I really liked that issue - it was fun and had some interesting Wade backstory. Always a plus.
And speaking of Deadpool: OMG, the toys! The toysssssss!
I kinda totally want that T-Ray. Also, Deadpool with Thor wings. Also X-Man Deadpool.

Jane Austen's Mr. Darcy Unveiled?
Will people kill me if I say he looks a bit like a pansy?
Let's observe a moment of silence for Mike Myers' sense of humor
Raise your hand if you wanted to throw things at the screen when you saw the trailer for the terrible new Myers movie I can't even remember the name of.
Ledger's family to attend new Batman premiere.
When I saw the trailer before Iron Man, I almost felt guilty for being so excited - but I'm sure Heath Ledger would want us to be excited. I'm glad his family will be going.
J.K. Rowling on the power of failure
Just get right back on that horse, folks.
Jon Favreau might not direct Iron Man 2
I can't believe Marvel would be that nuts. I mean, Iron Man was FREAKIN' AWESOME. One of the best comic-based movies ever, IMO. It's making them a mint. If they have to pay the guy a (reasonable) bit more for the next one, well, shoot. DO IT. Just give us a sequel as kick-ass as the first one.
Will Hancock ruin Iron Man 2?
Interesting - I could definitely see similarities between Hancock and the Demon in a Bottle Iron Man storyline.

A Little Family Spat Plays Itself Out in the Amazon Reviews
Reading this makes me sad. It especially makes me sad because I know someone who is friends with the author, and says she's a "remarkable woman." He's a good judge of character. To me, this means her father is most likely JUST as bad as he's made out to be in her book.
Robert Downey Jr. in Cowboys and Aliens
More funny RDJr.? SIGN ME UP.
Which brings me to: Robert Downey Jr. to be Sherlock Holmes?
Really? Well, honestly, he'd never be my first thought for it, but on the other hand, once I start thinking about it, it's not a half bad idea. On the OTHER other hand, they're not talking about Conan Doyle's (♥) version of Holmes. Which, ironically, is what I was thinking of when I considered whether RDJr. might be good for the role. I don't know the comic book version, but I'd kinda like to see him try his hand at ACD's version.
Christian Bale: 'The Joker' Did Not Kill Heath Ledger
Although it probably contributed to his lack of sleep, in all honesty. I mean, he himself said that. But no, I never really thought it drove him to death or anything.

Love love love. But WHERE'S MY DEADPOOL???
