Thought this was something relevant. Too bad it isn't Cats and Toilets.

Black Widow spinoff a possibility!

This goes along with my other post. More woman superheroes. I'm tired of just seeing my gender represented as a damsel in distress. I'm also hoping that Anne Hathaway kicks ass as Catwoman, to show that woman superheroes can rock audiences socks.


Portman upset about the firing of woman director of Thor

I was upset about hearing that Patty Jenkins had left Thor, because I want to see more woman directors film things other than romantic comedies/independent films/animation. I want to see them do action. I want them to show studios they can handle a franchise. Woman power!

New Footage!

First footage of the Alien prequel (even though it's not really a prequel)

Personally, I love the movie Alien over the sequel by Cameron. Alien, to me, was absolutely frightening. So horror. I'm stoked to see Scott do another Alien film, even though this isn't really supposed to be a prequel.

One of the Greatest Villains is Dead!

On Saturday, the infamous leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-Il died from a heart attack. Doctors were surprised that he even had a heart! Anyways, the oppressive, nuclear weapons driven lunatic is now out of power and the world has one less villain.

And an article from the NYTimes.

The New "Spiderman"

There is a lot of discussion about the relaunching of the Spiderman franchise. I personally feel that it is a little early to be telling a story that we just saw at the beginning of the 00's but there will always be a demand for more Spiderman. Recently, Marc Webb talked to Empire about his take on the series. He said that this is definitely not a remake of the Sam Raimi movies. It will be a different tone and different characters to give everyone a different experience. He said that he tried to create a universe that was believable and felt much like what a normal city would feel like. It starts off on a light note but going off what Marc said, "one of the reasons I wanted to do it was to fucking blow shit up, swing through the air and kick some ass," so I think we can at least expect to see some action.

Superhero PSAs and Questionable Legality

So, we all know cancer awareness is important, right? And we also know that more and more women read comics and follow superheroes right? So clearly it follows that we can combine the two:

I find it interesting that the whole thing appears to be of questionable legal standing: there seems to be a theory that the creators of the PSA didn't actually get permission from Marvel and DC to use the characters' likeness. Though I also doubt that there will be too much of a problem with this, seeing as how attacking a positive PSA might look a little, oh what's the word? Tacky?
