    Well really these things go hand in hand.

    The business reality is that characters (heroes and villains) are popular and financially worth reusing. So heroes can't kill because guys like Lex and...

    Anyone think there's a chance of a animated series set after ROTJ featuring the original cast? I'd like to see more of Luke, Leia, and Han during their prime, after the rebellion but before...

    I kind of have mixed feelings on this. On one hand it's cool that Anakin will show up; it'd be a huge omission for both shows not to feature him in some capacity.

    But at the same time, Hayden...

    I stopped reading the novels....gods, long time ago. The Skywalker kids were still kids and had just begun their Jedi training I think?

    But balance. That's all I'd want from the new canon. I...
  6. Poll: What really kills me is that, when you step back,...

    What really kills me is that, when you step back, there's only a few flaws in the sequels that ruin everything. Adjust just a few things and the film narrative is vastly improved.

    Finn being...

    Yeah I thought Abomination was relatively well done. There wasn't a ton to the guy, but there was enough for him to feel like more than a one-dimensional blank slate and his motivations were...

    There's always been the "acceptable losses" argument, the idea that recurring villains eventually become such an issue that a hero not putting them down (or allowing others to do so) is increasing...

    Far as I know, the last we heard about any film was that the live action thing wasn't "totally" dead in the water. But that doesn't mean anything, plenty of films float in development limbo for...

    First thing I greenlight is a Cass Cain solo film. We're not looking for a big summer blockbuster, we're looking for something more character driven, emotional. Closer to Logan than Avengers, yknow?...

    The sequels weren't ruined because the Skywalkers didn't get a happy ending, but that sure as hell contributed to it.

    The family had already gotten its happy ending. Vader was redeemed, Leia and...

    Pretty much this. I have no real problem with Ben Solo being tempted and/or corrupted by the dark side. That's a common Skywalker narrative trait. But I do take great issue with how the sequels screw...

    Neither do I but the world is a big place. I'll entertain the notion that a valid argument might be out there somewhere. We won't find it on Fox, but it's possible there's a argument that isn't just...

    And this is why I don't "count" her as a Robin. She wore the suit and used the name, but as a prop in Tim's story. DC doesn't get credit for a prop.

    When Steph becomes Robin and the story actually...

    I agree it's risky to stack a new main character up against the Skywalker name in any core trilogy film. It's called the Skywalker saga for a reason after all. But I think Rey's arc "could" have...

    And the other Robins have all gone by different names too. So it's a moot point.

    Three issues. The story wasn't even about her, but about how her boyfriend was the "real, bestest, ultimate Robin...

    This is where I come down on it.

    Saying that Steph isn't a Robin has nothing to do with her gender, and it's actually kind of sad that this is the first thing people assume. We all know there's a...

    You're missing the point. I'm not talking about Rey. Her parentage is a non-issue here, beyond being one example among many of how the sequels bounced around with no real direction, consistency, or...

    I'd support Robin-Stargirl. I don't know if Tim has landed on a label for his orientation yet but he's liked girls in the past and what young teenaged man wouldn't find Courtney the most adorable...

    Yeah I'm not gonna be too upset that most of Vic's supporting cast and villains didn't make it into season 3. The same can be said for a whole lot of characters.

    Oh I totally agree with you on that. I'd say the vast majority of the Satellite era, Black Lightning, Vixen, and several others deserve it from a in-universe perspective.

    But they're not A-list...

    I think it played a role, but was merely one factor among many that threw the sequels into their downward spiral.

    I don't believe Rey was ever meant to be a Skywalker; her journey in TFA mirrors...
