So apparently (cos The Avengers got all the money), a Justice League movie is in the works.

I feel very eh about it to be honest. It feels very rushed to me. Marvel took their time developing the characters and a new universe for them, so that comic book fans and non-comic book fans could enjoy them. Plus The Avengers roster was a lot more grounded that the JL would be. Thor was the most "out there" of the characters.

It'll have the new Superman (his film is out next year I think?), a rebooted Batman and then whoever's left over. Probably the current Green Lantern (which is a shame cos I love me some John Stewart) and Wonder Woman. The Flash will probably feature as well, and be Barry Allen instead of Wally West. I don't have much faith in them doing justice (no pun intended) to Wonder Woman though. She has all the potential to be so amazing! It's kind of a shame, DC actually has some amazing female characters!

I'm probably being too pessimistic, but I think the old Justice League cartoon, and to be honest the new Young Justice cartoon, has set the bar so high for how DC teams should work in non-print media that the film's going to fall short. I really hope they get some of the people who have worked on the cartoons and comics to help with the film. Cos that Gail Simone Wonder Woman animated movie that came out a while back? Amaaaaazing!

Seriously, how did they sneak this stuff in?! XD

But....they found him! What are they gonna do now?!

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. )


This post has made me realise I really need a gif of Arnav going "What the f-" XD It's always so hilarious.

The animation equivalent of the Emmy's just announced their nominations...and Young Justice didn't get nominated for anything?!

This is Community all over again! And not to knock Green Lantern, but it's only been on the equivalent of two minutes! How can you tell how good it is yet? XD I'm actually surprised that Adventure Time didn't get more, considering how popular it is.

On a lighter note, new J-Drama with Yoko and Mabo! :D Yaaay!

Well, now I know that if comics ever piss me off again, then the Internet is better at expressing my rage disappointment than I am! XD

Spoilers if you haven't read that new comic with Arsenal, Starfire and Jason Todd but given DC's recent history of fail, I'm pretty sure you can guess which of those three they messed up. ¬_¬

My reaction to that Shortpacked comic was pretty much...

And this awesome article which explains what's happened, the problems I have with female characters in comics recently, and also kinda the problem I have with how females are portrayed in films. (It's less of a problem on TV, but still a problem!)

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. )

See icon.

The internet is playing havoc with my childhood. XD

When did all this happen?! It seems this whole turn all our childhood cartoons, no matter how implausible, into live action movies trend is still going!

Cut for emotigifs. :P )

You's so hot...and the aircon at work is not working! T_T

And I finally watched the last two season finales of American shows I keep up with, 24 and Prison Break. (I'm so behind with ER it's not even funny, I hope to finish that by the end of Summer at least)

24 was okay, standard 24 ending, we won't know the outcome til about halfway through the next season premiere, lol. It felt really quick this year, I dunno why! I don't think I had a favourite character this year (I did like Renee a lot though!) but I hated Janis!

Prison Break: Why did the ending feel like I just got bitch-slapped by Marshall from HIMYM? >:(
gb23: (KCE: MAJI DE?!)

Linkage to

Content: Dora the Explorer is being "updated" and is now a teen. She will attend middle school, live in the big city and be mostly concerned with wardrobe and accessories. I sh*t you not.

Reaction: WHAT IS THIS?! They just made a new tween cartoon and stuck Dora on it. She's not even an explorer anymore. You'd think, logically, she'd grow up and still be interested in explorer type activities. You know, something less superficial. Nope. Hair, clothes and shiny things.

Sigh. There aren't as many "both boys and girls can enjoy this" cartoons as there were when I was a kid, but there are still some good ones that don't pull stuff like this. It's just quite sad that in order to be a cartoon that appeals to girls, the girl has to be interested in fashion and the like. Don't we already have that stupid Bratz show to cover that?

On a slightly related note, just started Spectacular Spider-Man season 2 and I really wish the movies were more like this! Also, Phineas and Ferb is awesomesauce.
