"Immortals" - Heroes, Titans and A Minotaur!

Before Henry Cavill will be seen as the new Superman on the big screen, he will appear as Greek hero Theseus in "Immortals" - a Universal/ Relativity Media movie directed by Tarsem Singh ("The Cell", "The Fall").

The movie will follow Theseus' endeavours to save humanity from the war-hungry King Hyperion. If one is familiar with the story of Theseus, it involves a labyrinth and a Minotaur!

"Immortals" is set for release in November 11 in 3D, and besides Cavill, it also stars other pretty people like Luke Evans (Robin Hood), Kellan Lutz (Twillight), Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) as well as veteran Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2).

At this weekend's Wondercon, a series of "Immortals" movie posters were released, including a gorgeous one of Henry Cavill as Theseus (see pic above!).

A trailer was also shown at the panel. Red Dot Diva hopes that it will officially be released next week so that she can have a peek on how the movie might look like! She hopes that it's not all just a lot of pretty fluff with not much ...erm... meat.

In addition to these news, indie publishing company Archaia announced that they will be releasing a prequel graphic novel in hardcover in September! There are a few top names in comics who are involved with this graphic novel - David Mack (Kabuki), Ron Marz (Witchblade), Dennis Calero (Dark Tower) and Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night) - just to name a few!

Red Dot Diva is actually a bit more excited about the graphic novel than the movie itself and she can't wait for it to be released so that she can get her hands on it!

Which one are you actually looking forward to? Movie or graphic novel?
