Michael BayEvery year, the Fourth of July weekend means big crowds watching fireworks displays and lining up in theaters, and 2011 proved to be no exception. A lot of creators seemed to be stuck tweeting about their Monday workload instead of getting outside, unfortunately, but some guys, such as Freddie Williams II, weren't huge fireworks fans to begin with.

At the movies, Jamal Igle dug "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," and Gail Simone gave "Cars 2" a thumbs down. Another artist even called Michael Bay an inspiration. Find out who that was and how many times he went back to see the new TF sequel. It's all on the retweet list down below.

American GodsTweeters had a lot to keep track of last night, and the diversity of discussion this morning reflected that. Neil Gaiman fans have been buzzing about HBO developing an "American Gods" adaptation, while Jon Favreau was monitoring reactions to the new "Cowboys and Aliens" trailer, and everyone with an opinion on Ayn Rand and a Twitter account seems to have something to say about the "Atlas Shrugged" film.

And somehow two posts addressed quantities of Batman, as Jock mentioned how much he has to draw right now and R. Stevens asked whether or not we're all maxed out on the Caped Crusader. These retweets and more made the day's rundown after the jump.

KapowTweets out of Mark Millar's first ever Kapow Comic Con in London over the weekend proved to be mostly positive. For those of us grounded in North America, however, Jock kindly posted a pic from the show, showing a lineup of creators that were about as top notch as they come.

This morning's feed brought in a great haul of artwork, too, including a "fast digital sketch" of Cosmic Boy from Yildiray Cinar that puts many a published cover to shame and a Hermione Granger from Wes Molebash. Those retweets and reactions to "Breaking In" and "Super" make up the day's highlight reel after the jump, so dig in!

Game of ThronesAs you may recall, the Marvel crew was gearing up for an "Ultimate Spider-Man" cartoon retreat yesterday. They didn't share too much about what was discussed, but someone apparently commandeered Brian Michael Bendis' tweeting device and announced that he'd be leaving "Avengers." Bendis vowed to take all of his Twitter-equipped devices with him to the bathroom from here on out.

In other posting, HBO's "Game of Thrones" series had an unexpected impact on Damon Lindelof, according to a post from him. Check out what that was about, as well as how Ed Brubaker feels about "Hobo with a Shotgun" and what Tim Seeley had to say about "Priest." It's all retweeted down below.

BatmanThis week's snow may have stopped traffic along Lakeshore Drive in Chicago, but it can't stop tweets about who Joseph Gordon-Levitt might play in "The Dark Knight Rises." Brandon Jerwa shared some fine theories last night as the country was getting buried and frozen, and he was probably a bit more on target than Mark Millar was with his thoughts on Egypt.

Check out who's seeing the worst of the mega-storm, what Jon Favreau hopes you'll notice while you're watching the Super Bowl on Sunday and what Groundhog Day is like in the Windy City today. It's all been retweeted after the jump.

Spawn signingJust how far along are Geoff Johns' Booster Gold plans for "Smallville"? Well, if you only followed him on Twitter, you might know the answer to that question. While Skottie Young and Gail Simone were tweeting reviews of "The A-Team" last night, Johns was getting mentally prepared to bring his favorite time traveler to the CW.

Johns' update, as well as reactions to recent news about Peter Fonda and David Nelson, thoughts on Zack Snyder's Superman movie and some Image founder pics from last night's "Spawn" #200 signing await you below.

Cinar Black CatComic book sales didn't shine for the direct market this year, and Twitter turned into a bit of a roundtable discussion this morning as a result, with Geoff Johns, Jimmy Palmiotti, Jamal Igle and others weighing in with hopes, complaints and ideas.

Artwork posts were alive and well, however, with Yildiray Cinar sharing a step-by-step walkthrough of a Black Cat card he recently finished and Lea Hernandez posting a shot of a commission she finished. Those retweets and a provocative analysis of the relationship between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader await you below.

Green Lantern trailer reactionsWe on the MTV Splash Page crew weren't alone refreshing our browsers last night when the "Green Lantern" trailer appeared for the world to see. The launch created a tidal wave of reactions all over the place, but the creators in the Twitter Report feed were as vocal as anyone.

Thus far, the movie has the approval of Kevin Smith, Neil Kleid and Rob Liefeld. Geoff Johns hopes you caught a specific Easter egg that was thrown in, and Paul Azaceta and Brian Denham have some reservations. Check out who shares your opinions below, and if you don't have any yet, it's probably high time that you viewed the new clips from Martin Campbell's film for yourself.

Jon StewartCurrent events captured a lot of attention in the Twitter Report feed last night, with the tornado in New York and former President Bill Clinton on "The Daily Show" both sparking reactions. Nathan Fillion thought the tornado was just New York's way of welcoming him to the city, while Clinton and host John Stewart's newly-announced "Rally to Restore Sanity" turned his episode into a talking point.

Meanwhile in the U.K., Mark Millar missed a chance to see the Pope, but he didn't sound too broken up about it. His own words, another reaction to Joaquin Phoenix's "I'm Still Here" and an odd Chinese vodka discovery await you after the jump.

The fate of a live-action "Hack/Slash" movie might be a little uncertain right now (though the project reportedly snagged a new writer late last year), but Cassie Hack will make the jump to the animated world next year with an "illustrated film" based on Tim Seeley's comic book series.

Produced by Halo-8 Entertainment, the "Hack/Slash" illustrated film (it's not a "motion comic," I'm told) will be adapted and directed by award-winning filmmaker Matt Pizzolo, who previously produced Halo-8's popular "GodKiller" illustrated film. Halo-8 has provided Splash Page readers with the first peek at the "Hack/Slash" film, courtesy of a short teaser...

According to Halo-8, the "Hack/Slash" film will be based on the "My First Maniac" story arc published by Image Comics. Read More...
