Spinoff Online’s Katie Calautti has a “Skyfall” report, which features comments from Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson.
“Nobody told me that we couldn’t make an action film with a good story,” said Craig. “We always go back to [Ian] Fleming when we just sit and discuss. And if you look at the novels, he’s so conflicted … he’s a killer — he kills for a living. It’s a very kind of dark place he goes to.”

Mark Millar took to the Millarworld forums for an update on “Kick-Ass 2” production, with an emphasis on how cool the fight between Mother Russia and Hit Girl will be.
“I’m not kidding… this fight is unlike anything I’ve seen in cinema before. I’d watched the stunt team block it out a few weeks back, but this was astonishing,” Millar said in his post. “The movie is being edited as happens and so, at the halfway point in shooting, I have about 40 edited minutes to watch in the suite during lunch-breaks. Blown Away is an understatement. everything is working perfectly and Vaughn was correct when he told me to trust his judgement when he hand-picked Jeff Wadlow for this gig. This feels like the next chapter of something we all dug a great deal, incredibly consistent with what came before, but at the same time going a little darker and a lot bigger as Dave joins the team. You’ve hopefully all read the two sequel books (Hit-Girl and Kick-Ass 2) and if you haven’t you’re EXACTLY the kind of mofo I don’t mind spoiling.”
As an added bonus, Millar also teased there are three other Millarworld movies he’s helping to prep “for late Spring shoots.” Two will likely be announced in the next two weeks.

Speaking of Mark Millar, the creative consultant for all things Marvel at Fox recently had an interview with SFX Magazine (posted by ComicBook.com) where he spoke briefly about “Chronicle” director Josh Trank’s take on “Fantastic Four.”
“You can tell from ‘Chronicle’ that it was a new way of looking at superheroes, and I think he’s going to apply that same slightly skewed way of looking at heroes to the Fantastic Four, but do it in a way that feels incredibly reverential to the Kirby and Lee stuff,” Millar told SFX. “You’ve really got to get into the Kirby and Lee stuff to do it properly, to try and get that same sense of wonder. … I don’t think you could do Fantastic Four and try and make it grim and gritty.”

“I assure you, as Deadpool’s daddy that me, Tim Miller and [Mark Millar] have huddled on all things Deadpool. We will storm the castle!!” Liefeld Tweeted. “The single biggest blockade(blockhead?) is gone. Mr. Tom Rothman has been removed from Fox. Not a friend of Deadpool’s. … I’ve said it again, if the Deadpool test footage was seen, leaked, the Internet would freak and riots would ensue. Bloody PERFECT.”

Bloody Disgusting spoke with Selma Blair, who played Liz Sherman in the “Hellboy” films, about the possibility of returning for “Hellboy 3,” should the movie happen.
“It’s my dream to work with Guillermo del Toro again. I just want to be near him. I love him. I miss him. It’s my dream that one day when I’m done with the TV Show [Anger Management] they say, ‘ok the movie’s actually going to go!’ That would be the biggest heaven,” Blair told Bloody Disgusting. “I mean it’s all set up. ‘Hellboy 3â€² is the biggest payoff and the biggest horror. I want to see what these twins are up to, if one’s the devil and one’s an angel. I want to see what Hellboy and Liz are up to! I know the film is the apocalypse and the apocalypse isn’t cheap to shoot so we have to find some funding and get going with it!”
