    The Hollywood Reporter, which I trust way more than El Miyambi or Faraci, says that the Creative Committee isn't disbanding, they will continue to work within the company but will have less direct control over the direction of the MCU and will instead be more like most creative consultants in film. However they are going to maintain or increase their level of control on Marvel's animation slate, merchandising and comics.

    Man, I wish someone would exercise some kind of quality control on Marvel's animation slate.

    Yeah if this works out to the MCU getting more budget and also freedom to cast and go a little crazier and Marvel's animation department getting a swift kick in the ass and becoming something actually worthwhile I'd be pretty dang happy.

    although from what I've read I think the Creative Committee could really use more Creative

    right now, it's got Brian Bendis (writer), Joe Quesada (artist), Dan Buckley (executive), and Alan Fine (executive)

    Stephen Rider is playing Blake Tower, a DA who is sympathetic to Daredevil's Crusade and helps him out, on Season 2 as a series regular.

    Marvel is casting a lot of PoC actors for their Netflix stuff which is really neat but I wish it would translate to the films more

    It is VERY geared towards the age group of the protagonists.

    If I were 14/15 years old and into cartoons I'd probably love it.

    But, the NAMES. Kid Flash is the worst name ever.

    Well, that stuff is straight from the comics

    And that's fine. I'm not even opposed to "teenage group of superheroes" as a concept, but I do wish they weren't basically copies of their parent characters, so really Kid Flash is the only one I don't like, because he's basically JL flash, just younger and thus even more obnoxious. I've always like Robin as a personality foil to Batman (though I'm surprised they went with Dick Grayson Robin and not Tim Drake) so that works well, and Aqualad/Superboy/Miss Martian (though that NAME again) all act different enough from their namesakes to be interesting.

    I mean Kid Flash is literally a younger version of JL Flash because they are both Wally West

    Speaking of Wally

    (Young Justice S2 spoilers)
    Remember how, in Young Justice the Justice League got into trouble because Savage made them attack some space station while he was controlling them?

    And how all six involved in the attack ended up turning themselves in, as a sort of nod to when that happened in JLU?

    They left out Flash this time, because Wally is Kid Flash instead of Flash Sr.. I kinda liked that.

    Marvel's animation department actually has some very talented people working for them. Eric Radomski is the senior vice president for their Animation Studio, although he doesn't do any of the writing. They also have Paul Dini writing for their some of their shows.

    Just thinking back to Rise of the Silver Surfer and my favourite quote from it:

    Military dude: [to the Silver Surfer]
    "There are certain things I'm not permitted to do because they're considered human rights violations. Fortunately, you're not human."

    I can't remember much of the film, but that quote has stuck with me. It's chilling and fills me with a sense of dread for the future.

    I give Young Justice a tons of leeway because they did an awesome job with Blue Beetle.

    The way it recaps the blue beetle legacy was genius.

    Apparently, they got a fair way through recording the season 2 dialogue, when someone realized that people kept calling him Jamie instead of Jaime.

    So they ended up re-recording all of those lines, which was nice of them.

    Oh my fucking god, this is priceless.

    So, you know how Bleeding Cool has spent probably the last year portraying Ike Perlmutter as a tyrant, so enraged at the fact that Marvel doesn't has the film rights to Fantastic Four and X-men that he's built up a conspiracy to eliminate them from all marketing and cancel the books etc. etc.?

    Well it seems BC has a new target; Kevin Fiege. Implying that the Creative Committe forsaw a bunch of issues in AoU that Fiege ignored, resulting in eventual reshoots, and that Fiege decided to get rid of anyone who was actively second-guessing him in front of Disney. The kicker in all this? In addition to the Creative Committee, they're portraying Perlmutter as a victim in this story, saying things like "If it wasn't for him, Marvel Studios wouldn't exist" and basically implying that Fiege has been leaking stories that portray him in a negative light.

    So, for those of you following at home. Bleeding Cool has posted story after story over the past year about what a turd Ike Perlmutter is, and is now posting articles about how Ike Perlmutter has been unfairly represented in the media as part of a conspiracy by Kevin Fiege.

    Comedy Gold.

    It's cause they're contradictory

    They try to stir up any controversy they can to get hits so when the narrative from Marvel was "no the X-Men and F4 aren't going to disappear" they provided their bullshit counter narrative

    Now that the popular narrative is Fiege leading Marvel Studios away from an obsessive, frugal CEO they are providing their bullshit counter narrative

    They have no journalistic integrity and don't care that they don't because they're a glorified tabloid that every once in a while gets a rumor right

    It didn't help that parts of Marvel were, namely the merchandising wing of the company, because they had no reason to advertise characters they didn't own in every capacity

    But yeah the actual meat of the story was complete bullshit

    Honestly I do kind of hope we get a relatively new set of folks at the helm after Infinity War. It's good that they've got some sort of overarching creative team making sure things connect and relate and effectively share a universe. But after Infinity War, they should only need, like, 2-3 people to hang on to as continuity gurus.

    Marvel's marketing and licensing is just boneheaded in general, given how they treated Widow in the AoU stuff.

    It is probably one of the better attempts to replicate the success of Buffy speak. Although, they may have overused it a bit.

    However, it does seem like YJ doesn't have nearly as many great lines as JL/JLU or the DCAU in general. I can't really think of any YJ quote that's as memorable as, "I threw a rock at him!" or "No. 'Cause I'm evil." or "Sir, you're the very model of sanity. By the way, I've pressed your tights and put away your exploding gas balls."

    They actually allowed the character to get resolution over the death of his parents so he can evolve as a person and move on and seek happiness in his life.That's kind of what ultimately the other Bat Family characters better and more interesting than Bruce Wayne. Writers are actually allowed to move forward with those characters. Although they do occasionally screw up on a cataclysmic scale, like with Cassandra Cain. Whereas with Batman, they never have him get over the death of his parents and constantly revert back to being a sad loner.

    For some reason, this makes me think of Batman as a less extreme version of the Punisher. I wonder if that's how they got that crossover.

    Dick Grayson was in the latest issue of Midnighter, so of course they went to a sauna and had a fight scenes wearing only towels.

    I'm glad they actively use Grayson as a "sex icon". Like, it doesn't do anything for me, but it's nice to see them present a male character in the way that 99% of female comic characters are presented.
