Thursday Evening Round-Up: The Veronica Takes Precedence Edition

June 8, 2007

Yeah, yeah, I know… there are a big number of readers here who have probably never even seen an episode of VERONICA MARS, and you’re all wondering when the regular blog posts start back up. I mean, wasn’t there some 80’s toy line that got optioned into a script today?

Seriously though, here’s all the news you probably already got somewhere else by now:

Oh, the new TRANSFORMERS theme song is sweet.

Sean Connery will NOT be appearing in Indy 4. Bummer.

The Speed Racer site is up and running!

Judd Apatow is being sued by someone who claims he stole the story for KNOCKED UP. We ain’t buying it. For a second.

CBR continues their weekly coverage of the big X-events.

Neil Gaiman is giving us a bit more DEATH confirmation. Puts a smile on the face.

AND… Chud’s got some interview snippets with Mr. Gaiman on the subject.

Enjoy 5 beautiful pages (plus cover) from Alan Burnett’s debut on SUPERMAN/BATMAN.

Continuing with all things Gaiman, three STARDUST TV spots are up over at the movie site. Click ‘Video’.

Shadowpact artist Tom Derenick is now DC exclusive.

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are re-teaming on IMPERIAL LIFE IN THE EMERALD CITY. Sounds interesting.

The Broken Lizard team (SUPER TROOPERS, BEERFEST) have a new pic in production: TAILDRAGGERS.

MySpace Comic Books has an exclusive first look at Devil’s Due’s DRAFTED.

This one will get people talking: WB is adpating Orson Scott Card’s EMPIRE.

Newsarama’s got some clips with FF2 writer Don Payne.

Assassin’s Creed, for PS3, XBox 360, and PC, hits this November. Looks very, very good.

Is my favorite comic book company from when I was a kid, coming back? Valiant apparently returns, but sans MAGNUS, TUROK, and SOLAR. Not sure how to feel.

Whew… I think I’m caught up now. Maybe.
