Posted on 18 October 2011 by Christian

“Very Soon, Your World Is Going To Be Broken.” What does this mean and why has Galactus returned? Well, that’ll be revealed in Fantastic Four #600, but hit the jump to check out this mysterious teaser by Lenil Yu…

Little is known about this teaser or what exactly it means, but thanks to Marvel we now have yet another mysterious image to ponder in the build up to the release of Fantastic Four #600. Accompanied only by the following line of text, what this all means will hopefully be revealed when the giant size issue hits stands in November…

COMICS: Marvel Reveals Plans For Ongoing Dexter Series By Creator Jeff Lindsey!

Posted on 17 October 2011 by Christian

They may now be owned by Disney, but that doesn’t mean Marvel have gone soft! At yesterday’s “Cup ‘O Joe” panel, it was revealed that the creator of the TV show will write an ongoing comic book series featuring the serial killer…

Well, this should please fans of Dexter! However, if like me you prefer the TV show over the novels, this may not come as such great news due to the fact that the planned comic book series will be written by the creator of the character and set in the world of Jeff Lindsey’s books – and as you may know, they’re pretty different from the Showtime series starring Michael C. Hall! Many thanks to Comic Book Resources for the following.

The panel wrapped with Quesada saying, “I don’t know if you guys are fans of this little series called ‘Dexter’…” He then revealed that novelist Jeff Lindsay will bring the popular character to comics with an all-new ongoing series with new stories set in the world of the “Dexter” novels (as opposed to the TV series).

And thanks to the guys over at Bleeding Cool for this photo taken at the panel in New York.

Bryan Singer’s Excalibur Is No More

Posted on 17 October 2011 by Christian

The X-Men director’s planned remake of John Boorman’s take on Arthurian legend has been shelved. Singer speaks to SFX all about it and reveals that plans for his Battlestar Galactica movie are still on.

As you may or may not know, Bryan Singer was developing a take on the Excalibur legend which was said to be a loose remake of the 1981 John Boorman movie of the same name. That film is considered a classic by many and while I am a fan of it there is no doubt that it has not aged well. So I was looking forward to seeing a new version of the story. Unfortunately it won’t be happening, at least not in the foreseeable future and not with Warner Bros and not with Bryan Singer at the helm. The director spoke to SFX at their annual Sitges Film Festival..
