THOR

Superhero Hype provides translation for this Swedish news site (itself a repost from another Swedish news outlet called TT Spektra) which reports the casting of Stellan Skarsgård. Unfortunately, the actor could not reveal what role he will be playing. Except a formal announcement from stateside trade papers soon.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, release date: May 20th, 2011

GREEN LANTERN

Ryan Reynolds appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last week. The host asked him about the film. Reynolds mentioned he is "four or five months" from shooting. Latino Review was kind enough to set up a clip from Fallon's show concerning Reynolds's superhero futures.

Directed by Martin Campbell, release date: June 17th, 2011

CLA$$WAR

According to Variety, Mandeville Films has picked up the rights to the Com.x series. Variety describes the project as "as a political thriller that revolves around a super-soldier known as "the American," who discovers the sinister truth of the government program that created him and is forced to take on the rest of his super-powered team." MTV News initially broke the story late Friday during Long Beach Comic-Con.

Release date: TBA

IRON MAN 2

Entertainment Weekly has a new photo from the film featuring a suited-up Tony in a donut shop.

Directed by Jon Favreau, release date: May 7th, 2010

PREDATORS

Comingsoon.net reports actor Walton Goggins, best known as Shane Vendrell on "The Shield," has been cast in the film. This is an unconfirmed report, but considering what is already known about the film, Goggins is a good fit for the film which pits six ruthless people against a planet of Predators.

Directed by Nimrod Antal, release date: TBA

ASTRO BOY

Collider has several clips from the film:

Directed by David Bowers, release date: October 23rd, 2009
