GREEN LANTERN

According to Geoff John's Twitter page, the film wrapped principle photography on Friday. Meanwhile, Variety reports screenwriter Micheal Goldenberg, who did rewrites on the film, is on board to script the sequel.

Starring Ryan Reynolds, release date: June 17th, 2011

SPIDER-MAN (BEGINS)

The Playlist hears tell of actor Christoph Waltz in connection with the Spider-Man reboot's mystery villain. Of course, they put a big grain of salt tag on it. So, you know ... it could be the work of Mysterio.

Release date: May 28th, 2012

NEMESIS

Our old friend at Bleeding Cool broke the news Friday that director Tony Scott is taking on Mark Millar's "Nemesis." Well, scooped anyway. This is apparently the big announcment Millar had been teasing all of last week.

Release date: TBA

BATMAN 3

Pietro Filipponi at Comic Book Movie hears the film may actually shoot in New Orleans. "Executives from Warner Bros want to take advantage of the monumental tax incentives the city has to offer for Christopher Nolan's third Batman installment. It appears the studio's relationship with the New Orleans filming office is at it's peak and neither party wishes for it to end when Green Lantern enters post production in Los Angeles next week," he writes.

Release date: July 20th, 2012

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

Director Matthew Vaughn tells The Los Angeles Times Hero Complex Blog he is doing the film because the superhero genre has been "mined to death." He goes onto to say "in some cases the quality control is not what it's supposed to be." For reasons that I can't go into, I'm just going to laugh ever so villainously. Considering the slate of movies coming next summer, I'd say the superhero movie is about to evolve beyond its ground level beginnings. Still, I quite enjoyed "Kick-Ass" and look forward to what Vaughn will do with the X-Men.

Release date: June 3rd, 2011

SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD

Our pals at Spinoff Online have these fantastic Lucas Lee movie posters glimpsed in the film. My favorite is this one:

Starring Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, release date: August 13th 2010

THE BOYS

Director Adam McKay talked with ComingSoon.net/Superhero Hype about taking on the Garth Ennis/Darrick Robertson comic. "They already have a script for it and it was a pretty faithful adaptation. It's all in sorta how you shoot it as far as the violence goes and the sex and obviously, it's gotta be an R and it also gotta have that swing and a groove to it. If it gets too gory, it's a little bit of a tricky thing, but yeah, I look forward to it. A lot of the decisions are going to be about tone and visuals," he said.

Release date: TBA

NICK FURY

During Comic-Con, MovieWeb spoke with writer and "Castle" creator Andrew W. Marlowe about his script for a Fury solo project and the possible hurdles in getting that film off the ground.

The look on his face when he says, "It's expensive!" is priceless.

Release date: TBA

BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD

In one of my last reports from Comic-Con for CBR, script editor Michael Jelenic talks about being ambushed by a fan during the "Brave and the Bold" panel. "Online, there's a lot discussion about that movie; whether or not it pushes the feminist themes that are 'backwards.' So there's a vocal minority that isn't happy with the way Wonder Woman was depicted in that movie," he explained. "So that guy came up in the middle of a 'Brave and the Bold' panel and he went on for five minutes, talking about how bad it was." The story editor recalled his quip to the fan: "My answer was, 'I hate women.' He was angry at that."

New episode: Friday

NO ORDINARY FAMILY

Here at CBR, we also have a look at the "No Ordinary Family" panel at Comic-Con. The panel featured a screening of the pilot, so beware of spoilers. Following the screening, star Michael Chiklis explained why he took on the project. "I was looking for something different, something fresh, something exciting," he said. Chiklis previously stared in "The Shield."

Airdate: Fall

YOUNG JUSTICE

And in what I'm pretty sure is my last dispatch from Comic-Con 2010, I talked with producers Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti of "Young Justice" about their upcoming Cartoon Network series. "Every episode - except for the two-part pilot - stands alone and tells a complete story, but we've got a lot of arcing and continuity throughout the twenty-six episodes and it builds to climaxes at various points in the season and then we'll go out with a huge bang at the end of the season," said Weisman of the show's structure.

Release date: TBA

A CHANCE TO BEGIN AGAIN

It's been a pretty big month of travel and assignments, what with Comic-Con and [redacted], but I think I enjoy the pace and the much improved sleep as a result. Will I be able to adjust back to a slowdown, I wonder? 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, ready for the future threat of an actual day off.
