hey pan, why don't you review "who wants to be a superhero"? It was a reality tv show WAIT, let me continue, reality tv show about people dressing up as their OC superheros and battling in challenges. Its hosted by Stan Lee and the winner for each of the two seasons gets their own tv movie, comic book, and action figure. Erin Esurance was actually featured in one of the challenges (season 2, episode 4). Also, there's a hot artsy girl who's superhero name is Basura. Skimpy leather costume 0u0

I freaking loved that show

But I remember the prize was getting a comic and to be featured in a movie!…. A Sci Fi Channel original movie for like a 30 second cameo in a Giant Snake movie. FeedBacak won season 1

Sneak peek: Michael Keaton a flying fiend as everyman ‘Spider-Man’ villain

He might have a cool name but Michael Keaton’s bad guy in Spider-Man: Homecoming (in theaters July 7) differs from the likes of Avengers villains Loki and Thanos in one important sense: He’s an everyman.

“My whole approach for this movie is that we’ve seen the penthouse level of the (Marvel) universe,” says director Jon Watts (Cop Car). “We’ve seen what it’s like to be a billionaire inventor and to be a Norse god. We’ve seen the very top of this world. But we’ve never seen what it’s like to be just a regular joe.”

Fourteen previous Marvel films have seen a number of huge superhero battles leave a ton of destruction in their wake, and Adrian Toomes (Keaton) is a blue-collar sort who runs a New York salvaging company that cleans up after these messes. However, he becomes irked when after one altercation, a new government organization, founded by A-list businessman Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), steps in to take over.

Toomes “has a bone to pick” with Iron Man’s high-profile alter ego, says co-producer Eric Hauserman Carroll, and “sort of becomes the dark Tony Stark”: He and his crew — including the Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine) and the Tinkerer (Michael Chernus) — use scavenged alien artifacts and stolen advanced tech to put together amazing weaponry to sell to other criminals. “He thinks once he has this money and power, he’ll have more control of his life,” Carroll adds. However, it doesn’t take too long before they get on the radar of their friendly neighborhood Spider-Man (Tom Holland).

“Some people see themselves as victims — he sees himself a little bit like that,” Keaton says of Toomes. “He probably would have a strong argument that he never got a fair shot — a lot of ‘Why not me? Where’s mine?’ ”

“I like the idea that in these huge movies, you pick out one extra and you’re like, ‘What does he think of all this?’ ” Watts says. “Sometimes these movies are so casual about just destroying whole cities and incredible things happen and everyone’s like, ‘Eh, whatever.’ If that really happened, it would be amazing and change everything.”Plus, with his new baddie Watts gets to use “this neat junk from all the other movies,” he says. “It’s a really great starting point for the villains to have the Vulture picking over the stuff and finding the valuable exotic elements and having the Tinkerer assemble into something that could be used.”The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a place “where you can be a villain and a real person, too,” Watts says. “Being a supervillain isn’t necessarily your full-time job.”

Powerless

If you’ve ever wondered about the innocent civilians that get caught in the middle of a superhero battle, this show is for you!

Powerless is set in Charm City, where minor super villain attacks are a daily occurrence. The show is focused on the Research and Development team of Wayne Security, a division of Wayne Enterprises run by Bruce Wayne…’s cousin. 

They make products to keep civilians safer during super-fights. Their signature product is a Joker Gas Anti-Venom but they’ve pretty much been stuck without ideas since. 

Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens) is the new R&D boss and she desperately tries to motivate the apathetic team of researchers (Danny Pudi, Christina Kirk, & Ron Funches) into developing a new and innovative product to impress their boss (Alan Tudyk). 

The pilot picks up on her first day, when she is super optimistic and full of ideas but she quickly learns that her expectations far exceed those of her new boss and officemates. It is up to her to llead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero.

#Powerless premieres Thursday, Feb. 2 at 8:30 p.m. on NBC.

I do not understand why some critics have a hang up about CGI battles in superhero movies. Have you EVER picked up a comic book? Do you genuinely think any of that shit could practical? Like sure the warehouse fight in BVS could be but Batman is just a normal human beating the shit out of other normal humans. What the hell do you think it’s gonna look like when a super powered alien and a magical demigoddess have to fight a 20 ft tall monster that can shoot laser beams from their damn eyes? You can tell it’s CGI and that takes you out of it? Well no shit Harold, did you think that Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot could actually fly or something?

Hi I need to do some research about classic toku do you have some series that you would recommend

Sure and thanks for the second part as well, that narrows things down just a little bit.

If you are going to look to classic tokusatsu, you need to start at the roots and that’s the work of Eiji Tsuburaya.  Tsuburaya pretty much pioneered what we think of as tokusatsu today through his work at Toho Studios in the 1950s and 1960s.  Everyone known his work (if not his name) because he was the director of special effects for Toho classic kaiju films including 8 of their Godzilla films (though he was only supervising on 3 of the later ones). He also worked on tons of other movies and I highly recommend some of them such as Frankenstein Conquers the World (Frankenstein vs. Baragon), The Mysterians and Matango.

However, it is his TV work that I absolutely love.  In the mid 1960s Tsuburaya decided to form his own production company and start producing high quality science fiction and fantasy programming for television.  His first series was Ultra Q, a weekly show about mysterious happenings and monsters that brought the thrill of kaiju home to the masses that they usually had to go to the theater to see. 

However, it was the follow up series, his first in full color, that really proved to be the huge hit he was seeking.  That show started the Kyodai Hero (Giant Hero) genre of tokusatsu TV shows by introducing a gigantic superhero to battle the monsters and aliens that would appear each week.  That show (and hero) was Ultraman.

I cannot stress how absolutely crucial Ultraman was to the history of TV tokusatsu.  There had been heroes on TV before (such as 1958′s Moonlight Mask and 1960s National Kid) but nothing like Ultraman. It is the series responsible for kicking off the second kaiju boom and taking tokusatsu out of the movie theater and into homes on a weekly basis.  

Though the first series is massively groundbreaking, I would actually venture that the second Ultra Hero show, Ultraseven, is the better series. It has a refined sense of storytelling, improved effects and better set designs than its predecessor.  It also has my favorite hero of the franchise in the title character.

Fortunately, all three of these series are available on DVD in the US at reasonable prices (seriously, if you shop around the Ultraman DVD set can be bought for like $10).

With any success comes imitators and those came fast on the heels of Ultraman. Shows like Ambassador Magma*, Iron King and Spectreman flooded the airwaves until by the early 1970s there was a glut of giants rampaging Japanese airwaves.

Heck, Toho even threw their hat into the ring with shows like Ike! Godman, Ike! Greenman and Ryuusei Ningen Zone (Zone Fighter) the last of which tried to up the star power by bring in Godzilla as recurring guest star.

By this point though, there were just too many giant heroes and the formula was growing a bit stale.  Tsuburaya could still get big ratings with Ultraman sequels but the derivatives were proving less and less popular with audiences.

That’s when the human-sized Henshin Heroes brought new life to the genre, starting with Kamen Rider. I won’t get into him too much as you already know his story and success but along with the Rider franchise came others, some from the same genius creator, Shotaro Ishinomori.  These shows included the amazing Jinzo Ningen Kikaida (Android Kikaider) about a robot hero battling the evil organization DARK while protecting the children of his creator and searching for their Father who is wandering Japan suffering from amnesia after escaping the forces of darkness. It spawned a sequel, Kikaider 01 that told the tale of the main hero’s android brother, an earlier prototype.

There was also Akumaizer 3, the story of three demons who have escaped their service to evil to defend humanity from their former allies.

It also had a sequel called Choujin Bibyun, which featured heroes based off of rejected Kamen Rider designs! The three heroes here were the reincarnations of the heroes from the previous series.

Oh and for recommendations, I would be remiss without mentioning Kaiketsu Zubat, a very unique show about a man travelling Japan and battling evil to find the man responsible for the death of his best friend. It has a very interesting hero named Ken Hayakawa who may actually be more interesting out of costume than in!

There are so many more I could talk about here like the Go Nagai created series Star of Pro-Wrestling Azteckaiser and Battle Hawk.

However, I would be utterly remiss if I didn’t mention the series that lead to me creating this blog, the first of a franchise that’s lasted to this very day, Himitsu Sentai Goranger.

This was the very first of the the Super Sentai series (though it wasn’t called that at the time), the series that would come to rule the airwaves in the next decade (the 1980s).

This is really only scratching the surface.  There are so many more shows I could go into but these really are the most important to the development of the art of tokusatsu on television.  I hope this helps with your research and thank you for the question!

Season 3 of Flash has been such a disappointment even that finale was underwhelming and everything they do is so predictable I hope next season is better

Agreed. I hear they’re getting some new writers, which can either be good or bad lol but hopefully it’s good. I just want the Season 1 vibe to be back. I miss the happier and lighter show. The show that focused on superhero stuff and fighting instead of soap opera relationship nonsense. 

There’s been a lot of problems with the flash this season but that’s been the biggest problem. Too much focus on relationships, all of them being written horribly, not getting much of the friendships at all and not seeing the team getting to spend time together and hang out like they used to.

Unfortunately the worst part of the season has been Barry. And I love Barry with all of my heart, he’s been my favorite character for a long long time. But Flashpoint happened and then it was like Barry completely changed. (I like to pretend it’s Barry’s evil twin Larry because I really don’t recognize him at all) He was completely selfish, he didn’t care about anyone but Iris. We didn’t even get to see him interact with many characters alone besides Iris. He has such a great connection with every character and we missed seeing that. I get that Iris would be his top priority, there’s no question about that. But to act like everyone else doesn’t matter as much and do things that threaten their safety or take away their happiness? Not the Barry we know and love. He didn’t care about Caitlin’s powers at all, selfishly making her use them when he knew how dangerous it was. He let Wally get taken by the speedforce without giving it a second glance. Cisco’s brother dies in Flashpoint and he does nothing about it but goes back in time the second he thinks it could possibly save Iris. He makes Julian talk to him through Savitar even when he said multiple times he didn’t want to. And it was all just for him and his own happiness. Never would I thought the motto of the season would be what Killer Frost said in episode 7 “You get your happy ending everyone else be damned” because that’s literally how he acted the whole time. 

This whole storyline with Iris’ impending death was the thing that really fucked it up. In the beginning of Season 3, things were going well and we saw everyone getting their own storyline, having stuff going on and everything was balanced. Then suddenly this happened and it was all about Barry and his relationship with Iris because she was going to die. Meanwhile we all knew they’d never kill her which makes the storyline a waste to begin with. Everyone else besides Caitlin really who had her Killer Frost arc became like background characters. And honestly, I wouldn’t have minded this storyline if it was actually about IRIS. If we saw her making the most of her last months, having a part in saving her life, being “badass” like we were told she would be. Being the hot shot journalist she supposedly is but we never see. But no. Instead it was about Barry like always and their relationship instead of about her. 

Then the small things they did on the side like Savitar and Killer Frost didn’t get enough focus at all. We didn’t learn anything about why Caitlin became Killer Frost, why the evil inside of her overpowered. Why was she working with Savitar? How was she so “Caitlin” like at the end of the finale out of the blue? What were her motives this whole time? And I bet we won’t ever get these answers. I can only hope we’ll see her finding herself like she wants to do but I don’t have high hopes. And for Savitar, we didn’t get much background about him at all either. 

Then poor HR dies for no good reason whatsoever and what does Barry do? He works with Savitar, the guy who killed him as if it was no big deal. You bet your ass he wouldn’t have thought about doing that if Iris was the one dead like Savitar planned on. It was so ridiculous to see Barry and even Iris try to reason with this guy when he was hellbent on killing Iris and then ends up killing one of their friends anyway. Again, this show is losing the superhero/battle aspect and turning into this emotional cheese fest. 

So yeah, in general this season wasn’t great at all and I can only hope that they’ll start fixing things for the better next season. Honestly with that finale I have no desire to even continue watching but I will anyways (mainly for Grant and to see Caitlin finding herself and what’s next for her.)

How 'Legion,' 'The Ticket' Star Dan Stevens Became the Man of the Moment
'Legion,' 'Beauty & the Beast' star Dan Stevens takes over the art-house with indie drama 'The Ticket' – how the ex-'Downton Abbey' star has won 2017.

Dan Stevens is having a bit of a moment. In February, you could see him Legion, FX’s stellar, must-see Marvel TV series in which the 34-year-old English actor plays a troubled young man who, despite having lived in a mental institution since his teens, discovers that he’s not really schizophrenic. (The bad news: He’s actually an all-powerful mutant, wanted by the government and controlled by a vicious parasite living inside his mind.) A month later, you might waltz down to your local multiplex and detect Stevens under lots of fur, playing the menacing, melancholy monster in Disney’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast. And this week, you can head down to your friendly neighborhood art-house theater and see him in The Ticket, an indie character drama about a blind man who inexplicably regains his sight. Factor in small supporting parts in both skewed rom-com/giant-monster movie Colossal and the Richard Gere vehicle Norman, both hitting theaters in the next few weeks, and though it’s only April, the former Downton Abbey heartthrob seems well on his way to winning 2017.

From how to make a psychedelic superhero show to confirming that Aubrey Plaza is a rock star, our takeaways from a kick-ass first season

But during a phone interview, he says he has a hard time looking at this year as some sort of grand, preplanned breakthrough. Really, Stevens insists, it’s just how circumstances worked out. “A lot of things I’ve been working on over the last few years happen to be coming out at the same time,” he demurs. “I did The Ticket four years ago; Beast was created two years ago; and we shot the Legion pilot almost a year ago to the day. It’s amazing how these [releases] sometimes coincide.”

Working in British theater and television for years, Stevens kept building up his resumé. He was then cast in a period drama that writer-director Julian Fellowes was developing in 2010, a multi-narrative about the masters-and-servants relationships in an English estate. Quicker than you could say “upstairs, downstairs,” Downton Abbey became an unexpected pop cultural phenomenon and his caddish-to-compassionate character Matthew Crawley became a fan favorite. In 2012, Stevens left the popular PBS show  — his character died in a car crash — and he and his family made the trek to New York. Soon, he was appearing on Broadway alongside Jessica Chastain in a Tony-nominated revival of The Heiress. “Jessica was having a similar moment back then,” he recalls. “I think she had seven films that she’d been working on the previous five years come out in one year. So it’s been great to know her and have seen her go through this. It helps.”

Some noticeably non–drawing-room-drama roles followed that garnered Stevens attention – a psychotic soldier in The Guest, a cross-dressing writer in the cult Web series High Maintenance. 

But it was the play that put him in touch with director Ido Fluk, who had been developing a script, inspired by the 2008 economic meltdown, about a blind man whose regained sight activates a materialistic side that leads him to become a predatory success at his real-estate company. After seeing Stevens in The Heiress, the filmmaker knew he had found his star. “When you meet Dan, you realize he’s an incredibly smart person,” Fluk says, adding, “Do you know he was a judge on the Man Booker Prize [in 2012]? What actor do you meet that also has done that?”

“Ido was one of the first directors I met when I got to New York who seemed genuinely excited to collaborate on something,” Stevens says. “It’s a wonderful thing to find that. … I just immediately thought [the script] was one of the most beautiful things I’d ever read. It was almost like a dark fairy tale — it had a real fable quality to it.”

Gloom-flecked fairy tales have been his specialty of late. Even though they were made far apart, it’s hard not to see connections between his work in Legion, Beast and The Ticket. In all three, he plays characters who dance between the shadow and the light — there’s a dark side within these people that cripples them. Sometimes that monstrousness is of their own making, as with his cursed Beast; in Legion, it’s an external evil that his reluctant superhero must battle to the death. When it’s suggested that his Ticket character is also someone who goes through a transformation — from a good soul to a morally bankrupt one — Stevens objects passionately.

“Ido and I really enjoyed this almost taboo idea of ‘What if he actually wasn’t all that great a person before the movie?’” he responds. “It’s interesting that you see this person as going from a nice guy to an awful man. You know, there’s not a huge amount of evidence that his relationships were necessarily that happy beforehand. It’s interesting that people immediately leap to the conclusion that the blind man must be the nice guy. Playing with that taboo felt very alive, very dangerous.

"It’s almost like we shouldn’t make assumptions about anybody,” he adds  with a sarcastic laugh. “It’s a good thing to look around and question a few things – it’s a healthy instinct.” (Asked if that extended to the notion of recasting Josh Gad’s LeFou in Beauty and the Beast as gay, a concept that has caused more controversy than its creators probably intended, Stevens replies, “You know, like a lot of things that people get whipped up about online, [it’s] neither one thing or the other. It certainly made Josh’s character a little more interesting than he might otherwise have been.”)

If Stevens himself has a dark side, he’s done a superb job concealing it from his costars. “There’s a certain level of absurdity to our show, and Dan can really tap into that,” Rachel Keller, his Legion costar, says; she cites the scene in which the two halves of his character’s brain, one of which speaks with a British accent, argue with each other. “He can be very focused, very intense – and then he’ll spot a neighborhood bookstore, get wide-eyed and jump around a little bit: ‘Can we go in there?!’” She laughs. “That actually happened.”

His hot streak has left him very much in-demand. He’ll be part of The Raid filmmaker Gareth Evans’ new Netflix thriller Apostle with Michael Sheen and Lucy Boynton, and another season of Legion beckons. You’ll forgive him if it’s all a bit of a blur. “Somebody made me aware that it’s been five years since I was cast in The Heiress,” he says, almost surprised. “So that’s an interesting five-year sort of chapter-marker right there with the release of The Ticket, Beauty and the Beast and Legion – it’s been five years since I came to the States.”

He takes a minute to reflect on how his life has changed in that time span, remembering where he was when he started the smaller of the three projects. “I walked onto that set straight from the set of Night at the Museum 3,” he recalls, “which was my first big studio [film].” Stevens laughs. “I was Sir Lancelot – this sort of mad, bluff idiot, this giant character.” So from Lancelot to Legion – is this his moment? “It has been an interesting few years,” he admits, before cackling loudly one last time.
