Smallville, Ultimate Avengers, Justice League, X-Men 3: January 17th Comic Reel Wrap

SMALLVILLE

Actor Tom Welling appeared at the Television Critics Association event in Pasadena, talking about the show and the 100th episode in particular. Who has all the data on it? Kryptonsite, of course. “I think from this episode on, this show is going to be very different from what it’s been in the past, and I also think we’re finally going to get to what I believe the audience wanted the show to be,” Welling said. “Everything up to this point has just been building.”

There’s also fresh spoilers for a post-Valentine’s episode called “Hypnotic,” which will feature the comeback of a character (no, it’s not Pete).

ULTIMATE AVENGERS

The official website has been updated with bios of Captain America, the Hulk, Thor and Iron Man. There’s also fresh screen shots in a freshly added image gallery.

JUSTICE LEAGUE

You can just smell the torrents warming up already — according to a message board post at Toon Zone, new episodes of the hit animated series will start airing on Canada’s YTV network on February 1st at 7PM. This is before they’re expected to view Stateside.

X-MEN 3

There’s quotes from actress Rebecca Romijn over at Sci Fi Wire, heaping praise on director Brett Ratner. “Bryan sort of quietly orchestrates how the scenes work,” Romijn said, “and Brett is very exuberant and over-the-top. A lot of energy. These movies are so interesting, because when you read computer graphics and special effects or fight scenes on the page, you never have any idea what it’s going to look like. So I’m going to be just as curious as everyone else to see the result.”

SUPERMAN RETURNS

Speaking of Sci Fi Wire, they have quotes from actor Brandon Routh about his performance as the Man of Steel. “Obviously it’s influenced by Chris’ performance,” Routh said. “We’re somewhat using that as a vague reference, so it has to follow somewhat that character a little bit. And beyond that, it’s within the writing. It’s within Clark’s relationship to Superman and what he needs. It’s ‘What is Clark to Superman? What purpose does Clark serve for Kal-El and for Superman?’ And that ranges depending on the situation, but he’s always a bit of a spy. He’s the guy that can find out information. … He finds out information about himself through how Lois feels about Superman. He’s always there. He’s the fly on the wall. I’ve seen and heard … how Bryan describes Clark and Superman, sometime it’s the spitting image of Chris, and sometimes it’s my own thing, and it’s hard for me to judge that. So I do my own thing, and it’s a character. Clark is also that kind of character that I’ve done before, whether it’s in acting class or plays in high school or just myself, getting into those situations, being nervous about things. So it’s all of that mixed together.”

Meanwhile, Latino Review has a new photo of Routh and director Bryan Singer on what looks like the Kent Farm set.

Finally, IESB has a video interview with Routh in both Windows Media and glorious QuickTime, and chats about some plot elements of the film that could be considered spoilerish.

BATMAN BEGINS

Keeping it with the World’s Finest, Cinescape has an interview with director Christopher Nolan about how the envisioned the DC adaptation. “I have always been a big fan of the character and am more of a moviegoer than a comic book guy,” said Nolan. “There is always something about the character of Batman that is very elemental. There is a great, powerful myth to the character and romantic element…that draws from a lot of literary sources.”

V FOR VENDETTA

Our pals at Latino Review also have a photo of what appears to be Hugo Weaving behind a Guy Fawkes mask … but really, who could tell if it wasn’t?

KEEPING IT REEL

Here’s where you get in on the action. Did you see a link we didn’t catch? Have you snuck into a closed movie set, and have inside data? Maybe your cousin is dating somebody who knows something, and they had to tell you? Whatever it is, we wanna know it all — fire off an email and let us know whether you want your name used or your contributions to geekdom to go down anonymously. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is novelist/reviewer/karaoke host/all-around lunatic Hannibal Tabu saying thanks for your time and indulgence, and [tagline sent back to development hell until something hipper can be dreamed up].
