I will respect the Bear's wish to keep his Good Shows (no capeshit pls) thread clear of capeshit, but damn it, we will discuss it here.

Trailer for Daredevil Season 2, right here.  The Punisher and Elektra both feature.

Tks pap. Can you also take James Bond? And Sherlock Holmes pls. They're both quite Capeshitty, when you think about it.

I'm going to see Deadpool tonight. Can't wait!

Not seen Season one but will have a look. Punisher looks cool.

So much stuff to catch up on not even started Flash, Jess Jones or Agent Carter yet.

What I have seen of Lucky man was rather good though

On the subject of Bond. 

I saw earlier that bookies have stopped taking bets on Tom Hardy. 

Still think it should be Idris Elba, tbh.

Tom Hardy is a great choice providing he plays it realistic which I can imagine he would.

I hope Tom Hardy don't sell out. What a waste of a Good Actor, playing fkin Bond FFS.

I think they should get with the times and give it to a disabled actor, or a midget. Something like that.

 Yes I agree, I put forward a motion for Eddie Izzard to play Mandela in the remake and Steven Hawking to star in "Born to run" the life of Usian Bolt, fairs fair in my humble.

 Casting is often too "On The Nose". When I was watching the movie bout Stephen Hawking, I was thinking it would've been braver choice to cast someone like Adam Sandler.

Look, I'm just saying that it would be better to portray UK Intelligence Bros like they actually are, i.e. Diabetic.

 Yes thats really going for it, can't upset species we haven't met yet, possibly an Ewok or maybe even a Hutt.

I am rooting for a remake of Schindlers list where everyone is played by Eddie Murphy.

Sh'up Bear.   If the first season is as good as the last, then Daredevil season two will be a winner.   Very decent casting for the Punisher, imo.   Quite a coup considering the dude's last big role was in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Looks like they're saving Bullseye until they can get Colin Farrell :)

Warning More incoming Capeshit

Legends of Tomorrow just hit the TV screens here, started in US end of January. DC Comics spin off from Flash & Arrow. Is ANYONE making normal TV anymore?

No I ain't gonna watch it, I'm with the Bear and don't do Capeshit, just Sherlock & Dr Who & Agent Carter (just for Hayley of course)

The missus has long been a fan of Arrow.   She doesn't like it when I point out "that they probably couldn't afford the licence for Batman" especially as I now watch Gotham, something she doesn't.  

I caught the first season of Flash.   It was alright, but nothing earth-shattering, and while it did feature a season-long arc, there were very few episodes totally given over to it.   Most of it was freak of the week with a little callback to the overall plot to keep things ticking over.

The newer stuff, particularly the Netflix Marvel shows, take the complete opposite approach.  Those shows only have around twelve episodes to tell their tale, so there is very little week to week filler, compared to the CW DC stuff.

Minority Report.

This is SUCH an annoying show. The concept was superb, the pre release marketing by Fox was massive, yet because it did not contain Zombies or Capes it's ratings from Day 1 were dire, and the original 13 episodes were culled down to 10 and no hope of a reprieve.

Why was it annoying? The concept is 2065, 11 years after the Pre-Cog unit was disbanded (ie Tom Cruise did his stuff) and the 3 kids in the Milk Bath have gone off the grid and become all grown up (nearly).

They still "see" crimes, Dash sees the "video" his brother Arthur gets the details such as name and their elder sister Agatha sees the future. Again, so far so good.

The stories are good, the script writing is decent, the problem IMHO is that the actors just do not fit the roles (except maybe Arthur), the visuals are all Bright Light and sparkling clean (in a future where climate change is supposed to have wreaked havoc, and for me it seems just too bloody glossy & Prom Night Cheerleader type shit, especially compared to the "darkness" of the original movie. Dash is just so shit it's impossible to feel any connection to the character, and tbh the only thing the Female Lead brings to the show is her cleavage and the ability to make incredulous leaps of co-incidences every week.

What a bloody waste of what should have been a great "Universe" it will be mourned by me for fooking up something that could and should have rocked.
