    Legendary Comics Announces Matt Wagner & Simon Bisley, Paul Pope Projects [Update] Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    Today the Legendary Comics panel at San Diego Comic-Con unveiled that the company will publish two exciting new projects from esteemed artists, Paul Pope and Matt Wagner.

    Paul Pope’s art book, PULPHOPE, will feature more than 200 pages of Pope’s career retrospective and includes many never before seen pieces. Past projects from Pope include BATMAN: YEAR 100, Liquid and 100%. The book is scheduled for release this holiday season.

    THE TOWER CHRONICLES, from GRENDEL and MAGE creator Matt Wagner, and developed with Legendary’s Chairman and CEO Thomas Tull, is a supernatural action/adventure that tells the story of a bounty hunter with a hidden past. John Tower and his team of high-tech mercenaries are all that stand between civilians and things that go “bump” in the night.
    These both sound awesome.

    First Look At Vincent Paronnaud & Marjane Satrapi’s ‘Persepolis’ Followup ‘Chicken With Plums’ > The Playlist

    ”Chicken With Plums” returns to Iran once again, this time telling the story of Nassar Ali Khan, Satrapi’s great uncle and famed Iranian musician, who aspires to die after his wife breaks his lute. The film tracks the last eight days before he dies, as he is visited by family, memories and hallucinations. It once again sounds like a portal into Iranian cultural with the unique perspective only Paronnaud and Satrapi can bring.

    Isabella Rossellini, Mathieu Amalric, Maria de Medeiros and Chiara Mastroianni head up the cast.

    Persepolis was excellent. High hopes for this one.

    some obvious plot flaws, but comes with suspension of disbelief.

    I'm not too familiar with the comic, but liked the infusion of 1940s wartime, and accompanying propaganda.

    very entertaining. thumbs up

    avengers preview at end of credits.
    I feel the same way. You can pick the movie apart if you want to but if you employ a little suspension of disbelief the movie is very enjoyable. I liked a lot as well. The true test was I dragged the Mrs. to see this and this type of movie is not her thing, but after the movie was over she commented that she was surprised how much she liked it.

    The thing that bummed me out however is that it appears that Haley Atwell , who I found just downright irresistible, will not be in future movies.

    Can't wait for the Avengers.

    BoobyTrap and I saw Captain America last night. I will join the chorus of the It Was Fun song. Have to say, though, I was slightly disappointed with some of it. probably my own fault setting my expectations to what people have been saying about it, but I thought at times it was a little too... I dunno the word... Hollywood-y?

    For example, I thought there was a little too much CGI. I don't know how much of it was really necessary, but I feel like they could have done without a lot of it with some more work/effort. Just as an example.

    Having said that, though, I thought pretty much everyone did a good job. The Red Skull was ****ing amazing and I can't believe they made him look so good. Hayley Atwell was awesome and I will give any movie she's in from now on a little extra attention.

    It was fun. For sure.

    But I think I like Thor better.

    for the first 45 minutes or so i thought it was kate beckinsale. i suck.

    considering he woke up 70 years later, I'm assuming she'd either be dead or ridiculously old.

    definitely will have high hopes for the avengers

    Just as an FYI, Sharon Carter (presumably her daughter) is a SHIELD agent and Steve Rogers' (on again, off again) love interest in the comics.

    I assume that was her at the end since they looked somewhat similar.
