    April 17, 2008-Warren Spector officially confirms that a sequel to Zophyre is in the works. Springbok's games division had an auspicious year, with the release of that, the success of The Orange Box and Portal as a standalone, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare being Game of the Year, BioShock being praised for its story and setting, and expectation high for Half-Life 2: Episode Three, launching shortly.

    May 2, 2008-Iron Man opens to surprise acclaim as well as massive box office success, thus officially cementing Robert Downey, Jr. as in the midst of an incredible comeback, a credible superhero lead, and getting the Marvel Cinematic Universe off to a strong start. The success is particularly noticed by Disney, looking to expand with additional properties, especially while Star Wars continues on its screen hiatus.

    There is no planning yet for a Superman film, and certainly will not be until after Nolan's trilogy is finished. There is no cast, no crew and no script for a Superman film at this moment.

    Precisely. Just because Superman Returns never was made ITTL due to Bryan Singer's actions being discovered sooner, doesn't mean there will be a Superman movie out before Man of Steel.

    May 10, 2008-By now, it is clear that Senator Obama is the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, especially after his closest competitor, Hillary Clinton, conceded defeat. Notably, many of his speeches on the campaign trail focus on the growing crisis in the economy, especially the growing numbers of homeless and jobless Americans.

    May 13, 2008-Leonard Soloway confirms that Springbok's theatrical division is planning to do a stage transfer of the combined story of Dixie Dope and Americaca as a rock opera, with plans for a workshop sometime late in the year, a 2009 tryout in either Seattle or Berkeley, and hopefully landing on Broadway in 2010. Michael Mayer, director and librettist of Spring Awakening, is turning the combined albums into a stage book and directing the proposed production, starting with the workshop. In addition, Soloway announces that Springbok is looking towards a full scale revival of the stage presentation of The Who's Tommy, as well potentially bringing other related stories to stage transfers, namely a stage version of Quadrophenia and Pete Townshend's solo album Psychoderelict.

    May 15, 2008-New Line Cinema announces the production of Dumb and Dumber To, a sequel to the beloved 1994 comedy, though plot details and an expected release date are not yet forthcoming.

    May 21, 2008-Republican frontrunner Senator John McCain announces, in a total surprise move, that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will be his running mate. Palin is only early into her first gubernatorial term, and has not done anything of significance in the position.
