Meanwhile, Ridley Scott's "Robin Hood" actually does exist right now, and it's been stirring up some reactions this week. Ben Templesmith and Chris Ryall both weighed in via tweets, and they appear to share some apprehension. Find out what they're worried about after the jump. There, you'll also see a Superman sighting from the Marvel offices, a NASCAR observation and a biographical note from Todd McFarlane.
It's all covered in the Twitter Report for May 13, 2010.
@GeoffJohns0 The goal is: SOON - but we'll see! :) @kidflash3000 when are they going to make a flash movie i've been anticipating that for years
-Geoff Johns, Writer ("Blackest Night," "The Flash")
@Todd_McFarlane BIO: Best thing about getting rejection letters from early art samples?? I collected the autographs of dozens of artists that said I sucked!
-Todd McFarlane, Writer/Artist ("Spawn," "The Amazing Spider-Man")
@Templesmith The people behind some of the ads for Robin Hood should probably be shot. I know advertising types like to do a lot of drugs but, really...
-Ben Templesmith, Writer/Artist ("30 Days of Night," "Welcome to Hoxford")
@chris_ryall King Arthur, Robin Hood... what happened to making mythical movies that actually play up the parts of the myths we all like?
-Chris Ryall, Publisher ("IDW")
@philhester Just read an unexpected TV treatment of one of my books and it was a rare instance of a Hollywood guy both getting it and adding depth. Yay!
-Phil Hester, Writer/Artist ("Green Arrow," "The Irredeemable Ant-Man")
@KurtBusiek (500) DAYS OF SUMMER was a real treat. Ann even liked Zooey Deschanel -- but fell asleep halfway through. Still, a fine inarticulate romcom.
-Kurt Busiek, Writer ("Superman," "Astro City")
@swierczy Also spotted in the @Marvel lobby yesterday: dude wearing a tie covered in Superman symbols. That's just begging for a repulsor blast.
-Duane Swierczynski, Writer ("Cable," "The Immortal Iron Fist")
@bclaymoore The other night when NASCAR was in town, I spotted a family camping with their RV in the Walmart parking lot. Grill blazing.
-B. Clay Moore, Writer ("Hawaiian Dick," "Billy Smoke")
Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@ErikJLarsen Historically, comics cost double that of a candy bar--so comics should cost roughly $1.95 but comics aren't newsprint and flat color anymore
-Erik Larsen, Writer/Artist ("Savage Dragon," "The Amazing Spider-Man")
