And Uncle Ben, yes I know.

They've flirted with it.

Ooohhhh....a Deadman appearance would be epic.

Who knows, Berlanti hinted another Constantine guest spot might be in the offing, if I recall.


Deadman's been in every episode... of every series. We just didn't realize it :D :D :D

Also WTF?!!! They kill BC and then bring her back?!! Damn you!!!

They've 'killed' and brought back her sister three times now.

Granted, she was only REALLY dead one of those times, but still.


CB,

Yeah but I seem to think the whole dying in a hospital bit was pretty permanent since there's no more Lazarus pits.

Liberty's Edge

Well, Barry just killed himself three times in one episode, and I'm confident we'll see him in the next season, so never say never.

Kren,

Yeah but Barry has ONE ability that BC doesn't, the ability to break the laws of space, time and rationality.

Liberty's Edge

Which he just did, in spades. So it's all sorta up in the air.

Nice job Barry, now up is down, dead people are living again, and you're back in the friendzone.

I just finished Justice League Dark, Vol 3.. He got to live again...for exactly long enough to be shot in the face.

Wasn't he brought back to life in Blackest Night... or Brightest Day too? I seem to remember something about a living Deadman running around for a while.

Blackest Night brought back everyone dead. I wouldn't be surprised if Boston Brand was in there.


Phantom,

Dead man's body DID come back in Blackest Night, but his 'spirit" still roamed around. Later on he got the White Lantern Ring and started living...for a while.


Deadman operates on the opposite axis from standard superheros. He can become alive for a while, be he's always going to 'come back from the life' and die again.

Scarab Sages

Has Dead dude ever carried his own series, or has only ever been the ultimate guest star? I supposed I could research, but that would require more effort than I'm willing to expend.


A-zombie,

Not to my knowledge has Deadman been in a live adaptation. Animated yes, but not live action.

Liberty's Edge

Apparently there's been two attempts at a tv show, and Guermo Del Toro's JLD movie will include him, so no TV appearances unless the Superman cameos are a sign of a much needed policy shakeup at WB.

One of the best things about these shows, going all the way back to Smallville, is the use of the actors from those roles in past programs/movies.


Yeah I feel like DC TV knows how to honor its past.

DC Movies....less so.


Yeah, even when the writing is bad or goofy (which it frequently is for all of the shows) it at least feels like a comic book show. Usually it feels like the writers "get it".

Maybe not as much as DC's animation department (which puts Marvel's to shame, along with all live action DC stuff), but they still get it.

DC's movie department...does not.


well until recently DC doesn't really have its own movie division dedicated to just making DC movies. It's general execs running WB movies that may only vaguely know anything about the genre they are producing movies for.

IIRC they are trying to fix this problem post B vs S.


Sun,

I will most definitely agree that DC animated stuff has put MUCH of Marvel stuff to shame in comparison. But I think that's because WB execs weren't interested other than to sell toys for the show.

Like MMCJawa said, there's a shift now within the DC movies to be more...open to new ideas instead rehash the old stuff or the same plots.

So we'll see how that goes.

FYI I did like Avengers: Earth Mightiest Heroes.


I think Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Spectacular Spider-man (art style aside) were both fantastic shows, but I agree that most of Marvel's animated offerings are subpar, especially compared to the excellence of the DCAU or Young Justice.


I've liked most of Marvels stuff. Even Ultimate Spider-man and Avengers Assembled. Probably more then I like DCAU... though I do think Young Justice was the cream of the crop.

I think the best animated series were probably Young Justice and Season one of Earth's mightiest heroes... once they hit season 2 with the secret Invasion and the costume changes... I think that show spiraled hard.

Spectacular Spider-man?? The stories were good... but that animation design still turns my stomach.

The art design never bothered me. The actual animation is light-years ahead of the crappy 90's cartoon. And the stories were great. For me personally, it's the best non-comic adaptation of Spidey, bar none (vs all other Spidey cartoons, TV shows, and movies).

I didn't like the art style at all (and it initially put me off the show until a fellow Spidey fan at work told me how great the show was) but I agree the actual animation was wonderful. They perfectly captured the way Spidey should move and the "choreography" of the fight sequences is absolutely fantastic.

The storytelling and dialogue were also superb. Anytime Green Goblin showed up, you knew you were in for a treat.


Other than showing a Flight Ring, have they done anything with Legion yet on this series?

Nope.

So, the CW superman

Not impressed, will se the acting. Also what's up with that ridiculous S?

What do you mean? The S looks pretty Superman Standard to me. I'm more unimpressed with the boots and cape and colors. The S is the only thing that actually looks right


I'm less impressed that he doesn't seem as imposing as some Supermen.

The S looks fine to me.

Liberty's Edge

His physique looks about standard. He's a little skinnier that Cain or Reeve, but otherwise about typical.


Really? You say so, Kren. I think he looks underfed and thus non-imposing.

Liberty's Edge

Because tour comparing him the rediculously over muscled comic books and to Cavill's rubber corset.

Go look at pictures of Reeve or Reeves or Alyn or Cain. Reeves and Cain are a little broader in the chest and Reeves and Alyn have a bit of a gut at times, but they're all about the same amount of muscle and built.


Kren,

I'll take your word for it.

What gets me is the chin. I guess it's not as square jawed as I'm used to.

Liberty's Edge

I think Tyler Hoechlin may just have a "odd" face since a bunch of photis on Google images are far less long faced and narrow chinned, but a bunch are. It may be the angle and lighting.


It's probably the lighting for sure, Kren. Lighting for me tends to make it hard judge stuff.

The S is ridiculously oversized.

Season 1 has been released on Netflix. Now I can binge watch them before season 2.

Honestly compared to Man of Steel and any other Superman movie, show or cartoon.


Well I just came across an interesting bit of info. The CW has apparently hired Todd McFarlane to design The Dominators for live TV.

This one, apparently, and I'm so very okay with it. I find goofy/useless comic sidekicks that never grow completely obnoxious.

It took Xander Harris three seasons to grow out of being the Zeppo. Jimmy Olsen's had 75 years. It's about damn time.

Olsen has had his moments in the comics as well, such as the time he went deep undercover and faked his death when targeted by General Lane's assassins. (yeah, Lois Lane's dad is a real jerk.)

Sidekicks can grow in other ways too... remember Snapper Carr.

Yep, the Dominators will be the Big Bad for the 4-part crossover.
