"Death to the Flag, Long Live the South."

Jason Latour created a very special variant cover for this next issue of Southern Bastards, featuring the Confederate flag being torn apart by a dog. The cover also reads, “Death to the Flag, Long Live the South.” He and Jason Aaron are also currently working on a way to donate proceeds from the sale of the variant to the families of the victims in the Charleston shooting.

  • Actress Ariane Labed is now officially signed on for the Assassin’s Creed movie alongside Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. No word yet on whether Cotillard has improved her death scene acting. (via Deadline)
  • So, like, this next bit of news has us wiggin’. Apparently there’s a Clueless musical in the works, and here’s hoping it’s going to be totally fetch. Oh, uh… wait, sorry. Wrong movie. (via /Film)

Darren Wallace has got one hell of an imagination, because this mashup of Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Wizard of Oz is absolutely out of this world. List this one under “Things You Didn’t Know You Needed Until You Saw It,” because seriously, there’s something extra… special about a Cowardly Lion Thor.

  • We here at The Mary Sue are pretty gosh darn excited for the American Gods series that’s set to premiere on Starz. What’s even more exciting is that the author himself, Neil freakin’ Gaiman (not actually his middle name) is going to pen a few of the episodes. Aw yiss. (via Deadline)
  • And, as if you needed more Gaiman-related news, Joseph Gordon-Levitt alluded to some interesting points about Sandman in his most recent reddit AMA. Specifically, he said, “We are using a whole bunch of specifics straight from the comics, but of course, we’re also having to do a certain amount of invention, and in between that, there’s tons of re-appropriating, re-contextualizing, combining, consolidating, and all manner of things that literalists might not like.” Pay close attention, but be open-minded, folks. Okay? (via Comic Book Resources)

There’s so few things to see, and we have so much time to see them.

Wait, that doesn’t sound right.
