Racists Totally Freak Out

Another day, another racist freak-out over non-white superheroes. But unlike the hilariously dishonest racism we saw when the Council of Conservative Citizens called for a boycott of Marvel's Thor movie on account of a mythical Norse god's depiction as a black man, a recent round of conservative attacks on Nightrunner -- DC's Muslim Batman of Paris -- are prejudicial in a more insidious way. While the CCC put forth a laughably tenuous justification for their outrage, it was with respect to one specific character in one specific context. The argument against Nightrunner, led by conservative blogger Warner Todd Huston, is based on the bigoted belief that a Muslim superhero is by definition an exercise in deceitful political correctness, and that Muslims are natively evil.

TheStar Another actor hospitalized after Spider-Man accident

The $65 million musical produced by Toronto’s Michael Cohl suffered yet another set-back on Monday night, when a 31 year-old actor identified as Christopher Tierney fell 30 feet to the stage during a climactic flying sequence.




Firefighters were called to the Foxwoods Theatre in New York City at 10:45 p.m. Monday in response to an emergency call. Audience photos showed a man, later identified as Tierney, wearing a neck brace as he was wheeled out on a gurney.

Superheroes’ Home Cities

As if the fictional worlds from comic books and sci-fi flicks weren’t already on most geek’s destination wish lists, Justin Van Genderen’s new travel posters show off pulp cities like Gotham and Metropolis.
“If superheroes really existed in this world we might see a poster like these in some old travel agency, all tattered hanging on the wall,” Van Genderen said in an e-mail interview with Wired.com
The homes of Batman, Superman and the rest all get the retro-pop treatment in Van Genderen’s five new images, which were inspired by minimalist propaganda posters and old Art Deco travel prints. The style has become a trademark of the Chicago freelance artist.

No Eckhart -- AND Two Face -- In THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

BATMAN-ON-FILM.COM - Official: No Eckhart -- AND Two Face -- In THE DARK KNIGHT RISES (12.3.10)

Despite the fact that Harvey Dent -- AND Two Face -- died at the end of THE DARK KNIGHT, many folks continued thinking and hoping that the character would return in BATMAN 3.
It ain't.
Per the man himself -- actor Aaron Eckhart -- neither he or Dent will be in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Here's what he told MTV... 

"Chris and I had a meeting, on the beach, just the two of us. I said, 'Chris, a lot of people are asking me if I'm in the next BATMAN. And Chris said, 'Yes?' I said, 'Am I?' He looked at me and he said, 'No.' We found ourselves alone on the beach together on a stormy day and he delivered the news to me and I was heartbroken. I was heartbroken. But Chris has his reasons and my life must go on."

AND...... the "word on the street" has pre-production for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES beginning in March of 2011. Filming is said to begin two months later in May. 


Thanks to JETT over at BATMAN-ON-FILM.COM for keeping us updated on all the latest and greatest.

TheStar ‘Spider-Man’ Broadway preview stopped five times

TheStar ‘Spider-Man’ Broadway preview stopped five times

Spider-Man flew over the skies of New York City on Sunday night . . . sort of.
The $65-million Broadway musical, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, being produced by Toronto's Michael Cohl, had its long-awaited, much-postponed first preview at the Foxwoods Theatre, only to have it stopped five times due to technical difficulties.
Normally, the show is expected to run 2½ hours, but Sunday’s performance started 25 minutes late and took 3½ hours due to all the problems that ensued.

Batman - Javier Olivares

A great little Fan Film....possibly a film school project? Very good....but seems to be cut off abruptly.
