Not in the Hallway!

  Yesterday has me a bit warn out.  My son had the flu which lead on through the night.  I am a bit groggy but he is feeling better and should be able to resume his normal routine tomorrow.

  Over the weekend we learned that Edward Norton is not going to be Bruce Banner/Hulk in the Avenger's movie.  I was really bummed about this.  I also didn't think that the statement from Marvel was very professional.  I have no doubt that it will still be a great story but I thought Norton did a fantastic job and its too bad that they couldn't work towards an agreement.

  Comic Con finally released the schedules for Saturday and Sunday.  There were so many events to read about that I cheated and searched for the three I am most excited about:

11:45-1:15 Warner Bros.: Green Lantern, Sucker Punch, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Warner Bros. showcases three eagerly awaited upcoming new films in this Hall H presentation!
Green Lantern-- Get a first look at the upcoming sci-fi action adventure Green Lantern, directed by Martin Campbell. Green Lantern is an epic adventure that crosses galaxies to bring to life the legendary Silver Age superhero Hal Jordan, who is chosen by the ring itself to become the first human member of the Green Lantern Corps and take on the vast and powerful Parallax as it threatens to destroy the world. The film stars Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, Blake Lively as Carol Ferris, Peter Sarsgaard as Dr. Hector Hammond, and Mark Strong as Sinestro
6:00-7:00 Marvel Studios: Thor and Captain America: The First AvengerProducer Kevin Feige and special guests give you an inside look at the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hall H 

  We should finally get a good long look at Thor as well as some of both Captain America and Green Lantern.  All movies I can't wait to see and that I fear will be less that amazing.

  The All Star Game is tomorrow but as a Cub fan, I don't have much to root for.  It's been a rough year, again, for my favorite team.  However, the game is about celebrating baseball for both players and fans.  This year I think there is even more to enjoy as we are beginning to see the effect of less players doping.  Baseball has seen overall lower scores and less home runs but the pitching has been fantastic and the games very exciting.  I might try and get tickets for next years game as it will be in near by Kansas City.  Let's hope the Cubs have greater participation the next time around.
