GREEN LANTERN Shining On The Silver Screen

Man, the superhero movies don’t stop coming, do they?

Officially confirmed today, Green Lantern, the emerald-hued DC hero will be getting a film of his own, with shooting scheduled to begin this September in Melbourne, Australia.

Taking the reigns behind the camera, Mr. Martin Campbell, who you may remember best as the director of the supremely kick ass Bond reboot Casino Royale.

They’re currently aiming for a December 17th, 2010 release via Warner Bros.

Unfortunately, that is ALL we know so far.  Who’s gonna be Hal? What’s it going to look like? IS THE SCRIPT EVEN DONE?

Presumably all these questions, and more, will be answered between now and September. You’d hope.

But hey, no matter what happens, just be happy we aren’t getting that crappy comedic take on the film, starring Jack Black that was being discussed a few years back.

Create Your Own Donut, And Win $12K!

Here’s another great way to kill time on the internet.

Do you like donuts?

Do you like winning $12,000?

This is the site for you, as Dunkin Donuts is looking for YOU, yes, YOU to create their next big donut. Just mess around with some different controls, make your flavor combos, and submit it, and WHAM, you could win 12 grand and have your donut featured in shops across the country.

That donut up top is my creation.  I call it The Smore.  Marshmellow filling, chocolate frosting, and graham cracker bits.  Sounds tasty.

…and makes me sad it’s not real.

Things I Should Hate But Don’t: Wolverine Art Appreciation Month

Alright nerds, earn your cred with this bit of triva: What Marvel hero is celebrating his 35th Anniversary this April?

Any guesses?

Anyone?

Ok, It’s Wolverine.  And sure, while he doesn’t need the exposure, what with the movie and being in basically every comic anyway, Marvel has launched a really cool way to celebrate this anniversary.

How? Through the time honored tradition of variant covers. But not just any variant covers, they’re ones that show Logan as interpreted in various art styles.  Sounds wacky, but it turned out awesome, like the Van Gogh style Wolvie above.

My only complaint? The odd mix of titles this is being done on…check the list:

AGENTS OF ATLAS #3

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #590

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #592

CAPTAIN BRITAIN AND MI13 #12

DAREDEVIL #118

EXILES #1

GHOST RIDER #34

HULK #11

INCREDIBLE HERCULES #128

MOON KNIGHT #29

MS. MARVEL #38

RUNAWAYS #9

SECRET WARRIORS #3

UNCANNY X-MEN #508

WAR MACHINE #5

WOLVERINE: FIRST CLASS #14

X-MEN: LEGACY #223

Like…4 of those titles feature Wolverine, max.  Why couldn’t we have gotten a sweet art book, instead?  I guess they’re using it to highlight some less read titles, but ultimately, what an odd idea.
