Wanted, The Spirit, Heroes: August 17th Comic Reel Wrap

WANTED

There’s 12 new photos of Angelina Jolie wielding guns and lounging on a red Dodge Viper over at Just Jared, if you’re into that kind of thing.

THE SPIRIT

According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress Scarlett Johansson will play femme fatale Silk N. Floss in the Frank Miller-directed Will Eisner adaptation. She joins Gabriel Macht in the title role and Samuel L. Jackson, who plays The Octopus.

HEROES

The Hollywood Reporter also noted that “Bratz” actress Janel Parrish has landed a multi-episode arc on the hit NBC series. Parrish will play May, the head cheerleader at the new school that Claire (Hayden Panettiere) attends.

THE DARK KNIGHT

CBR News on the trail of a bunch of new photos from the film? Sure, why not? Meanwhile, there’s spoilers galore at Slashfilm and IESB.

THOR

Sorry no “Iron Man” news to follow that, but will another Avenger do? IESB has a script review of the Odinson’s adventures …

WOLVERINE

… and you can find one about Logan’s struggles at Gone Elsewhere.

WONDER WOMAN

Bunked … aaaaand debunked. Sure, IGN had a good run, quoting that bastion of journalistic integrity Star Magazine, and their claim that Katie Holmes was heading for Themiscira. But the team at IESB sat everyone down for a good talk, and refute all that hullaballoo, claiming that the live action “Justice League” movie has put the invisible plane in mothballs.

DOCTOR STRANGE

The IESB was busy today — they also claim that a live action movie about the Sorcerer Supreme is being pitched to potential directors.

WATCHMEN

Shock Till You Drop talked to composer Tyler Bates about bringing the much ballyhooed superhero classic to the silver screen. “Well, I’m not a comic guy, but of course I read it when I knew he was making it, but not until ‘300’ was done and not until he asked me to do it. I thought it was really great. I love the characters and I love Rorschach, and they just sent me the script a couple weeks ago and I read it and thought, ‘Wow, this is a fantastic adaptation of this book.’ I didn’t know how they could possibly condense that book, but you know what, people thought that about ‘300’ as well. There were people trying to make ‘300’ and there were several versions floating around town and they couldn’t make it.”

THAT’S A WRAP

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, and “enough talk — let’s go make with the ‘biff’ and the ‘pow’ already.”
