JUSTICE LEAGUE

No news is ... well, not good news, right? Musician-turned-actor Common spoke to IGN, discussing what he knows about the team-up project.

However, Variety is reporting that if director George Miller remains with the film, he may be forced to renegotiate his deal.

Speaking of Miller, he spoke briefly about the project to The 7:30 Report. "I don't think many of us realise quite how far our film industry has fallen away. We've been eclipsed by so many other industries, particularly the New Zealanders, many of the Asian industries, and certainly most of the Europeans ... It was suggested that I was somehow the stooge of the American studio, that I didn't have enough creative control."

THE DARK KNIGHT

Hh, that's unusual. If you click to the Gotham City Pizzaria website, and hold your cursor over the letters "ha" ... something strange happens ... clicking through leads to even more strangeness.

The Gotham Times has been updated with version three of the newspaper.

Also, in case you missed it, the campaign for Gotham City District Attorney has apparently been won by Harvey Dent while the websites of his opponents have been updated as well.

Fans can also submit images of their Batman sightings to Gotham Cable News.

Finally, Comic Book Movie has reports of new filming in the Windy City ... what are they doing there?

ASTRO BOY

Reuters has the official announcement about the voice cast, which includes Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Nathan Lane, Bill Nighy and Eugene Levy. A 2009 release is planned.

RIP STAN WINSTON

CBR News has the word on the passing of a legend.

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'll have fresh comics reviews online after 1PM today and The Hundred and Four is in your room, touching your stuff.
