Adaptations

It seems like the run-up to Friday's release of Spider-Man 3 (expect my review this weekend, by the way, assuming other things don't come up baby-wise) has seen our cup runneth over with all kinds of comic book movie-related news. First up, you can see the final trailer for June's Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer here, courtesy of Apple. I wasn't blown away by the first one, and the industry buzz around the sequel doesn't exactly have me jumping for joy, but, I gotta admit, they shore did make the Surfer look purty.

Moving on, last year Warner Bros. announced that it was inaugurating a new line of comic-based direct-to-DVD animated features. Well, that roll-out begins this fall with Superman: Doomsday, based on the celebrated "Death of Superman" storyline from the halcyon days of 1992. Cast includes Adam Baldwin (late of Firefly/Serenity) as Superman, James Marsters (late of Buffy/Angel) as Lex Luthor, and Anne Heche (late of Ellen Degeneres/women) as Lois Lane. Check out a behind-the-scenes featurette here, and the trailer here.

Lastly, but most definitely not leastly, here's our first full look at the very nice Mark III armor for Iron Man, by way of Entertainment Weekly.
