Transformers, Black Panther, Aquaman: July 11th Comic Reel Wrap


Ain't It Cool News has posted a set report of their visit with director Michael Bay, checking out the new Hasbro adaptation. The report describes the filming of a scene in some detail, so spoiler-free fans may wanna just move along.


Faithful reader Kevin Bradsher wrote in to alert is to another bit at AICN, a second set report we missed in yesterday's deluge. This report includes a photo of Michelle Pfeiffer looking "witchy" and a lengthy discussion of what they saw.


Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx is quoted at Contact Music as having settled his beef with his former "Any Given Sunday" co-star LL Cool J and determined to get the rapper cast as the Lord of the Wakandas. "I said, 'My man, you the only cat that can really pull this off. There's this black superhero called Panther.' So we started talking about that, did a couple of records together. We're trying to get this Panther production set up, because I think he'll smash that."


According to a story at Wizard Universe, Al Gough is hell bent on letting the fish out. "We're working on a way to get the pilot out there," Gough said. "That's sort of all I can say at the moment. Whether it's some sort of addition on season six of 'Smallville' or not -- we're really proud of the pilot. We'd love for the fans to get a chance to see it. The implication when a network doesn't pick up a show is that the pilot sucks and that's not the case. It's not a perfect pilot by any stretch of the imagination. There are other reasons -- which are a mystery to us -- as to why The CW didn't pick it up. I think it definitely puts Aquaman in a modern context and he's not lame. It's a shame because it would have been a really fun series."


Michael Grabois wrote in again to point out some updates to his blog, where he checks out an updated Wikipedia article and then summarizes all the data available in the most helpful way possible.


Here's where you get in on the action. Did you see a link we didn't catch? Have you snuck into a closed movie set, and have inside data? Maybe your cousin is dating somebody who knows something, and they had to tell you? Whatever it is, we wanna know it all -- fire off an email and let us know whether you want your name used or your contributions to geekdom to go down anonymously. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is novelist/karaoke host/all-around lunatic Hannibal Tabu saying thanks for your time and indulgence, there will be h-e-double-hockey sticks to pay if my team aren't listed as finalists in the "Entourage" contest today, and [tagline sent back to development hell until something hipper can be dreamed up].
