"Within the EYE OF THE STORM, our creators will have the opportunity and freedom to paint the most realistic and unconventional view of what the world would really be like if there truly were metahumans amongst us.

|Marvel Movie Update - 3/05/2002|
|Comics Continuum has landed a promotional photo of Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Joe Quesada visiting the Daredevil movie set in Burbank Califonia. Quesada is pictured with director Mark Steven Johnson and Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige. I just loved Quesada's work on Marvel Knights Daredevil (especially the Echo saga) although a worthy replacement has definitely been found in Alex Maleev, who brings a new dimension to the title with his dark and gritty style. |
In other related news, it is rumoured that the Hulk movie teaser (featuring Eric Bana) will be included before most showings of Spider-Man. Here's hoping that this also happens in Australian cinemas!
