Warner Bros. wins victory in Superman lawsuit

A federal Californian judge has ruled that movie studio Warner Bros. has ownership in the one-half of Superman property rights created by Joe Shuster. The ruling comes as the studio is well into post-production on its next Superman film, Man of Steel, and as a different lawsuit brought on by the other Superman co-creator heirs (Jerry Siegel) winds its own way through the courts.

Comic book writer Mark Millar gets hired to oversee 20th Century Fox's Marvel movies

20th Century Fox has turned to one of Marvel Comics' top writers to consult on their Marvel-based superhero movies. That man is Scottish-born Mark Millar, the writer of such Marvel books as Old Man Logan, which told a tale of an senior-aged Wolverine, The Ultimates and his own creator owned work such as Kick-Ass, Nemesis and Wanted. Millar was also one of a handful of top Marvel Comics scribes picked to give creative briefs to Iron Man director Jon Favreau when he was putting together that movie.

The shooting tragedy and The Dark Knight Rises

I find myself conflicted over the way I should report the news about last night's senseless act of violence at the Aurora theater in Denver, Colorado. There is the fact that the shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises is newsworthy, if that word can be used to cover the murder of 12 innocent people and the injuries to nearly three dozen more.

Community creator Dan Harmon fired

They say that there are three sides to every story: your side, their side and the truth. Depending on where your heart is with NBC's beloved but lowly ranked Community show, maybe your truth lies with the story being told by its recently fired creator, Dan Harmon.

The network is calling Harmon's change of title from showrunner/executive producer to consulting producer a creative move. Over on Harmon's Tumblr blog, he's calling it by a different word...actually, several words and they all pretty much line up under the definition of being fired.
