Heroes, Punisher: War Zone, Watchmen: December 3 Comic Reel

HEROES

Producer Greg Beeman has released a new installment of his blog discussing Monday night's episode, "The Eclipse, Part 2."

PUNISHER: WAR ZONE

Get ready for a spoiler-filled review of the requel right here at CBR.

The studio has also released an interactive comic book that includes a teaser for the film.

Starring Ray Stevenson, release date December 5, 2008.

WATCHMEN

How long will the film be? Producer Deborah Snyder is quoted at Sci Fi Wire saying that's still up in the air. "We're getting really close," Snyder said. "We're at two hours and 35 minutes." Director Zack Snyder said, "The movie's pretty long ... compared to 300, which was an hour and 58 minutes. The director's cut [of Watchmen] is about three hours and 10 minutes long. It has even more than the theatrical version as far as the detail that gets even closer to the graphic novel."

Release date: March 3, 2009.

MAGDALENA

Producer Gail Anne Hurd talked to Superhero Hype about bringing the religious-themed Top Cow property to the silver screen. "It's kind of like 'The Da Vinci Code' meets 'Wanted,'" Hurd said. "You've got the mythology and a character who isn't initially aware of her legacy which something I love. Many of my films deal with that. And it's still has supernatural elements."

Starring Jenna Dewan, no director attached, no release date announced.

THOR

According to IGN, "Grey's Anatomy" actor Kevin McKidd claims he's still in the running to play the Thunder God.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, release date July 16, 2010.

JUSTICE LEAGUE

Superhero Hype went about debunking yesterday's announcement, noting that there has been no rescinding of director George Miller's involvement with the project.
