Overat Newsarama, there's a pretty good interview with Chris Claremont, legendary X-Men writer. The bulk of both X-Men movie plots appear to have been lifted from his run on the X-books. Surprisingly, he's gotten no credits for the on-screen versions.

This new show, Who Wants to be a Superhero? could be campy, escapist fun, or it could be incredibly lame. Given Stan Lee's recent deft touch I'm expecting the llamas to be in full effect.

Apparently Stan Lee's last splurt of creativity is "STRIPPERELLA: THE WILDEST MOST EXOTIC SUPERHEROINE OF ALL CREATED BY STAN LEE" and I'm quoting there folks.
This is going to be an animated series on TNN. See right there, problem. A show like Stripperella has got to be on HBO or Showtime doesn't it?
It's also a one-shot comic book to be published by Humanoids Publishing in June. Read on for more details and preview pages.

Here's an advance review of the Wallace and Grommit game which will be released to tie in with the 2005 movie. The game's premise is that an evil penguin, Feathers McGraw, has taken over the zoo that's imprisoned him and enslaved its inhabitants as part of his jewel-smuggling operation. Wallace and Gromit (mostly Gromit, who the player controls throughout the game) have to free 24 levels worth of imprisoned baby animals in order to free the zoo from the penguin's domination.

Attaced as a trailer to the movie "Dreamcatcher" (opens March 21) will be a nine-minute computer-animated film that revisits the dark yet flashy science-fiction universe of "The Matrix."
The short is intended as a prelude to "The Matrix Reloaded. For weeks, the short, called "Final Flight of the Osiris," has been heavily promoted on television and in computer magazines. "Final Flight" will offer what may be the most sophisticated expression of photorealistic, fully computer-generated imagery to date on the big screen.
