‘Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2,’ ‘The Thing’ And SDCC In Today’s Twitter Report

If you caught a midnight screening of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ last night, you were not alone. Stephen Colbert tweeted about his mad rush to make it in time, though Skottie Young did not think he was young enough to stick out.

In the meantime, everyone’s had San Diego Comic-Con on their brains for next week. Jim Lee’s still rolling out his “Justice League” pencils in anticipation of the show. Scope ’em out after the jump. His art, Paul Cornell’s thoughts on the remake of “The Thing” and an IDW dream project await you down below.

I’m @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for July 15, 2011.

@jimlee00 Some Justice League pencils…done oh so long ago; can’t wait for the oversized WB SDCC bags! http://twitpic.com/5qcwr5
-Jim Lee, Artist (“Batman,” “X-Men”)

@BrianLynch Watching BIG BROTHER. Orwell would be turning over in his grave, CBS’ adaptation is not at all faithful.
-Brian Lynch, Writer (“Angel: After the Fall,” “Monkey Man Unleashed”)

@Paul_Cornell It’s great to see that new ’The Thing’ movie leads with a woman. Every other part in the trailer is obvious cannon fodder.
-Paul Cornell, Writer (“Action Comics,” “Knight and Squire”)

@mrmarkmillar I liked Crusade a lot, but would adhere to the Simon Pegg’s quote that Henry Jones is the franchise’s Scrappy Doo.
-Mark Millar, Writer (“Kick-Ass,” “Wanted”)

@skottieyoung I wish I was 10 years younger so I could make thru a midnight movie. I’d be watching Harry Potter like a boss tonight.
-Skottie Young, Artist (“New X-Men,” “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”)

@StephenAtHome Sorry for rushing tonight, but I only had 30 seconds to get from my studio to my midnight screening of Harry Potter! Accio front-row seats!
-Stephen Colbert, Creator/Host (“Tek Jansen,” “The Colbert Report”)

@AXECOP Axe Cop is going to be translated into Italian. How do you say Axe Cop in Italian? Would that be “Spola dell’ascia”?
-Ethan Nicolle, Writer/Artist (“Axe Cop”)

@chris_ryall Not an announcement at #SDCC, but one of my dark dreams projects is to do Buffalo Bill prequel comics. #putthef—ingcomicinthebasket
-Chris Ryall, CCO (IDW)

@GuyDavisART really wanting a cool John Carter of Mars movie~ not digging the looks of the upcoming Disney one, but hope it’s at least fun
-Guy Davis, Writer/Artist (“The Marquis,” “B.P.R.D.”)
