Marines are between a rock and a hard place... They look massive. They look like they should be moving with a lot of gravitas. But the canon says they are faster, more agile and have better reaction time than any human possibly can.
Seams like a tough balance to me.
Anyways. I just watched the trailer. It looks awesome. If this turns out better than helsreach then it might get my brother fired up about 40k again. Lol
I think I have reasonable expectations. The guy who did helsreach did a fantastic job of it. Given that the story is a damned good one to begin with, but he had to adapt it for the series. And animate everything, and develops his animation process, and piece it all together. And it was a side project while he paid the bills some other way.
With BL author's actually trying to write a script (which is not at all the same as writing a novel) it may be knew to then, but it will also let them write for a visual media on purpose. There are things one can do in a media that one cannot in another. So I've got good expectations there.
said its their best authors. That's open to interpretation. We can definitly get into a discussion of work that can be.
Obviously ADB is top knotch and his work has already passed thru boylands capable hands.
Dan Abnet is great too... And since he was involved with the guardians of the galaxy comics and the the films he has good experiance seeing his work end up on screen. So he can definitly and probably has already pondered 40k "on screen" so I think his involvement woukd be a good choice too!
I'm excited. It's been a long time coming.
But we are in a post LOTR/HOBBIT blockbuster film era. We are deep into the Marvel Cinematic Universe block busters and accompanying tv/netflix/hulu series era.
At no point in my life could I see 40k hitting the screen and being better accepted than now and into the future.
I've spent the last 2 decades of my life watching films and tv and mentally filtering moments as being "very 40k" I don't know if my brain can handle it actually happening. 😂
