SMALLVILLE

Kryptonsite has the big news today: there's an open letter from show runners Al Gough and Miles Millar, noting that they will not be back with the show in season eight.

PENCILNECK

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Victor Carungi's comic is the latest acquisition for Benderspink to develop as a feature film. Carungi self-published the title under his Paper Street imprint.

IRON MAN

CBR News has an interview with actor Terrance Howard about his role as Jim Rhodes.

In other news, the armor was on display at the CTIA 2008 show in Las Vegas. This helped showcase the $2,000 18-karat gold "Iron Man" phone (thanks to Kenneth Butler for tipping us off to that one).

HELLBOY 2: THE GOLDEN ARMY

There's new photos from the Guillermo del Toro-helmed sequel at Yahoo! Movies. A trailer is expected today.

HEROES

Sci Fi Wire has the story about NBC's new schedule, which will bring back the hit NBC series, but the "Origins" spin off is officially dead.

TRANSFORMERS 2

When you're driving down the road and see Optimus Prime on the 405 (like one scooper at Superhero Hype did), does that mean you should take the next exit?

The Sedona Film Commission lists the sequel as an upcoming production in their municipality.

SPEED RACER

Superhero Hype reports that the fast-paced film will be featured at the end of the Tribeca Film Festival on May 3rd.

THE CASTING COUCH

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, we've got fresh comics reviews online and [tagline due to return with new WGA drafts shortly].
