THE DARK KNIGHT
USA Today reportedly has the first look at some of the Joker's henchmen in an article discussing shooting four of the film's scenes in the IMAX format. "Batman has some of the most extraordinary characters in pop culture," director Christopher Nolan said. We wanted the Joker to have the grandest entrance possible." The newspaper published a second photo, which has a glimpse of the Joker himself, scanned in over at Comic Book Movie.
Screen Rant has some alleged spoilers about the antagonists who will appear in the Jon Favreau-helmed Marvel movie.
The build up is getting legen -- wait for it -- dary with a new TV spot (captured from an actual television and then posted on YouTube -- how gauche) ...
... as well as a new Transformers-centric commercial featuring actress Megan Fox and the Autobot Jazz ...
Finally, the Herald Sun has a brief article about actress Rachel Taylor, who appeared as Maggie in the movie.
ALIEN VS. PREDATOR 2
Alien Experience has posted a possibly spoiler-esque set report where they interviewed assistant art director Andrew Li about the sequel, slated to bow December 25th. "We wanted to keep the sewer relatively small so that the aliens and predators would look very menacing and horrifyingly huge in the set. In fact, when the predator is standing in full costume, he is over 8 feet tall!"
Film Ick reports that author Neil Gaiman will take the Frank Miller route, directing a feature film based on his "Death: The High Cost of Living" mini-series. The site claims that Gaiman met with director Guillermo del Toro about the project, slated to start shooting this fall in the UK. Shia LaBeouf remains the favorite to play the male lead Sexton Furnival.
Fox exec Tom Rothman is quoted at The XVerse talking about what fans can expect to come out of Westchester. "The next film in the X-Men series will be 'Wolverine,' starring Hugh Jackman. You can expect some announcements about this movie in the very near future. And we fully intend to continue to make more 'X-Men' films with both old and new muties. So fans can rest assured that they will have many opportunities in the coming years to see their favorite characters on the big screen."
Actress Rebecca Romijn hasn't heard anything about any of it, or so she told MTV. "I hear the same rumors you hear," she said, "but nobody has come to me."
Rothman talked release dates with XMenFilms.net. "It's really soon to tell." said Rothman. The most important thing is to get the movies right! If I had to guess, I'd say Wolvie in '08 and Mag in '09, but it could change."
FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER
THE INCREDIBLE HULK
Director Louis Leterrier was interviewed in French about the project, and a kind party on the Superhero Hype message boards translated it so we could find out things like the Hulk's height (nine feet tall). This Canadian site has what could be a synopsis for the reboot.
We've got a discussion with actor Chad Faust here at CBR.
Box Office Mojo reports that the movie has crossed the $800 million mark worldwide, tallying up more than $300 million domestically.
