336: You Had Me at 'Splorch'


  comfortable number 336 January 2070 [TS]

  welcome back everybody to the [TS]

  uncomfortable i am your host Jason cell [TS]

  we're here for a fun thing sort of like [TS]

  a draft but also sort of like a a pitch [TS]

  session like we did a while ago about TV [TS]

  reboots we're going to talk about comic [TS]

  book movies now the idea here is there [TS]

  have been a lot of comic book movies [TS]

  lately especially superhero movies and [TS]

  we in our in our conversations not on [TS]

  the show we talked a little bit about [TS]

  how maybe they were all kind of say me [TS]

  and it might be nice to see some [TS]

  different kinds of comic book-based [TS]

  films in the future and so we're just [TS]

  gonna throw these ideas out there of [TS]

  comics that we would like to see made [TS]

  into movies and maybe some ideas of what [TS]

  those movies might be and so yeah it's a [TS]

  little mini draft little idea session [TS]

  joining me to have have some sure some [TS]

  ideas about comic book movies that we [TS]

  that we would like to see are these fine [TS]

  people i'm going to introduce them in [TS]

  the order in which they are going to [TS]

  tell you their ideas first of his first [TS]

  time on the uncomfortable but you may [TS]

  have heard him he is the host of [TS]

  sophomore lit on this very network it's [TS]

  john mccoy hello John welcome [TS]

  hey kids yeah that works it's good to [TS]

  keep kids comics this too ! after all of [TS]

  those were my bank in the spin Iraq [TS]

  David you'll also hear hello hello [TS]

  enough said Monte Ashley base front is [TS]

  that that removing this amount comic [TS]

  book but the moistest jaan hai one of [TS]

  these days somebody's distance a pass my [TS]

  mind I think the most off-putting thing [TS]

  that I could do would be not do a silly [TS]

  voice or character or ténèbres what's [TS]

  wrong with you feeling okay let's just [TS]

  say hello Lisa Schmeisser you'd be high [TS]

  all right John is so nice to meet you [TS]

  via podcast I'm excited to be honest [TS]

  okay and i'll pick Alaska's and this the [TS]

  host it's a fun it's fun group and of [TS]

  course all comic books are allowed [TS]

  Monty also ask me I think it was monday [TS]

  because he likes to really stretch the [TS]

  rules if comic strips would be allowed I [TS]

  said [TS]

  your you thought that was a stretch okay [TS]

  well and it may get weirder I don't even [TS]

  know and that's okay because dance the [TS]

  robot I consider a robot now so finally [TS]

  baby blues the motion picture [TS]

  I'm just saying Ziggy the Cinematic [TS]

  Universe amazing now [TS]

  alright so uh so here we go we do a [TS]

  couple of rounds and then we'll bring [TS]

  out our kind of also also mentioned and [TS]

  that's a podcast John what do you have [TS]

  for us as a as a comic book movie [TS]

  well it's it's been over a decade since [TS]

  the Casper movie and I haven't been that [TS]

  long it has been night 1995 i think that [TS]

  the Harvey Comics universe is is right [TS]

  for a gritty reboot so a picture if you [TS]

  will the the it opens with Casper fading [TS]

  back into consciousness trying to [TS]

  remember who killed him and Casper of [TS]

  course will be played by daniel [TS]

  radcliffe as since he's already played a [TS]

  dead guy and he's got enough arm and he [TS]

  is aided in his in his quest to find his [TS]

  murderer by windy who is the goth Wiccan [TS]

  who inadvertently summons cast for back [TS]

  from the dead [TS]

  I in and I think that she should be [TS]

  played by mae whitman given the strength [TS]

  of her her portrayal in in the scott [TS]

  pilgrim movie and so that the two of [TS]

  them go off and and their aided in their [TS]

  quest by the demon from Hell hot stuff [TS]

  who seems to be on their side but may [TS]

  have a sinister motive for what he does [TS]

  and I think we might my tap patton [TS]

  oswalt is our kind of a stunt casting [TS]

  for that and then also somewhere in [TS]

  there we have to fit in little dot who [TS]

  was after all the original Manic Pixie [TS]

  dream girl with her obsession with polka [TS]

  dots so I assume she would be played by [TS]

  Zooey Deschanel of course as as as the [TS]

  story unravels and as plots are revealed [TS]

  of we we do finally find out that Casper [TS]

  was in fact killed by richie rich so [TS]

  Richard Richie Rich just likes hunting [TS]

  the most dangerous game is that what [TS]

  you're telling me I I that event I I'm [TS]

  spitballing this out here for some [TS]

  suggestions now because I'm you know [TS]

  there's a lot of the Harvey universe [TS]

  that we didn't get in here you know sad [TS]

  sack is not in here baby Huey baby Huey [TS]

  Lou yeah i know so if everyone have some [TS]

  suggestions on what to do i'm thinking [TS]

  you know we could we could tap visionary [TS]

  director zack snyder for this info was [TS]

  solid and give him another universe to [TS]

  mess up yeah he would love to do that [TS]

  murder scene where Casper is murdered i [TS]

  think he would really enjoy making that [TS]

  a gritty Richie Richie Rich's totally [TS]

  like an angry and character and he loves [TS]

  and Rand exactly can get a little Batman [TS]

  action with cadbury is counseling Richie [TS]

  Rich on maybe maybe touching a little [TS]

  bit about his methods and killing in [TS]

  hunting and killing a few other humans [TS]

  could be yeah i'm looking forward to the [TS]

  Stinger when though that's when it sets [TS]

  up the sequel to yeah i was going well I [TS]

  was going to ask what where does this [TS]

  franchise I mean we won't know until we [TS]

  see if the gritty reboot of Casper takes [TS]

  off but what might be some places this [TS]

  universe could go some spin-offs from it [TS]

  do we go to a mutt & Jeff next week [TS]

  where we end I was thinking that because [TS]

  we we get all the big heavy hitters the [TS]

  Harvey universe in on this one this one [TS]

  tentpole movies it's your Avengers it's [TS]

  your Justice League exactly then all [TS]

  them can have their own spin offs or [TS]

  netflix series you know oh nice I think [TS]

  that I don't know why they haven't done [TS]

  this already quite frankly huh [TS]

  incredibly bit of transparent this is [TS]

  going far better than I had even hoped i [TS]

  have to say [TS]

  that's amazing [TS]

  anything else or is that I mean that was [TS]

  a lot but there's a lot you did the [TS]

  casting do I appreciate that stunt [TS]

  casting I wasn't I wasn't planning on [TS]

  well Casting I don't feel bad now this [TS]

  is my this is my first time on i thought [TS]

  i'd take notes maybe I was wrong [TS]

  you know I think I don't take at Fantasy [TS]

  casting is one of the things we enjoy [TS]

  quite great quite greatly i think yousa [TS]

  I would be disappointed at least it [TS]

  didn't throw in some casting decisions [TS]

  when we get to her you know I have them [TS]

  i know you do I David lure of how Sheree [TS]

  sure your pitch with us [TS]

  well I I went a little more serious for [TS]

  the first round now I know but it's a [TS]

  bit feel like I think and it's it's a [TS]

  book that is kind of well the book [TS]

  itself we know it's an actual book and [TS]

  the comic book a lot of people didn't [TS]

  know about Michael Chabon wrote The [TS]

  Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and clay [TS]

  which is about the history of the comic [TS]

  book industry and his two characters [TS]

  created a book called The Escapist and [TS]

  dark horse comics put out a quarterly [TS]

  series for a couple years the Amazing [TS]

  Adventures of the escapist there's even [TS]

  an issue written by Will Eisner where he [TS]

  gets to meet the spirit and it's kind of [TS]

  amazing i mean it is pitch perfect you [TS]

  know 4002 I know people are shocked that [TS]

  i would like this and so I would love [TS]

  they've been trying to make a Kavalier [TS]

  and clay movie for years they've been [TS]

  talking about all it'll be a miniseries [TS]

  it's actually been adapted for the stage [TS]

  I want to see the comic book I want to [TS]

  see the escapist and and luna moth and [TS]

  all of the other characters and his [TS]

  nemesis mr. machine gun and I want to [TS]

  see a little bit of that meta pulling [TS]

  aside the curtain going oh there's [TS]

  Kavalier and clay back there but we're [TS]

  really focused on the escapist I think [TS]

  that would be a really cool movie maybe [TS]

  really cool miniseries I don't know [TS]

  don't remind me what it what the power [TS]

  dizzy izzy like the the spirit or [TS]

  something where he's just a guy or does [TS]

  your powers he i think he has powers as [TS]

  I recall he is a member of the League of [TS]

  the gold key and he has learned certain [TS]

  mental tricks [TS]

  his main thing is being able to escape [TS]

  from any on trade he's like he's like [TS]

  Houdini and so he gets tied up and [TS]

  chained up and you see this is a movie [TS]

  with like really crazy art direction [TS]

  sort of like the the Dick Tracy movie [TS]

  tried to look like a comic from the [TS]

  forties [TS]

  oh yeah yeah I would love to see it [TS]

  where the the few times we get to peek [TS]

  behind the curtain [TS]

  it's very realistic and very drab 1940s [TS]

  New York and when we're back in the [TS]

  reality of the the escapist it is very [TS]

  much the the bright colors and you know [TS]

  just done well unlike Dick Tracy there's [TS]

  a rogue's gallery in here or in a [TS]

  collection of characters that you know [TS]

  the it reminds me of I mean this is what [TS]

  watch men has to where it's this [TS]

  collection of essentially Golden Age [TS]

  type characters and their i love [TS]

  whenever any I'm any modern take on on [TS]

  the sort of Heroes has that collection [TS]

  of characters that are all in her [TS]

  interacting that the tick did that the [TS]

  animated series had a had a league of of [TS]

  Golden Age heroes i just i love those i [TS]

  love those kinds of characters they're [TS]

  just so enjoyable to watch [TS]

  I mean seriously if you can find copies [TS]

  of the the darkers I mean they're [TS]

  they're you know they're 80 page but [TS]

  they're in the nice format they're not [TS]

  comic-book comic books right the graphic [TS]

  novel style yeah they are comic book [TS]

  comic books you snob and well you know [TS]

  they're perfect bound the only [TS]

  difference is they're perfect bound [TS]

  their Nazi April is what they are [TS]

  yes that's that's that's that's the [TS]

  ticket they're not stable [TS]

  David hate staples Monty Ashley what [TS]

  about you what's your what's your first [TS]

  comic book movie pitch well i'm a big [TS]

  fan of a writer and artist named evan [TS]

  dorkin his name is most popular comic [TS]

  books include milk and cheese and hectic [TS]

  planet which is also a pirate core both [TS]

  of which would be a lot of fun and I [TS]

  would go to them but explaining them [TS]

  would be kind of complicated row or are [TS]

  we going to get inducted into a very [TS]

  special club tonight we're not the elbow [TS]

  club is great but if you had a pilot [TS]

  that you can see an adult swim sometimes [TS]

  the Evan door [TS]

  can project i would like to see a movie [TS]

  of is Superman and Batman world's [TS]

  funnest who [TS]

  yes this is a comic in which Superman [TS]

  and Batman are bedeviled by mr. mixes [TS]

  pit lick and bat-mite who are [TS]

  suspiciously similar interdimensional [TS]

  pimps who are not omnipotent basically [TS]

  what happens is Superman Batman hanging [TS]

  around mr. mixes picnic and that might [TS]

  show up i think mr. makes his pit like [TS]

  accidentally killed Robin so bad might [TS]

  accidentally on purpose kill Superman so [TS]

  mixer makes a bit like Phil's Batman and [TS]

  then they kind of get into a bigger [TS]

  fight and destroy the entire universe [TS]

  that universe was earth one which was at [TS]

  that point being drawn by dave gibbons [TS]

  so they get in a chase that goes to the [TS]

  Phantom Zone ends up in North to which [TS]

  is drawn by sheldon mold off who by the [TS]

  way to the original appearance of that [TS]

  might and the original they destroy that [TS]

  universe and throughout the course of [TS]

  this comic book they go to like 40 [TS]

  different universes like they go to the [TS]

  dark knight returns universe which is [TS]

  being drawn by Frank Miller they go to [TS]

  the DC Animated universe drawn by [TS]

  produced him they go to the crisis on [TS]

  Infinite Earths world they are super [TS]

  friends they go to earth prime which is [TS]

  our world being photographs every [TS]

  universe gets dark men and I'll get [TS]

  destroyed through hilarious fourth wall [TS]

  breaking and it's great to my proposal [TS]

  is that we have a movie that starts in [TS]

  the current DC Universe like the zack [TS]

  snyder Superman vs Batman grimy really [TS]

  dark and portents that so that we can [TS]

  destroy and leave it in ruins yes I like [TS]

  this and the lot of them they go to the [TS]

  tim burton Batman they go to the [TS]

  scripture read Superman they go to [TS]

  batman the animated series the arrow TV [TS]

  series the flash TV series from 1990 [TS]

  Swamp Thing anything remotely DC [TS]

  Universe we just have them show up in [TS]

  for 5 to 10 minutes destroy the universe [TS]

  and move on to someone i have passed it [TS]

  I don't think we need huge stars up top [TS]

  because we're gonna have a ton of cameos [TS]

  Clooney will totally come in show up in [TS]

  the bathroom for five minutes to be [TS]

  killed I think you'd be totally into [TS]

  that [TS]

  so yeah for mr. mixes pit lick Wallace [TS]

  Shawn like a little work live action and [TS]

  voice and for bat-mite I'm kind of going [TS]

  to enrage the Nerds because there's no [TS]

  reason the fifth dimension Olympic needs [TS]

  to be a dude so I'm gonna cast judy [TS]

  greer who i think has the brake energy [TS]

  04 invented the fanboy like that so you [TS]

  can finally do something other than play [TS]

  and upset uh you know spouse yeah we're [TS]

  sister or aunt she has played a [TS]

  superhero before you play death girl in [TS]

  the specials that special gun was making [TS]

  it less popular superhero [TS]

  yeah that's my pitch world's funnest [TS]

  Monty Martha was my mom's name to the [TS]

  only everybody's mom was named the same [TS]

  things will be fine voice s what do you [TS]

  have for us [TS]

  I I felt that my first round pick I i [TS]

  had to fulfill the promise I made a [TS]

  promise like a blood oath to a friend [TS]

  the Batman vs Superman dawn of overlong [TS]

  titles has been mentioned already in sly [TS]

  reference and and I feel it only [TS]

  appropriate that my first-round pick be [TS]

  Apollo in midnighter from the DC [TS]

  Universe characters created by warren [TS]

  ellis as analogues to Superman and [TS]

  Batman with one big crazy queer twist [TS]

  and that is that they're gay and their [TS]

  husbands and they fight crime that the [TS]

  crime fighting is not the twist [TS]

  yes Apollo nighter dawn of gayness the [TS]

  DC universe needs to get more gay really [TS]

  fast because frankly it's really sad [TS]

  right now [TS]

  cinematically and and at the very least [TS]

  they could they could take a progressive [TS]

  leap forward and and and do something [TS]

  interesting I am actually serious in [TS]

  that I think that these characters are a [TS]

  much more interesting deconstructions of [TS]

  the superhero tropes that we know and [TS]

  have seen a million times by now in in a [TS]

  way that gives into the thousand ships [TS]

  that have sailed from all kinds of [TS]

  knowing glances between cap and Bucky [TS]

  Superman and [TS]

  batman while smashing sinks and toilets [TS]

  on each other they're there they're so [TS]

  much the inferred by fans that could [TS]

  absolutely be real and smashing sinks [TS]

  and toilets sounds so innuendo later I [TS]

  think makes me think of the Spirit movie [TS]

  how I'm sorry [TS]

  try not to but you know they they could [TS]

  even cross yet another bridge because [TS]

  they're sort of Superman and Batman but [TS]

  they're not exactly superman and batman [TS]

  and this could finally be DC one-upping [TS]

  what Deadpool did and doing really [TS]

  explicit gay sex scenes [TS]

  oh interesting pitch let's get back to [TS]

  the Smashing of the bathtub does that [TS]

  work exactly [TS]

  I do like this pitch because I do like [TS]

  those characters and i think it's a it's [TS]

  a really interesting I i really enjoyed [TS]

  the recent midnighter series i was going [TS]

  to miniseries well i can select 12 [TS]

  issues so it kinda was where they had [TS]

  broken up and he was really unhappy [TS]

  about it and kind of on the rebound and [TS]

  that was fun to the storm it was fun to [TS]

  see them in storm watch back in the day [TS]

  Lisa had me read those rights reimagine [TS]

  the authority right yeah I would I would [TS]

  I would introduce them and then you can [TS]

  do the team movie down the line and hate [TS]

  have something if you don't get out [TS]

  yourself just until my turn in the draft [TS]

  I'm just saying I'm just saying it gives [TS]

  the way for a thing it paves the way for [TS]

  the sex scenes will have to i think [TS]

  we'll have to chat run that by the [TS]

  studio well we won't we're just gonna [TS]

  we're just gonna just go there and print [TS]

  money just print money and i'm talking [TS]

  about monthly i'm honestly kind of [TS]

  serious about that i mean what part of [TS]

  the reason that that one else created [TS]

  these characters wasn't just as kind of [TS]

  a cheeky in joke it was it was a huh [TS]

  here's a way to slip some actual decent [TS]

  social commentary into something that [TS]

  can come off as oh these are passed each [TS]

  character's high o.o they actually have [TS]

  a more interesting and intricate [TS]

  relationships Superman and Lois Lane [TS]

  have for 30 years [TS]

  interesting that's that's exactly it is [TS]

  that they're they're able to have [TS]

  details of their relationship that you [TS]

  know one of the challenges with with [TS]

  anything like Superman and I [TS]

  man is its how do you have those [TS]

  characters relate and Apollo a [TS]

  midnighter we know how they relate and [TS]

  and there's no subtext there's text and [TS]

  there's something delightful about that [TS]

  okay Lisa it's your turn so I'm gonna [TS]

  have to share my google doc with you [TS]

  because I swear my number one pitch was [TS]

  for the authority and for those of you [TS]

  who may or may not know apollon [TS]

  midnighter were members of this ensemble [TS]

  at the turn of the return helenium I [TS]

  feel like the franchise's be launched [TS]

  because instead of it being a superhero [TS]

  movie where the superheroes enforce the [TS]

  status quo where we love the world the [TS]

  way it is [TS]

  even with terrible environmental things [TS]

  happening in sure there's a few [TS]

  dictatorships but we don't do diplomacy [TS]

  we just do punchi punchi instead with [TS]

  the authority does is they basically say [TS]

  we have a boatload of super [TS]

  scientifically advanced technology we [TS]

  have superpowers and we have decided [TS]

  here's how we're going to make the world [TS]

  a better place we are going to change [TS]

  the world we re making it the image that [TS]

  we wanted to bring it if you have [TS]

  disagreements and i like that approach [TS]

  because i think it challenges the [TS]

  predominant paradigm and superhero [TS]

  movies because you look at the Avengers [TS]

  and what is that movie if not a defense [TS]

  of the status quo even age of Ultron is [TS]

  is basically them saying okay so we're [TS]

  cleaning up this mess we made and [TS]

  alright it's good to ignore that ignore [TS]

  think that flew in the sky its fine and [TS]

  so the MCU has a whole lot of Henry but [TS]

  fundamentally the end of the day like [TS]

  nobody has said we have godlike powers [TS]

  let's remake the world [TS]

  nobody's doing that in the dcu i would [TS]

  like to see somebody do that i'm [TS]

  fascinated by the massive power [TS]

  imbalance and the authorities the [TS]

  perfect time to do it because you do [TS]

  have again Apollo nighter you are you [TS]

  know Batman and Batman and Superman and [TS]

  married and during the run of the [TS]

  authority there actually a really [TS]

  functional couple and it's fun to watch [TS]

  they are led by a woman named Jenny [TS]

  sparks who is the avatar of the 20th [TS]

  century her powers electricity and as in [TS]

  she can control what you can control the [TS]

  electricity generated by the human body [TS]

  she can travel through electricity she [TS]

  can summon it called down from the sky [TS]

  she appears to be about a young [TS]

  twentysomething British woman but the [TS]

  thing is she popped into being at in [TS]

  1900 and she set to die when the century [TS]

  changes there was like a Jenny steam for [TS]

  the for the note for the [TS]

  eighteen-hundreds there have been you [TS]

  know Jenny waterpower things like that [TS]

  so you're pitching a period piece i am [TS]

  i'm pitching in nineteen nineties [TS]

  nostalgia period piece because what it [TS]

  does is it basically it asks a lot of [TS]

  what if questions and creates in all [TS]

  history so it ties into that hole hot [TS]

  topic nineteen nineties was great and a [TS]

  sensibility that the kids so like today [TS]

  you got it so you've got you've got a [TS]

  team run by by by a young woman I'm i [TS]

  see it as being Natalie Dormer [TS]

  yeah right yeah yeah especially because [TS]

  she's she's she's she's in sort of she's [TS]

  in sort of a furious love with the world [TS]

  as it were like she loves the world but [TS]

  she wants to be better and she's like [TS]

  yeah I'm gonna make it better before i [TS]

  leave and her second-in-command again in [TS]

  Jack Hawksmoor who as a child was [TS]

  subject to a series of grueling alien [TS]

  abductions where they fill his body with [TS]

  all sorts of weird machineries but the [TS]

  result is he can literally talk to [TS]

  cities and move between cities like you [TS]

  put them down in New York City can [TS]

  instantly figure out like we're [TS]

  wrongdoing is happening be moved there [TS]

  and fix it like the the the premises if [TS]

  if the city is ill it calls out to him [TS]

  and he has to go fix what's going on on [TS]

  his weakness of course is the rural [TS]

  countryside [TS]

  and um he is old and battered and fried [TS]

  on climate like sound oh so you have him [TS]

  to use is this is getting british but [TS]

  never with me and in turn is also a dude [TS]

  named the doctor who is just as [TS]

  profoundly stone Dutch junkie who [TS]

  happens also to be tapped into the life [TS]

  force of the earth and you can heal [TS]

  anything or kill people with diseases [TS]

  and there's the engineer who's this [TS]

  beautiful latina lady Angela Angeles [TS]

  because her name and you know i like the [TS]

  girl from jim from jane the virgin for [TS]

  that because she offset some of the [TS]

  Nazca some of that some of the hardest [TS]

  British business and then there's shen [TS]

  who is an agent lady who also happens to [TS]

  have wings and she flies and she's [TS]

  called the Huntress and so you've got [TS]

  you've got what is basically I mean one [TS]

  else wrote wrote them and and Brian huge [TS]

  illustrated them and they look like a [TS]

  Benetton ad to kill you [TS]

  happened some and that's kind of the [TS]

  appeal and I think I don't find you know [TS]

  the first movie just shows them over [TS]

  throwing a bunch of terrorists regimes [TS]

  providing humanitarian aid and then [TS]

  having a standoff with the united [TS]

  nations because the United Nations their [TS]

  own pet superheroes and then when this [TS]

  movie breaks out big because it will [TS]

  because you know as much as pointed out [TS]

  the gay sex and also you know strong [TS]

  lady role models and all of that then [TS]

  subsequent movies have them tending of [TS]

  alien invaders and dealing with rival [TS]

  team of corporate sponsors superheroes [TS]

  by a cartel billionaires who want the [TS]

  old world order back and then there's [TS]

  the y2k where oh my gosh Jenny sparks is [TS]

  going to type what happens next what [TS]

  takes her place and that's like the big [TS]

  you know two-part boom things explode [TS]

  all over the place it'll be fantastic [TS]

  any social media [TS]

  no Jenny quantum theory quantum yeah way [TS]

  back in the day that it was going to be [TS]

  Jenny quantum and the thing is Jenny [TS]

  quantum ages at her own pace [TS]

  so you can easily do that you can easily [TS]

  lift from the from the book the plot [TS]

  line where you have like a pangalactic [TS]

  force trying to kill babies that are [TS]

  born at the stroke of y2k and then the [TS]

  authority has to go stop them and then [TS]

  they find baby jenny quantum and she's [TS]

  like maybe that is barring and so then [TS]

  you've got your ear your hipster teenage [TS]

  kid for those who are interested in [TS]

  comic books and some of the characters [TS]

  that you've heard about here [TS]

  none other than [TS]

  warren ellis has been given the reins of [TS]

  the entire wildstorm universe which [TS]

  includes the authority stormwatch [TS]

  characters and it's being relaunched in [TS]

  an ongoing series and sometimes series [TS]

  of the main series being called the wild [TS]

  storm which would be should be out [TS]

  relatively soon i figured over the [TS]

  course of like these 45 authority the [TS]

  visual bringing this from watch because [TS]

  you'll have the weatherman come back you [TS]

  might even have Henry bendix come back [TS]

  and then the second weatherman you'll [TS]

  have some of the people that you songs [TS]

  from watch like the do to get thrown [TS]

  into the sun and then you can bring some [TS]

  gin 13 a bunch of the world some things [TS]

  but the point is the whole ethos of this [TS]

  series is we have superpowers of course [TS]

  we're going to change the world as we [TS]

  see fit and then the question is what [TS]

  will happen is the world react to that [TS]

  we have a giant spaceship that that [TS]

  slips between the oh I want of realities [TS]

  what we have lead yeah yeah they've got [TS]

  they've got that crazy spaceship they've [TS]

  got the Nevada guard with all the [TS]

  weapons in the food it's just it's [TS]

  bananas and like is it like i said kind [TS]

  of inverts the whole superhero movie [TS]

  trope because the biggest problem all [TS]

  the action movies is all we must defend [TS]

  the status quo it's ok if they hatin [TS]

  Ferris as long as they don't hate and [TS]

  fear is that much which makes no sense [TS]

  and you know the DC was your kind of the [TS]

  same thing where everyone is is still [TS]

  well since these people are really [TS]

  uncomfortable as perhaps we should not [TS]

  make them so uncomfortable with us and [TS]

  also might as well just lean in man you [TS]

  owe leading use this to your advantage [TS]

  so you powerful beings alright so myself [TS]

  and Lisa both channeling lots of royalty [TS]

  money to warren ellis yes [TS]

  fair enough yes yes you are Nellis [TS]

  alright i will close out this first [TS]

  round with a pitch for i would like a [TS]

  comic book movie that it i'm gonna do a [TS]

  superhero movie here too i know that [TS]

  there are other pitches out there i [TS]

  think my next one will not be but this [TS]

  1i instead i'm going to change the John [TS]

  rabe I want a romantic comedy about [TS]

  somebody with a suit with superhero [TS]

  powers and i'm going to pitch the basing [TS]

  it on Tom zollars webcomic loving capes [TS]

  which is about a regular woman named [TS]

  abby who is whose boyfriend of a few [TS]

  months mark reveals that he is actually [TS]

  not a not just an account [TS]

  he is an accountant fully licensed but [TS]

  he is also the Crusader one of the most [TS]

  powerful superheroes in the world and [TS]

  yes he does have a cape and it is kind [TS]

  of an adorable comic about the [TS]

  relationship and the superhero trappings [TS]

  are on the periphery and I think it [TS]

  would make a really fun comic because I [TS]

  a there was a time when I would think [TS]

  that making jokes about kind of [TS]

  superhero tropes would be lost on the [TS]

  general public but boy we have left that [TS]

  time now we everybody gets everything [TS]

  involving superheroes now so i think the [TS]

  time has come for a romantic comedy [TS]

  about a superhero and rather than doing [TS]

  it about like Lois and Clark or [TS]

  something like that let's just go to 11 [TS]

  capes and do it there so that's my [TS]

  that's my pitch it's a it's a it's a [TS]

  romantic comedy about how you find love [TS]

  in the world when there are super [TS]

  villains trying to kill you John what do [TS]

  you have for a second pic for this one [TS]

  I'm going to go a little smaller serious [TS]

  and talk about something I've actually [TS]

  like to see and and that's a comic based [TS]

  on Jaime Hernandez is a long-running [TS]

  lokas characters from love and rockets [TS]

  which goes back to nineteen eighty i [TS]

  believe i was reading these back in the [TS]

  eighties and have followed them through [TS]

  the nineties and on into the two [TS]

  thousands anyone who's read these comics [TS]

  know they start in a fictional barrio of [TS]

  Los Angeles called hoppers and follow to [TS]

  punk kids [TS]

  Maggie and Hopi as they traverse this [TS]

  fantasy world of science fiction and [TS]

  crazy Central American countries with [TS]

  lost dinosaurs and strange millionaires [TS]

  with horns and then it serve settles [TS]

  down over time into becoming a very [TS]

  closely observed character study about [TS]

  these two young women as they grow out [TS]

  of there punk years [TS]

  and have to kind of figure out what [TS]

  they're going to do next with their [TS]

  lives and as time goes on those fantasy [TS]

  and science fiction trapeze kind of fall [TS]

  to the wayside although they do come [TS]

  back from time to time in strangely [TS]

  surreal ways and this is a just a anyone [TS]

  who's read love and rockets which if you [TS]

  don't know that was where the name came [TS]

  from not the band the band stole the [TS]

  name from the common in this is one of [TS]

  the quintessential comics of the black [TS]

  and white revolution of the eighties and [TS]

  get Jaime Hernandez has gone on to [TS]

  become a huge illustrator for The New [TS]

  Yorker recently recently and [TS]

  unfortunately he doesn't put out as many [TS]

  comics's he used to but he's still [TS]

  following the adventures of magazine [TS]

  Hopi and I was thinking that for Maggie [TS]

  I could see her being played by dascha [TS]

  Polanco who slays on the orange is the [TS]

  new black and checked and I thought Hopi [TS]

  who is in the comic is Scottish and [TS]

  columbia could be played by Aubrey Plaza [TS]

  who is Irish in Puerto Rican Izzy the [TS]

  the creepy friend of theirs who it has [TS]

  all the religious fantasies is eii I [TS]

  don't know who I would go for but i'm [TS]

  thinking maybe Gabrielle Gabrielle areas [TS]

  who plays valencia on crazy [TS]

  ex-girlfriend because she's thin enough [TS]

  and and and megan hope you have this [TS]

  statuesque superhero ask a girlfriend [TS]

  named penny century who I think should [TS]

  be played by Lake Bell because she's [TS]

  tall and imposing enough and she can [TS]

  play crazy to and and here's the here's [TS]

  the kicker is I think the first half of [TS]

  the film which is science fiction mixed [TS]

  with punk rock would be directed by alex [TS]

  cox [TS]

  the second half as it goes on would be [TS]

  turned over to Aurora Guerrero who is a [TS]

  a contemporary chicana LGBT director who [TS]

  does these slices of light films about [TS]

  about mexican girls in Los Angeles so it [TS]

  would it would it would it would slowly [TS]

  fade out and maybe somewhere in the [TS]

  middle we could get Robert Rodriguez to [TS]

  do like a fantasy scene that's great [TS]

  that's awesome [TS]

  I'd watched I want to see that [TS]

  tremendously under underappreciated [TS]

  comics and i should mention that those [TS]

  brothers Hernandez are among 17 nominees [TS]

  who is your voters will vote on to [TS]

  potentially inducted into the hall of [TS]

  fame this year I John for 4 first first [TS]

  appearance you're killing it [TS]

  good job you're literally redefining it [TS]

  killing it made on this serious making [TS]

  always look bad yeah you doing a great [TS]

  job [TS]

  that's awesome well I'll shut up now [TS]

  David it's your turn the top top it [TS]

  yeah right no pressure be that loser as [TS]

  John knows i was really tempted to [TS]

  choose Fred Basset but I just not so on [TS]

  the board you know i love heist films i [TS]

  love a good heist [TS]

  I love the oceans 11 films i'm curious [TS]

  about the new oceans eight film the all [TS]

  female version of Ocean's eleven i guess [TS]

  they only need thirty percent last I [TS]

  don't know and I'd really love to adapt [TS]

  one of my favorite graphic novel series [TS]

  and yet she's a French street urchin and [TS]

  a master thief [TS]

  she's kind of part Tintin and park Nancy [TS]

  Drew [TS]

  she's a thorn in the side of the grumpy [TS]

  police detective who you know at [TS]

  asnières a little older than I would [TS]

  think but surely there's a young as near [TS]

  tight who could do this Nick Offerman [TS]

  would be fun and and for some reason I [TS]

  just see Alicia the candor in this just [TS]

  you know in a mask and dancing across [TS]

  the rooftops of Paris and maybe David [TS]

  Tennant as [TS]

  her nemesis and sometimes very well her [TS]

  rival her sometimes partner-in-crime [TS]

  missya i just did there three [TS]

  collections out there it is utterly [TS]

  delightful I we know it's it's they're [TS]

  just good high stories with a real sense [TS]

  of humor in a real sense of adventure [TS]

  someone make these movies or let me do [TS]

  them i would love to tooth lot of fun I [TS]

  like that one [TS]

  Monty what do you have early one morning [TS]

  we open on an ordinary house the Sun [TS]

  rises with a mighty splurge and we zoom [TS]

  inside your hero waking up [TS]

  he sits up in bed and scratches his [TS]

  belly he puts his huge floppy feet in [TS]

  some huge floppy shoes and stretch it [TS]

  out his spine to the sound of a [TS]

  mind-boggling array of cracks and spooks [TS]

  and springs he goes forth into a strange [TS]

  world of notary publics large Canaries [TS]

  and gorilla suits the opening title hits [TS]

  the screen with a magnificent khatoon [TS]

  Don Martin the movie every fully artist [TS]

  in the west coast [TS]

  gotta love don martin mad magazine i'm [TS]

  so excited about this [TS]

  you had me at sports haha idea where [TS]

  this is going I couldn't wait so great i [TS]

  think the fish budget for this movie we [TS]

  have to hire Greenpeace starts person [TS]

  that you have more montia they're more [TS]

  details of what what I veterinarian a [TS]

  rather than selling the rest of the [TS]

  memory after I mean I figure we die it [TS]

  would be about mr. Bester tester it [TS]

  would be about the noted notary Republic [TS]

  he wrote about a couple of times mostly [TS]

  would just be people going up to vending [TS]

  machines and then something crazy [TS]

  happens to them i think it would have to [TS]

  have a lot of title cards intersperse [TS]

  would say one Sunday afternoon to the [TS]

  park or a visit to do the dentists [TS]

  yes well you notice I did start my pitch [TS]

  with early one morning which is you [TS]

  don't use several times that would be an [TS]

  interesting movie i'm trying to that [TS]

  you're going to find a good screenwriter [TS]

  for that 1i think just to have it be [TS]

  make any sort of sense but will you hear [TS]

  my next one even bigger stretch to make [TS]

  into a story interesting ok boys is what [TS]

  do you have for us in trying to narrow [TS]

  down ideas you know back in the day many [TS]

  of us made these lists of oh man I would [TS]

  look for this to be a movie the default [TS]

  used to always be something needed to be [TS]

  a movie but a lot of these sequential [TS]

  art series really lend themselves much [TS]

  better to television at this point at [TS]

  Strom yes y the last man yeah you know [TS]

  people animal people say oh I want a [TS]

  saga movie [TS]

  no no you want to saw got no make a TV [TS]

  series yeah it's dead it it doesn't fit [TS]

  into that bucket now there is something [TS]

  that the author has stated that he has [TS]

  no intent to ever adapter that medium [TS]

  and I mentioned y the last man because [TS]

  that author is bryan cave on who with [TS]

  Marcus Martin data series on their [TS]

  website panels to get called the private [TS]

  i set in the year 2076 after an event [TS]

  referred to as the cloudburst where [TS]

  everyone's private information gets [TS]

  leaked online [TS]

  everybody's John Podesta uh pasta [TS]

  recipes get leaked online and they're [TS]

  sexting and all of their private [TS]

  communication everything that people put [TS]

  into the digital either has been wiki [TS]

  leaks all over the bed of the world and [TS]

  and everyone can see it plain as day I [TS]

  to the point that there is no internet [TS]

  anymore people are incredibly guarded [TS]

  about private information their identity [TS]

  itself people walk around in public [TS]

  routinely just wearing masks of [TS]

  different sorts and other utilizing as [TS]

  many ways as possible to obscure their [TS]

  identities they as they can and among [TS]

  the the most dangerous outlaws on this [TS]

  planet Earth of the year 2076 are [TS]

  unlicensed journalists yes indeed to be [TS]

  a journalist you have to have a license [TS]

  and one of these unlicensed journalists [TS]

  gets tied up in a future pulp series of [TS]

  unfortunate events having nothing to do [TS]

  with the new Netflix series or book [TS]

  series that lead him on the trail of a [TS]

  crime or series of crimes or who knows [TS]

  nesting dolls of crimes and crimes and [TS]

  crimes [TS]

  it's it's phenomenally interesting and [TS]

  and and aggressively cinematic to me [TS]

  it's it's something that was available [TS]

  originally as I guess you would say [TS]

  widescreen format pdfs exclusively on [TS]

  their website panels to for [TS]

  whatever price you think is fair [TS]

  including free and they put that in a [TS]

  parenthetical on that very price listing [TS]

  so you can you can read the whole thing [TS]

  for absolutely nothing and then pay them [TS]

  after the fact or there is a beautiful [TS]

  hardcover edition of it's out now but it [TS]

  is it is one of the most directly [TS]

  lending to cinematic adaptation comics [TS]

  ever in the last 10 years and it's [TS]

  phenomenal [TS]

  it's great and you can you can just [TS]

  download that from panel [TS]

  pay-what-you-want I believe get those it [TS]

  what you want [TS]

  alright Lisa what do you have katheryn [TS]

  winnick place Power Girl captain winning [TS]

  i don't know how many of you are [TS]

  familiar with her work is like pizza on [TS]

  Vikings which is the history channel [TS]

  Vikings is a magnificent hot mess of a [TS]

  TV show and [TS]

  I love it so just for the wing budget [TS]

  alone but katheryn winnick plays I'm [TS]

  lagertha who was indeed part of the [TS]

  North sagas as leader of the shield [TS]

  maidens and then later a North Earl in [TS]

  her own right quite a skilled invader [TS]

  and quite a skilled holder of land and [TS]

  builder of kingdoms she is a phenomenal [TS]

  physical actress she well the best way [TS]

  of putting is she has the kind of [TS]

  convincing physicality where if she was [TS]

  to put on the Power Girl suit you would [TS]

  actually believe this is a woman who [TS]

  could grind you into a fine powder and I [TS]

  would build a move around her and I've [TS]

  always liked Power Girl the DC Universe [TS]

  and I always felt like her [TS]

  the sheer dazzling variety of backstory [TS]

  they have tried to give this poor [TS]

  character is just beyond is just beyond [TS]

  I'm describing in in this a podcast you [TS]

  can actually probably launched an entire [TS]

  separate podcast called power girl what [TS]

  and then spend hours discussing what [TS]

  they've done to this poor woman over the [TS]

  course of her existence but long story [TS]

  short that the most i can boil it down [TS]

  to what we boiled down to this movie is [TS]

  she is a Kryptonian from a parallel [TS]

  universe and through some you know [TS]

  hand-wavy tiny whiny stuff she gets [TS]

  flung into this universe there's no way [TS]

  to crashing through a boob window [TS]

  well this is the things that the boob [TS]

  window will get address i promise you [TS]

  that are you mad I'm shocked [TS]

  yeah anyway the point is is that you get [TS]

  a citizen of Krypton from parallel [TS]

  universes stuck into this one she is [TS]

  everything is just different enough with [TS]

  the Kryptonians in this universe where [TS]

  she's she's a little thrown off by that [TS]

  she is even more thrown off by the fact [TS]

  she can't go home and she's expected to [TS]

  stay here and the whole movie is [TS]

  basically going to be how does this [TS]

  exile and craft a new home and a new [TS]

  identity in a place for everything is [TS]

  just so slightly off normal and where [TS]

  she happens to have super where she [TS]

  happens to have superpowers and it's not [TS]

  regarded the same way it was back in the [TS]

  place where she comes from [TS]

  so it's it's a fish-out-of-water story [TS]

  and by the individual prom like at the [TS]

  beginning she has a uniform and [TS]

  bizarrely enough like whatever logo has [TS]

  significance to her own planet [TS]

  mysteriously disappears in this one and [TS]

  she spends the the movie figuring out [TS]

  you know what symbol is she going to put [TS]

  out there to represent herself [TS]

  in this strange new land it's it's um [TS]

  yeah i like the idea of woman next aisle [TS]

  is a strong tough emotionally guarded [TS]

  woman who who knows that she can never [TS]

  go back home what is she gonna do how [TS]

  she gonna handle it and handle being a [TS]

  superhero on top of that like the first [TS]

  time she's an injustice league meeting [TS]

  and she's like I know none of these [TS]

  people why matter rotation with you what [TS]

  am I supposed to do like I think it [TS]

  would be an interesting would also to to [TS]

  see how superheroes get integrated into [TS]

  a wider community or what kind of [TS]

  relationship they're asked to have with [TS]

  the place they're asked to protect us [TS]

  losing my question is is the boob window [TS]

  caused by her symbol falling off and she [TS]

  seeks a new one or is the boob window [TS]

  her symbol that she decides on having [TS]

  the Grinch's ourselves that caused by [TS]

  carmine infantino going let's show some [TS]

  cleavage I think what happens is the [TS]

  envy kind of burns away and she realizes [TS]

  that there's no point in you like her [TS]

  first active of well what the heck let [TS]

  money or not your point your physicists [TS]

  can get me back where I need to go and [TS]

  she's like well and I I don't believe in [TS]

  wearing a symbol that doesn't mean [TS]

  anything to me so until something means [TS]

  something to me I'm just gonna wear this [TS]

  suit and it makes people uncomfortable [TS]

  and they're a little weirded out by it [TS]

  and she's like no you know what you're [TS]

  just gonna have to deal because if [TS]

  you're uncomfortable imagine how I feel [TS]

  punch no no is it a boob window or a [TS]

  boob transom or a bay window or a boob [TS]

  transom religious ok and and for like [TS]

  practical intents and purposes it's [TS]

  going to be a very small translate the [TS]

  smallest legally allowed possible [TS]

  transit prevent elation yes because you [TS]

  know she is moving around and things [TS]

  it's not going to be like the kind of [TS]

  boob window you see when someone like [TS]

  Frank show was doing a cover right you [TS]

  go carefully pose it was still here why [TS]

  that you got movement although i think [TS]

  there will be a scene where she pointed [TS]

  her own chest and says you see these on [TS]

  my planet these mean hope it's zack [TS]

  snyder will be directing this of course [TS]

  very director zack snyder your moment I [TS]

  didn't mention zack snyder's also [TS]

  directing my Don Martin are you going [TS]

  yes my friend but I get Zack Snyder and [TS]

  everything so far is going to have a sex [TS]

  scene that that's going to be backed by [TS]

  hallelujah don't know I figured [TS]

  obviously to be honest I i figured that [TS]

  the rest of brothers would be great pick [TS]

  for power ensures i love I other fight [TS]

  choreography [TS]

  yeah and I like the zip in the pace and [TS]

  the temple that they generally have in [TS]

  their movies I kind of see her like [TS]

  pointing at her her transom and then [TS]

  saying look up here and the guy was that [TS]

  she just punches him [TS]

  yes it's like somebody just tuned in to [TS]

  David saying she points to transcendence [TS]

  and i know not everyone will be laughing [TS]

  when they have like the girls night out [TS]

  with her in a bunch of other superheroes [TS]

  we end up having a brawl and like Batman [TS]

  and Superman have to come and bail them [TS]

  out the next day and I think again [TS]

  yes alternate reality Supergirl [TS]

  basically that's a gasket [TS]

  well woman not girl that was the [TS]

  difference really just she was tougher [TS]

  and meaner and stronger and that we had [TS]

  a fish out of water because she's not [TS]

  her own reality so the world is [TS]

  different the fish-out-of-water story [TS]

  but intrigues me the most about her is [TS]

  the engine is witness to manufacturer [TS]

  meeting right so I my pitch my last four [TS]

  pitches going to be 4i think i'm gonna [TS]

  say an animated film based on Brian [TS]

  Clevenger's atomic robo yeah who is a is [TS]

  a fantastic it is a robot similarly [TS]

  round picks [TS]

  yeah robot built by Nikola Tesla he's a [TS]

  piece [TS]

  he's sentient but a robot and he has all [TS]

  sorts of fun period sort of like when is [TS]

  it is it like post-world war two during [TS]

  World War Two and post world war two and [TS]

  he threw a lot of here through a lot of [TS]

  Arafat's that's true he gets it's [TS]

  unclear but it is so easy [TS]

  he's immortal essentially right so what [TS]

  I like about atomic robo and I was [TS]

  thinking that maybe the best way to do [TS]

  it is is animated is that he's got all [TS]

  sorts of adventures that he has so so [TS]

  it's a way that you don't need this to [TS]

  be a TV series like so many of the [TS]

  comics really should probably be adapted [TS]

  and you can just tell a fun adventure I [TS]

  would have him battling dr. dinosaur at [TS]

  some point because dr. dinosaur is great [TS]

  he's a talking dinosaur it travels in [TS]

  time [TS]

  the girl to the process is trying to [TS]

  kill all mammals it's great and I don't [TS]

  know what the exact plot is yet I didn't [TS]

  get that far but in terms of I'm just [TS]

  looking for properties right now and i [TS]

  think that the property I'm gonna I'm [TS]

  gonna say as atomic robo he's got he's [TS]

  got a team of action scientists who work [TS]

  with him [TS]

  they'll be a nice Ensemble will get will [TS]

  cast some well-known actors who will [TS]

  only have to come in for a few days to [TS]

  do their line readings because it's an [TS]

  animated animated feature but i think [TS]

  given how I how well i think big hero 6 [TS]

  turned out a yes an animated adaptation [TS]

  of a fun adventure comic would be a [TS]

  would be a blast and I think that atomic [TS]

  robo would be the property to do it [TS]

  because it is it is funny and has that [TS]

  has that kind of period charm about it [TS]

  that that makes me kind of the comic and [TS]

  i would love the love the the movie too [TS]

  so what I'm almost so on board for that [TS]

  yea it's going on right here to watch it [TS]

  i actually had another one I was gonna [TS]

  pick and then I realized that I couldn't [TS]

  pick it because I believe that it was [TS]

  going to be a movie and killed and is [TS]

  now going to be a TV series and so I [TS]

  just i'll leave it for my last round but [TS]

  atomic robo was right up there so yeah [TS]

  atomic robo I i recommend it and I hope [TS]

  that one day perhaps we will see an [TS]

  animated tompa alright that's two [TS]

  pitches down for everybody i think for [TS]

  with our remaining time what we'll do is [TS]

  go back to everybody and ask if they've [TS]

  got other things that they found out [TS]

  pitching and if you want to do a quick [TS]

  pitch of some of your other ideas that's [TS]

  fine but we'll just kind of move through [TS]

  quickly and get and clear the decks of [TS]

  any other ideas you might have John do [TS]

  you have any that you that you didn't [TS]

  mention oh sure since i did one of the [TS]

  great comics of the eighties all also do [TS]

  one of the great comics the nineties [TS]

  Peter bags hate i think given the fact [TS]

  that Generation Xers are now all in [TS]

  their forties and fifties there's a [TS]

  plenty of nostalogie out there for for [TS]

  this time and I thought that we could [TS]

  have buddy Bradley the slacker who comes [TS]

  from New Jersey moves to seattle during [TS]

  the middle of the grunge era could be [TS]

  played by Adam driver [TS]

  because uh you know he's it's basically [TS]

  the character he's playing on girls and [TS]

  as long as we got Adam driver we might [TS]

  as well have lisa donovan plays [TS]

  girlfriend Lisa leavenworth I the only [TS]

  thing I don't know who to play would be [TS]

  stinky but i guess i'll say Jack Gleeson [TS]

  from king of Thrones alright and this [TS]

  could be directed by either edgar wright [TS]

  or the sofia coppola essay to write [TS]

  fantastic that direction casting to [TS]

  that's really yeah all right anything [TS]

  else that you had that that was left on [TS]

  the cutting room floor oh I would just [TS]

  say I I purposefully didn't pitch any [TS]

  superhero comics because i'm not a huge [TS]

  fan of superheroes the trouble i always [TS]

  have a superhero's is there always about [TS]

  people whose only imagination what they [TS]

  can do with their superpowers is to [TS]

  punish after the fact and in a way as i [TS]

  was thinking about that I realized [TS]

  someone could make a really great [TS]

  twisted film out of the comics of [TS]

  fletcher Hanks of Stardust to the the [TS]

  the space wizard especially I will [TS]

  destroy a list of like planets guy you [TS]

  exactly [TS]

  David what else did you have okay I have [TS]

  so many but i'll go quick [TS]

  they just have names for the most part [TS]

  great i would love to adapt Francisco [TS]

  Franco vilas black beetle which is a a [TS]

  modern day but noone war pulp hero I [TS]

  mean he fits right into the forties i [TS]

  would love to do a good movie of the [TS]

  Spirit maybe with Artie hammer as the [TS]

  spirit but you know one when it was [TS]

  actually realize mirrors spirit i would [TS]

  love to fix the League of Extraordinary [TS]

  Gentlemen which is such a wonderful [TS]

  comic in a hour alone he doesn't want to [TS]

  hear from you [TS]

  yes that's true forget him I would love [TS]

  to see Jason Sudeikis as Plastic Man huh [TS]

  I think that would be relational we can [TS]

  do that we have the technology that we [TS]

  couldn't do that [TS]

  I have a basic not on my list to [TS]

  specifically kyle baker version of [TS]

  Plastic Man [TS]

  yeah I think post Deadpool plastic man [TS]

  could totally be made it would be great [TS]

  oh absolutely yeah I would love to take [TS]

  I mean again this started as books and [TS]

  then was adapted and it's been adapted [TS]

  into movies and various points and [TS]

  Darwin cook took the Richard stark books [TS]

  about Parker and he made the best [TS]

  adaptation of the Parker books [TS]

  none of the movies about Parker and most [TS]

  of them don't even call him Parker which [TS]

  kind of a problem and you know basically [TS]

  at point-blank comes close [TS]

  payback payback exists for James Coburn [TS]

  to go [TS]

  that's mean that's just mean that's [TS]

  about it so I'd love to take the Darwin [TS]

  cook Parker books and just use those as [TS]

  storyboards because he nailed it i would [TS]

  love to take the the shadow and Doc [TS]

  Savage and all the street and Smith [TS]

  characters and there is a cinematic [TS]

  universe waiting to happen in movies [TS]

  that did not work [TS]

  yeah that again i would love to fix that [TS]

  poor shadow [TS]

  oh my god there's a Dark Horse comic [TS]

  called the department H or depth which [TS]

  is a murder mystery under the water with [TS]

  you know interesting things going on [TS]

  there that would make a really good [TS]

  movie i think if I were working in [TS]

  television i would i would talk about [TS]

  Astro City turn into a TV right doing TV [TS]

  and that's not a movie for sure ya can [TS]

  write it would not you know there's so [TS]

  much there [TS]

  oh and i want to see oscar isaac is [TS]

  Parker I must forgot that part [TS]

  and finally i would love to see the [TS]

  thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and [TS]

  Babbage by Sydney padua oh my god that [TS]

  would make such a fun movie and [TS]

  educational but mostly fun all right [TS]

  Monty well everybody talks about how [TS]

  great Calvin and Hobbes was and they're [TS]

  not wrong but there's another great [TS]

  comic strip that ended in 1995 because [TS]

  the Creator got tired of it and the far [TS]

  side i think is the best looking one [TS]

  panel weird situation gag strips ever [TS]

  absolutely now the movie's gonna be [TS]

  tricky [TS]

  uh-huh because they did that Don Martin [TS]

  movie and that worked out yeah right [TS]

  there and pump fails from the far side [TS]

  and anyway feels like all of the [TS]

  firesides take place in kind of the same [TS]

  universe where all the cows were fifties [TS]

  fashion eyeglasses and also there are [TS]

  you a man or something and midvale [TS]

  school for the gifted you know just the [TS]

  far side was so good to be a movie going [TS]

  in completely the other direction I'm [TS]

  going to have to ignore the rules of [TS]

  legality here the current music George [TS]

  Perez jala / Avengers featuring every [TS]

  single comic book character it's a comic [TS]

  book and when Disney buys Warner [TS]

  Brothers it was fine before well they're [TS]

  also you have to get back the mutants [TS]

  and like man thing is going to happen or [TS]

  what I like about that idea is that in [TS]

  the book the DC heroes go to the marvel [TS]

  universe and say you everything so dirty [TS]

  and gritty here they must be terrible [TS]

  heroes marvel heroes go to the DC [TS]

  Universe and say hello everything so [TS]

  shiny and clean these guys must be [TS]

  authoritarian fascist so that's the [TS]

  first step to fight letting the movie [TS]

  universes that would go the opposite way [TS]

  we're looking people would go to the DC [TS]

  Universe ago [TS]

  do they have superheroes here are they [TS]

  doing with their time imagining the [TS]

  Batman ironman face off now [TS]

  no there's a webcomic think would that [TS]

  has just gone away again but in 2006 [TS]

  generate wealth 2006 is when it started [TS]

  the great outdoor fight storyline was [TS]

  amazing i'm not sure how well would work [TS]

  as a movie if the protagonist were still [TS]

  cats but the premise of three days three [TS]

  acres 3,000 men fighting down until [TS]

  there's one person left i would go [TS]

  animated with the exact same art style [TS]

  and it would be it would be an [TS]

  unparalleled success because it's so [TS]

  different told I'd watch that [TS]

  yeah me too a thousand times a day i got [TS]

  like three more I want a new little nemo [TS]

  movie or dream of their big fiend is [TS]

  there which I can't tell the difference [TS]

  yeah I think disney should make a movie [TS]

  starring mickey mouse because it's weird [TS]

  that the closest they have to mickey [TS]

  mouse being a movie is Fantasia [TS]

  specifically I'd go with the floyd get [TS]

  fordson comic strips maybe go to 1930s [TS]

  with that run where he tries to commit [TS]

  suicide for an entire week maybe not [TS]

  Mickey Mouse in the comic strips is way [TS]

  more interesting that I ever gave him [TS]

  credit for it and seeing his shorts so I [TS]

  think that food version of Mickey Mouse [TS]

  could be a good movie and finally I know [TS]

  they're making a bird-of-prey movie with [TS]

  this new harley quinn thing I want a [TS]

  good birds of prey movie [TS]

  yes such a good birds of prey movie so [TS]

  it's not my official recommends maybe [TS]

  this movie they're making will be it [TS]

  mm I wouldn't hold my breath if it isn't [TS]

  could we try again in two lovebirds of [TS]

  frame let's just get started in advance [TS]

  on on the reboot of the movie that has [TS]

  been yet why not i'll let them put black [TS]

  canary in the fishnets a leather jacket [TS]

  but she can still beat people up in that [TS]

  I mean the power girls got the transom [TS]

  she can certainly that's different [TS]

  that's what I got [TS]

  alright great voice s what do you have [TS]

  left over [TS]

  well I'll start on the superhero side of [TS]

  things because there isn't actually that [TS]

  much on that side when when it comes [TS]

  down to it i would love to see I you [TS]

  could flip a coin [TS]

  honestly either the power pack or next [TS]

  wave agents of hate for Marvel where [TS]

  Marvel just take some characters that [TS]

  they don't have to build up to a team [TS]

  movie and just do the team movie and [TS]

  just let the team dynamic work since [TS]

  they don't have access to the Fantastic [TS]

  Four and the x-men and all that kind of [TS]

  stuff do something with with with a [TS]

  couple of properties that they [TS]

  absolutely own free and clear and can do [TS]

  some neat stuff with and i should also [TS]

  mention that a few of these other things [TS]

  on my list at friends of mine would [TS]

  would receive royalties for so there's I [TS]

  guess my statement of full disclosure [TS]

  and so on and so forth and i say that [TS]

  because my next one is Howard the Duck [TS]

  it's it's been long enough it's been [TS]

  long enough we can do a decent howard [TS]

  the duck movie a comic book that outsold [TS]

  amazing spider-man at the peak of its [TS]

  popularity can absolutely sustain an [TS]

  entertaining movie when we've had seven [TS]

  spider-man movie [TS]

  is that have had a you you could say [TS]

  mixed bag level of success and that [TS]

  would be generous [TS]

  howard the duck is something that they [TS]

  can live alongside the Marvel connected [TS]

  universe and the giant cereal that [TS]

  they've been doing without having to [TS]

  touch any of that stuff he's and [TS]

  guardians of the galaxy [TS]

  yes in guardians of the galaxy but he [TS]

  has nothing but a a just kind of side [TS]

  story relation to things he's not gonna [TS]

  show up in infinity war and be the one [TS]

  to put on the Infinity Gauntlet and [TS]

  punched a nose in the face that's not [TS]

  gonna happen but let him do the kind of [TS]

  social commentary and ride humor that [TS]

  the comic book was so well known for and [TS]

  so beloved for that despite the terrible [TS]

  Lucasfilm movie is the reason that [TS]

  people have persisted in love Howard the [TS]

  Duck over the last 40 years [TS]

  also on the superhero side of things [TS]

  uh I mentioned connected universe I've [TS]

  got a connected universe that is is more [TS]

  tightly knit that on the comic side of [TS]

  things has been shocking me with with [TS]

  how well it's been doing in in in really [TS]

  doing superhero comics in a way that [TS]

  doesn't require me to read $45 single [TS]

  issues a month and that is the entire [TS]

  valiant connected university I to start [TS]

  off with [TS]

  I guess you would say XO Manowar would [TS]

  be your starting point they're in the [TS]

  process of actively developing all that [TS]

  stuff yeah movies or TV shows that kind [TS]

  of thing but they are really I i don't [TS]

  mean this to come off as like you know [TS]

  dead as some sort of underhanded [TS]

  compliment but I did not expect ninj ack [TS]

  james bond and also inja to be one of [TS]

  the best most entertaining superhero [TS]

  comics being written on the stands today [TS]

  but it absolutely is [TS]

  they have characters that in the [TS]

  nineties uh original era of valiance [TS]

  were in many ways consider to be oh [TS]

  that's kind of like the x-men but with a [TS]

  weird megalomaniacal Professor X that's [TS]

  still kind of the case but they take [TS]

  those bones and they have reengineered [TS]

  this amazing genetic mutation of really [TS]

  brilliant storytelling around all that [TS]

  in general I think I think valiant does [TS]

  not get its do in the modern superhero [TS]

  age now jumping completely away from [TS]

  superheroes there is a series from the [TS]

  nineties that is deeply beloved that [TS]

  people have tried to develop I I think [TS]

  predominantly for movies i think the [TS]

  Creator is now may be interested in TV [TS]

  just whatever from you know somebody who [TS]

  really gets the material and would do it [TS]

  well and it was a mega-success one of [TS]

  the most successful really true [TS]

  independent comics strangers in paradise [TS]

  with you last as a as a as a as a [TS]

  romance comic that deliberately miscast [TS]

  it's leads in a way you've got to you've [TS]

  got a love triangle of two girls in a [TS]

  guy and it and it was not the kind of [TS]

  narrative that you expected then or even [TS]

  i would say arguably now in terms of [TS]

  something that was as popular as it was [TS]

  I deeply deeply beloved a series written [TS]

  drawn and letter to by hand by texas is [TS]

  own Terry Moore also that goes for his [TS]

  follow-up series echo which i think [TS]

  would be great as its own single [TS]

  standalone movie strangers in paradise i [TS]

  think you could probably easily get two [TS]

  maybe three movies out of because [TS]

  there's a lot of meat there it depends [TS]

  on where you stop it yeah yeah it [TS]

  depends on where you stop it's something [TS]

  that it could do the TV side of things [TS]

  and so I kind of resisted putting it on [TS]

  my list at first because of that but i [TS]

  think that it is so extremely cinematic [TS]

  in terms of the the way that it grew and [TS]

  he composed from the beginning I feel [TS]

  like it would lend itself rather nicely [TS]

  a few other uh one-offs you know again [TS]

  full disclosure we're all friends of [TS]

  anthony johnson we all loved Anthony [TS]

  Johnson who has a show called unjustly [TS]

  maligned right here on this very never [TS]

  yeah let's give him and movie commando [TS]

  movie he could possibly he needs to be [TS]

  alright Justin [TS]

  two movies are friends all need movie [TS]

  and I have a mutual love of some of some [TS]

  fantasy movies from the eighties dark [TS]

  crystal being one of them that [TS]

  influenced a comic of his that is very [TS]

  much its own thing it is not pass [TS]

  station is not Antony just doing his [TS]

  version of one of these properties and [TS]

  it is a book called umbral yeah a [TS]

  fantasy book with weird creepy things [TS]

  that go bump in the night [TS]

  it is really exceptional I wish it had [TS]

  gone beyond two volumes to this point [TS]

  he's not opposed to continuing and he [TS]

  has a lot more story to tell and would [TS]

  love to talk more story i would love for [TS]

  him to be able to tell that more story [TS]

  by seeing get optioned for a a really [TS]

  cool really awesome fantasy fantasy film [TS]

  series because they're there is there's [TS]

  so much material there other really [TS]

  great current indie comics another image [TS]

  book velvet what is the James Bond spy [TS]

  organization [TS]

  what if the secretary what if Miss [TS]

  Moneypenny were really the radically [TS]

  most competent spy in the building and [TS]

  something went amiss and she had to [TS]

  solve everything and fix everything [TS]

  it is some of the best work that Edward [TS]

  Baker steve epting and Elizabeth Wright [TS]

  wiser have done together and those three [TS]

  have worked on legendary issues of [TS]

  Captain America [TS]

  Captain America [TS]

  so that's saying something fantastic spy [TS]

  series that I I hope it's already in [TS]

  development somewhere couple others [TS]

  Caillou max from only press I written [TS]

  and drawn by Xander cannon he's been [TS]

  releasing it as seasons season 1 season [TS]

  2 but they work just as well as as as [TS]

  effectively being graphic novel length [TS]

  storyboards for feature films [TS]

  what if there were a supermax prison for [TS]

  kaiju giant monsters just that's all the [TS]

  what if you need you should already be [TS]

  going out to buy this ten dollar trade [TS]

  of the first volume of it is I don't [TS]

  think is almost done now to others are [TS]

  legendary black hole by Charles burns [TS]

  another pretty simple bitch I what if a [TS]

  sexually transmitted disease caused [TS]

  super grow test mutations in a bunch of [TS]

  teenagers I i would say that the the [TS]

  recent horror movie it follows uh was [TS]

  was potentially inspired a little bit [TS]

  bye-bye where this comic goes about it [TS]

  is it is one of those great black and [TS]

  white comics really masterworks of the [TS]

  last 20-30 years I lose track of what [TS]

  you're wearing and what your came out [TS]

  and i think the only one I've got left [TS]

  uh to actually Mike Richardson the [TS]

  publisher of dark horse comics teamed up [TS]

  with stan sakai to do an adaptation of [TS]

  the 47 ronin and we really have not seen [TS]

  a great adaptation of that legendary [TS]

  japanese a story cinematically certainly [TS]

  the weird train wreck thing that keanu [TS]

  reeves involved in in live-action at [TS]

  Universal didn't go so well I think it [TS]

  would be phenomenal to see it animated [TS]

  it would also work in live-action if it [TS]

  were just strictly straight-up adapted [TS]

  that way with the a list of japanese [TS]

  film actors that are out there and then [TS]

  my my last one is a really compelling [TS]

  finite series by scott snyder and sean [TS]

  Murphy for the vertical label called the [TS]

  wake they're terrible things in the deep [TS]

  and I there is an unexpected i jump [TS]

  I won't say in what respect but they're [TS]

  there is a jump somewhere else [TS]

  I right smack-dab in the middle of the [TS]

  series that i did not see coming and [TS]

  that you don't really expect to see [TS]

  coming unless you have a spoiled for you [TS]

  that I think would work particularly [TS]

  well either as the midpoint in a single [TS]

  film or as the cliffhanger to a2 a2 a [TS]

  two-part adaptation of it and regardless [TS]

  i highly recommend it go go seek it out [TS]

  go go by the comic versions of [TS]

  everything that I've said and and don't [TS]

  get spoiled on that [TS]

  yeah yeah oh god I'm sorry i I'm really [TS]

  really sorry Jason I do have one more [TS]

  that is a non-connected um I know let's [TS]

  go ahead in fact that it's my turn again [TS]

  the diaspora of 2000ad rogue trooper [TS]

  strontium dog robust ters slain the [TS]

  ballot of halo Jones there there is this [TS]

  rich treasure trove of British comics [TS]

  that have been made see realized weekly [TS]

  since 1977 that that is is at once I [TS]

  guess you would say Cinematic Universe [TS]

  but the stories don't have this [TS]

  crisscrossing cross in crossover nature [TS]

  to them so if anything it would be a [TS]

  brand of of cinematic treasures that you [TS]

  don't have to watch all of you can just [TS]

  go watch the crazy barbarian fantasy or [TS]

  you can watch the robot you know death [TS]

  spree thing or you can watch the you [TS]

  know near future mercenary private [TS]

  military corporation hard sci-fi thing [TS]

  all right Lisa what do you have left [TS]

  alright this is lighting around a soda [TS]

  first up [TS]

  yes one of my favorite 12 issue series [TS]

  in the last 20 years has been by [TS]

  brandwood and ryan kelly its local it's [TS]

  a comic about a young woman making [TS]

  makinen and over the course of every [TS]

  issue she bounces through different [TS]

  cities in the US and has sorted has a [TS]

  sort of counters that gradually not [TS]

  from being kind of a realist vagabond of [TS]

  22 to a woman who finally settles down [TS]

  in her late twenties early thirties icle [TS]

  shaukat playing her and yeah it's and [TS]

  it's an episode in the the book is [TS]

  episodic and the movie could just be a [TS]

  string of episodes too so you could [TS]

  either do it as an apology or you can [TS]

  just system to the dude who directs [TS]

  drunk history drug could do them all [TS]

  because honestly had some of the best [TS]

  directorial work I've see he on TV and i [TS]

  think that i think the episodic nature [TS]

  would carry over really well so local by [TS]

  brand when Ryan Kelly it's a lovely soft [TS]

  contains story it's um and I think it's [TS]

  something that would hit with a lot of [TS]

  people who do take all of which when [TS]

  used to try to figure out you know how [TS]

  how much of who i am as a result of my [TS]

  experiences and how many of my [TS]

  experiences have been a result of me [TS]

  trying to figure out who i am and when [TS]

  they finally entangle it and find some [TS]

  measure piece of that question the the [TS]

  movie and it's very lovely the second [TS]

  quick and i have is a comic book series [TS]

  that when I read it I was like holy crap [TS]

  this is kinda like dead wood cross with [TS]

  the wire and dragged into 21st century [TS]

  and it's scalped by jason aaron and [TS]

  armed with new era and it takes place on [TS]

  Uggla Lakota reservation inset in South [TS]

  Dakota and the hero of the the titular [TS]

  hero he's really an antihero I'm [TS]

  national bad horse works for the FBI he [TS]

  has to go back to the rez and go [TS]

  undercover because they're there are [TS]

  many bad doings anyway it's um a deeply [TS]

  knew our series and there is no small [TS]

  amount of mysticism in it and i think it [TS]

  would make a really elegant little an [TS]

  elegant and and mean little more and [TS]

  it's a group of characters that you [TS]

  don't often see in these kind of movies [TS]

  are doing the kind of social pressures [TS]

  that again aren't really common to the [TS]

  rest of the American more genre so i [TS]

  would like to see scalped if we were [TS]

  making Scouts 20 years ago Adam beach [TS]

  would obviously be the dude cast for it [TS]

  but now I would actually cast him as as [TS]

  the ostensible bill is the essential [TS]

  villain on red crow my third one [TS]

  one of my favorite series is the [TS]

  transcendently stupid god hates [TS]

  astronauts by Ryan Braun it is it is [TS]

  transcendently stupid you know [TS]

  stereo so delightfully ass and I like it [TS]

  round a corner comes back again to sort [TS]

  of demented brilliance is just so [TS]

  gleefully witless leave ogre and [TS]

  exuberantly dumb and i love it [TS]

  Lisa Lisa can I can I can I share your [TS]

  lover for just a moment just to throw it [TS]

  out to those of you who have not read [TS]

  this yet there's a character named [TS]

  Prince tiger eating a cheeseburger and [TS]

  that is yet actual legal full name and [TS]

  because he is indeed attacker he's a [TS]

  cheeseburger [TS]

  yeah actually a prince yeah the use of [TS]

  rescue tired and he is permanently [TS]

  eating a cheeseburger always always [TS]

  eating a cheeseburger this this book is [TS]

  is just Ryan Braun defined whole new [TS]

  genres of stupid and then was like no [TS]

  this is not my masterwork I have to keep [TS]

  going and have like a beautiful mind [TS]

  moment and kept going it was delightful [TS]

  we need to make sure that everybody on [TS]

  here understands that NASA is behind [TS]

  everything because if they don't the [TS]

  NASA NASA is going to sit there hit [TS]

  squads and kill them all [TS]

  yeah it's there's a lot going on there's [TS]

  a rhinoceros of the pen protect with a [TS]

  pocket protector there they're born [TS]

  again farmers sending cows into space [TS]

  anyway long story short someone needs to [TS]

  toss this into the lap of Seth Rogen and [TS]

  his friends because i'm pretty sure [TS]

  they're the only ones who'll [TS]

  sensibilities could do it justice [TS]

  don't worry that they would get to stone [TS]

  to do it right now James Franco is [TS]

  obviously going to be by fucker by crook [TS]

  Jonah Hill will play Prince tiger eating [TS]

  a cheeseburger and I've got it all [TS]

  worked out in my head so moving on to [TS]

  the next one we've already talked about [TS]

  Brian Clevenger's working directly [TS]

  because he's responsible for atomic robo [TS]

  which Jason pitched which was on my [TS]

  quick hits list but he was also [TS]

  responsible for revamping the Infinity [TS]

  Gauntlet saga for marvel comics and it [TS]

  is hilarious [TS]

  um the doctor Jim character alone had be [TS]

  like stuffing my map my system announced [TS]

  to keep from waking up my husband [TS]

  because I made the mistake of reading in [TS]

  bed one night and I think it would be [TS]

  just a great little um I'm not sure if I [TS]

  want to tie it into the rest of the MC [TS]

  or just leave it out there is a weird [TS]

  little gem on its own but that movie [TS]

  needs to be made because it's really [TS]

  funny and feature Spider Man and Doctor [TS]

  Doom and Hawkeye which weirdly enough [TS]

  and thousands and it's it's bananas and [TS]

  then my final ones on while I will [TS]

  contend that Runaways would make a [TS]

  better netflix series the same way that [TS]

  I contend that that squirrel girl should [TS]

  be a netflix series i still don't know I [TS]

  still think the first story arc in ways [TS]

  which ends with them battling the gear [TS]

  room and taking back the planet from the [TS]

  unearthly packed with your parents and [TS]

  made I think if you end it with that [TS]

  storyline that would make a good and [TS]

  reasonably dark team and dark and funny [TS]

  teen movie and I wouldn't mind seeing [TS]

  that and then finally i have not even [TS]

  begun to touch the treasure trove of [TS]

  gail simone stuff including the book [TS]

  leaving megalopolis which is about what [TS]

  happens when superheroes go crazy and [TS]

  become super villains and begin killing [TS]

  everybody and have you escaped the [TS]

  metropolis we're literally everybody can [TS]

  track you down and kill you anytime they [TS]

  want for fun but what I'm also thinking [TS]

  is that if the DC if someone prices you [TS]

  know this DC universe is a hot mess our [TS]

  are birds of prey book is just our moves [TS]

  a hot disaster and we're doing that [TS]

  because those people in the podcast said [TS]

  we needed 20 what we do we do for the [TS]

  document in time someone I know we will [TS]

  take a look at the secret six more [TS]

  specifically the book that ran from [TS]

  about 2002-2012 right after the DC [TS]

  infinity crisis the secret six will be [TS]

  fantastic it has amazon some other [TS]

  planets and it has a total weirdo is a [TS]

  contortionist who dresses up his monkeys [TS]

  like his coworkers and it will be a [TS]

  weird funny snappy ensemble it's it will [TS]

  be everything that the stupid Suicide [TS]

  Squad movie should have been but got [TS]

  bogged down by the DC sensibility that [TS]

  this is bright and perverse and I want [TS]

  it anyway those are mine those are my [TS]

  lightning rounds and my list a lot of [TS]

  these are very much uh the well what's [TS]

  been said before is really it needs to [TS]

  be done on as a TV series so many [TS]

  stories really could be done that way i [TS]

  would contend and there are issues with [TS]

  the the coherency of the Cinematic [TS]

  Universe but I we contend that perhaps [TS]

  the best way to tell to adapt bad [TS]

  fractions Hawkeye is in a film and it [TS]

  just can't have jeremy renner in it is [TS]

  the problem there and that is a problem [TS]

  Oh No what'll we do good ultimate [TS]

  Hawkeye but the problem is they've stuck [TS]

  many universes got no ultimate [TS]

  sensibility yeah they got it they got to [TS]

  make a break from the MCU to do that [TS]

  he's fine a movie where he can be the [TS]

  sixth most interesting hours exactly [TS]

  right but he needs to be more than this [TS]

  Hawkeye needs to be more and more sad [TS]

  sack club then I think render can do my [TS]

  I would like i did put some marble ones [TS]

  on here all I try to refrain from that I [TS]

  I think maybe a although this would I [TS]

  guess be done by Columbia but now they [TS]

  work with Marvel I don't know that one [TS]

  point they were talking about doing a [TS]

  venom movie and I find venom as a [TS]

  villain uninteresting but i find the [TS]

  venom that is Flash Thompson who is a [TS]

  wounded vet who has lost his legs in [TS]

  combat and but he can gone the symbiotic [TS]

  Venom symbiote thingy and become a [TS]

  superhero and he goes into space and [TS]

  stuff i think that's an interesting [TS]

  story that might be a spin on that [TS]

  character that would be cool especially [TS]

  when you've got a wounded veteran who [TS]

  becomes a superhero I think that's a fun [TS]

  twist on that jim Starlin is classic [TS]

  independent sci fi / superhero / I don't [TS]

  even know it's every genre at all once [TS]

  dread star I think might make a good [TS]

  movie it's all it would probably be a [TS]

  lot like guardians of the galaxy [TS]

  although probably less do dish little [TS]

  less broey then guardians of the galaxy [TS]

  but similar in that you've got a you've [TS]

  got a cyborg preacher and you've got a [TS]

  cat pilot and you've got this guy [TS]

  wearing kind of a purple Jedi robe who's [TS]

  got a magic sword [TS]

  there's something like Megaforce with a [TS]

  budget there's magic and there's magic [TS]

  and aliens and a battle between kind of [TS]

  a theocracy and rebellion [TS]

  it's a lot of fun dread star and I think [TS]

  that might make a good movie out of [TS]

  those core parts some a bunch of things [TS]

  that I think maybe locking key which i [TS]

  was going to be developed a TV show and [TS]

  then turned into a movie to deal that [TS]

  died and now is going to be helped the [TS]

  TV show again TV is probably the right [TS]

  format for that although i can imagine [TS]

  it as a series of films the problem with [TS]

  series of films is that they [TS]

  take one it doesn't do that well and [TS]

  they never make any more but as a horror [TS]

  / action you know kind of magic vehicle [TS]

  about key house and the magic keys that [TS]

  do different things i think that would [TS]

  be a really cool i keep imagining almost [TS]

  kind of like I said almost a harry [TS]

  potter is touch to it but but not quite [TS]

  as family-friendly i'm a sucker for kids [TS]

  superheroes and I would like I'm tired [TS]

  of spider-man's my favorite like comic [TS]

  book character but I am so overseeing [TS]

  spider-man's origin or or uh let's see [TS]

  who else Batman's origin or any of these [TS]

  hero origins we've seen a million times [TS]

  before but I and a nice kids superhero [TS]

  movie would be a lot of fun so my two [TS]

  suggestions there are four either marvel [TS]

  to do a ms marvel movie that is based on [TS]

  Willow Wilson's current ms marvel which [TS]

  is come on or a DC movie about the Blue [TS]

  Beetle with Jaime Reyes the Blue Beetle [TS]

  because those are both kids who are not [TS]

  what we usually see in superheroes [TS]

  because they are both people of color [TS]

  and they are kids who get powers and [TS]

  have to deal with it in high races case [TS]

  he gets like a beetle thing stuck on his [TS]

  neck and now he's got the armor and [TS]

  that's a fun character and and ms marvel [TS]

  similarly she gets a exposed to the [TS]

  Terrigen mists and she's got also too [TS]

  wacky powers i love how they are both of [TS]

  those characters have to balance their [TS]

  family and being students and being kids [TS]

  with the responsibility that comes with [TS]

  having powers without telling me about [TS]

  Uncle Ben dying again because i don't [TS]

  want to see it again enough he want a [TS]

  few more really quick dance lots recent [TS]

  take on the silver surfer uh I think [TS]

  would make a hilarious movie with with [TS]

  his girlfriend dawn writer who on the [TS]

  board that would be so fun you can I [TS]

  think the alan moore again sorry Alan [TS]

  Moore but the allen war swamp found [TS]

  don't apologize to him he cashes all the [TS]

  china-us one thing series with that the [TS]

  anatomy lesson all of that that classic [TS]

  there's one thing story i would love to [TS]

  see is a movie [TS]

  quite honestly I think that would be [TS]

  super creepy and great and finally [TS]

  because my assessment [TS]

  it and assumed that someone was going to [TS]

  pick it but nobody's mentioned it yet [TS]

  Noelle Stevenson dimona would be a great [TS]

  movie probably animated but i don't care [TS]

  i want to see Aloysius golden loin on [TS]

  the big screen where he belongs [TS]

  along with shape-shifting Ramona I was [TS]

  pretty firing 28 Noelle Stevenson [TS]

  lumberjanes pitch before I had the sense [TS]

  to look it up and of course that's [TS]

  already going to be a move already [TS]

  yeah yeah so that's it we have we have [TS]

  done a lot of good work here i think the [TS]

  future of comic book movies is solved [TS]

  thanks to us and hooray for iced it just [TS]

  send the checks to being comfortable [TS]
