    Considering Cavill was already considered too old.

    I have to admit I have no clue what The Witcher is all about, but cool that they're shooting in Hungary though.

    Judge as superman? Lol come on, inclusion and diversity is important but a black man portraying superman just seems farfetched to me.

    FH: Witcher III is an award winning fantasy game which was developed by a Polish company, the CD Red Project. It was a great success and it was even supported by the Polish goverment. Even lots of Hungarian programmers have worked for them as well. It is similar to the Elder Scroll series.

    The Digic Pictures made an awesome trailer for it as well :

    This Hungarian Budapest based company is specialized on game trailers and they earn a ridicolous amount of money.They are really really good... So hopefully the Netflix will make the next Game of Thrones with the Witcher series what we can enjoy in the following years.

    The Witcher is a very popular series of books written by a Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. The video games were (loosely) based on the books, and the series will also be based on the books not the games. And the series will also be a largely American production.

    Nivao: Thanks, but I am aware of it and I am very proud that a Polish franchise became so successfull. I haven't read the books and haven't played the game, but my friends praised it. It is on my list to buy it.

    So back to Stargate. The time has come to open the sarcophagus of the franchise.

    https://www.gateworld.net/news/2018/...te-convention/

    According to the GW, the announcement could happen on Saturday. Maybe we should make an announcement bingo:

    - nothing
    - nothing, but "we are working on it"
    - nothing, but "we tried to work on it"
    - nothing, but the **** SyFy sabotaged it
    - Jaffa stories by CJ
    - new Origins season or seasons
    - new mini-series from BW
    - new spin-off from BW
    - new SG movies with the combined cast of SG-1/Atlantis/Universe from BW

    etc.

    Then probably we will hear more about the furute of SG:C as they are planning to extend the service. If we are lucky it will be available in 7 countries instead of 6.

    Then they will talk about the cooperation with the Tongal

    Maybe we will hear about the Stargate merchandise shop. It would be nice to have some good quality mugs, fridge magnets etc., but most of the fans have already done such things "unofficially" by themselves.

    I need a mug that says "Best System Lord Ever", or "Oh Fer Cryin' Out Loud, Get Me Some Coffee". Or a beer glass that says "False God. Drunken False God".

    There are some fan made stuff here and there. Just it would be nice to buy some detailed fridge magnets : chevrons, complete gates, Jaffa symbols, Jaffa head armors, Replicators, X301 or tel'tacs etc. Nowadays they can make such detailed souvenirs of every important tourist attraction of every city in China, that I am doubt it would be hard to sell the license to make them some SG themed one...

    Who will be the lucky country?

    France?

    They did watch Stargate Origins illegally in great numbers, but so did Russia so it could go either way.

    You're gonna regret that because you can bet that shipping will be murder and make it impossible to order anything from across the pond.

    Kinda like Thinkgeek.com which are brilliant and have awesome amount of merch, but their shippingcosts are murder and therefor you'd have to order a great amount of stuff in order to make it worthwhile.

    Or, even better, they don't ship outside the US...

    Which is far cheaper because made by fans (or in China) and good quality too. Just 3D print them.

    No BW series. Nothing again. And they even joked about "we are working on it"....

    I have watched an hour now. I have missed the BW panel.

    The SG:C was nothing interesting or really exciting:
    - "we are working on it" for new regions
    - they will upload other languages later (also repeated "they are working on it")
    - tematic episode playlist for story arcs
    - Darren's journey video about Egypt
    - new Dialing home type of series of shooting locations in Vancouver (including Jack's cabin etc.)
    - they will upload the improved version of the episodes (especially season 7-8)

    But honestly they were talking about nothing important. I wanted new live-action materials, not "just" extras for SG:C.

    So the winner of the announcement bingo is :
    nothing, but "we are working on it"

    I don't know what to say. I should have listened to FH, but I wanted to believe in them. And they fooled us. Again.

    If it makes you feel any better, it's never my intention to be on the right path on this sort of thing. I guess, having first-hand experience with Stargate Command team and what kind of replies they always give, and especially MGM being deadly silent, while other entertainment companies acknowledge fans doing something epic on social media (see Timeless, or Brooklyn Nine-Nine), and being ignored as a fan in general gives you that more than realistic view on things that can really be annoying to others.

    They literally said nothing that wasn't already known. You can put your clock to it that they will still be saying the same thing 6 months from now, or a year from now. Keep that hook dangling around long enough, but at some point there will be no longer any fish interested in the empty hook.
