BLADE PREQUEL

According to Comics2Film, Stephens Norrington and Dorff are reportedly collaborating on a prequel trilogy focusing on Dorff's Deacon Frost character. Following up on a report late last year, Norrington says the project is "not exactly how the article describes but close."

Release Date: TBA

WATCHMEN: DIRECTOR'S CUT

An old friend tells us the "Watchmen: Director's Cut" has appeared online in the usual nefarious places. Being a Blu-Ray owner and movie snob, I reply, "why would I want a compressed version without extras, when I can have it on 1080p?"

On DVD/Blu-Ray: July 21

G.I. JOE

Superhero Hype has received the Japanese trailer for the film. Remarkably like the US trailer, it does feature an extra dose of a certain unmasked villain and an offer for a "Joe" related DVD. Just a small slice of how marketing differs overseas.

Starring Christopher Eccleston, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Release Date: August 7, 2009

PROOF

More information on the Image Comics adaptation comes to us from MTV Splashpage. They spoke with co-creator Alex Grecian, who confirms it will be an animated series. He is not sure if Samuel L. Jackson will be taking on the lead role of John Prufrock. "I haven't spoken personally to Sam Jackson, but I'm told that 'Proof' is one of his favorite comic book series ever and he's excited to be involved," he says.

Release Date: TBA

THOR

Continuing yesterday's theme of "If there is one certainty in making Marvel movies, it is the presence of Stan Lee." Nuke the Fridge is reporting Lee will appear in Thor as an "Asgardian." Expect him to be featured in a crowd shot. Nuke the Fridge believes this confirms an Asgard-centric script, with Earth only appearing at the conclusion.

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

SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD

It would appear director Edgar Wright spent his Monday at the movies, if this picture here is any indication.

Starring Michael Cera and Chris Evans, release date: 2010

IRON MAN 2

Another Stark Logo appears, courtesy of IESB.

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