Heroes, Talent, Stardust: June 9th Comic Reel Wrap


Oooh ... a teaser site has been launched with a grandiose Flash intro. This is also the image for the teaser poster, which is available over at Ain't It Cool News.


NBC has launched a first look website where you can catch a fur minute trailer of the upcoming superhero series.


According to Variety (subscription required) the Boom Studios book has been optioned by Universal Studios and Marc Platt Productions. Not bad for a comic that's not even a month old!


There's a whole lot more photos from the set of the Neil Gaiman adaptation at this Flickr page.


Speaking of photos, Superhero Hype has more from the Big Apple shoot, as does the New York Times.


Director Bryan Singer is quoted at Sci Fi Wire talking about the filming process. Fortunately, we shot [the film] with a Genesis camera, which is a digital system," Singer said. "So we have a much higher resolution. So it projects really well to IMAX. That's one benefit for IMAX. We're doing something else which is a little P.T. Barnum and a little funky. To the best of my knowledge it's still happening. I've been knee-deep in printing and mixing, but certain sequences will be in 3-D. The idea is that Clark takes off his glasses, and you put yours on. Not in every sequence, but in a few sequences. They have this amazing system at IMAX. I was extremely blown away when they took some of my 2-D material and '3-D-ified' it using their process. And it was astonishing. I don't know how they did it. It's complex, a lot of man-hours involved and obviously a lot of computers, but with that combined with offering them up some of our visual-effects-separated material they'll be able to create a different experience for some of the sequences."


Variety (subscription still required) caught up with directors Greg and Colin Strause to talk about their plans for working on the sequel. "We really want to take it back to the original 'Alien' and 'Predator' films and make a serious, gritty horror film," Colin Strause said. "We want to take it back to its roots, without losing sight of the human struggle," said Greg Strause. "That's what made the originals so good."


Director Tim Story has apparently discovered MySpace, and has a quick blog about what he has cooking for the next Richards family adventure.


Here's where you get in on the action. Did you see a link we didn't catch? Have you snuck into a closed movie set, and have inside data? Maybe your cousin is dating somebody who knows something, and they had to tell you?
