The first in a new series of shorts developed by Lauren Faust (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) featuring Wonder Girl, Supergirl and Batgirl premiered yesterday on Cartoon Network.
You might recognize the voices: Wonder Girl is played by Grey DeLisle (Azula in Avatar: The Last Airbender,) Batgirl is Tara Strong (IN EVERYTHING, including MLP:FIM, and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends) and Supergirl is played by Nicole Sullivan (Shego in Kim Possible.) Oddly, none of these ladies have been in The Clone Wars, though DeLisle did do voice Padme and Asajj Ventress in the Tartakovsky Clone Wars series, as well as some video game work, and Strong did a voice for The Old Republic.
LEGO announced at Toy Fair that they have extended their license with Lucasfilm for Star Wars-themed toys, video games, etc. for another ten years. So not only will there be twenty new Star Wars LEGO building sets released in 2012, we’ll be seeing lots of LEGO Star Wars merchandise until 2022 (or probably longer).
Today is one of those days that the collective internet loses its shit over a comic book movie trailer… On the other hand, I wasn’t a big fan of the whiny Raimi versions, so this already looks like an improvement? (The power of Emma Stone compels you!) And does Andrew Garfield look a lot like Hayden Christensen or am I hallucinating? (The Celebrity Genome Project lives!)
Reader Travis Hatfield alerted us to yet more Star Wars fabrics on the horizon, via online retailer Fat Quarter Shop. These Original Trilogy patterns are from Camelot Cottons and are, yes, 100% cotton and coming in April.
Since it’s big movie December and it seems people are only capable of talking about Avatar, let’s take a look at the many trailers which debuted this week! (Yes, I do actually have a movie news post to do. Shush.)
Making the most waves is Iron Man 2. It has snark and lightsaber whips, and I still haven’t seen the first one. (HBO is too busy with Marley and Me to show it.)
Tim Burton does his thing with Alice in Wonderland. Can someone tell him that you don’t need a ton of crazy makeup on Johnny Depp? The man is perfectly capable of acting. I believe he’s rather known for it.
And then there’s Robin Hood, which looks awfully familiar. Can Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe capture the Gladiator magic? We certainly know their cinematographer can! (I don’t know how they managed it, but bonus points for upgrading Marian from Sienna Miller to Cate Blanchett.)
Yeah, yeah, Titans will clash. We know. (Hi Liam! We love the line about the kraken, pity he looks like something out of Spawn.)
