The first official look of Georgina Haig as Elsa the snow queen from Disney’s Frozen in ABC’s Once Upon A Time is here. You’d think with all the hoopla and presence Frozen has on pop culture, that fans would be would welcome a live-action Elsa no matter who she be or what she look like. Well, you thought wrong. With comments like “I’ve seen better costumes at Comic Con” and “Where’s the boobs” going around the net, fans aren’t thrilled about it.  (more…)

With the recently hot topic of Marvel posting release dates of a plethora of future flicks, everybody forgets that Warner Brothers has 11 comic book movies also in development. Like that bald-headed stepchild its parents keep ditching at the mall, DC has a habit of getting lost in the Hollywood shuffle and struggles to get attention. Today, we got a new piece of news concerning Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and his oft-reported plans of playing a superhero. No stranger to dropping hints, The Rock has a big mouth on Twitter and in interviews when it comes to donning tights on film. Problem is, he can almost never be trusted. But here he is again tossing clues like softballs about what seems like a done deal.  (more…)

It seems that comic-to-TV adaptations become more and more common, and now some of those involved with making the Walking Dead television show are teaming up with one of the best comic writers, Warren Ellis. In addition, even more comic properties seem to be headed to the small screen as Night Mary and Five Ghosts (pictured above) have been optioned.

Ellis, writer of such things as Iron Man: Extremis, Red, Transmetropolitan, and much, much more, has signed up with Walking Dead produced Gale Ann Hurd and Valhalla Entertainment to create an entirely new television project with Universal Cable Productions. No word on what it is yet, but this is Ellis’ first original venture into television, so it’ll be exciting to see what he comes up with. (more…)

Well, nothing much has changed, but we do have a few pics coming out of San Diego Comic Con showing off the batsuit once more. Scroll down to check them out. (more…)
