Paul Bettany Confirms Avengers: Age of Ultron Appearance as the Vision 

Paul Bettany spoke to Jimmy Kimmel about finally appearing in person in the Marvel cinematic universe as the Vision in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Seeing as he’s been the deliciously British voice of Jarvis thus far, it’s not a stretch to imagine that there will probably be a Jarvis-Vision connection.  No word yet on whether he’s going to be normal human-colored or if he’s going to show up in all his green, red, and yellow Vision glory.

Grant Morrison bringing long-awaited series Multiversity to DC in August

Only five years after the initial announcement, Grant Morrison’s Elseworlds-style series Multiversity will be arriving in stores this August.  With artists including Frank Quitely, Cameron Stewart and Chris Sprouse, the comic will visit various worlds in the DC ScalpedcoverMultiverse as part of a yet-unknown over-arcing story.  It promises to be gloriously zany Morrison goodness (Justice League vampires!), and with those artists on board will no doubt be gorgeous.

 Vertigo’s Scalped to Become TV Series on WGN 

Yay, Scalped is going to be a tv series!  And it’s going to be on…WGN?  Hopefully this mostly unknown tv channel can do justice to Jason Aaron and R.M. Guera’s crime noir story set on an Native American reservation.  The comic series is highly acclaimed, and the more attention shined on it the better.  Plus, how great would it be to have a show featuring an all-Native American cast?

Catie is a lawyer by day, comics fan by night (and during the lunch hour). Unsurprisingly, her idol is She-Hulk and can only wish that she could work a purple suit in the courtroom like Shulkie can. She's also into Stephanie Brown, because she has apparently an affinity for characters in purple.
