    So Star Wars Episode 7 is now a thing. According to the release on Disney's official website, it sounds like Lucas himself will only be a creative consultant. That seems to suggest that there will be people in place to overrule Lucas if he creatively consults something that's really stupid.

    This gives me a flicker of hope.

    Also, Disney will make up that 4 billion dollars in no time.

    Cool enough. Could certainly make for some interesting new material.

    I'm just finding the jokes tiring already.

    VADER VS. DOOM Now, before the moment passes.
    Superhero comic books only become art to the extent that their banal, unrealistic fantasy and garish styles go too far and become interesting. Attempts to ground them in reality can only ruin them.

    Holy crap ... I'm actually very excited by this. Hopefully they can keep a high level of quality with the new films a la "Clone Wars" cartoon series.

    Quote from the Disney release:

    In 2015, we're planning to release Star Wars Episode 7 – the first feature film under the "Disney-Lucasfilm" brand. That will be followed by Episodes 8 and 9 – and our long term plan is to release a new Star Wars feature film every two to three years.
    Well, that doesn't exactly fuel my small flicker of hope.

    Also, does this mean we'll get a Star Wars world in Kingdom Hearts 3?

    I'm curious where they'll go with Episode 7 and beyond. I'm sure they'll do a trilogy, because why wouldn't you? But I don't know enough about the EU, especially in the post-RotJ time period to know what might come next.

    It would certainly be odd if they were to recast Luke, Leia, and Han though. I'm sure there's plenty of other major characters that come along, but I could see them trying to stick with what everyone already knows.
    I like Ultimate Comics. - Read them with us!

    I also buy: Captain America, Avengers, FF, New Avengers, X-Factor, among others
