Here’s some gravy to go along with the heaping helping of Ghost Rider 2 news we presented earlier – Marvel is developing a new Daredevil movie.  Fortunately, instead of a sequel, this will be a reboot.  Empire Online has no other information other than the fact that Ben Affleck won’t be involved in the project. It’s odd that Marvel is going for a reboot of the Daredevil film when the director’s cut of the film was much better than the theatrical release.  It’s certainly much better than the Ghost Rider film which Columbia seems to want to force down viewer’s

Seth Rogen plays the titular role in “The Green Hornet,” a newspaper publisher by day who becomes a masked crime fighter at night. Asian pop star Jay Chou plays his martial arts-skilled sidekick and chauffeur Kato, while Cameron Diaz plays the love interest. The Green Hornet is currently shooting in Los Angeles, and is

One of the first pulp heroes I was introduced to as a wee lad was Lamont Cranston, The Shadow. I found this awesome 60’s retro styling of the crime fighter by Trisha Toms that I just had to share.

I really don’t know what kind of chaos is going on with the Seth Rogen Green Hornet movie, but originally Stephen Chow was set to play the side-kick Kato, and direct the action/comedy.  Some sort of tussle over creative differences has Chow bowing out of the directing duties, but now it looks like Michel Gondry is in talks to step in. The choice of Gondry, the helmer behind off-the-beaten-path films such as “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “The Science of Sleep” and “Be Kind Rewind,” signals that the creative direction the studio and the film’s producer, Neal Moritz, are

Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader? For almost two years I’ve been greatly saddened by the carnage going on in the pages of Batman, as obscure moments from Batman’s 70-year history were brought forward to weave a tale almost as confusing trying to navigate the inner workings of a clockwork motor.  When readers were presented with the “shocking conclusion” to RIP – namely that Batman was dead and not dead, it lead to the question, Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?

“I ♥ You, The Goddamn Batman!” Yes, it’s true – I’ve not liked a single issue of Batman R.I.P.  but that doesn’t mean I don’t love Batman.  While the masses seem to swallow everything Grant Morrison has to offer in the pages of Batman, the better story can actually be found in the pages of All-Star Batman and Robin, something the masses seem to detest.  Yes, I know I’m the lone voice on both of these Batman fronts, but what’s a person to do? Answer:  Love the Goddamn Batman!
