I'm also glad people came around to Robinson's FF. I've always been a fan of his writing so I had a hunch of what he was doing early on and had faith in it. I'm glad I did because it's been my favorite book each month. I'm sad that I won't be able to pick up a new fantastic four book for the foreseeable future.

Wow. I don't think this show has ever been so delicate in the way touchy subjects are handled. You guys talking about 2 movies that have copped so much since their announcement and trailers and still managed to keep to positive. I especially enjoyed the differing in opinions. Its gone from "everybody hates Man of Steel and the new FF" to something a lot more hopeful and understanding.
I totally agree with Steve on the FF trailer. But also more specifically on the fact that these movies should be handled like Elseworlds/Alternate universes. Glad that was brought up. The reason every comic book movie gets arguments from all angles is because everyone has their own reasons for like certain comics and characters. So getting 1 person to write and movie and 1 to direct it, its going to be their vision and their version. Just like creative teams on a comic. There's always the one you don't like. But there's always others. The problem with movies is their put on a higher pedestal than comics, and take longer to make.

I don't read Fantastic Four and never have, it just doesn't interest me. With that said, the new trailer looks OK but not great to me. I'm glad they are doing an alternate universe instead of burying it in continuity that they would get called out for getting wrong or changing. And someone like me can walk into the movie and not feel lost.
Impressed with Steve this week putting a positive spin on things, it's refreshing to hear. Heck, we even got a little bit of positive about the second viewing of Man of Steel.
The Batman v. Superman trailer is awesome, it gave me the chills. I think Steve is right in his speculation of the plot and why Batman may view Superman as a menace.
I picked up Bloodshot #1 and thought it was solid. I wasn't lost not having read anything before about the character so it seems like a good jumping on point.
