Another week and a lot is going on in the world of Entertainment! Lets take a look at what has fallen into the Pit this week.
- Our friends over at 141tv have posted the demo/pilot for one of my all time favorite cartoons, The Flintstones. It is really cool to see something like this uncovered. You get a short scene that showcases how they were trying to make a “modern stone-age family”. The animation is rough and the character designs are slightly different than the finalized ones. Definitely worth a viewing!
- The upcoming Superman reboot has a director, and he is very familiar with adapting comics and graph novels, 300 and Watchmen‘s Zack Snyder. With a strong script from Nolan and Goyer, I think that Snyder could do something really amazing with Superman. He is one of the best visual directors out there and this could be one of the best looking superhero movies to date. Hopefully Nolan ties this into his new Batman film with at least a reference or nod to a shared universe.
- There is a trailer out for an all new X-Men video game, X-Men: Destiny. Click here to check it out. The story for the game was written by comic writer Mike Carey, where gamers take on the role of new mutant recruits to the X-Men and the decisions you make in the game change the outcome and how the story unfolds. It is expected to be released in the fall of 2011. We have some time.
- There is an all new Chuck on tonight! You are watching the best show on TV, right?
- Lots of comic book news has been coming from the NY Comic Con, including the fact that next year Dark Horse will be launching Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 along with a new Angel ongoing and spin offs for both Spike and Willow. There is also talk about Buffy meeting the extended Angel cast, including Connor. Hopefully we can get some Connor/Dawn interactions, I think most fans have wanted that from the day both characters were introduced. Personally, I can’t wait for all the characters of the Buffy universe to interact and crossover. And I’m crossing my fingers that Oz rejoins the gang full time. He has been missed and there is no reason for him not to be in the mix anymore. Exciting stuff is ahead for Buffy fans. 🙂
