THE AVENGERS

Jon Favreau spoke with Ireland Online (via Comic Book Movie) about the film, which is odd as "The Avengers" has no director attached. While he is worried mxing the various characters into one film could sink the ship, he also says, "'The Avengers' might be the thing that helps rescue us from the inevitable sequel slump that you get into, because you're throwing everything on its ear."

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

BATMAN 3

It set the Internet ablaze yesterday, so here is a brief mention of the whole Megan Fox/Catwoman thing. It starts with British tabloid, The Sun and their bold declaration: "Megan Fox has signed up to play Catwoman in the next Batman movie." It is false, of course. Until Warner Bros. announces Christopher Nolan and his collaborators have handed in the script, believe no casting rumor.

Release date: TBA

WHITEOUT

Empire has some new photos from the film featuring ice, snow, and flashlights.

Starring Kate Beckinsale, release date: September 11th, 2009

SMALLVILLE

Kryptonsite updates their spoiler page with info on the ninth episode of the upcoming season. Titled "Pandora," it will feature "what's been haunting Lois since the premiere episode and will give Clark insight to what he'll need to do this season to defeat Zod."

New episodes begin: September 25th, 2009

SURROGATES

CBR has Breaking Benjamin's music video "I will not Bow" for the film. Meanwhile, Sci Fi Wire has some new stills from the film, including one really freaky half-robot, half-woman still.

Starring Bruce Willis, release date: September 25th, 2009

BATTLING BOY

While Paul Pope's new graphic novel is still ... sometime away, the project has already been optioned and "Watchmen" screenwriter Alex Tse is working on the script. He tells ScriptPHD, "I think the novel is getting released next year. I'm not sure what percentage [Paul] is done with, but it's in the process. So that's been interesting for both of us, but a lot of fun because he's a great guy and really visionary."

Release date: TBA

PRIEST
