With X-MEN FIRST CLASS, GREEN LANTERN, THOR, CAPTAIN AMERICA and CONAN already running through the theaters this summer, and AVENGERS, BATMAN, SUPERMAN, and TINTIN all on the way, it seems like Hollywood is burning through the comic book properties as fast as they can build sets and hire directors. After Flash, Aquaman and Namor are finished, they’ll essentially be out of super-heroes to exploit. But don’t worry, I’ve got connections in the biz, and I know some of the less publicized projects that are currently in pre-production, heading our way next year. I’ve even done storyboards for one of them (but I’m not allowed to reveal which, thanks to an iron-clad NDA).
But thanks to my sources, I can pre-preview a couple of upcoming films that are in the pipeline that comic fans are going to love. I know it seems impossible, but I swear, every one of these movies has been scripted, cast, and is up and shooting right now. The posters are all going to be in local theaters by December, but you guys get an exclusive here at my blog.
We’re NEVER going to run out of characters to film.
Personally, I’m looking forward to the Yellow Kid. I love Spike’s work. And is it just me, or does that look like George Wendt as Bouncing Boy? He’s a little too old to be called “Boy” at this point. (Not that Cruise is still a “lad” but he keeps his baby-face good looks as the years go by…)
Ty the Guy OUT!
