SMALLVILLE UPDATE

Lee Thompson Young is playing Cyborg in an upcoming episode of The WB's Smallville, The Continuum has learned.

Young, 21, starred for three seasons in Disney Channel's The Famous Jett Jackson. He also appeared in the film Friday Night Lights and will be in the upcoming series South Beach.

His other TV guest spots include Jake 2.0 and The Guardian and he has provided voice roles for The Proud Family and Xiaolin Showdown.

The "Cyborg" episode of Smallville will likely air during the February sweeps.



ULTIMATE AVENGERS UPDATE

The Ultimate Avengers movie was recently screened, and those involved with the project came away happy.

"I finally got to see the finished product, and loved it," writer Greg Johnson told The Continuum. " Great care and attention was given to the production, and watching it in high def with the stellar music and powerful sound design made it a real treat. It's definitely a must-have for any Marvel fan."

"Without giving too much away I can definitely say that the fans will be very saitisfied," said co-director/designer Steve Gordon. "It definitely achieves a much higher quality level of animation and storytelling than either X-Men:TAS or Spider-Man:TAS and equal or better in many ways to X-M:E too -- and you know how high a regard I hold that show.

"One of the things I most feared was whether or not the overseas studio would be able to handle my character designs - I breathed a huge sigh of relief. While I might quibble about certain specifics I think overall they captured the feel of what I designed."

Johnson is currently working on the Wolverine and the X-Men animated series, and Gordon is working on the direct-to-DVD Stan Lee Presents The Condor from IDT Entertainment/Film Roman.

NARWAIN'S NEPTUNE

Narwain Publishing has announced a March release for Neptune, a graphic novel written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, with art by Wellington Dias.

Here's how Narwain describes the book:

"The delicate treaty between surface world and the submerged city of Atlantis is jeopardized when a super villain terrorist tries to launch a war that will bring him power over the earth. One man, possessing the power of the god Neptune, must stop him.

"Neptune features political intrigue, super villains, terrorists, spies, giant sea monsters, strange new sciences and a lawless border town in the middle of the ocean."

Palmiotti said he's happy to be working with Narwain: "We're very excited that Narwain has let us create something from scratch and be totally involved with ever aspect of the book. Also, Narwain is launching this in several markets around the world simultaneously which is a big plus."
