The Joy of Sets: What Superhero Do You Heart The Most?

OK, first off, to all of you who chimed in last week. I just assumed we all accepted Dynasty’s Alexis Carrington as the #1 bitch of all time. That sort of stuff should just be understood from here on out. It’s like, who is the #1 villain? JR Ewing. No-brainer. But this week, I offer you a real challenge. With the sort-of-unexpected monster hit-dom of “Iron Man” in the theatres and this week’s DVD release of the TV movies The Incredible Hulk Returns/The Trial of the Incredible Hulk, I thought it would be fun to get all you fanboys and girls to weigh in on your favorite TV superheroes. I’m gonna throw some of my top picks out there (all available on DVD, natch), then I want ya’ll to give me yours, aiight? Smallville — Young Superman. The DVD sets that literally kept me from going insane during my doctor-ordered bedrest from two herniated discs. Seven seasons of Tom Welling, Michael Rosenbaum and a bunch of DC Comics cameos.

Buffy Creator Dumps Wonder Woman

It's a sad, sad day for fanboys everywhere. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Buffy and Angel creator Joss Whedon has bailed on Warner Bros. Pictures' Wonder Woman feature. "I had a take on the film that, well, nobody liked," he wrote on www.whedonesque.com. "[The suits and I] just saw different movies.... nonsympatico. It happens all the time." Bah! At this rate, when that pic finally gets made, Lauren Graham's gonna be too, er, mature to play the (other) part she was born to play. (Oh, and at least one Today's News reader owes Matt Mitovich an apology.) Next up for Whedon is the thriller Goners, which he's directing for Universal.In other comic-book/feature news, WB Pictures has signed Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy to take over its adaptation of The Flash, which is hardly as good as Wonder Woman, but hey, it's something.Monday's Today's News was written by Ben Katner. read more

Premise: Tales of comic-strip hero Barry Allen, a police scientist who accidentally gains super speed, and uses it to fight crime in Central City. The series wasn't exactly gone in a flash (it lasted a season), but its bright style and impressive special effects rated it a better run.
