This was one of my favorite episodes. The ones with Mxyzptlk were always cool, because he could basically do anything. I’ve got to locate the one where he uses a type-writer to place the SuperFriends into different situations.

Batman and Robin take the Wonder Twins to a 3-D movie. Mr. Mxyzptlk, however, decides to pester the SuperFriends by pulling them into the movie. Using his magic movie camera he can make the SuperFriends do or say anything he wants.

Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones (for the upcoming 4th film)

Amazing how one photo can create a feeling of excitement or anxiousness. As the talk (and years) of a fourth Indiana Jones film continued, I kept thinking to myself “Harrison Ford will be too old” and “What’s the point.” After seeing that one image, I take it all back. That doesn’t mean the 4th Indiana Jones film won’t suck, but seeing that photo makes me want to watch Raiders of the Lost Ark again and makes me hope that Indy 4 will be great.

Ron Weasley and his siblings stand with wands posed in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

The next image shows perfectly one of the reasons I love the Harry Potter series of films. There’s a continuity to the films that has never been achieved before (on the movie screen). It’s similar to watching 2-hour, big budget episodes of a television series like LOST or Heroes. It’s been cool to watch the kids in the Potter films grow up and I hope they all continue in the last two films of the series.

The Ultimate Nick fury character was visually based on Samuel Jackson

Ain’t It Cool News is reporting that Samuel Jackson is shooting a cameo as Nick Fury in the Iron Man movie. If this is true, then I hope it’s a setup for many more cameos and future roles to come.

In Marvel’s Ultimate line of comics, Nick Fury (who is based on Jackson) has dealt with nearly every hero/team in the Universe. He formed the Avengers team of that universe (named the Ultimates). With Marvel producing and developing Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor and others in house, let’s hope these links continue to build toward something practically unseen of in the movie world.

A promotional image gives us our first glance at what Spider-Man will look like in the Fall 2007 CW Network Spectacular Spider-Man animated series. A silhouette of the Vulture and Doc Ock’s arms can be seen in the image as well. Similar in style to “The Batman” and “Legion of Super Heroes,” this Spidey show should appeal to young and old fans alike.

Very cool looking. Can’t wait to see this one in the fall.
