DAMN THAT WAS FAST! Just last night I posted an item that there were rumors afloat that MSNBC was reportedly considering giving Rev. Al Sharpton his own show on MSNBC after network honchos were impressed with The Rev's performance and ratings while subbing during the 6PM time slot for the regular host at that time Cenk Uyger who was on an extended vacation.

I wasn't at all a fan of Bryan Singer's 2006 film of the superhero; would my lack of appreciation for it have been positively influenced if this 5 1/2-minute intro sequence from the extras on the recently-released Superman anthology Blu-ray, wasn't left on the cutting room floor? Uh... no. And it cost $10 million! How many movies could Spike Lee have made with that?

I might be one of the few who's actually not particularly interested in revisiting the Spider-Man franchise, even though the 3rd and final entry in Sam Raimi's franchise of films absolutely sucked! No redemption necessary by the studio; just move on and given us some new superheroes - black ones would be nice.
