SUPERHERO HEADLINES
In superhero news today, I first have for you the official titles for two superhero blockbuster sequels: CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
and THOR: THE DARK WORLD are the titles for the upcoming sequels with Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth. Meanwhile Ben Kingsley has been announced as The Mandarin in IRON MAN 3The biggest superhero news is that Dwayne Johnson is in talks to become LOBO in the movie adaptation of DC comic. The character is an interstellar bounty hunter and mercenary who travels the galaxy looking for his next target. The character was created in 1980s but became even more popular in the 1990s, when he was resurrected as a renegade biker. The film will be helmed by Brad Peyton, who worked with Dwayne in spring blockbuster JOURNEY II: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND.

ONCE UPON A TIME 2 TEASER
When it comes to trailer time, straight from this weekend's Comic Con I have for you the first clip announcing the second season of ABC's planetary hit show ONCE UPON A TIME. The extremely intriguing teaser reveals, in a very hidden way, who will be one of the new
characters in the second run of the fantasy show filled with fairy tale characters, and it's nobody else but Captain Hook! I've announced earlier that Sleeping Beauty (Sarah Bolger), Mulan, Aladin and Ariel the Little Mermaid will also all appear in the new season.

    1. well, ONCE UPON A TIME is mostly for those who still have a kid in them. There were boring episodes, it's true, but generally looking the show was very creative and unique. I'd personally leave out the crime element in it and focus on fantasy.

  6. Hollywood has gone crackers for super-heroes it seems. Comi-con is dominating the news outlets as well and when I was a kid I would have never thought it possible. I'm pleased to see it.

    1. yes, and I have a problem with it, since most of the Comic Con reports are trashworthy :) so it's difficult picking out a few decent ones, especially since other news are not available during this havoc :) But it love it since it's the festival of dear geeks :)

    3. 'tis true, and I applaud him for that, not that I don't like anyone who is confident enough to call himself a Rock :) Total opposite to myself since I call myself a Walrus :)
