A rumor from IESB claims that Czech supermodel Karolina Isela Kurkova will play Courtney A. Kreiger, better known as Cover Girl, in the big screen adaptation.
Concept artist Daniel James Cox has a post on his blog about the delays in the production. He wrote, “It’s unfortunate, but the Writer’s strike has delayed further pre-production on the ‘Justice League’ movie (i was working on it as a concept artist/illustrator) until later in the year. As a comic fan, i’m happy because the script does need another rewrite. However, the art dept has been doing some amazing artwork, so the team and I will all assemble back at Fox Studios in June/July to pick up where we left off!”
Fight choreographer Richard Norton also posted on his website about the same topic. “Well, just received word that ‘Justice League of America’ movie has been pushed back until July,” Norton wrote, “which technically means I am unemployed, again! Hah, what a business I am in.”

MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE
If a He-Man related movie gets done, you can count on this deal (reported by Comics2Film) as the place it all started. “Mattel, Inc.

An extra has posted a new set report talking about how Dr. Manhattan was brought to life. “Cassandra Faust” wrote, “The rows of seats, the vintage cameras and monitors aimed at the spartan (no pun intended, Mr. Snyder) set with its two chairs in front of a large sign that read: FACE TO FACE WITH DR. MANHATTAN Ð it was perfect! And when the actors playing the reporters took their places amongst us, they were right in the spots they occupy in the novel. The scene was coming to life almost exactly as it had been drawn.”
HELLBOY 2: THE GOLDEN ARMY
Superhero Hype has an interview with actor Doug Jones, who discusses playing multiple roles in the sequel. ” I had no idea how much I was taking on,” Jones said. “‘Three characters? Sure, it’s for Guillermo.’ But Abe Sapien is much bigger and much better this time in this movie. He’s been an absolute treat for me to play this time. He’s written with so many different colors and levels and there’s a love interest, it’s such a yummy thing to chew on. And his buddy time with Hellboy is more concrete and his brother/sister time with Liz is even better. I’m written into almost every scene as Abe and then add to that these other two characters — I just don’t get a day off.”

It was rumored yesterday, but the official word went out from the WGA presidents noting the Saturday meetings of the guild memberships.

On the other side of the struggle, Deadline Hollywood Daily’s Nikki Finke posted this story of guild solidarity with other unions.
Vanity Fair has decided to show its support for the strikers by cancelling its legendary Oscar party, signaling that the publication’s editors don’t feel as optimistic as many other media mavens.
Finally, United Hollywood lists picket line activities for today, including a chance to picket with stars from “Battlestar Galactica,” “Painkiller Jane” and more.
