SPIDER-MAN (BEGINS)

Marie Claire (via Superhero Hype) has a few more photos from the stunt on Grand Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles. One interesting photo shows what Spidey does when he gets to that truck:

I suppose it's kind of obvious, but all the videos from the scene cut out before this moment.

Release date: May 28th, 2012

GREEN LANTERN

A while back, I said looking at tie-toy previews is not unlike reading tea leaves. They can offer an extra portal into the movie of which they're a part. They can reveal the look of a key character or, sometimes, confirm a rumored set piece. Yesterday, Heat Vision got in the act by looking at the "Green Lantern" toy preview for the upcoming Toy Fair show next month. Here's a look at some of the items.

According to the article, the ring toy is a projector, which can cast the GL logo "over 50 feet." Is it possible Colossal Cannon and the minigun accessory accompanying the Hal Jordan action figure have a place in the film? Maybe. Keep in mind how many "Batman Returns" tie-in toys were actually inspired by scenes in the film.

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

GHOST RIDER 2: SPIRITS OF VENGEANCE

Superhero Hype pulled a few recent and interesting images from the Marvel Movies! Facebook page. While the shot of Johnny's new bike is cool, I'm a sucker for anything with Nic Cage in it:

Release date: February 17th, 2012

BATMAN LIVE!

Bleeding Cool snaped a few photos of the assembled would-be Jokes, Harleys, and Batmen trying out for a part in the show yesterday:

There's even video of the event thanks to The Telegraph:

Update: I've had reports that the embedded video autoplays as soon as it loads. I've removed it to preserve your reading environment and the right to watch it when you see fit. Just click on the link if you want to see hopefully Jokers try out.

Opens: July 2011 in the UK, 2012 in the US

WONDER WOMAN

As our pals at Spinoff Online reported yesterday, feature film director McG is rumored to be the front runner to direct the pilot episode written by David. E. Kelley. McG is no stranger to television, producing such shows as "Supernatual" and "Human Target." He also directed the pilot for "Chuck." The Spinoff article also mentions actress Lake Bell is trying to make her wish to play Diana known by discussing it with E! Online. She points out a key feature of the Amazon's physique is her built arms.

Airdate: TBA

THE CAPE

In Michael Ausiello's most recent "Ask Ausiello" column at TVLine, he mentions the title character might be getting some unwanted romantic attention. "Things could get a bit circus freaky for Vince when Raia (played by Izabella Miko) grows ever curious about just what lies beneath his cape," writes Ausiello.

Airs: Mondays

HUMAN TARGET

Target419 has a gallery of images from the season finale, "Marshall Pucci." There may be spoilers contained within the images, so proceed with caution. Here's a fairly safe image to start with:

Airs: Wednesdays

SMALLVILLE

Here at CBR, we have a preview clip of Friday's new episode, "Collateral."

Airs: January 29th, 2011

BOOKENDINGS

A few days ago, Reeler Jon wrote me suggesting the rumored bookends for "The Hobbit" may not take place in Rivendell. He notes Sean Austin has not been announced as returning to play Sam and writes, "There is only one place that I can think of where you could have Frodo, Gandalf, Elrond, Galadriel, and perhaps Legolas together, without Sam Gamgee being nearby. That's the ship sailing for the Grey Havens. Is it possible that they ask the re-invigorated Bilbo to recount the tale that led to his discovery of the Ring?" It's certainly possible. It's also an intriguing setting for the bookends to occur. While Rivendell is a known location, the interior of the White Ship is not. Still, it's fun to debate this sort of stuff and I'll encourage it. 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 "The Hobbit" in Blu-Ray.
