Chris Nolan "Batman 3" getting underway

Anne Hathaway as Catwoman

From Fandango online:

"...the third installment of Christopher Nolan's 'Batman' franchise. Most (if not all) of the same cast will be returning (Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman and Michael Caine), but this time around Bruce Wayne will need a new love interest and a new villain or two to square off against.

... it appears as if Nolan has chosen Tom Hardy (Inception, Bronson) to play "a lead role" in the new Batman movie, presumably as one of the main villains since, other than a replacement for Harvey Dent, there doesn't seem to be anyone else for him to play. Because Hardy is so versatile, the list of villains he could potentially play is pretty long – from The Riddler to Killer Croc, there are a number of large-and-in-charge bad boys this actor could take on."

"Batman 3" (surely this won't be the title) will go to theatre screens July 20, 2012.

Frank Frazetta SKetchbook

Frazetta Bio riddled with errors

August 19, 2010: Possibly the worst of the Frazetta bios to come along in the wake of his death is this one just published in the Brooklyn Eagle. The dates are a bit mixed up, and the resume given for Frazetta's achievements are only marginally correct or just flat-out wrong. Obviously the paper is trying to lionize a native son, but surprisingly poor journalism went into the fact-checking. Here's a sample quote:

"In the 1940s, he became addicted to comic books and comic book art. His comic book contributions started with Buck Rogers but then he sat in for Al Capp by drawing “Lil Abner.” He moved on to “Tarzan,” and eventually “Little Annie Fannie” for Playboy magazine.

But his claim to fame was his creation for the Conan the Barbarian comics in 1966."

A simply awful (or hilarious) biography sure to be quoted authoritatively in many places through the magic of the internet and search engines.
