but it's not as ethically dubious as it sounds...

In the MU, Riri Wiliams, aka Ironheart, is a student at MIT, and every year MIT releases a student-made trailer promoting “Pi Day” (The 14th of March, which in America's date shorthand is 3-14), when they announce which new students have been accepted for the following year.

Entertainment Weekly confirm that the director of the hugely enjoyable LEGO Batman movie Chris McKay is being tipped to produce a live action Nightwing movie!!

He's more of an animation director so far, his track record including Robot Chicken, Moral Orel and Titan Maximum but based on LEGO Batman you can't deny he's prepared to have some FUN with the concept of costumed superheroes (which the DCCU is so sadly lacking, thought their TV shows seem to have gotten the hint).

Bill Dubuque (The Accountant) is set to write the script.

And as a bit of a teaser... perhaps! ;) )

It has to be said that this is a golden time for comic book adaptations into other media. Aside from the long established trend of video games, we have more movies, live action and animated series than would have seemed even plausible a few years ago.

And the range is impressive; we have Justice League Action for the kids (and the young at heart), Riverdale for those wanting a darker teen soap/drama take on Archie, Legion for the arty crowd (jk), CW is seemingly fuelled by DC shows like Supergirl, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, and Agents of SHIELD is still powering on. In the cinema we have everything from Snowpiercer to The LEGO Batman Movie!

It will never be a primary focus on scans_daily (the clue being in the name of course), and we do have the NS: multimedia tag, but it's not used overly much, so we thought it might be interesting to create a weekly post where you can discuss or dissect any shows you have enjoyed, are anticipating or want to recommend.

And don't feel limited to English language materials; Asterix movies, manga adaption, all are fair game. The more variety the better!

This will be a test run for four Sundays, if it proved popular we'll keep it going, if not we'll let it fade away.

Your input would be appreciated so, if you're interested in this as an idea, go for it!

Marvel Entertainment is teaming up with Square Enix for a multi-year, multi-game partnership, starting with The Avengers project!

I'm cautiously optimistic. Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider was awesome, so they clearly know how to make good games.

The LEGO Batman Movie is only a couple of weeks away, and so a couple of the newer trailers seems apt

And since this is me, a couple of them focus on their take on the Boy Wonder.

Rrrriiiiiiip!! )

So I was going to do a Batgirl retrospective or something to as a framing device, but screw it, it's New Year's, I'm lazy, and espanolbot is probably going to get to that that sooner or later. Anyways, I made this about a month back, spent many precious hours I could've used studying for finals, and when all's said and done... I regret nothing.

As first posts of 2017 go, I could do worse.

So a few weeks ago I posted a trailer, and some other stuff, for the upcoming teen drama Riverdale, which is the CW's take on Archie and his pals. It did a good job of showing tone, but didn't really give any plot.

Well, now they've released a new trailer with about an atom-sized bit of plot, as well as a cameo from their version of Jughead.

So, uh, there's this Youtube guy called hbomberguy...

I don't know how to start threads.

Anyway, this guy did a video on the Killing Joke movie and why it's bad and how Alan Moore inadvertently helped kill comics. I thought it'd be interesting to post for obvious reasons.

Though what he does say that I haven't heard anyone say before is how the adaptation ignores a hell of a lot of the stuff that made the Killing Joke feel alive and interesting, and how Liefeldian sparse, nonexistent backgrounds are really fucking shitty for a comic and not just bad art. Background detail can really add a lot to a work.

He talks about this subject in other videos, and it's something I've been noticing in media in general. I recently replayed Chrono Trigger and noticed how the pixel thin strings in Marle's crossbow thwip when she fires it.Or watching a Jackie Chan movie and seeing how there's a clear rythym to the kicks and punches that don't exist in a lot of less awesome American action movies.

TL;DR details are hella important.

It's just been announced by Warner Brothers Animaton that fan favourite cartoon series "Young Justice" WILL get a long delayed Season 3!!

“The affection that fans have had for Young Justice, and their rallying cry for more episodes, has always resonated with us,” said Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series, in a statement. "We are excited to bring the show back for this loyal fanbase and to provide an opportunity for new viewers to discover this excellent series.”

Original Young Justice producers Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman: Doomsday) and Greg Weisman (Star Wars Rebels, Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man) have both returned to the series for the new episodes.

No word as to where it will be available, or exactly when, but it WILL happen!

Well, it's nice to get some pleasant news after this past couple of days!

Batman Vs Superman left you cold? JLA vs Teen Titans not to your taste? The Killing Jo... well, let's not think about that one.

Fear not citizens, until LEGO Batman comes along next year to restore your faith in superheroes, the Batrope swinginest Dynamic Duo are back!

Even the trailer is a deathtrap scene! )
