According to a bulletin he posted at MySpace (which may not work if you're not in the Iron Man group, who can understand Cold Fusion?), director Jon Favreau will be on the Marvel panel during the Saturday session of this year's San Diego Comicon.
AMAZING SCREW-ON HEAD
LEGION OF SUPER HEROES
We got an email from Michael Grabois at the Legion Omnicom, who hipped us to tons of news about the animated series, including "Episodes writers included Stan Berkowitz, Amy Wolfram, and David Slack (freelancers) and Matt Wayne (staff), all of whom did 'JLU' and/or 'Titans' episodes. AJ Vargas (ex-'Titans') is a co-producer. Heather Hogan is listed in the IMDB as the voice of Phantom Girl. Michael Cornacchia is listed in the IMDB as the voice of Bouncing Boy. Season 1 production in the US is wrapping up this month, with only the overseas animation left. The show premieres in September." Fancy and futuristic!
BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN
Director Bryan Singer told MTV that he'd consider taking on a "versus" film, but only after Superman's newest filmed form had become more concrete in the cultural consciousness. "I've thought about it for a long time Ñ even a longer time ago, actually," Singer said. "But I don't know who would be the villain. I guess Batman would be the villain, but then he can't be too bad, because he is Batman. So not quite yet. ... I think Superman needs to have his own movies for a little while before that happens."
The debate continues over what will or won't happen in a gamma-powered sequel, as message board posters at Superhero Hype quote an SFX Magazine article where Marvel movie mogul Avi Arad said, "By now Bruce has more knowledge ..." and "because we don't have to get into what brings about the Hulk, we can get right into a story and his relationship with Betty and General Ross. And Abomination." Hmmm ...
THAT'S A WRAP
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.
