BATMAN BEGINS

The unofficial Christopher Nolan website has an interview with Larry Holden, who's rumored to be playing Carlton Fisk in the film. Holden said, "Well, all I can say is that yes, I have read the script, yes, I have flown to London several times to talk with Chris about things, and yes, I will probably be going back there very very soon to discuss things further ... But I have not been cast in the film, and all the talk on the internet about the script or what have you is way off base. I mean, this is a huge movie, with a lot at stake, so these guys made sure to think out every possible scenario when it came to potential script leaks, etcetera, and they came up with a fool proof plan -- one that no other film has gone to the trouble or expense to work out in advance. And, because of that, they have the world eating out of their hands right now. I mean, they haven't allowed anybody to spoil anything for their audience, which seems to consist of millions of folks who really really care about 'Batman' and this film. And I mean that. You shouldn't believe what you read, and I don't care which so-called 'Batman' expert has said what or will say what. They are dead wrong about ninety nine percent of it all."

JUSTICE LEAGUE

Bruce Timm talked to the Birmingham News about his work on seasons two and three. The basic storyline (of 'Starcrossed') has been in the works for a long time," Timm said. "We knew we'd do this story, and we've had a long, gradual, slow buildup in the first two seasons."

THE CARDINAL

John Martin emailed us to report that the Christian-based superhero film will be released directly to DVD on June 1, 2004.
