Speaking of, with spoilers ahead, CBR News has a feature article about Geoff Johns bringing the 31st century to Kansas' strangest town.

Next episode, January 15th, "Legion."

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

Nobody's talking sequel yet. That's be preposterous. However, if they were talking sequel, what would it be? Actor/producer Hugh Jackman told IESB, "It would be a sequel to 'Origins.'" But should people rush to buy tickets? "We'll see how things turn out after May 3."

Directed by Gavin Hood, release date: May 1, 2009.

HEROES

Has creator Tim Kring gotten bored with the show's direction? Ain't It Cool News has some quotes that are less than complimentary. "I was primarily fascinated by the origin story. Once the original story is over, and the character has no more questions about what's happening or existential drama, then the questions become just about plot, and then it becomes harder for me personally to connect to." You can also forget about that Irish girl Peter abandoned in the future. Kring said, "No, we passed it. We leapfrogged it." He added that when the idea of returning to Caitlin was brought up, they asked, 'Really? Are we going to risk that? We have enough stuff to [deal with].'" How rude!

Kring also let some mild spoilers slip out in an article at Sci Fi Wire.

Also, despite (at presstime) not changing the page title, Herosite has the official network description for the December 8th episode, "Our Father."

Next episode, tonight: "The Eclipse, Part 1."

THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD

World's Finest has information about the plots for the next two episodes of the animated series.

Next episode: "Evil Under The Sea," December 5th, 2008.

INCREDIBLE HULK 2

Actor Tim Nelson told MTV that he's well prepared to get green and brainy no matter who smashes opposite him. "I feel Edward and I are well-suited for one another. It's really fun collaborating with him, and he made these characters [in 'Hulk' and 'Leaves of Grass'] better. I'm signed on to do 'Hulk 2' and '3' whether Edward's there or not, so it's not even up to me. When I agreed to do 'Hulk,' I signed off for two sequels, so it's a moot question. I certainly hope Edward is on the sequel -- but that's up to Marvel and Edward."

No release date announced.

OLDBOY

A story at Film School Rejects notes that the Steven Spielberg/Will Smith project will adapt comics by Garon Tsuchiya and Nobuaki Minegishi. "it's the original source material," Smith said. "There's the original comics of 'Oldboy' that they made the first film from. And that's what we're working from, not an adaptation of the film." said Smith."

No release date announced.

JONAH HEX

It's hard to tell if actor Josh Brolin was serious or not in quotes he left with MTV. "When I first read it I thought, 'Oh, my God. It's awful!' And then I had a moment a week later and I thought, 'Why is it awful?' Maybe the thing to do is to do the most awful movie I can find." What? "In the last couple months I've been going back and forth about it. I went back to my gut. Is it a sell out? What is it I like about this movie? It's so tongue in cheek. It's so ridiculous."

No release date announced.

IRON MAN 2

Screenwriter Justin Theroux spoke to UGO about developing the screenplay. "We've kind of got a first draft around," Theroux said. "You know what I mean? I just got back from London where I was working with Robert and Kevin Feige. He was out there. We were talking with Robert, who's out there doing 'Sherlock Holmes,' he was giving his input and his notes. We're sort of there. It's just sort of chugging along. The crews, I think, are now starting to see what they need to make, and the places that we might be going and all the rest within the story. That's sort of one of the more exciting times."
