THOR

There's new casting rumors about the two lead roles: for the God of Mischief, IESB claims that Josh Hartnett has met with director Kenneth Branagh and wants to give the role a shot because he's never played a villain (Slevin Kelevra doesn't count).  

Not enough?  Okay, how about this for a Thunder God (if Latino Review is to be believed): standing six foot four, having a meal with Branagh in Los Feliz, it's actor Alexander Skarsgard!  Branagh and two unidentified men ate with Skarsgard at Blair's Restaurant, but maybe it was just a friendly meeting between a Shakespearean actor and a statuesque Nordic man.  Maybe.  

Release date: July 16, 2010.

JUSTICE LEAGUE

We may yet see Common as Green Lantern, if we can believe what director George Miller told MTV.  "I'm still attached to the film," he said.  "Warner Bros. is waiting to develop the other characters a little bit and then bring Justice League together. After the success of ['The Dark Knight'], it's well known that they will develop the other characters and then bring them together in 'Justice League.' That's a fair way down the track."

No release date announced.

TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN

Fans were disappointed that Frank Welker wasn't chosen to play Megatron and made their voices heard on director Michael Bay's message boards.  His response?  "I think I'm going to pursue Frank on Soundwave."  'Nuff said.

Starring Shia LeBeouf, release date: June 24, 2009.
