Smallville, Punisher: War Zone, Fluorescent Black: November 9th Comic Reel Wrap

SMALLVILLE

How about a new trailer for next week’s episode, “Blue,” courtesy of YouTube

Kryptonsite has screen captures if you’d prefer that.

PUNISHER: WAR ZONE

There’s a Flickr page set up with a number of set photos, including one of the “Brad Street Hotel,” probably a nod to cover artist Tim Bradstreet.

FLUORESCENT BLACK

According to Variety, Imagi Animation Studios (the makers of “TMNT”) have acquired the rights for the screenplay, which will be presented as a graphic novel prior to hitting the silver screen, probably saving a great deal of time in storyboarding. The graphic novel is slated for completion in mid-2008.

STARKWEATHER

Variety also reports that Benderspink has optioned the rights to the Archaia Studios Press comic book series.

THE MAN OF STEEL

Superhero Hype caught up with actor Frank Langella and asked whether he’d be back as Perry White. “Yeah, I’ve got two more to do,” Langella said. “I think both with the strike and with the fact that they haven’t come up with a really great story yet, I don’t know when the next Superman is going to be. My guess is that it probably won’t be until next year.”

THE DARK KNIGHT

Director Christopher Nolan pooh-poohed indications that his production is a polluter. “That was my decision, nothing to do with pollution. It was simply a script decision,” Nolan told AFP. “Once you see the finished film, you will understand why. As far as the pollution question goes, I honestly have no problem dumping movie stars in it.”

WGA STRIKE WATCH: DAY FIVE

“Smallville” producer Steven DeKnight posted a brief blog on MySpace about the strike, and Paul Dini has updated his online journal with words of encouragement about the labor dispute as well. Mark Evanier dissects the central conflict driving the argument, and is is skeptical that the strike will drive droves of writers into comics and animation work, despite a story in Reuters UK alleging just that.

Creator Seth MacFarlane notes that the November 11th episode of “Family Guy” is “the last fully-produced episode in the can,” and he’s not going to cross the picket line.

We found two relevant strike specific blogs from columnist Nikki Finke and from the Los Angeles Times.

The BBC notes that California governor Arnold Schwartzenegger is working “backstage” to try and end the strike, and finally, the WGA is staging a huge rally in front of Fox Studios in New York and Los Angeles to mark the fifth day of their work stoppage.

THAT’S A WRAP

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 Miles Millar?” 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, and “enough talk — let’s go make with the ‘biff’ and the ‘pow’ already.”
