SPIDER-MAN 4

Director Sam Raimi told Sci Fi Wire that he heard the complaints about the last film. "Do I take the criticism into consideration?" Raimi asked. "Yeah, absolutely. I don't make an artistic type of picture that I can say to myself, 'Even if this crowd doesn't like it, it stands as a work of art and will be appreciated years later or has meaning without the audience.' I simply am an entertainer, and I make films for audience appreciation. When they don't like it, I don't have a leg to stand on. You really want to please people."

G.I. JOE: RISE OF COBRA

Actor Marlon Wayans discusses his flexibility as an actor with Black Voices. "The main thing is that the character is black in the film," Wayans said of the difference between the animated version and himself. "I've played a drug addict in 'Requiem for a Dream,' a thief in 'The Ladykillers' and a white girl in 'White Chicks,' so I can play any part. Rachel Nichols is also my romantic interest in the film, which wasn't part of the cartoon series."

Starring Christopher Eccleston, release date: August 7, 2009.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox International is in talks to produce a live-action movie based on a Japanese manga.

EL SUPERBEASTO

"But the company that owns 'El Superbeasto,' the problem is, that company has changed hands, like, at least five times since I started. So, every time we're near release, it gets sold, new executives come in, and it derails the project."

No release date announced.
