A recent story at IESB claims that actor George Clooney may have replaced Mark Wahlberg as the front runner to play Duke in the Hasbro-themed project. The site wrote, "Rumor is that one of the reasons he walked away from Joe CarnahanÕs 'White Jazz' was not only due to scheduling conflicts but also because he is looking for a blockbuster to star in."
Meanwhile, Herosite has official network descriptions for three upcoming episodes -- "Four Months Ago" (the page's blurb line hasn't been updated to reflect the new data) "Cautionary Tales" and "Truth and Consequences" -- respectively.

Fan fave Guillermo del Toro is quoted at Sci Fi Wire talking about who he wants to usher the Vertigo character on to the silver screen: creator Neil Gaiman, who has never directed a film. "I think that if anyone knows that character, it's him," del Toro said. "And then, if we need to create a support structure, we will. I mean, there is without a doubt no one more qualified to tell that story than Neil Gaiman in my mind ... I think that Neil is a guy that thinks in terms of ideas and very concrete images. He's not an artist in the sense that he's not a draftsman, but he is the creator of that universe. ... I think there's a great advantage to not knowing how things should be done. People just go and make them happen, because they don't know that they are impossible. ... I prefer first-time mistakes than 10th-time mistakes. I think these guys are going to have first-time things that no one else is going to do. So hopefully it will happen."
