TNT's Titans Aims to be 'Very True' to 'Groundbreaking' Superhero Property
By Matt Webb Mitovich / May 13 2015, 11:44 AM PDT

Recently installed TNT president Kevin Reilly knows he has something special in a live-action adaptation of the Teen Titans superhero property, and as such, patience is a virtue.

(excerpt)

Asked for a status report on the project, Reilly told TVLine at TNT’s Upfronts luncheon, “Akiva’s [Goldsman] been very busy doing some other things,” but it’s his hope that “maybe this summer” they will lock casting and ramp up production.

A look at The Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus

INFINITY GAUNTLET OMNIBUS (15 Jul 2014)
Marvel Comics
THE INFINITY GAUNTLET OMNIBUS
Sunday, July 27, 2014 by Matt


When I was a youngster, I enjoyed the occasional Marvel comic, mostly Spider-Man stuff. But it was a very casual relationship up until around age 13 or so. I became a regular reader of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN with issue 360, cover dated March of 1992. Only a few months later, I was reintroduced to the larger Marvel Universe when a school friend showed me his copy of THE INFINITY WAR #1, a series somewhat along the lines of SECRET WARS, which I had loved as a child due to the epic scope and the sheer number of superheroes involved. So basically, you could say that I owe my decades of Marvel fandom to Jim Starlin's "Infinity" franchise. I'm sure I would've branched out beyond Spider-Man on my own; I was already familiar with the other Marvel characters -- but INFINITY WAR jump-started that transition.

This book isn't about the THE INFINITY WAR, however -- this Omnibus collects the previous, first series in Starlin's "Infinity" series -- hence, THE INFINITY GAUNTLET OMNIBUS. And while I view WAR as a superior installment, both nostalgically and storywise, THE INFINTY GAUNTLET is nothing to sneeze at -- nor is this book which collects the full epic.

Wizard World Minneapolis
We are very excited to cover Wizard World Minneapolis again, now in its second year at Minneapolis Convention Center, in Minneapolis. …
Peelander-Z
Superhero Japanese punk band Peelander-Z is currently on tour in support of their latest album, Metalander-Z, stopping by the Turf Club in St Paul last night, September 19th. …

Wizard World Minneapolis officially began its pop culture weekend takeover last night, with a kickoff event held last night at the rotunda in the Mall of America.  In addition to a trivia contest for passes and prizes, celebrity guests Michael Rooker, Kristy Swanson, Jason Mewes, and artist Arthur Suydam.

The contests and Q+ A were moderated by on-air talent from the local CW station, who were also showing off a car adorned with Flash illustrations, that is planned to be given away later this fall.  Additionally, a local superhero collective and a few fans dressed up to show off some cosplay for the attending fans.

Michael Rooker
Michael Rooker was by far, the most animated of the group, arriving late to the proceedings after a last minute coffee run, but more than forgiven by the loyal fans.  When asked about his favorite role, he pointed to the recent Stan Lee Cameo School 2 min. spot for Audi, which he said was a lot of fun, and paid him the most per on-screen second, in his career.

Kristy Swanson
Kristy Swanson was asked what her reaction was when first hearing Buffy was to be optioned as a TV series, and she was first confused if it would be a mini-series or ongoing, then glad that the character continued to develop in a different format.

Jason Mewes
Jason Mewes revealed that Kevin Smith was a little under the weather, which is why he didn’t make it town earlier in the week, and that they would like to shoot Mallrats 2 in the same Eden Prairie Center Mall, but that state filming tax incentives, would likely make Smith scout elsewhere.  Both Mewes and Mallrats co-star Rooker reveled in being in a Minnesota mall again, some 20 years later.

Arthur Suydam
Arthur Suydam is probably best recently known for his Marvel Zombies work, but when asked about his early artistic influences, revealed he attended a NYC arts school than emphasized the Renaissance master painters and had their students learn by copying the great works.

A select lucky few in the crowd got Wizard World weekend passes and tickets to an Avengers: Age of Ultron screening, happening immediately after the panel—Wizard World Minneapolis opens its doors today.

For music fans, one of Vu’s favorites, the colorful and fun Peelander-Z plays the Saturday After Party at Pourhouse in downtown Minneapolis, free before 10:30 to anyone with a Wizard wristband.
