Some 'Scott Pilgrim' Things

So I went to the New York Comic Con this weekend. Ready to hear some things? I have so, so few things, but here's one of my few things: Superman apparently doesn't know what he's talking about. I asked Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O'Malley about the animated portions of the film adaptation Brandon Routh mentioned in an interview last week, and O'Malley claimed he'd heard that and was confused what the actor meant. The author went on to say he and Wright had talked about doing some stylistic things--like giving some flashback scenes the kind of crayon-drawn backgrounds seen the books--but weren't planning fully-animated portions. No animated, talking chipmunks or anything. Madness.

Second thing: O'Malley said Michael Cera has been working out to look less doughy for his lead part in the film. Good for him. We should do the same. Let's all try to get a little healthier this year, OK? No more anything that's enclosed cheese-based.

Third thing: Director Edgar Wright posted the above photo of Mary Elizabeth Winstead as key love interest Ramona Flowers. She's good at looking doe-eyed to the side while wearing fanciful nail polish, just like the character!

That's it.
