Duff Beer Can collectible, Fantastic Four film, The Matrix Reloaded music and Coors Wingman ad


Duff Beer CanWARNING Simpson Fans: There is a release of a Duff Beer Can that has playing cards inside. You can also get a set of coasters, poker chips etc…DO NOT confuse this can with the VERY RARE 1996 Australian cans of “Duff Beer”. Once FOX found out, it was pulled.

Marvel and Barnes & Noble re-release the Marvel Masterworks in soft cover for a reasonable $12.99. Masterworks reprint the early issues in the line of Marvel’s main titles (e.g. Spider-Man, Avengers, Hulk etc…) These collections were previously only available in hardback at a lofty price.

Variety reports that Phillip Levin (“Smallville”) is being brought in to write “Wonder Woman”.

In Marvel movie news: Mark Frost (of Twin Peaks fame) was brought in to work on the “Fantastic Four” screenplay with the overly ambitious notions of opening November 2004. No cast for Peyton Reed (“Bring it On”). FF is unlikely for 2004 with “Blade 3” and “Iron Fist” on the slate. Meanwhile, everyone is excited and happy at the X-camp except for Halle Berry, whose characters needs to be beefed up for her to return for a X3 and Bryan Singer who has not signed on for the next chaper.

Harrison Ford is taking time off to rest and prepare for the “Indiana Jones 4” shoot.

“The Matrix Reloaded” soundtrack rocks with Marilyn Manson, Linkin Park, Deftones and Rob Zombie and will most certainly play an extraordinary (and underrated) role in the movie. The musical score requires the Wachowski visuals of the film to fully appreciate the mood.

On that music note, I heard Audioslave’s “Like a Stone” on the radio. They have joined the Lollapalooza tour with Incubus and Jane’s Addiction. I really loved this band’s album, but it’s only a matter of time before “Like a Stone” ends up in a Chevy commercial.

Lastly, the Coors Light “Wingman” commercial is one of funniest ads I may have ever seen. How often do you need to listen to the words to get the gag. Simply awesome. – Check it out below
