IRON MAN 2

THE DARK KNIGHT
Comic Book Movie has a slew of new production stills from the Bat-sequel.
Meanwhile, actor Aaron Eckhart is quoted at Sci Fi Wire talking about the character of Harvey Dent. "I've seen all the [previous] 'Batmans,'" Eckhart said. "[Director Chris Nolan] comes at this with such a different take on Batman, I didn't feel that I had to be true to any other actor playing this role. Of course, I read the comic books. And I think Harvey is portrayed very well in those comic books: his relationships with Lt. Gordon [Gary Oldman], with Batman, with Gotham City, those really helped me the most."
Actor Adam Beach told MTV that a feature film on the property was in the works. "We just finished the animated movie and now we're going into the feature film movie [which should lens] hopefully in a couple years. We're about to set up meetings to develop a script and put it out there," Beach said. "I'll have to beef up, and be a good guy, and save the world!"
Watchmen Comic Movie caught a sneak peek of a teaser trailer for the new webisodes to promote the movie and presented a positive review.
IGN has a special feature on actor Tim Roth talking about being the Abomination. "What I like about the Abomination thing is he is really back there in the Hulk world," Roth said. "It was KGB, it was Cold War. And I think that translates perfectly to what we're going through now, just on a political level, and we're at war in the world. That's the sort of mindset of that character. So it seems to fit perfectly, and the whole thing of using human beings as weaponry seems very appropriate now. I think that's why it's worth getting it right. I think they did do it, they got it right this time. The character is a product of now as well."
Isn't there supposed to be a major Marvel character teased in the movie? It got cut, according to when director Louis Letterier told Collider that [SPOILER] there would be 70 minutes of deleted scenes on the DVD. "I'm not the kind of guy that likes to keep the stuff for myself," Letterier said. "I'm like, okay you student filmmakers, here's what I did right and here's what I did wrong and in some of the stuff, in the 70 minutes, there's some great stuff and there's some really horrible stuff, but you'll see it all, you know?"
