Countingdown.com notes that director Guillermo del Toro has returned to the web, answering fan questions. Due to his schedule, he now only promises bi-weekly updates. He claims the Hellboy sets are the largest he’s ever worked with, he likes the Mignola-inspired animated short making the rounds on the ‘net (looking for that style in any animated spinoffs) and Mignola himself will be providing art for either the DVD or as an exclusive for the Web site.
Comics Continuum visited the set of “The Punisher” and posted a report about their visit. Also on the same page, they note that Gail Anne Hurd, producer of “The Hulk,” notes they are moving forward with a sequel to the Hulk.
Finally, CBR has received a new photo of Thomas Jane as the Punisher, which we’re happy to share with you. Click the image to enlarge.
BATMAN: MYSTERY OF THE BATWOMAN
Los Angeles-area Bat fans are in for a treat. Toon Zone reports that Warner Brothers is hosting a special theatrical screening of a new direct-to-video feature film at the Arc Light in Hollywood, Tuesday October 14th at 7PM. We strongly recommend showing up at least seventy minutes early, as these things do tend to fill up and have die-hards there ahead of schedule.
X2: X-MEN UNITED
Paul Cooke writes in with a correction — the art we noted yesterday is for Region 4 DVDs, which will end up down under in Australia. Apologies for the mix-up, I’m still new here …
Sweet crusted gift of the gods, it’s good to have news, but you can help keep the fanboy juices flowing. If you have the scoop on anything related to comic book movies, TV adaptations or just want to give us a truck full of cash, no questions asked, drop us a line and let’s coordinate. You can choose an alias if you’d like, or be mentioned by name — we honor requests for anonymity. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu saying thanks for your time and indulgence, and (insert pithy sign-off here, once it gets out of development hell).
