300 2

While Frank Miller continues to work on the scenario for the second Spartan story, producer Mark Canton tells MTV Splashpage that director Zack Snyder will return. "That, Zack has said," the producer reveals. "Frank is a perfectionist, and so is Zack. And I think they set the bar pretty high." While the first film featured one surviving Spartan, Canton suggests members of that cast could return, saying, "Never assume anything."

Release date: TBA

MAN OF STEEL

Think McFly Think kindly translated an Omelete.com interview with Brandon Routh in which he expresses hope in taking flight as Superman once again. "The term contract has expired. But if they call me again, [I'd come] back to the character without thinking twice." He also agreed with the interviewers that the "Superman Returns" would have benefited from a few fist fight scenes.

Release date: TBA

THOR

Actor Clifton Collins Jr has nothing to do with the film. Collins was most recently seen as one of the Romulans in "Star Trek." Last month, his name became linked to the film. Talking with The Dead Bolt, the actor says "I have nothing to do with that piece."

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, release date: May 20, 2011

SIN CITY 2

Alexis Bledel tells MTV Splashpage that she has been altered to the completion of the script. "Apparently, [I'm] back because it's a prequel. Because [I'm] supposed to die in the first one. But you don't see it, so maybe she doesn't," she says. Bledel herself has not seen the new script. The film is reportedly based on "A Dame to Kill For," the second Sin City book which happens to take place before the the Marv and Dwight stories that appear in the film "Sin City."

Release date: TBA

IRON MAN 2

Road and Track Magazine has a spy photo of a race car with the Stark Industries logo on it. According to the site, Tony Stark will race in the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique. They also speculate on the engine of the Stark racer.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Release date: May 7, 2010

SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD

Today, Edgar Wright gives us one smart looking photo over at his blog.

Starring Michael Cera and Chris Evans, release date: 2010

THE CROW

Mania.com is reporting the upcoming Crow film is not a "Begins" style reboot. Instead, the film will be 100% new. "[It's] very different from the original - a whole new story about a whole new character," says their source. The film is going to be directed by Stephen Norrington, who has not made a film since 2003's "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen." He also directed the first "Blade" film.

Release date: TBA

WATCHMEN: DIRECTOR'S CUT

Ain't It Cool News has a list of some of the new scenes and alterations to director Zach Snyder's new cut of the film. Consider this spoiler level: red giant. It is more than likely the truth, so proceed with caution if you want to be surprised. One non-specific change their source talks about is the addition of more Rorschach monologue throughout the film.

Starring Jackie Earl Haley, Billy Crudup, on DVD: July 21, 2009
