Smallville, The Man of Steel, Iron Man: January 4th Comic Reel Wrap


The network has posted a new interview with actress Allison Mack, who discussed her character's insights and relationships on the show.


More from the "unsubstantiated rumors" file -- according to Latino Review, actor Brandon Routh is out as the titular hero, with whoever slides into the blue tights for George Miller's "Justice League" movie getting the nod for any solo Kryptonian adventures after that.


Director Jon Favreau gave MTV an update on what's happening on the metallic Marvel movie. "There's a lot of effects work that's going to be happening in the next six months," Favreau said. "The movie is pretty much going to be everything that it's going to be by the end of January. Because so much of it is animated and CGI you have to turn it over and let those people do their work on it. So we'll be done in about a month with all the big creative decisions. And then the rest of it becomes about scoring and sound design."

Favreau also told MTV that he's keen to team up, once all the Avengers have had their own moments to shine. "I wonder if the tone of 'The Incredible Hulk' is going to be similar or different than ['Iron Man']," Favreau said. "And 'Captain America' is a twinkle in Marvel's eye right now. And 'Thor' and 'Ant Man.' [But] in the case of Marvel they're pretty clear on wanting to do it with the actors who've established the roles or to not do it at all. That's what they've said to me."


Did he or didn't he? The coverage about Jay Leno's monologue and how he broke the rules by writing his own material instead of doing improv has everybody weighing in on the issue. To whit: writing for any show without a WGA deal? Not cool. Just FYI.

Reuters is reporting that the studios are starting informal talks with the Directors Guild of America (even though they characterize the WGA as recalcitrant with statements like "if only to show that at least one Hollywood labor organization is willing to engage with the studio organization"). The strikers have their own take on the developments.

According to the BBC, "It has been calculated that $325m in wages have been lost for both writers and other studio workers. The cost of the wider 'economic impact,' meanwhile, has been put at $500m."


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 [tagline redacted until the WGA strike is resolved].
