I think it'd be cool if Big

I think it'd be cool if Big Bang Theory could eventually put up some CoT logos in Stewart's new comic book store. It might also be funny if we saw Kara (in the new Supergirl TV show) playing CoT during her spare time. I realize they'd more likely have her playing DCUO but still it'd be funny to see her play a real superhero MMO. ;)

Actually, it'd be more funny

Actually, it'd be more funny if Kara/Supergirl was playing City of Titans and wasn't incredibly good at playing the game. Not incompetent, by any means, just more sort of middling, to show that just because she's from Krypton doesn't mean she's automatically the best at everything.

Insert funny scene of "don't know my own strength sometimes" of smashing a keyboard or crushing a game controller during a really intense moment of playing, after which she can no longer keep playing effectively, and you're just about set.

Actually there used to be a Statesman poster in the shop if you look - still is last I remember but it's been a while it's to the rear of the shop where they browse comics as I recall.

Stewart has even been known to wear a Statesman logo t-shirt.

The Big Bang Theory show has displayed various CoH/CoV posters and logos for years. Even one of its most often recurring background characters is informally known as "Captain Sweatpants" because he always wears the same Statesman star T-shirt in every ep he's in. Note there's a CoH standee in the first pic below and a CoV shirt on the wall in the fourth:

That's EXACTLY why I think it would be cool if they'd eventually show off some CoT logos as well. ;)

I believe you might be remembering Captain Sweatpants.
He has the Statesman star on his shirt every time you see him.
I don't recall Stewart having worn it.

Edit: ah yep that guy. Thanks for the screenshots Lothic.

My favorite though I don't have a shot of it is when Penny spends the night in Leonard's room "the morning after" there is a City of Heroes original game box sitting in some sort of basket right next to the bed. It wasn't on screen nearly as long as the ones in the comic book store and so was trickier to spot but still fun to see.
Agreed. Someone from MWM should reach out to Chuck Lorre after the game launches and see about slipping some art/logos in.

I used to work props in

I used to work props in movies years ago. We generally used promo stuff from agencies we were tight with. These are groups that have already vetted out the legal and copyright issues and fees and such.

You would probably want to reach out to the props guys - You'd want to hit up the Prop master who I believe is listed as Scott L. London.

Whenever something is on a TV show or movie -- it is never there by coincidence. In fact if it's there - - someone in the props team decided it needed to be. Same with costume and wardrobe. They've already vetted the copyrights for the image or trademark, etc., or they're getting paid as part of a promo deal or something.

You want your logo visible - this is the guy to get it done.

The working story behind the all the CoX items on Big Bang Theory was that the cast and crew were always the big fans of the game. Apparently Paragon Studios and the Devs of CoH never really did anything official to get those items to the show - it was always the people working on the show who proactively got those items for themselves.

So if that's the case it would likely just be a matter of making sure that someone like Scott L. London was aware that City of Titans even exists. If he knows there's a game like this on the horizon he might be willing to use the existing logos for upcoming eps of the show.
