G.I. JOE: RISE OF COBRA
Latino Review talked to actor Marlon Wayans about his role in the toy adaptation. "The movie is serious, action and some comedy -- but not all comedy," Wayans said. "It wasn't about 'Hey, let it be the me comedy show.' It is 'G.I. Joe.' It's supposed to be badass action. So you commit to it - and I found the fun in being a badass, for once in my life."

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE
There's a ton of new video interviews at Superhero Hype with four of the film's actors.
Ryan Reynolds told MTV that he not only wants to spin off the merc-with-a-mouth, but to smack around Cyclops' son. "The 'Deadpool/Cable' stuff is great," Reynolds said. "I've never really cast that character in my head. He's such a complicated character. I wish they would do a 'Cable' movie first, just to explain the guy. And then they could do a 'Deadpool vs. Cable' kind of thing."
Sci Fi Wire caught a press conference with actor Liev Shreiber about how actors egged each other on. "Early on we were shooting the first big fight sequence with Hugh and I, which was outside of the bar. Hugh and I had rehearsed day and night for this," Schreiber said, "and I'll admit, I'll be candid here, I wasn't sure that physically I was up to this role. Now I know that I am, but initially I was a little concerned. I'm sorry to say this in public, but Hugh and I being the elder statesmen of this cast, I think we were both rightfully concerned that we wouldn't be able to pull off the fight that the stunt guys had shown us. Sure, we'd been lifting weights and we looked large, but what they were asking for was truly impossible, and I just remember the third night, after shooting until six in the morning every night, looking over at Hugh, and the two of us were just so smashed up by this fight and desperate to improve but desperate to impress our small sons at home, and they said, 'Would you guys like to do one more?' I remember looking across at Hugh, praying that he would say, 'I'm tired. I want to go home and go to bed.' And he said, "Nah. I feel great!'"

One more mutant-minded movie note from MTV: Fox execs won't have Gambit in their "X-Men: First Class" movie, but would love to have a certain friend back to do a spin off. Producer Lauren Shuler Donner said "nothing would please me more than to bring Bryan [Singer] on for another movie. And, if it's like the first 'Deadpool' or the first 'Gambit,' I think, I mean, I hope he would be interested ..."

THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS
Actor Christian Bale talked to Total Film about sequel possibilities. "Will we do a third movie? It's got to be the right story," Bale said. "You can't make something like 'The Dark Knight' and then come out with something disappointing. I would like it if people say, 'You'll never make a good third movie.' I say, 'OK, let's make a third movie in that case, let's prove them wrong. But that's just me. The fact is, I have to! I've signed up! Chris doesn't. So I'm in a bit of a fix if he says he doesn't want to!"
No release date announced.
