found the next watch along @Vroom


The gif reminds me of what the Hulk did to Loki in The Avengers! :rofl:


@Jurisdiction Hurray! :hugs:

Loki: “I am a god! You are, all of you, beneath m-”

Hulk smashes the smash out of Loki, to which my sold-out, midnight showing theater cheered with wild applause to

Hulk: “Puny god.”

If Hulk can smash an arrogant jackass into the ground, then Superman certainly has the right to do so, as well.

Take that, Darkseid! :superman:


It’s funny you should say that, because without getting into spoilers (not sure who all has seen it), but Apocalypse War is kind of a mix between Avengers Endgame and some of the Knightmare aspects that was hinted of in Zack Snyder’s original Justice League plans.

It’s a pretty good movie, but also a pretty hard movie for the kind of stuff these animated superhero movies do, if that makes sense. I probably won’t be able to watch it with you guys, but it would be really interesting to talk about.

Remind me to post an interview one of the main producers of this movie (and responsible for the whole New 52 animated universe movies) on Word Balloon last year, because it kind of explains a lot of what this movie ends up doing.


The difference between AW and Endgame? I liked this conclusion.

That’s one reason why I enjoy it so much. You wouldn’t expect a Justice League movie to be this dark and violent, but it shows that not every story has to be PG-13, and that when the **** hits the fan in a hardcore way, the Justice League are just as apt to deal with that as they are when Felix Faust gets a twist in his shorts that the League can deal with in five minutes or less on any given day.

Eager to read this! I love the behind the scenes interviews and such for these movies.

It’s actually a video/podcast interview! If you have interest in comics and podcasts, I highly recommend it – it’s been going on for a long time and they get amazing interviews from some of the best in the industry.

Yeah, I kind of like comics. :wink:

Podcasts ain’t too shabby either. Have you seen Only Murders in the Building, on Hulu? It centers around a podcast and is a great show.

Less than 8 hours until WAR arrives! :partying_face:

steps into what seems to be a quiet room

Oh man, sorry to see this didn’t go anywhere. I was kind of looking forward to looking at the conversations later to see some “Oh hey, here’s that character I really lo–oh, now they’re dead.”

Here’s the interview I was talking about earlier. The line I remember about the process of doing Apokolips War was comparing it to being kicked out of an apartment and putting uncooked meat in the walls in revenge.

You know, it not going anywhere actually worked out VERY well for me.


I had a raging headache at start time, and I really wasn’t in the mindset to do a watch-along. But…trooper I am, I showed up for it, and on time. :slight_smile:

After waiting 30 minutes to see if anyone would show, I said “Good. Now I can go take some Aspirin, grab dinner and get some shut-eye.”

Sometimes, things work as they should. Destiny is funny like that.

Much obliged! I’m looking forward to this.
