Plenty of spoilers out in the world this week, and again it's a topic of comics internet conversation, as it always is when Marvel has a major media-friendly release. I think at this point we all know we have to avoid the internet when we can't consume entertainment in near-real-time — though pre-release leaks in tv and film make that more and more difficult. It's getting more difficult in comics too, though as always, Rich throws up the big red stop sign when necessary.

A lot of people were upset, and that included people working on the show.
This week's print edition of Entertainment Weekly contains some interesting new images from Ridley Scott's forthcoming sci-fi Prometheus, so naturally they weren't going to remain just in print for long.

I've seen the scene portrayed in this still image a couple of times now – once at Big Screen, once at a presentation with co-writer and director Andrew Stanton a couple of weeks ago. In both cases it was the last scene shown. In both cases it was easily the least of the scenes shown.
