A few things...

College basketball has been keeping me busy of late so my apologies for not posting much lately. I still need to make my preseason baseball predictions--which is being done earlier than usual, no thanks to Major League Baseball. Those should be up tomorrow at the absolute latest.

This comes via Stand With Us:
Local Organizations Promote Israeli Goods to Counter Boycott
Tomorrow, Wednesday March 30th is Buy Israeli Goods (BIG) Day! The date was chosen because the anti-Israel boycott campaign has planned a global boycott of Israeli products for the same day (March 30). Protesters will stand outside stores, asking shoppers not to buy Israeli products. March 30th is our day to show the boycotters that their efforts are doomed. If we work together, we can help Israel. TOMORROW, go shopping for Israel no matter where you live. Buy for Israel. Buy for peace. Be a big part of this BIG (Buy Israeli Goods) Day
According to Hero Complex, DC is finally getting their shit together when it comes to bringing their talent together for the Justice League movie. It's about time because Marvel is kicking their asses on the big screen. Here is this tidbit on the project:
Jeff Robinov is already thinking about DC Comics movies for 2013 and beyond, and he’s got “Justice League” and a reinvented Batman on his mind.[...]

But Robinov said a new Justice League script is in the works. Also being written for Warner are scripts featuring the Flash and Wonder Woman, who could be spun off into their own movies after Justice League. Though Wonder Woman is also in the works as a television pilot for NBC produced by Warner, Robinov dismissed that as a sticking point. “Wonder Woman could be a film as well, the same way that ‘Superman Returns’ came out while ‘Smallville’ was on,” he said, referring to the 2006 film that put Brandon Routh in the cape and the television show starring Tom Welling that is now in its 10th and final season.

Robinov knows that the most bankable part of his superhero empire has been Nolan and his Gotham City films – the studio has yet to deliver a 21st century superhero blockbuster hit without Nolan in the director’s seat. Batman will continue to be a centerpiece property beyond next year’s “The Dark Knight Rises” and Nolan’s departure from the franchise. “We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman...Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”
It is very nice to know that the Nolans will stay involved with the Batman saga even if he isn't directing.
