Okay folks, Elliott here with an update on the new episode situation. Jose and I recorded new segments on Sunday I was hoping to get a new episode up by now, but alas, my tech is not cooperating. I just got a new laptop to help make producing the vids a little easier, but now the newer version of Windows Movie Maker isn’t accepting the codex on the video files after I convert them from Quicktime. I DO have Sony Vegas Movie Studio, but that program is a bit more complex than what I’ve been using so the learning curve is a little steep. Anyhoo, I’m trying to get these episodes done by the weekend one way or another. So there you have it.

Carry on, E.

Last Friday Ryan Reynolds locked down the lead role as Hal Jordan in DC Comics’ Green Lantern film adaptation. He will also be appearing as Marvel Comics’ “Merc with a Mouth” Deadpool in that character’s own spin-off movie. And yet another comic character that Reynolds has been in negotiations to play, The Flash, looks to be happening as well. “Well, The Flash won’t have his own movie right off the bat,” explains Reynolds.

“After talking with Warner Brothers and DC Comics, we have all decided that after the Green Lantern film is completed that work on the long awaited Justice League film will begin.”

So will fans see Ryan team-up with actors Christian Bale as the Dark Knight and Brandon Routh as Superman? Well, not exactly. “This is all in the early stages mind you,” the actor says, “but plans are for me to write, produce and direct the film with myself playing the entire Justice League as well.”

“I mean, why not, right? Whenever I’m rumored to be playing a comic character in a film all I hear from the fan community is a resounding Fuck Ya! That would be great! Perfect Casting! So Warner’s and I thought let’s just give them what they want in the best way possible. In my early drafts of the script I’ve got Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Green Lantern and The Flash all in there”

When pressed as to whether or not Reynolds would actually be playing the character of Wonder Woman the actor responded, “How hard can it be? She’s just Superman with breasts right? I just gotta do a bit of cross dressing and BAM! I’m Wonder Woman. The feminist movement won’t have to worry their pretty little asses off. I’ll do them proud.”

We will have more details here on the CCW Blog when more information becomes available.

While skipping and singing my way through the interwebs today I came across a cool little site by way of the ever awesome Geeklolgie. With a name like “Jose” I really wasn’t expecting anything cool but low and behold:


Juggernaut Optimized for Scientific Exploration


Get Your Cyborg Name

Exploration does sound kinda boring but I wouldn’t mind being referred to as a Juggernaut. Looks like it’s about time to legally change my name for the better. Care to share your cyborg name with us?

And just in case someone feels the need the argue semantics about replicants and cyborgs not remotely being the same: Please just zip it….nerd.

The Hollywood Reporter is…um…reporting today that there are three frontrunners left for the role of Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern film. Those three individuals are: Bradley Cooper (Wet Hot American Summer), Ryan Reynolds (Waiting) and Justin Timberlake (WTF!?)

Is it me or does one of those names just not belong? Though it is well known that Geoff Johns is a huge ‘N Sync fan, this is just F’N ridiculous. I think I can safely say that if Justin Timberlake gets the nod then the “Green Lantern Movie Panel” at San Diego Con may not be ending in a huge celebration with DC and company patting themselves on the back for making such a brilliant choice. No, I don’t see things there ending well at all.

Hit the link for all the sordid details

(UPDATE): Looks like Ryan Reynolds has landed the role. And comic fandom lets out a collective sigh of relief.

Reynolds is Jordan
