John Powell To Score The Han Solo Movie

Composer John Powell, who has scored everything from Shrek to Jason Bourne, has officially signed on to score the Han Solo movie for Disney and Lucasfilm. Known largely for his work in animation, he has also scored the likes of Kung-Fu Panda and was even nominated for an Oscar in 2010 for his work on the DreamWorks Animation film How To Train Your Dragon.

Powell is now the third composer to score a Star Wars movie, standing alongside the likes of the legendary John Williams and Michael Giacchino, who scored last year's Rogue One.

Powell's work will next be heard in the animated feature film Ferdinand. 

Starring Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Warwick Davis and Thandie Newton, the untitled Han Solo film is directed by Ron Howard.

It is slated for release on May 25th, 2018.

HBO's Watchmen Won't Be A Straight Up Adaption

That Watchmen series being developed over at HBO isn't going to be a straight up adaption of the classic graphic novel according to network president Casey Bloys. 

This makes a lot of sense given that Alan Moore's original book was a closed story more suited for something like a television miniseries, or a theatrical film - which we got back in 2009.

"I don't want to talk too much about it, but Damon is thinking about it in a way exactly as you describe it," Bloys told IGN. "Which is, how do you take the material and derive from it a TV show, without making it a literal translation?"

Bloys was then asked if this would mean creating additional martial for the show that was previously unseen in the graphic novel. "I think so, yes," he responded.

"Damon is one of the smartest, most passionate, most thorough writers I've ever worked with," Bloys continued, "so he's really thinking about this in amazing ways. Again, I don't want to talk about the details of it, but when you sit with him and you see the way his mind works it's really kind of amazing."

What do you think, Infinite Earths fans? Are you down for a Watchmen television series featuring original content that was never seen in Alan Moore's classic comic?

Look for more news soon!

Take Flight With This Kotobukiya Supergirl Statue

The Kotobukiya Supergirl statue seen on display at San Diego Comic Con this past weekend is now up for pre-order! The statue is based off actress Melissa Benoist's portrayal of the Maiden Of Might on the hit DC Entertainment drama. It is crafted in 1/10 scale and stands just under 7" tall.

Check it out below...

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Kotobukiya is taking its popular lineup of comic book and movie characters based on DC Comics properties to a whole new world with statues from DC television shows on the CW. Coming to the 1/10th scale ARTFX+ Statue series after the Flash, Green Arrow, and the evil Reverse Flash is the Girl of Steel and protector of National City on her own show, SUPERGIRL! Kara Zor-El was sent to Earth from Krypton to care for her baby cousin Kal-El, but unforeseen gravimetric and temporal anomalies led to her ship arriving much later, and she grew up in the shadow of her famous family member. It was only as an adult that Kara decided to become a superhero and immediately the world fell in love with Supergirl. Now the mighty heroine stands tall in ARTFX+ Statue form featuring screen-accurate costume details and an incredible likeness of actor Melissa Benoist!

Supergirl stands tall, ready to take on any threat with her super powers along with her unquenchable spirit. The protector of National City radiates strength and grace with her legs spread apart, body straight, and face looking straight ahead into danger. She wears the costume made famous on the television show complete with thigh-high red boots, red skirt, and form-fitting blue top with a gold belt-like band across her middle. There’s an incredible texture sculpted into the costume across Supergirl’s torso, and it’s further accented by red piping on her arms and chest and of course the bold raised red and yellow “S” shield! Meanwhile, a knee-length red cape hangs behind her. Thanks to Kotobukiya’s craftsmanship and new 3D rendering technology the heroine’s face is sculpted and painted to look exactly like actress Melissa Benoist. While Supergirl stands tall, you can display her in no fewer than three different ways thanks to included interchangeable parts; pose her with arms down at her sides, fists pressed to her waist, or arms crossed across her chest as you like! Supergirl stands just under 7 inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) and stays secure on her included display base thanks to magnets in her feet. Kara is a hero for the ages and will look awesome in your home whether she stands alone or alongside other DC TV statues like Green Arrow and Flash!

The Kotobukiya Supergirl statue is priced at $69.99 and is available for pre-order now through the official Kotobukiya website - as well as other numerous online and specialty retailers.

Look for Kara to fly onto your shelves this coming February!
