SMALLVILLE

Kryptonsite has a somewhat spoilery scan from TV Guide talking about Lois and Clark's relationship.  

New preview clips from the new episode "Sleeper?"  Oh yeah ...

... there are ...

... a few ...

INCREDIBLE HULK

IGN has video interviews with producers Gail Anne Hurd or Kevin Feige talking about the movie.  

Hurd's also quoted at Sci Fi Wire as saying the production needed Norton.  "We didn't have to go back and do an origin story," Hurd said.  "We had the opportunity to continue and do a story where Bruce Banner is already the Hulk. So we asked, 'Who is Bruce Banner?'  He's a scientist.  He can't outrun you or outfight you. He's on the run and trying to find a cure, but he does have the Hulk inside him.  [Norton is] a very smart guy, a Yale graduate.  He plays duality better than anyone out there today. From 'Primal Fear' to 'Fight Club,' he kind of defines that duality. So he's the quintessential Bruce Banner." 

HANCOCK

Hancock was here ... or at least on YouTube ...

THE BLACK PANTHER

We got an email pointing out this New York Comic-Con coverage featuring BET's Denys Cowan discussing the new animated series. "The new show will be based on the first story arc, 'Who is the Black Panther?' from the Marvel Comics series written by BET vice president Reginald Hudlin. Cowan reported that Hudlin will be writing the animated series, and that the series will be using many of artist John Romita Jr's designs and aspire to look a lot like the original comics. The eight-episode series is currently scheduled to debut in October 2008. Cowan stated that there were no voice casting announcements he could make yet, but that they were talking to 'some stars you might know.'"

THE DARK KNIGHT

Jim Gordon's sending out some emails, and he's recruiting for Operation: Slipknot.  Does this have anything to do with the Gotham Intercontinental Hotel?  Probably not.  

IRON MAN

There's three new videos from the metal minded Marvel movie at Comics2Film. 

SPEED RACER

Superhero Hype has two new TV spots while Sci Fi Wire has words from actress Susan Sarandon about being Mom Racer.  "I'm kind of like a very hippie Martha Stewart," Sarandon said.  "It took me a long time not to mother the guys that I was with completely. I'm the oldest of nine, and so I was conditioned. I just always had a baby on my hip, and I love family and I love bringing people together. It's quite selfish, because I'm really shy, and so it helps me integrate. Last night we were all in my room. It's just a natural thing, and if it's not happening, I feel really alienated somehow, because it's always been like that, from the very beginning of my career and in everything that I've ever done. I just like making group things happen." 

THE MAN OF STEEL

Actor Brandon Routh has a video interview at Collider talking about lensing a sequel early next year.  

ZACK & MIRI MAKE A PORNO

CBR News has complete coverage of last weekend's NYCC panel with Kevin Smith's virtual entertainment hub Quick Stop Entertainment.  

HELLBOY 2: THE GOLDEN ARMY

Director Guillermo del Toro is quoted at Sci Fi Wire saying he could only pull off one more sequel after this one.  "If there was ever a third one, I would really make sure that we at least sign a contract that there is no more," del Toro said.  "No prequels and no sequels: nothing. If that happens, then there is a third one we have planned, and the seeds are planted in this film." 

IGN also has video interviews with del Toro and the cast.

HOLLYWOOD SWINGIN'

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 Warner Brothers?"  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 "don't call it a comeback!"
