Amy Adams is Lois Lane/ Booster Gold and Blue Beetle First Screen Shot / Geoff Johns on Aquaman/ Wonder Woman in action.

http://dcu.blog.dccomics.com/2011/03/28/superman-man-of-steel-finds-its-lois-lane-adam-hughes-covers-action-comics-900-and-more-superman-news/

I am sure at this point most of you have seen this but I am super excited for Amy Adams as Lois Lane. If you haven’t seen the film “the Fighter”, I urge you to check it out to see what a terrific actress she is. She has a strength in that role that is incredibly convincing but also a likability that fits the role of Lois Lane. This is another casting announcement that has me convinced the Superman film is in great hands. If the script matches the casting, we could be in for something special.

http://www.tvguide.com/News/Smallville-Booster-First-Look-1031161.aspx

The link above has a screen shot of Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. I think these look like these are some of the best “Smallvillized” DC characters yet. I am not suprised by how good Blue Beetle looks. We saw that test footage months ago and this is a DC character that was made for the screen. Booster Gold’s costume is really awesome. I wasn’t sure what route they would go but he looks like a character from the future. It’s a very clean look. Geoff Johns has been batting high on his Smallville scripts so I am really looking forward to this.

http://dcu.blog.dccomics.com/2011/03/29/where-we-go-in-the-book-will-surprise-some-people%e2%80%94geoff-johns-on-aquaman/

Yes! Yes! Yes! I adore Aquaman! I think his return to DC has been really well done and I am glad that Geoff Johns will be kicking this off. There is a great deal of interesting things that can be done with Aquaman. I would love to see where he plans to take the character and his supporting cast. Aquaman works the best when you really have a chance to show how his unique nature brings something different to the DCU. I have high hopes this will be up there with some of the classic Aquaman uns.

Wonder Woman’s costume has been adjusted for the TV pilot. I have to say I like the darker tones a little better. I definitely want to see this in motion but it’s definitely a step in the right direction. It has a feel of the “classic” look while bringing some cool elements of the new version currently in comics. I think the story presented will ultimately be the selling point to me on whether or not this works. I am glad they made a few changes to the costume though.

Cool Flashpoint Questions Feature!

http://dcu.blog.dccomics.com/2011/02/18/flashpoint-friday-a-call-for-questions/

I love panels at conventions. Whether they discuss past work or upcoming material it is always great to get creator and company viewpoints on where the DCU is headed. The source listed a “call for questions” about Flashpoint and I figured I would post the link here. I am not always good at coming up with that creative question that may lead to hints but I adore reading answers to those posed by others. If you have that cool question about Flashpoint, now is the time to participate!

FlashPoint news continues!

http://dcu.blog.dccomics.com/2011/02/18/flashpoint-friday-three-answers-from-geoff-johns/

Another cool Flashpoint teaser has his the Source blog! I really like that new readers can jump on this event without any prior knowledge but those of us who read classics like Shade the Changing Man are going to feel a cool connection. I am a fan of events including everyone.

One of my good friends was new to the Green Lantern Universe during Blackest Night. We had many fun discussions about Green Lantern history and the overall DCU. This wasn’t because he needed it to enjoy the story. It was because the story sparked that interest. If you have friends who are interested in alternate universe or time twisting stories, Flashpoint might be that cool jump on mini series. Fringe and Dr. Who fans for example are a ready made audience to try out some of this. If you are excited for Flashpoint, let a friend borrow the first issue and have some fun discussing the event.

FlashPoint Links!

I am getting more and more excited for FlashPoint. I thought, for convenience, I would post some links to the Source Blog that had some interesting news from Action Figures to hints at what is to come.
