SMALLVILLE

TV Guide.com has the first look at actor Michael Shanks in Nth Metal Wings as Hawkman in the upcoming JSA two-hour epic episode of the show. TV Guide also talks to the actor and reveals the episode will air on February 5, instead of the previously reported Janurary airdate. "There’s a lot of referencing to Shayera/ Hawkgirl throughout as his one true love, given the fact that these two have a tremendous history as thousand year-old reincarnated beings who continue to find each other lifetime after lifetime. And we will learn where she is now," says Shanks.

New episode: Friday

THOR

USA Weekend interviewed "Chuck" star Zachary Levi, who revealed he did have a part in the movie, but had to pass because of the show's exteneded episode order. The interesting thing here is the role he was meant to play. "Levi was cast as Fandral, one of Thor’s Warriors Three," writes USA Weekend.

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

NINJA ASSASSIN

Another clip, this time from MTV News:

Starring Rain, release date: November 25th, 2009

SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD

First another photo from the editing bay of Edgar Wright. Second, actor Jason Schwartzman talks up the first twenty minutes of the film to MTV News:

Starring Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, release date: 2010

THE HOBBIT

Ain't It Cool News has a rumor that, for once, I hope proves true. According to them, actor Brian Cox is a lead contender for one of the dwarf roles in the film. It is unknown which dwarf the actor might play, but other sites are guessing the former Hannibal Lector will play Thorin Oakensheild, should he appear at all in the films.

Release date: TBA

GOD DAMNED APPLES

Over the weekend, actor Edward Woodward died. You might remember him in "Hot Fuzz" or the original version of "The Wicker Man" or even in the 80s CBS drama, "The Equalizer." He was a great actor and one of the primary reasons "The Wicker Man" works. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, 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 the next one to go.
