Speeding Bullets: Friday, January 13, 2012

from the Comic Hero News staff
There’s a lot that happens in the world of superheroes everyday, and we at Comic Hero News don’t have the ability to write up a full story about everything, as much as we’d like to. So, we bring you Speeding Bullets – for all of those pieces of news that are fired our way that are worth noticing, but don’t merit a full story in their own right.

  • A new photo from the set of Man of Steel (via Superman Homepage) shows a truck that has been utterly destroyed – no doubt due to Kryptonian actions.
  • Newsarama brings us all the details of the three-part “Omega Effect” arc which will run through Daredevil, The Punisher, and Avenging Spider-Man, written by Mark Waid and Greg Rucka.
  • Deadline brings us some great news. The CW is looking to bring Green Arrow to the airwaves! Yay! Let’s keep that Smallville train going? Bring back Justin Hartley!… Wait, you mean they’re not? And they’re getting the team of Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim (No Ordinary Family, Green Lantern) to do it? Without Justin Hartley? Without continuing the Smallville universe? Never mind. Look for this pilot to join the Wonder Woman one on bootleg racks at your favorite convention.
  • Jason Aaron spoke to Newsarama to discuss fan reception to his work so far on Wolverine and the X-Men.
  • In addition to being on the cover of this week’s issue, Entertainment Weekly has also shared three photos from The Dark Knight Rises. Enjoy!

    I can understand the CW wanting to do a fresh start on a new superhero series (Smallville has ten years of baggage to deal with no matter what spin off they would do). However, in that case, I would pick a whole new hero to do a series on, not one of the more popular ones that appeared regularly in Smallville. Personally, I loved the idea of a Deadman series that was floating around the internet some months ago. You have all the trappings of a superhero series combined with elements of Quantum Leap. I think the CW is hedging their bets by picking a hero who was popular on Smallville but not wanting to associate it with the series. Either way, it’s a mistake.
