OK, WonderCon was over the weekend, and ComicsContinuum got *lots* of info on movies, TV shows and of course comic books, so read on to catch the links and news from WonderCon...

COMICS:

"We3, a new mini-series written by Grant Morrison, was announced Sunday at the Vertigo panel at WonderCon. Here's how DC describes the mini-series, which has art by Frank Quitely: 'They are the ultimate cyborg assassins: a dog named Bandit, a cat named Tinker, and a rabbit named Pirate, armed with missiles, poison gas, state-of-the-art computer technology, rapid fire chain guns and unbreakable exo-skeletons.'"

The Vertigo panel also talked about the new Tim Hunter/Books of Magick mini-series written from a plot by Neil Gaiman. Also, Hellblazer's new story arc, which "looks at the lives Constantine might have lived."

TV:

*Huge* amount of info from the Justice League Unlimited panel, I don't know where to start. It's chock full of info on seasons three and four. The show *will* be going to half-hour format, which I have mixed feelings on. They are doing a version of the Alan Moore story, "For the Man Who Has Everything." Which is *awesome.* There will apparently be no Teen Titans/JLU crossover, which may or may not be for the best. And, oh, just go read the whole thing.

Alan Burnett talked about the new Batman cartoon coming this fall.

MOVIES:

Goran Visnjic has been signed for the new Elektra movie.

"Fantastic Four will begin production the first week of August, most likely in Vancouver. Casting for the film is currently ongoing and announcements should be coming in the next two weeks."

Tobey Maguire had some cool stuff to say about Sam Raimi in the Spider-man 2 panel. Also, Raimi is doing number three, so, cool.

OTHER:

Man, James O'Barr has really let himself go. I wonder if anyone asked him about the new movie!

On the other hand, Jim Steranko remains a huge rock star.
