THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
Cosmic Book News has some potentially spoiler-filled rumors regard Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character. One item I will repost is this: “[Gordon-Levitt’s character John] Blake is one of the more pro-active police officers who wants to fight Bane’s mercenaries.” Early rumors had the character siding with the masked villain. Meanwhile, the actor himself told Ohio State’s The Lantern that “Everyone (on set) is really excited about what we’re making ’cause everyone knows we’re making something good.” He adds, “We’re not just doing it for a paycheck, we’re not just punching the clock, everyone really cares about the movie, and that always makes it way more fun to do.”
Release date: July 20th, 2012
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN
According to Seeking Alpha (via Cosmic Book News), Disney has purchased the merchandise participation to the film. If you think this is the first step toward Disney reclaiming the character entirely, that doesn’t not look to be the case. Disney CEO Bob Iger went on to explain during a recent earnings call with investors that “we purchased Sony Pictures’ participation in Spider-Man merchandising, while at the same time, Sony Pictures purchased from us our participation in Spider-Man films.” This means the two entities get the full profits of distinct items. Sony gets your movie dollar while Disney gets your toy money.
Release date: May 28th, 2012
SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL
Co-star Amy Adams gushes praise at Henry Cavill while talking with the Washington Examiner. “He’s got this humility … I think that’s why he’s so great for the role. There’s this ease about him. He has this amazing effect on people. It’s fun to watch,” she says.

THE WALKING DEAD
Michael Rooker talks with The Los Angeles Times Hero Complex about the cult of Merle Dixon. “Nobody expected this level of Merle worship,” he says. “He’s such an out-there, crazy, anything goes kind of guy. There’s an uncertainty about Merle – like he’ll come back when you least expect it. He’s the boogeyman, and viewers love that suspense. The number one question I’m asked is, ‘When is your character coming back?'” Yeah, about that … when is Merle coming back? According to the Rook, “I can’t say when, but I promise it’ll be a wild ride.” From recent trailers, it could be next week.
I’m hoping to take it easy this weekend, lets see if the Fates will dole out a little relaxation.
