There’s a lot of new info coming in from Xavier’s this weekend, starting off with this article on Yahoo! talking about how hard Hugh Jackman’s trainer worked him to get ready for this mutant minded movie. “When Hugh came in — he’s a pretty fit guy already — I stuck to my philosophy and did an assessment and asked him his goals,” said trainer Steve Ramsbottom.
There’s a huge image gallery which mixes old and new photos including a new one of Wolverine in action. Superhero Hype has a new update that also has some new photos of the cast (some of which aren’t in the aforementioned image gallery).
Staying in the vein of fresh images, Ain’t It Cool News has some menacing looks at Famke Janssen, and another set of photos showing Juggernaut and Colossus. Meanwhile Comics Continuum notes that Chris Claremont, who also wrote the novelization of the film, will have a non-speaking cameo role.
Superhero Hype has a first look at the second video blog from the Frank Miller adaptation, and a new image from the film as well.
In an article at Variety, the trade claims that “Topher Grace … [is] aboard as Venom.” So there you have it.
Actor James Franco was hyping both the web-spinning sequel and his current romance “Tristan and Isolde,” saying of “Spider-Man 3,” “People are expecting one thing and I think they’re gonna get something else,” he said. “And I don’t want to ruin that. But you can tell all the fans that this will exceed their expectations.”
Producer Al Gough told Comics Continuum that he and partner Miles Millar can handle both the new series and the existing tales of young Clark Kent with hard work. “It will be a challenge,” Gough said. “Thankfully, we’ve got a great team in place on ‘Smallville.’ We’ll still continue to run both shows, but we’ve got a terrific writing staff and a terrific production staff in Vancouver. It’s not like trying to create a show when you have a show that’s two years old. Smallville will be six years old, which like dog years, is like 42. I think we’ve got the team in place that ‘Smallville’ will continue to great. so that we can focus on getting Aquaman up to speed.” The show, he said, will not be called Aquaman, however, and they’re still “circling” on a title.
Gough also talked to TV Guide about Aquaman, bringing a certain Teen Titan to “Smallville,” and something about a possible death on the show this Thursday …
Keeping it all in the same “league,” Director Bryan Singer insists to Entertainment Weekly that the film just isn’t as expensive as people keep claiming. “I take enormous pride in being fiscally responsible,” Singer said, challenging the $250 million price tag. “That really pissed me off.”

Producer Don Murphy talked to IESB about the long awaited live action film in a video interview (Windows Media only).
