'Human Target' And 'Locke & Key' Reactions, Ninjak, And 'Powers' Casting In Today's Twitter Report

Fox broke some bads news to "Human Target" and "Locke and Key" fans this week, canceling this first show and passing on the latter. Along with the also-cancelled "Chicago Code," the programs left a pile of sad tweets in their wake.

On a more positive front, the "Powers" TV series still seems to be climbing its way toward reality, as Brian Michael Bendis teased Twitter about his casting tapes once again. This morning's rundown boasts that update, some Ninjak dismay from Kurt Busiek and more absolutely incredible Jim Lee artwork. Brace yourself and check it out after the jump.

I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for May 11, 2011.

Elisabeth Sladen Remembered, 'X-Men: First Class' Hopes, And 'Avengers' In Today's Twitter Report

"Doctor Who" fans tweeted en masse yesterday to commemorate actress Elisabeth Sladen, who passed away this week at the age of 63. Writers and artists both noted the impact she had on them as Sarah-Jane Smith in the series, and I've retweeted the likes of Edgar Wright, Paul Cornell and Pia Guerra, who all remembered Sladen fondly.

The feed brought speculation about what's to come in 2011 as well. Bryan Lee O'Malley got a little snarky about "X-Men: First Class," Robert Kirkman expects great things from "The Walking Dead" in Season 2. Find out why and what Brian Michael Bendis had to say to "Internet babies" down below.

I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is your Twitter Report for April 20, 2011.

'Absolute Justice' Premiere, A 'Thor' Cameo, And The End of 'Anders Loves Maria' In Today's Twitter Report

Geoff Johns' big night finally comes around this evening with the epic two-hour premiere of his "Smallville" story "Absolute Justice." He's got a special screening lined up, and you can check out who he's taking with him today in his tweet feed.

There was some truly momentous tweeting going on in the world of webcomics this morning as Rene Engström's cartoony relationship comic "Anders Loves Maria" came to an end, and it's worth checking out from the beginning. Much like LeVar Burton, you don't have to take my word for it, though. Bryan Lee O'Malley's a fan as well. You can find his contemplation of the comic's end, as well as Stan Lee's fears about his "Thor" cameo and Jason Aaron's plans for his Wolverine writing this year.

It's all in the Twitter Report for February 5, 2010.

@GeoffJohns0 Tomorrow I'm going to a screening at Warner Brothers of Absolute Justice.

That applies to the comic book industry as much as anywhere else, so I surveyed a wide range of creators in and around the comics scene to find out what has them most excited for 2010, and if they had any resolutions (comics-related or otherwise) for the coming year.

Their responses ranged from eager anticipation of buzz-friendly video games and movies to a distinct avoidance of anything with too much hype — so read on for the full breakdown of which projects and plans are foremost on creators' minds as we begin 2010.

MTV: Which comics, movies, games, music or any other types of projects arriving in 2010 are you looking forward to the most?
