Tom Holland is our new Spider-Man...but who's Tom Holland? (Tomorrow Daily 197)
On today's show, the Philae lander is awake and it's talking to us on Earth.
Also we check out a little tiny emotional robot that is bringing in the dawn of the age of robots.
And oh my god, we finally have someone cast as Spiderman.
Little old Spiderman, we'll tell you who it is.
Greetings citizens of the internet, welcome to tomorrow Daily the best game talk-show in the known universe.
I'm Ashley Esqueda, biggest dork in the universe.
As described by Khail.
I guess I don't get to be Spiderman.
That's what we're learning today.
You know what though, you were on the shortlist.
That's always great.
You were on the shortlist.
I don't know how to flip.
That's better than most!
Pretty sure Logan taught me how to flip.
All right, so can we, let's talk who this is.
Yeah, let's talk about Spider Man.
Let's hit it.
It's Tom Holland, there you go.
[LAUGH] I don't need-
Why don't they just get right out there in front of it?
I don't need to lead it up.
Do we have a picture or footage of Tom Holland at all?
Some great Tom Holland footage?
Let's show her Tom Holland because I'm sure you don't know him by name.
It wasn't like, there was Asa Butterfield who was [CROSSTALK] But here's Tom Holland.
Look at him.
They're obviously going for a younger Spider-Man, which is great.
They're probably gonna keep him young for the whole series.
We're gonna see Tom Holland First in Civil War, which is, he's jumping over to the Marvel cinematic universe for a cameo.
We're also gonna see him in his own Spiderman movie in 2017, in July, in summer, 2017.
A couple years on that, okay.
There you go.
Apparently Kevin Feige said that Tom's screen test Was special so like it was pretty fantastic.>> [CROSSTALK] Maybe he learned some flips from Logan too.>> Yeah, we all learn flips from Logan.
And that's his signature.
He's pretty young but it's gonna be like two years until the movie comes out.
So, right now, how old would you say he looks?
I was, it's 'cause I'm an old lady, but I would say he looks like 15.
He looks like 15.
He's actually 19 years old.
I cannot believe that.
By 2017, when his own movie comes out, he's going to be 21.
Well I should mention really briefly that this footage is from an interview about The Impossible, which was a disaster movie.
It was about a sadami movie, with Ewan McGregor, and Naomi Watts.
So I grabbed this, because he was talking about acting with Obi Wan Kenobi and stuff.
And like, so it was kinda cool that he Kinda, he respects all of these like, kinda older actors and stuff.
So, I'm really curious to see it.
Like, a lot of people pegged him as a really good dramatic actor really young, so maybe he'll bring something new.
I guess we'll see.
Obviously, he's gonna be playing Peter Parker, so we're gonna get our.
Classic Spider-Man story.
I think a lot of people were worried about that.
Then the Sony leak had more information about like they didn't want him to be gay.
Must not be.
And they didn't want him to be black.
But now it's totally okay.
And the great thing is is Marvel's kinda side-stepping that now by, because in the thing, it says like.
Peter Parker has to be white and can't be, but if Marvel indicates in the comic books that he is anything other then that,
Then he can be.
And now they're saying isn't it Miles Morales is Spider-Man.
They just announced it a couple of days ago.
Like Miles Morales is Spider Man now.
What do you mean?
Hes not like a separate off shoot Spider Man its like he is Spider Man.
So its like that was an official announcement that was like an official announcement so now their saying like that
Maybe they'll go forward with that
Peter Parker really only exists to me currently now in the cinematic universe, so this is cool
I think it'd be great to have a younger looking spider man, instead of a
a super model Andrew Garfield
Yeah, or Chris
That's in college
Chris Evans in like, because they're all like in their 30's and it's like, it will be nice to have that sort of fresh young blood into that mix.
And I think especially for Civil War that would be perfect.
Even though he'll be 21.
But he's still so young.
I still wanted Ace of
Butterfield cause his name is funny ok what's your story?
I want to kill anonymous well let us talk about the hashtag of the day first which is #TDSPIDEY
and ee want you guys to tell us is this a good casting decision did you see this kid?
In that movie, in the Impossibles?
Did you, I had no idea who he was.
Do I think it's a good casting decision?
From what I've read, I think it might not be bad.
He seems to be a good dramatic actor.
Maybe he could pull off some of the more like, heavier aspects of being a kid who has these amazing powers and has to deal with that.
I think that 's the story we all like,
Yeah and if so, maybe he can bring a little gravitas to that.
So here's what I'm going to do, I'm going to get to work on making a son and then I think my son should be cast as Spider-Man.
We're going to go a little bit more, obviously I've got a little bit of a darker hue.
So that may work out.
Phase 5 MCU.
I meant it.
I buy this.
And then I'm gonna play Crave the Hunter.
I still maintain I should play Craven the Hunter.
So there you go.
I would cast you.
And you can play Spider Gwen.
I would cast you.
For what it's worth, I would cast you as Craven Hunter.
I would do it.
If I was the Kevin Fahey of this earth.
I would cast him, but you know what, there's only one man who can play Gray Matter, and that's Khail Anonymous.
Get Khail Anonymous on the phone.
I'd let you be Venom.
I would do that.
I'd totally do that.
All right, let's talk about the dawn of the age of robots, because this is kind of a big deal.
About a year ago, Softbank announced this little robot named Pepper, and we have some video footage of Pepper.
This is Pepper.
Pepper's super adorable.
Inspired by Astro Boy, the look of Astro Boy which is kind of awesome.
But soft bank finally sold these.
They went on sale to the public in Japan a couple of days ago and they sold a thousand of them as the first Month's run of a thousand sold out in less than a minute.
And these are not cheap robots, you guys.
These are like $1600 robots.
Yeah, 198,000 Yen.
So what can this little guy do?
So interestingly enough it's not going to make you dinner.
It's not going to clean your house.
It's not meant to be a task robot where it does a thing for you, it's actually meant to be more of an emotional robot.
And I thought this was really interesting that It looks like we the public are going to accept emotional robots first before and, and potentially this is sort of the first time that we've kinda like all embraced a robot that's mean for just being a companion.
So there's an aging population in Japan there are also a lot of singles in Japan who choose not to be with anybody in a long term relationship.
So this is a great option for a lot of those people who are like, well, I like companionship, but I don't want to be bogged down by a long term relationship.
Or maybe I'm a little older, I don't really have anybody, So I'm gonna buy this robot and have it hang out with me.
So, here's what Pepper can do.
It can communicate with you.
It can follow verbal commands.
You can ask it questions, things like that.
And it can also read human emotions and respond accordingly.
SoftBank says it can tell when you're sad, it can tell when you're happy.
And the little tablet on the front of it, it conveys the robot's emotions as well.
So it you ignore Pepper, it will be very irritated with you.
And if you pay it a lot of attention then you'll be very happy.
Sounds like a girlfriend or a boyfriend.
It develops over time, it develops kind of a little personality over time, it's just pretty interesting.
So sold out number of [INAUDIBLE] They're gonna do, the goal is to release these Pepper robots, 1,000 of them, every month for sale because that's as manufacturing as they can keep up with.
So, would you buy one?
I totally want one.
No, I have a Facebook account.
Roll around the house.
I already experience too many people's emotions.
I need a servant robot.
You mean Rosie robot?
Like, that's what robots are for.
Is they do things.
But don't you want like a sassy friend robot?
Like cuz that's the the thing I've always wanted like a cool.
Like Rosie the robot did your laundry and made your dinner and stuff.
So it was also kinda like she had a little bit of attitude.
That was the thing I loved the most about Rosie Robert.
She had a personality.
She was cool.
But, you were talking about both.
You already said, it was a servant and a. I don't need attitude in my house.
I also have a cat.
I've got enough attitude there.
I mean, get a dog.
Well, I guess, you can't in Japan.
I just think, it's very interesting, what you said about how emotion robots seem to be the first thing that is gonna pick up.
And, to me, that's shocking because like I said.
If you feel like a robot, it's like a servant thing assembling your cars or waiting on you or.
And, a lot of the robots that we've talked about Have, not all, but have had an action.
They're serving a purpose.
They're a rescue bot or they're a serving robot.
That's a good point.
It might be the culture.
Specifically Japanese culture might be more willing to accept an emotional robot.
Like a friend as a robot as opposed to only wanting it for service.
I think I want a little of both.
Like I want a robot that can help me do some stuff but I also want a robot with you know like a sassy robo friend.
Producer Logan do you need a robot friend?
No I have a girlfriend.
Did you just call your girlfriend a robot?
No, but she-
But at least there's a, at least-
I get it.
Again, with the emotional robot, like, there's no real endgame and there's no, like, future but with the girlfriend, there's a future that you're
You're connecting with a person, you're learning.
There's so much out of an actual human relationship.
I can learn so much about a robot.
This is filling a void.
This robot is filling a void, and it's a very strange to be filled by a robot.
Or it's just a really fun
It's an oddity.
It's like oh, I bought this to be weird.
It's like a little spectacle in my house.
Yeah, they make like dancing robots.
It's an icebreaker.
It's a conversation piece.
What's it, 1600?
It's not that bad.
But it's a little pricey.
It is pricey.
You're dropping 1600 dollars on a little robot that is not gonna do anything for you except talk to you and be your pal.
How much is this, though?
Like a thou-- like 829?
So that's what I'm saying.
Is like a cool little like, friend over, you know, this god awful tether.
Yeah, No I get it.
I'm in my Lewis Black mode today.
You're in like fighting crime Batman mode today, which we'll get to.
But before that, we have to talk about Philae really quickly.
So we have discussed on multiple occasions The Philae lander that went off.
Remember the sling shotting, and the Rosetta spacecraft?
Then they put the little lander down on the comet.
Then it died, the battery died, because it landed kind of in the shade on two of it's legs.
It couldn't get sun.
It's so exciting.
It is now communicating with the ESA.
It's out there.
It's still in a spot where it can get sunlight, about three hours a day Which is enough for it to charge up, which is pretty cool.
And now they're saying, okay, so it's awake, what's next?
Let's try and restore enough energy and communication capability to get the lander to drill into the comet, which was its original intention.
And collect data about what Comet 67P is made of.
This is the stuff, this is beginning of the universe stuff.
They want to know what is in that comet.
So they're going to start with non-mechanical tools.
They're gonna do a couple of, maybe, some surface scrapes, things like that that don't take up a lot of battery power and then try to scale it up to The big things like the hammer and the drill and if they can do that their gonna be really really excited.
Yeah they'll accomplish their mission so.
But its a very short window they only have until August so this comet is hurtling towards, close to the sun right now.
And so it's getting a lot of sun, and that's fine.
But then in August, it passes the sun and hurdles back out into deep space.
So at that point, you're gonna have diminishing returns on sunlight.
Basically, it;'s like they've got a very small window of time in the sense of they might have months, but they have a very small window of time to collect all this data, get everything done.
So, good luck ESA, good luck Philae.
I'm glad Philae is alive.
I was so excited when I saw the tweet, because he has his own twitter account.
He's like, "I'm alive; I'm here; I'm still on the comet." I was just like, "Oh, Philae is alive.
Yay!">>There is some cute fan art out there, too, so very cool.>>There is some really good, cute fan art.
But that's it for our headlines.
We'll be right back.
It's Tuesday, which means we've got to talk about new releases.
Kale is going to lose his mind at the first one because he is already playing it.
And then, of course, we have your user feedback, and our [UNKNOWN] of the day, so don't click away.
This is Tomorrow Daily.
Welcome back to the show, we've returned.
It's Tuesday, it's time to tell you all the things that are gonna empty our wallet and yours.
It's new releases.
Now, if you're not friends with [UNKNOWN], you probably don't know how much he abhors the hype train, for anything.
This man will not get on a hype train if somebody put a gun to his head.
No, he won't do it.
So you can imagine killed feelings when Batman: Arkham Knight reviews started rolling out and they were like, this game is amazing!
It had 9.5, 9, 10.
People were going nuts for this game.
Cal got it last night, can I have your non-hype train review?
It's like one of the best games I've ever played.
Kale's on his own hype train now.
It's so good.
The whole tagline that they have is be the Batman and I've never felt so.
Like the Batman.
It's crazy how you feel like you're actually doing all this stuff and you feel so cool in it.
It's fluid and it's fun and there hasn't been a time when I think, I could stop right here and move on to something else.
You just want to keep going.
It's so cool.
The voice acting like this is [UNKNOWN] again.
Completely out of the park.
I can't wait to go home and play it.
I'm gonna go stream it.
On my own personal YouTube account.
It's just so much fun.
I know producer Logan was deciding whether or not he wants to even get this.
Unfortunately, he's not going to because he's going to spend money on a concert.
I think he should skip the concert even though it's like his favorite band.
Your enthusiasm alone is selling me on this game.
If I had never seen a lick of gameplay, I would be like, based on Kale's reaction to this, I have to buy this game, so I'm gonna pick it up tonight.
I knew it was something special when in the first shot, it starts playing this old,
I've got you under my skin, and then it's slowly zooming in to the Joker who's dead from the last one, and he's just smiling and he's on this thing, And you're just sitting there, and you're like, why isn't it moving forward?
What's going on?
And then you hit a button, and it goes, poof!
And you're like, what?!
And then you hold the button down, it goes, whoof, and you're burning the Joker in an incinerator, but you didn't realize it was that much interactivity.
So you know the second you have to burn the Joker at the beginning, that's gonna be a really cool game.
That's pretty rad.
Very interesting and fun, so.
I love it.
I love it!
I can't give it a rating, but 11 out of 10.
You gotta play it.
You gotta play it, but 11 out of 10, so far.
I've put in about 5 hours and I'm pretty excited about it.
And, you can always go to.
What's your stream name so, people can go watch?
I use YouTube streaming.
Go to my YouTube channel, K-H-A-I-L Anonymous.
Super easy, yeah, go watch it.
He's gonna YouTube stream it tonight, so you can watch it.
And then also coming out today is Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward.
This is the new expansion.
People are really excited about this.
I played Final Fantasy XIV.
I haven't been playing lately cuz we've been in Splatoon.
But, new jobs, some really good Astrologian.
There's some really great new jobs.
The new raid to the new dungeons, all sorts of new stuff.
I mean, all the stuff you'd expect from an MMO expansion.
And of course, you know, it's like all final fantasy based.
And they finally, once again, learned their lesson after the original launch of Final Fantasy 14, which flopped terribly.
They learn the lesson of, people want to see final fantasy stuff that they remember from other final fantasy games, they don't necessarily want like new, like crazy, I mean, there's a lot of new stuff in here too, but it's like, I want to be reminded of all the other cool final fantasy games I've played before.
And they are kind of, finally like, kind of locked into that and it's pretty rad.
So [UNKNOWN] I'm if I was leveling up to fifty
Yeah, but which one?
There's a Cid in every Final Fantasy.
So this is like a kind of Cid created for this particular world.
Oh you've got your own ship.
He's still an airship captain.
He's still an airship captain, he's still crazy, he's still like an engineer.
But yeah, it looks amazing.
I think I'm gonna pick this up, I'm still waiting.
I'm kind of on the fence about it.
Because I'm like, well how much am I really playing?
Do I need the expansion?
But then we're about to hit 50 so I'm like well, I mean I guess I might as well buy the expansion and keep going.
So, anyway that's coming out.
And then also coming out this weekend counter programming to all the Inside Out and Jurassic World, Ted 2 is coming out this weekend.
Which I'm gonna say this about Ted 2. Like the premise, I think it's funny, it reminds me of Legally Blonde 2. It's like the raunchy version of that movie if you've seen both, I don't know.
Anyway, Ted needs to become an act, he needs to be like declared a person to be able to have Kids with his wife.
I don't know.
He's a teddy bear.
He swears a lot, he does horrible things.
You can't just hate, you can't hate on a movie like this.
It has its place.
It's a summer, we just started throw like fun summer movie that you go to when you're bored.
And you go and you have like
There were a couple good laughs in the trailer.
I'm not expecting comedy gold.
I'm expecting to be like [LAUGH]
That was funny, I'm expecting to walk out of it and be like okay I was entertained.
Like I was entertained enough to pay for it.
[LAUGH] A fart joke didnt see that one coming.
No but I like it.
Yeah I might see it.
I might go not see it in theaters but maybe.
Yeah I might see it, I might not.
Like, years for me to throw that one in there in the mix.
I mean, it's real tough.
You gotta really be choosy about what movies you're seeing this summer because there's so many good ones.
Plus you've got Batman.
I'm not gonna, I'm busy.
He's busy being the Batman.
But that's it for new releases for this week, so without further ado, let's talk about you, user feedback.
All right, so yesterday we asked everybody to use the hashtag TDC and tell us what they would want to be transparent.
If they could make anything transparent, see through in real life.
And Lewis wrote in and said that tall guy that always sits in front of you in the cinema.
Look if you could make everybody see through at a concert.
That would be awesome.
From the back.
That'd be scary.
That'd be pretty rad.
You'd be like the only person there.
You feel like, but you hear all the people.
And then you see all the dirt on the ground.
That wouldn't be, that'd be kinda gross.
Maybe just make [UNKNOWN] headless.
That would also be really creepy.
Kurt wrote in and said, the see through hood being demoed on a concept Land Rover.
And then he had a YouTube video so here it is.
This is a transparent hood.
So, it's a virtual prototype that Land Rover is taking a look at right now, but it would let you see right through you hood to the ground.
Which is very awesome.
Wow, very cool.
Well, a lot of, so much good augmented in virtual reality stuff happening right now, like
Kel's been toeing this line for a year.
Just like, guys, it's gonna blow up, and now it's blowing up.
So, Kel's been right this whole time.
[UNKNOWN] Listen to me, you kids!
But yeah, you guys sent in some good user feedback.
And then of course there's a very final piece of user feedback, which is always our phonetographer for the day.
Dan wrote in, good old Dan.
I like to pretend that we're literally longtime friends with every person who writes in to this show.
Dan Ricen says, "Hey TD.
I took this a couple weeks ago from my trusty Galaxy S4 at what's basically the end of my road in Brighton England.
I work from home with only my cats for colleges and I was going a bit stir crazy so I went for a walk to clear my head.
This is what I found, Brighton Pier with a fun fair at the end.
It reminded me how awesome it is to live by the seaside.
It cheered me right up.
Then I went for ice cream by the sea, that helped more.
May the Force be with you always.
Dan from Brighton, thank you.
That is a delightful photo.
I hope that you also, after or before your ice cream by sea, you went to the fun fair and either maybe rode some rides or did some fun stuff.
Played some carnival games.
They're really laying it on thick with the Fun Fair.
It's a fun, yeah, I'm looking at the end of this pier, and I'm a little skeptical about how fun that fair looks.
But you might have been really far away, and maybe there's some really great stuff there.
Like what would you want to see at the Fun Fair?
Funnel cake, that's what I would go right for funnel cake.
To funnel cake?
I don't want ice cream, I'd want funnel cake.
You can have funnel cake at a carnival, it's so delicious.
What about you?
I'm scared of funnel cake.
As much as Ferris wheels?
Cale anonymous, terrified of Ferris wheels?
Which one more?
Which one more?
Probably Ferris wheels, since I've had nightmares about it.
All right, good.
Yeah, me, too.
So, there you go.
Thanks for showing us your terrifying fun fare.
No, but it was a really great photo.
I liked the seagull.
The seagull looks fake.
Seagull looks totally fake.
It looks like he Photoshopped in the seagull.
I think that's a Photoshop brush.
That means it's good.
So, well done.
