As we reported here at CBR yesterday, the sequel is set for a summer 2013 release. Sadly, director Kenneth Branagh will not be returning to direct. I think his sensibility was an important piece to making the film work, but with the second outing presumably being a more Earth-bound affair, a new director might be a good idea. I suggest John Milius, the director of the original "Conan The Barbarian."
Starring Chris Hemsworth, release date: July 26, 2013
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
The lads at Comic Book Movie are watching the Twitter feeds closely for any leaked info on the film. Today, they hit paydirt with this little tweet from a boom operator: "'The Dark Knight Rises': Inside Info, they are Building 2 Attack Helicopters in the same design as the Bat Mobile from The Dark Knight! BOOM" I bet they come in black. Meanwhile, another CBM user notes this page organizing extras for a football scene to be shot in Pittsburgh.
Release date: July 20th, 2012

According to Bleeding Cool, Fox has released an official pot synopsis: "The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery." Ah yes, that's how you refrain from spoilers. Bravo.

Collider dusted off the trailer for the early 90s version of Cap that will soon be available as a special edition DVD:
Fun fact about this movie: star Matt Salinger is in fact the son of noted writer and recluse J.D. Salinger.

Wow. Today marks the beginning of my third year as master and commander of the Reel. It's been pretty fun evolving with the day's headlines.

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 year to come.
