The Witcher: Blood Origin trailer

quote:

Blood Origin, which takes place 1,200 years before the events of the main Witcher series.

The show premieres on December 25th, so I’ll presumably have a lot of those cookies lying around.

Blood Origin will tell a tale lost to history: the creation of the first prototype Witcher,

Yeah it looked like a pilot that would’ve been laughed at by the WB.

Or my fears of what the Witcher will be when Cavill isn’t there to keep the writers out of the ditch.

This won't go anywhere useful but still...

Why aren't the writers actually fans of the original material? fricking nihilists man.

Eh. Looks OK. I’ve already paid for it, so I’m sure I’ll give it a shot.

I think it’s multi faceted.

-They can’t get work on the type of shows they want
-They are vastly different politically than the original content creators
-Representation is required by most of the platforms so if they don’t write woke it won’t get the green light
-Some of them actually hate the fans of the IP and enjoy trolling them
-Many of them just aren’t very good. Keep in mind with all the platforms and channels more writers are employed than ever, it’s like the NFL where there are only so many QBs to go around

re: The Witcher: Blood Origin trailer
Netflix acquired the rights to the Witcher universe, found the best possible man alive with the talent and knowledge to play its protagonists (or deuteragonist if you wanna argue that), which could’ve easily become one of the top shows around and possible legendary if they didn’t completely frick it up.

Imagine it like this. How much would anyone give a shite about House of Dragon if all 8 seasons of GoT were season 8 quality and Jon Snow got recast after meeting Mance and Ygritte

So to this board, that’s totally not any type of -ist allegedly, literally any non-white male casting is woke? So in your perfect world it’d…what, only be white men in all media?

Is that what you people get off on coming into every fricking thread with these same tired criticisms?

Michelle Yeoh is an amazing actress of rather legendary status at this point. She was literally in one of the most highly acclaimed films of THIS YEAR!

How about you do some research on the source material? The entire Witcher series is rooted in Slavic mythology. Educate yourself. I have no problem with Yeoh, she’s an amazing actress. I don’t have anything against any of the other actors or actresses in this show either but all of these shows over the past few years are so FORCED with inclusivity. It’s insulting.

Their race is irrelevant, but even from this tiny arse trailer, i can derive this follows the current strategy for almost every show or film.


White man, idiot, useless, helpless. Woman, all knowing, all powerful, saves idiot useless man.


Every... fricking... show

Witchers were created to fight monsters, I saw zero monsters in that trailer


The story of the conjunction of spheres could be interesting, but don't tell me it's about the first Witcher if it actually isn't.
