Smallville, Ant-Man, Tintin: August 28th Comic Reel

SMALLVILLE

How long will Lana Lang be able to stay away from her hometown? The speculation at Kryptonsite is that it could be 2009 at the earliest before we see Clark Kent's first love.

If you can stand the spoilers, Kryptonsite also has the official network description and promotional photos from the season premiere, "Odyssey," as well as a description of season eight.

ANT-MAN

What's happening with the Edgar Wright-led Marvel movie? He talked to IGN about it, saying, "I wrote the first draft of the script which, to be honest, kind of took two years to deliver because I did 'Hot Fuzz' in the middle of it. But I did my first draft of it just before the [writers'] strike last year and I think it's one of my favorite things I've ever written. It was a real blast to write. I know that [Marvel's] very pleased with what we've done and, really, really, the appeal to that for me is the fact that like, Ant-Man is considered slightly D-list. The whole raison d'etre of the piece for me and my thing has always been to take something that would seem to be uncool and make it really cool and that's certainly the case with British cops in 'Hot Fuzz.' To take the most seemingly kind of underwhelming concept and make something really cool out of it -- I always liked that premise."

TINTIN

Will the Peter Jackson collaboration be the next directing we see from Spielberg? IGN says yes.

TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES

CBR News talked to musician Shirley Manson and actress Summer Glau about their roles on the show.

MASTERMIND

According to Entertainment Weekly, actors Robert Downey Jr. and Tina Fey are in negotiations to voice characters in DreamWorks Animation's superhero sendup, which is based on a script from Alan Schoolcraft and Brent Simons and will be directed by Gary Trousdale.

TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN

There's Cybertronians in Long Beach, California, while this site has a set report about explosions and freeway excitement (and video too). A fan also shot some photos of filming from June at Edwards Air Force Base.

KICK-ASS

If you've read this week's issue, you'll get a much better sense of this character break down at Moviehole.

THE BOYS

A story in The Hollywood Reporter notes that Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay will adapt the Garth Ennis/Darick Robertson comic for the silver screen. Neal H. Moritz and his Columbia-based Original Films are producing the project.

I CAN'T WORK UNDER THESE CONDITIONS

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 Warner Brothers?" 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, we'll have fresh comics reviews online after 1PM today and The Hundred and Four wants to get pies from that "Pushing Daisies" promotion ...
