Access Hollywood has posted a deleted scene from Marvel Studios’ Iron Man. The scene takes place just before Iron Man leaves to fight terrorists in the Middle East. He sets up a party, makes sure to be seen and uses three beautiful women as his alibi as he goes to fight crime.

While it is a cool scene, I’m really glad it was deleted. I understand the need for the secret identity , but this just seems like a long drawn out thing for a “hero” to do while people are dying and need his help.

A key ingredient to making a film is selling it and getting it seen. To help do that it is very important to have an awesome poster, website, DVD cover, etc. In designing any of those, you have to make sure you have the right font. You can’t just whip something up fast and use a default font on it.

Thankfully we have free sites like 1001Fonts. I have used 1001 for the past few years. They are constantly updated and have such a wide variation of fonts. They showcase both original stuff and fonts that mimic popular shows and movies. The site is set up around user feedback and the creators of the fonts have a direct line of communication with the people using them. Heck, if you wanna, you can even try to make your own fonts and post them on the site. You can take their site tour here.

I never thought that this past year’s (WGA) writer’s strike would have had positive repercussions, but after seeing this alternate ending to the second season of Heroes, I’m glad the writers went on strike. You see, due to the strike, the creative forces behind Heroes scrapped the current storyline they were developing and went into a completely different (and much better IMO) direction; which will lead into season 3 “Villains”.

This is a vision of what could have happened (a future which has been diverted)…

Pulp 2.0 posted a very interesting article showcasing just how to write a Sci-Fi Channel original movie. The article breaks down the channel’s seven act structure and describes the elements that are needed for a script to be considered for the network and independent production companies that produce for the network.

DC Comics and the makers of Mortal Kombat are teaming up for one of the strangest video game crossovers ever, pitting characters from both universes against each other in a fighting game. At the San Diego Comic-Con, the makers of the game brought some footage and described various features and characters within the game. Well, they have been kind enough to share that footage online…
