Smallville, Punisher 2, Transformers, Heroes: May 17th Comic Reel Wrap

SMALLVILLE

Can you feel the excitement in the air? Season finale tonight! Which means today has to have a deluge of press from people associated with the show! Let's start at the top: producer Al Gough was the subject of an interview with producer Al Gough, who guaranteed that there will be "not only one death, but maybe even more."

Actor Phil Morris, who plays the Martian Manhunter, has not just one but two interviews (with IF Magazine and Pluggd) talking season finale and more.

Finally, TV Guide's Michael Ausiello has some potential spoilers about what you'll see tonight, if you just can't wait.

PUNISHER 2

Despite yesterday's announcement that star Thomas Jane had backed out of the project, it continues to shamble towards existence. Freeze Dried Movies has a fresh rumor that director John Dahl is in "major talks" to take over the beleaguered sequel.

TRANSFORMERS

New TV spot? Gotcha.

Anyhoo, there's also a whole lotta new production stills on this site, and if you can make out what language they're speaking you might figure some other stuff out as well.

HEROES

CBR has video previews of the season finale, "How To Stop An Exploding Man."

THE DARK KNIGHT

According to Variety, actor Nestor Carbonell has joined the production to play the role of Gotham City's mayor. Rapper David Banner told MTV that he's been cast in the film as a new villain called Gamble.

ReelChicago is counting up the final tallies to note that at least $30 million from the film's $150 million budget will stay in the hands of Windy City residents and businesses.

FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER

IGN has a couple of new photos from the Marvel adaptation.

WATCHMEN

Hollywood North Report claims that "The Watchmen" will open up their production offices in June with shooting to begin in mid to late August. The movie is directed by "300" alumni Zack Snyder.
