Aperitif comes before the main meal. You're thinking of a digestif.

It's exactly what I liked about the first one though, so I'm glad the second is like that also. Nice to have something a bit smaller with lower stakes. Not everything has to be for the fate of the universe.

Ant-man and The Wasp is really good.  Compact and focused story.  The comedy elements fit the style, Michael Pena did an excellent turn and Paul Rudd is really watchable in just about anything.

However, I feel slightly sorry for Ant-man.  Tony Stark got the Audi endorsement and the Ant-man crew are rocking Hyundai motors.

The credit Marvel recap of the film you just watched was gorgeous too.

Batman: The Animated Series is coming to BluRay in October 22nd. Also included in the set are BluRays of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Batman & Mr Freeze: Sub-Zero.

Needless to say, I pre-ordered this within seconds. It’s up for pre-order at £57.99, or there is a deluxe edition that comes with Funko figures for £79.99.

Just saw Teen Titans Go to the movies. Possibly the best DC film since Batman Begins (yeah I don’t enjoy TDK, save for Heath Ledger) and easily the2nd best Superhero film this year. Haven’t laughed at film that much in ages. Definitely worth a watch. Funnier then both Deadpool films combined as well and smarter.

I LOVE 'Mask Of The Phantasm' and if I had more disposable income I would be pre-ordering this in a heartbeat.

This belongs in the unpopular opinions thread. TDK has it's faults but it's still the best Batman film. Then again, I champion the likes of 'Long Halloween', 'Dark Victory' and 'Hush' as being in the top-tier of Batman stories so of course I would love TDK as it was heavily influenced by them.

Why is the one with funkos more expensive?

Saw Ant-Man/Wasp yesterday, it was fun enough but neither ant-man film stands out as anything special to me and it was just very standard MCU fare. The FBI agent was funny but even that felt a bit by the numbers at this point.

It's the limited deluxe edition. Pop completests will eat that stuff up even if it is nearly £20 more. I'm going to get the standard edition for sure. Fortunately I never got round to importing Mask of the Phantasm or Sub-Zero.

You get 3 Funko figures (Batman, Harley Quinn and Joker) in the deluxe edition, which is exclusive to HMV. I’m not sure if the figures themselves are exclusive to that set or if they’re just Batman ones that have already been released. You also get 7 lenticular art cards, if your into collecting that sort of thing.

They’ve updated the listing since yesterday too, which now states that there are 11 episodes with Audio Commentry and includes the Special Features:

* All New Documentary - The Heart of Batman - A rare gathering of talent defined Batman for a generation. This hour-long documentary takes an in-depth look at the renowned storytellers behind the landmark series.
* The Dark Knight's First Night Pilot Promo - Witness the 1991 Batman promo reel as producers Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski discuss the origins of Batman: The Animated Series.
* Batman: The Legacy Continues Retrospective – DC luminaries join BTAS creators as they explore the combination of exquisite design and in-depth storytelling that helped create a once in a generation show.
* Robin Rising: How the Boy Wonder's Character Evolved – The evolution of Dick Grayson from young ward to crime fighter.
* Gotham's Guardians: The Stalwart Supporting Characters – Batman is not the only hero safeguarding Gotham City. This documentary focuses on the importance of the Dark Knight's allies in the Batman mythology.
* Voices of the Knight – Actors Mark Hamill, Kevin Conroy, Adriene Barbeau, Efrem Zimbalist Jr., and Andrea Romano discuss the process of bringing their iconic characters to life.

Fuck's sake. Ruby Rose has quit Twitter because a bunch of fucking shrieking shitbags can't accept a gay actress playing Batwoman as a gay character on screen, and getting her own spin-off series as such. Geek fandom at its absolute, dirt worst. 

Ah, fuck it. Make Superman and Batman gay. Mark Millar's shit, but clearly he was right. Make those two gay, and watch the internet collapse under the weight of the rage posts.

It's to be expected at the minute. Geek culture online seems to be 'pile on if you don't like something' from the vocal minority and there's some horrendous stuff been said in recent cases. It's a crazy bit of PR backlash though with some members of the LGBT community they were trying to appeal to attacking the casting.

Ruby Rose has been attacked by some of the LGBT+ community since she started making waves in OITNB, there was a lot of "ugh, hollywood is choosing this conventionally pretty white woman as our representative" sentiment going around social media circles (I'm looking at you, tumblr). I was seeing it in this left leaning gaming group I'm in a few days ago too.
