Batman cacaphony is kevin smiths batman story. One of the worst batman comics there is excluding golden age garbage. Just saying. Sometimes hes way too close to the source material and feths it all up.


These are my opinions. This is how I feel. Others may feel differently. This needs to be stated for some reason.

people say Frank is crazy, but selling a Sin City story about some deluded dress up sex cult as a Bat-Story most likely paid a fair few medical bills (and whilst its terrible its not the worst thing he ever did to Bats)

Well, that's only because DC had a moment of sanity before letting him use Batman for Holy Terror.

"The 75mm gun is firing. The 37mm gun is firing, but is traversed round the wrong way. The Browning is jammed. I am saying "Driver, advance." and the driver, who can't hear me, is reversing. And as I look over the top of the turret and see twelve enemy tanks fifty yards away, someone hands me a cheese sandwich."

Yes. All Star Batman at least has iconic, if crazy, lines and moments. "What are you slowed? I'm the goddamn Batman!".

Cacophony has no redeeming qualities. Its officially published fan fiction with self insert characters and all.

Should have doubled down on it. Teela is now black, disabled, and takes a knee during the Eternian anthem. One of the major first season arcs is about her struggle to install wheelchair ramps in Grayskull, set to be thwarted due to its status as a major historical monument.

“Good people are quick to help others in need, without hesitation or requiring proof the need is genuine. The wicked will believe they are fighting for good, but when others are in need they’ll be reluctant to help, withholding compassion until they see proof of that need. And yet Evil is quick to condemn, vilify and attack. For Evil, proof isn’t needed to bring harm, only hatred and a belief in the cause.”

Actually given Teela is a red head there’s a 70% chance she will now be black

I'm from a generation after He-Man faded into obscurity so I really only know it from old Cartoon Network/Boomerang reruns and internet memes. Along with some of the old comics my uncle gave me when I was little. I'm honestly a little excited to watch this and see how it turns out.

The Daemon Possessing Fulgrim's Body





Devon, UK

Netflix and Mattel Television’s animated Masters of the Universe: Revelation won’t air until likely 2021, but when it does, it will feature an impressive list of voice talent including Mark Hamill (as Skeletor!), Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kevin Conroy, Lena Headey, Alicia Silverstone, Justin Long, and even…Jason Mewes?

Yes, Jason Mewes is along for the ride, as is befitting a show where movie writer/director Kevin Smith (the Silent Bob to Mewes’ Jay in Jay and Silent Bob) serves as showrunner and executive producer. And even though it’s based on kids’ toys from the 1980s, this new series is…pretty damn serious.


“Teddy Biaselli, our exec at Netflix, is an amazing man, and grew up on the franchise,” Smith told Newsarama. “Teddy's big note and only note was, ‘When I was a kid, I did not realize this was campy. This was so serious to me, please just treat it serious. Treat it like Shakespeare.’”

ADVERTISING

That’s what the series’ writers, who include Eric Carrasco (Supergirl), Diya Mishra (Magic the Gathering), Marc Bernardin (Alphas), and Tim Sheridan (Reign of the Supermen) have done.

“We went in with this mantra of, like, nobody is winking and nobody's acting like this is weirdness,” Smith said. “ManAtArms, Stinkor, or no, it's all played incredibly Game of Thrones-straight.”


And if you let your mind’s eye flash back to old He-Man cartoons you may have seen, you’ll notice something was missing there, which will now be in effect.

“We got fights, because now we can,” Smith said. “They couldn't even really clash swords back then. Adam [He-Man] could raise his sword, but he could never use it.”

Smith also called the new show “a sequel series to the classic era that everybody knows, almost as if this was the next episode in the [original] Filmation series.”

Smith is also pleased with the look of the series.

“If you like the style of Castlevania, just put HeMan through that filter, and it has that feel and look to it,” he said. “It's anime style.”

In fact, the animation will be provided by Powerhouse Animation, who also did Castlevania.

Voice work for the first six episodes is almost done, and as pleased as he is with the animation, Smith said the actors have “really turned this into something even more special. The talent has absolutely elevated it beyond what we had on the page.”

The cast includes:

·Mark Hamill (Star Wars, Batman: The Animated Series) as Skeletor

·Lena Headey (Game of Thrones, 300) as Evil-Lyn

·Chris Wood (Supergirl, The Vampire Diaries) as Prince Adam / He-Man

·Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Cruel Intentions) as Teela

·Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones, Clash of the Titans) as Man-At-Arms

·Stephen Root (Office Space, Barry) as Cringer

·Diedrich Bader (Office Space, Napoleon Dynamite) as King Randor / Trap Jaw

·Griffin Newman (The Tick, Vinyl) as Orko

·Tiffany Smith (Behind Enemy Lines, Supernatural) as Andra

·Henry Rollins (Johnny Mnemonic, Lost Highway) as Tri-Klops

·Alan Oppenheimer (original Skeletor) (Westworld, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe) as Moss Man

·Susan Eisenberg (Wonder Woman, Justice League) as Sorceress

·Alicia Silverstone (Clueless, Batman & Robin) as Queen Marlena

·Justin Long (Galaxy Quest, Live Free or Die Hard) as Roboto

·Jason Mewes (Clerks, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back) as Stinkor

·Phil LaMarr (Mad TV, Justice League) as He-Ro

·Tony Todd (Candyman, Star Trek: The Next Generation) as Scare Glow

·Cree Summer (DC Super Hero Girls, Vampirina) as Priestess

·Kevin Michael Richardson (The Batman, ThunderCats) as Beast Man

·Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series, Crisis on Infinite Earths) as Mer-Man

·Harley Quinn Smith (Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot) as Ileena

Smith called the process so far “insanely gratifying,” and hearkened back to his one and only Netflix note.

“We’ve approached He-Man like a kid show, but kids who watched it never saw this as a kid show,” he said. “That’s the key.”

I straight up loved that movie as a kid. I watched it again a few years ago and man, I gotta say, it is nowhere near as bad as some people think it is. I mean Frank Langella as Skeletor is easily on par with Raul Julias Bison when it comes to chewing the scenery.

I have it on DVD and watched it with the commentary from the director. The whole movie can be summed up by a line he said as the movie started rolling.

"They asked me if I could make a He-Man movie for 12 million dollars. I said yes."

That's all you gotta know about it and it has a lot more heart than you would think.

They have the original voice for Skeletor. And he’s been supplanted in the role. And everyone’s probably going to be cool with that.

Never saw that coming.

With a project like this? Apart from money, there are the usual reasons: They watched the cartoon when they were kids and wanted to be a part of the new one, and/or they have kids/grandkids of their own that will watch the new show and they're doing it for them. That second one is one of the reasons Redford appeared in the MCU, and I think Glenn Close said the same, too.

While it’s no Dolph Lundgren’s Masters of the Universe, Super Mario Brothers has an awful lot of bad-movie charm. I find it more rewatch able than Street Fighter.


PS: Autocorrect tried to correct “Dolph” to “Adolph”, which is exactly the kind of evil thing Hitler would have done.

I kinda think He-Man was kinda progressive for it's time, sorta. I saw a clip last year about astronauts from earth, also turns out He-Man's mother was from earth.


My own problem with "woke' is my dislike of change for the sake of change.
But then I also dislike lazy writing including the phrase "you got this" Which is super lame.
