THE AVENGERS

Mark Ruffalo tells MTV News a little bit about the Hulk's dynamic in the group:

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

THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN

Collider spotted this new American trailer:

The characters still look a little dead-eyed in the close-ups, but the action looks killer.

Directed by Steven Spielberg, release date: December 21, 2011

KICK-ASS 2: BALLS TO THE WALL

Chloe Moretz tells MTV News that "something" might be coming soon in regards to the sequel:

Release date: TBA

IRON MAN 3

In this odd Access Hollywood clip, Robert Downey Jr. musters up some enthusiasm for the third "Iron Man" film:

This is an akward interview, but at least he's looking foward to "Iron Man 3."

Release Date: May 3rd, 2013

THE CROW (BEGINS)

Spinoff Online reports that the project is once again without a director. "[Juan Carlos] Fresnadillo has been circling Summit Entertainment’s Highlander remake, but it's unclear whether that's the reason for his departure," they write. Previously, Bradley Cooper was signed on to wear the face paint of Eric Draven, but he left due to scheduling conflicts. Like "Akira," this is one of the more troubled comic book projects in the development right now. There have been lawsuits, people fleeing, and the overriding feeling that this movie does not want to be made.

Release date: TBA

ELFQUEST

According to Deadline, British director Joe Ahearne (who helmed the better 2005 "Doctor Who" episodes) has been tapped to rewrite the "Elf Quest" script. Rawson Thurber ("Dodgeball") will direct.

Release date: TBA

MARVEL "PHASE 2"

Marvel Studios Grand Poobah Kevin Feige offers IGN a little bit more info on the second phase of Marvel's Cinematic Universe:

Release date: TBA

KURTZ ON PREQUELS

"Star Wars" producer Gary Kurtz is not a fan of the prequels. The New Yorker offers a clip from the upcoming DVD release of "The People vs. George Lucas" in which Kurtz reveals his thoughts on how those movies turned out. "I have trouble with them on several different levels. I think that technologically they're terrific, they look great, but I'm not a big fan of the stories. And also I'm not sure that it fits together with the original. This is another big argument between fans. Some of the fans like them a lot and think that they all fit together fine, and others don't. I'm actually in the second camp," he says. Around the time "Phantom Menace" came out, Kurtz revealed the "nine episode" outline he was working from in the late 1970s and I don't know if it would've worked any better. Perhaps everyone should've just left the three movies alone. 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 sequel trilogy.
