THE AVENGERS

Our old friend at Bleeding Cool may have initial concept designs for the Hellicarrier. While I won't repost them here, I'll say they almost look more like designs for animation to me. Meanwhile, Chris Hemsworth tells MTV News that he is anticipating the script for the film:

Release date: May 4th, 2012

GREEN LANTERN

Just Jared (via The Daily Blam!) has a number of photos from the Scream Awards, one revealing the look of the Power Battery in the film:

Meanwhile, Collider caught up with Geoff Johns outside and asked a few GL related questions:

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

THE HOBBIT

After losing a director, a studio bankruptcy, a fire, and other craziness, "The Hobbit" finally has a greenlight with director Peter Jackson. According to Heat Vision, the films are set to begin production in February 2011. They also note the Union issue has not been resolved and may lead to the production leaving New Zealand, where Jackson made "The Lord of the Rings."

Release date: 2012

WOLVERINE 2

According to Deadline, "Darren Aronofsky's deal to direct 20th Century Fox's 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2' is close enough that discussion has turned to shooting the sound stage portions of the film in New York so the filmmaker and Hugh Jackman don't have to inconvenience their families. A March start date is being eyed so that Aronofsky has time to open Black Swan and be available for the inevitable awards season obligations. When the New York scenes are completed, they'll head to Japan to shoot the bulk of the Christopher McQuarrie-scripted movie." Keep in mind, there has still been no official announcement from the studio.

Release date: 2012?

SUPERMAN (BEGINS)

Various sites are pointing to French site filmsactu.com as the source of this quote, translated by Collider: "The film will focus on early days of Superman, so there will be no links with other films. This is not a remake then. Similarly, although I still can not talk about the script, I can assure you that this new Superman will not be based on a comic book in particular." Very interesting ...

Release date: 2012?

THE WALKING DEAD

The Los Angeles Times spoke with Frank Darabont about the show. "I didn't want to try to compete on that level because it's been done and done very well, either as a serious film or as a comedy. We can name those really great ones. But to do it as a television series, to really invest in those characters over the long term, that struck me as a pretty exciting notion," he says.

Airdate: October

UNDER THE WEATHER

And with some rainy weather in Southern California, I find myself a little ill. I'm still not sure if its an acutal cold or a serious allergic reaction to a wonderful cat during my time up North, but today is a day fo taking it easy. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know! Take cit, 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 a doctor's visit.
