THE DARK KNIGHT
Much like the exclusive shots we had on July 9th, Superhero Hype has new set photos and two set reports with possible spoilers. The site also notes a direct to video anime-styled animated series that will take place between the films "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight."
Also, actor Christian Bale talked to Newsday about what's next for the franchise. "It's now the question of the burden and toll of what he's doing, the question can this be a finite endeavor," Bale said. "Is this something that has an end? Can he quit and have an ordinary life? The kind of manic intensity someone has to have to maintain the passion and the anger that they felt as a child, takes an effort after awhile, to keep doing that. At some point, you have to exorcise your demons. That's what I love about Batman. There's so much that is about character."
CBR has exclusive production stills from the Sci Fi Network series.
THE LIVING CORPSE
According to Variety "Shoreline Entertainment has optioned the film rights to adult indie comic book ... created by Ken Haeser and Buz Hasson." Shoreline CEO Morris Ruskin will produce the project as a live-action feature written and helmed by Justin Ritter.
Wasn't it great social commentator Gary Gnu who gave us the word on the next big toy adaptation? Latino Review has posted an email from Hasbro COO Brian Goldner.

Let us know how that works out for you.
Moviehole has some character breakdowns from the Zack Snyder-helmed Alan Moore adaptation, including Moloch, the Big Figure and the original Silk Spectre.
30 DAYS OF NIGHT
Creator Steve Niles was interviewed by Shock Till You Drop about the upcoming movie and all things horrifying. Speaking about Ben Templesmith, he said, "We both worked at McFarlane and we had this thing where any time we did an issue of 'Hellspawn,' we had to wait about a month for Todd to approve it, so we'd be sitting around twiddling our thumbs, and I had this whole pitch list of movies I'd been pitching that never sold. I gave it to Ted Adams and he picked '30 Days of Night,' and since then, literally everything on that list has become either a comic or sold as a movie."
Two character-based teaser posters for the upcoming film can be found at the Francophone site DVDrama.
