Warner Bros animation will be releasing a new Thundercats series this year on the Cartoon Network. It looks like they may actually get this one right. The trailer seems reminiscent of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Check out the trailer after the break. Hat Tip: CJ
via aintitcoolnews. Looks like everything is coming full circle… I don’t know if it’s just because I’m older… but the cartoons these days pale in comparison to the ones we grew up with (Transformers, G.I. Joe, Voltron, Thundercats, etc). There are some exceptions: Avatar: The Last Airbender, Iron Man: The Animated Series, etc. I’m glad they are reviving the older shows. Anyways, Warner Bros Animation will be launching a new Thundercats TV series on the Cartoon Network in 2011. Check out the full press release after the break.

Warner Bros announced that the third Batman movie from director Christopher Nolan (“Memento”, “Batman Begins”, “Dark Knight”) will be released in movie theaters and in IMAX on July 20, 2012. Way too long from now. Ah well…
Iron Man 2 will be released in theaters this week on May 7th… In anticipation, I am including a 1 minute film clip from the new movie. Spoiler Alert: If you don’t want to see a longer clip of the briefcase scene from the trailer, don’t push play.
According to AintItCoolNews, Archie Comics is announcing its first openly gay character, Kevin. Wasn’t the Archie comic book series supposed to end? Wasn’t there a series where Archie was supposed to marry either Betty or Veronica? Haha. Interestingly enough, the Archie comic book series is one of the most popular comic book publications in India. I wonder how they’ll react to this. See the press release below:
New trailer for the “Last Airbender” movie… aka Avatar: The Last Airbender. This has no relation to the James Cameron movie – it is based on the Nick TV show and is directed by M. Knight Shyamalan. This movie is looking pretty cool so far.
Marvel and Madhouse have teamed up to release a 4 part series of anime movies featuring various Marvel superheroes. The first two teasers are for Iron Man and Wolverine…
Madhouse is the Japanese animation studio that brought us Anime such as: The Animatrix, Batman: Gotham Knight, Death Note, Metropolis, Millenium Actress, Ninja Scroll, Perfrect Blue, Record of Lodoss War, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, X, etc. The films are supposed to feature “popular Super Heroes redesigned and repurposed as emerging from the fabric of Japanese culture.” This Anime should be released sometime this month. I can’t wait. Check out the teaser trailers after the jump.
So, as an avid comic book reader for years… I almost feel compelled to pick up Apple’s new iPad. In addition to it’s other functions, I’m very interested in the Marvel Reader that was developed for it. I love the idea of using an e-reader to keep up with my favorite titles. Now, if only DC came out with an app…
At any rate, I might wait until my buddy Jeff gets his before I get one. Some people have recommended buying the second generation hardware, so we’ll see. I own a Macbook Pro as well as an iPhone, so… it might be time.
