The originals ARE pretty dark though.

Oh man, I don't know if I want to be reminded of THAT scene from Short Circuit 2.

Yeah that fact that he was a childlike Megatron is pretty open to dark places. Only interested if Fisher Stevens does his Indian act again.

I know this isn't movie news per se, but I just got my ticket for Thor: Ragnarok. All I can think of is "Please... please let this be better than Thor The Dark World".

I have extremely high hopes. Mostly because it's loosely based on Planet Hulk, which is one of the best stories to come out of Marvel in a long time.

So true! That's the story that got me reading super hero comics again.
FINE

I hope you're right Pak. I'm definitely crossing my fingers.

I would kill for a Planet Hulk movie (that animated one doesn't count).  Sadly, this almost certainly won't happen.  Even worse, that probably means She-Hulk won't happen either.

I hope they can find a loophole similar to The Hulk where they can have She-Hulk as an avenger, she just can't headline her own movie.

In completely different news...

I gotta ask... why... Is Bobs burgers really popular enough to warrant making a movie out of it?

It's got a very rabid but quiet following. It's the kind of show that makes you want to watch every week, but doesn't compel you to wear it on a T-shirt or talk about it to anyone who'll listen. It's managed to hold its own in a Simpsons-Adjacent time slot for way longer than most shows do, and it's easily the best thing Fox is showing right now.

Oh, I think it can be done.  In fact, I'm guessing there's nothing stopping them.  But I would most like to see her headline her own movie.  Failing that, I could go for an A-Force movie, even though the comic didn't last very long.

As for Bob's Burgers, it's very good.  It's funny and humane and though it uses toilet humour, I feel like it tends to use it as a trojan horse to let in a weirder yet character-based kind of humour into it.

That doesn't even say if it will be animated (2D or 3D), or live action.

I'd be shocked if it was anything other than 2D animation.

I'm assuming it is just going to be the show in a movie format.  Though if the fan-animated season premiere is any indication, they are not averse to experimentation.
