For starters Alan Moore’s “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” is coming to Fox television. The graphic novel series has already been adapted into a terrible movie starring Sean Connery as Alan Quartermain. But Moore has famously hated any adaptations of his work, including “V for Vendetta” and “Watchmen”. Well he’s not likely to change his mind now because “Green Lantern” writer Michael Green will serve as writer and show runner.

In other comic book movie news, Vin Diesel (“Fast and Furious 6”) confirms he met with Marvel Studios about an unknown project:

“Marvel meeting today, Diesel writes. “Only the people in the room can tell you what was discussed…P.s. Thanks to Our page, for pushing to make it happen… you know I get tunnel vision with my work… and after that meeting today… wow!”

He also posted a photo of him in front of an Avengers comic cover featuring Giant Man. But he also once posted a photo of Vision, which me managed to include in this post. Could he join Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers 2”?
