THE WOLVERINE

According to The Playlist, the film will shoot in the Fall. Their source? Hugh Jackman. The actor appeared on CHFI radio in Toronto and said "We shoot in October, so it will probably come out a year after that. That's usually around the timeline." I guess that means a pretty speedy pre-production phase, which now seems standard for "X-Men" pictures.

Release date: 2012?

CONAN THE BARBARIAN

Latino Review has a few new images from the film, including this shot of Ron Perlman as Conan's father:

Release date: August 19th, 2011

DOCTOR STRANGE

Patrick Dempsey explains to IGN his fascination with the character:

Release date: TBA

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

Hannah Marks tells Celebuzz (via Comic Book Movie) a little bit about her character in the film. "I am playing the school nerd, Missy Kallenback, and I have a crush on Spider-Man. But, of course, I don't know he is Spider-Man so I actually have a crush on Peter Parker. So I am mostly swooning over him in it," she says.

Release date: May 28th, 2012

MARVEL SHORTS

A pair of short films featuring Agent Coulson have been filmed and are to be included on the "Thor" and "Captain America" home video releases, according to Film School Rejects. "Depending on how well these are received, more shorts featuring characters from the Marvel universe we haven't seen yet could be ordered up," they write. Anything that makes "Iron Fist" happen sooner is okay by me.

Release date: TBA

G.I. JOE 2: COBRA STRIKES

The good people at Komplicated note that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has begun training to play Roadblock in the film. It is not yet known if the character will offer body massages.

Release date: August 10th, 2012

THE HOBBIT

Elijah Wood talks with The Hollywood Reporter about his return to Middle-Earth and New Zealand. "It feels like I'm going back to a giant family reunion in a way; a lot of the same creative team are involved and a number of the cast are coming back," he says. He also expects to answer questions about the film when he appears at Comic-Con in a few weeks.

Release date: December 14th, 2012 & December 13th, 2013

THE WALKING DEAD

The official AMC blog talks with executive producer Frank Darabont about season two. "We're gonna be dropping anchor at Hershel's Farm for most of the season. Last season was so challenging because it was different locations pretty much every episode," he says. "Here, we're sorta following the template of the comic book and that puts us at Hershel's Farm for a good chunk of the season. Obviously we range out from there, but it's a primary location for the season and that's a terrific advantage really."

Airs: Fall 2011

SHALL WE PLAY A GAME?

"King of Kong" director Seth Gordon has signed on to tackle a remake of "WarGames." He tells The Los Angeles Times that "it's ripe for an update. It's a more plausible chain of events now than it was back then. The source of an international political threat is no longer a nameless faceless country with a different political system. The world has changed so much that that kind of threat could come from a number of places." That's all well and good, Mr. Gordon, but just stay away from fancy camera movies and neon lights. "WarGames" is fondly remembered precisely because it didn't have a stylized look. 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 a "Sneakers" remake.
