And my buddy and I were talking after the movie...what does this movie do to TF continuity? What is Canon in the TF world?
Its a teen and older flick, not a kids movie. See the animated cartoon for a kids version. As for continuity, this is the issue with anything that moves from a book to the big screen. Spiderman has the same issues, X-Men have the same issues...heck, Star Wars is about the only fantasy stomping ground where the film and books don't clash and even within the world of star wars there are some questionable continuity issues. I would have loved to see the movie just copy the old marvel comics, but I'm also pleased witht he movie that was put out. In the end, isn't it just about whether or not you were entertained? In the words of Maximus - Are you not entertained!?
