Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

  • Re: [Marvel MCU] Age of Ultron has it's own thread, talk about other Marvel stuff here!

    Siddig was my personal choice for Strange, but I can't be bent out of shape for Cumberpatch. He is a fantastic actor and he did pretty great selling himself as Kahn despite the ridiculous plot.

    Swinton will do fine as the Ancient One.

    My biggest curiosity is who will play Death in Strange.

    Also, I'm really hoping the upcoming Iron Fist will include a meaty part for probably the most prominent Asian Marvel character, Shang-Chi. I mean, you can't do an Iron Fist show without Danny's BFF, can you? (BFF besides Cage, that is)

    If Ward doesn't become Taskmaster, it'll be a crime.

    that's what happens when you have a showrunner that doesn't believe the kind of stuff that's being done in Flash (villains like Captain Boomerang) could ever work on TV, yet thinks the best Batman villain is King Tut

    I read this interview and one thing stuck out to me and really makes me giggle with what over the top horribleness they have in mind:
    We’re going to answer a lot of questions about The Joker that were raised this season,” says Heller referring to The Blind Fortune Teller episode which introduced the cackling character of Jerome, who confesses to Gordon that he killed his mother. The Joker according to Batman comic lore can’t fully come into play as himself until his cowled rival is himself in costume, and we are far away from that happening on Gotham, this storyline is more of an origins one. “There’s so much revealed in the first three episodes,” says Heller, “Jerome contains the DNA of The Joker, but if he isn’t him than how does someone else appear to be the Joker? How does The Joker’s identity transfer into somebody else’s body?”

    All I can say is lolwut? O_o

    OH GOD!
    tonight’s episode also opened the door on a passageway down to a dark, damp cellar; one which young Bruce Wayne is certain to enter, accessed via a bookcase in his family mansion’s library. It’s arguably the Bat Cave. “In the writers’ room we’re calling it his Dad’s office,” specifies Heller. In terms of how this discovery will impact young Wayne next season, Heller continues, “he’ll learn that his parents are more complicated than he imagined. When you’re a young kid, parents tend to be either heroes or villains; mostly heroes. It’s hard to imagine just before Bruce’s age when your parents can do no wrong. You can’t imagine them having secret lives. Bruce will learn that his father was a complex, tortured person, but also heroic. His father was leading a double life and this leads to the creation of an alter ego. It’s hard for anyone to present the fullness of themselves to the general public. If you have dark secrets to keep, you have to create an alter ego. That is the essence of what the Batcave means.”

    So his dad was a crime fighter in this origin and it will motivate Bruce to also become a crime fighter. o_O

    I don't understand how DC is ok with what this show is pulling considering how protective they are of the Batman IP.
