Did you leave "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" scratching your head over Stan Lee's absence? Well, he laid out a simple explanation on his Twitter account this weekend that should tell you which Marvel films he will or will not appear in going forward.
Meanwhile, Erik Larsen tweeted at length about the different demands placed on artists in comics versus animation and interjected a critique of "Sin City." Check out all of those posts, as well as Edgar Wright's affection for "X Factor," Dan Slott's father/son bonding moment over "Mad Men," and much more.
It's all in the Twitter Report for October 19, 2009.
"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" cameo pt 1: @smilinstanlee Lots of fellow titterers ask why I didn't have a cameo in Wolverine. Answer is simple. It was shot in Australia. Didn't have time to go.
-Stan Lee, Writer ("The Amazing Spider-Man," "Ravage 2099")
"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" cameo pt 2: @smilinstanlee Alas, I only do cameos for pix shot in Los Angeles since I ain't got time to travel. Besides, I wanna help the L.A. Chamber of Commerce!
@Jon_Favreau What a bad day for New York football. At least I have Treehouse of Horrors to look forward to.
-Jon Favreau, Director ("Iron Man," "Iron Man 2")
@ErikJLarsen Some things just don't translate literally to the screen. Sin City tried and while there were great moments there were awkward ones too.
-Erik Larsen, Writer/Artist ("Savage Dragon," "The Amazing Spider-Man")
@andydiggle Dear Apple: please be sure to include a proper Comics section in your iBook App Store. Not e-books. Comics. Thanks!
-Andy Diggle, Writer ("The Losers," "Hellblazer")
@beckycloonan Back in Sao Paulo, the beach was amazing! thumbnailed an issue of Demo, and organized another project, took notes and sketched a ton.
-Becky Cloonan, Writer/Artist ("East Coast Rising," "American Virgin")
@edgarwright I may admit to watching X FACTOR, just to discuss the glorious moment of TV when John & Edward went goo goo over each other mid Britney song
-Edgar Wright, Director ("Scott Pilgrim vs. The World")
@DanSlott Tonight's Mad Men was the 1st time my Dad ever called me at home to say "Did you just see that?" about something on TV that wasn't sports.
-Dan Slott, Writer ("Avengers: The Initiative," "The Amazing Spider-Man")
