TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN

How would you like some behind-the-scenes footage of filming? If you check out a special web site from Wal-Mart (using the special code "AllSpark62609"), you can take a look at the Bethlehem, PA set.

WATCHMEN

CBR News has the story on the official court date.

JEFF KATZ

The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Fox VP of Production and "Booster Gold" co-writer Jeff Katz has left the studio for a gig that sources indicate involves both films and comic books. Katz, who was crucial in the development of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," told THR, "I'm being offered an incredible creative opportunity involving my own intellectual property. At 29 years old with no mortgage or family to support, now is the time to bet on myself."

GREEN LANTERN

Comics2Film has posted some concept art from illustrator Brian Murray, art which helped the production company get the movie.

GHOST RIDER 2?

Possible, according to actor Nic Cage, who told Superhero Hype "... had a nice meeting with the studio about 3-months ago, and we talked about going international with that character. Taking him into Europe, having him go on a motorcycle tour through Europe, and he's connected with the church, if you can believe that. So it sort of has elements to it that are very much in the zeitgeist, with 'The Da Vinci Code' and things like that."

KICK-ASS

Actress Chloe Moretz has posted a new blog about being in the new Mark Millar adaptation. "I have had cool wardrobe fittings and hair consults and tomorrow we start rehearsals," she wrote. "I got to meet Nic Cage who plays Big Daddy (Hit Girl's father) and he is the nicest man. I loved talking with he and Matthew Vaughn about all of their ideas for the film. THis film is going to be soooooooooooooo much FUN! My costume is so great. I do have my work cut out for me though because it is a HUGE role but I am definitely up for it. I love working hard. I will be here for about 3 months. Well, actually, I will be in Toronto for 3 weeks to train martial arts and to do a few days of exterior shots then back to London. The whole thing should wrap here in London around the first week of December."

THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS

Director Christopher Nolan hasn't confirmed his involvement, but already stars are sniffing at roles, including "Heroes" actor Milo Ventimiglia interested in being Robin and actor Guy Pearce interested in anything as long as Nolan's involved. But what about Aaron Eckhart? He talks definitively and with spoilers about the future of Harvey Two-Face.

DREAMS WITH SHARP TEETH

CBR News also has an interview with creator Harlan Ellison about the directory based on his work.

BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG CITY

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, you'll see fresh comics reviews on Saturday and The Hundred and Four has the intersection of science fiction and vengeance.
