Joel Silver, producer of the V for Vendetta movie, said he's optimistic about the film's chances when it opens on Friday.

"I'm positive about the movie," he said recently at the film's press junket at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York. "I think this one is very good and every effective and very strong. I'm proud of the whole group here and the movie we've made, and I think that people are responding to it."

That being said, Silver also admitted "I don't have a clue" at what makes certain movies click at the box office.

"I try to do what I want to see and I hope people agree with me," he said. "There's so many things at work; climate and timing is so important to a movie. What else is going around it and what's opening the same week it opens. There are so many issues that have to happen and the stars have to align to make a movie work.

"People say it's a miracle to get a movie made at all in our business. Forget about getting one made, having it be good and having it be a hit. It's like impossible. But you keep at it."

Among Silver's future projects is Wonder Woman, to be written and directed by Joss Whedon.

Chris Batista told The Continuum he is the artist of the fifth and 10th issues of DC Comics' weekly 52 series.

Week 5 of the book will ship on June 7 and features such a surprise that DC will not include the cover image in its June solicitations to be released on Monday.

Batista told The Continuum that the issue features Steel and Alan Scott and also includes appearances by Adam Strange, Animal Man and Starfire.

"It explains something. It's kind of a quiet issue," he said. "It does set up many things, though."

Working from breakdowns by Keith Giffen, Batista is part of a rotation of artists working on the title. He said there is no set order of artists.

"Really, it's just who is available," he said. "It keeps things moving that way."

Batista's second issue of the series will be Week 10, due in July. He said that issue will include Clark Kent and Black Adam.

"It's really nice to be asked to be part of this," he said. "I'm having fun."


Ape Entertainment has announced it will publish U.T.F. (Undead Task Force), a former Speakeasy Comics title.

U.T.F., created by William Wilson, Scott Reynolds and Tone Rodriguez, will be available in April.

"We are working with Diamond Comic Distributors and everyone else involved to fulfill all orders placed for U.T.F. #1 that were solicited while at Speakeasy." said Brent Erwin, Ape Entertainment's director of marketing. "We want to make the transition of U.T.F. to Ape as smooth as possible for both creators and retailers alike."

Here's how Ape describes the book:

The Undead Task Force is America's elite corps of soldiers, trained to deal with dark forces the general population knows nothing about. Whether it's a zombie infestation in New Orleans or an entire Los Angeles prison turned vampiric, the U.T.F. is there to end a deadly situation."


Narwain Publishing is teaming with Arcana Studios for Jenna Meets 100 Girls #1, a crossover scheduled for release in June.

The book is by the regular 100 Girls team of writer Adam Galladro and artist Todd Demong.

Here's how Narwain describes the story:

"After retrieving a mysterious book, which may hold the answers to her destiny, Jenna hopes for a little peace and quiet to try and read the darned thing! Unfortunately, peace and quiet isn't on the menu. A mysterious, super-powered warrior who is looking for Sylvia (who helped Jenna get the book in the first place) attacks her and her friend, Hall. There's something oddly familiar about the warrior, but Jenna may not survive to figure out what it is."

"It's fun to have Sylvia interact in a different world from her own. Especially a magical one," said Sean O'Reilly, editor-in-chief at Arcana Studios. "Magic is something that isn't normally in the world of 100 Girls which is a pure sci-fi book."

The 32-page book will cost $3.49.
