The Dark Knight, Powers, Hellboy 2, Transformers: June 28th Comic Reel Wrap

THE DARK KNIGHT

According to Variety, actors Melinda McGraw and Nathan Gamble have joined the cast as the wife and son of Lt. James Gordon. No word on Babs.

ABC7Chicago.com has a five minute video taken on the set yesterday, while Superhero Hype has a mildly spoiler-y set report

POWERS

CBR interviewed creator Brian Michael Bendis who revealed the rights to the property had reverted back from Sony. “It wasn’t working and they spent a lot of money,” Bendis said, “so we said, ‘okay, just give it back and we’ll set up somewhere else.’ Then later they called back and said, ‘well, maybe we’ll buy it again’ and then they asked me, y’know, ‘what is it?’ And they were nice about it, but when they say to me ‘what is it?’ I’m like — you’ve had it for six years, you’re asking now? They still wanted to carve a piece of ‘Spider-Man’ out of it, and it’s just not Spider-Man. I was like , ‘Think ‘Seven,’ guys. There’s another genre that’s popular that you can make money out of. Think of that one, not this other one.’ And that’s when they said, ‘ah, just go ahead and take it.’ So now we’re going to go find a home for it.”

Bendis also revealed that “Jinx” is in active development and the screenplay draft of “Torso” just came in recently.

HELLBOY 2

Keeping it all in the family, Neil Gaiman’s daughter Maddy posted some blogs from the set of the Guillermo del Toro-helmed sequel over on Gaiman’s website.

TRANSFORMERS

Actor Jon Voight is quoted at Sci Fi Wire talking about working with director Michael Bay. “Laughter is necessary when you’re working on a film like this,” Voight said. “But Michael is … so active on the set. Some directors just sit in front of a monitor, you know, and you don’t get much interaction. But with Michael he’s in everybody’s [face], you know, energy. He’ll be painting sometimes, lifting the camera. He’s everywhere, you know? So he’s quite an amazing persona on a set.”

Moviehole has posted another review of the film while three of those Michael Bay-directed GM commercials have popped up on YouTube.

CONAN

Variety is also reporting that New Line is looking to get the Cimmerian character back on the silver screen.

WATCHMEN

Actor Thomas Jane was quoted at ShockTilYouDrop.com as having an interest in taking on the role of the Comedian. “I’m staying quiet about it,” Jane said. “I know that Zack’s interested and that’s a great compliment.”

THE BATMAN

Bringing it back to Gotham, Toon Zone has a promotional image from the two part fifth season premiere, which features Superman.

L.A. CONFIDENTIAL

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, fresh comics reviews are online for your … er, review, and “enough talk — let’s go make with the ‘biff’ and the ‘pow’ already.”
