Supermax villains revealed?
“El Mayimbe,” who posts on the movie site Latino Review, says he got his hands on David Goyer’s script to the upcoming Green Arrow film Supermax. This is the film where Green Arrow’s thrown in a jail filled with a bunch of super villains … and according to Latino Review, that list of villains will include several of DC’s heavy hitters, like Shock Trauma, Cascade and the Aryan Nation — THE ARYAN NATION! You might remember them — or maybe you don’t — from Justice League Task Force #10. OK, actually there are some villains I’ve heard of before, like Pied Piper, Merlyn, Count Vertigo and Floronic Man. Go check out the post for more appearances and plot details.

–Waltz with Bashir, an animated documentary about the 1982 massacre at the Shatila and Sabra Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, received rave reviews at the Cannes Film Festival. The New York Times even compares it to Art Spiegelman’s Maus, saying the animation “initially works as something of a distancing device, giving you the space — intellectual, emotional — to process the story and its accumulating horrors.”
