NOC Recaps Supergirl: Playing Catch Up

One of the problems with having so many television options is that if you fall behind, the shows can start to pile up. Unfortunately, I fell behind recapping Supergirl, so in order to catch up in time for Lexi Alexander’s directorial debut in National City tonight, I made sure I plowed through the last two episodes and will be covering both today.

Jason Momoa as Lobo by CC-Scorsese

Jason Momoa MUST Play Lobo in Man of Steel 2

I will accept no other casting. It is too fraggin’ perfect.

Ever since news broke that Jason Momoa (aka Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones or Conan from, well, Conan the Barbarian) was in talks to join the cast of the movie I refuse to call Batman Vs. Superman, I could think of no other role other than the Main Man himself. While speculation on who he might be playing has ranged from characters as different as Martian Manhunter, Bizarro, Doomsday, and Metallo, one thing is for sure, the dude is the spitting image of the Scourge o’ the Cosmos.

NOCs of the Roundtable: The Darkest Timelines

I guess Bryan Singer has a complex about Marvel movie announcements that aren’t about the X-Men. Back in October, on the same day Disney/Marvel released the long-awaited trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Singer and Fox Instagrammed a teaser vid of their own X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer. So last week, when Sony debuted their trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Singer took to twitter to divert the attention of those fans who might have been willing to give Marc Webb’s sequel a chance:

Also because the internet has a short attention span. If the X-Men eighth-quel is indeed about the classic “Age of Apocalypse” storyline from the 90s — in which a mutant time-travels to the past and accidentally kills Xavier, thus setting off an alternate timeline in which Magneto assembles the X-Men, only to have Apocalypse choose that moment to launch a war that places mutants at the top of the food chain because he slaughters humans by the millions (holy run-ons, Batman!) — then that would mean back-to-back alternate timeline movies for the X-Men. But it got the Nerds to reflect on other media that took advantage of the alternate timeline/evil twin conceit. So we took to the Roundtable once again.
