I think surprise should probably in be quotes: In a post entitled “Another Surprise Revelation Hitting Batman in November,” DC’s Source blog links to a New York Post article that reveals that once Bruce Wayne is done returning, both he and Dick Grayson will be Batman. Er, Batmans. Batmen? They also offer a breakdown of which Batman will be appearing in which Bat-titles. If you’ve seen DC’s solicitations for comics shipping in November, and if you haven’t, you can see ‘em right here, then you would have already noticed that there are two different Batmen with two different costumes in the dozen or so Batman books, and which Batman was in which Bat-book was fairly apparent based on those costumes (Detective Comics was the only up in the air one, since that cover’s Batman had his gloves, belt and crotch area covered by his cape). Anyway, confirmation!
It’s never too early to start getting excited about the next Jason comic: The cartoonist shares a page from his next album, The Isle of 1,000 Graves, on his blog. According to Fantagraphics, it will be available here in the United States next May. (Via Flog)
Is James Gunn’s Super the least realistic superhero movie of all time?: I think it may be. I mean Liv Tyler married to Rainn Wilson? Come on.
“Comic book artist Frank Cho has made a career of being bawdy and bold”: The Washington Post has a nice big feature on Cho, which you can read here.
“No Name Superhero Iron Fist To Get His Own Movie”: Actually, his name is Iron Fist. You used it right there in your headline.
Asian-American comics character likely to be played by an Asian-American: Er, it probably doesn’t sound like news the way I framed it there, but apparently the role of Nico in the in-the-works Runaways movie wasn’t initially being specified as an Asian-American role, and now it is. Techland sums it up better. It’s weird because I could have sworn that movie had already come out, and that Dakota Fanning or Kristen Stewart had played Nico.
