Christopher Nolan made a conscious decision to include previously unfilmed villains the Scarecrow and Ra's Al Ghul in the story of the caped crusader's origins.[Via Sci Fi Wire]
I can't wait to see what Christopher Nolan does with Batman, he is such a cool director.
I told my son (who is three years old) that a new Batman film is being made. Now everytime I remind him about the new Star Wars film coming next year (got to start them early) he says "and Batman too".

Oh yes. Oh yes. Oh YES! Star Wars episode iii is officially Revenge of the Sith.
That is so cool. It is cool for many reasons. Firstly it is just cool. Secondly as many of you I'm sure know, Return of the Jedi was initially called Revenge of the Jedi, before revenge was thought to be un-jedi like. Thirdly, it is just cool.
I'm gibbering with excitement.

The Disembodied Brain has a photo gallery from Comic-Con 2004.
Lots of pictures of people dressed up as weird stuff.

- A robot must risk his neck for his brother man, and may not cop out when thereâ€™s danger all about.
- A robot must be a sex machine to all the chicks, except where such actions conflict with the will of his main woman.
- A robot must at all times strive to be one bad motha-shutchyomouth.

A couple of the things I'd love to see : Star Wars Spectacular with Lucasfilmâ€™s Steve Sansweet and guests (of course), Joss Whedon talking about Serenity (and showing previews?) and Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean talking about the MirrorMask movie.

Albedo One which has a terrible front page, but a few stories online and a some interviews including a great one with Kim Stanley Robinson
Abyss and Apex, which looks very nice and has some good stories online, including some very groovy super short flash fiction.

It's been one of those days where I read about cool SF TV series that I' won't get to see for years (unless I buy the DVD's). On the plus side I stayed in a motel just over the road from where they film Stargate (but didn't see any men with sticks that shot llaser beams out the end.)
"A comet is hurtling towards Earth, and it looks to be the end of civilization, when it suddenly slows and finally stops. It explodes, and 4,400 people come out, people who've been missing throughout the decades. They have no recollection of where they were, why they were missing and what date it is now."

I wonder if there is any chance of it being shown in the UK? The trouble is that unless series are mega hits then UK terrestrial TV won't buy them. Which is rubbish.
