Captain America HAS A DIRECTOR!

The latest in the round of comic films to hit the silver screen just got a little bit closer to being made.

Today, Marvel Studios officially announced that Joe Johnston will be helming The First Avenger: Captain America as it makes it’s slow trot towards releasing in 2011.

Based on Johnston’s track record (which includes highlights such as The Rocketeer and lowlights including Jurassic Park III), I’m pretty indifferent towards this pick.  But let’s be honest, it really comes down to the script, and who they put in the suit.

Hopefully they make a solid choice.

My preference? Let’s throw Matty Damon under the chainmail and cowl.

Batman’s Coming For You, NOLAN!

Ok, so after making nearly a BILLION dollars worldwide with The Dark Knight, you’d presume that many a person would be going after Christopher Nolan.

But would you think it Batman?

That’s right, the Turkish city of Batman is suing Christopher Nolan over the use of it’s name in this past summer’s hit.

You’d figure the mayor of the city, which is known for an unusally high suicide rate, would work through the typical chain of command on these things, like say…DC Comics, Warner Brothers, etc.

But nearest as I can tell, they REALLY have a bone to pick with the guy who made Memento. Go figure.

So About Those New Macs…

I know you’re probably wondering…

I’m popping back in with blogs…why haven’t I commented on Apple’s refresh of their notebooks, highlighted with the new MacBook and MacBookPro?

Well, strap yourself in, because here’s my no holds barred reaction.

I want to have sex with them.

Enjoy that mental image!

Thirst Quenchin’ Goodness Brought To You By Axl & The Gang

Ok, so by some people’s standards, we might be seeing the end of times.

The Stock Market is plumetting; depending on your political leanings, our next candidate might be the anti-christ; and a movie about freaking talking dogs is on top of the box office.

Get ready to throw some tinfoil on, as the Apocalypse might really be headed our way.

Why do I say this?

Guns ‘N Roses’ CHINESE DEMOCRACY IS FINALLY COMING OUT.

Not a hoax, not an imaginary story. After 15 years of delays, Axl’s magnum opus (which I’m willing to bet is a load of shit) is finally hitting shelves as a Best Buy exclusive on November 23rd.

I know, you’re saying to yourself…How do we know it’s real? Best Buy actually has listings for it on their website COMPLETE WITH TRACKLISTINGS AND ARTWORK! End of an era folks!

Some of my more net-savvy readers may remember earlier this year when Dr. Pepper as a publicity stunt offered Free D-Pep if Axl should release the long-delayed GNR followup this year.

In an amazing response from today’s corporate America, in a statment to MTV.com, Dr. Pepper CONFIRMED they’re going to live up to their promise.

So sure, your stocks might be in the shitter, but remember this.  We’re finally getting a new Guns ‘N Roses album.  And some Dr. Pepper to wash the shitty aftertaste down.

Splattered Across the Web: New Star Trek

So you might remember earlier this year, when Paramount sent out promotional images of the upcoming GI JOE flick to all of the major movie sites.

Not too surprisingly, they’ve done the same today with the first images from JJ Abrams‘ relaunch of the Star Trek franchise.  Being the good net pal I am, I’ve scooped them all up and posted them in a gallery below.

Personally, I’m going to be coming into this flick as a strong non-fan of the Trek universe, but given the cast, I think I’ll walk away from the movie having enjoyed it.

What do you think?
