The Avengers is A… Remake?

Thanks to YouTube user whoiseyevan, we can now enjoy the trailer for the original Avengers film, made in 1952… Which, oddly, is about a decade before the Avengers debuted. Oh well, enjoy – and check out his site for many more ‘Premakes’!

Plus, check out this video’s frame-by-frame breakdown!

Now THIS Looks Promising…

One of the new trailers for the upcoming film, Kick Ass. HitGirl isn’t even the main character, but the movie might be worth seeing just to see her in action… The language and images are, to be sure, intended for adults only. Enjoy!

Work That Magic!

Diane Nelson, the new President of DC Entertainment (and a stone-cold fox, which is apparently her superpower), has gained some momentum in moving ahead with bringing DC’s stable of characters to other media. Warners has been lax in taking advantage of the iconic characters DC has to offer (two guesses as to which specific one I am talking about), so this is good news for me, a lifelong DC geek!

10warner01-190Hot, smart, into comics. Need I say more?

Nelson, who oversaw the stupidly successful Harry Potter franchise for Warners, has a big task in front of her:

Ms. Nelson’s new duties will extend beyond trying to create more blockbuster films featuring the DC Comics characters, company officials said, to exploiting more of its characters in other formats — opportunities that Warner executives clearly believed were being missed.

I for one, am more hopeful now than at any time in the past that the best characters in comics will finally get their due. Stay tuned!!

Fast Forward on “Flash”?

The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Geoff Johns, the writer of Green Lantern: Rebirth and the current (and utterly amazing) Flash: Rebirth has written a treatment and will be serving as a producer for a big-screen adaptation of The Flash. Johns is an excellent choice to shepherd this long-dormant project along – he has a feel for the character, which comes from an apparent passion for the history of the Scarlet Speedster. It also appears that a number of DC Comics properties are moving forward these days – in my opinion, it’s about time!

For now, I leave you with the Flash in action from Justice League: The New Frontier – Think fast, Flash fans!
