Saw the teaser of next episode, and I have confused emotions. I love Mirror Master, the mirror tricks are just what I expected but I really don't like that he wears just a business suit like in the old show. Mirror Master has a cool costume in the comics, I would have loved to see their version of it. Maybe some day.

As in the snake. Cottonmouth or water moccasin aka viper. And he hates being called that. References in the show
how his mouth looked after someone kicked his teeth in. And then theres Diamondback as in rattlesnake. S+~~load of snakes there.
And now I finished the series.
I think I like this better than Daredevil season 2, maybe even more than season 1. Kinda tied with Jessica, but these shows are so different in specific tone and aesthetic that it makes difficult to compare them. Michael Coltier is great as Luke but Misty Knight was the one who stole the show for me. Glad to hear that she returns in Iron Fist. Villains were...interesting. All the actors were amazing and the sheer amount of power Alfre Woodard brought to her performance in parts was amazing. And I have nothing but love for Erik LaRay Harvey since he first scared the crap out of me in Boardwalk Empire, but I'm not a fan of the whole "Daddy loved you more than me" motive for Diamondback that is understandable and very primal as motives go. It's just kinda boring. And seems to be a pattern for netflix villains: their daddies did not like them very much. Still, the ending rumble was fun to see and I really like moments in superhero tv-shows/movies were people are actually cheering for the hero. It's actually kinda rare at times.
Four episodes in right now. Reaally liking this. I think I prefer this over Daredevil. Luke is compelling and fun, there are good twists in story and I respect that the show makes me care what happens to even most minor characters. Really managed to make the whole city come alive. Cottonmouth is fun villain but he still feels bit weak next to Kingpin and Kilgrave.
I ran years ago campaign based on modules that started in Nirmathas via Price of Immortality-series. I made one adventure of my own that happened in Kassen as well. After that they roamed inner sea all over until they took part in the Ruby Phoenix Tournament. It was fun romp until life and other games waylaid it. I had plans to end it with three hardcore modules: Tomb of Iron Medusa, Moonscar and The Witchwar Legacy.
In another more recent module campaign I ran I returned to Nirmathas because dammit I like that place. And because it was basically with the same players I knew there was some meta-level attachment to it. I ran the Flight of the Red Raven in there instead of Galt.
I have plans of running the Fangwood Keep at some point, maybe as some sort of thematic preview for the campaign.
I have at this point ran almost every module up to Dragon's Demand.
Giant bat bites my half-orc warpriest and flies off with her in it's maw. Ranger tries to shoot it down, fails. Bat flies 100 feet high, while the half-orc tries her best to make the bloody thing land. Ranger shoots again, this time critting and killing the thing...and bat plummets down with half-orc safely nested in it's mouth.
GM: Okay, what do you guys do when you see this?
Ranger: I salute it. *Raises hand to brow.*
I don't know. Good for Manganiello, he is a talent that deserves a big role in movies. I mainly object on Deathstroke. I mean, he is not even really a Batman villain. Teen Titans and Nightwing are more of his ouvre. What he has in common with Batman that makes him a compelling villain except maybe in close combat? Someone hires him to kill Bats-yay?
I sound so negative. I'm usually very open to new ideas and characters being used but I really don't like Deathstroke as a Batman villain. I was hoping for something bit more out-there as a main villain. Riddler, Ventriloquist, Man-Bat or something like that.
Again, great idea if true. Would explain the possible overrun even more if their commanders and officers know the practises of both nations armies.
I loved the Batman and Flash cameos.
Both cameos where to my one of the highlights of the movie. Small things sure, but they felt like the characters they were supposed to be. Flash with his jokeful additude and self-confident demeanor felt jsut right. And this time Batman felt like...well, Batman. Way that scene played out was just the right tone of Batman for me. Dark, sure but he is not psychopat.
"I don't want to this in front of the girl." There's compassion there, something I don't think BvS showed enough (or at all.)

I...I'm quite on the different team on that. Arrow's Boomerang was boring as hell. He was just some guy who happened to throw boomerangs and had a vendetta against one of the characters. Only thing different about him was that he threw boomerangs. SS's Boomerang was a bank robber (who robbed every bank in Australia at least once, loved that line), a backstabber, a+!!@*& who threws his teammates under a bus and clearly a coward as well. I think he had a clear personality and we the audience knew what kind of man he was.
True, Arrow's Boomer had more stuff to do but he was the main villain and the focus character of that episode, but what was he like, what kind of man he was except vengeful-these questions were left unanswered in my opinion.
I'm also on the side of Mr. Mxyzptlk for this. Makes more sense, since Hartley is not really that....whimsical and he is kinda on the same level with Meister. Imp from the 5th dimension I could imagine doing that AND that's one way to use very classic Superman villain that DCEU will not use.
(oh, and I think that the New 52 version would be the way to go, at least design-wise.)

Destroyer, as in Destroyer armor from Thor I believe?
Boomerang has been one of the mainstay characters of the Squad through most of it's incarnations. He was in the original Ostrander squad, he was in the 90's squad that was seen in Superboy comics, New 52 squad's first incarnation (in a HILARIOUS manner) and in the NEw Suicide Squad he was with Deadshot and Harley the only members that stayed trough it. And now with rebirth he is again the mainstay character.
Point is, Boomer's kinda the mascot of the team by now.
This made me very happy. I was afraid they were going to go with Thor/Loki route with Ocean Master. I wanted something a little more original. Black Manta is one of the coolest looking villains and one the rare villains that I think are really legit terrifying. I'd hope they get Djimon Hounsou to play him. That dude can be terrifying.
Glad to see someone else liking this version. He seemed like he was on the edge whole time, I really got the feeling that you really can't predict what he does next. Especially in that flashback. Before this I was hardcore fan of not having the Joker in the next Batman movie- but now I kinda want that. To see the whole "Jared Leto Joker" experience.
This only confirms my headcanon that Asmodeus pretty much acts and sounds like Hades from Disney's Hercules movie.
"Name's Asmodeus, Lord of the Damned. Hi, how ya doin'?"
Mortal: "I'm going to hell for this, am I?"
Asmodeus: "Nah. I mean, it's, you know, it's a possibility. It happens 'cause, you know, it's war, but what can I tell ya?"
"My sweet deluded little minion. Aren't we forgetting one teensy-weensy, but ever so crucial little, tiny detail? I OWN YOU!"
Hey, ummm, I saw it in preview show.
And I liked it. Not loved it, but liked it. Will Smith is amazing, as is Margot Robbie and most of the Squad. Can't judge on Jared's Joker basis of this movie. Jai Courtney finaly managed to be enjoyable in a movie. I really loved Boomerang in this. Story is something of a mess, but characters are really fun as are their interactions.
I would recommend seeing it.

Almost exactly the reason why I was originally going to see new Star Trek movie. Then I heard it was good and that factored in.
When superhero movies are being made I avoid staring too much at the comic books history of the character. Maybe she's not a colonel, but the rank is not really that important to me. Her being still not so experienced and learning while having these umbeliavable powers is, to me at least, more interesting story.
What interests me more is the "NPC Gallery" of this movie. Is Mar-Vell gonna show up? Are they gonna have ties to AoS and Tahiti in any way? Coulson cameo would fit this good. Is Moonstone the BBEG or Yon-Rog? Yon is in her origin story so that would fit, though I looove me some Moonstone. Maybe one of the runner-ups should be her :D
Has there been any rumors about the director?
Seen it yesterday, really liked it. And yes, Kate McKinnon was awesome from start to finish. Hemsworth made me laugh so much, he was a ball of fun. All the actors had chemistry between them. Not all jokes landed but most did. Villain/ending bit weak but at least it looks fun and new ghost designs are impressive.
Probably gonna see this again!

I like the idea of playing a character who was one thing before the "event" and another afterwards. Barbarian becomes Id Rager. Not-a-Occult Class becomes a Fractured Mind. Investigator becomes a Psychic Detective. Etc.
Not a bad idea. Our group did something similiar in Jade Regent. One PC was a cavalier at the start until he found some books and guides of samurais and he became samurai as well.
