Just forget the words and sing along

I miss my computer already...especially Firefox. Darn my parents' loyalty to Internet Explorer!

Anyway, there's some movie news I've been wanting to report on for a while now. As we all know, superhero movies are big, so it was just a matter of time before we started getting a slew of superhero spoofs and superhero comedies. Here's some of the notable ones:

Super Ex - So, a man dumps his girlfriend. Nothing new there, but it just so happens that his ex-girlfriend is a supehero, and she begins using her powers to harrass the hell out of her ex. Owen Wilson plays the man, Uma Thurman is the superpowered ex-girlfriend, and it's being directed by Ivan Reitman, he who gave us the classic Ghostbusters. Here's hoping it's another Ghostbusters and not Evolution.

Sidekick vs. Henchman - Only the script has surfaced, so we don't know anything about stars or directors yet. The premise: a superhero and a supervillain, mortal enemies, kill each other in combat. This leaves the hero's sidekick and the villain's henchman to pursue solo careers and continue the battle of good vs. evil.

Ant-Man - Yes, this classic Marvel character is getting his own movie, and it'll be a comedy. Marvel has begun negotiations with Edgar Wright, writer/director of the British horror comedy Shaun of the Dead to write and direct.
