There used to be a time when a synopsis for a movie was considered a spoiler but in recent times everything up to and including the script is online before the movies come out. Take the Oliver Stone George Bush movie W for example. (POSSIBLE SPOILERS)

Justice League Movie On Again

DC Comic’s The Justice LeagueDC Comic’s The Justice League

On again, off again.

Hollywood works like that.

Because of the writers strike in Hollywood, Warner Bros. “shelved” their planned big budget, live action ‘Justice League’ movie back on January 16, 2008.

Movie was to be directed by George Miller (‘Happy Feet’) and starred Adam Brody as the Flash, rapper Common as the Green Lantern, and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman. Movie was to be based on the popular DC Comic characters.

But now that the strike is over, the WB has once again given the movie a green light and everyone is back at work including screenwriters Kieran and Michele Mulroney, with production slated to start later this year.

How IMDB leaked the ending of The Dark Knight

Considering just how top secret all information is around the new Batman movie its a hard thing to imagine but yes without any spolier warnings IMDB have posted on their website the ending to the Batman movie.

First we want to let you know that there are going to be no spoilers in this article. Since its been ruined for us we dont want the same for you!

Since the tragic end of Heath Ledger recently IMDB has been posting all the news from the Associated Press directly. What they included on their daily Movie/TV news page is nothing short of giving away the ending to the movie. The article called “Australia Mourns Ledger Loss” has an interview with a movie producer by the name of Clint Morris. Included in his quotes are statements that give no doubt about what happens to The Joker in The Dark Knight and what happens at the end.

For those who do want to read the spoiler it can be found here. Half way into the paragraph. As you can see it doesn’t exactly take a rocket scientist to figure this one out. For a set of movies where everything is kept secret to the point where fake production titles are being used we can imagine that Warner Bros will be talking to IMDB very soon.

Update:
We don’t want to spoil you purposefully or anything, but just in case IMDB takes it down, we present before you the news as it is on IMDB:

CES 2008: Voltaic Solar Bag saves Earth, but not your money

Voltaic’s Generator bag

Out in the gadget wilderness there are all sorts of energy saving solar-powered concoctions designed to save the Earth like some kind of inanimate superhero, with each claiming to be more super than the last. It’s no surprise then that CES 2008 brings with it its own contenders for the next batch of gadgets to appease the likes of Al Gore.

The Voltaic Generator bag (pictured) promises to produce 14.7 watts of energy from the giant solar panel on the front of the bag, that’s enough to charge a laptop from a whole days worth of sunlight. According to Voltaic, no other bag can do this.

Every wannabe superhero comes equipped with accessories, where would Batman and James Bond be without theirs? The bag includes adaptors for phones as well as a car charger and is compatible with USB devices.

And just in case you find yourself in one of the less sunnier climes like this London-based blogger there is a battery inside should you run out of solar energy.

Of course not everyone can be superhero. Priced at a whopping $599 that’s still the case. Why are environmentally-friendly gadgets always so expensive? 

The Dark Knight Teaser Poster’s out!

Among the movies I’m looking forward to the most next year is The Dark Knight, the promising sequel to Batman Begins. Since Batman Begins is the only superhero movie I can bear and like (except for some ridiculous bits like Ra’s al Ghul’s involvement and such), I am naturally excited for its sequel. While its teaser trailer appears to be a way off, we certainly have news in the teasing section.

SuperHeroHype got the official The Dark Knight teaser poster! We give them their bodies’ worth of kudos and bring before you the poster itself! Click on the image below!

Why so serious? It ties in with the viral marketing campaign that’s being tossed around the Internet lately, and hints at the new look of The Joker. I like the way they used the new Batman logo as Joker’s lips, although Joker’s trademark smile isn’t quite viewable. 🙁
