Wolverine, Battling Boy, Johnny Quest: April 13th Comic Reel

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

MTV has debuted five new character profile videos from the mutant-minded movie (you can see them all at Superhero Hype as well).

Meanwhile, actor Ryan Reynolds is quoted at News24 saying that one of the reasons he signed on to be Wade Wilson was because the project is so … messy. “You’re not going to see ‘Kill Bill’-style blood geysering up from severed heads,” Reynolds said, “but I think you’re going to see a kind of violence that’s a little more brutal, rugged and ugly. Which is one of the things I liked about it. I trained for months to master the sword work, so he’s obviously a master swordsman but he’s also an accomplished fighter. There’s martial arts, weaponry, everything. He’s a guy you don’t want to mess with. This character is like a surgeon. I’ve got to be so good with these swords that I put people’s jaws on the floor.”

Starring Hugh Jackman, release date: May 1, 2009.

BATTLING BOY

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Watchmen” screenwriter Alex Tse will adapt the Paul Pope graphic novel, for Brad Pitt’s Plan B and Paramount Pictures.

No release date or casting information announced.

JOHNNY QUEST

The Los Angeles Times has a blog confirming that actor Zac Efron has been cast as the lad character … but that the name of the property might change.

No release date announced.

THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS

Actor Michael Caine thinks he’s rooted out the root of “Phillip Seymour Hoffman as the Penguin” and “Johnny Depp as the Riddler” rumors — himself. He told the tale to MTV.

Starring Christian Bale, no release date announced.

SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD

Universal Studios has launched the official website for the new movie, while director Edgar Wright posted a new photo on his blog.

No release date announced.

SMALLVILLE

Kryptonsite has the official network description for the April 30th episode, “Beast.”

Next episode, “Turbulence,” April 19, 2009.

HEROES

If you checked out IMDB, you might find some information about upcoming episodes that Herosite thinks is just plain crazy.

Next episode: “1961,” tonight.

THE CASTING COUCH

If you have the scoop on anything related to comic book movies, TV adaptations or just want to give us a truck full of cash, no questions asked, drop us a line and let’s coordinate. You can choose an alias if you’d like, or be mentioned by name — we honor requests for anonymity.
