Looks like it’s the day for hopeful tweeting about comics movies!
Earlier today Kurt Busiek tweeted:
Just had a conference on the ASTRO CITY movie story. It was astonishingly positive and supportive; some really cool ideas are in the works.
The Astro City movie deal was announced at Comic-ccon — Working Title is producing, and Busiek himself is doing the adaptation.
Rob Liefeld was also sanguine about the Deadpool movie today, despite all the talk about how Ryan Reynolds can’t be Green Lantern AND Deadpool. He wrote:
Woke up this a.m. to GREAT Deadpool movie news! Full steam ahead baby…
Liefeld is Deadpool’s baby-daddy from way back in the X-Force days and very involved in talking up the film.
