Writing Comic Books 'not for everyone'
David Morrell is the creator of Rambo and a while ago, someone at Marvel thought it would be a great idea to have him write a Spider-Man story. All did not go to plan. The story took forever to come out, and when it did, Morrell did not like the changes:
“Bad news about the second part of my Spider-Man: Frost comic-book series,” Morrell wrote to Facebook. “Someone at Marvel changed my captions, added weak jokes, repeated captions, deleted captions from panels that needed them, and inserted one caption that contradicts the theme. When I saw this early version, I sent three pages of corrections to Marvel. I was assured that my changes had been made, but for whatever reason, the terrible version got printed, destroying the poignant tone of part one. What a pity. This could have been a gem.”

Classic Jack Kirby - Mister Miracle #1
Kirby's initial concept for Mister Miracle was to launch the series and shortly thereafter turn it over to Steve Ditko. But then DC Comics publisher Carmine Infantino veto'd that plan. So Kirby (along with co-plotter Mark Evanier) kept the title going for 18 issues (last issue March 1974), which was the longest running of any of Kirby's "Fourth World" series at DC Comics. Big Barda, Mister Miracles partner, was based upon Kirby's wife Roz and on the singer/actress Lainie Kazan.

Chris Nolan's Intersteller trailer
Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Michael Caine are in Nolan's follow-up to Dark Knight Rises with a film on space travel through a wormhole, thus defeating physical limitations for intersteller flight. The story was originally a Spielberg project in 2006 but was never started. Nolan's Snycopy productions has taken over the project and are merging Chris Nolan's script with the original treatment made by Chris Nolan's brother Jonathan Nolan. Paramount is releasing it in the domestic markets and Legendary/Warner Bros will do the worldwide markets. It is slated for November, 2014.
