X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

Showbiz 411 reports Michael Fassbender has chosen Magento over the unnamed "Spider-Man" villain. Granted, that's still not an official pronouncement and maybe the unnamed "Spider-Man" role was Mysterio.

Release date: June 3rd, 2011

BATMAN: UNDER THE RED HOOD

Here at CBR, we have a clip for the direct-to-video release:

Release date: Summer 2010

THE WALKING DEAD

The Walking Dead Podcast points out that IMDB lists actor Adrian Kali Turner has joined the cast as Duane Jones. "Duane is one of the first people that Rick meets in the comic. The speculation over whether the script had been rewritten to not include Morgan and Duane has turned out to be false," they write. Yes, I will read the book, soon.

Airdate: October

THE SHADOW

David Slade tells MTV News he is not directing the film:

I'm pretty sure I reported on this before, but it's nice to have video where the man just calls it "lies." That's a pretty adamant pronouncement. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go see Slade's new film, "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse."

Release date: TBA

HELLBOY 3

Guillemro Del Toro tells Collider another Hellboy film would happen after his next film at the earliest. Granted, he doesn't know what that next film will be. Collider posted a long video with the director. For some reason, it sounds like they're using rebreathers, but it could be a technical glitch on my end:

Release date: TBA

THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES

According to 24 Frames, producer John Davis has picked up the rights to Ray Bradbury's classic, "The Martian Chronicles." Davis also produced, "I, Robot" with Will Smith, so some Bradbury purists maybe uneasy.

Release date: TBA

HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN

Ain't It Cool News reports the film has completed filming. They also link to a recent video the team produced:

Release date: TBA

DOCTOR WHO

Friday means a final "Doctor Who" clips courtesy of Doctorwhotvuk.co.uk for the last episode of the season, "The Big Bang:"

>Airs: Saturday in the UK, July 10th in the States

WEEKEND GETAWAY

I do have a phone interview this weekend, but afterward it's time for that Loverboy track and a rum drink ... and the weekend! I think this weekend means a screening of the Room with 1000 other screaming weirdos and director Tommy Wiseau. Or, maybe I'll just stay in. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet 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 waiting in that "Room" line.
