Many sites — including our intrepid team here at CBR — are discussing the Warner Brothers preview of material from set visits. Seems the studio dragged a lot of web journalists out there for a look see, and as of today let everybody at least mention it, if not post their material. So along with the sites listed on the aforementioned link, you can find photos of props from the film at IESB.
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times has an article on the economic reasonings that relocated Metropolis to the land of koalas and kangaroos.
Actor Patrick Stewart was interviewed by TrekWeb and he called the third film’s script, “the best script of the three. It’s very intense, it’s very emotional, it’s very personal about the individuals that we’ve already got to know in the first two movies. It has some astonishing set-piece sequences. It has a number of quite significant deaths. [From] what I’ve seen so far, I think, it’s likely to be extraordinary. Some absolutely outstanding work is happening in Vancouver — including from some of the new people who’ve come onboard ranging from Kelsey Grammer to Vinnie Jones, who are now part of the X-MEN family, If anyone saw Brett’s ‘RED DRAGON,’ which I thought was an outstanding film, I don’t think they have any reason to be nervous.”

Not so fast, with your gamma powered strength. According to what actor Eric Bana told NY Newsday, “Nobody’s talking about any sequel” to the Ang Lee-helmed Marvel adaptation. This is a new direction for Bana, who is quoted in our July 7, 2005 news summary as saying that 2006 would see a sequel happening, with him but not Jennifer Connelly.
TEEN TITANS/THE BATMAN
According to her casting web page, actress Natalie McNeil has been cast in an unspecified co-starring role for the web-spinning sequel.
SUPERHERO MOVIES OUT OF STYLE?
That’s the assertation of this article at trade magazine Variety (subscription required). They claim that all the “top tier” properties have been used by the Big Two, and Hollywood is turning to indie comics for its new stories.
AULD LANG SYNE
We made it through the wilderness (drunkenly, admittedly), somehow we made it through, ooh ooh … here’s where you get in on the action. Did you see a link we didn’t catch? Have you snuck into a closed movie set, and have inside data? Maybe your cousin is dating somebody who knows something, and they had to tell you? Whatever it is, we wanna know it all — fire off an email and let us know whether you want your name used or your contributions to geekdom to go down anonymously. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is novelist/reviewer/karaoke host/all-around lunatic Hannibal Tabu saying thanks for your time and indulgence, I hope for fresh comics reviews online tomorrow (again — drunk) and [tagline sent back to development hell until something hipper can be dreamed up].
