Electromax: Dunno what the waif-fu part means though


I think (I'm just guessing) that he means the "tiny little hot chick who can beat up huge guys and hold assault rifles at arms' length as if they were squirtguns" thing that a lot of movies and TV do these days. Whedon appears to be a fan of that particular trope.

The Martian Manhandler: Rwa2play: And yes DC fanboys: it's a clusterfark. When a lot of the hardcore DC fanbase they've had over the years is walking away from what the Didiot has created, you've got a major problem on your hands. Even worse, the likes of Jim Lee and Liefeld are walking away from DC. That's right, Lee and Liefeld walking away from a guaranteed paycheck. That's not normal, even for those two.

Jim Lee isn't going anywhere - he's the Co-Publisher of DC Comics.


My bad; I meant to say George Perez was the one who left. So if Perez and Liefeld are leaving, you know they're something very wrong happening at DC.

Liefeld has always had a reputation for being hard to get along with (look at how quickly he left the whole Heroes Reborn thing -- hell, look at how quickly he split from the cash cow that was mid-90s Image). He may be walking away because no one's trying hard to keep him there.

My girlfriend was watching Roseanne on tv the other day and as it wrapped up I noticed Joss Whedon credited as the writer. So, there's that.

No because it wasn't the hot version of the sister. It was the first version of the sister where she looked identical to my sister at that age.

Kuroshin: As much as I dislike most of his TV shows (Firefly is the only good one), I really like what he did with Avengers. I'm very okay with this. Guy gets comic books.


That he does. His run on X-men was pretty great. THIS IS WHAT X3 WAS BASED ON, THIS IS WHAT IT COULD HAVE BEEN!!!!

Also...



/seriously marvel, after he makes you a few billion w/ the first three, let him do avengers 4 as a musical

Next to last season. There was original Becky, then Hot Doctor Becky took over, the original Becky came back for the next-to-last season, but left again and Hot Doctor Becky took over again for the final season.

I should have guessed. It was that generation of tv that gave us the tropes.

Rwa2play: Empty Matchbook: And yeah, I think a lot of haters didn't realize how good they had it with Tom Jane as Punisher considering he was preceded by Dolph Lundgren and proceeded by the line "Some days I'd like to get my hands on GOD!!!!".

Just to prove your point, who wouldn't like to see "Dirty Laundry" expanded into a two-hour movie.


Right? I was wondering what that clicking sound throughout my viewing of that short was until I looked down and saw my JAW ON THE FLOOR!

This is good news all around. Whedon nailed Avengers - even gave us a Hulk that could actually carry a film or two on his own. I'm cautiously optimistic about the announced TV series. But it would be even cooler to see him do a miniseries of standalone 45-55 minute stories for the heroes who won't end up in the film universe. She-Hulk, Cable, Dazzler, Spider-Woman, Ms. Marvel, Agent Brand (Whedon's own creation)... they could even kick off that series with a standalone Samuel Jackson Nick Fury story. Whedon could pull off some good mini-films with a low budget.

(my daughter would also like someone to bring back Super Hero Squad just long enough to do a comical Secret Wars animated movie, but that's probably not going to happen)

imashark: Batman: Under the Red Hood and Young Justice are the best animated effort to come out of DC in a loooooong time.


A live action Under The Red Hood would be fantastic. Some of the DC animated movies were weaker than others, but UTRH, Superman: Doomsday, and Justice League: Doom were brilliant movies. And they proved that an audience doesn't need the childhood-to-donning-the-costume introduction and backstory to understand what is happening. A good story is a good story.

Dammit! I so wanted DC to do an animated Supergirl movie. That would've been epic.

Cable and Dazzler are mutants, I believe all mutants are owned by Fox.

Watch out Superman vs The Elite. It's incredible. It addresses many of the complaints Superman haters have had over the years and also serves as a great intro to the character for the people who only have Reeve's version in their minds.

A live action version of that would be EPIC beyond belief and make a billion dollars easily.

Sure, but that doesnt mean theyre not still great. Thats like saying Iron Man 2 or Thor is the weakest of the Marvel studios movies. Its true, but theyre no Catwoman or Rise of the Silver Surfer or Spider Man 3 or Jonah Hex or Elektra or Ghost Rider or Superman 4 or Batman and Robin or...

With the exception of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, they can be in Marvel movies, they just cant mention their dad.

Although she's a big part of it, Apocalypse is not really a Supergirl movie.

Actually Apocalypse kind of worried me, as the writing was a real let down from previous DC Animated movies. The bits with WW and Paradise Island are forced and the dialogue between Barda and Diana on Apokolips is just farking appalling ("I just wanted to let you know how much I've always respected you ... "), skin crawlingly bad.

However it manages to rescue itself with some awesome Batman action and the ending.

Kinda disagree there; I'm guessing that the story takes place sometime after Barda was freed from Darkseid's control. It did seem forced though.

Batman was awesome; the ending could've been better. Didn't understand why they couldn't have the entire roster of DC heroes there to witness it as in the story itself.

Well, yeah. She's living on earth and married Scott Free, but she's still Big Barda, former leader of Darkseid's Furies and one of Granny Goodness's best pupils.

It's not that she wouldn't respect Diana, they're both warriors, it's that Barda wouldn't engage in such a pointless and mawkish conversation.

If there was a need to demonstrate that Barda respects Diana (not sure why) then show it, don't just have her say it.
