  1. The Sokovia Accords were a step toward the Mutant Registration Act. First the Avengers, then the general population. Civil War II coming to a theater near you... Or X-Men Vs Avengers.
  2. We already have two people from WWII still young and hale. No reason Magneto could've been frozen/put in cryo storage too. Assuming we're talking Spiderman level reboot, I do like the idea of the X-Men having been around for awhile in the background. If Cap Marvel has been around since the 90's and no one seems to know, X-Men, Moorlocks, and random mutants could be living in the shadows. Mags getting released/unfrozen, forms his little brotherhood, prep school students with a bald professor show up, and off we go. There's also a precedent of super powered people not in the limelight. Dr. Strange and his predecessors, and I guess Cap Marvel (since her first movie is set int he 90's).
  3. Magneto can be a survivor from Sokovia, He's been missing for a few years, looking for his kids... Joking aside, Scarlet Witch could be the key to bringing Magneto into the story.
  4. The wait brings out the best in us. (And the worst. )
  5. Winner. Make it so, Darth Richard
  6. Suggestion for new thread title: A Slow Regard for Things to Come (gonna miss fan angst live stream...)
  7. NotW was a true joy for me to read. The prose is so well done. WMF was a bit more of a slog, but still enjoyable. If you read for the enjoyment of reading and are not worried about having to wait for a third ("final") book to come out, go ahead and read them. If finding out the end of the story is more important (ala ASOIAF), I'd hold off.
  8. Agreed on the voice talent recommendation. It could be a nice side job for you. We hire voice talent at work for online training modules. They get paid $300 for walking into the studio (and for the first hour) and then $100 every hour after. If you build up a regular clientele it could build to more than just a side job. Or just fund your Bladerunner merchandise habit.
  9. My work here is done.
  10. Why am I not surprised he's a huge Rick and Morty fan? I bet he even believes the copypasta going around last fall is true. Because to be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also Rick’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick’s existential catchphrase “Wubba Lubba Dub Dub,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon’s genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 8)
  11. And sturdy braids.
  12. While WoT could certainly be made TV-M/R without veering too far from the source material, I hope they keep it closer to the PG-13 range of the spectrum (which is still pretty violent if you look at LotR/Hobbit). My reason is mainly selfish: I'd like my 12 and 10 year boys to be able to watch it.
  13. There's something to be said about the baggage of expectations.
  14. I figured Mckellen would be the one actor not keen on returning, given his experience on the Hobbit almost making him give up acting. (Isolated filming on a green screen set at Bag End) As much as I love the man in the role, I'd rather none of the original cast comes back, even Serkis. Let this new version be a new thing.
