The Pit v3 Logo

It has been a while since we’ve done one of these, but welcome back to The Pit!

  • Have a mentioned recently how freaking awesome it is that Lost got an extra half hour added to its finale. Any additional Lost will make me excited! Nervously awaiting the finale.
  • MTV has put into production their own (tamed down) version of the hit UK series, Skins. The network also recently announced a TV adaptation of one of the best horror/zombie films of all time, Dawn of the Dead. I doubt Dead will ever see the air (and I hope it doesn’t).
  • Chuck hasn’t been renewed yet, WTF. Help support the show by watching it Online. We’ve added the latest episodes to our side bar via Hulu. Every viewer (both Online and on TV) helps!
  • Comic Preview: Amazing Spider-Man #631.  Hitting stores on May 12th, 2010, “Shed” continues as does the “Gauntlet” as Spider-Man is forced to battle the Lizard.  Will Curt Connors be able to regain control? Or will he make the biggest mistake of his life?
  • It was great to see Martha Kent and Perry White back on Smallville (even if they were awkwardly together). Here is hoping that either one of them returns to the show next season (Perry would make an awesome regular!!!).  Click here to watch the episode on the CW website.

We’ll be back with another edition of The Pit this weekend!

Site designer and (sometimes) writer PJFlip pointed out this funny video, of Will Ferrell pitching (in character as Rojo Johnson) for the Astros Minor League team.

If you have a funny video we should spotlight, send it to us! We also feature film trailers, short films, and other fun videos. Feel free to submit, at no charge 🙂

batman-brucewaynereturn1

Grant Morrison “killed” the original Batman, Bruce Wayne, and now he is bringing him back in “The Return of Bruce Wayne”.  The first issue of the six-part series hits stores next Wednesday, May 12th. Since the events of “Final Crisis”, Bruce Wayne has been displaced through time. This is his journey. Each issue features the cape crusader in a different era of time with a different artist giving each issue a distinct style. Issue #1 features art by Chris Sprouse.  Meet… “Caveman Batman”.

Other comics on sale Wednesday include:

  • Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis #1 from Marvel Comics. Warren Ellis continues his run with the X-Men, now pulled away from the main Marvel Universe.
  • The second issue of Dark Horse Comics’ sci-fi series Hellcyon comes out. The series reminds me of Avatar and is written and drawn by Lucas Marangon.
  • Image Comics has Savage Dragon #160 and Sam & Twitch: The Writer #1. Dragon sees the brutal end of the “Dragon Wars”, while Sam & Twitch is a new bi-weekly crime mini-series.

What will you be picking up this coming week?

Remember when I posted this image?

Bryan Singer X-Men First Class

I was gladly announcing that Bryan Singer had kissed and made up with Fox and would be returning to direct the newest X-Men flick (X-Men: First Class). Over the past two weeks, I have kept tight lipped with all of the news regarding the project. First Singer had to give up directing due to a commitment to a Warner Brothers film, then the rumors were flying that Singer would still produce with Matthew Vaughn directing. I didn’t want to get excited about the idea (hey, I was just burned by Singer being pulled off the project).

Now, Hollywood Reporter is saying that Matthew Vaughn will indeed be directing X-Men: First Class with Bryan Singer producing the film, which is expected to relaunch the X-Men franchise and get the bad taste of X3 and Wolverine out of our systems. I loved Stardust and very much enjoyed Vaughn’s latest effort, Kick-Ass (see the Mini Movie Review sidebar for more of my thoughts). I can’t put into words how excited I now am for this project. Lets just hope that Fox buds out and lets Singer and Vaughn go wild and make a truly memorable X-Men film.

The film will hit theaters two weeks before Green Lantern on June 3rd, 2011.

Save Chuck on NBC

Okay, so we might not have to Save Chuck yet, but until we have an official pick up for a new season we might as well remind NBC that the series has a huge fanbase. The awesome Chuck fansite, ChuckTV.net is hosting a series of “Flash Mobs” in four major cities (Seattle, Chicago, San Diego, and Philadelphia) on Monday.

A “Flash Mob” is a mass gathering that appears to be spontaneous. In the past they have been dance routines and staged shows. I’m not fully sure what they are planning for this Chuck based one, but I’m excited to see the outcome. Click here for more info and find out how you can get involved!

The first image of Chris Hemsworth as Marvel Comics’ Thor has been released!
