DATELINE: DAILY BUGLE- ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY will be featuring AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 in an upcoming issue. An interview inside with star ANDREW GARFIELD quotes the actor as admitting he had discussions with director MARC WEBB of casting a man as MARY JANE WATSON. Garfield says there’s nothing wrong with Peter Parker exploring his sexuality with a Male MJ. In response, thousands of dudes were seen walking the streets of Hollywood wearing red wigs and trying different ways to say “Go Get ‘em, Tiger”.
DATE LINE: NEW YORK– A new writer will be penning SUICIDE SQUAD. Ales Kot has confirmed in a post that he is off Suicide Squad as of issue #24…but to be perfectly honest, isn’t just about everybody OFF Suicide Squad?
DATELINE: SEATTLE– Amazon has announced it is getting into the comic book business by launching a new division that will concentrate on comics and graphic novels. JET CITY COMICS will publish on Amazon’s KINDLE with comics written by GEORGE R.R. MARTIN and NEAL STEPHENSON. Even though the titles won’t come out for a couple of months, there are already GLOWING Customer Reviews on Amazon:
