He had a couple of decent ones under Hickman - one-shot KO'ing Terrax with the voice and the same to a Green Lantern analogue (the only one of the Marvel team to really win their fight against the JLA analogues IIRC, apart from Strange who was powered up beyond usual). The Thanos showing is a weird one to assess, in many ways it is a watering down of the voice which was previously billed as potentially a killer even against Galactus-level folk in a couple of showings. At the same time, Hickman's Thanos was shown as so far beyond the elite top tier that he could literally give a bloodlusted Thor free EP/Mjolnir shots with minimal reaction, so for the voice to drop Hickman's Thanos on his arse and bloody him at least shows it is still hitting above the conventional top tier output.

Since then it's been all downhill though yeah. XvsI was a horrific time for BB throughout, which was weird because he was getting mad lip service in the build-up. Still can't quite get my head around why they ducked the opportunity for a BB vs Magneto fight when they were teasing it all through the build-up and with the cover art etc. Just weird story-telling choices.

I'm a little disappointed we apparentlt don't have a single flat Earther on this site of miscreants. I was sure someone would step up in this thread (my money was on Letters).

Why would a ship-mounted gun have a hand-usable trigger? Stupid scene (and yes I know it's a film and this is a stupid complaint).


I think if they retain Carl Urban, as well as the tone of the movie, this could be great. A season of one-hour episodes seems like a much better fit for Dredd than a movie format, where there's pressure to make the story world-threatening every single time (and which the Dredd movie managed to avoid.) It allows for smaller stories with smaller stakes, an exploration of Mega City One, mini story arcs, and so on. Just like the comics.

Yep. The comments from the Rebellion guys in the video in the OP are really encouraging as they basically say all of the same things (keeping the dark, gritty tone of the movie, but also looking to explore the setting more including all of its whackiness).

Three of the four executive producers attached to this project were also exec producers on the 2012 movie too which makes me cautiously optimistic.


It's a cartoon, not live action.

No it isn't. It's been confirmed by multiple sources that it's live action, although no-one has been casted yet.





Karl Urban has said numerous times that he would be interested in reprising the role for a TV show, please god let it happen...

Love this photo that is doing the twitter rounds - certainly not like the Brits to get over-excited by a decent boxing performance...

Hnnnnsk this looks amazing. How many episodes is it meant to be, shorter than the solo series right?

Going to have to watch this a


Here you go bro, whole fight in HD including the (massively overblown and cringey) ring-walks. Has the British commentary too which makes it more dramatic I think.

He had some carbonadium ones as well, at least under Slott. IIRC Spidey couldn't break those ones.

At any rate, the Invincible scene is really early in the Invinci-verse canon, waaaaay before he was competitive with Omni-Man. Not long after Nolan beat fuck out of him actually if memory serves.

Bane like Cap are militarily, strategic and tactically based. Which were Cap to face Tony at chess Cap would also win.

Would Cap beat Stark at chess? I am extraordinarily sceptical about that.

I get that Cap is the go-to guy for combat tactics but that isn't really the same thing at all. Chess is as much about pure processing brainpower as it is tactical manoeuvre given the relatively limited number of potential moves, which is why computers are better than humans at it.

That uppercut was fucking AMAZING.

Yeahhh I have no idea how Wlad stayed on his feet from that, albeit only briefly. Reminded me of the one Lennox Lewis bounced off of Vitali's chin (who also stayed on his feet somehow):

Who has the belts in the HW division, now? Just Wilder and Joshua, correct? They'll be fighting before the end of the year. They'll each have a tune-up fight in the summer and fight by November (as long as they each handle whatever fight is next). Believe it.

Parker has the WBO belt.

I think they'll leave the Wilder fight for a while to build interest, at the moment Joshua has limited profile in the US and Wilder has zero profile pretty much anywhere other than the States.

I think Joshua's next step will be a fight or two in Vegas to build his profile, probably either Ortiz or Pulev who are both mandatory challengers for the WBA and IBF belts respectively, although it will depend on if Wlad chooses to exercise his rematch clause. He's also talked about fighting in Nigeria as a major goal. Tyson Fury wants to fight him too and claims he could be ready to do so without a tune-up fight but he's still 7 stone overweight and doesn't have a license so I'd be amazed if that fight happens in the short term.

Wilder needs to fight someone with an actual name to raise his profile, in terms of box office he is very much the B-side compared to Joshua now so he probably needs a big fight before pushing for AJ if they want to market it as a mega-event. Wilder was talking about fighting Tony Bellew which would make a lot of sense from his perspective because a) it would massively boost his profile in the UK which is a key market in boxing right now and b) he'd annihilate Bellew who is half his size and has absolutely no business fighting a genuine heavyweight. Wilder vs Parker would also make sense as it would be an actual recognisable name to fight and if he wins would make a subsequent Joshua vs Wilder fight for the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

The 11th round, had it been completed, would have been a 10 - 7 round easily on all three scores, so that would have put Joshua even going into the 12th even with a 3 point lead going into the 11th.

Well yeah, obviously with the 11th round the fight would have flipped completely even if Klitschko hadn't been stopped. But on the scorecards at ringside it didn't need that 11th round to turn the fight - two judges would have had Joshua 6 points up after that round I believe so he would have won comfortably even if he had lost the last round. That doesn't seem an accurate reflection of the fight to me (and from what I have seen pretty much every TV/radio/newspaper that was doing live punditry had Joshua losing on points until the 11th round too).

Not that it mattered in the end of course. But it added something to the drama watching it in real time under the impression that Joshua had to at least win the last two rounds or get a knockdown/knockout to win.

I don't think the stoppage was premature really, a good number of refs would have called it after the second knock down. Joshua wasn't landing much cleanly but Klitschko wasn't throwing back and it seemed to be just a matter of time. I don't think we needed to see a great champion carried out unconscious just to be sure he was going to lose the fight.

One thing I found annoying was that Joshua was ahead on two of the cards before the knockout. There were a lot of close rounds to be fair but I - and seemingly most of boxing punditry across the spectrum - had Klitschko 1-3 points ahead at that point. Some definite home scoring going on (and I say that as a Brit!). Fortunately the cards weren't needed in the end because that would have been a potentially sour end to a classic fight.

Anyone just watch this?

Best heavyweight boxing scrap in years. The second half of the fight was like something out of a Rocky film.

11th round highlights here:

...but you really need to see it from the 5th round onwards for full dramatic effect.

EDIT - full fight here:
