SUPERMAN RETURNS ON IMAX

IMAX Corporation and Warner Bros. Pictures announced that Superman Returns will be simultaneously released to both IMAX and conventional theaters on June 30.

The 35mm version of Superman Returns will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience and Warner Bros. Pictures will be the exclusive distributor of the film to the worldwide IMAX theatre network.

"Superman Returns is going to be an epic adventure, and by also offering the film in IMAX's format, we're giving audiences a unique way to experience the return of the Man of Steel," said Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution at Warner Bros. Pictures. "The IMAX theatre network is generating impressive box office returns for Warner Bros. Pictures, and we're excited to continue releasing more of our biggest films in IMAX's format."

Here's how the movie is described:

"Following a mysterious absence of several years, the Man of Steel comes back to Earth in the epic action-adventure Superman Returns , a soaring new chapter in the saga of one of the world's most beloved superheroes. While an old enemy plots to render him powerless once and for all, Superman faces the heartbreaking realization that the woman he loves, Lois Lane, has moved on with her life. Or has she? Superman's bittersweet return challenges him to bridge the distance between them while finding a place in a society that has learned to survive without him. In an attempt to protect the world he loves from cataclysmic destruction, Superman embarks on an epic journey of redemption that takes him from the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of outer space."

Last summer, Batman Begins set IMAX records with its release in the format.

* The 10th Muse #5 has sold out, Blue Water Productions is reporting. The issue -- the third of the series to sell out -- featured Emma on a road-trip to Oklahoma, where she has a close encounter with the gorgon brothers, Styx and Stone - and Hell hath no fury like an irritated immortal.

"This was a fun issue for us. It's always fun to play with new characters and branch out of your normal routine," writer Darren Davis said. "We're very happy that we've had as many sell-outs as we have. We take that to mean the fans like what we're doing, and we really want to keep that up and deliver bigger and better each month."

* According to Variety, Marvel has regained the film rights of Iron Man from New Line Cinema. It is unclear if Marvel will try to produce the film itself or team with a studio.

* Coming Friday: Marvel news -- and much more!!!
