Actor Kirk Jones talked to EURWeb about his approach to the character. "I feel that Blade has to be communicative. He has to be able to communicate with other characters," Jones said. "He's kind of closed, but he's half human as well, so he's kind of open. And from 'Blade 1,' '2' and '3,' what Wesley did is he kind of graduated it, and I guess we're picking up where that left off."
Meanwhile, Comics Continuum has an update on the second episode, with images and a network description which reads, "When Marcus keeps Krista from leaving the House of Chthon, she is forced to make her way out without the help of Blade of Shen. With Krista unavailable to him, Blade seeks proof of Marcus' vaccine through Revered Carlyle, a link to the Asher Community. Marcus explains the rules of all the houses to Krista."
According to CanMag, John Woo's take on the Masters of the Universe may never happen. Their scooper wrote, "Just got back from karate practice. A guy at my xxxx, xxxx, is a casting agent. He was doing some casting for John Woo's U.S arm last year -- something called 'Spy Hunter' and a film based on the 'He-Man' comics. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that -- well, he says -- those films are not getting up 'anytime soon,' because 1) the studio got cold feet on both 2) Woo has gone onto other projects."
MY SUPER EX-GIRLFRIEND
The official site for the superhero comedy has launched with some ... advice on how to properly end a relationship.
Cinescape has a scooper's report on the sequel's development. "Universal isn't really doing it. It's going to be done through Marvel (independently, or close too) and it's called 'Incredible Hulk.' Bana is definitely not doing it -- his contract was with Universal, and so on -- so they're going to get a new Hulk. They're not going to be auditioning, but merely 'going out' to names. Should've guessed. Apparently the following guys could be either in consideration or in talks for the role: Dominic Purcell, Brendan Fraser, Adam Garcia. Typical bunch of names, if you ask me."
FANTASTIC FOUR 2
Hollywood North Report extrapolates from other coverage to claim that the plot for the sequel will be lifted directly from the classic Stan and Jack story "The Coming of Galactus" from "Fantastic Four" issues #48-50.
GIVE ME LIBERTY, OR GIVE ME DEATH
As we have in years past, the Comic Reel will be taking the day off tomorrow in observance of the US holiday. Not that we'll be celebrating it -- plenty of other projects to work on -- but who doesn't love a day off? Anyhow, 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/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].
