Magical comic characters are coming to the big and small screen, and it will be interesting to see how they are handled. Scarlet Witch is of course among the the new Avengers slated to appear in the upcoming sequel. Hopefully her powers will be clearly defined, as they can be a bit murky in the comics at times. Doctor Strange has found a director in Scott Derrickson, and we should hear about casting soon. On TV, I saw a trailer for Constantine that included Doctor Fate's helmet, so it seems that show will be a way to introduce more of the magical corners of the DCU. I'm a fan of all of these heroes on the printed page, and I hope their live action counterparts are just as enjoyable.
