The Dark Knight, Iron Man, Drinky Crow: August 30th Comic Reel Wrap


Everybody's been checking out the footage from Fox's Chicago affiliate, where they show Christopher Nolan's minions blow up the Brach's Candy building. Comics2Film even has screen captures of the explosive event.


CBR News has a feature on visiting the set of the Robert Downey Jr.-fueled Marvel movie.


Comics2Film also has an interview with cartoonist Tony Millionaire and television guru Eric Kaplan, talking about what's next. "It's a pilot and a pilot is just laying down the rules of the game," Kaplan said. "It's like a launching pad to do even more crazy stuff once everybody understands these are the characters, this is the reality. And we will in the series explore more places. In the pilot I really wanted to make it clear that these guys work on a ship. But the first few episodes will not be on a ship, we're going to get to know what these guys are like at home and other places."


CBR News has photos from the World Tour, taking the cast to far flung points of the globe.


Writer/director David Goyer talked to Wizard Magazine about his two next comic related features. "We're scouting and budgeting now," Goyer said of the Master of Magnetism's movie. "It's the origins of the X-Men with Magneto and Charles Xavier. We've done some scouts and it mostly takes place in Europe and Argentina. We're doing budgets and we're sort of halfway crewed up, and so that'll be the big question: whether we can bring it in for a price. But that's all I can say."

As for sending Green Arrow to jail, Goyer said, "We haven't even officially turned in a script for that yet. The idea is that they're mostly sort of third-tier DC villains, but that was part of the fun, that they're relatively obscure. But Icicle is in it from 'JSA,' from my days on writing that. I mean, people will recognize most of them. What we did was present to DC a list of people we wanted, and then they went through it on a case-by-case basis and told us whether we could have them or not."
