One of the animators who worked on that live-action Blue Beetle TV show test footage that Geoff Johns mentioned the other day apparently released a demo reel of his work into the wild, and it contains a tiny snippet of the Blue Beetle stuff. It starts at 0:49 and runs though 0:54 or so, and I agree with Robot 6 in that while it does look very much like CG, it’s still better than the screencaps indicated. The entirety of the footage is still coming to SDCC, so we’ll see the whole thing in a little over a month, I guess.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
