The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.
In this edition, a new video essay from Patrick (H) Willems wonders what the point is of having R-rated superhero movies like Joker, Birds of Prey, and more. Plus, stuntmen react to the fight sequences from Charlize Theron‘s hard-hitting spy thriller Atomic Blonde, and another installment of the Disney Studio Tour checks out the historic Ink & Paint Lab where classic animated movies were made.

UPDATE: I would like to thank the NAVY SEALS for reading my post.
We were so close to posting two Steven Seagal items in a single month. It would have made for a Slashfilm record and depressing office party. The contemplative martial artist marinated with MTV on the status of Under Siege 3, the (only?) vehicle that would return him to theaters. As you might expect, Seagal has put a lot of thought into where his John McClane, the Navy Seal chef Casey Rybeck, is headed…
“I personally want it to be something more modern. [long pause] In other words, [long pause] I wouldn’t mind if it was about something more mystical or [five minute pause] maybe extraterrestrial in nature. Some real government top secrets instead of just the typical.” [365 day pause]
His proposal was caught on video. Reliably, the actor says there are offers on the table. We previously wondered if Sylvester Stallone was taking Rambo V in a similar direction when he said he wanted to change genres and go “surreal.” Based on recent news of that project moving forward, it seems unlikely. Meanwhile, Jean-Claude’s gone meta- to decent reviews, and Arnold’s still wrapped up with California leaving John Davis’s Predator 3 a pipe dream. Is Seagal the man to defend our planet from space invaders? He sure kicked Eric Bogosian’s egomaniacal ass the last time around.
Discuss: Interested? What’s the ideal plot for Under Siege 3?
