Brian Michael Bendis may not be writing the script for "Spider-Man 4," but that doesn't mean he doesn't know how he would approach the film. Rob Liefeld, meanwhile, remains extremely confident that Bretty Ratner is the right director to bring "Youngblood" to theaters, and according to a tweet yesterday, Ratner is still on board.
In non-movie-related posts, Chris Ryall reminisced about retiring pitcher Randy Johnson's famous bird-killer pitch, which is quite a sight to see if you've never watched the replay. Scope out those retweets after the jump along with Tom Brevoort's take on Matt Smith in "Doctor Who" and a contemplation of Disney's line-waiting policies.
It's all in the Twitter Report for January 6, 2010.

@chris_ryall Farewell to the Big Unit. Baseball'll miss him. Also, not everyone could explode a flying bird with a 95-mph heater like he could. And did.

Disney lines pt. 1 @bradmeltzer Disney now allows rich people to pay more to cut the line and get on rides. Help me stop it. I'm serious..
-Brad Meltzer, Writer ("Identity Crisis," "Justice League of America")
Disney lines pt. 2 @marcbernardin @bradmeltzer in other words, pay $1800 and be famous. Because that's the way they treat VIPs: no lines if you're a real celeb.
