The first official poster for the upcoming Jonah Hex movie was released by Warner Bros today.
SuperHero Hype! posted the Summary:
Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyone... and anything. Having survived death, Jonah's violent history is steeped in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the "other side." His only human connection is with Leila (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah's past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can't refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah's oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead. Based on the legendary graphic novel, "Jonah Hex" is an epic adventure thriller about one man's personal quest for redemption against the vast canvas of the battle between good and evil.

Cartoon Network has announced that they are develeping a new series based on the Young Justice comics created by Peter David and Todd Nauck.
In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over—to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and, ultimately, to yourself. But what if you’re not just a normal teenager? What if you’re a teenage super hero? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you’re worthy of the Justice League? That’s exactly what the members of Young Justice—Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis—will found out, whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero. This all-new series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based upon characters from DC Comics. Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) is the executive producer. Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman Doomsday, The Batman) and Greg Weisman (Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man, W.I.T.C.H.) are the producers.

The next installment of the DC Animated Universe franchise. This follows the story arc, Under the Hood, that introduced Jason Todd back into the DC Universe after being killed off a decade earlier. No longer Batman's sidekick Robin, Jason has assumed the role of the second Red Hood, an identity once held by the Joker.

With promotional images from the upcoming Vilrumite War appearing more frequently, this one-shot helps the reader catch up with all that is happening in the Invincible universe. Within the last year, Mark Grayson has undergone the Invincible War, Conquest, and even the "death" of his girlfriend. Needless to say, Mark has crossed a few lines since. With the people he loves in constant danger, Mark has now made an effort to stop them by any means necessary. Even if it means to kill. With his friends and family questioning Invincible's morality, Mark begins to question himself as well.
The issue focuses on Mark reestablishing his relationships with those in his life. Ultimately he makes the choice that he should have never crossed that line. With his old resolves reaffirmed, Mark sheds his black and blue costume and dons his original blue and yellow costume. Just in time for his father to show up with Allen the Alien to prepare him for war.
When I first read the synopsis for this issue, I just figured it would be a way for readers to catch up with the Invincible time line without learning anything new. Sort of like a clip show. Man, was I wrong. This issue was able to bring the readers up to speed in a subtle way, and at the same time give us a completely new, and amazing, story. I really didn't like where the writers were taking the Invincible character. It's good to see it was all a part of the story. When he first put on his new costume, I was a bit on the fence about it. After a while it grew on me. Though I'll miss it, it was really great to see him in his true colors. Old costume, old Mark. Invincible #71 comes out next month, but this issue is an essential read for fans.

So this is probably old news by now but I had to wait until it was officially announced. Marvel has confirmed today that Chris Evans has been cast as Steve Rogers in the The First Avenger: Captain America.
Earlier yesterday, it was also announced that Kings star Sebastian Stan is to play Bucky Barnes, Captain America's sidekick during the war.
