the worst thing about sci-fi-ish blockbusters since the late 90s is the drab darkness of so many designs in the name of looking "realistic". like how do you take a design like that, with tons of bright red and a lightsaber and leather and cloth and satan and all kinds of poo poo, and turn it into "dude with kind of generic armor and a dorky helmet"? it's like they want these movies to be for serious adults but then they give them lovely plots and phoned-in performances anyway so you get the worst of both worlds

the whole MCU is just...off in this exact way. this doofy rear end in a top hat is the essence of what's wrong with the aesthetic

In addition to other things, 9/11 was the worst thing to happen to the blockbuster movie because now everything has to be coated in huge clouds of grey dust. The final battle in Endgame looked like absolute garbage.

He's Darkseid's uncle.

Honestly, comics people were mostly baffled too, he's a pretty obscure character.

One of the better episodes of JLU involved superheroines getting brainwashed and forced into black market gladiator fights. It goes pretty standard and well until Wonder Woman shows up and everyone drat-near pisses themselves just trying to stay alive.

Just film that. Nothing about this needs to be thought on very hard.

Like, a theory came up a likely reason that pre-release Sonic was so ugly was specifically because it's a live-action CGI mix and the director thought Sonic had to look 'realistic', they couldn't do any Roger Rabbit or Smurfs stuff, obviously he had to look like some human/hedgehog hybrid to be a bipedal talking animal, otherwise it's not consistent. The idea that audiences can accept an otherworldly being not having to look 'realistic' and that Sonic's design is the one thing you don't have to take liberties with at all never crossed their minds until the design was revealed and was met universally with mockery and revulsion.

Also, you think Steppenwolf looks silly, one of Darkseid's other lieutenants is literally called Verman Vunderbar and looks exactly what you'd expect from that name.

There were a lot of "he can't look like a cartoon" notes from Jeff Fowler, while Sega was giving contradictory "he doesn't look like Sonic" notes, so the initial movie design was the result of that tug-of-war. Stuff like the 2018 Peter Rabbit movie was provided as reference from Fowler, as well as some way more animalistic concepts with beady little eyes and digitigrade legs. Fowler didn't even want the guy to wear shoes, which is why there's a plot point about Robotnik tracking Sonic's footprints.

I don't think the design would even have been bad if they'd let Fowler do the fully animal version of the character (though the Tyson Hesse redesign is the best possible version of "Movie Sonic"), and everyone involved knew that the halfway-point gremlin that appeared in the first trailer wasn't working.

Makes me wanna rewatch that JLU episode with Flash and Orion, they realised pretty quick that the New Gods melodrama goes hilariously with a goofy and good-natured yet powerful speedster.

...reminds me that should work with Sonic, but the writers insist on getting him all caught up in the melodrama rather than have any real clash. Also comes to mind that the Sonic movie also works because the humans that Sonic hangs out with are also goofy and silly, along with of course Robotnik. Actually, on thought, makes sense that Sonic particularly hangs around the sheriff who talks to his food when there's no one else around, and happily messes with the local cryptid-hunting kook; he likes goofy, silly people.
