    At least we'll always have the Transformers franchise for toyetic shows. Heck, the female bots got/are getting toys with the current toyline.

    We either need a cartoon company with a benevolent dictator (privately-held, run by a non-jackass), or a serious crowdsourcing movement so we can get more decent animation that survives on its merits.

    On the one hand, crazy executives kill great stuff all the time. On the other hand, their whims bring them to life in ways far, far beyond what crowdsourcing could possibly do. Like Korra, or (to use a movie example) New Line handing over an unlimited budget to a relative unknown to make a Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    And I really don't think shows being "toyetic" are over now. Marvel shows, Pokemon, the various anime card/spinny thing shows, etc. Besides, we've had insane adult toy collectors for decades now.

    The thing to remember is that all this stuff is based on executive whim. Sure, they try to make decisions based on maximizing the audience, but often times they'll make decisions based on personal whims. They love show X, they don't get show Y at all, they'd rather not show Z succeed because it was greenlit by a predecessor and would make him look good, etc.

    But executives change all the time. Obviously, the Nick execs that practically buried the last book of Airbender aren't the same execs that decided to greenlight at least two seasons of Korra, with a bigger per-episode budget to boot, even after the movie disappointed.

    In other words, it's hard to say "the network hates X!" with any permanence.

    So what you're saying is, the entertainment industry is baseball before the events in the Moneyball movie?

    Speaking of crazy executives, apparently Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes will not be getting a season three.

    The reason, according to that article, is Jeph Loeb; the visionary who gave us Red Hulk now heads up Marvel's animation department.
    LOEB: That's certainly something that we're talking about. Earth's Mightiest Heroes has a tremendous following. One of the things that's very unique about that show is that it was at a time prior to my coming in. It is a very serialized show, and there are a lot of characters. What we wanted to do with Spider-Man, and going forward, was to tell stories that are individualized. Obviously, we want everybody to watch the show every week, but we also know that people's time is often taken. So, DVR the show, but if you're not going to do that, the idea is that you will be able to catch up. I don't ever want anybody to sit down on Sunday mornings at 11 o'clock and suddenly feel like, "Well, I lost the last three episodes, so I don't really know what's going on."

    I think the bolded is the telling part. Executives cancelling successful programs that they didn't develop is not unheard of in the TV business; what's surprising is when they all but come out and admit it.

    What he's saying is that "the youth audience, who know how to use household tech better than their parents, of a cartoon where the writers are allowed to kill people, though not graphically, is too thick to DVR shows when they're going to miss them so they can catch up at a later date, and even if they aren't are too shallow to get engaged in long-running storylines anyway, and even if they aren't they too stupid to follow the 'previously ons'."

    And there's nothing wrong with Red Hulk, just how Loeb wrote it.

    It seems like the eras of franchise comics and cartoons that I enjoy are all too short because before I can enjoy the new take or the re-introduction of older stuff, some fucking hack fanboy swoops in and makes it the way it was when he was a kid (although I don't think that Loeb's actual problem...), and currently I'm not at the age of most comic-book/cartoon execs.

    Well, I ment in name only like Ultimate Spider-Man. Hell apparently the Ultimates are going to be seen more in USM (we've already seen Iron Man), so they could just make a show based with those characters using the same animation. Oh god.

    I mean, I can understand why they want to do it that way. If they're going to have the shows feel like they take place in the larger Marvel Universe, that requires interaction that isn't hilariously and obviously non-canon in the other show. (Compare the Living Laser in EMH and his appearance in the most recent USM.)

    It's still stupid/shortsighted/petty/wasteful to create a show that's not in the same universe as the successful show already airing as an excuse to kill that show and replace it with something in line with the new show you're creating, as opposed to integrating the new show you're creating into the show that's already airing, but I can understand why a retarded blind douchebag egomaniac devil-worshipper hack might do it. That doesn't mean I have to like it or agree with it.

    I'm beginning to think that Loeb was given control of the animated end of Marvel simply so he'd stop screwing with the comics end of the franchise. Can't say I'd blame them if that's the case.

    Ultimate Spider-man is not in continuity with Marvel's films. Otherwise we'd see Spider-man, White Tiger, Luke Cage and Nova joining the Avengers in that film. It has a totally different tone, as well. The only recent cartoon I'd buy that would remotely be tied to that film universe is the Iron Man anime.

    I do. You don't give someone that incompetent more power, you give them less to reduce the damage they cause to the company. If they didn't want him messing with the comic division they needed to stop giving him assignments or at least high profile (and line wide effecting) jobs.

    I am currently picturing an Avengers show that has the Family Guy-esque presentation of Ultimate Spider-man and I can't help but groan.

    Even when Marvel does good in animation they seem to find a way to mess it up. Their animated movies started getting good so they killed them, Wolverine and the X-Men was awesome and it's gone, and the worst offender was Spectacular Spider-man. At least all those could a least partially be excused since I don't think they sold particularly well but EMH is doing great.

    You mean like Justice League? An amazing show that spanned 5 seasons, cemented a host of voice-actors as the voices of the comic book characters we've loved for decades, thus giving them a kind of solid continuity across multiple medias and making them stronger and more popular as result, as well as giving rise to awesome feature length animated films and video games year after year?

    Sheesh, I can see why you'd want to avoid treading that ground. Especially as there exists no technology to provide easy access to media, making it impossible for anyone to know anything about the show without the TeeVee.

    Gawd.

    So that rumor's confirmed then? I clicked the link, but I couldn't read it.

    I was introduced to Loeb through The Long Halloween, a pretty cool Batman story made better by Tim Sale's artwork. Then I read Superman For All Seasons, a very neat take on Superman again made that much more awesome by Tim Sale. So I admit, I have some affection for the guy.

    I guess I should say, had. When Heroes got all cocked up, I didn't think it had anything to do with him. Then the Ultimatum nonsense, and now canceling EMH for no significant reason? What the hell? That guy sucks.

    If you haven't watched Spectacular Spider-Man, you absolutely should. And you might as well watch the second season of the Avengers, since not only does it open the show up to the entire Marvel Universe, but it has a scene where the Hulk beats a robot to death by using The Thing as a club.

    At any rate, there's been a Pixar update. I'll just run down the future list:

    Brave's coming out June 22. If you haven't seen the scene they're using as a trailer, you absolutely should:



    Next June is Monsters University. Apparently back then Mike and Sulley didn't like each other.

    The year after that is The Good Dinosaur, a film about what would have happened if dinosaurs never went extinct.

    And in 2015, there's currently two films planned. The first is The Untitled Pixar Movie that Takes You Inside the Mind.

    And the second is Dia de los Muertos, an original film about The Day of the Dead.

    If you haven't watched Spectacular Spider-Man, you absolutely should. And you might as well watch the second season of the Avengers, since not only does it open the show up to the entire Marvel Universe, but it has a scene where the Hulk beats a robot to death by using The Thing as a club.

    At any rate, there's been a Pixar update. I'll just run down the future list:

    Brave's coming out June 22. If you haven't seen the scene they're using as a trailer, you absolutely should:



    Next June is Monsters University. Apparently back then Mike and Sulley didn't like each other.

    The year after that is The Good Dinosaur, a film about what would have happened if dinosaurs never went extinct.

    And in 2015, there's currently two films planned. The first is The Untitled Pixar Movie that Takes You Inside the Mind.

    And the second is Dia de los Muertos, an original film about The Day of the Dead.

    ...yep, Pixar sure is piling on the sequels.

    Hopefully it has John Goodman and a hallway on fire.

    Outside the actual comics, Spectacular Spider-man is the best representation of Spidey in any medium.

    Yep. It also has the only incarnation of Venom that makes any sense.

    So one of the next DC DTV things might be... Flashpoint?
    Whoops. Seems Kevin Conroy, known to most of us as Batman, may have let it slip what DC property is next to be adapted into an animated feature. While appearing on the Nerdist Channel‘s weekly comic book show, Comic Book Club, Conroy said,

    Oh I just, just last night, I recording a new animated movie…that features The Flash, it’s more about The Flash, but Batman is in it as well. It’s a Flash…Flashpoint! Flashpoint? I think it’s Flashpoint.

    Forget the whole New 52 thing; did anyone actually like Flashpoint for what it was?

    I heard that the Batman Flashpoint story and the Frankenstein story were good stuff, but the main story wasn't that good.

    I liked the Spider-man: TAS version.

    And a villain with the most fantastic backstory ever --- he became a bad guy because he has a pig for a leg.

    If you ever get a chance, watch the episode "Heroes" from the second season. Glorious.
