ELEKTRA

Comics Continuum talked with Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige, who told them that Elektra was a "go" for filming this summer, during a hiatus on Jennifer Garner's hit show "Alias." "We've had a number of great writers come in and work on it and we're talking to directors," Feige said. When asked about what sort of antagonists Garner might face, Feige replied, "She doesn't have the sort of spectacular, over-the-top, costumed, made-up mutated villains," he said. "She has what we believe to be very scary, very sleek, very organized and very deadly adversaries. The tone of the film will be fun and adventurous, but the villains always fit their heroes. And Elektra doesn't wear a mask or hide her face. It will be unique villains that I think people will recognize and be very excited to see."

COMIC BOOK: THE MOVIE

Mark Hamill's love letter to fanboys, "Comic Book: The Movie" has launched its trailer for the world to see. Daniel DeFabio also told us that LA area fans can get a look at the film next week. And, in case you missed it, CBR News talked with Hammil yesterday about the movie.

TINTIN

SUPERMAN

Moviehole has a spy report that says Charlie's Angels" director McG may be on the way out and "Troy" helmer Wolfgang Peterson may be on the way in. There's no official word on it anywhere on the net.
