FX Greenlights ‘Powers’ Pilot

If you have not read Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s “Powers”, you should.  If you want to wait for it to show up on TV, you might get your wish.   According to BMB’s Twitter page, FX has ordered a pilot based on the superhero detective series.  Bendis simply had

Green Lantern: Emerald Knights Trailer Revealed

As you may recall, just prior to the release of The Dark Knight, Warner Brothers Animation released Batman: Gotham Knight, a direct-to-DVD anthology of six animated shorts, chronicling the exploits of the Caped Crusader between the events of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.   To prepare fans for the June release of

Telltale Games News Explosion!

Telltale Games, the digital publisher of episodic fan-favorites such as Sam and Max and Tales of Monkey Island, has announced plenty of exciting news about their upcoming projects!

Their current episodic project, Back to the Future: The Game, following the events of the legendary film of the same name, has released their second episode, “Get Tannen!,” for PC/Mac consumption.  The first episode, “It’s About Time,” is now available for the PlayStation Network and iPad crowds, should you be console-ly or tablet-ly inclined.  Having played the episode, I definitely recommend a playthrough – if anything, for the incredible voice acting of AJ LoCascio taking the reins of Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly.

Telltale’s next project, Jurassic Park: The Game, has been dated: April 2011!  Telltale takes you to John Hammond’s no-doubt-totally-safe Isla Nublar in an adventure that Destructoid describes as “Heavy Rain, but with dinosaurs.”  Interesting FYI – Jurassic Park is the very first Telltale game where the player can be killed. Check out the trailer above!  Jurassic Park: The Game is currently available for preorder at Telltale’s website for $29.99 during the preorder period, increasing $5 after release.

Hit the jump for details about Telltale’s four upcoming projects, including a long overdue reboot from your kingly past!

Redesign!

I know I’ve been pretty neglectful of updating this blog as of late.  If it weren’t for T3k, we wouldn’t have any posts at all, and I thank him for that graciously.  I haven’t been resting on my laurels entirely, though.  I’ve been working on this for a little while

Cobie Smulders to Appear as Maria Hill!

Henry Cavill Cast as Superman

And the world responds, “Who?” The trend of casting unknowns as the Man of Steel continues.  Henry Cavill,  (“The Tudors”, Stardust) has won the iconic role of Superman/Clark Kent in the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed film.   It is an odd casting choice, mainly because Cavill is British.
