I didn't mind the choreography in Cage
, mainly because I never really had high expectations for it. Cage isn't exactly a martial artists, and it isn't Danny's show. If anything, I think they did make Danny more likeable than he was in his own series, so that's a bonus.
Jared Leto just confirmed he'll be playing Morbius in Sony's weird Spider-Man's Supporting Cast slash Rogue's Gallery Universe. Maybe he'll actually appear in the movie this time.
Netflix (I think it was Netflix
) has saved Lucifer
for at least a season, so I'm hoping those final episodes that were like lost episodes or whatever get put into context with the rest of the show.
As an aside, Disney has the green light to purchase the various Fox studios on sale, and they've upped their bid over Comcast so all that's really left now is for the t's to be dotted and the i's to be crossed and we should be hearing about a Fantastic Four project to actually look forward to. My wish list for that is to get the people that did The Incredibles. That was basically Fantastic Four anyway so it isn't a huge leap.
DC has confirmed some details about their streaming service. First, the live action Titans
will be one of the service's premiere shows ... you know, the one where Star Fire looks like a transse
xual prostitute. There's an animated Harley Quinn
as well, which I imagine what an animated Deadpool would be like if the creators only ever read Daniel Way's book. There's also a Doom Patrol
and a Swamp Thing
as well, all in the near future. The really exciting news from that is the next season of Young Justice: Outsiders
, though. That was a quality 'toon when it was still on air, so another season is always a plus. They'll also offer books to read, similar to the Marvel Unlimited app. Which, you know, is about time for people that don't know how the internet works. No word on price yet, but I don't think I'll personally subscribe, seeing as how I already have Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon.
I had heard they wouldn't, but I guess Marvel had some announcements of their own at SDCC. First off, what appears to be a kids cartoon (which you would think would be obvious, since cartoon, but nope ...
) featuring some of the "newer" characters like Kamala Khan version of Ms Marvel, Quake, and Squirrel Girl. Notable that Chloe Bennett will voice Quake, so that's something. Marvel also announced that there will be an announcement and "exclusive inside scoop on what’s in-store for season two as Danny Rand and Colleen Wing set off on a new adventure as the protectors of lower NYC." Hopefully the inside scoop is a new fight choreographer.
Saturday there'll be a panel about the next season of The Gifted
, so that should be good. Sunday will be an announcement for the Black Panther's Quest
cartoon, and an announcement for the next season of Legion
(Legends at least sounds interesting to me).
Season 1 is a little slow, but it's introductory so that's to be expected. The CGI overall is also iffy. Somewhere between season 2 and 3 the writers decided to lean heavy into camp, and honestly it helps distinguish from the other CW shows and some of the places they go is absolutely worthwhile
