The first big question. Is the new Godzilla movie from Toho? I really think that Godzilla would trump a reboot of Robo-cop any day. Another big question is, which Flash are they going to use? Why are they keeping any Wonder Woman project under such tight wraps? Why am I asking so many un-answerable questions?!?

No, the new Godzilla is being produced by Legendary Pictures Inc. (Toho is taking a break from Godzilla movies)

Talking about movies is fun... But how about recapping the other stuff? Like the TV shows and video game?

The most important part of Robocop to me is the voice. You can't see most of his face so the voice becomes more important. I doubt the new Robocop can have a better voice than the old one.

At least you can tell that Godzillas tail looks good.

"Why am i asking you all this?..."

Anyway, that RoboCop will fail badly but it the design should have told us all we needed to know, they've taken the concept and made it look devoid of what made the first 2 movies tick, It looks like a bad Power Ranger. And i bet all the satire will be goe to.

It's that Stupid PG-13 rating, Robocop isn't for kids just the well adjusted ones.

Avengers vs terminator... if terminator existed in a world where there's adamantium and it's possible to build Iron Man.

Also, the buzz about Man of Steel, everyone I've seen talking about it (on and off the internet) except for critics loved it. I'm someone who hates what Superman did at the very end but everything else about the movie was great. You can't condemn a movie for a twenty second scene. And I didn't find it as dark as most of the films critics make it out to be, I just didn't think Joss Whedon was in charge.

Ew, that new Robocop suit looks awful IMO. Like they blended together some spare Batman costumes from Nolan's movies with the helmet from Daft Punk's Guy-Manuel.

Also, PG-13? Seriously?

Nothing about X-Men Days of Future Past? I have to keep reminding myself to have reasonable expectations for that movie but I'm just so excited.

I've genuinely never understood Wonder Woman's role as one of the big three other than to be the token girl. Her whole backstory is borderline (more directly) sexist albeit against males, her "lasso of truth" and bullet proof bracelets and the invisible plane have all struck me as particularly silly. Her powers have also WILDLY varied over time so that I'm not really sure what her current powers are, even with the help of wikipedia. DC is one of the best examples of a universe with poor female characters, most of whom are just copies of already existing male heroes. I'm not sure who I'd place in that top teir position though, and maybe that's why DC is stuck with one of the only unique female heroines to stick the test of time (name recognition) who also has comparable powers to the a-listers. The same goes for non-white heroes where they can't be bothered to make a new hero so much as just slap the same white hero's costume on them and give them a different name. Shame on them.

So yeah, I can see Flash getting there first (teehee). Here's to hoping that DC gets their act together. I mean, I can maybe see Power Girl but she's literally a female kryptonian. At least they didn't call her Supergirl/Superwoman and slap on the same costume (this time). Zatanna? I don't know, they've really done themselves a dis-service by making wonder woman one of the only viable distinct female heroes. Compare to Marvel who has at least a few legitimate options they can put in there who are unique and sometimes quite powerful (Invisible Woman, Jean Grey/Pheonix, Jubilee(joking), Storm, and a few more. There aren't many, female characters have trouble selling comics so they have trouble existing. But DC is really far behind here.

Robocop is a PG13?

Fuck that then. Here's hoping the 'Dredd Sequel' fan movement carries on picking up steam.

Also,

ULTRON I NEED NEW PANTS.

Edit: Fair play Bob for not launching into a social-justice thing about Wonder Woman not having a confirmed movie presence yet. Must have been difficult. Maybe they just got a working Flash script out the door before trying to make Wonder Woman work? Again?

If were going to be explaining Ultron, then its more like: Braniac with smaller aspirations, an unbreakable shell, and the ability to mass produce copies of itself

*Edit: Funny how its robo-cop that looks like its going to suck, and a robo villian is whats getting positive feedback

They didn't say permanently. Don't know if it's newsworthy or just a preview hook for one show. It'd have to be meg or chris if permanently.

Not only that, but killed off doesn't mean they won't become death or something.

How can you pre judge something you did not even see the trailer for it?! Remember Casino Royale? Remember how a lot of fans said it was going to suck? How throwing the gadgets away for a more realistic James Bond was ridiculous? It worked back then. I hate this aspect about some people. It is terrible because I know it will be. WTF?! How do you know that? Now you are a content provider too Bob. You would feel pretty bad if people told your next book sucks before you even releasing it.

That's nice. The most important part of Robocop to everyone else is the extreme bloody violence. This movie is going to bomb, hard.

It can be good and it will still bomb. People that would watch it for the nostalgia kick like me and Bob now won't(unless you pay us) because it's a kids movie. And the day of kids thinking something like Robocop isn't just cheesy and archaic crap is dead. This film doesn't have a target audience. It's fucked, I guarantee it.

Thank Drokk for Dredd.

I don't know how a Legend Of Zelda Movie would even work if everyone who wants to see it expects Link to be quiet. If it weren't for that we'd probably have a LoZ movie by now. We may even get Everquest & The Elder Scrolls movies before a LoZ movie since Link must be quiet.

As for another P-13 Robocop.... Yeesh.... I'm skipping. The only good Robocop movies were rated R.
