THE AVENGERS

Here at CBR, we have the trailer for the film, in all its multi-character glory:

That looks ... not bad.

Directed by Joss Whedon & starring everybody, release date: May 4th, 2012

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

Photos of Jim Gordon (as portrayed by Gary Oldman) have emerged thanks to the lads at Comic Book Movie and their steely-eyed watch of the Twitter:

The black and white image has the look of a newspaper photo. That's pretty cool.

Release date: July 20th, 2012

DREDD

According to Spinoff Online, director Pete Travis and writer/producer Alex Garland offered this statement to The Los Angeles Times about the rumors concerning Travis's persona-non-grata status in the editing room:

During all stages of the filmmaking, 'Dredd' has been a collaboration between a number of dedicated creative parties. From the outset we decided on an unorthodox collaboration to make the film. This situation has been misinterpreted. To set the record straight, Pete was not fired and remains a central part of the collaboration, and Alex is not seeking a co-director credit. We are all extremely proud of the film we have made, and respectfully suggest that it is judged on viewing when its released next year.

Well, that sure clears things up. I'll be sure to judge the film, respectfully, next year.

Release date: September 21st, 2012

THE WOLVERINE

Hugh Jackman tells MTV News that a possible R rating is still being discussed for the sequel:

Release date: 2012?

R.I.P.D.

Collider spotted this YouTube video of a staged car crash on the set of the Ryan Reynolds' actioner:

Release date: June 28th, 2013

UNVEIL THE KRAKEN!

Could the Kraken have been a real animal? Researcher Mark McMenamin believes fossil evidence at the Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park in Nevada suggests an animal that used the same suction-cup pattern of the modern octopus. According to the press release, "The proposed Triassic kraken, which could have been the most intelligent invertebrate ever, arranged the vertebral discs in double line patterns, with individual pieces nesting in a fitted fashion as if they were part of a puzzle." While the term "Kraken" first appeared in the 18th Century as a name for a sea-beast inhabiting the North Atlantic, it has come to mean a colossal octopus with ties to the Greek myth of Perseus. I suppose an actual giant cephalopod isn't the craziest idea as we've known about much larger prehistoric sharks and dolphin-like creatures for some time. Also, the giant squid turned out to be real, so maybe some day science will allow me the chance to raise a Kraken as a pet. 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 hideous veterinarian bills.
