Comic and Film News

An extended trailer for the up coming Avengers film aired during last week-ends Super Bowel, the trailer has me really excited to see this film and the Hulk look awesome. The month of May cannot come fast enough, click the link to see the trailer on You Tube

Also released last week was the trailer for the new Spider-Man film, to be honest this one wasn't high on my must see films, however this trailer has changed that view. See what you think, as always click the link for the You Tube Trailer.

DC Comics have announced they are to produce sequels to Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons critically acclaimed graphic novel Watchmen, the sequels will be under the banner
Before Watchmen and will cover around 40 issues in total.
Reaction by Watchmen and comic fans to the news has been mixed, and ranges from outright condemnation to positive approval , only time and sales will tell if its a good move by DC but personally I'm looking forward to the books and intend to buy at least the fist issues to see how they read.

The full list of all the titles writers and artists is listed below courtesy of DC The Source Blog

                                              SMALLVILLE SEASON 11

If you are a fan of Smallville and don't know what to do with your life now that the final season is over, when we all finally got to see Clark in costume fighting the good fight. Well to be honest we sort of saw a computer generate Superman figure in a distance shot, and a glimpse of the big S as Clark pulled his shirt apart on the Daily Planet roof top, so we didn't see it really if were honest. However don't despair as DC have announced a Smallville Season 11 comic book that will pick up where the last episode left off, we are promised that fan favourites will be included along with new allies and enemies. The first issue will be published digitally on April 13th, and will be written by show scribe Bryan Q. Miller with new digital chapters released weekly in digital format. A print issue will be available from May 16th which will include an episode guide for the TV series.
Given the success Dark Horse has had with the continuation of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in comic form, I think this is a clever move by DC and I hope the book does well.

                                                     Power Girl is back
First look at the new Power Girl costume as she teams up with Huntress in Worlds Finest, its a bit of a change in costume for Power Girl and there will be some disappointed Power Girl fans out there when they see it. Having said that the new look is probably more functional then the previous one, and as my dear wife said when she saw my Power Girl statue ''what type of self respecting hero would dress like that''
Try as I might I didn't have an answer, but for all those nostalgic for the old costume.
