Forgot about commenting on Jubilee. The 1990's cartoon made her and her powers more kiddie like than in the comics.

I do not hold ethnicity is a strong obstacle in casting for fictional characters, especially comic book characters. For example, Marvel has switched up Betsy Braddock several times. Olivia Munn still ended up playing Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Not touching the Elliot Page comment. :muttley:

Not surprised by Armor's anonymity. Her character has been strictly bound to the comic book page mostly. I do remember her appearing in a Japanese anime version of the X-Men though (Netflix maybe..?)

X-23 is a character that belongs on the big screen. Everything you could do with Wolverine, you can do for her. The character appeared (and was presented adequately well) in the American cartoon X-Men: Evolution (Disney+).
I'm not a stickler for ethnicity either, but I wouldn't cast John Leguizamo to play Bruce Lee. If Blink's character is deeply affected by a strong Asian culture, I don't think it would work for her to be played by Ortega.

Marvel has made several iterations of Blink's character also. And one of those versions' birthplace was The Bahamas.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the character's mutancy (sp?) altered her outward appearance more than once. Pencillers and inkers are always drawing characters NOT EXACTLY the same over time. ;)

I am not a casting director or producer but I do not think this specific character would get boxed in as far as choosing an actress is concerned. Now, I do confess NEVER wanting to see Leguizamo playing Bruce Lee. Ever. :laugh:

Batman/Spawn: The Deluxe Edition Cover Revealed (Exclusive)

By Timothy Adams | ComicBook
January 13, 2023

DC is releasing a deluxe edition of the highly-anticipated Batman/Spawn crossover. The two iconic heroes reunited last year for Batman/Spawn #1 by legendary creators Todd McFarlane and Greg Capullo, two individuals who are very familiar with those characters. Of course, Todd McFarlane created Spawn after leaving Marvel and helping form Image Comics, while Greg Capullo collaborated with Scott Snyder and McFarlane on multi-year, fan-favorite runs on both Batman and Spawn, respectively. Batman/Spawn was officially announced last summer at San Diego Comic-Con and with the 48-page one-shot now available, we've got our first look at the deluxe edition cover that goes on sale April 4th.

Supergirl Fan Art Makes the Case for Chloe Grace Moretz to Join the DCU

By Jeremy Dick | MovieWeb
January 16, 2023

We could end up seeing a new Supergirl flying into the picture for the new DCU established by James Gunn and Peter Safran. With the future of the DCU still unclear ahead of more official announcements from the new heads of DC Studios, there has been a lot of speculation over which characters will be reimagined with new actors, disregarding previous castings for Justice League and its connected films. Online, horrific.heroics on Instagram has joined the fray with new fan art of Chloë Grace Moretz in the role of Supergirl, and you can take a look below.

Ms. Marvel Was The Best Superhero Series Of 2022 (According To Rotten Tomatoes)

By Dan Conlin | Game Rant
January 16, 2023

ms-marvel-peacemaker-she-hulk.jpg


2022 saw several new superhero shows and movies debut, but it looks like Ms. Marvel has beaten the rest of its peers out for the top spot. The Disney Plus Marvel series was everything its creators had hoped for, topping one major list of all the shows that came out last year. But there will always be some disagreement with these things.

While viewers were able to enjoy plenty of great comic book-related content in 2022, there were a few offerings that shot above the rest with undeniable gusto. The movies are one thing, but superhero shows have been enjoying a bit of a renaissance lately, at least from a certain point of view. Sure, the CW may have axed most of its still pretty excellent DC series, but that possibly helped pave the way for other platforms to have a fair crack at it without getting viewers burnt out too quickly. At least, that was probably the idea.

Among the new and returning superhero shows in 2022, Rotten Tomatoes officially ranked Ms. Marvel as the champ. The film and TV review aggregator site even added a little blurb explaining their conclusion. "The MCU grew by Moon Knight, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, and even Werewolf by Night in 2022, but it was season 1 of Ms. Marvel, about a Pakistani-American superhero and led by charming star Iman Vellani, that bested them all. Move over, Peacemaker, and The Boys need to stand aside, because this teen crime-fighter is riding a wave to the top of the genre."

Yep. I think it is true that I am a bigger fan of Ms. Marvel than the average viewer. However, I would not slot it above The Boys in no way shape or form.
I think the list just shows what a weak year it was for superhero television compared to years before.

None of 2022’s offerings compare to WandaVision, Loki, or what came before.

I think quality has been negatively affected by quantity.

Teen viewership is probably what is driving this. In addition, no one promotes as much as Disney. If The Boys were on Disney+ it would have much more promotion and viewers. Although if it were on Disney+ it would be neutered into a fraction of the show it has become.

The first footage emerges and release date confirmed for Zack Snyder’s ‘Rebel Moon’

By David James | We Got This Covered
January 18, 2023

Zack Snyder fans have had a rough few months. For a brief shining moment, it seemed that there was a chance that DC’s Snyderverse could be back on track: Henry Cavill was returning as Superman, Ben Affleck is making two appearances at Batman, and new DCU boss James Gunn and Snyder are old friends.

But, sadly, Warner Bros look to be abandoning the past and striking out for a new Snyderless future. But all hope isn’t lost, as the man himself has been beavering away on his Netflix passion project Rebel Moon. This is a space opera about a peaceful colony threatened by invasion from a galactic tyrant and a young woman must assemble a team of powerful off-world warriors to defend her planet.

Now we have our first brief footage from the movie, via Netflix’s 2023 ‘Save the Date’ movie preview video. There’s only a second or so of Rebel Moon footage, but here’s our first look at it in motion:
