A scooper at Superhero Hype caught a glimpse of First Look footage of the film and lived to tell about it, saying “pretty much the entire trailer was cut in, [director Louis] Leterrier did a lot of talking about how he liked the fugitive aspect from the TV series (of which there were a few clips). Blonsky talked, said something to the effect that the Hulk was something really crazy… There was a shot of stunt men throwing around, Roth in cables on some falling platform. Ed running from a few new shots.”
However, we got an email (on Monday, so theoretically it’s not a prank, and sounds like other news we’ve heard) from a source that wished to remain anonymous, saying, “Apparently things aren’t going too well on the project. There have been five different cuts of the film and Edward Norton was removed from the editing bay last month and is threatening to refuse to do any publicity for the film. The main problem seems to be regarding the prologue of the film. It’s not really a sequel, but it’s not an origin story either so they cannot come up with an agreeable way on how to tell new audiences who Banner/Hulk is and why he is on the run from the military. One cool thing that he did say about the film is that at the very end Tony Stark appears and there is a scene about forming a new organization. That sure sounds like a setup for ‘The Avengers.'” Thanks for the scoop!
Producer Brian Peterson is quoted at Sci Fi Wire talking about season eight. “We’re always hopeful, and we always plan every year for a season finale, but it’s really great when we get to tell one more year of Clark’s story,” Peterson said. “It’s very early, and we really have to work in partnership with the studio, because right now we haven’t presented anything to them. The things I think I can hint at are the ‘Lois and Clark’ of it all. It’s really going to be a season about Lois [Erica Durance] and Clark [Tom Welling].” He also threatens a “new sidekick” for Lex.
ICv2 has scans and quotes from the Entertainment Weekly cover story on the movie, described as “…a family film alright, but a family film that has missed a couple doses of Ritalin. With a budget of $120 million, it’s bristling with enough trippy special effects — including nifty new focusing tricks and colors so insanely high-def they’re nearly 3-D — that even some grown-ups might find themselves mesmerized (or lapsing into seizures).”
THE DARK KNIGHT
Apparently, Harvey Dent’s website claims that there’s supposed to be a town meeting at 1PM today … maybe that means video? Hard to know. The Clown Travel Agency also lists an April 1st “departure date,” so there may be something going on there as well.
There are some other viral sites that have launched, including Trust Garcetti, DanaWorthington.com, Maiden Avenue Report, Gotham Cable News, Citizens for Batman, JosephCandoloro.com and Rossi’s Deli and Grill.
Superhero Hype got a surprise in the mail as a signatory to Harvey’s website, a burned campaign button foreshadowing what could happen to the candidate.
Composer Hans Zimmer talked to Bloomberg about working on the score for the Bat-sequel. “Zimmer … had already composed a two-note signature for the fiendish character, played by the late Heath Ledger. But he wanted to expand that sound to symbolize the Joker’s penchant for anarchy. ‘I’ve been sitting here all night trying to find out what else to do with those two notes,’ Zimmer said.
Mmm, new trailer at LiveVideo …
ALL FOOL’S DAY
We don’t do pranks here at the Comic Reel Wrap — the management frowns on it, because we’d have dreamed up some doozies. Instead, we have the Official Comic Reel Drinking Game, which can give you and your friends hours of fun and alcohol poisoning. Enjoy!
We can’t do this without you. The rumors, the scoops, the set photos — they’re all fueled by passionate fans emailing in the goods. The ones who ask, “What do you mean your sister’s dating somebody who works for Miles Millar?” The ones who know the code names of movie projects and scour city permit filings for them. The devoted, the involved. Fans, just like you. Whatever you know, we wanna know, and whether you want your name shouted to the web’s rafters or kept closer than a classified report, we’ve got you covered like a comforter. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu saying thank you for your time and indulgence, and [tagline due to return with new WGA drafts shortly].
