Aquaman and Shazam are next on my superhero movies to-watch list.Venom is like Aquaman - it's not great, it's actually really fucking dumb, but there's at least some fun there. Aquaman due to James Wan just going full Flash Gordon with the setting and Venom purely to Tom Hardy being in Giving Absolutely Zero Shits Imma Go HAM Mode.
Remender had a 5 issue run after AXIS, technically.Are we counting "event" endings? Because Secret Empire retroactively ruined Spencer's run on both SamCap and SteveCap, and AXIS as a capstone to Remender's Uncanny Avengers is a tragedy.
I personally didn't mind it but I think a lot of people would say the last couple issues of Y: The Last Man qualify as an attack on the reader for reading the series at all.
The Summers house is also supposed to be a “first response” house. Logan is supposed to be the dude.
Let's be honest, everyone thinks it's just Cyclops/Logan > Jean, but you know Cyclops and Logan walking across Jean's room to make that top happen.
tbh if we're really doing this poly thing it was a missed opportunity to not put Scott or Logan in the middle room instead of Jean.
"Hey Jean." "Hey Logan. Keep it down tonight, okay?" "No promises, Jean."
And I thought we had similar taste. Shameful.
Nrama: I know you and Greg are following up Metal next year with a sort of sequel story, and this issue teases a “crisis.” Do all these Dark Multiverse stories play into the bigger plans for your events next year?
Snyder: Well, every one of the stories is meant to function independently - you can pick them up and have a whole world created for you. You get to really enjoy that world and feel like it’s a complete story.
But, yes, we are building something that’s really comprehensive and big for 2020, and we’ve been building it since Metal.
You can see the pieces start to come together, the pieces that were in the very first issue of Justice League playing out in “Year of the Villain” and elsewhere, and the pieces that you saw playing out in Flash Forward, and the infection that started in the Batman Who Laughs mini-series playing out in Batman/Superman.
We’re really trying to build something so that when you look back at 2019, you can say, “Oh, this is where all those storylines started to come together for something huge in 2020.”
And even though the historic Multiverse stories are isolated and meant to be one-shots - just like everything else, we’re just trying to give you a modular experience - when you put all those pieces together you’ll see the makings of something gigantic that we’re going to explode with.
Nrama: You and Greg.
Snyder: Me and Greg hopefully in 2020.
The Dark Multiverse story was hardly a subtle clue, the Fuginaut had like 3 pages of exposition about the COMING CRISIS.
I bumped it, but I think a dedicated thread that isn't comparing DC and marvel's politics would be better.
