In an interview with Suicide Girls, director Joss Whedon talks about updating Princess Diana’s look. “We’re definitely have a nicer look than that,” Whedon said. “It will be the Wonder Woman silhouette, but the star spangled adult diapers are gone. Wonder Woman is going to have major special effects because she’s Wonder Woman. Joel and I are very much on the same page about how big this movie is and what kind of movie it is. I’m not worried about any conflict there. But with Joel, he wakes up and there’s conflict but it’s the good kind. The kind that makes good movies.”

Finally, James Marsden talked to Newsweek about working on “Superman Returns” and “X-Men 3.” Of his role in the former, he said, “[his character and Lois Lane] have a child together-and Superman comes back and sees the love of his life is moving on. That’s basically all I can say. They make you sign these lengthy confidentiality agreements.”

Zap2It has a feature about the upcoming reunion of actors John Schneider and Tom Wopat. “That was a great idea [to pair them up],” says Tom Welling, who plays Clark. “They were like two kids in a candy store, being together. You could tell that a lot of the old gags came up again.”
