Wonder WomanIf fan reaction to seeing actress Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman for the first time was a bit mixed, you might say it was completely because of the hero’s revamped costume. After all, that’s all there was to judge.

Whether you think Diana’s new duds were off-color or just a little too PVC, filming on the David E. Kelly-drafted NBC pilot is still full-steam ahead. And as production goes, so do local spies. One Daily BLAM! reader caught a glimpse (along with some shots and video) of the new Wonder Woman and her revised costume in action.

On the Hollywood Boulevard set of the developing show we can see some definite edits made to the rehashed costume. Read More...

Patrick StewartAs natural on the Shakespearian Stage as he is in space, Patrick Stewart is one of the sci-fi genre’s most well rounded actors, but the working hours he’s spent in a wheelchair have been limited to his time as Professor X in the past four “X-Men” films.

That's why it might be the very height of dramatic challenge for Stewart to pull off a particularly slick, inhumanly difficult wheelchair maneuver as the famous mutant telepath. Or, maybe not. At the very least, Stewart recently revealed that he was looking forward to seeing one of his favorite two-wheeled maneuvers on the big screen before discovering it was cut.

In an interview with Hero Complex, Stewart recalled a momentary mastery of balance and hand-eye coordination, calling it the “best scene” of his career, and mourned its loss in the editing room. Read More...

X-Men: First ClassX-Men fans may already know that if things had gone differently, they would have seen a Matthew Vaughn directed version of the franchise’s unofficial finale, “X-Men: The Last Stand.” As it was, the director bowed out of the project, Brett Ratner was put in his place, and Vaughn moved on to captain film adaptations of Neil Gaiman’s “Stardust” and Mark Millar’s “Kick-Ass”.

In an interview with EW blog Inside Movies, Vaughn explains what kept him from taking on the X-Men then, what he’s put them through now that he’s at the helm of "X-Men: First Class", and why the “Twilight” girls will like it.

Read on for some of the highlights…

It was many months ago that we got our first, albeit low-quality glimpse of Peter Sarsgaard as Green Lantern’s top-heavy telepathic villain, Hector Hammond.

Newly released is an official photo, seen here courtesy of HeyUGuys, featuring Hector pre-psychic transformation and looking rather melancholy.

During Comic Con 2010, Sarsgaard told MTV News that his cranium-enlarging mutation will progress gradually throughout the film. Read More...

Morena BaccarinSure, it’s been cited that Morena Baccarin (of “Firefly” and “Serenity”) was seen at a comic shop near the set of her current vehicle—ABC sci-fi tentpole “V” — collecting "Avengers" back issues, but if any casting rumor could be fueled by sheer physical and circumstantial appropriateness, it’s the one speculating that Baccarin might be cast as Janet van Dyne, a.k.a. The Wasp, the superhero team's most miniscule member.

After all, not only does “Avengers” movie mastermind Joss Whedon have a history of loyalty to the actors cast in his body of work, but Baccarin’s resemblance, topped with the icing that is her current pixie haircut, make the actress the very living likeness of Janet van Dyne.

Speaking to AccessHollywood during NYCC, Baccarin addressed the rumor that she and Whedon might reprise their team-up. Read More...

U.K. iPadThe last 24 hours in the Twitter Report feed have been a great time for discovery. The arrival of the iPad in the U.K. led the way, with Dave Gibbons trying to figure out what to carry his new device around in. Andy Diggle and Frazer Irving have been tweeting their struggles as well.

Adobe Photoshop CS5 and New York City's new subway maps also attracted some attention from creators. You can check out what Mike Oeming has been learning and what Fred Van Lente hopes will be be next for NYC's MTA and what Warren Ellis believes will be the true sign that he has made it in the world after the jump.

It seems appropriate I wrap up a trilogy of Felica Day interviews the same day the third and final issue of her comic book, “The Guild,” hits stores. From Dark Horse Comics, the mini-series is based on her hugely popular web series and shows us something we never saw on the show – how the guild met.

Now that all three issues have been released, we discuss her experience writing comics for the first time, her past and future in the genre and what she thinks about her friend Joss Whedon directing “The Avengers,” including her possible role in the film.

Day says so far, the response to “The Guild” comic has been huge. “Actually it has been selling out many, many, many places,” she said. “I’ve gotten so many messages about people, ‘This is the first comic book I’ve ever bought.’ So that’s actually one of the most gratifying things.”

“Then when somebody who’s a real pro comic person, a friend of mine, emails and says, ‘Hey, you did really good on the comic,’ I kind of get relieved,” she said, “because I feel like comic people are the most critical of any of the geek culture. So if I can pass their test – because I don’t think they cut me any slack – it makes me really happy. Read More...

Iron Man 2- twitterIt feels like a Watcher's lifetime since the first pictures off the set of "Iron Man 2" emerged, but as Jon Favreau's tweets suggest, that May release date is fast approaching. Ever the diligent updater, he says he's just got a few sound mixes and visual effects left to finalize.

In other directorial news, Kevin Smith had been answering questions as usual over on his account, and he responded honestly when someone asked him how he felt about directing someone else's script for "Cop Out." Check out what he had to say below along with some micro-reviews of "The Big Bang Theory" from last night and "CSI" in general. And before I forget, big-time congratulations to Tony Moore, who tweeted the birth of his new daughter!

It's all in the Twitter Report for March 2, 2010. Read More...

The Green HornetA few movie-related cheers and jeers got tossed around the Twitter Report's feed over the last 24 hours. Joe Hill seems to have been catching up on his "Green Hornet" news, and both Michel Gondry and Anvil have his approval. Bryan Lee O'Malley, meanwhile, sounded a little skeptical of Ellen Page's role in the new Christopher Nolan film "Inception."

In sports/comics crossover conversation, Brian Michael Bendis noticed the trending Vikings topic last night that was spurred by the Chicago Bears victory over Minnesota. He hoped that "Viking" writer Ivan Brandon would notice as well. Check out all of those retweets after the jump along with a birthday wish I endorse going out to Jeff Katz and a memorial shout out to Star Trek actress Majel Barrett, which I also support.

I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is your comics Twitterverse roundup for December 29, 2009. Read More...
