ISNT GREEN LANTERN SUPPOSED TO BE BLACK??
Doomsday kinda looks like a Ninja Turtle, too.
Maybe we're now to the point where CGI artists have stopped giving a shit.
Yeah, he fucking refutes himself in his own statement.
This guy is literally the antithesis of logic. And he posts like he's making some definitive point or some kind of reasonable statement. Anyone with half a fucking brain should be able to look at his post and see that it's entirely bullshit.
>casuals knowing doomsday
>casuals knowing abomination by name
Facebook posts like that are the definition of no logic.
That guy didn't even take two seconds to actually think about what he wanted to say before he posted that. He just let shit trail out of his fingers and hit post. Satisfied with his vomit, he left thinking he made some kind of interesting remark or clever post.
>Batman never used guns
>Superman never killed
>Harley Quinn earned her degree, and is a positive role model for women
>The Joker killed Batmans parents
>Webshooters? That's reatded they've always been organic
>Captain America is a jingoistic asshole
>Hank Pym is a wife beater
>Spider-Mans never killed
>Gwen Stacy was pure
>Why do people like Superman, he can't have a good fight with anyone
Kind of? Power armor was supposed conceived by Boeing after ww2 but nothing came of it. Power armor was used in fiction in the book Starship Troopers in '59 and then in Tales comic book with Iron Man in '64.
>Mysterio? Sounds lame
>Doc Ock? JUST a fat guy with metal arms
>Mary Jane above all others
Then their children would become vigilantes and push you into a vat of chemicals.
He's just setting out his feelings on viewing a trailer. What's wrong with that? Do you feel he has a point? Do you think that regardless of whether he has a point, the movie is in trouble?
Why does it matter to you?
Also I assume by "refutes" you mean he starts out by saying there are visual and thematic similarities between Abomination from the 2008 Hulk and Doomsday, which is fair comment, but then complains of it being a retelling of 2008's The Dark Knight.
The problem with that is that he's not refuting anything; he's making complementary statements to build a picture for you, the reader, of his thoughts. Sure, he probably didn't expect them to be subjected to a great deal of scrutiny, and maybe they won't hold up when the movie - which none of the people currently arguing about it have seen - is released. But he's entitled to his opinions just as you are to yours, and his are based on what the press have been told so far and what we've seen in the trailers - older Batman, questioning his own effectiveness, using increasingly extreme methods and putting himself unnecessarily at risk.
There's no reason Doomsday can't be the McGuffin in that story, the thing around which Batman's personal journey is based just as the Joker/the League were the McGuffins in the Dark Knight and the Dark Knight Rises. The bad guy exists to give the good guy a backdrop to tell his story in front of, that's all.
It's true that the statements are superficially contradictory, if you're incapable of grasping abstract meaning from words.
>I don't have the need to prove my nerd cred to anyone
>that's why I make pictures telling everyone how much of a nerd I am
The /v/ thread where someone dumped pages from this was pretty funny.
>"there are no fake geeks, only real jerks"
>Here's a question, why the fuck does she hang around so many people who question if she's a fucking geek or not? If people are being annoying just walk the fuck away.
because there aren't actually very many girls who enjoy "nerdy things" and the ones that do/the things that are enjoyed by "nerdy girls" have almost entirely female fans
But this book is about schooling dude bros how to treat ladies
>Talks all that shit about booth babes
Fucking why?! Because they take attention off your annoying ass? God forbid someone not be looking at you for five seconds.
Also my goodness, all those fucking memes.
>all those fucking memes.
That's how people who aren't on 4chan communicate with each other
I'm surprised there isn't something ripped straight from memebase's meme creator in there
why is he bald, and why is he missing all his facial bones especially on his chin?
he looks so smooth and ordinary
Hey, does any have that screencap from Tumblr going on about "Dr. Harleen Quinzel' is a complex individual, citing stuff from Injustice as well as her being allegedly the only supervillian to be able to break into Arkham? I was talking about it with a friend and he was curious but I couldn't find it anywhere.
>>Harley Quinn earned her degree, and is a positive role model for women
>>Gwen Stacy was pure
One of those is only false because of a shitty addition/retcon.
The other can be willfully (and forcefully) erased from my mind. Unless you meant "pure" as "not a bit of a bitch". Those kids should have been Pete's though.
>Batman being realistic
I get it because he's the product of maximum human determination and willpower. Like an actual human could possibly do what he does.
>Batman being relatable
Fucking no. I would be hard pressed to find someone who can relate to Batman enough for it to be the reason to read his comics.
It's the age of geeks and internet whores so the casual wants nerd points so they point out things that are clever to them when in fact it makes them look like tryhard idiots to those who know the idea behind thise things.
Then there's people's obsession with hidden easter eggs and references that they even see them in places that they aren't (like people seeing Eternity in GotG or confusing Wasp with Eternity) especially with James Gunn's super secret hidden GotG reference that no one has gotten.
Fuck this why can't one just enjoy comics, video games and not resort to dumb shit, faker fans who want to ride the popularity are fucking everywhere especially those kids wearing band shirts from bands whose music they never heard of, who gives a fuck.
Also having a vagina doesn’t make you special if someone with a penis tells you you can't be a fan of something just tell them to fuck off, get over it, and keep liking what you like and find others who aren't jerks and like what you like with them.
>Buffy not Bella
As much as I hate Twilight and think it's dumb this is shaming fans who like Twilight whose majority of fanbase consists of women so whatever doesn’t fit in this person's idea of what is appropriate for a female fan is not welcomed I guess.
The one movie that came out didn't tone and essence of the comics they're based on
"they're so awful"
They best capture the tone of the comics they're based on
not counting F4
"They're shit, I wish MCU would get the rights back"
Probably Takes the most liberties when it comes to adapting the comics
"The best comic movies hands down, they're the best, iron man is so funny"
this is the most ridicoulus thing I've seen in a while, fucking /co/mblr I swear.
They fucking did.
He looks more like fucking movie Abomination than Doomsday.
This is par for the course for Hollywood. They'd rather rip off / recycle some other movie, even a cape comic movie, than actually base something on the books and put new ideas into cinemas.
The success of Spider-Man and X-Men movies made the rise of geek culture possible.
But good things can come out of it too, I remember when the prequels were still happening and I would hear comments from people in my school wondering what Star Wars was about, not being aware of the OT, making fun of people who liked it etc... but now with geek culture and TFA being released, from what I've seen in the school that I work at, all the kids are excited for Star Wars and some of them are just discovering the OT too which I find kind of cool especially since they are really passionate about it (moreso than TFA)
I cant even talk about comics with people anymore. I stopped after a guy I knew told me that Deathstroke was a knockoff of Deadpool and that Sabertooth was Wolverines brother.
>literal NORMIES GET OUT REEEEE and GO HOME GAMER GIRL posts
Just another DC fan thread. I remember when /co/ would make fun of other boards for this behavior.
Ill be honest. Any time DC is brought up people just lose their shit. I dont know if I have ever seen an actual discussion about the comics with examples instead of loud opinions with broad generalization.
>tfw literally no one knows who Brainiac is
>Red Hood is such a Winter Soldier ripoff!
>Winter Soldier is such a Red Hood ripoff!
Well Harley being in New 52 Suicide Squad,her solo and Injustice makes it look like she isn't a sidekick at first glance despite her major character trait is Stockholm Syndrome with the Joker.
>Doomsday looks nothing like the comics??
He kind of does. Except for the lack of hair, but Doomsday's spikes started out fairly short. And they might (will) grow longer during the battle, of course.
God, I am already tired of this movie.
>Superman and Batman fight
>They discover together that Lex has fabricated the whole situation
>They go to bust Lex
>But Lex has created Doomsday
>Fortunately, Wonder Woman appears to help them out
Is there anyone who thinks it will be more complicated than that?
>can break into Arkham with only a handful of objects, something no other batman villain can do
You... that's... What!? First of all that's wrong, other villains have done it. Hell, MOST of his villains have broken OUT of Arkham with LESS than that.
Someone made this.
A real person, without a trace of irony or self-awareness, typed all this out and then transcribed it to this image.
Kids younger than 12 with non Star Wars fan parents that I've talked to mostly know Star Wars through Clone Wars or Rebels or were vaguely aware of the OT but they never saw saw it.
Some of the older kids knew about the OT but they never had an interest to watch it until TFA.
>these guys never read All Star Batman & Robin
This comic is stupid, but I'm not sure people who have only ever read Dark Knight Returns should be posting in a thread about casuals.
The fourth panel is 100% accurate to ASB&R.
The rest is fucking stupid.
>posting for clarity
I saw it in a book shop. This book is basically the result of someone taking tumblr-fan-culture and asserting that that is what being a "geek" is. I don't think people outside of tumblr even know what the fuck Superwholock is supposed to be. It disturbs me that I know of it.
But isn't the point of Ramona Flowers that she ISN'T a bad ass and that she has a lot of baggage she unsuccesfully tries to lose? I mean it's implied that she will lose it someday, but not at the end of Scott Pilgrim.
Because Man of Steel was pretty split down the middle as far as people liking it and disliking it.
I liked it when I first saw it, now I think it's shit.
People don't have high hopes for this movie.
Eh I'm in my late 20s and never seen the original star wars all the way through ( they bored me )but growing up with comics and just watching TV I know enough about star wars to know the story
From my experience I would say its actually pretty common to have not seen the OT for non "nerdy" Millennials, especially girls. The saddest part is that many of them have seen at least one of the prequels, and that's all they know about Star Wars.
>She's a woman who called Dr Fate on his shit because "some of us went to school and earned that title"
But Fate did earn his doctorate degree at school, what kind of bullshit is this?
The thing about casuals is they all see themselves as super-knowledgeable hipsters, so they think they can impress people by name-dropping Abomination, when they only know that character from the movies.
I mean, you can debate a lot of the points in there, and I don't want to get into that, but you atleast have to admit that not only does this barely look like a retelling of DKR, there haven't been any other of those anyway.
>what should I have done? let them die?
>yeah probably, my character is bastardized beyond redemption anyways so why should I care? brb tornado. don't save me or the dog even though you easily could.
Why did people like this movie? I can even look past the Metropolis crater and Man of Murder but every character was written so poorly.
Eh, I don't consider the writing worse than most other superhero movies.
It's not even close to being a masterpiece, but it has (imo) great fight scenes, god tier design, and I just find it entertaining, apart from the two flashbacks we've all shitposted about a million times.
>Shit casuals say
>"This is the best costume she ever had"
>Only good Superman villain.
I know you're baiting, but I'll bite.
>Who is Lex Luthor
>Who is fucking Braniac
>Who is General Zod
>Who is Darksield
>Who is Mongul
>Who is Manchester Black
>Who is Metallo
Hell even *sometimes*
>Who is Mister Mxyzptlk
Fuck you anon.
I prefer my Wonder Woman with a skirt
>Who is Mister Mxyzptlk
How do you pronounce that in your head when you read it? I started with Morrison's Action Comics and got confused by some of the names from beings from his dimension.
Jesus Christ. First of all, he was giving an example of shit casuals say, not actually claiming that. Second of all, Darkseid is not a Superman villain, no matter what the DCAU might try to claim. Thirdly, you forgot Parasite, goddamnit.
>not preferring trunks
Pleb level, anon.
Though I always thought the point is you're not supposed to be able to say it. You as the reader I mean
To be fair, this is the same company that doesn't know if its "Raaas Al Ghul" or "Raysh Al Ghul" that is the correct pronunciation, to the point that in Arrow both were used depending on if the person saying it was in team Arrow or in the League
I read somewhere that the actual pronunciation is Raz, but the creators said Raysh so technically both are acceptable.
Though that could very well be utter bullshit, as I said, I read it somewhere
I used to listen to Fatman on Batman at work every morning, and in an interview with Denny O'Neil he actually says how it's supposed to be pronounced. I'd go find it but there are a few episodes with him split up into multiple parts about an hour and a half each, and I'm not sure which episode it is in or at what time.
I don't even remember how he pronounced it, actually.
Unrelated to the thread, but if you can tolerate Kevin Smith, the interview episodes of that podcast are really interesting and definitely worth listening to IMO
Smith is a faggot, but the FoB stuff is pretty good.
>Mark Hamill spoke with little to no interruption for 3 hours without running out of stuff to say.
That dude should get his own podcast.
>Superman is unbeatable! He lifted Infinity and Eternity!!!
The big thing that bothers me is that they're talking about two entirely different Harleys.
There's Injustice Harley (Injustice is the best DC book being published) who did everything they said except the Arkham break in, which was Pre-New 52 comic Harley.
>Injustice is the best DC book being published
This reminds me of a story I heard about Death in the Family. After Jason Todd's death, there was big media attention, and while most fans were happy to see the hated character gone, older fans who had stopped reading, or fans of the Adam West series were pissed off because they didn't realise the Robin who died wasn't the same Robin they knew.
Because of this, Jim Starlin found himself being harassed on the street by angry fans for being the "Guy who killed Robin" without realising they character they knew was alive and well.
Idk, seems like a lot of people were happy about Panther being brought up in the movie talks. I'm not exactly a fan of the dude but if it seems popular enough to sell tickets I'm of the opinion it should be made.
Studios want large audiences. I can't blame them for trying to cash in on the big diversity train. Sadly, these characters aren't just comic books characters, we have to accept that studio heads are going to decide who "looks marketable".
No doubt the Black Panther deserves a movie. He just doesn't deserve one as much as Superman. Same reason Booster Gold doesn't deserve a movie as much as WW. The most popular, recognisable and marketable characters are the most deserving of movie adaptations.
You can already see them sprouting all over.
Doomsday didn't start out with a bunch of bony shit sticking out of him. He grew it to repair and reinforce areas of his body that had been damaged in battle.
His whole schtick is evolution, remember? Why should this version be any different? And of course they aren't going to show his final appearance in a trailer. Then the people bitching about "spoilers" would actually have something to complain about.
Are you autistic? When people say he's relatable, they're refering to his mortality, and the fact that he can't just use superpowers to solve problems. He only has what any of us would have. Brains, a body, and tools.
People saying he's relatable don't mean it literally. They don't mean that everybody knows what it's like to be a billionaire, or an Olympic athlete, or a polymath, or whatever. They know what it's like to be able to die, and what it's like to solve problems with human abilities, even if those human abilities being presented are exaggerated.
What kind of retard doesn't understand that?
>Black Bolt is overpowered
>Unlikable = bad character
>if a characters doesn't make jokes then they don't have a personality
>superman is boring because he can do everything
I have a friend like this.
