Comics Continuum talked to producer Dwayne McDuffie about the upcoming season finale. "It was a pleasure to be a part of the team on the series finale of JLU, in many ways the conclusion to a single grand continuity spanning Batman TAS, Superman TAS, Batman Beyond and depending on who you're arguing with, several other fine shows," McDuffie said. "As always, director Jaoquim Dos Santos brought the funk, delivering several classic action sequences -- wait for 'the punch,' after you've seen it, you'll know what I'm talking about. All of our major characters take a final bow and even Luthor still has a trick up his sleeve."
30 DAYS OF NIGHT
According to the Dominion Post, the Steve Niles adaptation "has become the latest big-budget Hollywood movie to be shot in New Zealand. Filming ... is expected to begin in Auckland in July. Auditions were held in Wellington yesterday [May 10]."

ICv2 is reporting that the film, now in limited release, expands to 130 screens this weekend.
According to Reuters, the Greg Grunberg-fueled superhero drama was picked up by NBC, but the network declined to note how many episodes were ordered, waiting for next week's "upfront" advertiser presentations to do so.

THAT'S A WRAP
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?
