Info on a Justice League Movie and more.

From and Comic Book Resources information from DC and Warner Brothers are coming from Geoff Johns panel at the New York Comic Con.  The highlights included that with the end of the Harry Potter movies Warner Brothers will be filling the void with two comic book movies a year.

With the releases of Green Lantern next year, and Batman 3 and the reboot of Superman in 2012, there hasn't been much news in the way of anything else confirmed.  There has been rumors of a Flash movie, as well as a Wonder Woman movie, but one movie that, as of now, is not in the plans,is a Justice League movie.  From Geoff Johns, "I'm going to speak frankly: I think our characters are bigger than Marvel's." He said that he'd rather spend time building each character on his or her own rather than "smashing them together."

Captain America: Super Soldier Trailer

Courtesy of Superhero Hype:

Coming in 2011 for Xbox 360, PS3, PSP, Wii and Nintendo DS

SEGA announced Tuesday it is developing video game Captain America: Super Soldier for release in 2011:

SEGA® of America, Inc and SEGA®, Europe Ltd. today announced they will bring Marvel Entertainment’s famed Super Hero franchise Captain America™ to video game systems in an original WWII adventure, Captain America: Super Soldier. The title is scheduled for release in 2011 on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PSP®(PlayStation® Portable) system, Wii™ and Nintendo DS™.

Players will become Captain America as he faces the Red Skull and his army in an epic third- person action adventure set in the darkest days of World War II. Wielding Captain America’s legendary shield, gamers will engage in free-flowing combat and acrobatic platforming to infiltrate Hydra’s mysterious castle and battle the infamous Iron Cross, the forces of Hydra, and a host of nefarious enemies serving the Red Skull. As the First Avenger himself, players must defeat the evil scientist Arnim Zola and his wartime experiments, combining powerful melee combos and shield attacks to devastating effect.

Captain America: Super Soldier combines a highly athletic combat system with fluid platforming and a highly tuned suite of shield attacks, as Cap explores a massive castle turned military installation. His shield can be employed in numerous ways: taking out multiple enemies at once, deflecting incoming fire back at enemies, solving puzzles, and scaling walls. Players will be able to launch shield-first into the fray with the superior force of the world’s first Super-Soldier at their fingertips—and they’ll need every bit of that strength to overcome a castle that’s both an acrobatic playground for the Captain’s physical prowess and a house of mystery with enemies and danger at every turn.

Community The Psychology of Letting Go

The Psychology of Letting Go
We start with the death of Pierce’s mom where he takes it surprising well, and Troy was taking it pretty hard. Everybody is concerned with Pierce as an argument about religion breaks out and Jeff uses one of his speeches to calm the situation. Pierce continues to get worse though, as he buries himself into a crazy cult like religion.

With Professor Baur (Betty White) on a leave of absence, do to the incident with Jeff, Professor Duncan is forced to take over the class, which he has no idea what he is doing. This also sets up a great little story between him and Chang that stems from a mutual hatred and restraining order.

Paton Oswald guest stars in this weeks episode as the clinic’s nurse where Jeff goes into for a routine physical, and finds out that his cholesterol is a little high. Jeff doesn’t take this very lightly as he claims he is a perfect specimen. Overreacting about his test results Jeff becomes very cynical about life, and only upsets the group with his comments.

I was worried at the end of last season that Ken Jeong’s character would be phased out since he was no longer a teacher, but instead as a student it has given him more opportunities to use his comedic charm. I like the ongoing story of him trying to prove himself to the group to become a part of it, and the little moments where he goes a little crazy.

The great thing about this show is that is doesn’t have to focus on Jeff as the main character, instead it has a great supporting cast that in any episode can have the feature story arc. This episode is one of those cases, where Jeff is there, but is the secondary story line. This episode didn’t have that much of Troy and very little Abed, and hope that isn’t a trend that will continue. The pop culture references from Abed always add to the show because they are always well done. The scenes, especially the last one, between Annie and Britta were also very entertaining, and it looks like Alison Brie will continue to be a bigger part of the show.

Once again, I cannot stress this enough, this show is great, everyone must watch and tell there friends to watch. Do it, now, don’t wait!

Running Wilde 103 Oil and Water

Oil and Water
Steve’s continues to try to impress Emmy at the same time trying to find ways to get Andy out of the picture. One way is to convince Andy to go to Alaska to “uncover” a conspiracy about big oil and the Wilde Oil company. To impress Emmy, Steve promises to quit his job at Wilde Oil to earn her praise, but finds that being at the office is fun. Emmy gets back to her cause a little bit here, as she uses Steve and the company to get information to bring down said company.

It seems that people are still unsure about this show, but as far as new comedies of this season I am entertained. Some things still bother me about it, I do not like the butler, he is too cartoony for my liking, and I’m not totally sold on Keri Russell. I am starting to come around on Steve’s man servant and the chemistry between Steve and Puddle on screen is great. Steve’s friend/nemesis Fa’ad has also become a great character. The things that I do enjoy is Will Arnett being Will Arnett, so far the act that he has been doing works fine a the leading character.
I also didn’t mind the KFC commercial in the show, immediately followed by one to start the break. I understand and am perfectly fine with it.
