Black Cat Spider Man Edge of Time Katee Sackhoff Voicing Black Cat in Spider Man: Edge of Time

Marvel.com editorial director Ryan Penagos has revealed that Katee Sackhoff will be voicing Black Cat in the upcoming Spider-Man: Edge of Time. Battlestar Galactica fans will remember Sackhoff as Kara ‘Starbuck’ Thrace. Males will notice that she’s a hottie.

Penagos also posted the first screen of Black Cat. The buxom cat burglar is Spider-Man’s sometimes nemesis and sometimes love interest.

While this post is partially an excuse to research photos of Katee Sackhoff, I’d love to hear what you think about her playing Black Cat in the next Spider-Mancontinued

Here’s a leaked trailer of the upcoming Spider-Man reboot starring Andrew Garfield. It’s most likely the trailer that was going to be used to dazzle the kids at Comic Con 2011. You can watch it now in all of its filmed-off-a-screen glory! The trailer was originally posted by We Got This Covered.

Please check it out when you have a chance and let me know what you think of that guy from the Facebook movie playing Spider-Man.

The official iOS app for Google+ plus has been approved (finally) and is now available on Apple iTunes. According to the official description it’s, “Compatible with iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 4. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.” It’s strange that the the iPod Touch isn’t listed as a compatible device, though I’m sure it will work on it as well (bsukenyan, care to give it a try?). I’m going to try it on my iPad 2, but I’m sure the resolution will bother me.

Epic Games’ vice president Mark Rein recently spoke with Game Network about a wide variety of topics. The section on mobile gaming was particularly interesting. As I noted in December 2009, Unreal Engine 3 on iOS was a huge step for smartphone gaming. Since then, Epic and Chair Entertainment have had one of the biggest iOS hits ever with Infinity Blade. It was interesting to hear what he had to say about iOS, Android, and PlayStation Vita gaming. Check it out:

iOS is certainly part of Epic’s future.

Over the weekend I watched the first two episodes of the new ThunderCats cartoon. It debuts on Cartoon Network on Friday July 29. I loved the original Rankin/Bass cartoon as a kid and was really happy with the new show. It’s a nice blend of classic ThunderCats elements with modern twists. I’ll have a full review of the show next week. For now, here are some random thoughts and factoids on the premiere.

The Dark Knight Rises Teaser Trailer: Batman vs. Bane!

Posted on July 18th, by raymond padilla in Movies. 3 comments

The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer debuted with the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and high quality versions are finally available online! It’s short and it’s subtle, but the ending is killer. I love how it closes with a seemingly unsure-of-himself Batman facing off against Bane. While he doesn’t exactly look like the Bane that dazzled me in the Knightfall storyline, he appears to be much closer to the real thing than that crap Bane from 1997′s Batman & Robin.

Any thoughts on the … continued
