HEROES

NBC Universal has provided us with an image from this coming Monday's episode which will feature a kiss between Claire and her college roommate Gretchen in an episode they just had to call "Hysterical Blindness:"

Now airing new episodes

WOLVERINE 2

Actor Hugh Jackman appeared on Katie Couric's new web show, @katiecouric. She admits she does not get the Wolverine movies, but asks Jackman if he is making another one. His answer is a little more coy than previous comments he has made:

Release date: 2012?

THE FLASH

Following on yesterdays news concerning the departure of producer Charles Roven from the film, current draft screenwriter Dan Mazeau contacted IGN to let them know everything else is still on track. "I'm still writing the script. Geoff Johns is still consulting. Flash fans have no cause for concern, and -- IMO -- lots to be excited about," says the writer. Considering these comments, it is entirely possible Roven has been off the project since August, when Johns was first announced as a consultant.

Release date: TBA

PREDATORS

According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Adrian Brody has joined the cast of tough hombres. Topher Grace is also "in negotiations" to appear in the film. So, maybe not every person transported to the Predator planet is a tough hombre, but THR also confirms Walt Goggins from "The Shield" will be in the picture. So between him and Danny Trejo, there's plenty of toughness to spread around.

Directed by Nimrod Antal, release date: July 9th, 2010

300 2

While Gerard Butler loved being King Leonidas, he tells MTV News he does not know "how real" the sequel is. He goes on to say, "I think that if the first one was a stand-alone, as a one-off, there’s no bad thing in that."

Release date: TBA

THE LOSERS

Entertainment Weekly has posted a first look picture of Zoe Saldana all dressed up as Aisha. EW calls the character a "mysterious South American hellion."

Starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, release date: April 16th, 2010

WHERE EVER YOU GO, THERE YOU ARE

Today is a "Buckaroo Bonzai" kind of day, so I'll be watching that movie with a few friends later today. Comic books influence that film in subtle ways and, in fact, that influence over a lot of movies from the 1980s made so many of them great. Nowadays, the comics no longer hide and get to be the films themselves. If any of you discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, 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 evil, pure and simple, from the Eighth Dimension.
