Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Hulu picks up Sweet Tooth as a pilot.
« on: November 16, 2018, 07:15:55 PM »



Hulu has given a pilot order to Sweet Tooth, a drama based on characters created for DC Vertigo by Jeff Lemire. The project hails from Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey’s Team Downey, Hap and Leonard co-creator Jim Mickleand Warner Bros. TV.

Written and to be directed by Mickle, Sweet Tooth is the coming-of-age fable of Gus, a boy/deer hybrid who leaves home to find the world ravaged by a cataclysmic event. He joins a ragtag family of hybrids and humans searching to find answers behind the event…ultimately discovering a vast conspiracy that forces him to question his very existence.

Mickle executive produces with Team Downey’s Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey and Amanda Burrell as well as Linda Moran (Hap and Leonard). Team Downey produces in association with Warner Bros. TV.

Hulu’s current crop of pilots also include drama Reprisal starring Abigail Spencer. On the comic book adaptation front, the streamer has series Marvel’s Runaways. 


This marks the latest series project based on a Vertigo property. The Sweet Tooth pilot is looking to join iZombie, heading into its fifth and final season on the CW, Lucifer, which is moving to Netflix, and AMC’s Preacher. Additionally, Survivors’ Club drama based on the Vertigo comic, is in development at the CW.

Mickle is the co-creator, executive producer, and director of Sundance TV’s flagship series Hap and Leonard. He recently wrapped production on In the Shadow of the Moon starring Boyd Holbrook. The film is slated to be released by Netflix in 2019. Mickle’s previous film works include Cold In July, We Are What We Are and Stake Land. He is repped by CAA, Grandview, and attorney Greg Slewett.

Well, Acosta is good to go as far as his press pass.  A judge appointed by the Trump admin even said the White House had to reinstate his credentials. 

It was explicitly stated that the symbiote didn't boost Peter's strength during the original Alien Costume Saga.

Brock said this was because Peter already had augmented strength, but this has since been somewhat contradicted, as Peter was boosted by the symbiote when he later wore it as Superior Venom (to a level allowing him to stand up to Thor). To my knowledge though, the idea that it didn't boost his strength during the Alien Costume Saga has never been contradicted.

I wouldn't look too hard for an in-universe explanation for why it didn't boost his strength originally, because there really isn't one, or at least not a consistent one. The real reason the suit didn't boost Peter's strength originally is because the idea that it was even capable of boosting the host's strength was a soft retcon established a couple of years after the Alien Costume Saga to facilitate the introduction of Venom. The author who created Venom and Carnage (David Michelinie) had nothing to do with the original symbiote arc, and was simply using it (and Peter David's Sin-Eater arc) as a springboard for his own story.

Been a bit since I've read this.  Clearly remember it in my collection though.  That makes sense overall.  It's always bugged me how it didn't amp Pete.  But, everyone else it did.  I mean shit.  As stated later it put him on the level of Thor.  Which, I'd expect.  I mean fuck Brock's survived Jugg's and other's that have given Spidey hell.

Actually,  I've been reading valiant also.   The new shit has been pretty damn good.   I started with X, then got into bloodshot, & xo.  Ninjak has had some good stories.   Divinity & harbinger wars were nice.   Oh Shadow man is interesting also.

He loses.  He goes from a normal human to having super strength and various powers suddenly.  With no control or command of his powers.  Supes has talked about how much it takes him to restrain himself in the past.  Even Batman needs time to master these abilities.

Batman has gained powers before.  As Animalia mentioned, Bats even gained Superman's powers a couple of times in the past.  He knows what to expect.

Uhtceare's initial posts kind makes no mention of that.   But, does come across as Bat's not having used Supes powers before.   With the parameter being he has no time to train to use them in a fight.

Watching it now.  Feel asleep Loki's nag at it last night.
I like that he can squeeze his skull through a fucking vent.
And of course flash didn't bother to try to pull a Bruce Willis and get into the vents or search outside the building for his possible escape route.
Wally sucks!
His daughter from the future. Send her back!
She's a whiny putz! You'd think she'd know better.

Why was Eddie Brock stronger than Pete as Venom?
Was the suit ineffective in bumping up Pete's strength.
Brock worked out to make himself stronger as Venom.
Pete not at fucking all!
He was already significantly enhanced.
Did it(the spider bite)prevent the suit from amping him?
Or was it just the suit could go no further with him?

Superman shatters it.

Superman hits the shield and is absorbed and spit back out as a baby vibranium nugget.

Cnn suing trump for banning that reporter

Not sure that law suit would go anywhere.  But if they really want to sue him...they got a good slander law suit for that doctored tape

Well, thing is he made it apparent during his attack on Acosta and CNN that it was pretty much personal.  And Fox has even joined in on the suit I believe as well as a few other stations.

I was at work at the time when I found out this had happened. 
Can't lie had to fight back the tears. 
Despite his age it was still a surprise.
His contributions really brought a lot of people together.
And gave hope and allowed for people to chase their dreams.

Thanks Stan Lee.

Kryptonian gassing.  Even in space it allows him to fly very very fast. 
Due to his Kryptonian nature their very resilient to flames. 
So, he'll never be able to light a fart with a match.
