2011 has definitely been the summer of big comic movies. Thor, X-Men: First Class, Green Lantern, and of course Captain America. Next summer, we’ll get The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers – something that I’d never think I’d ever see on the big screen. Comic book culture and superheroes are bigger than ever.

Buns of Steel

Oh … My … Goodness! The current TeeFury shirt of the day has got me all giddy inside! Some of you might know that I am a BIG fan of the Man of Steel so this funny tee featuring the butt from of that super dude from Krypton has got me all excited. This will probably be my second TeeFury purchase, with the first being that Holy Indie Stickup, which featured my second favorite DC character, Batman.

So what does this all mean? It means that TeeFury should print more shirts parodying superheroes – that’s what this all means!

December The Month of Superheroes at Glennz Tees

Glenn Jones, the popular indie tee designer from New Zealand, has come out with his newest design and second for the month of December at Glennz Tees. Surprisingly, it’s another Superhero based tee – this time playing on Batman! The new tee, titled “Gotham’s Youth” features the ever popular bat logo with the always funny bunny ears. Hilarious!

Earlier in the month, he released a brilliant conceived tee titled “Slowing Down” which depicts an aged Flash, the speedy hero from the DC Universe.

Needless to say, I want both of these!

Spider-Man 4 and 5 Coming Soon?

Those of you who saw that ad on eBay regarding visiting the set of Spider-Man 4, but was hesistent to place a bid, might kick themselves (auction went for $28,100) when they find out Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi have reportedly been locked in for Spider-Man 4 and potentially Spider-Man 5. As reported first on Nikki Finke’s Deadline Hollywood Daily blog, the popular actor and director will be back for the 3rd and 4th sequel in the hugely successful Spider-Man franchise. To my chagrin, Sony wants Kirsten Dunst back to play the part of Mary Jane, but not deal has been made thus far.

Principal photography for James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Rundown) penned Spider-Man 4 will not begin until next fall, in time for a May 2011 release. Sony is reportedly pushing to have Spider-Man 4 and 5 shot back to back, much like what Disney did with The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. 

There has also been talk of who the main villain may be in Spider-Man 4. Although no one has officially signed on for a villain role in Spider-Man 4, most of the speculation points to Dylan Baker’s character of Dr. Curt Connors (Peter Parker’s college professor), who appeared in Spider-Man 3. Comic afficionado’s know that Dr. Connors turns into Dr. Lizard in comic books. Will we see the Lizard in Spider-Man 4? Other rumored villains include Black Cat, Vulture and Carnage, but some insiders think that these villains might be saved for a possible Venom spin-off. 

Are you guys excited for a back-to-back Spider-Man 4 and 5? Or are you guys web slinging hopeless romantic?

Superman Trilogy Coming?

Now I know that in the past I’ve mentioned that I think Bryan Singer should be allowed to continue the Superman series he started with 2006’s Superman Returns, but, the chances of that happening is looking pretty grim. Out goes Singer’s Man of Steel and in come Millar’s Superman trilogy, possibly. 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for Singer continuing what he started, but if Millar were given a chance to reboot or re-invent the franchise I would be all for it. Mark Miller, just in case  you’re not familiar with him, is the man behind Wanted, you know that summer blockbuster with Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy. Millar actually wrote the original Wanted comics and has done a ton of work within the different comic universes, including the big guns, DC and Marvel. 

In 2003 he wrote the critically acclaimed Superman: Red Sun, the premises of which was built on the question of what would things be like if Superman were raised in the Soviet Union. I wouldn’t care to see Soviet Superman on the big screen, but I do think that Millar has the potential to bring something new to the Superman franchise and in effect re-energize it.

Having said that, MIllar has gone on record in a recent interview with G4 and has said that he already has “plans” to make a Superman trilogy, that would be shot back to back much like the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

“I’ve had this plan for like 10 years for a big three-picture Superman thing, like a big Lord of the Rings epic, starting over from scratch again with a seven-hour Superman story. And hopefully release them one year after another,” continued Millar. “If it works out, we’ll have to start shooting next summer.”

Millar has even been reported as saying his vision of Superman is:

“Superman for the 21st Century, keeping everything we adore, but starting from scratch and making the kids love it as much as the 30-somethings.”

So it looks like the Superman saga continues. And let’s not forget, Mark Millar is a writer and not a movie director, so there is a possibility of Singer and Millar working together. The possibility of this happening, especially with Singer’s already existing vision, is slight to zero. But imagine for a moment what a creative combination that would make, much like the Nolan-Goyer combo they’ve got going for the Batman franchise. 

Joker Impersonations

A user by the name of CiscoOreo has been uploading some pretty spot on Heath Ledger Joker impersonations. If you look away from the video and just listen to the audio, you’d think it was Heath himself. Pretty cool.

Cher Not Catwoman

Well, I mentioned earlier last week that Cher was rumored to be cast as the next Catwoman. Fortunately, it looks like those casting rumors have been debunked! Warner Bros. representative has officially stated that “those casting rumors are untrue.” Thank goodness, watching an aged Catwoman purrring on the big screen in the final installation of Nolan’s Batman series would have NOT have been a prrrr-fect ending to a thus far perfect series of films.

I’ve already discussed a bit here why I think Catwoman should be passed on for another quality villain, but should Nolan decide to bring her back for a third time to the big screen then these would be my top 3 choices of actresses to play The Cat.

1. Angelina Jole. This one is a no-brainer. She looks perfect for the role and imagine how she would look in that Catwoman suit (no, not the disastrous Halle Berry version).

2. Eva Green. She played the nice girl turned naughty girl, Vesper Lynd, in 2006’s Casino Royale. She’s fresh and she’s young and I think Nolan would have a lot to work with should he pick Green.

3. Hilary Swank. Having won two academy awards, she’s definitely got the acting chomps to pull off the role as the expert burglar. She doesn’t have that sexy look of an Angelina Jolie, but she does scream female empowerment, which is what Catwoman is all about. If Nolan were to portray a Batman: Year One type Catwoman than I think Swank would fit the bill. 

Who do you guys think would be the perfect Catwoman?
