In response to the lawsuit filed in February by Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., Dynamit has filed what amounts to a blanket denial to accusations of trademark and copyright infringement and unfair competition involving its Lord of the Jungle and Warlord of Mars comics.

ERB Inc., which holds the existing rights to the works of the author of Tarzan and John Carter of Mars, claims the comics Lord of the Jungle, Warlord of Mars, Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris and Warlord of Mars: Fall of Barsoom are likely to “deceive, mislead and confuse the public” about the source or sponsorship of the content, causing “irreparable injury” to the family-owned company.

We finally know when work will begin on a sequel to X-Men First Class—but thanks to the success of The Hunger Games, it’s apparently going to take a bit longer than we’d hoped.

Actress Jennifer Lawrence, who stars as Katniss in The Hunger Games, has quickly become a bona fide star in the wake of the film’s box office bonanza. So big, in fact, that she won’t be available to shoot that X-Men: First Class sequel until January 2013. ->
