So has anyone heard of this show on syfy called "Krypton" that takes place 2 generations before the events of Superman?  I have never heard of it but Season 2 just premiered. Zod and his followers look a lot like NOD troops from C&C Tiberium Sun so it piqued my interest.

As far as I can tell Val-El, patriarch of the El family, is arrested and executed by the corrupt leadership of Krypton. The El's are stripped of their noble privileges and forced to live in the slums. Val-El's son, Seg, figures out that his father was arrested because he found a terrible secret. Then some people from the future come back in time to save Krypton. An earth man named Adam Strange and General Zod.

From what I can tell its one part Dune, one part Red Faction, and a dash of Game of Thrones. Val-El is even played by the same actor as Barristan Selmy from GoT.

Edit: Oh, also the actor that plays Zod sounds VERY similar to Patrick Stuart, at least in the speech I heard him give in Season 2's premier. I may go back and watch season 1.

Haven't seen it (or even heard about it), but in case people haven't heard, the latest DC series, Swamp Thing has been cancelled a week after it premiered. This has nothing to do with ratings, but the fact that North Carolina screwed up and miscalculated the tax break it had given the show. Basically the show's budget was cut in half and considering that it's a budget heavy show, its been cancelled.

There's a forthcoming show on the CW network; I've seen previews while watching The Flash but they don't give a title. There's a spotlight Batsignal, and a woman in a Batsuit, and a "Coming Soon". Thats all I know right now.

That would be Batwoman, with Ruby Rose as the eponymous heroine.

Also not clear if it's going to be in the same multiverse as The Flash, Supergirl, Arrow, and Legends. I remember one episode of Arrow when they went to Gotham City.

Holy shit, Adam Strange! One of my favourite trades as a kid was an Adam Strange.

Sounding like it was good. I am worried people are going to go into it thinking its an action movie because its a comic book movie when really its a drama about a man being broken.

In a world as nihilistic and violent and grim as the one we currently live in, with more people than ever more aware of that, I cannot imagine a movie I want to see less than one focused only the Joker. Without even a Batman to kick his ass. I don't get it. Like, America practically elected the fucking Joker.

I'd say I might be taking it too seriously - which is true regardless - but it sounds like the movie, director and star all do too...

Doesn't help that the director can't understand where peoples criticism is coming from.

Someone watch that and tell me if it's good.

One of the only Millar-written comics I still like. But I haven't read it in ages so maybe I'd hate it now.

For me Millar's comics work when he has to use established characters, not his own original ones
The movies have always, with the exception of Wanted, been better than the comics




Apparently the Harley Quinn so is actually really good

Although I agree with you on a relative scale, because none of his work with other people's IPs are as bad as say, Kick-Ass or Wanted, but it's not like Ultimates is... good.

Also, Millar seems to really, really hate women.

The first 2 Ultimates were good for the time, and really laid the groundwork for Ultimate Marvel and the Marvel movies
But yeah, he sucks when it comes to writing women

Still the best thing involving him

Millar is basically a teenage edge lord who never grew up.
