Wolverine & The Fast Improving Animated Series

So when on Earth did Marvel Animation get good again?

Last I checked, the Fantastic Four toon was ass, and the direct to DVD features weren’t good…and then this Wolverine & The X-Men toon looked bad too.

But then The Spectacular Spider-Man hit….and shy of it’s theme song….it’s REALLY good.

And now a new trailer hit for Wolverine & The X-Men that looks….honestly, kinda great. Sure, I don’t like Wolverine being the focus, but the animation and scope looks unrivaled.

Wolverine & The X-Men hits Nickelodeon in Spring 2009.

This Is The Stuff Of Nightmares…

When the 3rd, and possibly final trailer for The Dark Knight hit theaters attached to Iron Man this past Thursday (and officially on the web on Sunday), a lot of people noticed a half second glimpse of Harvey Dent post scarring….effectively making him Two Face.

Of course, we’re all wondering…what does the other side hold?

Over at the years long running comic rumors column Lying In The Gutters, it looks like they’ve got it.

Another Week, Another NIN Album…

Considering I’ve seemingly written this post a few times before, I’ll save us some effort.  Me in the writing pile, you in the reading.

In what should come as NO surprise following the massive first weekend for Iron Man ($200+ million worldwide, 94% Rotten Tomatoes Rating), more Marvel movies are on their way.

But I don’t think anyone expected the slate to get announced this early.

Marvel this morning (getting Monday started right!) in their First Quarter stock report revealed the release date of the next four films from Marvel Studios.

What are they?

  • Iron Man 2 – April 3, 2010
  • Thor – June 4, 2010
  • The First Avenger: Captain America – May 6, 2011
  • The Avengers  – July 2011

So I guess we can look forward to another 3 years of Blast-O-Rama being full of comic movie updates. *sigh*  I try to diversify, people!

Going From Judd Apatow To Michael Bay: Not A Good Move

I’m going to buck the trend of the interweb and say…I really didn’t mind Transformers.

Sure, it was a stupid movie. Sure, Michael Bay shot it like it was a bad music video. And sure, the human parts sucked ass.

But I liked seeing shiny robots wreck shit.

Anywhosle, after Transformers made something like $14 Billion, they’re working on Transformers 2.

Who are they apparently courting to star?

Why it’s Superbad and Knocked Up star Jonah Hill!

Talk about an odd choice.  Unless he and Optimus Prime are shooting cock jokes back and forth for an hour.  In which case, reserve me a seat, FANDANGO!
