Shakman has a strong television directing resume, including episodes for Succession, The Boys, Billions, Game of Thrones, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Heroes Reborn, Fargo, Psych, Mad Men, House, Ugly Betty, The Nine, Everybody Hates Chris, Boston Legal and, of course, WandaVision. Good mix of overseeing drama and comedy with a healthy dose of satire thrown in also. Movies are a different beast though.

I was a little apprehensive when it was announced that the Russo’s would be taking over Captain America, but they obviously knocked it out of the park. Based on that, and how much I enjoyed WandaVision, I’m giving this the benefit of the doubt.

What madman picked Quicksilver to beat Flash?
ha ha. I had another thought on the matter.

I wonder how many voters for Quicksilver saw X-Men: Days of Future Past, witnessed Pietro (sorry "Peter" :rolleyes: ) running so fast saving Erik and Logan, and seeing prison guards and them frozen in slow motion so much they looked like statues. Then they watched Barry run fast enough to both BREAK and REVERSE the freaking flow of time in Zack Snyder's Justice League...


Sit back.

And say to themselves:

"Wow. Quicksilver is faster than The Flash!"

:laugh:

Basically the same. Kon-El has telekinesis also. He is a clone who processes solar energy far slower than someone born on Krypton, so their power levels are not the same.
Well, as much of a Spider-Man fan as I am, I don't see how he'd have the slightest chance against someone with those powers.

I think they're on equivalent power levels.. At the time, Spider-man had a ton more experience and his Spider-sense. He beat he herald of Galactus before (Firelord)

Given equivalent power levels (even if their powers differed in nature), Experience will probably win.

Okay, so Superboy is nowhere near as powerful as Superman...like, not even in his dreams.

seeing how i am skeptical about Wanda Vision ..especially the I love Lucy bid .. i'll have to look at his other resume credentials which i approve of Mad Men, Games of Thrones
If he was a part of the first two Fargo's ..i'm a fan of his ...

Boston Legal, House and of course ..the Boys .. is enuff to suggest to me yeh let's see if he can " finally" resurrect the ghosts of FF ...to which i really believe is gonna be the Last Hurrah for FF franchise .

...and hate to depend upon the movie review critics .. but it's gonna be up to the critics to seal it ... the FF studios have disappointed and it's gonna take quite a bit
for the public to trust FF again ... :oops:

Brie Larson isn't sure that "anyone wants" her to play Captain Marvel again

Since starring as the intergalactic superhero Captain Marvel in the MCU’s first film focused on a woman lead, Brie Larson has faced the constant ire of sexist Marvel fanboys and their twitchy Twitter fingers. Utilizing the classic online tool of misogyny, that specific group of fans has review-bombed Captain Marvel, gotten mad at her cheeky Instagram posts, and dissected her to a degree that reads as overly invested for people that hate her.

That’s a lot for anyone to handle, and Larson seems to be well over the internet trolls as revealed in an interview at the D23 Expo this past weekend

The Fantastic Four didn’t fail, Fox did. Just like they failed with Daredevil, Elektra, Punisher, Ghost Rider, and ultimately even tanked the X-Men.

Marvel’s track record is entirely different.

Reminds me of the 70's movie The Beast Must Die.
I rather enjoyed that one and might watch as my midnight movie tonight after a night cap.
I agree @Corso, I too was getting The Beast Must Die vibes from the Werewolf by Night trailer as well.

Maybe we will get Mahershala Ali as Blade in Lockhart's role. Or just a cameo. Enjoy The Mads tonight.

10 Arguments Every DC Comics Fan Has Been In
By Gab Hernandez | Screen Rant
September 12, 2022

Temp-1400x700(63).png


The DCEU is in seemingly dire straits. The recent WB-Discovery merger has led to many cancellations, some of which were DC projects such as Batgirl. Regardless of what these projects’ quality would have been, fans do agree that it’s a terrible situation for all the creative talents involved.

Still, these cancellations have reignited some old arguments. After all, the DCEU has had a bit of an identity crisis lately. Mostly because DC fans can’t seem to agree on what DC should be, whether it’s in comics, movies, or video games. So much so, that some talking points have been repeated over and over.

Titans Season 4 Casts Bosch Star Titus Welliver as Iconic DC Villain
By Russ Burlingame | comicbook.com
September 12, 2022

Titus Welliver, the Bosch and Deadwood star who has also appeared on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD and Castlevania, has been cast in the role of Lex Luthor on Titans. The actor, according to the EW story, is actually a big DC fan, who has been waiting for a call like this for years. This is as good a time as any for him to play the role, considering that the series' upcoming fourth season will deal with the revelation that Superboy was cloned in part from Luthor's DNA, a twist introduced in the comics from by writer Geoff Johns.

Superboy will be dealing with that reality throughout the season, and while it's unlikely we'll get to see the other half of his DNA matrix (after all, there are already two different live-action Supermen currently in action), Lex is making his first DC TV appearance since the end of Supergirl, The CW series which starred Superman IV: The Quest For Peace star Jon Cryer in the role.
