Entry Level Geek: ComicBookMovie.com

I know we just had an Entry Level Geek a week ago, but I was catching up on ComicBookMovie.com, and there’s been all sorts of superhero news coming up lately, so another edition was necessary. Here’s the best of what they’ve recently posted.

We talked last week about a tweet by Deadpool creator Rob Liefield:

Warner Bros. just trying to protect their investment. They don’t want Ryan Reynolds playing Deadpool AND Green Lantern. Interesting 2 watch

Well it sounds like whatever hurdles they were encountering have been cleared. He recently posed this to his twitter account:

Woke up this a.m. to GREAT Deadpool movie news! Full steam ahead baby…

More updates after the break. Continue reading Entry Level Geek: ComicBookMovie.com

Entry Level Geek: Fake Blood and Quantum Leaps

It’s been a few weeks since our last installation of Entry Level Geek, so it’s time to catch up!

MovieMiscellany has posted the recipe used for the fake blood in The Evil Dead. So if you happened to not have anything going on today, now you’ve got something to do!

My wife (of ‘Thoughts From The Better Half’ fame from my movie reviews) just recently finished watching the entire Quantum Leap series. Now Scott Bakula is talking about an upcoming Quantum Leap movie. It doesn’t sound like he’ll reprise his role, but he’ll be involved somehow.

The good news is that Don [Quantum Leap creator Donald P. Bellisario] is working on the film script and has a big time Hollywood producer who wants to do it … It’s about time. But what I always thought would happen, happened … [that he’s now too old for the role]. But Dean [Stockwell, who played Al] and I will have a part in it somehow.

Don did say that as he was writing, he told me he was having trouble, ‘getting you and Dean out of my head.’ But I know he will do it.

Click through the jump for the rest of the recent stories.

HP Confirms webOS Tablet?

Engadget is reporting that HP has confirmed, at least to its employees, that it will in fact ship a webOS tablet in Q1 2011. Color me excited.

I know this rumor has been floating around since the day HP bought Palm, but this one doesn’t just say they’ll be shipping a “webOS version of Slate”, which in my mind lends a modicum of credibility to it. Starting from square one with the hardware to run webOS makes a lot more since than trying to force a new OS on to existing hardware, especially hardware that has yet to see the light of day.

Really I just want to see a new device running webOS, one hopefully better designed than the Pre. Come on HP, I need some proof that webOS is alive and kicking and not just destined to be used on your fancy new printers.

Entry Level Geek: Rumors, Leads, and First Looks

The next few years will bring us the possibility of some of the greatest Superhero movies of all time, or it will all be an enormous letdown. Whether they turn out to be successes or flops, we’ll have to wait and see, but with all of them coming out within 2 years of each other, this leads to many rumors and possibilities floating around. So this is an exciting time for fans of these franchises. Comic-Con just wrapped up, so LOTS of details are being released about all these movies, so we have plenty to cover, let’s not waste anymore time.

We’ve got our first look at Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern! Cinematical says:

One of the more interesting things about Reynolds and this Green Lantern costume is that the entire get-up is being created with computers and placed on Reynolds after the fact. If you’ve seen images of Reynolds on set, the guy is covered in all sorts of dots and whatnot (see an image here) so that they can work their movie magic in post-production and provide the guy with his magic superhero suit. Will this help or hurt the production in the end? That we don’t know … yet.

I just don’t really get into the Green Lantern as a character, seems like one of the dumber superheros to me. The guy just puts on a ring and can become things… I guess it’s not the lamest idea for a super dude, but it doesn’t trip my trigger. I love Ryan Reynolds though, so I’m looking forward to the movie anyway. Some great tidbits about the movie after the jump with possible spoilers, plus info on Superman, Batman, Captain America… and more.

iPad Preorders to go Live March 2nd?

Word on the street is that Apple might open up preorders for the iPad as soon as March 2nd.

Which would be pretty great, but there’s been no sign of the iPad being approved by the FCC yet.

If this rumor is true, only the WiFi version would be up for preorder, since the 3G equipped version is slated to release 30 days after the WiFi only model.
