Oh Hollywood. Why do you do this to me? Yes, I am starting to feel like it's personal now.
A few days ago, a 15-second video emerged online. It shows producer Michael Bay standing before an audience in a suit, discussing his plans for a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, to be directed by Jonathan Liebesman of Wrath of the Titans fame, with such a dearth of enthusiasm that you could quite easily mistake him for a printer toner spokesman at a regional office supplies conference.
In the video, Bay says: "Kids are going to believe one day that these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie. These turtles are from an alien race and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely lovable." Rest of the article here
My initial reaction...
The Internet's reaction...
( The rest of my emotions, as ever, in GIF form. )
Stop ruining all my childhood stuff! IT'S NOT LIKE THE ORIGINAL STORY WAS CONFUSING IN THE FIRST PLACE!
This post has made me realise I really need a gif of Arnav going "What the f-" XD It's always so hilarious.
Just when I thought comics couldn't piss me off anymore! Just when I thought I could just ignore all this stuff and walk away. And then...
( Angry gifs and stuff! Oh, and spoilers I guess. )
I really didn't put my point across as well as I would have liked, but I seriously can't with this right now. It's pretty safe to say that if I ever get back into comics again, it definitely won't be with DC. You'd think I would have learned not to be surprised by now.
NBC's Wonder Woman pilot didn't get picked up. It sucks for everyone involved on the show, but to be honest, I'm kinda glad. With the direction they were going in, it probably would've been cancelled and then everyone would be all "See, girl superheroes aren't popular!" bla bla bla. Doesn't matter if the main character is a woman or a man, the thing has to be interesting and well written. The new My Little Pony cartoon has tons of adult male fans! XD
And now, for the WTF of the week...
( Japan is apparently remaking Hana Kimi. Gifs are a given. )
They're making a Babar movie! XD http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/
Yes, that's right, this Babar!
I'm guessing they're gonna go with the earlier stories of when he went from the jungle to the city. Yeah, I really don't know what to say about this one. I dunno how they'll explain why there's a jungle in America, so maybe he'll escape from the local zoo? XD
