‘Slingshot’ Mini Digital Series Set To Launch On December 13th
Guess this'll help pass the time till the SHIELD returns in January. I just have to download the app.
Certainly a cool surprise.
Lol at the rename. Guess they thought calling it Yo-Yo sounded silly.
Well in the comics Slingshot is her superhero name.
Wonder why they went with Yo-Yo in the show.
because yo-yo was her REAL name in the comics ... but that was too stupid for television, so they renamed her elena and used yo yo as a codename
also ... bad news ...
same shit as machinima´s combiner wars
I was not excepting this to happen. Some more stuff like would be nice at times down the road.
If this was an hour-long thing, I would have waited for another time to watch. If it was a half hour thing, I would watch it.
Being 3-6 minutes? I’m good with that. I doesn’t feel like enough time to tell a story like that, but I can’t wait to see what comes out of it.
And looking at the app, I think I can see why they might have gone that way. Most of its reviews are either 1 or 5 stars.
Except this is being made by Marvel, who has done a great job with there stuff right now (compared to DC's attempts). If Marvel was letting Machinima make this, then there would be cause for concern.
yeah well ... DC is also quite talented, and vixen still sucked ... having the same runtime
Agreed. I taught this'd be fun initially but the 3 -6 minutes an ep runtime is a killer. Vixen was dreadful simply because it had no time to tell a story.
Nice, and for a character with a weird codename.
You know even if this isn't that great, at least it was nice to see a character like this headline their own series. Now if only somebody could give something like this to Hawkeye or Black Widow.
Plus, I think we should look at this like one of those One-Shots split into smaller parts that work to make a whole. And considering the 6 episodes could have 6 minutes each, this could be a 36 minute episode. Enough time to possibly tell a story in that amount of time, and anything left unanswered could be addressed in SHIELD if need be.
Comic version is Yo-Yo Rodriguez aka Slingshot.
Ya know I've re-thought it, and while it certainly won't be anything amazing, this could be fun. Unlike Vixen, Slingshot is a character we've already been introduced to and has been developed. And from the look of things, the supporting cast of this will just be characters from S.H.I.E.L.D. instead of new characters. Thus, the show won't have to try to introduce and develop a new cast and storyline, but just give us a fun little adventure with ones we already know.

Seems like the series is uploaded on Marvel's youtube page as well in case people want to check it out.
Just watched them all on Youtube and it was a fun thing to watch.
It's a fun short series that made me like Yo Yo even more. Hope we can get more web series like this for the other characters of the MCU.
I watched the first episode while I was on break at work. I could barely hear half the episode because I was trying to keep the volume down.
I think the Present Day stuff in the first episode has to be after Winter Finale since Daisy seems to be back with SHIELD here. Her mission does make sense since we that never got taken care of.
Say what? Oh well, I guess I downloaded the ABC app for nothing then. I'll hold on to it anyways and just watch this from there in the future.
Hawkeye next please. And maybe make the episodes a bit longer for a guy like him?
