Superior. Uncanny. Indestructible: Upcoming Marvel NOW Promos

I don’t know about you, but I am (for the most part) really enjoying Marvel NOW, especially the X books, which are more interesting and readable than they’ve been seemingly in years. It also seems that DC’s mostly run out of steam with their New 52 gimmick; wonder if that’s the future for all of the Marvel NOW titles, a year or so from now?

Coming To Your Local Megaplex: DC & Dark Horse


– Joseph Gordon Levitt gives Godzilla the hard goodbye and tells Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy to piss off; signs on to Frank Miller’s Sin City sequel, A Dame to Kill For. As long as he’s not signing up for Frank Miller’s “I swear it’s not Batman killing Muslims” Holy TerrorJoining JGL in the City sequel are Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson and Jaime King; Dennis Haysbert is replacing the recently deceased Michael Clarke Duncan as the imposing bodyguard Manute.UPDATEJosh Brolin has been confirmed to step into the role of Dwight (played in the first movie by Clive Owen).

– Were you aware Guillermo Del Toro was working on a DC Comics movie called Dark Universe? From what I can tell, it’s going to be the more supernatural elements of the DCU all in one movie (owhich you can currently see on a monthly basis in Justice_League_Dark_0001Justice League Dark). GDT says the movie will feature John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Zatanna, The Spectre and more. Please let it be a good Constantine and not the Keanu Reeves version (which, admittedly, I do own on DVD). Additionally, please use the Alan Moore-era Swamp Thing and not..this. GDT talks to IGN here. Things to note: this isn’t a done deal and they don’t even have a screen writer yet, though Del Toro claims he has the “perfect” one.
