Deadpool, Deadshot, Deathstroke, Deathlok: Which One’s Which?

dead

With seventy-five years of shared universe history spread out over multiple companies and periodical continuity reboots and multiple earths, getting into superhero comics can be a daunting task for anyone uninitiated into the genre. Why on earth do we have to make it so much harder for new fans by making their names so confusingly similar?

With Deadpool set to return to the big screen in 2016, Deadshot being prominently featured in the forthcoming Suicide Squad movie, Deathstroke being a major player on TV's Arrow, and Deathlok recurring on Agents of SHIELD, casual fans are being bombarded with a surfeit of the "[death][noun]" formula. Add to that the fact that most of these guys tote giant guns, swords, full face masks and/or reticles over their eyes, and that's just a recipe for confusion.

Korean Job Video Gives Rare, Brief Glimpse Behind the Scenes at Hot Toys

hot toys sculpting

Typically, we only get to see the end result of the effort sculptors and designers at Hot Toys put into each of the figures the company releases. As the company is overseas, getting a look behind the scenes is rare. Sometimes Hot Toys will share a quick pic on social media of an in-progress sculpt, but for the most part, we're all in the dark about the creative process in the studio.

As one of the more secretive companies in the game right now, it's a big deal whenever we're given a peek behind the curtain. Such is the case with this brief YouTube video from The Story, a Korean news channel which featured an interview with Hot Toys' president, JC Hong. Originally released back in April, the video is only just now making the rounds, but still offers a small glimpse at the work and process each of Hot Toys' incredibly accurate and pricey figures goes through.

The 2008 ‘Dick Tracy’ TV Special Is Highly Informative And The Weirdest Thing You’ll Watch Today

Tracy00

A few weeks ago, Matt Wilson and I watched Dick Tracy, the 1990 adaptation of the classic comic strip, directed, produced by and starring Warren Beatty. It's a pretty interesting movie, something that Beatty had wanted to do since the '70s that was clearly styled as a reaction to the success of Batman '89, a strange and ambitious project with a whole lot of fascinating flaws. But what's even stranger is the half-hour special that aired 18 years later, where Beatty reprized his role so that he could be interviewed, in character, by Leonard Maltin.
