SMALLVILLE

Actress Kristin Kreuk talked to Metro.co.uk about kicking butt in the new "Street Fighter" film and why she left. "I love the people and it's a wonderful show to work on but I realized there were things I couldn't do due to the schedule on 'Smallville,'" Kreuk said. "Lana has changed so much since the first season so she was always fun to play. I just wanted to try something else."

USC alumni and Entertainment Weekly columnist Michael Ausiello has some spoilers about events that may involve the aforementioned actress and a look at the future.

Speaking of actors on the show making big moves, IGN has the story on Allison Mack's directorial debut, with some possible spoilers within.

Finally, Kryptonsite has new screen captures for next week's episode "Plastique."

CONAN

The rumor coming in from DreadCentral is that "X3" director Brett Ratner is being considered for a trip to Cimmeria.

THE SPIRIT

If you were at San Diego's Comic-con, you may recognize some of the images now available at Comics2Film, released from the studio.

KICK-ASS

Actor Clark Duke told MTV that he hopes the project will inspire reckless behavior in a generation. "[Lizewski's] first [line] is, 'How come everybody wants to be Paris Hilton, and no one wants to be Spider-Man?'" said Duke. "I don't know maybe it will be some weird cultural pneumatic thing that will catch on where everyone just dresses up?"

WATCHMEN

In "completely obvious" news, another journalist -- this time from the Los Angeles Times -- was crazy enough to ask Alan Moore about the adaptation. "Will the film even be coming out?" Moore asked. "There are these legal problems now, which I find wonderfully ironic. Perhaps it's been cursed from afar, from England, and I can tell you that I will also be spitting venom all over it for months to come." Cheery!

THAT'S A WRAP

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, and The Hundred and Four is an enigma wrapped inside a puzzle and smothered with secret sauce.
