Fantastic Four, Smallville, Heroes, Transformers: October 2nd Comic Reel Wrap

FANTASTIC FOUR

Take a gander at the titles and log lines for every episode this season, courtesy of Toon Zone.

Meanwhile, the Fox chairman Tom Rothman telling IESB, “Look, I don’t want to give away too much, right, but I will say this, Galactus will appear and fans will not be disappointed.”

Finally, actor Doug Jones talked to The Doug Jones Experience about being Norrin Radd. “I am thrilled out of my mind,” Jones said. “It has been so difficult for me to sit on this developing news, with all the casting speculation happening on the web. As my research into this character continues, I am falling more and more in love with him … his valiance, his nobility, his stance for truth, hope, faith, and his history of self-sacrifice. So I fully understand why his fans are talking so much about his introduction appearance in this sequel, and why they would be concerned with who plays him.”

SMALLVILLE

Kryptonsite opens up today’s battle of the fansites with screen captures of the new opening sequence and from the trailer for next week’s episode, “Sneeze,” as well as the network description of upcoming episode “Arrow.” Did you really think Devoted to Smallville would take that lying down? Heck no — they’ve got Windows Media versions of the two trailers for “Sneeze” and an MP3 of a new radio ad featuring three of the show’s characters. Finally, the network gets the final say, because if you check their video hub you can see Clark’s new power.

HEROES

Right here at CBR, we’ve got the details on a set visit with actor Greg Grunberg.

TRANSFORMERS

USA Today’s Pop Candy has an interview with Optimus Prime voice actor Peter Cullen.

THE DARK KNIGHT

The Movie Blog has more quotes from actor Heath Ledger about what to expect from his depiction of the Clown Prince of Crime. “When I was contacted, I was not super keen on the idea,” Ledger said, “but after learning about the things they wanted to do I became very interested in the Joker. It’s an actor’s dream to play an icon role and the joker is so far removed from anything I’ve done yet that I am looking forward to it and to the ideas that were presented to me. I receive character data from the writers on almost a weekly basis, my fax is loaded with profiles on the Joker to give me an idea of what they are gonna do, I’ve also been given some of the comic book material to look over and I just become more interested as it develops, to play a villain one must throw it all out the window, and i have not yet really explored that kind of dark side, which makes me enthusiastic to play him. This role, I am told, will be like watching a car wreck that wont stop, and from the script pieces I’ve been sent on my character’s angles, it just gets deeper and deeper. This guy is a shark, a fearless shark and I know I can bring that alive.”

GHOST RIDER

Time for a new entry in the video blog, discussing the evolution of the character.

300

Sci Fi Wire has a behind the scenes video featuring discussions of the more fantastic elements of the film.

SPIDER-MAN 3

Superhero Hype has some words from actress Kirsten Dunst on bringing back Mary Jane, and having a gal pal on the set. “It’s so funny. Everyone asks me that like it’s a competitive thing, but Bryce and I got along better than anybody. I was happy to have another girl to share all of that testosterone with. It was nice to come to set and have a girl to hang out with. Her character adds another type of woman that puts Peter in a position obviously with conflict with me and lying and this and all of those things just create more drama in our relationships.”

HELLBOY: SWORD OF STORMS

The official description of the animated feature, which premieres on October 28th, is shown at Comics Continuum: “When a university professor opens a forbidden scroll, he is possessed by the twin demons of thunder and lightning who seek to return to our world to wake their brothers, the dragons. Hellboy, along with two researchers and an albino psychic, travels to Japan to investigate. There he finds the sword of storms, the only weapon that can defeat the demons, and is transported to a world where he encounters several creatures of Japanese folklore.”

BLADE

Tales of the Daywalker’s demise have not been exaggerated — Sci Fi Wire has gotten confirmation from Spike TV that the original series has been cancelled and that a DVD is planned but no dates have been released.

HOLLYWOOD SWINGIN’

Here’s where you get in on the action. Did you see a link we didn’t catch? Have you snuck into a closed movie set, and have inside data? Maybe your cousin is dating somebody who knows something, and they had to tell you? Whatever it is, we wanna know it all — fire off an email and let us know whether you want your name used or your contributions to geekdom to go down anonymously. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is novelist/karaoke host/all-around lunatic Hannibal Tabu saying thanks for your time and indulgence, and [tagline sent back to development hell until something hipper can be dreamed up].
