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."

Cover of "The Green Lantern Archives, Vol...Cover via AmazonSo I guess that's that, and as always we'll have to just wait and see.  Good news is that DC will be ramping up its production and development of its characters, and the first trailer for Green Lantern will be played before the new Harry Potter in November.

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.

Raising Hope get full season order.

With so many shows debuting this fall it is hard to know which ones will make it for a full season.  So far only two shows have been cancelled after only a few airings.  One on Fox, Lone Star, after great critical hype and a good deal of promotion, the show was quickly pulled after two, but really decided after the first weeks disappointment.  The second was ABC's My Generation, that was up against some good competition on Thrusday's at 8pm, got the ax after two weeks as well.

The news last night comes down that FOX's Raising Hope is the first to get its back 9 episodes picked up, giving it a full season at 22.  “With 'Raising Hope,' Greg Garcia captures a smart take on the working-class family with a great mix of wild comedy and a big dose of heart,” FOX president Kevin Reilly said in a statement. “The show is running like a Swiss clock, and we’re very happy with how well audiences have responded so far – so we’re confident it will build an even bigger audience throughout the season.”

It's a fun show, glad to see it is getting the full season treatment.

Raising Hope 103 Dream Hoarders

Dream Hoarders
Jimmy accidentally teaches Hope how to crawl, then realizes how unsafe the house is and is reminded how dangerous it was for him growing up. While trying to but some things in the shed, out of reach of the baby, Jimmy also needs to convince his mom that she is a hoarder and needs to get rid of things. While making a trip to the grocery store to pick up baby proofing items, and to attempt to get closer to Sabrina, Hope uses her new skill to get her self lost. Virginia’s hoarding issue becomes a problem as Hope’s new favorite place to crawl is in the shed.

The show is beginning to hit its stride as it now has a real sense of direction. The characters are becoming more likeable. The heart felt moments still fall a little short, but the misuse of commonly known phrases has its charm. I do enjoy the nice wrap up of things and the lessons learned to finish the show. Each week it is nice to see the progression of the characters and the growth of them as individuals.

Wonder Woman getting the small screen treatment.

A little late on this news that broke Friday, but I thought it was worth repeating.  News coming from that writer/producer David E. Kelley will be creating a television series starring Wonder Woman

Some of the shows that David E. Kelley is know for are Ally McBeal, Chicago Hope, and most recently Boston Legal, and has also written the screenplays plays for Mystery, Alaska and Lake Placid. 

Not many details is known other than the series is a go, and this does not necessarily hinder the prospects of a future feature film starring Wonder Woman.

Chuck Versus the Cubic Z

Chuck Versus the Cubic Z
Morgan is now the new store manager of the Buy More, and is getting the store ramped up for a big new video game release. This week features Stacy Kiebler as the new Greta.
Chuck and Sarah had a very romantic mission planned in Monaco, but it is abruptly cancelled when a transport vehicle breaks down and the prisoners need to be directed to Castle. Sarah is relieved to hear this as she is hesitant about where the relationship with Chuck is heading after he mentioned last week about the future and possibly having kids.
The prisoners that will be staying at Castle are non other than Hugo Panzer (Stone Cold Steve Austin) and Heather Chandler (Nicole Richie), two foes of Chuck and Sarah’s past respectively. We saw Hugo as the bad guy in Chuck’s first solo mission on a flight to Europe, and Heather was an old classmate turned evil spy and nemesis of Sarah.
Chuck flashes on Heather and finds out she may know information on his mother. They have bigger problems as the discover Hugo is on the lose in Castle, and he is after Heather, and revenge on Chuck will be a bonus. Heather gets under Sarah skin by putting doubt in Chuck’s head about the relationship.
After some hand to hand combat, and some gun fight, the convicts get detained again, and Heather starts to talk about what she knows about Frost, which isn’t much, but it is a lead. Chuck and Sarah finally get to have their chat, and they come to the agreement that they need to take things slow. Until something happens….a teaser for next week.
Once again I think the Greta character is a waste, and would like to see a little more than just a nerd nod. Relationship problems once again is too much of the focus, I would prefer more search for Volkoff and for Chuck’s mother. It was also unbelievable that the Buy More would only have 6 copies of a very popular game, and that they only new that shortly before launch date.
A pretty good show, nothing too remarkable about it. An average episode among another above average season. Not as many funny moments as in the past two episodes but I am glad to see Big Mike back.

Zack Snyder Confirmed for Superman

Yes it is finally confirmed, Zack Snyder will be directing the new Superman reboot from Warner Bros. Pictures coming to theaters in late 2012.  Zach Snyder, director of 300, was originally offered the job for Superman Returns but declined the opportunity to take on the super hero at that time.

With a script from David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan I look forward to seeing another Superman film.

Zack Snyder currently has Legend of the Guardians: The Owl of Ga'Hoole in theaters and his next film Sucker Punch opens March 25th 2011.

At Snyder confirmed the report in this statement:

 "I've been a big fan of the character for a long time, he's definitely the king of all superheroes, he's the one. It's early yet, but I can tell you that what David [Goyer] and Chris [Nolan] have done with the story so far definitely has given me a great insight into a way to make him feel modern. I've always felt he was kind of awesome. I'll finish 'Sucker Punch' and get right at it."

The Social Network!

This is the story about the founders of the social-networking website, Facebook, starring Jesse Eisenberg (Zombieland, Adventureland) as founder Mark Zuckerberg and Zachary Garfield (Spider-Man Reboot, Never Let Me Go) as co-founder and CFO Eduardo Saverin. Screenplay was written by Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men, West Wing, Sports Night), and the film was directed by David Fincher, who directed some of my favorite movies, such as Fight Club, Se7en, and Panic Room. He most recently directed The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and is currently working on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo starring Daniel Craig (Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace) and Rooney Mara (The Social Network, A Nightmare on Elm St.) and is currently scheduled for release on December 21st 2011.
The Social Network already has some Oscar buzz surrounding it as we get to that time of year when the nominating committee tends to start paying the most attention. To get as close to the most accurate story, Fincher and Sorkin took their story from three separate points of view. The movie develops as a story told through the depositions of two separate and simultaneous lawsuits that were brought against Mark Zuckerberg.
It started with Mark getting dumped by his girl friend Erica Albright, played by Rooney Mara. As he is drunkenly badmouthing her through his blog, he comes up with a program that takes pictures of two girls from the surrounding schools and has people rate which one is hotter. The pictures he obtained were through hacking different college student directories.
Impressed with his work, the Winklevoss brothers ask him to develop a private social network only for Harvard students. Agrees to do so, but never actually works on it, instead Mark decides to work on his own social networking site with his friend Eduardo while pretending to work on the other site. After the launch of Facebook, realizing he didn’t work on theirs, and after the site starts expanding rapidly, the Winklevoss’ decide to sue Mark Zuckerberg for his first suit against him.
As CFO Eduardo wants to start monetizing the Facebook and starts to set up meetings in New York with advertisers. Mark has zero interest in doing this as he feels it cheapens the brand. Only one meeting got Mark excited and that was with Sean Parker, founder of Napster, played by Justin Timberlake (Friends with Benefits, Alpha Dog). With the advice of Sean, Mark moves to California to expand the site to even more schools, and gets some big time investors. Eduardo and Mark start to have a falling out and Eduardo is eventually squeezed out where he then files the second lawsuit against Mark Zuckerberg.
Overall I give it a 4.5 of out 5. I must say I love this movie, I always enjoy movies that are compelling and that are based on true events and that are pretty near how things actually went. This will definitely be near the top of my end of the year rankings. The acting was great, there is much hate for Jesse Eisenberg, many for his close likeness to Michael Cera, and one is enough of him. For me I believe there is enough distinction between them to enjoy them both. A great choice of actors for the characters.
It has a style of writing that I always love, that quick back and forth, and the smooth flow of conversation. A style that you seen in one of my favorite TV shows, Sports Night, and one of my top 3 favorite movies, A Few Good Men, both written by Aaron Sorkin. Not to pile on too much, but music from Trent Reznor, who is from my favorite band, Nine Inch Nails, is the score to this film, and is excellent as well. I would definitely recommend this movie to all.

Community Accounting for Lawyers

Accounting for Lawyers

Rob Corddry guest stars on tonight’s episode as one of Jeff’s former colleagues, Alan, that is there for a narcotics anonymous meeting. Drew Carey also guest stars as the head of Jeff’s old law firm.

Greendale is celebrating Oktoberfest again this year but adding a twist, they are having a pop and lock contest, and the study group wants to join, but as always, Jeff is reluctant. Chang is apparently a pop and lock genius, and knows that Jeff won‘t do it, so he uses this opportunity to get in the group. The group is late, but shows up to save Chang who has survived to the end. When the stop moving to have a heartfelt hug, they get disqualified, since they didn’t win, they still didn’t let him in.

Jeff is blowing off his study group as he continues to hang out with his old buddy, and misses being at the office. Annie recognizes him from their meetings and heard Alan confess that he got Jeff disbarred, but he doesn’t believe them, and instead just insults them.

Alan takes Jeff to an office party where he tries to use him to talk him up to his boss to make him a partner. The whole study group crashes the party with an invite from Allen, they use Annie to get into his office so they can find proof of the email he sent to the state investigators. Even after the proof, Jeff still doesn’t care because he still says that he is a good lawyer, not a good friend, and to do that you mustn’t care. Jeff decides not to let Alan know he knows the truth, but wants to use it as leverage, and realizes he needs his friends at Greendale.

The quick conversation in this show allows for quick hits in its comedy timing, and the bumbling nature of Pierce is hilarious because of context and delivery. It was weird seeing Drew Carey so skinny as compared to his days on his old ABC show where he must have been about twice as big. I was caught a little off guard, it kind of made him look a little old, at least older than I imagine him to be. The scene with Annie, Troy and Abed as they get caught in the office is one of the funniest moments I can recall in the show. This was a great show, many great moments, this show must be watched by all!

This is a great little video trailor remix from DJ Steve Porter.  Enjoy!

Running Wilde 102

Into the Wilde
Steve Wilde continues to struggle with that the fact that Emmy has little no regard for the lifestyle that he lives, while Emmy struggles with that fact she has too missed the conveniences of modern civilization. By living in the tree house with her daughter Puddle, Emmy it trying to keep her distance while still making a point, but is slowly falling back ways and feelings she had for Steve when they were children.

Jealous that his neighbor and rival Fa’ad is going on vacation with his family, Steve, probably unknowingly, tricks Emmy into taking Puddle and going with him. Excited to go, and to be going with Steve, Emmy’s boyfriend Andy (David Cross) shows up at the tree house unannounced. With this unwanted guest, the trips gets cancelled.

Andy has a plan to hold Steve for ransom without him knowing, and Steve has a plan to pretend to be nice to Andy to get closer to Emmy. This brings them to plan a trip to Steve’s cabin together, where they quickly get tired of pretending to be friends. Walking through the woods, they realize that they were following each other to the cabin that neither knew how to get to. Emmy tracks down Andy that has become sick, while Steve is still looking to help. Emmy confuses that she likes Steve, and that they are friends.

Chemistry between the characters, said to be one of the problems with the pilot, is starting to heat up. Growing on me quickly, the flaws in the first show are being smoothed out, as the show finds its way. The writing in this episode shows great improvement over the redone pilot. I am enjoying the back and forth between Emmy and Steve, and the confusion and twisting of words that continues to happen. I really enjoyed this episode, and I hope that it can keep it up.

Human Target Season 2

Human Target is a FOX drama based on the comic book of the same name in which a security expert goes undercover impersonating his clients in order to eliminate the threats against them. 

Origially supposed to return for its second season in October has been moved back and will now premiere Wednesday November 17th at 8/7c.  The move is partially prompted by the cancellation of Lone Star, which in its first two weeks had very disappointed numbers.  The move also leaves FOX with a void in its Fridays "Action" line up.

Raising Hope 102

Dead Tooth

Needing to go back to work, Jimmy has to find some kind of daycare for his child. While still afraid to ask out Sabrina from the grocery store, his mom interrupts to ask if she baby sits, politely declining, she offers up her cousin that runs a daycare. Her cousin Shelly, play by Kate Micucci (UCB, Garfunkel and Oates), is a girl that Jimmy promised to call back after a night of making out, but couldn’t bring himself to it, due to her dead tooth.

Disappointed to find that Sabrina has a boyfriend, Jimmy also tells Shelly that he isn’t interested in her, because he likes her cousin. Because Shelly is the only person that his daughter seems to like, she agrees to continue watching her, but now he’ll have to pay $60 a week.

The one thing that I do admire about Jimmy that he is attempting to take reasonability. No longer is he running around with his dumb friends doing dumber things. His efforts in trying to raise his child are
unwitting at best, but his willingness to try is admirable.

I always enjoy when Kate Micucci pops up in shows. More familiar with her from the comedy folk duo Garfunkel and Oates than her acting so far, but her star is still raising as I see her in more and more things. The songs that her and Riki Lindhome play are very funny and entertaining, I suggest checking them out here.
