Dynamite Entertainment announces that it will release Kevin Smith‘s The Bionic Man starting in August. Phil Hester co-wrote and Jonathan Lau is the artist. The blurb:
Steve Austin is back and acclaimed film maker Kevin Smith unleashes his high octane vision in this new series from Dynamite. Featuring 28 pages of story/art in an action-packed first issue! Kevin Smith is joined by Phil Hester, artist Jonathan Lau, and cover artist/character designer Alex Ross (the team who brought you The MAIN Green Hornet series), Smith unleashes Bionic Man into the 21st century as only he can.
That piece of art above (click to enlarge) is from io9‘s collection of concept art done by Rolf Mohr for the first draft of Cowboys & Aliens back in 1997. The site has two other pieces of art, and quotes from Steve Oedekerk, who talked about the movie in ’97 when he was planning to direct.
Above is the final box art for Batman: Arkham City. Can’t wait for the game, as Akham Asylum was one of the best versions of Batman put on screens in any moving medium. If the sequel hits that bar, it could be great. Some PR synopsis:
Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City – five times larger than the game world in Batman: Arkham Asylum – and the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new, all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.
ScriptFlags passes on the report that, in The Dark Knight Rises, Bruce Wayne will cruise around in a 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. That’s the car on set, above.
One more listicle: io9 runs down ten times Superman’s pets acted like goddamn maniacs. That title speaks for itself. Gems include Krpyto, the super-dog, contemplating suicide and the accidental, Toxic Avenger-like creation of Streaky the Supercat via the crass disposal of chemicals.
Collider talked to Marvel Studios VP of Production Tom Cohen, who addressed some of the Fox-owned Marvel characters (X-Men, Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer) and Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man script, which is still in development and the scripting stage. Watch the entire interview above.
