EARLIER: Since EW gained former L.A. Times Hero Complex star Geoff Boucher, his new CapeTown blog -- covering all things superhero, genre and fanboy/girl -- has been a huge success, generating 2.5 million page views in its first month, which is close to the number of monthly readers the five-year-old LAT blog gets.

EW continues to push the Capetown blog and brand with the launch of the CapeTown Film Festival;  EW will also put Boucher and Capetown front and center in Hall H at July's Comic-Con convention.

A highlight of the six-day festival and a major programming coup is a screening of "Return of the Jedi" on "Star Wars" day, Saturday, May 4. The screening celebrates the film's 30th anniversary and is one of the few times since the "Star Wars" rereleases in 1997 that moviegoers can see the classic on the big screen. Major "Star Wars" players are expected to participate. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Time Warner is hanging onto its magazines-- as the Meredith deal fell apart-- as it spins them into a separate unit. EW isn't on the chopping block -- yet.
