    Welcome back to The Rundown, our daily breakdown on comic news stories we missed from the previous day. Have a link to share? Email our team at rundown@multiversitycomics.com.

    – As you’re planning your breaks from binge-watching of Jessica Jones (or The Man in the High Castle, In case you were looking into some counter-programming ideas), you might want to think of taking one around 10am PST/1 pm EST, as that’s when Frank Miller will be participating in a Twitter Q&A centered around “DKIII”, the latest in his “Dark Knight” series of comics. You can find the details at the link. Since this is DC-sponsored and facilitated, I wouldn’t expect any gotcha questions to get through or that Miller’s responses would be too unrehearsed. That said, I wasn’t expecting his Newsarama slip-up to get out either, so what do I know?

    – Getting back to Jessica Jones, EP Melissa Rosenberg talked to Deadline about the new series, what the plans are for Season 2, and how the show would have been different if it had actually landed on ABC as originally planned. Warning: there are some level of spoilers included.

    – io9, the sci-fi/comics/geek hub of the Gawker blog empire, is being downgraded from having its own site and will be folded into the Gizmodo hub in the near future. Bummer. The site’s content backlog should still be accessible through the new Gizmodo setup.

    – Dear Zack Snyder & David Goyer: if Mark Millar is saying you went too over-the-top with violence in your story, then guess what? You probably went too far.

    – When it comes to listening to directors talk about the movie they just finished making, you rarely hear them say things like, “I didn’t know what the hell I was doing.” Especially from a director like Peter Jackson on a logistically nightmarish project like The Hobbit trilogy. But apparently that was the case. I guess instead of looking at them as failures we should be astounded they actually made it all the way to the screen in the first place?

    Greg Matiasevich

    Greg Matiasevich has read enough author bios that he should be better at coming up with one for himself, yet surprisingly isn't. However, the years of comic reading his parents said would never pay off obviously have, so we'll cut him some slack on that. He lives halfway between Baltimore and Washington D.C., is the co-host (with Mike Romeo) of the Robots From Tomorrow podcast, posts on his Tumblr blog, and can be followed on Twitter at @GregMatiasevich.

      The comment section of the Millar article is funny

      • Patrick Gizinski

        I do think it’s funny that people don’t understand the difference of hyper violence like a character say, Hit-Girl vs. Superman. Context of character, and story definitely are important.

        • Robert Mayland

          Well we are talking about the guy who wrote the Ultimates.

          Cap cuts off a guys head with his shield while shouting about what the A stands for.

          Also the Wasp flashes the Hulk.

          • Patrick Gizinski

            Yeah true, and even Millar himself says he’s dipped into that pool. However I think that’s where context of story and character come in. These weren’t pre-established heroes outside of name and title. The ultimate version of these characters were created by Millar so really they could be whatever he wanted them to be.

            And you could argue the same for Snyder’s Superman, however, very little of Superman’s adaptions have drifted from the beacon of hope and inspiration to others that he’s always been.

            • Robert Mayland

              Well how much those interpretations ring hollow to a person depends on how they feel about that character.

              Millar has always had a Waidian attachment to Superman.

              It’s why he keeps writing Superman Knockoffs like Superior,
              Huck, and Jupiter’s Circle.

              I just think him complaining about the neck snapping in Man of Steel sounds oddly reminiscint of people who complained about him turning Captain America into a head lopping right winger.

    • Patrick Gizinski

      Man the irony of Mark Millar writing something like that, is well…. you pointed it out.

      But I can’t say I don’t agree with him.
