How bad does creator Todd McFarlane want the sequel/reboot to happen? So much that he's willing to put his money where his mouth is, according to an interview at Home Media Magazine (it's a bit of a download, be patient). McFarlane, who's writing the script now, said, "I can make a spooky, suspenseful thriller that will scare the crap out of you."
Robin and the team on the big screen? All true, and CBR has the details.
FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER
Oh, and that new trailer aired last night too ...
Wait until July 4th? SOme won't have to, according to Variety, which reports that the film will hold its Los Angeles premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 27. Now all you have to do is score a ticket ...
THE DARK KNIGHT
We got an email from scooper Karl Ruddabaker who wrote in about a potential SPOILER, so skip the next paragraph if you want to avoid it.
Ruddabaker wrote, "My friend's cousin is Emma Thomas' assistant, and according to my friend's cousin, a piece of the 'RFK' script [The project is code named RFK to try and avoid leaks -- good luck with that] was leaked out, showing that at the end of the film after The Joker is locked-up in Arkham Asylum, a 'Dr. Quinzel' is assigned to look after him and study. The last line of The Joker's scene apparently ends with 'Please, call me Mister J.'" Thanks for the scoop, Karl!
SIN CITY 2
Apparently actor Michael Madsen spoke without having all the facts, or so says Frank Miller in an interview with Rotten Tomatoes. "'Sin City 2' is still likely to happen," said Miller, "just not right away. The script is written and Robert and I are raring to go, but it looks like I'm going to be doing 'The Spirit' first and Robert's going to be doing 'Barbarella' first."
The animated feature will make its debut on Thursday night at this year's San Diego Comicon (which occurs in just eight weeks).
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, comics reviews will have to happen because UPS can't handle a Monday holiday, and "enough talk -- let's go make with the 'biff' and the 'pow' already."
