Overnight/Weekend Open Thread – Batfleck Re-Begins, 3D Fetus, Boba Fett Retcon?

It’s a long weekend for me because of the MLK holiday on Monday, so have fun taking this page extra long. Before I leave off, though, a few items I didn’t have room for today…


Batman Vs. Superman Featuring Wonder Woman and Others has been pushed back a year to 2016. Official word is that it’s to give the visuals time enough, but I’ve also heard Affleck might have injured his leg.

-A company called 3D Babies is offering life-size 3D models of your fetus, based on ultrasound photos. Not creepy in the least. (h/t FakeAssName)

-Yes, Marvel Select’s new Movie Spider-Man figure will come with the fireman hat.

-Rumor: Boba Fett to be retconned for stand-alone movie. Clone version will reportedly be killed by someone else who steals the armor just before the OT era. Does this mean we get to un-dub Temeura Morrison’s redubbed lines in the Empire Blu-ray?

-New teaser for Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, featuring Frankenstein, Dracula and Dorian Gray, looks like a classy reboot of LXG. No, not Alan Moore’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comic – LXG the movie version that made him madder than he’s ever been since the last thing that made him mad.

-New Maleficent footage shows it to be more of a shot-for-shot remake than I think anyone would have hoped.

-More concept art from the Gore Verbinski Bioshock movie that’ll never happen because nobody wants to spend Lone Ranger-level money on an R-rated film. (h/t SlyDante777)

Happy weekend, all. Maybe consider discussing these stories before doing the customary instant document dump?

Just a suggestion. Do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.
