DC Comics solicitations for July -- and much more!


Amanda Bynes is providing a guest-voice in the season finale of Fox's Family Guy.

The episode, "Long John Peter," is scheduled to air on Sunday, May 4.

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"Yo ho ho! Itıs a pirate's life for Peter when he gets a pet parrot. But after raising hell in Quahog and terrorizing the neighbors, Peter accidentally kills his beloved pet. Meanwhile, Chris goes with Brian to the vet and falls for the lovely intern Anna (Bynes)."

Bynes, 21, provided a voice in The Robots movie. Her other feature-film credits include Sydney White, Hairspary and She's The Man. She starred in 71 episodes of The WB's What I Like About You.

The Continuum has obtained a list of tentative titles for the remaining of the initial 13 episodes of Kids' WB!'s The Spectacular Spider-Man.

After two repeats next Saturday, the next new episode will be "Catalysts" on Saturday, April 26. The episode will introduce Green Goblin.

Here's how Sony describes the episode:

"On the night of the Midtown High Fall Formal, Peter Parker finds his overconfidence is nearly his undoing -- as both a teenager and a superhero. While his date, Mary Jane Watson, threatens to invert Midtown's social structure, Pete lets her popularity go to his head. So when the mysterious, murderous Green Goblin tries to force L. Thompson Lincoln (a.k.a. Tombstone) to step down as NYC's Big Man of crime, will Spider-Man take this new threat seriously enough -- or will he be so cocky he loses his big head?"

Future titles will include "Reaction," "The Uncertainty Principle," "Persona," "Group Therapy," "Intervention" and "Nature vs. Nurture."
