News From The Dark Knight...

A Dark Knight Post



SMALLVILLE APPARENTLY MAY NOT BE HEADED FOR THE SCRAP HEAP.

According to Justine HARTLEY (Green Arrow), there may be more life in this old dog of a series yet. He announced during an interview that nothing's been decided as to the series' end, and there may be more seasons left for the fans.

I've gotten to the point that I don't really care....this series deserved a trip to the knackers yard 3 seasons ago.......the only shining light has been Hartley, who's green arrow has been great to watch.


Although Laura VANDERVOORT was a great piece of eye candy, she was sadly under-used and poorly written for by the writing staff. Young Miss VANDERVOORT has however landed on her feet with the new 'V' remake coming soon.....can't wait as I love the original series. I would imagine this means Supergirl/Power Girl will not return anytime soon.



CW: Just bin this crap or pull your finger out......focus on the future, which may have to be without SMALLVILLE.

DO WE EXPECT TOO MUCH??

Who's seen PUSH? Hands up anyone?? Hello???

Am I then only one? Well it's about time you went to the video store and rented it, because this movie is a pretty good attempt at an anti-hero superhero movie.

Released with minimal press in early 2009, PUSH stars Chris EVANS, Dakota FANNING, and DJIMMON HUSTON.

A group of young American ex-pats with telekinetic and clairvoyant abilities are hiding from a clandestine U.S. government agency. They must utilize their different talents and band together for a final job enabling them to escape the agency forever

In 1945, Hitler and his Nazis were using experiments on people who were born with special abilities to create an ultra-powerful army. However, the end of the war put a stop to this. What it didn't stop was other countries finding out and setting up their own branches, or divisions. Watchers, for example, are able to see the future in quick flashes and scenes. Movers can move objects and people with their minds. Pushers, on the other hand, can "push" people into believing that certain things are or aren't true (like hypnosis). Bleeders emit high-pitched sonic screams that make ears bleed, while Stitches can disassemble or reassemble any scar tissue. Sniffs can take any object and get a history of where it's been in relation to its owner, while Wipers can erase any amount of a persons memory. There are also Shifters; people who make objects appear to be something else (like illusionists, only more realistic), and Shadows, people whose ability is basically to block the effectiveness of other clairvoyants

Good premises (If not seen before in some form or another) and a good director which leads a smart movie, which is different enough to set this one apart.

I've heard nothing but criticism about this movie's faults, but are we all just being too fussy..............just watch this movie and enjoy the fantasy and action.

The DVD is out now. £12.00 in ASDA ..........bargin!!!!!

Here's the trailer:

X-MEN FIRST CLASS - NEW MOVIE ON ITS WAY


ROTTENTOMATOES.COM reported the following about the new movie....we'll see what happens with this one.

#1 X-MEN: FIRST CLASS TO STAR CYCLOPS, JEAN GREY AND BEAST

X-Men franchise producer Laura Shuler-Donner clarified this week one of the big mysteries and confusions about the upcoming X-Men: First Class project, although given the title and source material, it shouldn't have been a mystery at all. The confusion started when Variety a while back speculated that the movie would focus on the young mutants from the previous movies, like Kitty Pryde, Rogue, Iceman, etc. However, the actual X-Men: First Class comic specifically focuses on the five canon characters who were actually Charles Xavier's first students: Cyclops, Marvel Girl (Jean Grey), Beast, Iceman and Angel. Anyway, Ms. Shuler-Donner said, "It is the first class of Xavier's school, way back when, so it's young Scott, young Jean, young Beast, and that'll be really fun." Given that we know from the many commercials that Cyclops is a character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it appears that X-Men: First Class could be designed to stay within in the existing franchise's continuity, since what Laura Shuler-Donner did not say is that Angel or Iceman will be appearing in the movie (since they were retconned into being much younger in the movies).

So, the question I would have now as a fan is whether X-Men: First Class will just focus on those three characters, or might other mutants be brought in as Xavier's earliest students? Some possibilities that I might suggest are Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch (who would tie in nicely to the upcoming X-Men Origins: Magneto), Mimic (the first character added to the team after the original five) and perhaps some of the 1970's X-Men who haven't yet appeared in the movies, like Banshee, Sunfire and Thunderbird.
