THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS

Nolan or not? The Los Angeles Times asked the question, and the director himself answered with a resounding "maybe." "There are two things to be said," Nolan said. "One is the emphasis on story. What's the story? Is there a story that's going to keep me emotionally invested for the couple of years that it will take to make another one? That's the overriding question. On a more superficial level, I have to ask the question: How many good third movies in a franchise can people name? At the same time, in taking on the second one, we had the challenge of trying to make a great second movie, and there haven't been too many of those either. It's all about the story really. If the story is there, everything is possible. I hope that was a suitably slippery answer."

No release date announced.

GREEN HORNET

Speaking of masked men, the Los Angeles Times also talked to Seth Rogen about the rewrites on the project. "Stephen Chow is one of my favorite directors of all time," Rogen said. "The fact that he wants to come to America to make this movie with us is incredible. We’re rewriting it right now with a lot of Stephen’s notes and ideas. We wanted a director to come on and bring his own sensibilities to it. He had a lot of great ideas about how they could meet, ideas about how their history could have developed. And I don’t want to give too much away, but he had a lot of very influential ideas about how we would develop the emotions of the character. Which for us is very important."

Release date, June 25, 2010.

RUNAWAYS

Marvel's Kevin Feige talked to MTV, who discussed the Brian K. Vaughan property. "I love the idea. Brian brought to Marvel one of the best new concepts that we've had in quite some time," Feige said. "It's very different than anything we've done before. I love the idea of kids banding together, discovering this thing, which I think all kids secretly wonder at one time or another whether their parents are good or evil. Well, these guys find out, unfortunately, that their parents happen to be supervillains. I loved, when I was a kid, movies like 'Goonies' and 'Explorers' -- and a non-genre example of that is 'Stand by Me' -- the idea that when I came home from school, I could go on an adventure anywhere."

No release date announced.
