    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    It’s pertinent, you’ve claimed ignorance because of your ethnicity, but the statue shares that with you. The thing you might not share is what the statue represents to you, not the statue itself.

    You know she’s French, right? Designed by one of the best sculptors in French history Bartholdi, and partly built by one of the most famous civil engineers in history Eiffel. She’s designed after the Roman goddess Libertas. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but it’s hard to deny the remarkable story of the statue’s inception, creation, and arrival in America.

    Yep, it's certainly looking that way right now. All the things that remain are either highly popular gross-out (Peacemaker, Harley), have big likeable stars pushing them (Black Adam, Shazam 2), or ties to the Snyderverse (Flash, Aquaman). If there isn't some financial aura around them, or they are historically popular (Batgirl, Timmverse) , then they are on shaky ground. Either we got to have faith it's going to work out or we need to go and buy new mourning suits.

    I think it’s only fair that Marvel gets a joke character in Morbius, because DC got a whole joke set.

    I would love Lego to have a look at the Eaglemoss Batmobile Collection and draw inspiration from it. Throw in some deeper cuts like the Mothmobile or the Catmobile, and I'm away.

    I’ve got all of them bar the odd Juniors one, the one from the 60’s Batcave, and the two Batfleckmobiles. I quite like seeing the evolution of them. A lot have been inspired by Keaton’s, that much is true. It’s a shame that the theme is in a slump, especially now that we have the Speed Champions chassis. A crew cab Keaton Batmobile would be a nice addition.

    I don’t know what Honey Boo Boo is, but the name is enough to put me off. That’s kind of what I was implying, that despite everything that’s going on with the lead actor in The Flash, the guy’s concern was about a different film. I can understand your skepticism about future Lego sets, but there are a good few films on the horizon, and any plan is better than the previous ones.

    I reckon it’ll be a combination of the two things, and people will get that Battinson is in his own universe but will be confused about why he’s in his own one and why the other two now coexist. Is there a multiverse or isn’t there? And allegedly the CEO felt that Aquaman 2 would be the dud. I would like a Keaton Batmobile as I wasn’t in a position to get the now overinflated GWP. Oh I know that the extremely mature themes of TSS torpedoed any chance of minifigures or sets, but I would still have loved to have them. I stand by my long ago previous comments about how Lego bypassed some of the darker corners of DC and made minifigures anyway. In my multiverse, Lego made tie-in sets based on a different Suicide Squad, I have King Shark, Peacemaker, Rick Flag, Ratcatcher 2, and a great big Starro.

    I thought he’d pretty much been wiped from everything bar The Flash, although whether it was his decision or Warner’s I don’t know. I’m just as intrigued by how long Batfleck is going to stick around for. If Flash and Aquaman go ahead as suggested, we will have had three Bats on our screens in a very short space of time. It takes a lot less than that to confuse casual fans and turn them off. Three different Batmen, and apparently cinema goers got confused about the name of The Suicide Squad and it’s predecessor. Still bittersweet about that. Lego could made some boss figs loosely tied in but didn’t, but at least my PDM is worth more now.

    False equivalence. I have no beef with how others identify, however the same thing comes around every time the subject is mentioned: just respect their choice/life/other. I’m not going to go into why I don’t blindly respect everyone on the planet, but I’m also not going to respect someone who doesn’t do that themselves. I’m not disrespecting every non binary person just because I feel Ezra Miller is an irredeemable tool shirking responsibility and jettisoning blame onto his poor mental health, nor because you say I am. My grievance is with him alone. He’s not giving any DC fans or HP fans any respect, so yes, I’m going to reciprocate that because he doesn’t deserve said respect. I’m going to cease on the subject because this is way off topic, despite the theme being dormant.

    Ezra Miller’s apology to the world avoided any actual accountability and instead blamed his mental health. Now he’s seeking help, only after he’s done a ton of appalling things. As someone who comes from a long line of neurodiverse people, many of whom have struggled with it, I can’t respect someone who treats it like an excuse to be an awful person.

    Quite a few reassurances coming out of the DC camp, post Batgirl. BB safe, as is anything to do with James Gunn. There is an actual plan, and it involves Dwayne Johnson in a producer role. Sounds like Discovery needed to steady the ship, and the best way to do that was jettison something. With any luck it will instill confidence in partners such as Lego, and we might eventually see sets that aren’t batcentric.

    Minifigure scale isn’t a fixed measurement though, is it? Look it up and it’s anywhere between 1:25 and 1:48, which is pretty broad. When City and Speed Champions for example field different sized cars, there’s no conformity. It’s a concept of something that a minifigure can fit into and exist in, and this train hits the brief. The point of it is a display piece anyway, if you want an engine with carriages then buy 75955. Some of the most significant moments in the story occur on the train, so it makes sense to make a Moments set based on them. The best way to convey those moments is evidently to make the vehicle bigger.
