Civil War news -- and much more!!!


Jimmy Palmiotti brought a treat with him to MegaCon on Sunday.

For his panel on Sci Fi Channel's upcoming television series Painkiller Jane, based on the character created by Palmiotti and Joe Quesada, Palmiotti showed a just-completed trailer/sizzler reel for the show.

The clip was from the first episode and featured a fight scene in which Jane, played by Kristanna Loken, falls out a window, 46 stories to her apparent death. Some of the behind-the-scenes green screen and wire work needed for the fall were also shown.

Mark Steven Johnson, writer/director of the Ghost Rider movie, told The Continuum late Sunday he is delighted with the film's box-office numbers.

"Everyone at Sony is thrilled with opening weekend of Ghost Rider," Johnson told The Continuum. "We beat the record for President's Day weekend and look to be around the $50 million mark for the four days. We are opening at No. 1 around the world as well. It's also the largest opening for any Nicolas Cage movie, by a long shot."

According to estimates, Ghost Rider will finish with $51.5 million over the four days. The film seemed impervious to mainstream reviews, which have not been as kind as the box office for Ghost Rider.

"As expected, we were trounced by the critics, but the word of mouth on the film has been very good and gave us a bump up from Friday to Saturday, something uncommon for these kinds of flicks," Johnson said.

"As I've said in the past, this isn't a movie you make for critics. It's a movie you make for regular folks and fans of the comic. I couldn't be happier with how we're doing so far!"

The Smallville Season 5 trading card set has been released, and already Inkworks' Allan Caplan is making plans for a Season 6 collection.

At Inkworks' panel at MegaCon over the weekend, Caplan said Smallville Season 6 is scheduled for January.

"We've been supportive of Smallville back when they called it 'Dawson's Creek on steroids,'" Caplan said. "I like Smallville, and, to be quite honest, it gets better every year."

Smallville was one of several popular licenses Caplan touched upon during an informal presentation.
