The CBR staff was all over Wondercon this last weekend, and we’ve got coverage including the big press conference with Bryan Singer and Brandon Routh, and a look at the public panel that everyone could attend (if they could get in). Mmm, that’s good readin’ — with pictures too!
Superhero Hype has some words from Richard Donner, who directed the original films in the late seventies.
X-MEN: THE LAST STAND
Also at Wondercon, there were six new posters given out, featuring characters from the film. Oh, you’d like to see what they looked like? Well, all right — the same guys from Superhero Hype was kind enough to put ’em all in one place for you.
JUST A PILGRIM
According to Comics Continuum, “‘Just a Pilgrim,’ the Black Bull comics property, is part of a slate of films being developed by QED, a Beverly Hills-based financing, sales and production company formed by Artisan founder Bill Block and three partners. ‘Just a Pilgrim’ — written by Garth Ennis, penciled by Carlos Ezquerra and edited by Jimmy Palmiotti — was published in two limited series by Black Bull, a five-issue mini in 2001 and a four-issue sequel in 2002. The film is being written and directed by John Heffernan, who wrote the upcoming ‘Snakes on a Plane.’ Gareb Shamus and Kevin Levin are producing.”
CBR contributing writer Michael Berry caught the Grant Morrison spotlight this weekend, where the writer discussed his dabblings in Hollywood, including an adaptation of his Vertigo project with Frank Quietly. “Everyone there is keen on the project. They just said to me, ‘Do the comic.'” The big-screen version will probably include scenes that could not be fit into the 96-page miniseries. “So if you like the book, this will be even better,” Morrison said.
The official website has been updated with a section for SHIELD, complete with files for Missions, Enemies and the team itself. Ain’t It Cool News also has an exclusive clip (scroll way down, past the Blu-Ray vs. DVD debate, just above the “Electric Company” bit).
V FOR VENDETTA
There’s four new photos from the film (marked with red words saying “neu”) at this German website.
Superhero Hype also has an interview with David Lloyd, the artist from the original work. “The first time I actually knew that they were putting it into production was when I saw the big promo poster thing that was on the ‘net,” Lloyd said of getting involved with the production. “Somebody sent it to me and said, ‘Hey, have you seen this?’ And it was that very first one with the big metallic V. And I said, ‘Oh, they’ve done it’ and that was the first time I knew and then I was coerced … they sent me the script, and I made some suggestions of what I thought might be useful. But I haven’t helped in any other way. The help I’ve given is basically through the work I’ve done on the art. From the trailer it looks like they’ve followed that pretty closely.”
There’s a lot of news in Ol’ Web Head’s life from this weekend, including filming locations from last week, and for five days in March (March 12, March 13, March 14, March 15, March 16). Knox News also has confirmed that Stan Lee will have a cameo in the film.
Kryptonsite has a new image gallery of screen captures from the trailer for this week’s Teen Titan-titled episode.
LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION
Here’s where you get in on the action. Did you see a link we didn’t catch? Have you snuck into a closed movie set, and have inside data? Maybe your cousin is dating somebody who knows something, and they had to tell you? Whatever it is, we wanna know it all — fire off an email and let us know whether you want your name used or your contributions to geekdom to go down anonymously. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is novelist/karaoke host/all-around lunatic Hannibal Tabu saying thanks for your time and indulgence, and [tagline sent back to development hell until something hipper can be dreamed up].
