Mark Millar on Superman Movie Sequel
Well, sadly, I'm a Marvel guy and we were surprised to find out that WB couldn't hire me for a DC property. They were incredibly nice and superbly apologetic about it, but when they discussed the matter seriously DC explained just how associated I am with Marvel Comics at the moment and it's against company policy to hire the competition. It's absolutely nothing personal. I spoke to some friends at DC and they explained this has happened with a couple of big Marvel writers in the last couple of years and I absolutely respect that.
My question is: How is that different when super-DC guy Geoff Johns wrote and produced for the Blade TV series (a Marvel property)?

Vertigo's I Am Legend Trailer Online
The trailer to Vertigo's series of online comics that serve as a prequel to the December film I Am Legend is up and in HD.
The first online issue, by Steve Niles and Bill Sienkiewicz, is available here.
Personally, I'm not a big fan of flat art that's later animated, but I'm not going to poo poo any attempt of comics moving ahead with more progressive media ideas.

Manga Cover Story in Wired Magazine
Hey all, check out the new issue of Wired Magazine. The cover story is about the manga explosion. It talks about how big it is in Japan, fan fiction and there's even a 10-page comic written by Jason Thompson. Definitely worth checking out.

Buffy Sing-A-Long Shutdown
The famed Buffy Sing-A-Long that has been going on in New York and L.A. (and recently Columbus and St. Louis) is dead.
"Sad news today: Buffy (and all other Fox TV shows) have been pulled from theatrical distribution. Criterion Pictures notified me last night that Fox has pulled the license for ALL their TV shows from theatrical exhibition. This is effective immediately, and of course includes Buffy and “Once More With Feeling”. This means that we have to cancel all upcoming bookings of the Buffy Musical production. "
In the ongoing performances they screened the Once More With Feeling episode of Buffy while fans sang a long to the music. Think Rocky Horror Picture Show, but with vampires.
Whedon supporters are trying to resurrect the performance (someone get them an urn of Osiris, stat!) through web petitions. You can sign it here.

WOLVERINE Movie Gets Re-Write
Empire Magazine reports that Hitman screenwriter Skip Woods is re-writing a draft of David Benioff's Wolverine script.
The new kid on the block is Skip Woods, who's recently scripted Hitman. That apparently impressed studio execs at Fox so much that they've invited him aboard our favourite adamantium-boned berserker's solo run - and even though the film is all set to start in November in Australia, this will be more than just a tweak of the script.Woods previously wrote Swordfish, which Hugh "Wolverine" Jackman of course starred in, but the scuttlebutt about Hitman suggests that he's come along as a writer since then. Otherwise, we'd be expecting to see bullet-time explosions, car chases and long scenes involving Logan topless and sunbathing - which, come to think of it, wouldn't be that bad.
