Ultimate Avengers, Aquaman, Luke Cage, Batman Begins 2: January 9th Comic Reel Wrap

ULTIMATE AVENGERS

You know you want it. Images from the direct-to-DVD release are available over at Toon Zone. Mmm, animated.

AQUAMAN

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Newcomer Will Toale has been tapped to play the title character in “Aquaman,” WB Network’s drama project based on the DC Comics character. With Toale on board, the Warner Bros. Television project, originally picked up with a put pilot commitment, has been ordered to pilot.

LUKE CAGE

Actor Tyrese Gibson looks like a front runner for the role, according to an interview with IESB. He told the site that he’s already met with Marvel’s Avi Arad, who seems happy with the actor’s involvement.

BATMAN BEGINS 2

In Friday’s USA Today, actor Adrien Brody has publicly said that he’s interested in the role of The Joker. “I watched BATMAN BEGINS,” said the actor when asked what movie he last watched. “I thought it was really cool. I would love to play The Joker. I think he would be deformed and creepier.”

X-MEN 3

Comics Continuum has an update from screenwriter Zak Penn, who said “The film is posting right now. Editors are editing. Effects guys are effecting. Sound mixers are mixing their sound. There won’t be too many mutants. You never know about a movie before it’s done, but it has a good chance of owning everyone’s collective ass.”

Also, Variety notes that British post-production house Cinesite has selected to work on the film.

Finally, Entertainment Weekly has an interview with actor Hugh Jackman about the Canucklehead-based spin-off and the next mutant-minded movie. “There’s a lot of things we really tried to get in 1 and 2 which — I don’t mean to be blunt — were just real expensive and we couldn’t get them in until 1 and 2 were so successful,” Jackman said. “So there’s some sequences there that the fans — if you go to that midnight screening on the first night, they’ll just be going ballistic. There’s some specific choreography, famous fighting moves, that we use in this movie that we haven’t been able to do before.”

V FOR VENDETTA

You can check out some high resolution stills from the production. He also talked about when principal photography would start.

SPIDER-MAN 3

IESB also has an exclusive interview with actor James Franco, who said he’s already done a script reading.

JUSTICE LEAGUE

The Continuum also has an update from animation guru Paul Dini about the upcoming Supergirl/LSH-centric episode, “Far From Home.” Dini, apparently, wrote the script from an outline from Dwayne McDuffie.

SMALLVILLE

Kryptonsite has the official network description of the series 100th episode, “Reckoning.”

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION

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].
