Baskin Robbins (via Comic Book Movie) have released five new Captain America: The First Avenger behind the scenes images. That’s one image above, head to the link for more. We’re already behind the scenes and the film doesn’t open for two weeks.
Garth Ennis, the man behind Preacher and The Boys – both being turned into films – is now making films himself. He’s directed a short film called Stitched which will premiere at San Diego Comic Con and tie into a brand new comic book series too. Bleeding Cool talked to Ennis about the film, the comic and more, and here’s a quote of how the comic and short film co-exist. Head to BC for more info:
The comic book will retell and expand the story from the short film in its first issue, then move on to the rest of the plot. We’ll see the British and Americans fight a running battle against their pursuers, learning more and more about the Stitches and their handlers. They’ll discover what’s really going on up in the mountains and what the Stitches are being used to protect – something much nastier than black magic. We’ll find out all about Pruitt, Cooper, and Twiggy, and also about Barclay, Dave, and Baz, seeing exactly what makes each of them tick. And there’ll be bags of action, culminating in an all-out final battle that not everyone will survive.
On of the coolest Wolverine stories in recent memory is Old Man Logan, written by Mark Millar. Millar posted a fan made teaser trailer for a hypothetical movie of the incredible story and, of course, Millar is enthusiastic about this project moving forward. Thanks to Comic Book Movie for the heads up.
Fox should totally do this. Steve and I obviously don’t own the rights to this world the way we do with Nemesis, etc, but who cares? It would be great.
