Trending Wednesday In TV/Film: GI Joe, Retaliation Postponed

This decision is puzzling people all over the internet today: But why the delay at all?

Peter Weller Is Batman In Two-Film Adaptation Of The Dark Knight Returns 

Frank Miller and Klaus Janson’s comic has been divided into two films for this adaptation, the first of which will be released later this year, the second in 2013. Given those particular red X-es on the calendar I would expect a big unveiling at Comic-Con, and that may yet happen, but Heat Vision at least have some of the cast list and a few more details to get us warmed up ahead of time.

Michonne Drops Her Cloak For A Good Walking Dead Season 3 Promo Shot

The next season of The Walking Dead is in production now, picking up the story somewhere around issue 19 or 20 of the comics, in some fashion. The last episode of the recent run ended with the appearance of Michonne, the sometime lawyer who is incredibly proficient in slicing and dicing with her shiny katana.
