Sometimes it feels like we discuss nothin’ at all!
I apologize for some brief periods of poor sound quality, overheating issues with recording equipment.
Enjoy and thanks for listening!
Amazon recently announced that they will be picking up The Tick! live action TV series that was short lived on Fox back in 2003. The Tick, originally a comedic comic book character written and drawn by Ben Edlund, will once again star Patrick Warburton (Puddy from Seinfeld) as The Tick, but as of right now costars David Burke (rabbit moth Arthur), Liz Vassey (Captain Liberty), or Nestor Carbonell (Batmanuel, or Die Fledermaus in the comics and cartoon.) I hope we see some Chairface and Sewer Urchin personally!
Edlund, who has previous done episodes for Firefly, Star Wars The Clone Wars, and been involved with The Venture Bros, will once again write and produce the updated live action show. Amazon has committed to offering up the pilot for free, and pending viewer response, will look to order more episodes. Make sure you check it out!
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced today that he will be playing the role of Captain Marvel’s nemesis, the sometimes antihero Black Adam in the upcoming Shazam movie from New Line Cinema and DC Comics.
The Rock has been teasing his possible role in a future DC movie, however many thought he would be playing the eponymous role of Shazam in a rumored extremely kid friendly film.
With Dwayne confirmed to be Black Adam I am hoping the movie will take a darker route – and personally I think that he can fill the position of Black Adam perfectly, as he was (and sometimes still is) the Most Electrifying Man in all of Sports Entertainment! Ironic, no?
Marvel recently announced that they Have a Plan with their new Unlimited Plus promotion; $99.99 nets you a full year of their digital comic subscription service, allowing you to view over 15,000 Marvel back issues on IOS and Android devices, as well as straight from the internet on your PC. In addition to this, the Plus program adds extra incentives to sign up for the year long commitment, chief of which is an exclusive Marvel Legends Rocket Raccoon Variant figure, which looks to be a repaint of the 2013 Marvel Legends Wave 5 Build a Figure Rocket Raccoon.
Also included is a physical Limited Edition Variant issue of Rocket Raccoon #1, a personalized Marvel Unlimited Plus Membership card, invitation to members only events, and 15% off their digital comic shop if you are into current release issues, along with 10% off merchandise at MarvelShop.com
I’m a sucker for offers like these, and there are definitely some back issue series I’d like to check out.. Maybe I’ll subscribe and provide a review of the service and little Rocket in the near future! Once I burn through my backlog of current trade paper backs that is..
Okay, its not really news – I just really wanted to use that title. What is new is the above poster that the CW released on The Flash Facebook page featuring young Barry Allen, police forensic scientist for Central City, zig zagging around town in his red rubber suit. MTV.com has written a great article pointing out all the Easter Eggs in the background of the poster, including a Queens Consolidated building in the background and some graffiti stating “GRODD LIVES.”
The Flash, which is a spin off of CW’s Arrow live action TV show based on DC Comic’s Green Arrow, debuts on Tuesday October 7th. I cant wait!
