I've always found myself amusing, now it's time to expand on that audience. Created to develop an incredible ego and delusional sense of grandeur. It's all about me...come enjoy!

Comic Book Movies

I came across this article about Hollywood going crazy for comic books. There was a quick rundown on comic book movies in the works:

Batman Begins (June 17): With the director of Momento and the star of American Psycho it looks like Batman will be going back to his dark roots instead of the gawd awful fun house that Joel Schumacher turned the last two Batman movies into.

The Fantastic Four (July 8): I liked it better when they were called The Incredibles! I don't think it will be very good.

V For Vendetta (November): Directed by The Wachowski Brothers (The Matrix). Say no more, I'm in. Oh wait, Natalie Portman....I'm going to go line up now.

Ghost Rider (Summer 2006): The very first comic that I bought was Ghost Rider. Nicolas Cage as Johnny Blaze, lets hope he's Ghost Rider most of the time.

Superman Returns (Summer 2006): Never been much of a fan of the man of steel but with X-Men director behind the camera I'll be there. If that's not enough Kate Bosworth is Lois Lane, maybe that will get you in the theater.

X-Men 3 (May 26, 2006): How could they screw this up? Loved the first two. Everyone hasn't signed up yet for part 3 but Hugh Jackman's in so let's get going.

The Watchmen (Summer 2006): What many consider the greatest comic book story ever told. Heard of it, never read it.

Hellboy 2 (2006): The first one was just great fun to look at, I'll be back for a second helping.

Wonder Woman (2006): Wonder Woman is hot.

Spider-Man 3 (May 2007): Loved the first one. Liked the second one. Lets hope the the third turns it around. So many villians who's up next? Sandman? Lizard? Venom?

The Sub-Mariner (2007): Chris Columbus, director of Harry Potter is behind the camera on this one.

The Flash (T.B.A.): Ryan Reynolds as The Flash...hhmmm I don't know we'll see.

Rumored but lacking details

Captain America: Possibly with Brad Pitt.

Green Lantern: Rumoured at one point to star -- Jack Black?!

The Punisher 2: The first did well enough on DVD to warrant a sequel that will shoot shortly.

The Hulk 2: Marvel insists its making a more action-centric sequel.

Iron Man: Once due in 2006, has reportedly lost its director so the search is on for who will helm Shellhead's feature debut.

Blade 4: Unlikely, but Wesley Snipes may make Black Panther.
