SDCC: Director Joe Johnston on Captain America

Source: comingsoon.net

July 21, 2010

Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston told the Los Angeles Times the screen version of the hero will be true to his roots up to a certain point.

"We're sort of putting a slightly different spin on Steve Rogers," said Joe Johnston, "He's a guy that wants to serve his country but he's not a flag-waver. We're reinterpretating sort of what the comic book version of Steve Rogers was."

"He wants to serve his country, but he's not this sort of jingoistic American flag-waver," Johnston added. "He's just a good person. We make a point of that in the script: Don't change who you are once you go from Steve Rogers to this super-soldier, you have to stay who you are inside, that's really what's important more than your strength and everything. It'll be interesting and fun to put a different spin on the character and one that the fans are really going to appreciate."

SDCC: Hamill, Conroy Lead DC Universe Online Voice Cast

by SuperHeroHype

Jul 21st, 2010

And check out the rest of the cast members!

Sony Online Entertainment announced today the voice cast for "DC Universe Online":

Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) announced today that two of animation's most well-known talents lead a triple-A cast of voice actors in providing their skills for the upcoming online action game, DC Universe™ Online. Mark Hamill (Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: The Animated Series) will once again voice The Joker, while Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League Unlimited, Batman: Arkham Asylum) will bring to life everyone's favorite dark knight, Batman.

"We're excited that not only will Mark and Kevin bring their talent back to the DC Universe as part of DC Universe Online, but we've hit the jackpot with a full cast that are veterans of movies, TV shows and games that our fans are crazy about," said Sony Online Entertainment Vice President of Development, John Blakely. "Several of these actors are recognized as the definitive voices for these characters, and will help us in creating an authentic and exciting experience for fans when they get in the game."

Besides becoming an international pop-culture icon as the protagonist in George Lucas' original Star Wars trilogy, Broadway veteran Mark Hamill's career has encompassed virtually all aspects of modern media available to an actor – stage, screen, television, movies and video games. Hamill received a Drama Desk Award Nomination for Outstanding Actor in a Musical for Michael Stewart's Harrigan 'n' Hart. He has also performed in hundreds of TV cartoons: Batman: The Animated Series, The Simpsons, Ren & Stimpy, Samurai Jack, Spider-Man, Powerpuff Girls, The Hulk, Fantastic Four, Little Mermaid, Phantom 2040, Johnny Bravo, Fairly Odd Parents, The Flintstones, Jonny Quest and Scooby Doo. He's also provided his voice for several animated feature films: Joseph, Prince of Dreams, Balto II, Wizards, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Batman Beyond: The Return of the Joker, for which he received two "Annie" award nominations.

Kevin Conroy is best known to audiences for his role as Batman in Batman: The Animated Series. Conroy continued to voice Batman in the subsequent series The New Batman Adventures, Batman Beyond, Justice League, and Justice League Unlimited. His tenure in the role also includes the films Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero, Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, and Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman. He also voiced Batman for the character's guest appearances in Superman: The Animated Series, Static Shock and The Zeta Project. Conroy has also voiced Batman in the DC Universe Animated original movies Batman: Gotham Knight, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, and Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. In a full tally of his performances, Conroy has portrayed the superhero longer than any other actor in either live-action or animation.

The rest of the cast will provide voices for the following iconic characters:

Adam Baldwin (Superman) –Baldwin has amassed an impressive and expansive range of film roles, from large studio projects to gritty independent films. Baldwin has worked with many of Hollywood's most successful actors and directors, including Stanley Kubrick, Kevin Costner and Richard Donner. In the sci-fi world, audiences know Baldwin for his starring role on Firefly recurring roles on The X-Files, Angel and The Visitor, and guest starring roles on Stargate SG-1 and the new The Outer Limits. He followed up his Firefly character once again in Joss Whedon's motion picture, Serenity. This fall, he returns as John Casey in the NBC drama Chuck.

Gina Torres (Wonder Woman) – Currently starring in the new ABC Family series Huge, Torres' most notable television credits are her performances as assassin Anna Espinosa on Alias and Zoe Washburn, the shotgun-toting mercenary on Joss Whedon's Firefly (and the feature film Serenity), in addition to her roles in Xena: Warrior Princess and Cleopatra 2525, which earned her an ALMA award. Her film credits include The Matrix Revolutions, The Matrix Reloaded, I Think I Love My Wife and Hair Show. She has also voiced the characters of Vixen in the Justice League animated series and Superwoman in the DC Universe animated feature Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths.

James Marsters (Lex Luthor) – James Marsters may best be known for the role of Spike, the cult favorite punk-goth vampire that he played for six seasons on the series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and then on the final season of the spin-off show Angel. He is a headlining fan favorite at conventions worldwide honoring the show and sci-fi genre. Marsters played the role of Brainiac on the series Smallville and can also be seen in his recurring role on the hit BBC America show Torchwood, playing the ruthless and sexually deviant Captain John, as well as his recurring role on Battlestar Galactica as Barnabas Greeley. On the big screen, Marsters was featured in the live action adaptation of the hit Japanese video game Dragon Ball, in which he portrays Lord Piccolo, the evil war lord set on destroying the earth. Marsters' upcoming role will be as the recurring villain on CBS's reboot of the classic series Hawaii Five-O.

Michelle Forbes (Circe) – One of the industry's most prolific actors, Forbes brings an intense quality to every role she tackles. She has appeared in such independent films as Kalifornia and Swimming with Sharks. Last year she made her debut in the groundbreaking HBO series True Blood starring as Maryann, a wealthy local who has mysterious intentions. She has also appeared as Kate Weston in the critically acclaimed HBO series In Treatment. In 2005, Forbes received rave reviews when she starred as Admiral Helena Cain in the intelligent and politically charged series Battlestar Galactica.

In DC Universe Online, players will be thrust headlong into an action-packed online world based on the heroes, villains and landmarks of the DC Universe. In the game, players step into the role of the next legendary superhero or villain and are given the choice to save or conquer the universe online. Along the way, players will be fighting alongside or against iconic DC characters as well as other players for the fate of the DC Universe.

DC Universe Online is scheduled to ship November 2, 2010 for both the PC and the PLAYSTATION® 3 Computer Entertainment System, and his expected to carry a rating of "T" (for Teen) by the ESRB. For more information, check out the product website at www.dcuniverseonline.com.

SDCC: Comic-Con Poster for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

Source: comingsoon.net

July 21, 2010

CHUD has debuted the Comic-Con poster for horror-thriller Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. The site's owner, Nick Nunziata, is associate producer on the film, which was co-written by Guillermo del Toro. Troy Nixey is directing the January 21 release, starring Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce and Bailee Madison.

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark centers on a young girl (Madison), sent to live with her father and his new girlfriend, who discovers sinister creatures that live underneath the stairs. She is fascinated by them -- until they prove dangerous. Pearce will play the father, an author frustrated by his daughter's tales of monsters, not believing her even when his girlfriend (Holmes) backs her.

UK Quad for Gareth Edwards' Monsters

Source: comingsoon.net

July 21, 2010

Digital Spy has posted a first look at the new UK Quad for writer/director Gareth Edwards' Monsters, coming to limited theaters on October 29 and starring Scoot McNairy and Whitney Able. You can click on the poster below the synopsis for a bigger version.

Six years ago previously, a NASA probe returning to earth with samples of an alien life form, crashed over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear, and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain "the creatures"... The story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.

Cut! Print! That's a wrap!

I had so much fun this year. They've all been fun, but this seriously was the best comic con I've had in a long time.

First, a big thanks to the toy companies: Georg Brewer, Shawn Knapp, Jim Fletcher and Syndee Barwick of DC Direct, Scott Neitlich, Bill Benecke and the Four Horsemen of Mattel, Dwight Stall, Jerry Jivoin and David Vonner of Hasbro's Marvel team, Randy Falk of NECA and Chuck Terceira of Diamond Select toys. Thanks for taking the time to chat with me and get the pictures, folks!

Special Thanks to the Critical Mess guys! JQ3x29yz4a, aka David Galan and Mike S. They helped me out quite a bit and I don't think I would have made it through this weekend without them.

Big thanks to everyone that didn't stab someone in the eye with a pen. That's always appreciated. And thanks to my heart for holding up over four days of non-stop walking, very little sleep and not eating right.

A big thank you to the San Diego Comic-Con organizers, particularly David Glanzer, Jackie Estrada and John Rodgers. I still think SDCC is the best show of it's kind anywhere and all the work they put into it really shows.

Finally, a big thank you to the AFI crew, those that went and those that stayed home. Dan P, Abby, Jason, Peter, Ryan, Dan N, Jim, Erik and Jeff. I love this website. Thank you so much for everything that you do.

Thanks again, everybody! We'll see you next year! July 21-24, 2011!

Mike

Hey, buddy!

I'm sorry you won't be with us next year. I do hope you can make it back out here at some point. It was great to meet you.

We will start the Countdown to SDCC early next year. It will start on February 17th instead of in March. I have so many pictures from this year's event that I want to make sure they all get posted! :wink:

Thanks for stopping by, Brad. We will definitely be on the lookout for the Australian comic contingent!

Mike
