Or if not, he damn well feels like it now. The current season of Doctor Who still has a few episodes to go here in the United States but the season finale aired this past weekend in the United Kingdom. What else did Matt Smith do this weekend? Oh yeah, he got on stage with electronic dance duo Orbital to close their set at the 40th annual Glastonbury Festival by playing the Doctor Who theme song for a crowd of thousands. And trust me when I say, he makes this look good.

QUESTION: There’s been a lot of internet banter regarding the discontinuation of the DCU series based on quotes attributed to an interview in Calgary with you. True or false?
BRUCE TIMM: Kinda false. First of all, it wasn't an actual one-on-one interview -- quotes were taken out of context from longer answers I gave on a panel at the Expo. Bottom line: the DCU films are definitely continuing. We've got projects lined up for the next two years at the very least – lots of films in different stages of development and production. I know there are a lot of rumors circulating about future films. Some are true, some are not. I'll tell you this much – anyone at our DCU/Batman: Under the Red Hood panel at Comic-Con will walk away with a very clear picture of the direction we're taking the DCU animated movies in the coming year.

The idea for the webby design was actually based on a dance performance concept but we'll pretend we didn't hear that. If you feel like channeling your inner Peter Parker, the group is creating another tape installation in Frankfurt, Germany this September. And I wasn't kidding about it being able to support your weight, you're actually able to climb inside it. Just leave the binoculars at home.

Charles Holbert, aka KidNotorious on deviantART, has been collaborating on a comic called The Unique Tales but it's his superhero/villain work that lured me in. I mean, how awesome is this Batman Rogues piece? He's got a great sampling of all kinds of characters on his page so go check them out. Especially Weapon X.

Under the Red Hood features the voice talents of Bruce Greenwood, Neil Patrick Harris and Jensen Ackels and Winick couldn't be happier with how they took on the roles but it was John DiMaggio's Joker who he thought had the toughest job. "There’s only been a handful of people who have created Joker – Mark Hamill set the standard for animation, then you’ve got Jack (Nicholson) and Heath Ledger. But John (DiMaggio) has such versatility, he could go anywhere with it, and he made it totally his own," he said, "He’s wonderfully scary and really gets the job done."
This was the comic scribe's first foray into film writing but seems to have caught the bug. "One of the fun parts of writing for film is that it allows you the freedom for your characters to just shut up and fight. We can’t do that in comics – there always has to be some banter or internal monologue," said Winick.

Show’s like Sons of Anarchy, White Collar and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia are all going to be making some sort of an appearance at CCI. Even Fox’s musical comedy-drama Glee is going to be there. I know fans of that show call themselves Gleeks but come on, this is getting ridiculous.

If you can afford to spend a little cash and want to be the coolest kid on the block you'll purchase the Thierry Lasry Plastic Man Swarovski crystal sunglasses for $490. "I was always a fan of comics," said Lasry, "Plastic man with his sunglasses is my favorite."
No one, and I mean no one is going to look at you twice wearing this Joker bow-tie by Alexis Mabille. It's scary as hell but only $170. Actually no, that's scary too.
On the cheap/simple side are Batman and Superman caps by New Era for $45 and designers My Face have created several comic book cover t-shirts and tank tops for $60 a pop. It appears they come in color or black and white versions. Both pretty cool, both waaaay too much to pay for a t-shirt. I guess this is why I shop at Target.

Calling it "a sweeping tale combining swords and science and boasting ferocious battles with the highest of stakes," the studio offered some hints about what the new "Thundercats" series will involve, including "the grand origin story of Prince Lion-O’s ascension to the throne – and of those who would thwart his destiny at any cost."
