfield which was a decent movie but I wouldn’t say it was amazing script wise. Anyway Brendan could’ve played Superman but I don’t think he could’ve been serious about it. The emo script of Superman Returns would’ve been even weirder with Brendan Fraser as Superman. He acts pretty silly in most of his roles so he would’ve had to chill out and that’s probably one reason he turned it down (if he was offered it in the first place). Also I think a bigger nerd should’ve played the part.

The 2nd thing on the list of superhero insanity is David Boreanaz playing the Green Lantern. If I needed any more reason to hate the Green Lantern, than this is definitely it. I don’t know what WB was thinking on this one (other than the fact that a million teenage girls will go to see it in hopes of seeing him shirtless). Why not pair an obnoxious superhero with a bad soap opera level of acting (nothing could go wrong right)? Also, despite the fact that recently in most the Green Lantern stories he’s been black, they’re using someone who’s decidedly not black (I bet you Will Smith is mad 😛 ). I guess I have to give David the fact that he’s already played the Green Lantern. All I know is that I’m definitely not going to see that movie haha.

Who me?  I'm not being totally obvious, no not at all!

Who me? I'm not being totally obvious, no not at all!

Ok last on the list is the fact that there’s a rumor going around that Eva Longoria wants to be in the Avengers. This is because she was photographed leaving the offices of Marvel Comics with an Avengers comic and business card held in her hand. The photos look really staged as if maybe she wanted people to see her (but a celebrity would never try to get undeserved attention, no of course not). Anyway people are speculating that she wants to be the Wasp seeing as that’s the only original female Avengers character. I haven’t heard anything about this movie so I’m betting nobody is even trying to make it yet, although I’m sure concepts for a female superhero movie are being thought about (seriously what do geeks love more than a superhero, one with boobs). I could totally see her as a Wasp in real life, you know being annoyingly buzzy trying to get you to watch Desperate Housewives. People are forgetting the other Avengers females that have popped up sporadically throughout the years though. It’s actually a pretty long list and here it is just for you. These are only the confirmed members; there are still more that have questionable membership.

What do you mean you want someone who can act?

What do you mean you want someone who can act?

Wasp
Scarlet Witch
Black Widow
Mantis
Moondragon
Ms. Marvel/Warbird
Tigra
She-Hulk
Pulsar
Starfox
Mockingbird
Firebird
Spider-Woman
Invisible Woman
Sersi
Crystal
Firestar
Silverclaw

Personally I think Eva would better be suited to play the Black Widow, you know the superheroine most known for her man-eating powers lol. I’m sure Eva would love to seduce Robert Downey Jr. 🙂 . Also, I’d just like to point out how many females on the list have either bug or bird related names (not to mention those with female attributions). Seriously comic writers need to be more creative when naming their characters (I must say, I do like the name Sersi though 😀 ).

No more reboots please!

September 3, 2008 at 1:54 pm (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I love this poster and it's bullety skully goodness

I love this poster and it's bullety skully goodness

Is it sad that I just realized they’ve remade The Punisher into a movie called “Punisher: War Zone?” I hate it how all these sucky directors jumped on the superhero band wagon and decided to make movies. They didn’t even try to make them good; they just thought that people would like them because of the ongoing trend. That’s not how comic geeks work and it’s about time they realized it. Comic readers expect perfection. Why bother going to see a crappy movie rip-off when there are dozens of comics devoted to each character? They’ve already rebooted The Hulk and plan on rebooting Superman. Why not just get it over with and please please please reboot X-men (atleast the 3rd one I mean come on, that’s my only exception.)

Anyway it seems like there was a lot of drama between the directors and producers of this movie. If you look at Wikipedia, you can see what I mean. This movie is supposed to be really dark vs. the original film (this is good because he is you know, the Punisher) and is currently rated R. It starts off with Frank Castle already as the Punisher for several years. There is supposed to be some back story told through flashbacks though. The Punisher will be facing off with Jigsaw in this movie. (Fun fact, originally Spiderman and Nightcrawler stopped Jigsaw from framing the Punisher for the murder of one of Nightcrawler’s old friends.) It’s due in theaters on December 5, 2008.

Superman is gonna be emo now

August 22, 2008 at 1:49 pm (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Warner Bros. has announced that they’re going to be making Superman not crappy this time around reintroducing Superman. It’s supposed to be a similar situation to how The Incredible Hulk was a replacement for Hulk. *sigh* I hope they do it right this time. We don’t need a box set of superhero movies that sucked coming out in the future. It’d be on “I Love the New Millennium” and I’d want to help make fun of it. Since Superman flopped in 2006 there is no Batman vs. Superman (It was originally planned for Christmas of this year or sometime in 2009) or Justice League movie (Thank goodness!) coming out for awhile. I’m think they’re trying to give people time to forget the last Superman movie in order to help build up hype for the new one later.

This time around Warner Bros. Pictures Group President “…wants his next pack of superhero movies to be bathed in the same brooding tone as ‘The Dark Knight.’ Creatively, he sees exploring the evil side to characters as the key to unlocking some of Warner Bros.’ DC properties.”-comingsoon.net. By “DC properties” I think he meant making a good plot for the movie 😉 (You know like Marvel movies do except for that horrible horrible X-Men 3 movie where Cyclops got killed in the first 30 seconds for no good reason besides the fact that Brett Ratner wanted him to. I betcha Bryan Singer wishes he didn’t drop it to make Superman Returns now, but I digress.) How the heck do you show Superman as evil?
I’m betting they’re gonna:

A. Copycat The Dark Knight by killing off the love interest Louis Lane
B. Find some red Kryptonite like in Smallville and make sure it gets stuck in him somehow

Wasn’t Superman emo enough in Superman Returns? I guess not. I’m gonna look for some Kryptonite razor blades to give them so he can go cut himself to make the movie better this time around.

Wonderwoman would totally be a lesbian

August 15, 2008 at 11:24 am (Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I found another really cool article on The Topless Robot. It’s “10 Reasons No One Cares About Wonder Woman.” I’ll give you the rundown of the list but make sure to check out the article yourself. It has really good examples of each case.

10. Her costume sucks (Scary blue patriotic granny panties ftl!)

9. No good storylines

8. Most comics are terrible (from what I’ve seen I agree)

7. Golden Age Wonder Woman was really lame

6. “Her Lasso of Bondage” (omg it’s so true, I mean seriously that lasso reminds me of how much of a hoe Stacy X (Apparently known as Ripcord now) is in X-men. Also has anyone ever noticed that Wonderwoman’s boots are so just red hooker boots? Somtimes really tacky hooker boots but still.)
She's gonna get ya!

She's gonna get ya!

5. The Invisible plane sucked (How dumb of an idea was the invisible plane I mean really!)
4. Terrible normal villains and almost no super-villains
3. Steve Trevor isn’t hot are desirable in any way (why is he in that comic, clearly she’s a lesbian people! I mean come on Amazon princess.)

2. No sidekicks or cool butler friends to speak of

1. She’s just a girl version of Superman (and Superman really sucks, seriously Batman could totally kick his ass any day of the week. It’s why he never joined the Justice League. 😉 )

I’d like to add one to the list actually. She has no real secret identity. One of the main good things about superheroes is that they have to hide their secret lives from their loved ones so that

A. They don’t think they’re a freak and leave them 😉 and
B. So no super-villian decides to kidnap them and hold them for randsom or kill them.

Plus isn’t the whole part of a super heroes secret identity supposed to make them relateable and nobody wants to relate to a blue granny panty wearing Amazon that wears hooker boots! Does she ever wear normal clothes?

Am I really that gay looking?

August 3, 2008 at 10:19 pm (Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I found this hilarious video on College Humor making fun of Superhero outfits :D. I love the part about Spiderman because Mary Jane doesn’t hesitate to offer her opinion on the Spidersuit. I also really love the part with Professor Xavier and Wolverine. I mean how many times has Professor X. had other people think about killing him because he was a bit too nosey? lol. It’s also fun to see Captain Planet get laughed at. Anyways, enjoy this video and I’ll post more later :).
