WOLVERINE 2

While Wolverine heads for Japan, what of Victor Creed? MTV Splash Page spoke with actor Liev Schreiber about a possible appearance in the sequel. "There's been some smatterings of conversation about it, but nothing concrete yet," says the actor. However, he does have an avenue he would like to explore with the character. "I'd like to find out how my Victor became Tyler Mane's Victor [of the first 'X-Men']."

SUPERMAN/BATMAN: PUBLIC ENEMIES

If one Metallo wasn't enough for you, IESB has an interview with actor John C. McGinley. The star of "Scrubs" is taking on the Kryponite heart in the upcoming DC Animated Universe film based on the Loeb/McGuinness story. "Well, of course, it is big fat privilege to work with these characters - and it is really fun now with Hi-Def. It just kind of jumps off the screen, and the transfers (to Hi-Def) are so beautiful now and perfect. It's completely thrilling because the state of the art has exceeded anybody's wildest expectations," says the actor.

Featuring the voices of Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy, release date: Septemeber 29th, 2009

THE AVENGERS

Scarlett Johansson tells Ireland Online (via Comic Book Movie) that she's ready to suit up as the Black Widow for "The Avengers" and, perhaps a spin-off? She tells the site, "We see that she does in the comics and certainly she is a big part of 'The Avengers'. I don't know if that is where it's going to go but she is definitely a big part of 'The Avengers.'" Johansson is reportedly signed to several films for Marvel.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., release date: May 4th, 2012

SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD

Today's set pic from the blog of director Edgar Wright features a lovely photo of Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona Flowers. Also, it's blog time as the cast plays with hula hoops:

Starring Michael Cera and Chris Evans, release date: 2010

IT'S OH, SO, QUIET

Another quiet day in the world of films based on comic books. The development execs must be resting. Consider the things we still don't know. Who will play Sinestro in "Green Lantern?" Just what, or who, will "The Avengers" be fighting? Will Neil Gaiman ever get to make "The High Cost of Living? If you discover the answer to any of these questions or anything interesting, weird, or sad, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours! Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya bracing for the future threat of 7.1 surround sound.
