Watching The Boys season 2 so far, the series is both getting further away from the comic and also in some aspects getting closer. They introduced Terror, Female had a completely different origin but now started doing Mafia jobs and tearing peoples faces off, Frenchie is just a gangbanger crook and not the batshit insane fellow he used to be, and Black Noir is some kind of ninja. Maeve is a lesbian, and Stormfront is an influencer chick with a sidecut who has been around in different alias since at least the 70s, killing random niggers, and it has been implied that she re-makes her own image over the years to become a new hero - possibly because she does not appear to age. I was disappointed they didn't go with the ubermensch origin, but right now it feels like they will do that, but just through a different route. Last episode had her and Homelander wrecking an entire apartment while hatefucking.
According to the trailer, Love Sausage will also appear in later episodes, can't wait to see that.

>>417410 ... I remember liking King of Thieves (the one where Aladdin meets his dad who basically runs Ali Baba's gang and crashes their wedding looking for an oracle rod, so he can find the hand of Midas). But I haven't seen it since I was a child, so I can't comment on whether it was actually good or not.

Why Batgirl? Because Warner Bros. has apparently decided to give Joss Whedon a shot at writing, producing, and directing a Batgirl film: http://birthmoviesdeath.com/2017/03/30/joss-whedon-will-direct-batgirl

Has Disney's Marvel cinematic universe set the bar too high? Will audiences ever reach peak super hero fatigue? Is anybody actually watching the Marvel television series?
Wrong person to answer that (I mostly watch older stuff), but currently watching Vikings. It's not super new, but the episodes I'm at were done within the last 5 years. The writing is a mish-mash of sagas, as well as creative liberty. What happens in the show and what the actors do on-screen is very realistic regarding actual human nature, with only mild romantization. The only flaws are an unnecessary blue tint on the camera and just a tad too much pointless drama (realistic, but I could use less).
Vikings is essentially Game of Thrones, with more realistic and down to earth.
