What the Wiki?

Superhero Week is winding down and I’ll have to do more research for articles in the coming weeks when Hulk and Batman hit the screens again. For this article I have found not one but TWO websites that you may find of interest.

 

http://en.dcdatabaseproject.com/

 

From this site you can find out just about everything you want, or don’t want, to know about the DC Universe. Read up on your favorite characters such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, the Green Lantern, and others. They have links to bios, weapons, the comics, etc.

 

Should you want to know the same about Marvel, here’s your link:

DC and the Warners

 

 

Seeing as yesterday I released the list of Marvel’s production slate, it was only fair to devote today to D.C. Sad to say, D.C. is not fairing so well. With the fact that the Justice League movie has been tabled due to George Miller’s financing problems, well… at least we have “The Dark Knight” being released on July 18th, right?

 

So, here’s where it all stands:

 

         Justice League. As said above, director George Miller (“Mad Max” trilogy, “Happy Feet”) is having finance options. Adam Brody and Common were attached to the project. This is officially tabled.

         Watchmen. Directed by Zack Snyder (“300”) this is a murder mystery set in an alternate 1985 where superheroes are a part of everyday society, and someone wants them all discredited. Carla Gugino, Patrick Wilson, and Billy Crudup star. Opens March 6, 2009.

         Superman: Man of Steel. Set for June 2009 release. No further details.

         Wonder Woman. A woman brought up in an Amazonian kingdom to be like the Greek gods and goddesses comes to the cityscape. No further details available.

 

That’s it. Huh.

 

Well, go see “The Dark Knight” on July 18, 2008!

In continuance with “Superhero Week,” today I’m bringing you news of fashion, pop culture, and high art. The New York Metropolitan Museum of Art (known as ‘The Met’ to its friends) is now showcasing the Fashion of the Superheroes. Dresses, costumes, print, pulp, statues and more are on display.
