THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS

Remember that zany, apparently debunked rumor about Eddie Murphy playing the Riddler?  If you check out the Guardian, the person who started it stands by his alleged facts.  “The Sun’s Gordon Smart told me this morning that he was standing by his story on the basis that it had come from a reliable contact – one responsible in 2005 for revealing to the world the then-unlikely casting of Daniel Craig as 007.  ‘Everyone had a crack at us when we published that one,’ said Smart. ‘I was almost laughed out of conference that day, but it turned out to be spot on. I wish I had had a bet on it.’  Off the record, Smart revealed his precise source, and if we are to believe him, it would appear a pretty reliable one. It follows, then, that the rest of yesterday’s story might also be falsehood-free.  So, on that basis, prepare yourself for a Dark Knight sequel in 2010 (despite the fact that Nolan hasn’t even officially signed on yet for a third film) titled ‘Gotham,’ featuring Murphy, LaBeouf and Bale, with Rachel Weisz as Catwoman. Gird your loins, also, for a cliffhanger denouement in which Wayne Towers is hit by a blast which may or may not have offed the Batman.”

No official release date announced.

THE SPIRIT

Director Frank Miller was interviewed by Superhero Hype, drumming up interest in the Thursday release.  “It’s Tex Avery when it comes to the Octopus fighting The Spirit, which always was. I mean, their fights were preposterous,” Miller said. “They took more punishment than any human could possibly take. The rest of the movie is a romance, and I mean a romance in the old terms, which is when adventure and romance were one thing, like in ‘Robin Hood’ or ‘Zorro.’ I felt that Eisner’s work was specifically designed for adults, not for children, and wanted to bring the real life adult motive of the Sand Serif story.”

Mania.com also has some quotes from actor Dan Lauria, praising Miller’s knowledge of noir.  “I’m a thief. I mean, whenever I do anything I rob from an old actor that nobody remembers,” Lauria said. “So, I told Frank the last play I did I was doing Richard Conte. Nobody knew who he was. So he said, ‘Who are you doing in this movie?’ And I said, ‘Ah, you wouldn’t know him’ and he said, ‘No, try me out.’ and I says ‘Bart MacLane.’ He listed every Bart MacLane movie. I couldn’t do one bit without him telling me what movie I’d stolen from.”  

Starring Gabriel Macht, release date December 25, 2008.
