Henry Cavill is the new SUPERMAN!

He might do.

From the press release:
The film will be directed by Zack Snyder, who stated, “In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time, and I am honored to be a part of his return to the big screen. I also join Warner Bros., Legendary and the producers in saying how excited we are about the casting of Henry. He is the perfect choice to don the cape and S shield.”

Charles Roven, Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder are the producers of the film. The screenplay is being written by David S. Goyer based on a story by Goyer and Nolan. Thomas Tull and Lloyd Phillips are serving as executive producers.

Cavill recently wrapped production on “The Cold Light of Day” and stars in the upcoming “Immortals,” opening this fall.

Targeted for release in December 2012, the new Superman movie will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

WONDER WOMAN: TV or not TV? That's the question.

Back in October 2010 it was announced that David E. Kelley was working on a pilot for a new Wonder Woman series.
In early January, it appeared that it wasn't going to happen.
But now this past week it seems to be on again.

I'm not sure how excited I am. I would love a Wonder Woman series. But the description seems a bit off:
“Wonder Woman — aka Diana Prince — is a vigilante crime fighter in L.A. but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.”
Still, it has also been mentioned that Kelley's take:
"...incorporated the superhero’s signature lasso, cuffs, and plane in the script, and insiders said it was a serious, non-campy take on the DC Comics character."
I'm all for adaptations. And understand changes will be made. My main concern is that they'll use the "Wonder Woman" brand/name to sell the show, and then just have it be Diana Prince, Super Spy. Without any powers or Amazon heritage.

I guess we'll see.

Of course, optioning the pilot means nothing. The show may never even get past that stage if NBC doesn't like what they see...


SUPERMAN/BATMAN: Public Enemies 09.29.09

The next DC Universe Animated Original Movie, SUPERMAN/BATMAN PUBLIC ENEMIES comes out September 29th! Here's the official trailer:

Not much to it. But Comic Book Resources has a two-minute clip from the movie! I stole if for ya:

"Superman/Batman: Public Enemies" features a star-studded voice cast filling the roles of super heroes and villains alike, including Kevin Conroy (Batman), Tim Daly (Superman), Clancy Brown (Lex Luthor), Allison Mack (Power Girl), Xander Berkeley (Captain Atom), Ricardo Chavira (Major Force), John C. McGinley (Metallo), LeVar Burton (Black Lightning), CCH Pounder (Amanda Waller) and a host of others.
Superman looks pretty violent in that, eh?

Here's a funny: The embed code for the trailer comes from the official movie site, but it's sourced out from MySpace. Warner Bros. is also doing some sort of (I didn't read the details) contest. When you click on that link: it takes you to Facebook. Wonder if the right hand knows what the left hand it doing? Heh.

Wolverine Boxers

A few weeks ago, Anonymous left a response to my Super: HERO underwear from aussieBum! post from last year where he says: "I would like to see Wolverine jockey shorts or briefs for men like myself to wear."

Well, being anonymous and all, I have no idea what a man like himself might be, mean or wear...but there are Wolverine boxers out there. Webundies has two!!

Don't say I never did anything for ya!! :-P



Oh my gosh!! You have no idea how excited I am about this!!! To have Hippolyta as Wonder Woman anything!! I'd love an action figure. But this'll do for now. Although I'm not really sure how I'm going to be able to afford it. But February is still a few months away...

Random Crap & Thoughts

So, I was trying to come up with a new Donna Troy themed header, so ComicsAllTooReal's Chris would get off my back (not really, cuz he bites well). And somehow I went off on some bizarre tangent and this came out of it:
Don't even ask me, cuz I have no idea...
Why is it: that in this day and age, when most brand new TV series come out in box sets priced around $40-50, and you can usually find them on sale for $20-40...That Star Trek: Voyager, a show I really want on DVD, still costs over $60 a season, on sale!!?
WTF? Doesn't Paramount realize they might actually make some money on their stuff if it was affordable? Because I'm going to end up buying it used, and they won't get a penny of my money...

Speaking of used:
I was at McKay's (awesome used book, DVD, CD, video game store) a couple of days ago and picked up a couple cool things.
I finally got Kenneth Johnson's follow up to V, V: The Second Generation. If I read books more regularly, I'd be excited to jump into this. But it'll probably collect dust for a least a few months...
I also picked up an old Catwoman novel, which from what I can figure out online might be subtitled "Tiger Hunt," but there's nothing on my copy to indicate that.
I also picked up Showcase Presents: Legion of Super Heroes Vol. 2 for $4! I don't love the silver-age Legion enough to pay $17 for it, but $4 is worth it. LOL

Oh yeah, and HAPPY EASTER!!
