Upcoming projects and announcements were all the rage in the Twitter Report feed this morning. Jon Favreau got together with his "Iron Man 2" leading man Robert Downey Jr. at his office, David Finch was announced as exclusive to DC (which Rob Liefeld says will make him the star of 2010). and Brian Michael Bendis and Bryan Hitch discussed a mature "Power Pack" collaboration that is highly suspect.
Not all of the info pouring was good, though. Actually, Chuck BB's tweet about Tila Tequila had me quite baffled until I realized both that she was engaged to Casey Johnson and that Johnson was the heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune. Tequila's fiancée passed away Monday, as I found out during a follow-up search. Check out those retweets after the jump along with Ryan North's discovery of "Invincible," which NFL team Christos Gage is going to see this weekend, and some sternly worded advice from Karl Kerschl.
It's all in the Twitter Report for for January 5, 2010.
@Jon_Favreau Hung out with Mr. and Mrs. Downey today at the IM2 offices.
-Jon Favreau, Director ("Iron Man," "Iron Man 2")
@chuckbb I have a feeling i'm missing out on not following Tila Tequila. "I'm heart is shredded"
-Chuck BB, Artist ("Black Metal")
@robertliefeld Congratulations to Dave Finch. He just became the most important artist of 2010.
-Rob Liefeld, Writer/Artist ("X-Force," "Onslaught Reborn")
@ryanqnorth I read the first 3 "Invincible" trades in 2 days and really enjoyed it! More more more please. More characters fated grow mustaches too
-Ryan North, Writer/Artist ("Dinosaur Comics")
Bendis/Hitch pt. 1: @THEHITCHFACTORY @BRIANMBENDIS Likewise, I've had to think harder about how to run at your scripts; keep essential Bendis but blend some Hitchy to it..
-Bryan Hitch, Artist ("The Ultimates," "Captain America: Reborn")
Bendis/Hitch pt. 2: @BRIANMBENDIS @THEHITCHFACTORY it will be the best issue of power pack ever!! :)
-Brian Michael Bendis, Writer ("New Avengers," "Ultimate Spider-Man")
Bendis/Hitch pt. 3: @THEHITCHFACTORY @BRIANMBENDIS ...for grown ups. The sex scenes and graphic violence you wrote may have to be toned down. This isn't a Millar Comic.
@DanSlott -it should be a good jumping on point for new viewers. (But, really, Tennant's my favorite Doctor since Tom Baker!). But to each his own. :)
-Dan Slott, Writer ("The Amazing Spider-Man," "Avengers: The Initiative")
@PiaGuerra A year ago we were buying tix to Tennant's Hamlet after lining up for hours in frigid temps. Was it worth the hypothermia? Hell yes.
-Pia Guerra, Artist ("Y: The Last Man," "Doctor Who: The Forgotten")
@Christosgage Going to the Patriots playoff game on Sunday. Cracked ribs my ass, those tickets were expensive...do NOT disappoint me, Brady!
-Christos Gage, Writer ("Union Jack," "Absolution")
