Captain America, Watchmen, Hellboy 2: May 7th Comic Reel Wrap

CAPTAIN AMERICA

It is wholly without corroboration, but Cinema Blend has a new rumor that actor Matthew McConaughey is in the running to play Steve Rogers.

WATCHMEN

A second video journal for the Zack Snyder-helmed adaptation is available at JoBlo.com.

HELLBOY 2: THE GOLDEN ARMY

CBR News has a feature article on actor Doug Jones and the many characters he brings to life.

SPEED RACER

CBR News also has a spotlight on actor Emile Hirsch, who plays the title role in the manga adaptation.

Producer Joel Silver talked to IGN about the film. Silver said, “Now I mean I like all kinds of movies, thrillers, action films, horror movies — I’ve always made those kind of films and enjoyed making those hard R films — but I had this thing for over 20 years and it was always meant to be a family-orientated movie and designed from a cartoon from the ’60s. I actually think that we’ve done the best version of the movie that could have ever been made, but that’s not to say that I’m now just going to make family films.”

SMALLVILLE

Get ready for some serious spoilers in an image gallery of production stills at Kryptonsite.

MARVEL SUPER HERO SQUAD

A story at Reuters says that Marvel Animation is producing 26 half-hour episodes of a new “super stylized” animated series aimed at 6- to 8-year-olds. It will feature such well-known heroes as Iron Man, Hulk, Wolverine, Thor, Fantastic Four and Captain America; all occupy a caricatured Super Hero City and are thrust into humorous adventures as they thwart the villainous plans of Doctor Doom, Magneto, Loki, the Abomination and others. This show is expected to be available for broadcast in 2009.

THE SPIRIT

According to Variety, the Will Eisner adaptation has been moved up from January 16, 2009 to December 25th, 2008. Lionsgate president of theatrical films Tom Ortenberg said the decision to shift the film to Christmas Day came after the project was presented to fans at New York Comic-Con.

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

The rumor from XMenFilms and on the Superhero Hype message boards is that Australian actor Tim Pocock will play a young Scott Summers in the spin off, which was then allegedly confirmed by Pocock’s agency Meissner Management.

WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN

While we’re speaking of the Canucklehead, CBR News has the trailer for the new animated series.

TRANSFORMERS 2

Speaking of Meissner Management, they’ve announced that actress Isabel Lucas has joined the cast of the sequel.

According to Entertainment Weekly, negotiations have broken down with actor Jonah Hill, who will now not play a sidekick role for actor Shia LeBeouf.

KICK-ASS

The Daily Mail reports that Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman have just completed a screenplay based on the Mark Millar/John Romita Jr. property.

THE DARK KNIGHT

Back to Cinema Blend, they have rumors and speculations on what will happen in the proposed third movie.

IRON MAN 2

Entertainment Weekly has interviews with Robert Downey, Jr. and Jon Favreau talking about War Machine and other sequel ideas. Downey said, “In The New York Post a couple days ago, [there was a cartoon] of Iron Man suited up, and he’s telling the governor even his super-powers can’t get him out of the budget problem. That was what Jon was hoping for and excited to see the most, the idea that Tony Stark and Iron Man can become part of the cultural fabric. When we heard posters were being defaced to promote political or social ideas, he just got such a hoot out of that.”

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?

We can’t do this without you. The rumors, the scoops, the set photos — they’re all fueled by passionate fans emailing in the goods. The ones who ask, “What do you mean your sister’s dating somebody who works for Warner Brothers?” The ones who know the code names of movie projects and scour city permit filings for them. The devoted, the involved. Fans, just like you. Whatever you know, we wanna know, and whether you want your name shouted to the web’s rafters or kept closer than a classified report, we’ve got you covered like a comforter. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu saying thank you for your time and indulgence, and “it’s not my fault! They told me they fixed it! I trusted them!”
