Award winning author talks about Spidey sequel - 1/10/2002
Pultzer winning author Michael Chabon has spoken with Entertainment Weekly about why it is his destiny to rewrite the script for "The Amazing Spider-Man". "I'm completely the man for the job," said Chabon, who penned an early draft of 'X-Men' in the mid-'90s and recently adapted his 2000 comic-inspired saga, 'The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay,' for Sydney Pollack. "It's my destiny."

Chabon will replace current scripters Alfred Gough, Miles Millar and Spider-Man writer David Koepp, however elements from existings scripts will be thread into the story. Although under instructions not to reveal plot details, Chabon says he won't necessarily tone down the violence in the movie. "I don't feel that's my job,'' he says. ''That's not the audience [Columbia] wants to reach, and I don't blame them."

Gough Talks on Smallville, Spider-Man - 25/09/2002
Al Gough, producer of TV's Smallville, has spoken with Comics Continuum regarding the second series of the show.

"We were very happy with 'Vortex,'" Gough told The Continuum. "We felt that even though the tornado was over after the teaser, the story stayed interesting throughout, and we were able to set the table for Season 2. This is particularly true with the Lana/Clark dynamic and the Lex/Lionel dynamic. I hope what you will see this season is an even greater variety in the storytelling, and a deeper study of all of the characters and their relationships....as well as some kick-ass action, and yes....some kryptonite."

Gough also mentioned his involvement in Amazing Spider-Man, the sequel to the Spider-Man movie. He and Smallville co-writer Miles Millar have joined the project after a first draft by David Koepp, who wrote the first Spider-Man movie. "Miles and I actually completed two drafts of Spider-Man 2. We came back on after David Koepp completed his draft in mid July," Gough said. "We had a wonderful experience working with Sam and (producers) Laura Ziskin and Avi Arad. They have now handed off our script to Michael Chabon, who is a terrific writer."

Head over to The Continuum for the full story and nine pictures from "Vortex" - the first episode in the new series of Smallville.

Marvel's Universe Online - 20/09/2002
The pervasive Marvel Universe is about to go virtual thanks to a new deal with Vivendi Universal. The 10-year deal, which grants Vivendi the right to include the entire library of more than 4,700 Marvel characters in a virutal persistent universe, will have all the favorite Marvel heroes (such as Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk and The X-Men) available for the first time in an Online Massively Multi-Player (OLMMP) format in 2005!

"We believe there are only a few franchises existing today that are compelling enough to be a leader in the massively multi-player games market and Marvel's universe of superheroes is clearly one of them," said Ken Cron, Chairman and CEO of Vivendi Universal Games. "Marvel's enduring characters and fantasy-based storylines appeal to millions of fans worldwide. Its audience spans several generations and includes legions of consumers devoted to its comic books, TV shows and blockbuster movies. The combination of Marvel's strong character franchises with VU Games' global development and marketing capabilities is good news for both companies and great news for gamers."

If that's not enough to get you chomping at the bit, VU Games has also obtained the rights to release titles in multiple languages across all existing and future platforms enabling OLMMP game play, including PCs and console-based systems. (Read More)

ZENtertainment has posted a great preview of the first issue of Marvel's new WEAPON X series. "WEAPON X launches on the strength of Frank Tieri's writing, continuing the same suspenseful, go-for-the-jugular style which has continually kept his WOLVERINE run on the top-seller list," said series editor Mike Marts.

Crossgen to Lower Price, Reformat Compendia Series - 13/09/2002
In a recent press-release, CrossGen Comics have announced that they will be reformatting and lowering the price of upcoming volumes of their Compendia Series starting with Forge #9 and Edge #9. Going forward, all Compendia will be printed at 5 3/8" x 8 3/16", contain approximately 192 pages, and cost $7.95 US.
"This smaller trim size and lower price," said Ian M. Feller, Crossgen's media and press consultant, "compares favorably to a standard paperback, provides significantly more value than a standard graphic novel and is a comfortable purchase for mainstream readers."
Crossgen's Compendia series enables regular readers to get the equivalent of seven to eight single issues for the price of less than three of the single issue format. The new smaller size should also make carrying, transporting, and displaying both Forge and Edge easier, and still be more durable than a single-issue comic. (Read More)
