Yeah, you don't know what you're talking about, "Pole." Disney lets each division and studio operate with a huge amount of autonomy. Marvel Studios takes care of Marvel Studios business, including hiring and all that goes with it, like background checks. The autonomy they operate with was earned, but it's also given out of necessity; despite what people want to believe, Disney is just too damn busy with their own operations to micro-manage Marvel Studios, Pixar and Lucasfilm. To suggest they all knew about the tweets years ago is pure ignorant speculation. Marvel Studios may have, but Disney didn't. The real reason for the firing is a simple one: Disney's core value, the ideal everything revolves around and something ingrained into their corporate culture, is that childhood is sacred, special and magical. If there is one line you definitely can't cross with them, it's that. Disney couldn't care less about the conservo-twats who dug the tweets up or what supposed pressure they brought to bear. The truth is, Disney would've fired Gunn once they became aware of the tweets, regardless of the way they were discovered/brought to their attention. As I said, those tweets crossed an uncrossable line with Disney. You're apparently also ignorant of Disney's history of cutting ties with profitable people who exhibit unsavory character flaws. For example, once accusations came to light and an investigation was made, they fired John Lasseter--Pixar guru and animation genius who turned Disney animation around--because he had become an abusive drunk. That's a huge loss for Disney there. You just know Dreamworks or Illumination would love to snap him up asap. Or maybe you didn't know that they forced the Weinsteins out of Miramax and then sold it off completely because they heard about Harvey W's atrocious reputation, but couldn't find anyone to step forward and press charges. They believed what they heard though, and cut ties rather than associate with a horrible person, no matter how much money he brought in. Also, Gunn was an unknown when he was hired BY MARVEL STUDIOS (and not Disney). It was actually a huge gamble to hire him as the director of a big budget flick about an obscure group of comic characters the general movie-going public knew nothing of, let alone cared about. He hadn't done anything to suggest he was capable of helming such a project. He wasn't sought after. He wasn't admired or in demand. To assert Disney knew beforehand and turned a blind eye because of the money he'd bring in is just astoundingly stupid, lacking in both facts and common sense, and full of shat.
Don't care about the game. Not going to buy a PS4 for one game. Prefer my 1X for gaming. It looks like the Devs did a nice job. Folks should have a good time. I do have a pre order in for the Legends figure based on game though.

FASVB replied to JayC's topic in Marvelous News's General AreaThe unmasked head is definitely the best feature of this figure. I saw some other reviews and people got better painted ones so I guess you were no so lucky. The hair to the side puts some dramatic effect but limits a bit which poses you can put the figure on. But what really bothers me and I think all are like this, is the huge gap in the crotch area. Tha is very ugly. Psylocke has that problem too, but this figure looks a lot worse. I think that they should not use legs so skinny because that would make it easier to hide or just fix the peg and sue a shorter one. In comparison I think the X-Force version looks better and the fact you can put the unmasked head on it is a plus.

I have the MCU 10th Captain America. However, I hate that his hands are closed. Does anyone have any suggestion of another pair of gloved hands that can grip which can be used without any painting? I was thinking of using the WWII Captain America but I think the color is drastically different.
Entertainment Weekly recently interviewed Nicolas Cage about voicing one of the version of Peter Parker in the upcoming animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and the "choices" he took when it came to the voice. “There are multiple Spider-Men in different dimensions that are kind of colliding together,” says Cage of the movie. “My character’s Spider-Man Noir. He’s really Peter Parker from the ’30s. I tried to channel those noir films with [Humphrey] Bogart, and have those kinds of sounds that he might make with [James] Cagney, or Edward G. Robinson, that kind of way of talking. I tried to give the character that. It was a lot of fun. I think it should be quite funny. The movie definitely has a sense of humor, and that’s a good thing because it’s good for the whole family.” Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind. "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore), and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask. He initially tries to pursue a superhero solo career, but soon finds himself teaming up with Spider-People from other dimensions — like an older, only-sort-of-wiser Peter Parker (Jake Johnson). The film will also introduce Spider-Gwen (voiced by Hailee Steinfeld), Peni Parker (Kimiko Glenn), and the porcine Spider-Ham (John Mulaney). Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse stars the voices of Shameik Moore, Kimiko Glenn, John Mulaney, Nicolas Cage, Jake Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Hailee Steinfeld, Liev Schreiber, Mahershala Ali, Luna Lauren Velez, Lily Tomlin Release: December 14th, 2018
Marvel and Netflix released a new promotional poster for the second season of "Marvel's Iron Fist," airing exclusively on Netflix September 7th. Danny Rand (Finn Jones), alongside his partner Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), is trying to keep the peace among the many warring gangs of New York. With the help of Misty Knight (Simone Missick), they discover that the crime ring in the city goes far deeper than they had ever anticipated and hanging up their swords is no longer an option. Meanwhile, Danny’s former best friend Davos returns to New York City after finding his home of K’un-Lun gone. Blaming Danny for K’un-Lun’s tragic fate, Davos swears to avenge their lost city, and reignites a sibling rivalry of sorts over the duties linked with wielding the legendary Iron Fist. Fifteen years after being presumed dead in a plane crash, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) mysteriously returns to New York City determined to reclaim his birthright and family company. However, when a long-destined enemy rises in New York, this living weapon is forced to choose between his family's legacy and his duties as the Iron Fist. Marvel's Iron Fist stars Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Sacha Dhawan, Simone Missick, Jessica Stroup, Alice Eve, Giullian Yao Gioiello, Tom Pelphrey, Scott Martin
This is hypocritical and disgusting behavior by Disney and to me is more offensive than Gunn's stupid tweets. Disney knew about these tweets BEFORE THEY EVER HIRED GUNN to begin with!!! Yet they were content to have him work his magic and make them hundreds of millions of dollars. Then this assassin drags the old tweets out because Gunn doesn't support Trump and Disney bows to the ridiculous outrage culture we live in and over-reacts and fires him. Now it back fires because no one really cared or wanted him fired other than right wing lunatics and now they've lost the guy upon who's creative genius the entire next phase of the MCU was going to be built. So stupid and so hypocritical. And if you don't think Disney didn't know about the tweet before they hired him then you are fooling yourself. Disney vets minimum wage kids who dress up as Disney Princesses at Disneyland. They certainly vet a person whom they are paying millions of dollars and whom they expect will make them hundreds of millions, if not billions of dollars. They didn't care about the tweets when no one was talking about them and he was a valued money maker for them. What a bunch of spineless, gutless executive scum. Someone should go through the history of every one of those executives and judge those idiot based on the stupidest things they did over 10 years ago.

Dropped by Target yesterday. Only X-Men figure left was Gladiator. They had a single Ross vs. Killmonger set and a couple of Falcon and Wintersoldiers. Was kinda disappointed, but no worries, I already ordered Storm and Sabretooth off Amazon, and once my replacement Psylocke arrives I can move on to Deadpool and Venom.
According to Variety, Disney despite appeals from the cast still have no plans to reinstate Guardians Of The Galaxy Director James Gunn after they fired him almost a month ago due to a number of old but very inappropriate tweets regarding rape and pedophilia were dug up online that he had made. The decision to not reinstate him comes after a meeting he had with studio chairman Alan Horn. There were rumors running around that Marvel president Kevin Feige wanted Gunn reinstated as well, however he apparently was out of town when this meeting between Gunn and Horn happened and reports indicate now that Feige stands by Disney in their decision. Feige will begin the process of finding a replacement for Gunn when he returns. Our money is on Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi. Also no word if Gunn's script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 will be used or if the movies 2020 release will be delayed or not. The truth be told, if you bother to read all of Gunn's old tweets I don't think there was any way Disney, a company that has built itself on the idea it is a family oriented company making movies for kids could risk bringing Gunn back. The political reasons why the Tweets were dug up are immaterial and while Gunn claims his tweets about rape and pedophilia were done as a "joke" and to be "edgy", it has left many questioning Gunn's true state of mind when he made those tweets. If Disney had brought him back and later something else came out indicating the man is some kind of pedophile (which we aren't saying he is), it could possibly destroy Disney as a company. We still don't really understand how Disney did not know about the tweets when they hired him initially, but now that everyone knows about them, there would be no chance of playing the ignorance card going forward. There have also been rumors Warner Brothers might try and hire Gunn for DC Comic based movies, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that one either, pretty much for the same reason Disney won't hire him back. Gunn at some point, once things die down will likely be able to find work again assuming nothing else about him comes to light, but I doubt it will involve movies that are geared primarily for kids.
mako replied to JayC's topic in Marvelous News's General AreaI know, right? Though to be fair, I don't even wanna see them try unless Robbie comes with the car. It doesn't have to be some huge elaborate lights and sound monster. Give us a plastic shell on wheels like Mattel did with the Adam West Batmobile a few years back. As long Robbie can sit in the bloody thing, I'm good. Or at least I will be once we get a Melinda May figure.

FASVB replied to JayC's topic in Marvelous News's General AreaAnother work of art from Mezco and unfortunately impossible to get. If I could have just one Punisher I would be happy. This is one of the characters that they do best.
FASVB replied to JayC's topic in Marvelous News's General AreaHello Jay! This figure is just awesome! I love this classic look for Bishop. I am a fan of the Jim Lee era, so I am most familiar with this look for him. Like I said in the Omega red comment, these two were the ones that was most excited for and I really hope to get them someday. He looks just perfect besides Cable. Another must have for me. Since I'm not into the toybiz era and I have a special attachment to this look for the characters because of the comics and the cartoon, I will stick with him as the best out of the two. Sure he's simple, but effective and in keeping with the classic look for the character.
