The Watchtower Episode 321: Things and Other Things

 

It’s a brand new Watchtower on San Diego’s Eve!

Thus, on such a momentous occasion, we have a bunch of stuff to yak about. Marvel dropped a bombshell on The View (I think. I mean, who watches The View?), Archie is all dead and stuff, there’s a rumor that makes me actually want to see a new Fantastic Four movie and if it fell in your lap, would you keep it?

Also, if you’re going to be at SDCC, do swing by Booth #1231 and say hello, won’t you?

The show doesn’t end there though! Have your say 24/7!

    I’m not so sure about the the idea of the FF movie moving away from the comic book. I feel it’s a potentially dangerous route to take. Remember the fate of other comic book based movies that strayed too far from the comic book? They sucked. The closer and more faithful a movie is to the comic book, the more successful it was. I’m not talking about costumes and minor things like that. I’m talking major changes so much so that it’s unrecognizable from the source material. If they plan on changing it so much, why not just create something original? Why base it on something you’re not going to be faithful to anyway? It’s just a waste of licensing money.

    I don’t agree that a family based superhero story could not be relevant. How could it not be? Are families someone out of style? I think that’s ridiculous. It’s just a matter of finding the right story and finding a way of writing that would make it interesting. It’s like Superman being condemned as being too boring to write because he’s a boy scout. You have to make him gritty to make him interesting. Ridiculous. It may not be a Superman movie, but check out Winter Soldier. to me that’s a far better Superman movie than Man of Steel could ever be. Cap is a boy scout through and through. And yet hat is one of the most bad ass kick ass comic book movies ever. The writers simply didn’t believe he was too boring to write, and wrote a really good story. That’s the secret to all this. A good story from writers who believe in the characters.

    Hey Gerry! Sorry, just saw this!!

    I agree that the idea of the family should be more relavent now than ever, all I’m saying is that if they are going to try something new, swing for the fences. At this point, they’ve got nowhere to go but up with FF Movies, and as far as the comics go I think that a little time away will do the FF good in that you never know what you’ve got until it’s gone!
