Aes Sidhe

Wishful thinking announcements I’d like to see out of the big two at SDCC this weekend:

  • Marvel: Ant-Man isn’t working out right now, so we’re pushing it back so we can do it right.
  • Marvel: We are instead ramping up production on solo Falcon and Black Widow films.
  • Marvel: We have slated our Phase 3 films, at the forefront is Black Panther and Captain Marvel.
  • Marvel: Yes, Captain Marvel will be Carol Danvers, but we’ll see a second lady donning the red, gold, and blue by the end of the film.
  • DC: Confirmed Jason Momoa for Aquaman.
  • DC: Confirmed Dwayne Johnson for Shazam/Captain Marvel.
  • DC: Announce increased focus on executing their own movie line
  • DC: Leading our lineup will be Justice League, Shazam, and Wonder Woman.
  • DC: Still finalizing the order, but Cyborg, Aquaman, Vixen, Green Lantern/Flash, Batwoman, Hawkman/Hawkgirl, Justice League International, and a Teen Titans film aimed at the younger auduiences are in early planning stages.

Constantine is lighting up Comic-Con. Head over to the Dome at Gaslamp Sq. for a 360 degree experience from Hell.

Both are giant, stupid corporations that only see fans as money. The profit from our bickering and rivalry; just like the video games industry does in console wars.

Indeed. They encourage it, and it doesn’t help things on our end when we buy into that versus mentality.

I swear the entire DC Comics versus Marvel shenanigans is like Microsoft versus Apple. Both companies do great stuff. But companies do a lot of not good stuff. Both deserve praise for the good and shaming for the bad. And yet… because DC is more or less failing in the PR department while Marvel is…

The Apple/Microsoft Analogy is actually funny to me because, I love to JOKE about how Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is doing great PR about looking progressive. And I am crazy excited about the Rock and Drogo getting to be powerhouses in the DC Cinematic Universe…DC, evil? No. DC putting it’s foot in it’s mouth sometimes, but I love their comics just as much as I love Marvel’s.

I laugh over elf’s analogy because I really don’t like Apple and prefer MS ^_^

I’m glad you like it. You know me. I love my DC heroes, but I’m barely reading anything DC right now because I’m not digging the execution (I think I’m down to just Flash). On the other hand, Marvel’s Ms Marvel, All New Ghost Rider, and Captain Marvel have my loyalty right now. I’m also about 3 months behind because work and cosplay. It’s funny that for all my heart belongs mostly to DC characters, I’m enjoying more Marvel stuff right now — and the PR by both DC corporate and individual creators that need PR training are a big part of that.

I really want Marvel to do Falcon, Black Panther, Black Widow, and Captain Marvel tentpole movies because the while maleness of the MCU is getting really absurd. I am so incredibly not hyped for Superman vs Batman, but I’m going to see it because 1) I like Cavil”s Supes reasonably well and 2) I am extremely stoked for the promised Justice League cameos of Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and Aquaman. They need to go ahead and formally announce The Rock and Momoa — use this weekend to get full hype behind it.

I prefer MS overall too, but like DC they really need to work on how they’re viewed by the general public. Haha.

BOOK 3 MOVING TO DIGITAL RELEASE!

Hey Korra Nation! Phew. Some of you may have heard versions of this news elsewhere, but here’s the official word. After this Friday’s on-air premiere of Episode 8 “The Terror Within” at 8/7c, all remaining Book 3 episodes will move to a digital rollout. That means two things: 1) Korra is NOT cancelled, 2) the remaining episodes will roll out weekly on Nick.com and the Nick app beginning August 1, as well as on platforms like Amazon, Google Play, Xbox and Hulu.

Thousands of you have been asking to watch this incredible show online, so hopefully this news works in your favor. Mike and Bryan created a breath-taking season for us all…so get ready to watch it all go down!!!

Thanks for being the BEST fans in the industry and see you at Comic-Con.

Welp. I guess this means Korra has been pulled from TV indefinitely if not permanently. Upside, it will probably make playing catch up easier since I’m two seasons behind.

I swear the entire DC Comics versus Marvel shenanigans is like Microsoft versus Apple. Both companies do great stuff. But companies do a lot of not good stuff. Both deserve praise for the good and shaming for the bad. And yet… because DC is more or less failing in the PR department while Marvel is really good at spinning up their good stuff there’s this overwhelming attitude of DC being the “evil” company while Marvel is the “good” company. Anyone that spends a decent amount of time trying to look at it objectively can see most of the mudslinging between the fans of the companies is mostly (to borrow an old phrase) “the pot calling the kettle black”.

Just an opportunity for the DC Nation Fans group to get together and hang out a bit before SDCC gets into full swing. Everyone is welcome to join.

We’ll be meeting in the lobby bar, so to drink booze you’ll have to be 21+. Drinking alcohol is in no way required as this is primarily a social gathering. I will try to arrive early and commandeer a table. I’ll post a photo to the FB event when I arrive, but look for the Aya plush.
