The professor will be holding court on the Queen Mary? According to his official web site, actor James Marsters will be hosting "James Marsters and Friends," an event which will feature show creators Al Gough, Miles Millar, casting director Dee Dee Bradley and writer Steve DeKnight, plus other notables. Expect some brand of spoilerage to emerge from this event.
The sixth video journal from the production is now online at Moviefone, while Comingsoon.net claims that the MPAA has rated the film R (for graphic battle sequences throughout, some sexuality and nudity).

FANTASTIC FOUR 2
Writer Don Payne is quoted at Sci Fi Wire confirming some details about Galen and Norrin's Excellent Adventure. "That's the worst-kept secret in town," Payne said. "The Silver Surfer will be in it. The Fantasticar will be in it. We're just trying to make it more exciting and funnier, and, you know, we're trying to top the first one. I think people know the characters now. They know the tone a little bit better. Origin stories are always hard to get off the ground, and we're going to be up and running. I think the one thing I really want to do is make Reed Richards, that character, smarter and tougher. He's the leader. I think Ioan did a great job [in the first film], but I think he could have had more stuff to play as the leader. Reed Richards has his nerdy side, but he ultimately has to make some tough choices."
AMAZING SCREW-ON HEAD

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? Maybe your cousin is dating somebody who knows something, and they had to tell you? Whatever it is, we wanna know it all -- fire off an email and let us know whether you want your name used or your contributions to geekdom to go down anonymously.
