Kryptonsite's got a fresh spoiler about a new DCU character coming to Kansas.
According to Variety, Mark Tatulli's humorously macabre daily strip is set to be the subject of a live-action feature from the maker of "Curious George" ... and also those Chucky movies.
X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE
The New Zealand Film and Video Technician's Guild knows exacty when Logan goes before the lenses. "Prep from October 8th; Shooting 10th Dec 2007 - 18th January 2008 (2 week break over Christmas 21st Dec 2007 - 7th January 2008). Locations: Queenstown and surrounds. Production Co: WOZ Productions." How 'bout that?
THE MAN OF STEEL
You can count Mark Millar out for the sequel, and he tells the tale at his website. "I'm a Marvel guy and we were surprised to find out that WB couldn't hire me for a DC property. They were incredibly nice and superbly apologetic about it, but when they discussed the matter seriously DC explained just how associated I am with Marvel Comics at the moment and it's against company policy to hire the competition. It's absolutely nothing personal. I spoke to some friends at DC and they explained this has happened with a couple of big Marvel writers in the last couple of years and I absolutely respect that. It's a business after all and to have a guy writing 'Fantastic Four,' '1985,' 'Kick-Ass' and another super-big project for Steve McNiven this year which would be mentioned in every article about a Superman movie is not only an insult to their own writers, but makes bad business sense. I have nothing but respect for the DC high-ups and, though obviously disappointed, can absolutely appreciate their position. They're the custodians of these properties and they obviously know what they're doing. So no Millar-penned Superman movie at this stage, I'm afraid."
