FRIDAY, JULY 25

DOCTOR WHO---showrunner Steven Moffat said Peter Jackson may direct a future episode, “I think it will happen at some point. He’s still incredibly busy on The Hobbit. I’ve spoken to him face to face, and he would like to do one. I mean, he can do what the hell he likes – he owns New Zealand!”
Moffat said that Jackson, a big Doctor Who fan, was willing to take a Doctor Who villain as payment, “We give him a Dalek and then he’ll direct an episode."





AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON----photo released of Black Widow riding Harley-Davidson's first electric motorcycle, Project Lifestyle.





BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE---new photo released showing Ben Affleck as Batman.





SHAZAM---Dwayne Johnson hinted he will star in the movie but declined to say if the role is Captain Marvel or Black Adam.
Also, Benedict Cumberbatch commented on if he's starring in DOCTOR STRANGE, "As far as I'm aware, even if that was the case, it couldn't work out because I'm doing a little play called 'Hamlet' in a little town called London. So I don't think I could even if that was in the cards. It sounds like a fantastic project. It's a shame if I miss out, but who knows?" When asked if he's been in talks for the role, he replied, "I couldn't possibly comment."

PENNY DREADFUL---showrunner John Logan said Season 2 will concentrate on Madame Kali and Ethan Chandler. He also hopes Doctor Moreau will be introduced.

WINCHESTER---Hammer Films horror movie underway based on the Winchester, "the world's most haunted house" in San Jose. Sarah Winchester, heiress to the Winchester rifle fortune, had the house built from 1884 to 1922 to appease spirits who were supposedly haunting the family. The house has 160 rooms and is 24,000 square feet. Michael and Peter Spierig are the directors/writers.

OUTCAST---Cinemax pilot from Robert Kirkman (THE WALKING DEAD) about a man, possessed by spirits since he was a child, who seeks answers and discovers a threat to mankind.

TEEN WOLF---MTV renewed the series for Season 5 with 20 episodes.

7 DAYS IN HELL---HBO mockumentary starring Kit Harington and Andy Samberg in which a bad boy tennis star battles a young prodigy at Wimbledon.

When we were young the idea of BATMAN VS SUPERMAN was silly, How could Batman last more then 30 seconds.

When Batman and Superman faced off in Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, Batman had a few tricks to use against Supes. It wasn't wall-to-wall brawling, though. Superman also won't use the full range of his powers on a normal human. It's going to be interesting.

That's like Mike Tyson holding back in the ring because he's fighting Steve Carrell from The Office....

If you read The Dark Knight Returns, you'll get the gist of it.

'Sides, this movie is going to set up Justice League. Don't expect their "conflict" to be the main impetus.

Did he knee Supes in the testicles, or does Sup have steel testicles?

They won't read and they don't read. Comic movie viewers and comic book readers are for the most part, different groups of geeks.

I know, but it's easier to point the way than to explain it. If they still want to eat at McDonald's, they're going to eat at McDonald's.

Don't go there.

Sure, but I think for the most part the latter group is largely a small subset of the former, rather than a completely isolated group.

...or in my world, the former group would be a larger subset of the latter.

Hey, we've not been ourselves lately; there's a Revenge of the Sith thread going on and I haven't trashed the film and you haven't staunchly defended it. wink

But why would you recommend anyone read Miller's book, why inflict that on some innocent soul ? big grin

How cruel !

Replace "innocent" with "ignorant" and I'll agree with you. big grin

Even though TDKR is a classic story, Miller's art is so swollen and lumpen as to be a distraction. I didn't think so upon first reading it all those years ago but as I become older and more reactionary wink, the more I dislike Miller's art. So much of what made his phenomenal run on Daredevil so good was the fact that he had Klaus Janson's dominant inks to "carry the load." I much prefer Miller the writer over Miller the artist.
