Bits and bobs from around the interwebz:
- I’m sure most of you have heard by now, but JJ Abrams will be directing the next Star Wars movie. It’s still way too early in the development process for script or casting news. I’m not sure how I feel about Abrams getting the gig, but I did enjoy his version of Star Trek. I’m cautiously optimistic.
- Doctor Who returns March 30!
- John Jackson Miller announced on Facebook that Christie Golden will also be attending MidSouthCon this March. Ms. Golden has written novels for Star Wars, Star Trek and World of Warcraft in addition to her original fiction.
- While at the comics shop last week, we saw where JJM will also be at the Horn Lake, MS branch of the First Regional Library on March 20 for a book signing while he’s in town for MidSouthCon. Costumes are encouraged.
- SUPERMAN: UNBOUND will be the next DC Universe Animated movie. Yay, the Superman-Batman movie rotation remains unbroken. :/ The trailer is here.
- Deadline is reporting that Revenge’s Emily VanCamp has been cast as the female lead in Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier. While who she is portraying hasn’t been announced, she sure looks like Sharon Carter to me. ScarJo’s Black Widow better have a cameo in this movie, Marvel. I will not be amused if this does not happen.
- Last, but not least, the “extended” preview of Iron Man 3
