Apparently a TV show will be happening, as well as Wheddon having control over the direction of the cinematic Marvel universe.

Clark Kent to resign from Daily Planet Shocker

Well I suppose if you can't get a promotion in 70 years it's time to move on. :D

People said the same about Disney buying Marvel and then they went and made Avengers and shut everyone up. The only bad thing about this news is that they only reduced Lucas's role to consultant instead of barring him from contacting any of the individuals working on the film. Lucas made an effort to make take every wrong step when he was at the helm and now that Disney has control, there really isn't any new ground for them to drag its naked, bloody body across.

Aye. Disney bought Marvel for about the same money, as well. It's interesting...based off sheer numbers, it makes me wonder how Pixar cost 7.5, well exceeding both companies.

Take it for what its worth... The Locus 20th and 21st All-Centuries Polls Results

http://www.locusmag.com/2012/AllCenturyPollsResults.html

Don't agree with the ranks of many of them of course, but that's expected. For example Ursula K Le Guin's works have always bored me to tears, but alot of people seem to like them so what do I know. Also Jordan coming in so low on the list.

Ah, for f**k sake. JJ Abrams has been chosen to direct the new SW film.

Pretty sure he denied wanting to do it before, as he has Star Trek, etc. going on. Pity...hopefully a delay to the project, or some such, will prevent him from fulfilling his commitment.

Rumour has it that Ford, Fisher, & Hamill will reprice their roles as Han , Leia and Luke in the new star wars film.

Apparent its going to be called The Knights of the OAP Republic.

If you want,  I thought the trailer was a bit on the short side.

It was a teaser, not a trailer.

And I liked it. The lightsabre is gimmicky and the soccer ball-droid looks stupid, but we'll see. I view JJ Abrams as a hurdle, if we manage to get through this without being scathed, I'll be glad.

Hi all,

Me again. This time I have decided to lock this thread. Not because I think rules have been broken, but because I want us all to stop posting in bin threads. If you have a small issue, post it from now on in its own thread, so that it may grow and prosper instead of that it harvests an odd reply and is buried six pages deep.

You all post really interesting and wonderful stuff. Don't be afraid that it's not worthy. The worth of a thread is not measured by the number of total replies. :) So don't hesitate to post your small issues in their own threads from now on, they're worth it!

D.
