SPIDER-MAN 3

Make with the pumpkin bombs -- according to Latino Review, "'Anonymous' tells us the following: 'Yes the Sandman will be in Spider-Man 3 but he's not the only villain. And no it isn't Black Cat like some people were suggesting. It will be SANDMAN AND HOBGOBLIN.'"

SMALLVILLE

Lex Luthor's handheld must be even less secure than Paris Hilton's -- Kryptonsite has more hacked email from the supervillain-to-be's private Verizon account (you'd think he'd have changed his password, or changed providers, by now).

GHOST RIDER

Fresh from the land down under, Superhero Hype has another set report about the Nicolas Cage vehicle. "The Hellcycle was there, though they had it covered with a grey tarp," one spy wrote, "luckily there was a little wind so every now and then the tarp would blow up and reveal the bike (tarp goes up, "Aaaaah;" tarp goes down, "Awwww") ... there was rubble and broken concrete all around where the Hellcycle was positioned. There were a whole bunch of American police cars and one motorcycle there, along with a couple of SWAT vans parked on the side of the road. The SWAT vans were labelled 'Special Weapons Attack Team.' They did a few takes of the extras ducking, most throwing their arms over their heads etc and yelling. They then got a bunch of guys in American police and SWAT uniforms to basically do the same but with a loud bang that blew dust over them."

HEROES ANONYMOUS

According to Sci Fi Wire, they're developing a small screen adaptation of "Heroes Anonymous, a live-action series based the comic book created by Scott Gimpel and Bill Morrison which follows a group of 20-something aspiring superheroes who form a support group to help them discover their own identity while carving out their secret identity. The series will be executive-produced by Lawrence Bender ('Kill Bill,' 'Pulp Fiction'), Kevin Brown ('Legend of Earthsea,' 'Roswell') and Karl Schaefer ('The Dead Zone'). Gimpel and Morrison will write the pilot."

THAT'S A WRAP

Long week, eh? Everybody in the US, you'd better have your tax info in today, or have filed an extension, or it's no soup for you! (Yes, I dropped mine at the post office last night, so I gloat) Anyway, if you have the scoop on anything related to comic book movies, TV adaptations or just want to give us a briefcase full of cash, no questions asked, drop us a line and let's coordinate. You can choose an alias if you'd like, or be mentioned by name -- we honor requests for anonymity. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu saying thanks for your time and indulgence, look for fresh comics reviews online by 7PM EST or so, and "don't blame me, I'm drunk too!"
