Marvel Enterprises announced on Tuesday that it has extended its contract agreement with Joe Quesada, editor-in-chief of the companyıs Marvel Comics division. As part of the deal, Quesada will also take on the added role as the chief creative officer, publishing.

"I'm thrilled to have Joe as a partner in this resurgence of interest in the comic book market," said Dan Buckley, COO and publisher of Marvel. "Joe has been invaluable in taking Marvel Comics into new and inventive creative directions, and the fans are responding to that. Thanks in part to his efforts, Marvel Comics has seen four straight years of revenue growth."

"Over the next couple of years, my ultimate goals will remain further growing Marvel Comicsı leadership position and expanding our mainstream presence. I want comics to have the same consumer prominence as movies, TV and novels and in doing so continue to grow Marvel Comics as among Americaıs premiere storytellers," Quesada said.

"The success we have had is truly a team effort. The companyıs senior management, including Avi Arad and Alan Fine, has provided me and our publisher Dan Buckley with the opportunity to build Marvel Comics into more than just a comic book publisher. With their continued support, and the hard working editors, creators and staff, I am confident that Marvel Comics will continue to flourish as one of the most innovative and exciting literary outlets."

The Continuum today begins its three-part coverage of the Ghost Rider movie from Comic-Con International in San Diego.

We start with the first half of an interview with writer/director Mark Steven Johnson and Eva Mendes, who plays Roxanne Simpson in the movie.

There seems to be no immediate movement with a Constantine sequel.

"I had heard they've talked about it, but there's nothing moving forward yet," said Karen Berger, editor of DC's Vertigo line.

"I haven't heard anything about it," said Constantine star Rachel Weisz, who, like Berger, was on the panel at Comic-Con International devoted to the film's release on DVD, which is on Tuesday.

Francis Lawrence, director on Constantine, got tied up in commitments in Australia and could not make the panel.

The panel included a lengthy slide show, some of the 18 minutes of deleted scenes from the DVD and a clip of Lawrence from the documentary Constantine Cosmology -- The Mythology Behind the Movie.

Weisz said she did most of her own stunts in the film.

"I didn't do the falling through the glass," she said. "But I did most of them. I like doing stunts. I think they're fun."

The Deluxe Editon of the DVD also includes a Hellblazer mini-comic book with three stories and biograophies, and a music video from A Perfect Circle.

The Deluxe Edition of Constantine will be available in widescreen DVD format at $30.99 and the single disc of Constantine will be available for $28.98 in separate full screen and widescreen DVD formats.
