Harrison Ford recently revealed that he’s in talks for the proposed Blade Runner sequel. Although reports previously suggested that the upcoming follow-up wouldn’t concern itself with the adventures of Rick Deckard, the Raiders of the Lost Ark star told IGN that he’s discussing the project with director Ridley Scott. News regarding Harrison Ford and his involvement with the Blade Runner sequel is definitely good news for fans of the original flick. According to Worst Previews, producer Andrew Kosove said the new movie wouldn’t have anything to do with Deckard. “This movie [will not] have anything to do with Harrison Ford. This is a total reinvention and in my mind that means doing everything fresh, including casting,” Kosove recently explained. However, Harrison Ford insists that he’s recently had conversations with Ridley Scott about the sequel. Although this is far from a confirmation, it definitely contradicts what the producer was hoping to achieve with the next Blade Runner movie. “We’ve been chatting about it. I truly admire Ridley as a man and as a director and I would be very happy to engage again with him in the further telling of this story,” the actor said. One person who is definitely interested in helping out with the Blade Runner sequel is Katy Perry. The “Roar” singer recently told the folks at Metro that she hopes her turn in The Smurfs 2 will help her land the role of Rachel. “With films, I hope to win you all over with animation and then do other films. I am really interested in comedy, and I would really love to play Rachael in Blade Runner 2, if [director] Ridley [Scott] would just call,” Perry told the publication. The Inquisitr previously reported that Fantastic Four scribe Michael Green will tackle scripting duties on the follow-up. The writer previously helped out with director Martin Campell’s much-maligned Green Lantern movie. Are you a fan of Harrison Ford? What do you think about the actor possibly reprising his role as Deckard in Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner sequel? [Image via Warner Bros.

Usually when I read about stuff like this I'm more about the general model being broken -- the idea that a newspaper should operate to maximize profits, all other standards be damned -- than any specific permutation/outcome of that policy. I mean, it is fairly horrifying to think of a newspaper only serving rich customers, for instance, but we've had this near societal-wide rejection of any value other than bottom-line profit for years and years now, so I'm not sure what people thought would happen as this operating principle began to metastasize in our media. * finally, this is adorable.

Jack Kirby's opening splash features the ominously floating heads of the super-powered outcasts. Most of the pages struggle with panels too small and too frenetically paced. Ultimately, Kirby's

* Gene Phillips proposes to go through every Lee/Kirby Fantastic Four comic. That sounds like that would be fun to do. I think those are the best superhero comics. * Henry Chamberlain on RASL. J. Caleb Mozzocco on Pippi Fixes Everything. Jeffrey O. Gustafson on Ex Machina in two parts. Henry Chamberlain on Second Banana. Richard Bruton on Show Me The Map To Your Heart. Jayaprakash Satyamurthy on My Friend Dahmer. * Blake Bell and Dr. Michael Vassallo are in the midst of creating a series of 10 short videos in support of their new book about the secret history of Marvel Comics. * I wanted to point out this series of blog posts with "tips" for APE before we got so close to APE that the people that could use them were already on site and away from their computers. I've never done that show -- I was always too broke back in the Seattle days and these days it is for some odd reason extra-difficult to travel to San Francisco from where I am. I'll get there soon. * so I'm sorting my comics right now and I'm just beginning to wrap my mind around how many comics come out right now. Holy crap. And then today the new Jim Woodring showed up, and a sequel to that Scott C. book and like ten mini-comics, five or which look particularly interesting. We're all doomed. Well, I am, anyway. All apologies for not being as on top of reviews as I should be. * finally, the Wall Street Journal covers this week's New York Comic Con, although I'm not a subscriber and can't see the article. Looks like one of those "it's nearly as big as Comic-Con International" stories. I would imagine that one of these cons is going to pass Comic-Con International at some point because Comic-Con International is limited by the facility to a certain number of people. It does make me wonder how many Comic-Con could claim right now if there were no limitations on tickets.

Jessica Alba was on the receiving end of a security pat down at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday, and from the looks of it, those were not idle hands. In unrelated news, the Transportation Safety Administration has reported an unusual spike in security applicants over the weekend. As reported by The Daily Mail, Alba, the stunning star of Sin City, was seen being patted down by a female TSA agent at a security checkpoint at LAX and looking none too pleased about the process, from the looks of the photos. Or maybe, from the glare she’s fixed at the camera, it’s the fact that someone is photographing it for all the world to see (gallery linked here). From the looks of things, Jessica managed to skip the full body scanners, with their 3D imaging technology and the embarrassing prospect of a permanent security image of her on file somewhere. Oh… Known for her role as Sue Storm, the Invisible Woman from the Fantastic Four movies, it appears Jessica Alba was hoping she had some of those powers for real, which obviously include the ability to turn invisible but also to generate a force field around her body. Either one would have been a welcome addition to her charm and stunning good looks, it appears. Alba, whose latest movie, Machete Kills, hits theaters this weekend, reprises her role as Nancy Callahan in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. The film, written and directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, is slated for a late summer premiere in 2014, according to IMDB.com Brainy Quote has Jessica on the record as saying “I don’t like being the center of attention,” and it appears those words were never truer than this Sunday at LAX.

Fantastic Four Vol 1 #243 (June, 1982) The creatives at EliteFixtures have used their great digital manipulation skills to create mashups of popular comic books with lamps. Previously, we wrote about their mashup of popular movie posters with lamps. Charged with the power of electricity, they can brighten a room with a single bulb and dispel shadows from the darkest corners. There is nowhere to hide from the Power of the Light! Which got us thinking… what would happen to our favorite comic heroes in a face-to-lamp showdown?
