The Lure - about as good as a Naked Polish Mermaid Stripper Musical can get. I'd recommend it if you feel like watching something... different.

I'm in!

I need to water this tree before it dies.

Well there is the Fox X-men reboot strategy.

Fox released First Class, which rebooted X-men. They were able to keep some stuff, and move on.

And Marvel has has some soft reboots in the past. We don't see Terrance Howard or Edward Norton running around as super heroes. Edgar Wrights Ant-man never happened.

To make a super hero universe work, everyone's ego but the producers has to be hung up on the coat rack. Why was Batman Forever better than Batman and Robin? probably a lot of egos working against the movie by that time.

Actually the Burton Schumacher anthology is actually something to look at for reboots. They kept on Alfred and Commisioner Gordon, and Robin for the second set, but the villains changed, even batman changed, and it really didn't matter. Not great movies, but the general public were a lot more capable of moving on with new casting at the time.

I think they'll build the new universe with the Aquaman and Peacemaker crew staying and everyone who can't hang or has too much of an ego or wants too much money is going to get recast. I'm not even sure Gal Gadot is gone, but Patty Jenkins may not be meshing.

I think the best thing they can do is Cast Khary Payton as the live action Cyborg and play his theme song.

I wouldn't be surprised if a number of people have been banned for no reason and that is why it is just the most dead it has ever been. I can't have this place be dead, my 20th year since registration anniversary is coming up!

The biggest two reasons why there isn't a new console yet is because Switch is doing well, and there are supply chain issues right now. And maybe the pattern got lost in the executive changeover.

NES(Famicom) and SNES -  7 years, 4 months, 6 days
SNES and N64 - 5 years, 7 months, 2 days
N64 and GCN -  5 years, 2 months, 22 days
GCN and Wii -  5 years, 2 months, 5 days
Wii and Wii U -  5 years, 11 months, 30 days
Wii U and Switch -  4 years, 3 months, 13 days

Switch to now -  5 years, 9 months, 16 days

This is the longest iteration of hardware ever. Nintendo could have had a successful pattern changeover and released it on March 17th of 2023 after announcing it in October like they did with the Switch.

I should look into how they do handhelds though.

I solved this problem by keeping my Wii U unplugged for the last 2 years

Now with Narcissism.

I think the biggest issue with the DC universe is the main characters will be public domain soonish

Superman 2034
Batman 2035
Green Lantern 2036
Shazam 2036
Aquaman 2037
Wonder Woman 2038

That may seem like a long time, but Man of Steel came out almost 10 years ago. Warner Bros. Has been slow with output.

I think Activision Blizzard is smaller in the grand scheme of things than people think. I'd be more concerned if they bought Valve, or Epic studios. The only thing that's going to happen from Microsoft buying Activision Blizzard is there will probably be a resurgence of 1990s PC franchises.  Which, won't happen otherwise.

I think Microsoft is going to move on from the X-box brand in the next generation. There is no need for PCs and consoles to be separate things.



I wonder how many of these actors are just going to fly over to DC when their characters die?

I did a set inspired by Gonzo, but I'd have to look for them.

This is really the painting that inspired the set
