As usual – talk about whatever you like as long as it’s related to movies, TV or Screen Rant itself – just remember to play nice. icon smile Open Discussion   May 12, 2014

  1. OD is dead today.

    • Because it was late, Im Batman!

    • We mostly talk about CBM or SW, but since there are fresh articles on all of those, most may see no need for OD (I guess?).

  2. I am very excited by the coming reveal of the Batmobile in BvS…the tease was intriguing. Also, I am quite happy about how “Constantine” seems to be coming along.

  3. BATMOBILE!

  4. Good…eh…errr….morning (?) all…
    (I guess it’s morning somewhere….right?)

    Happy Monday!!  :)

    Better late than never…..

    Arrow and AoS season finales this week and Godzilla on Friday!!! Great week ahead!

    So I watched Son of Batmn over the weekend. While I do not think it’s as bad as everybody says it is, IMO, it’s certainly not WB/DC’s best work either. The animation, especially in the beginning was….well…rough. The characters were all cool and I could get used to Damian. The voice actor for Deathstroke, IMO, did not fit the character and was a distraction.

    Also, would it be too much to ask that Kevin Conroy just voice every animated version of Batman from here on out? Sign the guy up long term already.
    Nothing against Jason O’Mara, he’s just not Kevin Conroy. Overall it wasn’t horrible, it just wasn’t the quality product that I’ve come to expect from WB/DC animation over the years.

    I also watched as much as I could stomach of Punisher Warzone over the weekend. Whatever possessed somebody to not only make, but releases that film is just beyond me. Whoa, that was was a clinic on how not to make a CBM. What an embarrassment. No wonder Thomas Jane was so upset.

    • Deathstroke & Batman’s VAs were both distractions. I also couldn’t get how Damien was knocking up Ubu (I think that’s the big guy’s name) like I was playing Street Fighter or something. How does a kid juggle a big guy like that? Just weird stuff all around. Hopefully the Arkham animated film is less distracting.

  5. FROM HYDRA HQ’s blog:

    The latest rumor floating across the Hydra HQ desk is in regard’s to FOX’s unannounced Deadpool film. Originally, we thought Ryan Reynolds would be given another chance at the Wade Wilson role, but it turns out that after NBC cancelled Community last week that I started thinking perhaps Joel McHale could pull off this role. At one point, I was thinking maybe Justified’s Timothy Olyphant would be another good candidate, so let’s just assume that FOX is looking into both actors for a film that they have not officially announced.

    • I like Olyphant’s comedic pacing at times, but I’m not sure he has the energy that Wilson has. McHale would have to do some serious combat training and working out lol, but yeah he’s kinda in the same boat as Olymphant. All in all, I can’t see Fox doing Deadpool right. I wasn’t impressed with the leaked script a few years back. Maybe it’ll work for the “Project X”/”21 & Under” crowd, but it’s no memorable blockbuster.

    • This might be out there, but what about Neil Patrick Harris? Deadpool is somewhat in line with NPH’s charisma and comedic side.

  6. @ Stark

    Yea, i saw that in theater. I couldn’t finish Elektra. I never bothered to watch Catwoman neither.

  7. Thanks to the Prof for helping me find OD 5/12. I had to go back a page or two to find it.

    So, uh, nice Batsuit?

    • No problem! Of course, this is the least commented on OD in quite a long time.

      I do like the Batsuit and what I can see about the Batmobile looks cool. But, Batman’s posture and facial expression instantly made me compare him to the Sad Kanye memes that have been circulating the internet lately.

      • I didn’t see the OD until today. I use the link that Vic posted that has all the OD’s.

        I think his posture is meant to show his age/worn out body. I was hoping they were going to continue with the New 52 look of the chin, like they did for Flash.

    • I love the suit. Its totally different. Its new and refreshing. He isn’t a power ranger. I’d like to see more photos!
