Actress Laura Vandervoort gave an interview to AOL, discussing her love for the role. "They've had me in a harness and I'm doing a lot of the flying on green screen," Vandervoort said. "I've done all my own stunts so far. It's cool. Sometimes they're like, 'Uh ... ' But I'm like, 'I can do it!' If it is dangerous I have a stunt girl who is great."
Sticking with the small screen, this week's Behind the Eclipse feature here at CBR addresses what the strike means for the show.
Superhero Hype has a prepared statement from Hasbro about exactly what to expect from the movie. "This movie will be a modern telling of the 'G.I. Joe vs. Cobra' storyline and its compelling characters that Hasbro created 25 years ago. The G.I. Joe team will not be based in Brussels. Instead, they will be based out of the 'Pit' as they were throughout the 1980s comic book series. And, in keeping with the G.I. Joe vs. Cobra fantasy, the movie will feature characters and locations from around the world. Duke, the lead character and head of the G.I. Joe team, will embody the values of bravery and heroism that the first generation of G.I. Joe figures established."

Fire up your funk-o-tron -- this week's CBR column from Rich Johnston has concept art for a proposed cartoon based on the raunchy indie.
MARVEL MOVIE UPDATE
Strike notwithstanding, Marvel released a lot of data about their movie slate in their Q3 earnings statement, which is quoted extensively at Superhero Hype. Among interesting items, animated "Hulk" and "Thor" direct-to-DVD projects will bow in 2008 and 2009, as are new animated "Hulk" and "Iron Man" series.
