Wizard World Texas news -- and much more!!!


Mark Steven Johnson, writer/director of the Ghost Rider movie, brought quite an eyeful with him to Wizard World Texas in Arlington, Tex., on Saturday afternoon.

Instead of just bringing a trailer, Johnson showed a nearly nine-minute action clip from the movie, scheduled for a Feb. 16 release.

"This is the first time people have seen this," Johnson told the crowd. "We haven't done any testing."

The segment takes place about an hour into the movie, and although Johnson said the special effects were not final, there was plenty of Ghost Rider on his Hellcycle on display.

Ghost Rider takes the motorcyle up to the top of an arch, into water and all the way up and down a building (as seen in the trailer). On a rooftop, Ghost Rider lassoes a pursuring helicopter with his chain and "persuades" the pilot to "leave me alone."

Another key element was a showdown with Abigor, one of Blackheart's elemental demons.

The segment ended with the painful transformation from Ghost Rider to Nicolas Cage's Johnny Blaze in a cemetery. He looks up to see Sam Elliott's Caretaker saying, "Morning, Bonehead."

Response was so positive that the segment was shown a second time.

After the panel, Johnson staged an impromptu signing of the posters and prints that were given out to attendees of the panel.

Look for complete coverage of the panel on Sunday here in The Continuum and a one-on-one interview with Johnson later next week.

Fox has released a promotional image from "Moe'N'A Lisa," the Sunday, Nov. 19 episode of The Simpsons.

The image shows, from left, authors Michael Chabon, Jonathan Franzen, Tom Wolfe and Gore Vidal.

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"When Homer forgets Moe's birthday, Moe's anger inspires Lisa to write about him for her school report. She finds a poetic side to Moe and helps him get published in "American Poetry Perspectives." However, when Moe is featured at a literary conference -- where he encounters celebrated authors Gore Vidal, Michael Chabon, Tom Wolfe and Jonathan Franzen, all guest-voicing as themselves -- he takes all the credit despite Lisa's feelings."
