New season, pal. Got your season seven teaser, fresh from YouTube ...
What's up with the sequel? Producer Don Murphy has some thoughts: "For those of you most anxious about 'TRANSFORMERS 2,' the silence you hear is primarily because people are fretting about a presumed strike in June 2008. Will it happen? I don't know- does the public care about strikes anymore in this day and age? What do rich people have to strike about anyway? I don't have any side here (you hear about the writers and the Producers but that actually means the STUDIOS) I just think stopping work is kind of pointless. But since no one wants to be filming IF a strike happens, everything needs to be done filming by the end of May 2008. So this is affecting the lack of news about 'Transformers 2' at least for now. Stay tuned."
More heavy metal? Fair enough -- who wants to wait for an official release when Apple's QuickTime site jumped the gun and posted the trailer.
THE DARK KNIGHT
Staying in Gotham City for a moment, CBR News has five images from the animated series' season premiere, "The Batman/Superman Story."
Mmm, fresh spoilers from Obsessed With Film.
Fold up that flag, soldier -- Fox News confirmation from the studio that "the name 'G.I. Joe' will become an acronym for 'Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity' Ñ an international, coed task force charged with defeating bad guys. It will no longer stand for government issued, as in issued by the American government."
More mutant news from The XVerse -- apparently Logan is ready for his close up as soon as November in Sydney. Crikey!
When in doubt, ask the Invisible Woman -- when asked by MTV whether or not she wanted to follow in Jane Fonda's, er, shoes, actress Jessica Alba said, "Isn't that going to Rose? I think it is." Alba's been chatty and accurate before, but for now this is unconfirmed.
LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION
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."
