GEEK: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST MAKES THE COVER!

We get a first look at the new Summer Movie Preview cover of Entertainment Weekly featuring the iconic characters from X-Men: Days of Future Past. This epic is set for only one film, but will be packed with many mutants and a rich storyline of time-travel, assassination, redemption, salvation, and betrayal. Just who does any of these things is the real question. I have to admit that I miss Rebecca Romijn a bit, but J.Law will do.

TV: David Letterman: Who should replace him?

Dave Letterman (my homie) is retiring and they are already circling the carcass. Dave Letterman has truly influenced a generation of comedians, which is amazing for a “comedian” who would probably classify himself as marginal. Dave was an inspiration for me in his late night incarnations for NBC and CBS. To me, he surpasses Carson because of his ambition to shine a light on real world issues, aside from spotlighting new and up and coming comedians. He has started the careers of a few (Romano and James), but he has more so brought issues to light and questioned the absurdity of frustrating political conflagrations. Letterman is an institution unto himself and should be feted by every late night progenitor existing today. I’m sure he will be.

My vote is Amy Poehler as CBS would steal a Lorne Michaels protege and would position her against her very good friend Jimmy Fallon and Kimmel. Poehler would be brilliant.

Geek: Days of Future Past to Involve an Interesting New Mutant

Bryan Singer had a short ask me anything social network session for a half an hour today. One interesting note is that among all the mutants people noted so far, there was apparently one that had been missed, even though there’s already a picture of him floating around the internet.

Singer mentioned how much he liked working with the mutant ‘Ink’ as well as other new muties. Ink is intruiging because of his ‘powers’ and how they have been used in the comics. Could he play a significant role in the storyline? I think so!
