Iron Man, The Dark Knight, Black Hole: February 21st Comic Reel Wrap

IRON MAN

German distributor Concorde has released five new images from the metal-minded Marvel movie for your amusement.

THE DARK KNIGHT

Dark Horizons is reporting that “the next trailer for the film, this one featuring more Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) and Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) is rumored to be premiering with ‘10,000 B.C.’ on March 7th.”

BLACK HOLE

Charles Burns’ graphic novel coming to the silver screen? Is that right, CBR News?

AKIRA

CBR News also has the inside scoop on Warner Brothers’ big plans for the Katsuhiro Otomo manga adaptation.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: NEW FRONTIER

Comics2Film has a feature about actor David Boreanaz taking on the role of Hal Jordan for the Darwyn Cooke-inspired animated film. “Hal’s an interesting character — having been part of the Korean War, he’s kind of damaged goods, but yet he’s striving to get back to being himself,” Boreanaz said. “I think Hal’s sense of a duality is fascinating — his holding onto his past, overcoming it, and being heroic with it. It’s about coming to an understanding of where your strengths are and where your weaknesses may be — and as an actor, to go into his dark place and work from there. I found that very appealing.”

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

The Scene talked to stunt double Kate Newman, who talked a little about what she did in the mutant-minded Marvel movie, including driving “an old two-wheel-drive ute along narrow gravel roads at about 80kmh.” “Every time you see that character in a car, that’s actually me,” Newman said. She also kissed Hugh Jackman’s double as part of her work.

THE SURROGATES

According to Comingsoon.net, the Bruce Willis-fueled graphic novel adaptation will debut November 20, 2009.

SHOOTING WAR

Comics2Film is reporting that “London based independent producer Power, is developing a brand new state-of-the-art TV series on the war on terror, the media and the rise of ‘citizen journalism’ after optioning the film and television rights for Anthony Lappe’s critically-acclaimed graphic novel.”

CONAN

An article at Reuters alleges that there’s trouble getting the Cimmerian back to the silver screen. “Conan Properties International, the creator and owner of the underlying rights to the ‘Conan the Barbarian’ films, is suing several parties, including Lionsgate, Edward R. Pressman Productions, Modern Times Group, and others, seeking a piece of net profits from the films.”

SPEED RACER

It’s not the movie, but you can glimpse footage from the new video game at Yahoo and extrapolate some ideas from there.

THE BOYS

Variety notes that Columbia Pictures has acquired the rights to the indie comic book and will develop a feature adaptation along with producer Neal H. Moritz and his Sony-based Original Film.

YOU’LL NEVER WORK IN THIS TOWN AGAIN

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, fresh comics reviews are online and [tagline due to return with new WGA drafts shortly].
