Answers to yesterday’s questions!

Luke Cage asked:

Now that the 2 trilogies have been combined into one epic tale, what do you think Lucas will do next with the Star Wars franchise?

I think that George will put great effort into his TV ventures in the hope that he can take over the space once dominated by the Star Trek franchise.

I also think he (or his heirs) will remake the original trilogy.

I don't know if you are a comic book fan, but if you are, are you as stoked about the Bryan Singer Superman movie coming out next summer considering the great job he did on the 2 X-Men movies?

Oh, Frank, you missed a classic rant from me back in September about me and comic books. (smile)

I think this incarnation of Superman will probably go over well. The way that Wolverine adhered so closely to the way he is in the comics shows that Singer knows how to handle this genre. Kevin Spacey will kick ass as Lex Luthor.

Having said that, I doubt I’ll catch this in the theatre. I avoid comic book movies in general nowadays, but I might be interested in seeing a Doctor Strange or Thor movie.

Joss Whedon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame is doing Wonder Woman, and he’s good (I loved Buffy), but how can Wonder Woman not be a T&A fest? Great for the guys, but not for me.

Ribbiticus asked:

If a genie were to give you three wishes, what would they be and why?

Can I start by wishing for more wishes? No? (smile)

Whenever I think about wishes, I think about wishes that go awry, like in the short story The Monkey’s Paw.

If I had to come up with something I’d wish that any future children of mine would be healthy and extremely intelligent. I’d save the last wish for an unforeseen emergency.

Who are your top three favorite authors and one book of theirs that you really love.

Oh, this is tough.

Let me tell you, I was enraged at the horrible adaptation that Sci-Fi Channel did of Earthsea. Grrr!

I’ll answer the remaining questions tomorrow!

WHOA!!! Are you a THOR fan too? Geez lou-eeeez! The God of Thunder is my dawg. In fact, I repped him in my current blog as one of my top 5 favorite heroes. I too think he should get the Hollywood treatment especially with what movies are doing today with special fx. Okay, I'm off to read your comicbook post.. BRB

Yes, I was into Thor in the Walt Simonson era. He brought the mythology back into the comic, and I'm very fascinated with the mythology of other cultures, so it appealed to me.

Speaking of mythology, one of these days I need to read Neil Gaiman's American Gods, which I think has some members of the Norse pantheon in it.
