Incredible Hulk, Smallville, Transformers 2: January 21st Comic Reel Wrap

INCREDIBLE HULK

Actor William Hurt gave some huge spoilers to MTV about meeting with a certain shiny billionaire industrialist.

SMALLVILLE

Kryptonsite has some spoiler-filled production stills of yet another DCU character coming to play with Clark. The site also has the official network description of the episode in question (“Siren”) with its share of spoilers as well.

TRANSFORMERS 2

Strike or no strike, director Michael Bay is getting his sequel ready, or so he told Variety. “We knew from early on that the writers strike could get ugly, and this has got to bring a little sanity to the situation,” Bay said. “I can’t do the movie without my writers, but I have been prepping. I’m not in the guild, but I’ve been writing every day. This strike (is) insane, and a director’s responsibility is to the 50 crew members who depend on you for their livelihoods. We’ve got battle plans ready for the possibility of an actors strike. Somehow, you’ve got to keep the ball rolling.”

IRON MAN

More heavy metal — if you liked those “Hulk” spoilers, you should check out this page on Superhero Hype showing a shot of the toy for the Iron Monger.

WATCHMEN

The official website has been updated with director Zack Snyder’s storyboards discussing how he developed the film.

Watchmen Comic Movie also has a new report from an extra who took part in the filming.

TUROK: SON OF STONE

Ain’t It Cool News has an early review of the February 5th direct-to-DVD release.

JUSTICE LEAGUE

A Variety article has denials from the Australian government over claims their tax structures caused stress for the production. “We understand the postponement of filming is absolutely confined to creative issues and especially to delays in refining the script due to the writers’ strike,” says a spokeswoman for arts minister Peter Garrett.

Meanwhile, actress Megan Gale confirmed that she had been cast as Wonder Woman. “Even if the writers’ strike goes on forever, for me, the fact that I’ve been cast as Wonder Woman is enough,” Gale said.

WOLVERINE

Speaking of confirmations, actress Michelle Monaghan is quoted at Superhero Hype saying that she could be Silver Fox. “They’ve asked me to do it,” she said. “I really like Hugh Jackman and it’s a really, really great franchise and stuff. I think we’re going to have to work on dates and see if it conflicts. We’ll see.”

Y: THE LAST MAN

Actor Shia LeBeouf was interviewed by Comingsoon.net talking about the possibility of playing Yorick Brown for director DJ Caruso. “Yeah, we’ve been talking about it,” LeBeouf said. “‘Y: The Last Man’ is cool. I don’t know when I would do that though or how I would fit it in. It would be kind of ridiculous to keep doing the same deal over and over. ‘Y: The Last Man’ is kind of similar to some things. We’re both huge fans of that comic book.”

WGA STRIKE WATCH: DAY SEVENTY-EIGHT

The biggest news today is that the AMPTP has invited the WGA back to the negotiating table for informal talks.

This development, alongside last week’s DGA deal (which has writer/director Paul Haggis calling shenanigans and the WGA leadership is still analyzing the details of the deal struck by the directors) doesn’t mean the strike is over — even today, on the day that the nation celebrates the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (his actual birthday is January 15th), fans will picket with writers at NBC Studios in Burbank, while NBC’s head Jeff Zucker is looking at cancelling the upfront ad presentations that are the source of so much money for the network.

An interestingly slanted article at the Hollywood Reporter asks why the WGA isn’t making more of a deal about the late night hosts whose work appears much better prepared than improvised material might be.

THE CASTING COUCH

We can’t do this without you. The rumors, the scoops, the set photos — they’re all fueled by passionate fans emailing in the goods. The ones who ask, “What do you mean your sister’s dating somebody who works for Miles Millar?” The ones who know the code names of movie projects and scour city permit filings for them. The devoted, the involved. Fans, just like you. Whatever you know, we wanna know, and whether you want your name shouted to the web’s rafters or kept closer than a classified report, we’ve got you covered like a comforter. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu saying thank you for your time and indulgence, and [tagline redacted until the WGA strike is resolved].
