Some Updates

February 10, 2010

A couple of wacky things have been going on lately.  Well, wacky probably isn’t the right word, but for some reason it’s the word I’ve chosen.  Here we go:

Christopher Nolan, director of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight will “have a sort of hands-on/godfather role in the upcoming Superman reboot.”  Firstly, Superman reboot?  Must’ve missed that one with all the talk of hitting the retcon button on good ol’ Peter Parker.

Speaking of which, they announced a release date for the new Spiderman movie (July 3, 2012) as well as stating that the movie will be in 3D.  James Cameron, what have you started?

Despite having bad luck in the title department, there’s a wicked Avatar: The Last Airbender trailer.  And by wicked, I mean WICKED.  Actually, I think they’ve dropped the Avatar part of the title altogether.  Good move.

Apparently, Futurama got renewed/brought back to life.  Seriously?  When the hell did this happen?  Why does everyone I know hate me so much that they wouldn’t have told me this by now?  Yeesh!

Lastly, I’m not really a big Superman guy.  Considering that 40% of these newsy things are about Superman suggests otherwise, but trust me, it’s mostly academic.  Regardless, DC announced recently that Superman will have an upcoming story-arc called ‘War of the Supermen.’ Without getting into the details that are required to explain even that title, what’s cool is that this ‘War’ is going to last 100 minutes.  It’s a 4 issue arc with each issue lasting 25 minutes, and all four issues coming out in May.

Happy Wednesday!
