So many awesome bits of news and release dates in this round-up, but this one has me the most excited: 07) Jim Byrkit and Alex Manugian (Rango) will write Fraggle Rock. The idea of Fraggle Rock + Rango is phenomenal.

So not only does Clarice have to stop a serial killer, she has to protect herself from an abusive ex-husband that she can't seem to escape?

Holy cow. I think I have to see Spider Man now. I suppose Marvel is moving forward with some Civil War plotline .

Also, did the girl in the Umbrella recruitment vid look like Rebecca Black, or was that just me?

[EDIT] I should have read the article. I don't get why Marvel doesn't have the rights to use Norman Osborne though.

Why Mockingbird Lane? Why aren't they just calling it The Munsters?

Really upset that Sony are douches and won't even let Norman Osborne be in Iron Man 3 as the iron patriot. Such bullshit.

I'm kinda bummed it's split so the series finale won't actually be until over a year from now. Oh well.
