Universal has released the first actual stills from SCOTT PILGRIM, although one has been floating around for a bit. The general reaction around the web has been shock and awe. Splash Page has the kind of in-depth analysis usually reserved for 3rd down conversions in the Super Bowl.


§ In less thrilling news, looks like SPIDEY 4 is really in a boondoggle of a delay, as crew members have been advised to look for other work. As we reported yesterday, the film has been delayed over script concerns voiced by director Sam Raimi.

Rich Johnston has the history of the COWBOYS & ALIENS comic book.

§ KICK-ASS will be the opening night film for the SXSW film festival. Yep, looks like comic book movies are red hot in ’10.
