Entertaining as always.
Amazing Spider-Man 678 variant just sold $3.2k in 9.6, 71 combined 9.8/9.6 copies graded to date. “Screw all that,” I believe is the quote. But of course see my last comment on the previous show. The market is the market I suppose.
I did expect Walt to be far more practiced at naming off.
I’m not a star gazer and I’m definitely not a Joaquin Phoenix fan. Despite this, I was disappointed that Joaquin Phoenix turned down the role of Doctor Strange because I truly believe he is one of the most skilled actors working in Hollywood today. But perhaps it was for the best since the role of Doctor Strange did not require the nuance that he would have brought. I have no idea what’s going on over at DC and why there is a Joker movie in the works that does not involve Jared Leto. After Walter Hamada was appointed new head of DC, I think everyone thought that things would get straightened out over there, but this does not appear to be the case. I predict that the upcoming Aquaman movie will be an okay film and will do well financially due to lack of competition, namely Star Wars. I think Shazam will also be okay and will be received well by the younger audience. However, this time next year… I think the Joker could be DC’s next big hit, propelled by the complex characterization by Joaquin Phoenix, possibly unseating Heath Ledger’s Joker. It’s early days but I am excited by the potential. If director Todd Phillips can make it about the man and not just the costume… I think DC will have another hit, at least critically.
Books to load up on now would be iconic Joker stories such as Killing Joke and all the wonderfully cool covers that feature the Joker. I know of one store that held back the recent Jim Lee Joker cover from Justice League #8 in anticipation of increased interest next year.
Dang! This poster looks so good that I might have to buy it:
You’re sunshine manifest. I feel it touch me even from my home on Pluto.
