According to the Hollywood Reporter the GREATEST SUPERHERO OF ALL TIME has just landed his own movie deal!!! It seems that Leonardo(Please don't play Aquaman in the movie)DiCaprio has signed on to produce(Please, for the love of God-JUST PRODUCE)the Sea King's big screen debut!
-Personally, I'd love to see Ocean Master be the villain of the film, but if I had to lay odds, I'd give it to Black Manta. But just look at how cool Ocean Master is!

Kiss my ass MacGruber!

MACGYVER is the man!!! And, he's getting his own movie!! It's about time. I don't know if I want to see Richard Dean Anderson reprise the roll, but I would at least like him to show up in a cameo or something. Can't wait for this one!

Jimmy's Dance Party!!!

Long, long, ago.....in my store, a co-worker always said that "the rest of us are working our asses off, but whenever I call Wheaton, it's "Jimmy's Dance Party". So, in that tradition, here's a couple songs to start your weekend:

And a bonus slow jam....

FINALLY!!!! May brings a new Buck Rogers comic!! It was announced LAST YEAR, and I've been waiting for this ever since! Published by Dynamite Entertainment, written by Scott Beatty and art by Carlos Rafael. And the first issue is just .25¢. Sound pretty good so far. Scott Beatty spoke to Comic Book Resources about the book recently, and after reading the interview, I'm damned excited.
-Yes, I'm a big fan of Flash Gordon too, but Buck Rogers will always be my favorite. Due in large part to the 1979 TV Series. Do I wish the upcoming comic was a little more like the TV show? Sure. But I'm still really excited about it. I'm even going to throw my first "Launch Party" at the store! Maybe even a midnight opening and some other awesome stuff.
-I've also come across some AWESOME Buck Rogers art by a guy on Deviantart. Wait, it's too good to cram into this post. I'll do another story on him soon. (Hopefully)Look for an interview with Scott Beatty soon here and over at work's website!

The Greatest Team Up Since Chocolate Met Peanut Butter!!

According to this report, Arnold Schwarzenegger is joining the cast of the greatest movie not made yet-THE EXPENDABLES!!! Every movie that I was excited for just took a back seat to this. And, I am officially SICK & TIRED of Watchmen.

Dark Horse announced at NYCC today the newest on-going Star Wars comic: Star Wars:Invasion! Set 25 yeas after the first movie, the series deal with the invading Yuuzhan Vong and their, well, Invasion of the Star Wars galaxy. This book is going to be SO COOL!!! The series will feature new characters, but orginal trilogy characters will be making appearances. AWESOME!

OK, I'm more excited!

New Masters of the Universe Classics!!!! You can read more about them here. I think I'm going to be the only person alive who uses the Man-At-Arms head WITHOUT mustache.


Here's pics of the upcoming Ghostbusters movie figures. I could NOT be more excited!

Thursday, February 5, 2009

Generally you don't see that kind of behavior in a major appliance.

OK, so we probably WON'T get a Ray Parker, JR. figure-BUT you never know. Mattel has got the GHOSTBUSTERS LICENSE!!!!! SO excited over this! 12 inch figures, 6 inch figures based on the movies AND new figures based on The Real Ghostbusters! I'm going to get EVERYTHING in this line, so that means I need to clear some space. Pictures to follow(hopefully tomorrow!)

I'm Going Green!

According to reports, Martin Campbell(Goldeneye, Casino Royale)is set to direct a Green Lantern movie. This is GREAT news. I just hope it's Hal. Never was a Kyle or John Stewart fan AT ALL. I wouldn't mind if they were IN it, just don't want it focusing on them. Plus, a Guy Gardner cameo would be awesome!

The last 2!!!

So, technically, the only reason for me to watch the Super Bowl now is football. Which is the BEST reason! I'm still thinking 10-7 Pittsburgh. Don't know why, don't have any allegiance to either team,but that's the number that is sticking in my head. ANYWAY, the last 2 trailers that I was looking forward to have made there way online. Let's start with a little Star Trek:

Man, does that look awesome! And speaking of awesome:

-WOW. What the hell punches Prime in the face? And how awesome does Ravage look? And STARSCREAM!!!! But, most importantly.............MEGAN FOX!!!

And knowing is half the battle!!

Here's the trailer that I was looking MOST forward to during tomorrow's Super Bowl, and like Land of the Lost, it got put up online early. The only one left for me is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen(C'mon Paramount!). Anyway, here's the trailer I've been waiting for since 1982:

-WOW!!! It's all I wanted and more! The "Power Ranger"suits don't bother me AT ALL. Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow look OUTRAGEOUS!....as they should and at this point I'd watch the Baroness read the phone book for 90 minutes. REALLY impressed and REALLY happy! YO JOE!

Matt Lauer can eat it!!!

-The third trailer that I'm looking forward to during tomorrow's Super Bowl got put up on the net early!!! And it doesn't dissapoint. Yes, I know the Land of the Lost purists are going to look down on this, but I think it looks GREAT!!!! It's got Chacka, Sleestacks, and ACTION!!! That's all I want out of a Land of the Lost movie. Visit the official movie website here!

Now I'm REALLY worried about the economy..

According to this article, the economy has even affected the sale of Girl Scout Cookies. Not only are sales down, but the the Girl Scouts are putting LESS cookies in the packages. I never trusted them.

More details on the best movie EVER!!!

The folks over at Comingsoon.net published an article from Variety this morning with more details on the A-Team movie. You can check out the article right here.
-I've no problem with them "updating" the origin. I just want this movie to be FUN! And I'm sure it will be. I'd also like some merchandise(where the REAL money from the movie is made!). And please God, let there be a comic book that I can sell!!! Chris Ryall-I'm looking at YOU!

The Plan Is Coming Together.............AND I LOVE IT!

Just read this story over at Aintitcol.com and FLIPPED OUT!!!! As anyone can tell, you I am THE world's biggest A-Team fan. I thought that after Singleton dropped out, it'd be back to development hell for my favorite TV-Show that would make an AWESOME movie, but apparently FOX is really serious about getting the movie done. I think Carnahan is a MUCH better choice than John Singleton and I'm sure anyone that saw Smokin' Aces will agree with me. And Ridly & Tony Scott producing? THANK YOU GOD!!!! This movie is gonna be all bullets and wise-cracks-just like it should be. The only icing on the cake would be if they can get Bruce Willis to play Hannibal. The release date of June, 11, 2010 is closer than you'd think, so I hope things move fast and some casting is announced soon. Besides Bruce Willis for Hannibal, I really can't think of anyone that I'd like to see play B.A., Face and Murdock, but IF the character of Amy Allen is in the movie, I'd love to see her played by...............................MS. MEGAN FOX!!!

Now I know MORE!

One more poster was added this afternoon-STORM SHADOW!!!

Now I Know!

Just 5 more days until the Super Bowl and I can't WAIT to see the GI Joe trailer that's going to air during the game. Here's 5 new posters for the movie that were just released!
-SO excited!!! Baroness, I <3 you!

Oh Boy!

So, it looks like Chuck will find his dad and it'll be Dr. Sam Beckett!! I'm getting SUPER excited about this show again, just read this description from NBC.com:

"Golden Globe Award-winning actor Scott Bakula ("Quantum Leap") will guest star as Chuck and Ellie's (Zachary Levi and Sarah Lancaster) estranged dad on NBC's action-comedy series "Chuck" (Mondays, 8-9 p.m. ET) in a multi-episode arc scheduled for broadcast later this spring.

In the storyline, Chuck made a promise to his sister, Ellie that he was going to find their dad in time for her wedding. But when he does find him, Chuck discovers that his dad is not necessarily a guy who wants to be found. He's living in a trailer, he's disheveled, he's paranoid and he's claiming constantly that Ted Roark (guest star Chevy Chase) -- who he used to work with -- stole all his ideas from him. In addition, Ted Roark has now become a super-successful software billionaire while Chuck's dad has become an eccentric, living in the shadows."
Sounds like a winner to me. Say what you want about Chevy, but I'm sure he can still pull it off!

And really, as long as Sarah is in the episode, it doesn't matter.

Another Remake.............

That I'm going to LOVE!!!! Who didn't love V back in the day!!! According to this story, the series is being made by Scott Peters, co-creator of the 4400. Which I've never watched. But, I'll totally watch this. Hopefully they can get someone who's as hot now as Jane Badler was then for the role of Diana! Like maybe........oh, I don't know..............MEGAN FOX!!!

Yes, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

According to this story, Megan Fox might be playing Lara Croft in a new Tomb Raider movie. Take it with a HUGE grain of salt, but I'd love to see her running around in next to nothing stealing treasure, fighting bad guys and,well, raiding tombs. Plus, I REALLY need a decent Megan Fox action figure.

American Idol

No, not THAT American Idol. A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet one of MY idols, TV producer, creator, writer, novelist, and sometimes actor Stephen J. Cannell. He's the man who created such shows as The Rockford Files, The Greatest American Hero and my favorite, THE A-TEAM. He was appearing at a Border's book store in La Grange, IL promoting his new book ON THE GRIND. Before the signing he gave a presentation about his life-which was FASCINATING-and his career and what made him jump from the boob tube to being a novelist. I haven't started reading ON THE GRIND yet, because I picked up one of his earlier books, WHITE SISTER, and I haven't been able to put it down. I'm going to go back and pick up everything in his Shane Scully sereis. So far, I'm really impressed.
-I got to talk to him about the recent Greatest American Hero comic(which has been a HUGE hit at my store)and he was very impressed that a "Comic Book Guy" turned out for one of his signings. It was a great experiance, and if you ever get the chance to meet him, you should go. He's awesome!
