James L. Brooks, a writer and producer, said that the different between The Simpsons Movie and the television series is scale.

"We have one hundred speaking parts in the movie, and we created scenes we couldn't begin to draw for the series," Brooks said. "Most of all, we wanted a Simpsons movie to be a real moviegoing experience for the audience, while staying true to what we do with the show. We were wary of straying too far uptown."

"The film is a bigger experience than the show," director David Silverman said. "There's so much in the movie that fans havenšt experienced before with the show."

Eric Johnson isn't the only former comic-book show actor who will appear in Sci Fi Channel's Flash Gordon series.

Karen Cliche, who starred in the third season of the syndicated Mutant X television series, will play Baylin in the show, which premieres on August 10.

Johnson was a series regular on Smallville.

Cliche was part of a group publicity shot released by Sci Fi this week. The image, shown above, includes Jody Racicot as Dr. Hans Zarkhov, John Ralston as Ming, Gina Holden as Dale Arden, Anna Van Hoof as Princess Aura and Johnson as Flash Gordon.

The image to the right shows Ralston, Holden and Johnson.

Dynamite Entertainment announced on Wednesday that Alex Ross and Jim Krueger are making Superpowers their next comic-book project following a two-year run on DC Comics' Justice.

The project, described by Dynamite publisher Nick Barrucci as "being in development for the last three years," is scheduled for release at the end of 2007 and marks the return of a host of classic Golden Age heroes and villains.

"Superpowers will be unlike anything that Dynamite has done to date," Barrucci said "Not only in terms of the subject matter, but in terms of every approach we're taking with the series. After all, it's not everyday you get to work with Alex Ross. Although, I should throw in a tease that I'm living the dream of two lifetimes as this is just one of the projects we have cooking with Alex in 2007 and 2008!"

"I'm excited to work with so many classic comic icons," Ross said. "Dynamite's enthusiasm matches ours, and it's great working with them."

"Superpowers, for me, is a chance to do things with characters that don't have to live by the end of the series," Krueger said. "To a degree, this project is the best of two worlds -- the characters here are vital parts and icons in the history of heroes and comics. But at the same time, they can bleed, they can die, they don't have to remain the good guys. This project, both in story and in content, is about the freedom to be and create. Oh, and I get to work with Alex again."

Superpowers will feature covers and character designs by Alex Ross, who is also co-plotting the series with Dynamite and writer Jim Krueger. The image shown here is the first painted piece by Ross, and will be available through the booth at Comic-Con International in San Diego. A special preview comic of Superpowers will also be available at the booth.

Here's how the book is described:

"From the dawn of the 20th Century came a new chapter in mankind's history, unleashed during a time of great war and destruction.

"It was the beginning of the Age of the Superpowers, yet with the closing of the Second World War, this new spark seemingly flickered and died.

"Until now...

"Now the story can be told of the great lost Superpowers -- men and women with incredible abilities who changed the course of mankind forever...and who had been thought lost...

"Until now..."
