    [–] ‘Mulan’ Star Crystal Yifei Liu Skips D23 Amid International Controversy Vordeo 2 points ago in movies

    Tbf, whether or not Chinese citizens are actually getting accurate information is a whole other issue. All news is a bit propagandized, but people in other countries at least can look at other foreign news sources to get other viewpoints. Same doesn't apply to China: it's the government approved version or nothing.

    It is (was there recently), but I guess they do still care about global perception?

    Fucking Batman, always raping androids.

    [–] Stan Lee’s daughter: ‘No one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney’s executives’ Vordeo 1 points ago in news

    Yeah, agreed. And it's not just that issue, IMO Preacher is one of the best series ever written, and at it's core is about the US as a country. And it is a bit bizarre to me that it's a Northern Irishman who wrote the thing.

    I get what you're saying, Millar tends to go too far in general tbh. Both his and Ellis' (especially) runs were pretty groundbreaking though.

    My favorite Superman comic is still that one issue of Hitman where Supes shows up. It's weird that in one of the most irreverent series ever there's an issue where Supes is treated with so much respect and reverence, but damn if it doesn't work.

    [–] I very much hope Donovan Mitchell can be our Damian Lillard Vordeo 9 points ago in UtahJazz

    After like 20 years, I want to go to Vivint (or whatever it'll be called at that point) and see a statue of Rudy and Donny holding up a couple championship trophies.

    [–] YouTube shuts down 210 channels posting about Hong Kong Vordeo 3 points ago in worldnews

    Unless Tencent owns a majority of Reddit (and from what I know they're nowhere near), they do not really have significant ability to influence Reddit's decisions.

    As a majority shareholder, you obviously try and keep your minority partners happy, but if they start asking for something antithetical to your business, which will likely significantly damage your company and it's prospects, you just say no and they can't really do much.

    Of Image's stuff, Invincible is probably on the best things out there. I also have a lot of love for Savage Dragon.

    But in general their miniseries tend to be better, for me. Criminal, Planetary, and the old Authority series were great.

    [–] Stan Lee’s daughter: ‘No one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney’s executives’ Vordeo 2 points ago in news

    Nah. That's a terrible comparison tbh.

    Lee (co)created a lot of those big Marvel franchises, but hundreds upon hundreds of other people have worked on developing those franchises. Lee may have co-created the Hulk, but he didn't write a bunch of the other stories that have come to define the character. Ragnarok's plot was based in large part on World War Hulk, for instance, which Lee certainly didn't write.

    Jk Rowling wrote the Harry Potter books herself, OTOH.

    And frankly iirc comic book characters are very much works for hire, owned solely be the comics company, in large part because of Lee.

    royally fuck Sony

    I mean... Not really though. It was a negotiation, they were obviously going to try for a bigger cut of a property they added a lot of value too. Plus it's not like Sony isn't a megacorporation in it's own right.

    [–] 3 Months Away - a reflection Vordeo 1 points ago in solotravel

    Not OP, but did Bagan a few years back and it's fantastic. Jan-Mar is right in the middle of balloon season too!

    [–] Not after those post-credit scenes Vordeo 1 points ago in marvelmemes

    Or you could have just admitted you were wrong in saying they were giving up 'nothing in return.' 80m ain't nothing.

    [–] Not after those post-credit scenes Vordeo 1 points ago in marvelmemes

    Paying 50% of production costs isn't 'nothing in return.'

    [–] Not after those post-credit scenes Vordeo 1 points ago in marvelmemes

    I mean... you're kind of ignoring that part of the Disney proposal is that they'll foot 50% of all costs goig forward.

    [–] Fuck Area 51, we raiding Sony HQ. Vordeo 1 points ago in PrequelMemes

    Fuck it, live action Spider-Verse movie starring Holland, Maguire, and Garfield. I'd watch it.

    [–] Sony Kills Spider-Man Partnership Deal with Marvel Studios Vordeo 1 points ago in comicbooks

    Fair enough. I am curious what those other configurations are. Like are they just different financial splits, or completely different agreements?

    I do think they strike a deal at some point. It's too valuable for both companies.

    [–] Sony Kills Spider-Man Partnership Deal with Marvel Studios Vordeo 2 points ago in comicbooks

    History has shown that it isn't really a lock to print money in Sony's hands though. Which is why they partnered with Marvel in the first place.

    That said, Disney obviously wanted a bigger slice of the pie, and frankly given their involvement they probably deserve it. I figure this gets negotiated down to a lower percentage for Disney (which is higher than the current 5%).

    [–] Sony Kills Spider-Man Partnership Deal with Marvel Studios Vordeo 2 points ago in comicbooks

    Every report I've seen says that Disney offered 50-50 cofinancing though. So that doesn't look correct.
