Yeah, that's pretty fantastic. And I always hated TLC.
The Resident Evil movies have been reasonably successful. Not exactly superhero genre, but female carried and sci fi, so sorta close.
If that was the intent, it failed miserably, at least for me. [[SPOILER]]
Well... it is Disney, so that would be totally the kind of move I'd expect. Though to be fair, he could hardly be as awful as Hayden Christensen was.
Damn, he seems shorter. Maybe he's six feet like Allen Iverson was 6'1" and Charles Barkley was 6'9"...
Bomer seems too short to be Batman. I like Karl Urban for the role, but I doubt they'll go that way.

So the truth may be that B&N put up pre-order info that had no relation to anything Martin or Bantam Spectra actually told them.

I think he doesn't want to do it any more, and hasn't had his heart in it for some time. He started these books 20 years ago and I suspect if the show didn't turn into a runaway train of fame and money, he wouldn't crank out the next book for a decade, if ever. I think what's going to disappoint me the most will be when the show...
