One costumed billionaire follows another as CBR News has a first look at the new trailer, as well as a series of screen captures from it as well.  


According to Superhero Hype, Imagi Studios has revealed "Spiderwick Chronicles" actor Freddie Highmore will voice the classic character in the manga motion picture.  


Getting back to Gotham City for a moment, CBR News has a few more looks at the animated direct-to-DVD feature.  


Actor Michael Kenneth Williams talked to IGN, revealing very little about his involvement in the reboot.  "I will say that I go toe-to-toe with the green guy himself," Williams said. "We're definitely face-to-face. I'll leave it at that."  Talking about his experience, Williams said, "It was a blast working with Ed Norton. He's from Baltimore, so he really felt passionate about 'The Wire' [which is set in Baltimore] and what we did on there as a whole.  He specifically created this role for me in The Hulk. It's just very flattering and humbling. 'Hulk' is going to be crazy. It's going to be crazy. Part 2 has definitely stepped its game up from Part 1. I think Ed did a phenomenal job of writing it, and as we know, he plays Bruce Banner. It's going to be really cool."

Italian site Bad Taste has some new character art showcasing ol' Jade Jaws, some of which was shown as toy packaging already.  


"300" star Gerard Butler told Empire Magazine that "Tales of the Black Freighter" will be shot for the adaptation.  "I'm going to do the voice of the captain," said Butler. "They're going to do it in the style of a Japanese anime and I'm totally stoked."  

Meanwhile, Watchmen Comic Movie found out that "Eureka" actor Niall Matter will  play Mothman in the movie as well.  


Reset those DVRs -- according to ICv2, the premiere of the new animated series has been pushed back to Saturday, May 8th.  Two episodes will then debut back-to-back at starting at 10 am (ET, PT). 


Kryptonsite has fresh spoilers about episode titles in April, as well as more production stills from the March 20th episode "Traveler."  


Is that another new photo of Hugh Jackman in character, leather jacket and all, at Comics2Film?  Maybe ...


A posting at the New York Mayor's Office of Film (PDF) indicates that the Mark Millar adaptation will be in the Big Apple during the second week of March.  


A rumor from World's Finest implies that there will be no more animated adventures for the exaggerated teen heroes.  They heard from creator Marv Wolfman that the movie is currently on hold because, according to Warner Home Video, there may not be a big enough audience for the "Teen Titans: The Judas Contract" animated feature to be successful. "Teen Titans: The Judas Contract" was originally scheduled to be the third DC Universe Animated Movie before Warner Home Video delayed it, opting to produce "Batman: Gotham Knight" and "Wonder Woman" instead.  Shafted by the grown ups, how rude ...


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, we expect Comic Reel Wrap email to be back up next week and [tagline due to return with new WGA drafts shortly].
