Fantastic Flashbacks: Superboy TV show ad

You gotta love the fact that all these old T series are being released on DVD. Heres' the latest one....Superboy!! Personally, I can't wait for the really cheesey '70s version of Spiderman to be released!!!
From a 1991 cable TV trade magazine comes this large format ad for the third season of "The Adventures of Superboy" TV series, starring Gerard Christopher who replaced John Haymes Newton in season two.

The Hunt for BATMAN 3's Female Lead

BATMAN-ON-FILM.COM - The Hunt for BATMAN 3's Female Lead Commences (10.26.10)

Over at MOVIEHOLE.COM, Chris Nolan (and I�m sure producers Emma Thomas and Charles Roven) has started meeting with their prospective female lead. Allegedly, Nolan and co. are looking for someone in their late 20s to early 30s and they may not necessarily be a �name actress.�

Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film will be called “The Dark Knight Rises” and though the Gotham City auteur isn’t ready to reveal the villain of his 2012 film, he did eliminate one of the big contenders: “It won’t be the Riddler,” Nolan said in an exclusive interview with the Hero Complex.

Satanic image removed from DC title

Comics - News - Satanic image removed from DC title - Digital Spy

Batman and Robin
DC Comics has removed a satanic image from a cover design for Batman And Robin #15.

Drawn by Frank Quitely, the original cover illustration for the book depicted Robin and Dr Hurt in front of an upside-down crucifix.

However, the publisher has removed the background image for the retail version of the comic, which arrived in stores this week. It also shipped with a variant design from interior artist Frazer Irving.

Written by Grant Morrison, the issue serves as the final chapter in the 'Batman Must Die' plotline. The story sees Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne confront Dr Hurt for a final showdown.

Which Superheroes Really Do Belong on Television?

The Week In Geek: Which Superheroes Really Do Belong on Television?

When Marvel announced that 'The Incredible Hulk' would be returning to television in the wake of Warner's plans to revive 'Wonder Woman' for the small screen, the knee jerk reaction was to chalk it up to nostalgia programming. We've already seen 'Battlestar Galactica,' 'The Bionic Woman,' and 'Knight Rider' revived for TV; these moves just looked like more of that. However, a deeper look at Marvel's plans reveals that this isn't a retro cash-in, but part of a bigger push to establish their brand on television with the same success they've had on film.

Geek and Gamer Girls Song

Fun on a Friday!!!

The Killing Joke ala LEGO

This is the climax of Alan Moore’s Batman classic The Killing Joke as skillfully reenacted by Lego characters. Not only did The Killing Joke depict the crippling of Batgirl Barbara Gordon, but it also introduced one of the Joker’s more popular origin stories. This graphic novel is a quintessential edition to any bat-fan or comic fan out there.

Help out Steve

S.O.S. -- Help Steve Rude keep his house

Hey Guys,

Sorry for the dramatic headline but it really is appropriate. Like everyone else, Steve has been effected by the economic downturn, so much so that his house will be up for auction November 15th.

Link to Steve's Facebook blog.

In an effort to stave off the foreclosure, Steve has put up pages from The Next Nexus mini-series on eBay at really low prices. Pages from issues #1 and #2 are already up on eBay and issues #3 and #4 will up in a week or two.

Link to Steve's eBay auctions

Link to Steve's store where all the issues as well as other art are shown.

There's a lot of pages with the main characters left as well as plenty of pages with his fantastic spaceship designs (they are so very cool.)

His commission list is temporarily closed until he whittles down his backlog a bit but will be opened back up shortly.
Steve's originals are really handsome, and this may be doubly true of the ones that don't feature important characters (my brother owns one from his Marvel mini-series period that features nameless gangsters that's as handsome as any comics page we own between us), which makes all of his pages worth a gander.

If you're not in the market for original art or if it's out of your price range, the store link provided above takes you into a wealth of material at a wide variety of price points. I think Steve Rude is one of the really fine comics illustrators of the last 30 years and one of the most genuine ever in his desire to make stunning imagery on the page, so if you can find anything he's offering that you would like I think you'd be well-rewarded.

Zack Snyder: The Right Man for a SUPER-Job

A BATMAN-ON-FILM.COM Op-Ed - “Zack Snyder: The Right Man for a SUPER-Job” by Sean Gerber (10.5.10)

Warner Bros. was already off to a remarkable head start on rebooting the Superman film franchise by bringing in Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas to produce the film while hiring David Goyer to write the script. Now, with the addition of Zack Snyder in the director’s chair, a comic book movie “Dream Team” is complete. Zack Snyder is absolutely the right choice. He is the kind of director that Superman needs right now.

NOLAN is on board!!!!!!

Christopher Nolan Confirms Batman 3

You may have guessed, you may have assumed it, but until now we hadn't had confirmation from the studio or the man himself that Christopher Nolan would be back to direct Batman 3 / The Dark Knight 2 (or whatever we're calling it). But our Dan Jolin talked to the man himself earlier today, and got it straight from Nolan himself.
"It’s becoming inevitable, I’ll put it that way," says Nolan. "I feel myself falling into it, I guess. And getting it all figured out and I’m pretty excited about what we’re doing so… If I haven’t announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I’m doing it."
Hang on, that's not 100% clear: so we can safely assume you're directing?
"I think you can at this point, yes."
So as of right now, Nolan will return. You may also have spotted the "getting it all figured out" there: when we asked Nolan what he was busy with as we called, the answer was that he's working on Jonathan Nolan's script for the film. In other words, there is a script! Things are slowly taking shape!
