THE ROCK "HULKS OUT" AS OBAMA ON SNL 03/30/15 @ 7:11 am EST
Adam West and Burt Ward are suiting up as Batman and Robin one more time (well, kinda), according to a report over on Consequence of Sound.
The former dynamic duo revealed during the Mad Monster Party horror convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, that they will be involved in a new animated Batman feature film created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic "Batman '66" TV show.
Ward told the audience that they can "look forward to a new animated Batman full-length 90-minute feature coming out on the 50th anniversary -- one of possibly two, but for sure one that Adam and I are going to be doing the voices for."
The news comes after a resurgence in interest in the classic series, which has included the release of "Batman '66" on Blu-ray, a new digital-first comic series from DC Comics, and the introduction of aline of action figures. No further details have been revealed. (Source: CBR)

KIDS TAKE 'SUPERHERO CHALLENGE' TO FIGHT CHILD ABUSE03/30/15 @ 7:00 am EST
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson hosted "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend, and both he and Sasheer Zamata's Obamas literally Huked out!
An excellent series of sketches involving Luther, President Obama's "anger translator," may be better at expressing what Obama seems to be suppressing, but in terms of a pure sight gag, The Rock Obama rules.
The return of this character provides a flipbook's worth of great reaction shots from Jay Pharoah's Barack before his Hulk-like transition. After he gets fed up with Ted Cruz, John Boehner, and Tom Cotton, thus satisfying the topical demands of a cold open, Pharoah morphs into Johnson, and people start flying through windows.
The twist of this iteration is that when Zamata's Michelle Obama gets mad, she undergoes a similar transformation into She Rock Obama, played by Leslie Jones ... in the exact way you would want it to be!

ECCC: KEVIN EASTMAN IS NOW EXCLUSIVE TO IDW03/30/15 @ 6:30 am EST
On Sunday at the Emerald City Comicon, "Darth Vader" writer Kieron Gillen, "Princess Leia" artist Terry Dodson, "Silk" artist Stacey Lee, "Spider-Gwen" artist Robbi Rodriguez, Marvel VP of International Business Development C.B. Cebulski and Marvel Executive Editor Mike Marts were all on hand for Marvel's final panel of the convention, "Marvel: Next Big Thing."
And we have Star Wars news!
In lieu of a presentation, the panelists opened things up to audience Q&A from the start. Chance for a "Star Wars"/"Guardians of the Galaxy" crossover? "The Marvel Universe and the Star Wars Universe have existed independently for so long and so successfully, the plan for now is to keep them separate," Marts replied. "Prince Leia" #5 cover by Terry Dodson.
Is it limiting at all to tell "Star Wars" stories between Episode IV and V? "No," Gillen said. "I always write with an end in mind. Even 'Uncanny X-Men.' I know these larger structures -- what's the most interesting thing to happen between A and B? It's less of a limitation and more of an opportunity."
Dodson agreed. "We know it's a fairly narrow scope, we're not trying to fill the whole gap in," he said of "Princess Leia," adding that the title character has a lot of potential to explore further.
"You never know exactly how much time has passed," Cebulski said of the gap between "A New Hope" and "Empire Strikes Back," as opposed to the period between "Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi."
Cebulski told the panel that as a kid, "Star Wars" first arc series artist John Cassaday drew a comic with what he guessed might happen after "Star Wars," pre-"Empire Strikes Back."
A fan asked why the "Star Wars" comics are under the Marvel banner, not a separate imprint. Cebulski pointed out that the first "Star Wars" comics were published by Marvel, so it was a "natural fit" to do it again. "It really was just a marketing decision that worked well for both [Marvel and Lucasfilm]."
Cebulski said that next month's Star Wars Celebration event will include announcements of new Marvel Star Wars comics. (Source: CBR)

Bleeding Cool ECCC: ANTHONY MACKIE: UNLEASH THE FALCON03/30/15 @ 6:11 am EST
was the first to tell us about a Gamora
ongoing comic by screenplay writer Nicole Perlman
last year. But since the official announcement at New York Comic Con, nothing. Rocket Raccoon, Star Lord
, even Groot
now have their own series, and there are three Guardians monthlies. But of Gamora’s own book? Not a peep.
Well, at the Marvel panel Sunday at ECCC in Seattle, editor Mike Marts
confirmed that the series is happening, but will be published after Secret Wars
, so as not to get lost in the event.
Basically, it’s late. But is coming.Kieron Gillen
also stated that he has a Secret Wars
series yet to be announced that might be a little villain-centric. (Source: Bleeding Cool)

ECCC: THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY COSPLAY03/30/15 @ 5:56 am EST
In one of very last panels of Emerald City Comicon 2015, Anthony Mackie -- Falcon/Sam Wilson in the Marvel Studios' film franchise -- took the Washington State Convention Center's main stage to answer questions from fans.
Panel moderator Clare Kramer started the session by asking Mackie about the origins of his role as Falcon.
Mackie said after his breakout role in 2009's "The Hurt Locker," he wrote Marvel Studios asking to get involved with the franchise. "I was initially writing them because I wanted to be Black Panther," Mackie said.Eventually, Marvel Studios did contact him, though it wasn't clear it was for the role of Falcon at first.
Mackie then shared his enthusiasm for the forthcoming "Avengers: Age of Ultron." "Remember the first time you saw a 3D movie, and got a headache, and were like, 'What happened to my brain?' 'Age of Ultron' is like that, with The Rock punching you in the face. It's like Disneyland for adults. It's like going to Vegas with an unlimited credit card. It's by far the most stupendous film experience you'll have. It's just ridiculous."
Moving quickly to fan questions, an audience member asked what Mackie would advise Steve Rogers to catch up on from the decades he was frozen: rock out to the Sugarhill Gang ("just once"), buy every Earth, Wind & Fire and CD, eat an In-N-Out burger and go skydiving.
A fan asked Mackie for his thoughts on the impact his role as Falcon has on a young audience. "It's a huge responsibility," Mackie said. "I do events like this because so many people become superheroes and celebrities, and they detach themselves from reality. That scares me. When I meet people, when I meet kids, that informs characters I play down the line. I tell kids, when you think something can't happen, you think you can't read that well, when certain people didn't expect anything of you -- I was that kid. I was the kid they wanted to put on Ritalin and kick out of school because they thought I was a bad kid." (Source: CBR)
