ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN Gets The ULTIMATE Creative Team!

I’ve already gone on record with my excitement over the new Ultimate Spider-Man animated series.

Taking the comic series that kept me interested in mainstream comics and turning it into an animated series under the supervision of it’s creative lead and writer, Brian Michael Bendis already sounds like a grand idea. But it seems that Marvel Entertainment is dead set on making this series absolutely perfect.

The first major nab was the team from Man at Action, a group of former comic book writers Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau and Steven T. Seagle, who after leaving the comic industry broke ground in action based cartoons with their series’ Ben 10 and Generator Rex.

Now? Possibly the ultimate coup. Paul Dini. The head of arguably the greatest American animated series of all time, Batman: The Animated Series, this now makes the forces behind Ultimate Spider-Man not just the best at writing the character, but the best at taking comics and properly translating them to the animated format.

Sure, I was bummed to see the unusually good Spectacular Spider-Man series meet its end, but with a team like this, I’m very excited to see the next form my all time favorite character takes.

Ultimate Spider-Man is set to debut on the DisneyXD network in Fall 2011.

YOGI BEAR Gets Even Worse

You know, I was willing to give this Yogi Bear movie the benefit of the doubt.

Sure, I’m the anger filled nerd ranting and raving about childhood being raped. Essentially proving the old adage about movie geeks on the internet being true.

But when Warner Bros releases a new poster like this, with that double entendre ridden of a tagline, YOU tell me I’m crazy.

Am I crazy? Am I really?

The Collected Works of LUCAS LEE!

I bet you thought that between the final volume of the comics and my review of the film, I was done talking about Scott Pilgrim.

You thought wrong.

And that’d be an appropriate transition, as today I have the pleasure of featuring a series of movie posters that you’d only see for seconds within Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

See, Ramona’s second evil-ex, Lucas Lee (Chris Evans) is an actor. And apparently, he’s wildly popular. With films such as You Just Don’t Exist, Let’s Hope There’s a Heaven and my personal favorite, Action Doctor, Lee has made himself a huge star in the world of Scott Pilgrim. And to commemorate his stunning acting resume, the art team behind Scott Pilgrim vs. the World really outdid themselves with each poster.

Chris Evans looks pitch perfect, and the posters are so well done that you’d think these movies were actually real.

Click through the gallery below for each poster, and get ready to head to chuckletown when it comes to the tag lines. EXCELLENT work.

BETWEEN TWO FERNS Places Carell vs. Galifinakis

Sure, I’m obviously with CoCo, but my favorite talk show going is the always awkward Between Two Ferns, hosted by alt-comedy god Zack Galifinakis.

For this latest episode, he’s joined by his Dinner With Schmucks co-star Steve Carell, and apparently, Carell had watched prior episodes.

Is MONSTERS The Next DISTRICT 9?

A movie I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about these past few months is Monsters, written and directed by Gareth Edwards.

Said to be a super realistic take on the giant monster genre, the comparisons to District 9 have been coming pretty steady, but there’s one major difference. Where District 9 was made for a “paltry” $8 Million, Monsters was made for $15,000!  I could afford that, if I were so crazy.

The official synopsis is as follows, and I’ve embeded a trailer (from IGN) below.

Six years ago previously, a NASA probe returning to earth with samples of an alien life form, crashed over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear, and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain “the creatures”… The story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.

What do you think, dear readers?
