Table Talk for the Labour Day Long Weekend

Want something to talk about while you and your buddies gather around the pub/Magic the Gathering/Warhammer/Five Finger Fillet/poker table? Well, here are some news bits from the last little while that will fuel your conversation.

The Avengers

New art has surfaced showing the whole team in typical Avengers poses. Apparently, there was some art featuring Skrulls, but it has vanished from the face of the Interwebs, never to be seen again.

And a couple new set photos have also surfaced, giving a hint as to who Marvel’s answer to the Harlem Globetrotters will be fighting in the movie. It’s most likely Skrulls, but who knows? It could be Predator. Or these guys.

Dark Knight Rises

Anne Hathaway gave a stuntman a concussion and ripped the ass out of her Catwoman suit. Just like your drunk Aunt Dorothy at your last family reunion.

Man of Steel

New set pics show Superman’s outfit as less garish and a whole lot more bulgy.

World War Z

Brad Pitt wasn’t comfortable being wealthy, handsome and married to a hot wife and father to a bunch of what will inevitably be really cool kids, so he went off and saved some chick from being trampled to death. The scene itself sounds sweet, though – it required 700 extras, playing both humans and zombies, in Glascow, which was standing in for Pittsburgh.

DC

DC started its entire lineup all over again. So prepare for a whole new angle on Martha Wayne’s pearls breaking.

Marvel

Ultimate Hawkeye #1 came out this week, featuring Jeremy Renner Clint Barton doing his “more fashionable Green Arrow” schtick.

Underworld: Awakening

It has a poster! And a trailer, which shows that when Kate Beckinsale and Len Wiseman get together, sexy things happen. All the time.

Daily Comic Strips that aren’t Cyanide and Happiness

Daily syndicated comic artists all over the ever-shrinking market are planning a 9/11 tribute. So look forward to reading the one where Garfield, after seeing his identical towers of lasagna spilled all over his bed, loses his shit, goes into the sandbox, stays in it for way too long, and finally finds the responsible party, Odie, now a frightened, defeated old dog and kills him.

Tom Morello doin’ stuff

The guy behind most of what is wonderful about Rage Against the Machine/Street Sweeper Social Club/Audioslave/Nightwatchman/that sweet solo on Anti-Flag’s “Depleted Uranium is a War Crime” is releasing a comic called “Wild Orchid.” He describes it as kind of like Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. So he sets modest goals, which is nice. Humility is so rare these days.

And finally…

Don Cheadle does the best version of Captain Planet you have ever seen. Enjoy hearing “Captain Planet motherfucker” like you’ve never heard it said before! And don’t forget to wear all the white you can this weekend.
