I’ve been avoiding the clips of Age of Ultron over the past few weeks. I’m going to see that movie, so I’d rather experience as much as possible for the first time on the big screen. This shielding effort will likely become more and more difficult as Tumblr gets ahold of new assets to share.
But, let’s talk about some other movies – because yay!
If “we’re home” didn’t put a smile on your face, check your pulse.
I find myself slowly investing more time and thought into comics. Both the medium and the resulting cinematic universes. With that vague, and rushed introduction, I invite you to read this blog post from Justin Korthof about the DC Cinematic Universe. Of all the people I know who think about this stuff, Justin thinks about it most – and most intelligently. If you have any interest in what ‘Batman vs. Superman’ may be, or may become, you should read this post.
I don’t think that last summer’s “Man of Steel” is about Superman at all. – sixokay.com
Also, I saw a Macleren on my drive back from Stanford last night. The whip envy was quite strong.
This introduction is both a warning and an endorsement – the podcast you are about to listen to is really, really geeky. Josh Mayfield joins me in Epiode 103 to talk about the Final Fantasy series and its impact on the modern video game landscape, his website Epic Randomness and the joy of writing content for yourself first. But the bulk of this podcast is about comics. Comic book movies, the DC Comics New 52 initiative, the new Spider-Man, the numerous benefits (and bummers) of the digital comic industry and he even drops a few recommendations for quality reads if you’re interested. Enjoy.
