SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL
As if Superman wasn’t already the perfect guy, this photo from Just Jared reveals that he also likes to cook:
Actually, I imagine we’re in for some sort of “Clark as investigative reporter” montage. Superman would be a kick-ass health inspector.
Directed by Zack Snyder, release date: June 14th 2013
Aaron Eckhart offers Comingsoon.net a few words about his upcoming turn as the Frankenstein creature. “Whenever you read a script that you want to do, you start feeling yourself in that character. All of a sudden your juices start flowing. That’s how you know you should do a movie. Now I’m gonna be Frankenstein and I’m kind of worried about it, actually. I’ve gotta go and figure out how the hell I’m gonna play Frankenstein,” he says. The actor is also taking another look at Mary Shelly’s original novel, which is always a good place to start.
Release date: February 23rd, 2013
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
The lads at Comic Book Movie spotted another video of Gotham PD chasing the Batman:
Release date: July 20th, 2012
THE LONE RANGER
Deadline reports the film will start shooting February 6th of next year. I guess that means the December 2012 release date is shot to hell, right? While a new release date is yet to be announced, the site is pretty much convinced the lackluster performance of “Cowboys & Aliens” nearly sank this project because Westerns don’t do “strong business overseas.”
Release date: December 21st, 2012?

THE WALKING DEAD
The Hollywood Reporter has a slideshow from the set of the series, including this photo of Glenn, as played by Steven Yuen:
Creator Robert Kirkman tells THR that Glenn’s relationship with Maggie will transfer from the comics to television. “It’s not going to be simple, it’s going to be complicated by some things that clearly are not in the comic book,” he says. “What I love is the fact that as a viewer you get to see that as long as love remains, as long as there is a possibility of that, hope remains, hope is still present, there is a reason to continue.”
Premieres: October 16th, 2011
CHUD reports that director Shane Carruth is finally prepping his follow-up to 2004’s “Primer.” If you haven’t seen it, drop everything right now and watch it! His new film, “Upstream Color,” will shoot later this year. It is described as a “romance/drama/thriller.” I couldn’t be happier to see him return to moviemaking as “Primer” is a trully great film. Also, I am in New York as part of CBR’s coverage of NYCC, so feel free to follow me at @futurethreat or look me up on the Google+ as I’ll be updating those feeds.
