    those statues have legs though??

    Yeah but they're on a pedestal which is similar to how their base looks, which is what Jules is saying

    It's a good handwave but it is still lame those zords are just statues on skateboards instead of having legs

    Oh man, I remember those zords now! I remember thinking that tthe blue, yellow, and black ones were dumb because they didn't have legs.

    That'd probably be because they were most likely based of statues of the animals they represent

    Oh jeez, I had no idea that Platinum Transformers game is out on Tuesday (as far as I'm concerned that is Rock Band Week)

    Here's hoping for that thing

    Activision can't put out two huge trainwrecks two weeks in a row

    ...can they?

    Impressions from people who got it early make it sound like the game is awesome

    It's like Metal Gear Rising with Witch Time and loot drops

    Ha wow

    Whedon just said on the Ultron commentary that they had originally only hired Serkis to be mo-cap trainer for Ruffalo and Spader and then they saw that some fan online had posted a picture of Serkis speculating that he was playing Klaue and decided yeah, that actually really works.

    Lots of interesting nuggets from the commentary.

    - Was torn on using the abandoned building during the Hulkbuster fight. Referred to callously evoking imagery from 9/11 as "unthinkable".
    - The girl that plays Hawkeye's daughter was also John C. Reilly's daughter in Guardians.
    - The "no one will know" speech from Hawkeye was improv from Renner.
    - Whedon allowed himself one personal indulgence. In Thor's witch-induced dream, there is a brief glimpse of three apocalyptic figures in animalistic masks. The masks are of a wolf, a ram, and a hart.

    So apparently the Power Rangers reboot movie that's currently in development doesn't seem to be considering any black guys for the role of Zack

    But perhaps the biggest potential shakeup stands for previously African American Black Ranger Zack whose shortlist includes It Follows actor Daniel Zovatto, Chasing Life’s Ross Butler and actor/rapper Brian “Sene” Marc.

    I wouldn't necessarily think that precludes other characters from being black.

    I haven't been paying much attention but last time I checked they wern't basing the movie off of the first team. Is this accurate or just people hearing that someone is being considered for a Black Ranger and filling in the blanks perhaps incorrectly.

    According to the article there at least, they are supposed to be the same characters as the first team.

    I'd be fine with making Zach not black so long as it doesn't result in a team of all white people.

    It's especially usefull if they get away from "Black guy is the black ranger, asian lady is the yellow ranger" stuff.

    Yeah but they don't seem to offer any proof of that. Which is why I'm skeptical.

    Looks like the casting information I've heard of came from Heroic Hollywood, so it's suspect information.

    Variety is reporting the same info, and they're rarely wrong.

    That doesn't mean that they should whitewash the role, it sucks they're doing that

    That casting reminds me of the time 4chan's /m/echa board pooled money to send someone in to audition for Power Rangers Samurai.

    He got in to the last rounds, but didn't make it. He said the people running it couldn't agree with each other, as the script was basically a straight translation of an early Shinkenger episode, so he played his character the same way he was in the sentai, and only one 'judge' person knew the material and thought it was great. The others all thought he sounded horrible and wanted him to play the character the exact opposite. I believe it was the 'punk/rebel' type and they wanted him to be polite and respectful, even though he had all the same sarcastic lines from the original.
