“I’m not afraid… I’m angry.”
I gotta say that this latest trailer has got me PUMPED! All the other trailers were a nice tease of what we all expect, but this trailer has everything! Leave your comments below.
Somewhere, Pacific Ocean, (AP) – Scientist have discovered a new island forming in the Pacific Ocean. The island, located roughly halfway between Midway and Guam, appears to have formed quickly within the last week. Upon closer examination the new land mass appears to be made entirely of man made materials, such as paper, foam, cardboard. plastic bottles and bits of cloth. The debris has been identified as swag, a filthy material often used to lure nerds out of their basements to conventions, and Oceanographers have traced the current that carried it back to the San Diego area of Southern California.
The new island has left the scientific community in shock. “Traditionally, new land formations are only viable through volcanic activity over long periods of time,” says Dr. Alan Dupree of the Wake Island Pacific Rim Research Center. “The idea that a new island can form out of the unwanted left overs of nerd culture is, quite frankly, both amazing and frightening.”
When asked to comment on it Aquaman, ruler of Atlantis and official spokesman of the seven seas, was quoted as saying, “this is irresponsible and typical of surface dwellers. However, I did find a pretty sweet Shark Week bag in the mix.”
Tentative names for the island have included Swagville and Swag Francisco. The island is growing rapidly and is expected to reach the size of the now infamous BP Gulf Coast oil spill before long. Surprisingly it has quickly developed its own ecosystem, as birds, seals, turtles and fleas have begun inhabiting the island. Those downwind of the island have reported a sickening smell of stale sweat and body odor emanating from the land mass and at least one helicopter reportedly spotted what appeared to be a few zombie like humanoids shuffling across the surface.
Despite this startling discovery, tensions are high as many Super Villains, including Magneto, C.O.B.R.A and Lex Luther have rushed to make their rightful claim to this new realm and establish their headquarters there.Alternately the new island is being considered as the future site of Comic Con.

The director of “300” and “Watchmen” will work side-by-side with producers Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas, the tandem that pulled the Batman character back toward cinematic credibility with the films “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight,” the latter grossing more than $1 billion at theaters worldwide. David S. Goyer (“Batman Begins”) is writing the script and shares the story credit with Nolan.
The producing team also includes Charles Roven (“The Dark Knight”) and Deborah Snyder , the director’s wife and filmmaking partner. Thomas Tull of Legendary Pictures will executive produce. Snyder is best known for R-rated fare — with the exception of the just-released “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” — but he said his passion for comics and a character that dates back to 1938 likely earned him the coveted job of relaunching the signature franchise.
“I can’t say why they came to me other than the fact that they know I have a fondness for the character and a real desire to understand him and present him to a new audience,” Snyder said. “The challenge is huge but you know with Chris and Emma and Debbie I have a lot of people I can rely on. And Chris and David have given this the shape with a great story. It is a hard character to crack.”
Snyder met Nolan at ShoWest in Las Vegas in March and their conversations about the possibilities of the Superman revival gathered momentum through the months. The modern superhero cinema puts an emphasis on dark antiheroes and haunted souls, such as Batman and Wolverine, or lovable hard-luck cases, such as Spider-Man and Hellboy while Superman has been dismissively described as a “big blue Boy Scout” for his wholesome aura and that classic mission statement of fighting for ”truth, justice and the American way.” The perception that the character may have a bigger past than future may have been reinforced by the solid but unspectacular success of Bryan Singer’s “Superman Returns“ in 2006.
Snyder said the modern movie mode does present a challenge in a pop-culture era of Red Dead Redemption and “Inception” but he refuses to think that a character that rivals Mickey Mouse and Santa Claus in recognizability can ever be considered a relic. “I think he is viable, yes,” Snyder said. “He endures. We all want to know, ‘How will he come to us now?’ He is the biggest and the baddest of them all. The greatest of them all, right? We all want to know how the next chapter takes shape. I want to know how it will take shape.”

2 years ago, Comic Con premiered DC’s ‘Superman: Doomsday’ Thurs. night before the big weekend and this year it will be showing ‘Green Lantern: First Flight’. Babbleon5 will plan to attend and provide an early review of the film before it’s DVD release the following Tues.
I thought ‘Batman: Gotham Knight’ was incredible and ‘Wonder Woman’ was fairly enjoyable, but I think that I’m most excited about seeing a Green Lantern story.
