    The Star Wars fan site IESB.net posted a video of Ben Affleck on the red carpet for his new movie Surviving Christmas, and he talks briefly about what he'd like to see in a DD sequel... warning, there is coarse language...


    If your internet connection is too slow, basically Affleck says right now he'll return as DD if they want to make another one and he's interested. He'd like to see a story based on Guardian Devil with Mysterio, or maybe even Born Again, but it would take some negotiation with Fox to do these kinds of dark tales.

  • 14/10 - [PR: New Evanescence DVD/CD]

    October 13, 2004

    WIND-UP RECORDS ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF EVANESCENCE'S TWO DISC DVD/CD anywhere but home ON NOVEMBER 23, 2004 Hamish Hamilton directed concert offered in 5.1 and two-track mixes alongside an hour of behind-the-scenes footage and the band's four music videos with special surprises.

    Additional bonus content includes the studio recording of "Missing," which is previously unreleased

    New York --- Amy Lee's passionate vocals, combined with the band's aggressive muscularity have helped Evanescence's debut album Fallen sell over 12 million copies worldwide. Beyond the slew of awards received, which included two Grammy Awards in 2003 (Best New Artist, and for "Bring Me to Life," Best Hard Rock Performance), the band became a touring phenomenon across The World. In cities across The United States, Europe, Asia, and Australia, Evanescence sold-out venues, which by the Summer of 2004 regularly averaged 15,000 fans a night. Few other bands saw each appearance bring out exponentially larger turn-outs with each new visit, and by the end of the run Evanescence had performed live for over a million fans.

    On November 23, 2004, Wind-up Records will release Evanescence's anywhere but home, capturing one night of the magic as cameras entered The Zenith in Paris to capture the phenomenon. The two-disc DVD/CD features Evanescence's recent sold-out European tour and is offered in both 5.1 and two-track audio mixes. In addition to the live concert DVD, which was directed by Hamish Hamilton (U2, Peter Gabriel), anywhere but home also includes a CD of the concert presented in a two-track mix, and the previously unreleased studio recording of the composition "Missing." The DVD features the bands four music videos ("Bring Me to Life," "Going Under," My Immortal," and "Everybody's Fool,"), an hour-long behind-the-scenes program, and some special surprises in addition to the concert film. The special surprises will be discovered by the viewer as they navigate the menus designed exclusively for this special release.

    All of the hits are included on anywhere but home, in addition to a cover of Korn's "Thoughtless" which has become a fan favorite. The track listing of the performance in running order is "Haunted," "Going Under," "Taking Over Me," "Everybody's Fool," "Thoughtless," "My Last Breath," "Farther Away," "Breathe No More," "My Immortal," "Bring Me to Life," "Tourniquet," "Imaginary," and "Whisper."

    Ben Affleck Wins $356,400 at Poker

    (c) The Associated Press

    COMMERCE, Calif. (AP) - Ben Affleck won $356,400 at a poker tournament that also earned him a seat in next year's World Poker Tour Championship, casino officials said.

    The 31-year-old actor outlasted a field of 90 players to capture the Commerce Casino's California State Poker Championship.

    At the final table, Affleck beat poker pro Stan Goldstein, who finished second, and knocked out Chuck Pacheco, president and co-founder of Castle Rock Entertainment, who finished third.

    Fellow actor Tobey Maguire went out on the first day of the three-day tournament that ended Sunday.

    The win in the $10,000 buy-in event earned Affleck the opportunity to take a $25,000 seat in the World Poker Tour Championship to be held next April in Las Vegas.

  • 19/03 - [Identity Disc & Powerless]

    Newsarama has posted info on some new titles coming in June, and there are two titles which will definitely be of interest to DD fans.

    The first is Identity Disc, a 5 part series written by Robert Rodi, with art by John Higgins and Jimmy Palmiotti. The preview blurb reads as follows:

    When six of Marvel's most violent and cunning villains join forces, the fate of every hero in the world is at stake. Sabretooth, Bullseye, the Juggernaut, Deadpool, Sandman and the Vulture -- are forced to work together by a mysterious agent who somehow knows every dark and dirty secret in their violent lives. Their mission: to retrieve the nearly priceless Identity Disc -- purported to contain the true identities, the home addresses and even the credit reports of every hero in the Marvel Universe. To obtain the disc, hidden deep in the bowels of a practically impenetrable A.I.M. terrorist base, this agent will need an army. Or six super-villains. But how long can these psychopaths work together before the chaos begins?

    The other title is Powerless, written by Matt Cherniss & Peter Johnson, with art by Michal Gaydos. What if Matt Murdock didn't have his powers? Would he still be a hero?

    What makes a hero? Is it his actions, or is it the results of those actions? POWERLESS explores what it means to be a hero in very human terms. By re-imagining Marvel.s most popular characters without superhuman powers, this series will strip down to the core heroes we have all come to know and love. These characters . including Peter Parker, Matt Murdock and Logan -- were fated to be heroes. Just because Peter Parker wasn.t bitten by a radioactive spider doesn't mean he didn't do battle with a madman named Norman Osborn. Matt Murdock? Blinded, yes -- but with no heightened senses. However, he did become a legal champion of the poor in Hell's Kitchen, and he did cross paths with Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin. And Logan is, of course, the enigmatic -- and amnesiac -- drifter on the run from his past.

  • 26/02 - [Black Widow movie]

    Lions Gate Films has been granted the license to produce a Black Widow movie. Here's a snippet from their press release:

    One of Marvel's most prominent female characters, the Black Widow has been thrilling readers with her adventures for 40 years. Trained by the KGB to be the Soviet Union's premier spy, Natasha Romanov found herself a woman without a cause or a country to serve when the Berlin Wall came down. International intrigue and suspense meet the hi-tech gadgetry and spectacle that can only be found in Marvel Comics as the Black Widow tries to find her place in a world without borders.

  • 30/01 - [More Than Human]

    Matt Powers sent me this item in e-mail this morning, and it should interest Daredevil fans!

    There was a show called More Than Human on the Discovery Channel. It featured a blind man named Dan Kish who uses a form of echolocation (the stuff that bats and dolphins use) to locate objects around him. He uses tongue clicks to make sounds that bounce off objects and tell his ears where they are. In a way allowing him to see. It is being repeated on February 1st at 1 PM (Eastern Standard Time in the US... check local listings).

    Here is the episode link on the Discovery Channel website:
