Phil Lord and Chris Miller are helming a stand-alone animated "Spider-Man" film that will drop in December 2018. Two things you need to know about it: The film will be shown in theatres, and its Spider-Man will be Miles Morales.
Uh, so I gleaned off a passing tumblr post that Magneto is a Hydra agent now?
I mean, bad enough when it happens to an avowed anti-fascist who became a superhero a year before Pearl Harbour for the express purpose of punching Hitler in the face, but how is it possible to get past the opening thirty seconds of the first X-Men movie and make the exact same mistake?
>>245432 Thing is his work on the Captain Falconamerica run is actually really good. Also the people who are saying he's doing it because he's a straight-up far right Daily Stormer nationalist setting out to turn heroes into Nazis because he likes seeing Jews be miserable are way off base. He's had a longer history of making comments on the other side that are pro-left but he's just a dumbass who doesn't know how to do effective political commentary without coming off like an incredibly smug douchebag.

All the more reason to yank him away from writing something like this, then.
Isn't it weird how deceptively heroic Thanos looks? Or at the very least, not blatantly evil? The blue, the gold, the gentle curvature of his ornaments and the clear cut lines of the rest of his costume. He doesn't even hit that intentional uncanny valley of super pure and super bright that artists use to employ irony when contrasted to how evil the opulently glamorous entity actually is. He's probably one of the least sinister-looking interstellar tyrants ever produced.
For example, lacking the snarl and his typical MUH DEATH, he could pass himself of as the Kilowog to Nova's Hal Jordan in this image.
>>247607 He looks ridiculously happy. Must say, I am glad that in the comics he keeps the helmet on at all times. Seeing him without it in the Avengers 3 trailer, with ridiculously small ears, and without anything to balance out his giant chin... reminded me why guys like Thanos and Darkseid never take their hats off. :D
This current decade was like the 90s. They tried revamping all their characters, but with the keyword being diversity while in the 90s they just made everything "extreme". Then they found out they failed miserably and reverted everything to be more closer to their classical status quo (x-men went back to being a school, avengers went back to... existing, I guess, etc).
The current stupid trends are already blowing over slowly, and they are only being held up by the political climate. I'm hoping by the 2020s we'll get back to having good comics.
