A New Ring Will Rule Them All

New footage from Green Lantern makes amends for all that has come before. This is now THE summer movie to see. How could we ever have doubted?

DC's Next Next Next Animated Movie is Doomed

At the WonderCon conference this weekend it was announced that next Spring's animated offering will be a loose adaptation of the classic JLA: Tower of Babel storyline originally published in 2000. The movie will be called Justice League: Doom.

This is truly great news as Tower of Babel is a great story detailing the true threat posed by Batman. I wont say any more about the plot, but fans should be happy as this is one title I consistently hear people requesting for an adaptation (along with Kingdom Come, Justice, and The Long Halloween which have all been placed in the "not at this time status"). The one downside I anticipate is complaints that all we get is Superman, Batman, Superman and Batman, and Superman with Batman and the League movies. There is some truth to that, but I guess they make what sells. As long as they are good, I say keep 'em coming.

Tale of Thor Vs. A Wolfman

Beholdest thou a clip from Thor: Tales of Asgard, full of April foolery. Not sure who picked this clip but I hope this isn't intended to showcase the movie's humor because, if anything, this makes me want to see the movie less. After that last two Hulk movies, Marvel was starting to get on a roll only to end their DtV line with this. Maybe Marvel/Disney will have better output down the road. At least the live action Thor looks amazing.

First Look at Ultimate Spider-Man

Swinging by in 2012. Ultimate Spider-Man has its work cut out for it. Spectacular Spider-Man was forced into early retirement despite it being the best Spider-Man, and possibly even Marvel animated series ever made. Nothing against this show, its just that the bar is mighty high. I like the design just fine though. Can't wait to see more from the series.

Wonder Woman Tweaked

I get it now! The Wonder Woman costume released last week was pretty much awful, on that I think we can all agree. But why would producers release, let alone come up with, such a terrible design? Because any changes made would necessarily be improvements. After being shocked and awed by the shiny pants and blue boots, this modified costume, seen during filming, will be viewed as a huge victory for fans. Whereas is they had just gone with this from the beginning I am sure some anti pants extremists would have been just as angry. At this point, I am still not expecting much, but the costume is definitely better. Let shiny, red boots, yay. Just call me a sheep. Baaaa.

Blue and Gold in Supes Future

Here is the first look at Booster Gold and Blue Beetle from the upcoming Smallville episode Booster. It looks like they are going with the new Blue Beetle Jaime Reyes, which is fine, I just wonder if there will be any mention of the fallen Ted Kord, Booster's original buddy, ala their team-up in the recent Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode Menace of the Madnicks! In any case, they both look pretty decent. Its hard to believe this duo will likely be the last new guest heroes to grace Smallville before the series wraps up in just a few episodes.
