Not one but two teaser trailers for Man of Steel have been released, essentially the same trailer with different voice-overs. From the look of the trailers the movie feels more like Terence Malick’s Man of Steel than a Zack Snyder film. Nice use of The Bridge Of Khazad Dum from the score to The Fellowship of the Ring and I love the visual of him breaking through the sound barrier.

Brilliant recreation of the awesome Adam Hughes picture. She makes a great looking Selina Kyle.

Daniel M. Kanemoto a fan of “The Walking Dead” comic book series has created an animated opening titles sequence for the upcoming television series. Using as a source the original comic book artwork by Charlie Adlard & Tony Moore he has produced a piece of work that rivals the best of that produced by professionals.
I cannot wait for the series to start and look forward to seeing the real opening titles and how they compare to this.

Marc Bernardin of the io9 blog asks Where’s My Goddamn Gotham Central TV Show?.
I have to agree. Not only is Gotham Central one of the best written comic book series of the last ten years but it is ideally suited to be adapted into a television series.
Gotham Central is a police procedural whose story focused not on Batman but instead on the Gotham City Police Department and the difficulties of its officers living and working in Gotham City replete with supervillains and also having to deal with less fantastical stuff such as corruption within in their own department.
There were rumours at the time of its publication that it might be adapted into a television series but following the failure of Birds of Prey it was decided by Warner Bros. Television not to pursue the project.
But that was before the success of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. They could and should capitalise on the renewed interest in Batman and Gotham City and as police procedurals are a staple of US television I believe it is not all that much of a gamble.
