Thats crazy. Ive been here since CV was just a bunch of weirdos yelling at each other about feats and continuity... cool beans!
Grim's forum posts
Disney is totally trying to buy Depp forever. i'll wait to see how he actually does, but something ive noticed since Pirates 2 is that he keeps getting cast as variations of Jack Sparrow... which is annoying considering the range he has as an actor.
i like how much they are keeping under wraps. Far too often we know the first hour of the movie months before it comes out.
and the facebook "extensive" trailer was funny. a little more excited than i was before.
currently watching Revenge, i think shes an excellent choice.
@Grim: I hate to break it to you but deathstroke and Green Arrow have fought before and Green Arrow did win.
when? i only recall Identity Crisis. But i also know that general DS can deflect/dodge/catch arrows with ease, and has combat skills that equal or surpass the likes of people who are considered best in the DCU. So even if it did happen ONCE, it would have been story driven plot crap (like when DS lost to Geo Force) and not anything that could warrant saying DS would loose to or even draw with GA regularly.
Let me further add that i am a DS fan. While i havent read everything he's been in, ive seen allot and it always grabs my attention. The reason DS is always fighting teams or people who outclass him is because DC has consistently written him as top of the Street levelers. He is physically and mentally better than all of them, and one on one in a fight with no story or plot, he would destroy ANYONE who didnt majorly outclass him. he has crippled teams. fended off and (sometimes) escaped some of the bigger names/teams in the DCU. hell, he absolutely totaled Geo Force when Geo was showing lower end SUPERMAN stats. DC has designed him to be beyond beast so that when he shows up in a fight, it scares you. Its the reason Dc constantly shy's around proper Batman/DS fights. because if you keep having them meet, One of them will eventually be considered the ultimate winner, and the other would lose face.
but in general, saying GA can go head up to DS is saying Green Arrow is better than Batman. And no one is saying that. so in this show, DS would have to be Underpowered from his comics version, or Arrow Overpowered from his, for them to be comparable enemies.
I like the actor (Sparticus is an ASTOUNDING show)... but im immediately seeing this as Deathstoke being underpowered for this show. I mean, unless he shows up once, kills his target in spite of GA, and then leave again... its not an accurate showing. Arrow has NEVER been one of the people considered capable of going 1on1 with Slade. So the idea of them being actual enemies, and the almost guarantee that DS is gonna lose his eye to Arrow... kinda makes me want to watch this show even less. They already turned Green Arrow into Batman, and Merlin into Smallvilles Lex Luthor. Now they are going to make DS more like Merlin it. It seems. i know i shouldnt judge before it comes out... but this is gearing up to be Smallville all over again. With a bunch of CW writers saying: "we can change what we want. Kill him! Add this! Who cares what the comics say? Comics are cute... but THIS IS TELEVISION!"
