THE MAN OF STEEL
According to Variety's Anne Thompson, the real reason we're not seeing more motion on a Super-sequel is ... Bryan Singer? "Today I was told that it is a priority at the studio to find the right direction and if Bryan Singer is willing to do that, fine, but if he gets in the way, he may not stay on the project. There are no writers working on a Superman script now. The studio wants to figure it out. 'It might be better to start from scratch,' one exec admitted." Thanks to Mike Aloisio for pointing that out.
THE MANY WORLDS OF JONAS MOORE
Variety also reports that MGM Domestic Television Distribution has optioned the U.K.-based online graphic novel. The studio aims to develop "Jonas" into an action-drama, with a U.S.-U.K. co-production deal a possibility, according to Chris Ottinger, executive VP of worldwide TV for MGM. Film Collective's Ruth Vitale is attached to the project as an executive producer.

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE
The rumor from Comic Book Movie is that there's trouble in Westchester. "This is a second-hand but reliably sourced story about the currently-shooting Wolverine movie," a scooper wrote. "There was/is a huge Wolverine set being recently used. I'm not even sure which lot it was built on, but the look or mood of the set is, according to a source who was told Hood's view of things, supposed to be on the dark, dinghy and somber side. I only know what I was told, but the basics are that Hood was away from the set for whatever reason (shooting something else, taking a day or two off), and when he returned to the big somber set he was shocked to find that it had been repainted top to bottom on Rothman's orders. The murky-scuzzy vibe was gone, and a brighter and less downish look had taken its place."
CBR News also has a special feature on actor Justin Hartley and how he became such a "straight shooter."
