  Most Coincidental Timing Ever
Marvel's March solicits are up.  Graeme has already beat me to mocking the project that most needed mocking, but this is pretty cringe-inducing as well:
ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #54 & 55

Written by Brian Michael Bendis
Covers & Pencils by Mark Bagley

“Spider-Man: The Movie” Parts 1 & 2 (of 5)
A major movie studio is making an unauthorized summer blockbuster about Spider-Man, and the Ultimate wall-crawler swings by the set to give the producers a piece of his mind. But someone else is even hotter about being in the film than Spidey — Doctor Octopus — who just may shut the production down if he doesn’t get final edit!

Marvel:  We will attempt to ride the coattails of mainstream celebrities in any way we can.  Jesus.  Just when I thought Marvel couldn't get any more desperate with its endless Spider-Man 2-related tie-ins for the Spider-books.  Let's hope the story is as classy and entertaining as that backup feature "guest-starring" Jay Leno.
