at #9 for the year. I'll probably comes to my senses later. We'll see. Anyway, this weeks links are after the jump.
Captain America Dog
In the words of Stan Lee, "Nuff said." This comes from Fanboy.com and even though I'm generally opposed to animal costuming, this is awesome. Plus, you know he loves to play with the shield.
Second Marvel short online
Marvel's second short film, "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer," is supposed to bridge the gap between the films, but all it really does is show S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson kick some ass. Not that I'm complaining, but all it really does is set up so that we won't be surprised when he lays the beat down on Loki in The Avengers. Watch the video at io9 or /Film.
The Dark Knight Rises may preview with Mission Imposssible
/Film is reporting that an 8 minutes prologue of the The Dark Knight Rises will show before Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol on IMAX screens. If this is true, I'll almost definitely be heading out to see Ghost Protocol in IMAX, especially since it's opening in IMAX a week early. Of course this doesn't mean TDKR is finished filming, as these rumors suggest Batman might be heading to Occupy Wall Street.
The Punisher getting a TV show?
This story suggests that Frank Castle AKA The Punisher AKA The most R-rated Marvel hero I can think of, is getting a police procedural TV show. The only way I can see this working is if FOX draws heavily from Dexter, and by heavily, I mean really heavily. More here from io9.
io9 points out that this semi-embarrassing fact about TVs most expensive show, thanks to HD and print screen, but I really don't care. Nerf guns are fairly awesome in themselves, and the show also features dinosaurs. Even the dinosaur with the most powerful tail ever.
