First Looks -- and much more!!!


Sony's official site for Spider-Man 3 has been revamped and updated with new imagery, including a good look at Harry Osborn as the New Goblin.

Spider-Man 3 director Sam Raimi said that Harry -- played again by James Franco -- donning Goblin gear shouldn't be a surprise.

"It's certainly something that has been set up in the first and the second pictures," he said. "This is more the conclusion of that."

In other Ghost Rider news:

* Ghost Rider star Nicolas Cage said he is "thrilled" with the special effects work done on the film.

"I thought Kevin Mack did a brilliant job and his whole team, because it could have been really goofy and instead it's gorgeous," Cage said. "I think what he did with the fire, which we all know is the hardest thing to create with digital effects, is excellent. Because itıs real and yet itıs more than real, itıs abstract and larger than life."

* The film's novelization, by Greg Cox, is now in stores, as are Hasbro's action figures.

* Ghost Rider is being featured in a humorous television commercial for Jackson Hewitt Tax Service.

* Look for more on Ghost Rider soon here in The Continuum.


Todd McFarlane Productions has announced creative changes ­ and a new book ­ for Image Comicsı Spawn.

Beginning with Spawn #166, artist Brian Haberlin will be joining writer David Hine.

"Issue 166 is the re-launch," Hine said. "Spawn has literally destroyed mankind and put it back together, but it soon becomes apparent that things are not quite right. It's just little things at first - the fact that whiskey tastes a little different, or that everything is more sharply defined.

"We're running with the questions raised by the science fiction concept of the matter transmitter. If you break a human being down into particles, zap them across the universe and put them back together, is it still the same person? As the story progresses, the cracks will really begin to show."

Haberlin had been working on a new series, Todd McFarlaneıs Dragons.

"Todd loved the pages -- or to quote him, 'These pages rock!' -- so much that when we decided to change Spawn's direction he wanted to put me on it, and let Dragons come out later as a mini-series," Haberlin said. "Well, when you get an offer like that, you just can't say no."

Previous Spawn artist Philip Tan will be moving to Spawn: Godslayer, TMP's first new monthly Spawn title in four years.

The book, written by Brian Holguin, follows the 64-page one-shot from last fall.

Here's how TMP describes the book:

"Godslayer is set in an epic fantasy world ruled by myriad gods. It tells the story of a warrior prince named Bairn, who is cursed to hunt down and slay the gods, one by one."

Jay Anacleto, who provided the art for the one-shot, will be doing covers for the series.
