CBlogs of 5.5.2008 + Awesome Marvel News

Swing low, sweet recap, comin' fore to carry me hoooome!

Not a lot of activity in the blogs today. Must be finals week or something. Only about fifty entries or so all day, making this the easiest Monday ever. As such, however, there really isn't a whole lot for me to talk about. I could tell you how I watched The Bourne Identity with my fiance tonight (who hasn't seen any of the films) after showing her the demo for Bourne Conspiracy (which looks like it'll kick ass). But you probably don't want to read about that and I honestly have better things to write. Enjoy your recap and I'll see you tomorrow.

UPDATE: Awesome Marvel News now follows recap

I didn't want to do a double-post (see, kids? That's called "blogging etiquette"), so I'm tacking on to the end of the recap because it's too fucking excellent for me not to mention. I was playing that NewsBlaster game Chad mentioned on the front page and the first headline I get is about Iron Man and the announcement of a sequel being released on April 30th, 2010!

But that's not all! The article goes on to mention that four other Marvel films will be forthcoming:

“Thor,” due out June 4, 2010; “The First Avenger: Captain America,” May 6, 2011; “The Avengers,” July 2011; and “Ant-Man,” which is in development but has no release date.

Now, I'd heard rumblings of Ant-Man for a while and I'm not surprised to see it still has no verified date, but Thor?! A Captain America movie (I'm not counting that other one, fuck you), finally?! Fuck me sideways, this is looking like a great time to be a comic book fan.
