We’re a couple of episodes into the Burn Notice season, but this is still a good interview with Jeffrey Donovan and Bruce Campbell about the show and where this season is headed.
Not much about Fiona unfortunately, except to expect that her relationship with Mike will “go left, right and all around, and it’ll be exciting.” Donovan also says, “Some of the episodes I actually don’t read until I get on the day just so I can see what crazy thing she’s going to do to me that day.”
Sounds about right. I love Fiona and she’s continuing to show this season that she’s a strong character, not just in kickbuttability, but also in the way she’s growing emotionally. She’s still psychotic though, which is so cool.
Alan Moore on Sexism in Comics
This is an ancient series of articles and doesn’t shed any new light on the subject, but it’s written by Alan Moore which means that it’s thoughtful as well as entertaining as all get out.
New Black Canary writer
So, it’s true. Green Arrow/Black Canary does have a new writer as of issue #15. Andrew Kreisberg is one of the writers on Eli Stone, which bodes well since I really, really like that show. He also wrote that Helen Killer comic that Chris Sims likes so much, so there’s that too.
Still, I can’t help but be skeptical. I’ve really loved the globe-trotting adventures that Judd Winick’s been writing and I’ll be sorry to see Dinah and Ollie go home to Star City to focus on their marriage and the new bad guys Kreisberg’s creating. Still, there’s no reason that the series can’t continue to be awesome under those circumstances. Hopefully, it will be.
Now here’s a Black Canary doll the Christian Voice can get behind.
From Tonner. Very snazzy.
Black Canary on Batman: The Brave and the Bold
1. Black Canary will be appearing in an episode.
2. Oswald’s playing Batman.
Oh. Wonder Woman’s dressing up too.
Also from Tonner.
Animated Wonder Woman movie
Here’s some more info on the animated Wonder Woman movie. It’ll be released in February (on the 9th, according to BuzzFocus, who also reports it will have a “very dark storyline”) and in addition to the already announced cast, will also star Oliver Platt as Hades.
Here’s some footage of the trailer that someone nicked at San Diego.
I really hate the look of Hasbro’s Marvel Super Hero Squad. Especially the happy-as-pie Hulk and the disturbing and creepy Thing. It works pretty well on She-Hulk though, so I may have to pick up this two-pack. Anyone want a disturbing and creepy Thing toy?
(Incidentally, there’s also a Marvel Super Hero Squad version of Shang Chi, and I’ll definitely want that one. Shang Chi toys are too hard to come by to be picky.)
Over at Newsarama, I reviewed TJ Dort and Joe Haley’s excellent Underburbs comics. It’s about a swell, little girl named Angela who has to save the world from a not-so-swell vampire girl named Winifred. Really fun, cool stuff.
