GREEN LANTERN

In a CQ article about the rise of Ryan Reynolds's career, the actor talks a little bit about his first supehero movie bid. The actor refers to his "fantasy dancing jammies" -- the grey motion tracking suit which will be replaced with the GL uniform when the movie hits theaters. He calls wearing that suit in the New Orleans summer "like shooting an entire movie inside Alec Baldwin."

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

SPIDER-MAN (BEGINS)

Actor Andrew Garfield gives the Associated Press a best guess as to what his training will actually be for the film. ""We're just talking about where we want to go with it and what kind of body shape it should be. What the skill set should be," he says. "I know I'm going to be doing a lot of flexibility training and a lot of strength training, because I have to swing and stuff. I'm just guessing, but it's all kind of early stages."

Release date: May 28th, 2012

DREDD

According to Variety, the film is already a winner in pre-sale deals across foreign markets. "In five days, IM Global has sold the pic to a raft of major territories including Universum for Germany; Aurum for Spain; Icon for Australia; Alliance for Canada and CP Media for Russia. Other sales include eOne for Benelux, IDC for Latin America and Svensk for Scandinavia," they write. "Over the weekend, IM Global struck a hefty $7 million deal for the futuristic pic with Blighty distrib Entertainment. U.S. buyers likewise are circling "Dredd" and a domestic deal is expected to be closed within the week." The bulk of the deals occurred at the Toronto International Film Festival which is not known for these sorts of pre-sale deals. Typically, companies come to Toronto with finished films looking for distribution.

Release date: TBA

LOCKE & KEY

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci tell Ed Gross a little about what drew them to the series. "It's not often that you read a graphic novel where you can imagine dialogue that's in the novel going right to the script. That's a gift," says Orci. "[It's] a story about a family trying to repair itself after suffering major trauma – and then, add to that the idea of a haunted house with an endless set of keys that open up different powers and abilities, and it just felt like something we'd be first in line to watch," adds Kurtzman.

Release date: TBA

DEADPOOL

Ryan Reynolds talked with The Los Angeles Time Geoff Boucher about the film. "[The script is] a nasty piece of work. It's just based in so much emotional filth, completely. It's like 'Barfly' if it were a superhero movie. It sort of treads into the world of an emotionally damaged person.  I always say that Deadpool is a guy in a highly militarized shame spiral…. It's so different than the superhero movies to date, it departs so far from that," says the actor. "He's the funniest guy you'll ever meet, too, and for me that's exciting but it's not as hard as capturing that moral flexibility, which  is so important. He hasn't really experienced the full spectrum of human emotion the way most people do."

Release date: TBA

COWBOY BEBOP

Keanu Reeves tells Collider the film may just be too damned expensive to ever film. "I haven't heard anything back. They turned in the script and it was very expensive. I don't know if they're going to…it would cost, like, half a billion dollars to make that script. So, I don’t know where it's at right now," he says. If it doesn't happen soon, Reeves will age out of the part ... though I suppose he could make an interesting Jet Black.

Release date: TBA

THE WALKING DEAD

Frank Darabont tells MTV News of characters he can't wait to introduce into the series:

Premieres: Halloween

SMALLVILLE

Here at CBR, we have several photos released by the CW to promote next week's season premiere, this one is most intriguing to me:

Returns: September 24th, 2010

THE STARS MY DESTINATION

I still have a 'Starman' Omnibus to read. It was my favorite series of the 90s and I've neglected my copy of Volume 4. I've even lost track of the release schedule for the Omnibus editions. I'll try to get some reading of that done today. 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 my "Hellboy" backlog.
