The new trailer we saw last week at Marvel.com is now online at the official website and in high-definition QuickTime at Apple as well. CBR News has screen captures from the trailer for your convenience.
Apparently, there's an animated series in the works as well.
Screenwriters Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby talked to Film.com about what to expect. "Jon wanted it to be more fun," Fergus says. "He didn't want it to be 'Batman,' where he's skulking around, or Jason Bourne and all these angst-ridden heroes. So's [Tony Stark], but he's also a party animal, he's fun, and he deals with his issues by being extroverted, not staying at home, skulking in the mirror."
Finally, executive producer Peter Billingsley talked to Comingsoon.net about his involvement in bringing the Golden Avenger to the screen. "I'm an Executive Producer on the film and have been involved since the get," Billingsley said. "It was the next film that Jon moved onto, so I moved on with him, and it's been an incredible experience. The film's really good, and we're kind of in that stage now where the cut's just starting to lock up and we're doing tons of visual effects. There's over a thousand visual effects shots in the movie, and it's really really exciting."
Actor Andy Serkis told Empire Online that filming has begun. "It was on the 'Avatar' stage," Serkis told Empire, referring to James Cameron's long-anticipated all-CGI epic. "We had this incredible week. Cameron was there, Peter Jackson was there [who's directing one of the three 'Tintin' films], and Steven Spielberg was there [who's directing another]. All in the same room!"
WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN
Cyber Animation has the first extended trailer for the new animated series.
A symbiote spin-off? That's the word from IESB.
WGA STRIKE WATCH: DAY NINETY-TWO
The big rumor wandering around all weekend is that there's been a breakthrough in the negotiations reported at various media outlets, virtually word for word. Even Deadline Hollywood Daily's Nikki Finke has some version of the story, claiming progress is being made, and allegedly Fox head Peter Chernin went to the Super Bowl telling pals the strike is over.
However, there's still words of caution and even open skepticism about the reports, which are largely coming through major media outlets ... controlled or influenced by the AMPTP. Meanwhile, WGA members are being encouraged to keep picketing in force.
The side deals keep coming, though, this time including GreeneStreet Films, Killer Films, Open City Films, and This Is That corporation.
LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION
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 redacted until the WGA strike is resolved].
