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.
- DC Universe: The Source gives us our first look at the inaugural batch of annuals for the New 52. They kick it off with a look at the Teen Titans Annual, which starts a multi-part storyline set to cross between Teen Titans, Superboy, Legion Lost and the new Ravagers. Then we get to see the Animal Man Annual, which gives us a chance to see the crossover between Animal Man and Swamp Thing. Finally, Batman Annual continues the Owls story, and gives us a look at the New 52 Mr. Freeze.
- Sharp-eyed viewers may have caught a reference to the website MarkOfTheSpider-Man.com in the new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man. Right now, the site is mostly blank, showing staticy monitors. But no doubt this is where the action for the new viral marketing game will start.
- After numerous delays, The Wolverine is finally getting an official release date. According to Comic Book Resources, the James Mangold-directed film returns Hugh Jackman to the role of the Canadian mutant and will be released on July 26, 2013.
- Speaking of The Amazing Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield, at the London event to promote the film, said that he wants to see the next film Spider-Man be half-black, half-latino, clearly referring to Miles Morales, as was reported by Bleeding Cool.
- Another news round-up from DC Universe: The Source reveals some creative team shuffling on the New 52. First up, we learn that Marcus To will be drawing Batwing, beginning with issue 9. Next, we learned that we’re getting both a new creative team and a new arc on DC Universe: Presents starting with issue 9 as James Robinson and Bernard Chang give us a tale of Kass Sage – the daughter of Vandal Savage! Finally, we find out who will be assisting Rob Liefeld as he takes over three titles. Liefeld will be plotting Grifter with Frank Tieri writing and Scott Clark doing illustrations. Liefeld’s plots will be scripted by Mark Poulton on The Savage Hawkman, with Joe Bennett illustrating, and Liefeld will write and draw Deathstroke.
- Collider brings us several new screen shots from Dredd.
