If you missed in, earlier this month the first photo was released of Adrianne Palicki the new Wonder Woman, and not surprisingly the images didn’t come across too well. Most fans thought it looked like a Halloween costume (honestly it wasn’t that impressive).
Well, Apparently the creators heard what fans had to say and have made some adjustments, as new set photos from the show have Palicki in a revised/new costume.
Daily Mail has the scoop and you can see all the pictures here (they are of Palicki and her stunt double, shes the one making silly faces). You can instantly see some of the revisions, gone are the bright blue fake leather pants and equally silly boots she used to have on, those have been replaced by blue tights with stars running down the legs and the boots are now red and look like something a little easier to run in.

Well StarCraft season 2 is here and after my placement games (you get one placement match, doesn’t seem to mean much) I’m still stuck on Gold in 1v1 all the way to 4v4. I shouldn’t say stuck, I still in the top 8 in two of my gold leagues so at least I get that fancy new badge with a star. Still it’s sort of odd telling people your in the top 8 when I have three leagues above me (Platinum, Diamond, and Master).
Oh and if you missed the announcement, here it is:
The second StarCraft II League season has begun! Bonus pools and standings have been reset. If you’ve already been placed in a league, you’ll only need to play one placement match to kick off the new season.
Season 1 milestone rewards have also been granted to players. You can see your results in-game in the Leagues and Ladders section.
The StarCraft II Grandmaster League is coming in two weeks.
From that same post I found this, seemed pretty informative –
1) Your league this season is based on last season. Losing your 1 placement will likely not send you from diamond to bronze.
2) Your placement results have NOTHING to do with your score, only whether you won or lost.
3) Since release, people who had a rough time getting some wins in the ladder have probably stopped playing, therefore, there will be an inevitable shift downward for most people still playing. There are less people worse than you, but the same amount of players of higher skill.
4) Losses were removed in attempt to prevent this. Most players (save Masters) SHOULD be around 1-1 W/L ratio, because the matchmaking is meant to prevent streaking, and should you go on a streak, the system will place you against players it thinks will make you streak in the opposite direction.
Oh and I’m still rocking my StarCraft Terran shirt, but I’ll admit I’ve been playing more and more Protoss (mostly cause they have cooler achievement avatars).
Superman: Man of Steel has a new cast member! First we heard they cast Tudors star Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, then Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent. Now it looks like we have Lois Lane with the announcement of Academy Award nominee Amy Adams being cast in the role.
“There was a big, giant search for Lois,” Snyder said. “For us it was a big thing and obviously a really important role. We did a lot of auditioning but we had this meeting with Amy Adams and after that I just felt she was perfect for it.”
Snyder declined to discuss the precise prominence of Lois in the story or any plot details about the film but he said the role is “a linchpin” to the project and that he considers it essential that Lois — an FDR-era creation – arrives on screen in 2012 with contemporary appeal and spirit.
“It goes back to what I’ve said about Superman and making him really understandable for today. What’s important to us is making him relevant and real and making him empathetic to today’s audience so that we understand the decisions he makes. That applies to Lois as well. She has to be in the same universe as him [in tone and substance].”
Oh and these guns are loaded!
I have no idea why, but all Superman news makes me think of that shirt.

The New York Post said yesterday that Stephen King is possibly in talks to write for AMC’s The Walking Dead this season. That last bit was somewhat of a bummer, I figured they already had the scripts and would start production soon, still I take this as good news overall.
Stephen King is in talks to write for the surprise hit TV series “Walking Dead” this season, according to reports.
King is an unabashed fan of the series and called it one of the 10 best TV shows of 2010 in Entertainment Weekly.
The horror writer already has a strong connection to the series.
Its creator, screenwriter Frank Darabont, adapted King’s “Shawshank Redemption” and “The Green Mile” for the movies.
The series was supposed to be only a limited series of six episodes when it debuted last fall.
But it was an instant hit and cable channel AMC quickly asked for a new, longer season, now set to begin sometime this fall.

Last year, parent company PepsiCo vowed to reduce added sugar per serving by 25 percent and saturated fat by 15 percent in its products over the next 10 years. A single serving of Cap’n Crunch contains 12 grams of sugar (which nutritionists say is almost half of the recommended daily intake) and it looks like because of this the cereal is no longer being actively marketed by Quaker (PepsiCo).
Once the #1 breakfast cereal Cap’n Crunch has fallen off a bit. Pressure from the White House and health activists is having an effect on how PepsiCo and other food companies push sweet sweet sugar products to kids. Sales of the cereal were down 6.8 percent in 2010. Overall cereal sales were $6.42 billion, down 3.25% versus 2009.
Maybe we’ll see less fat kids…. my guess in no, we won’t. I’m sure kids will find something else to overeat that’s covered in sugar.
Oh a side note, I loved Cap’n Crunch as a kid so this is sort of a bummer.
Rumor has it that after Marvel releases The Avengers, they will be gearing up for another superhero film and developing a big screen version of The Inhumans.
Most of you don’t have a clue I’m sure how the Inhumans are, here is the short version –
At the beginning of the Kree-Skrull War, millions of years ago in Earth time, the alien Kree established a station on the planet Uranus, a strategic position between the Kree and Skrull empires. Through their work at this station, they discovered that sentient life on nearby Earth had genetic potential invested in it by the alien Celestials. Intrigued, the Kree began to experiment on Earth’s then-primitive homo sapiens by splicing Eternals’ DNA into Cro-Magnons.
Their goal was apparently twofold — to investigate possible ways of circumventing their own evolutionary stagnation, and to create a powerful mutant race of soldiers for use against the Skrulls. However, although their experiments were successful in creating a strain of humanity with extraordinary abilities, the Kree abandoned their experiment for reasons which are not yet clear.
Their test subjects, the Inhumans, went on to form a society of their own, which thrived in seclusion from the rest of humanity and developed advanced technology. Experiments with the mutagenic Terrigen Mist gave them various powers, but also caused lasting genetic damage and deformities. This led to a long-term selective breeding program to try to mitigate the effects of these mutations. Their city of Attilan has frequently been relocated and, as of 2005 stories, rests in the oxygen-bearing Blue Area of the Moon.

While promoting his upcoming film, Kill the Irishman, Ray Stevenson talked about the fact that Marvel has reacquired the rights to the vigilante superhero from Lionsgate, allowing them to go ahead with a new Punisher film if they choose to.
Cinema Blend has the scoop –
Stevenson says that he’s even talked with Marvel about doing another Punisher but admits, “It’s way out of my hands.” If the opportunity arises though, he’d love to reprise his role as Frank Castle. He says, “If it’s on my path to do him again, I’ll definitely do my best.”
I know shocking, who knew, actually to be honest I thought this happened last week. Turns out it didn’t, unless I’m a time traveler or can see into the future and I refuse to rule that out just yet.
So yesterday Warner Brothers Television announced that they have decided to fire actor Charlie Sheen from the their hit show Two and a Half Men. The decision comes after an extended period of strange behavior by the actor… really if you didn’t know this part already, but anyway. I’ll just let the assosiated press sum it up for you-
Charlie Sheen was fired Monday from “Two and a Half Men” by Warner Bros. Television following repeated misbehavior and weeks of the actor’s angry, often-manic media campaign against his studio bosses.
The action was taken after “careful consideration” and is effective immediately, the studio said in a statement. No decision has been made on the show’s future without its star, said Paul McGuire, a Warner spokesman.
The actor, who has used TV, radio and social media to create a big megaphone for himself, was not silent for long.
In a text to The Associated Press, Sheen responded, with the F-word and “They lose,” followed by the word “Trolls.” Asked if he planned to sue, Sheen texted back, “Big.” As for his next move, Sheen texted, “A big one.”
A call to his attorney, Marty Singer, for comment was not immediately returned.
And the story gets a little bit better, it seems Charlie Sheen’s laywers want to lay some blame around, and they are pointing it right at Chuck!
The letter that spelled out Charlie Sheen’s termination from “Two and a Half Men” attributed much of the issue to his off-screen problems, but a lawyer for the actor believes the situation is much simpler–it comes down to showrunner Chuck Lorre “conspiring with Warner Bros.” to drop the actor from the show.
“You know how many times Charlie has had drug and rehab problems in the past? This is about the hostility between Chuck and Charlie that has gone on for years,” Sheen’s attorney Marty Singer says in an exclusive with The Hollywood Reporter.
According to Singer, beyond any personal conflict the executive producer might have with Sheen, Lorre also has a financial interest in “Men” taking a backseat to his other CBS series “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mike & Molly.”
He explains, “We believe Chuck Lorre has a better deal and stands to make more on his other shows than on Two and a Half Men, so he has an interest in making those shows flourish at the expense of my client’s show,”
Lorre’s attorney Howard Weitzman, however, tells THR, “That’s not a winning argument…The conspiracy theory is a pure fantasy.
“Chuck is very concerned for Charlie’s health. We all believe Warner Bros. did the right thing given the situation Mr. Sheen created.”
WB litigator John Spiegel reiterates the “health” aspect of Sheen’s termination, explaining, “This is not about Chuck Lorre. It’s about a serious health issue that has rendered Charlie Sheen unable to perform the essential duties of his position.”
All I have to say is, they better not mess with Chuck or Big Bang Theory or somebody will get a smack!
