BATMAN BEGINS

Superhero Hype has 55 new photos from the studio, released to whet fans' appetites for the forthcoming DC adaptation. The official Japanese website for the film has launched, and allegedly security was tight at a Tokyo screening of the movie.

ZOOM

No, it's not the Reverse Flash, it's just a note from the Hollywood Reporter that comedy legend Chevy Chase has signed on for the Tim Allen-fueled comedy, based on Jason Lethcoe's graphic novel "Zoom's Academy for the Super Gifted."

SIN CITY 2

According to Comingsoon.net, "Sin City 2" is included for a summer 2006 bow.

GHOST RIDER

Sci Fi Wire caught some quotes from actress Eva Mendes, who appreciates the humor in her co-star Nicolas Cage. "He's so strangely funny, and I love his sense of humor," Mendes said. "[Director Mark Steven Johnson] is funny in a different way, so between both of them and then between me-I'm just obnoxious-we're just always laughing. So it's a really great chemistry on set. It's probably -- no, not probably -- it is the best time I've ever had filming a movie. The actual process has been the best because of the company." When asked about Cage's penchant for improvising takes, Mendes said, "I like that, because it keeps me on my toes, and there's never a dull moment. He seriously is one of the best actors of our time. You see what's on the page, and then you see what he brings to it and the chances that he takes. It's just how he twists stuff. And his choices are so great that he makes it so interesting, and it's great because you don't know what's going to happen. For me it's great, I love it. I've never felt thrown off or anything. He did it to me a few times today, and I was like, 'Cool.'" Her major complaint was not getting to ride on the Hellcycle, saying, ""Can you guys complain about that? Maybe they can add something in."

SUPERMAN

There's a new video blog on BlueTights.net showing a frantic Ma Kent racing around like an Indy car driver. Meanwhile, IESB notes that the film's second unit will be shooting at Dodger Stadium for several days.

TEEN TITANS

Comics Continuum has a rundown on new episodes of the hit Cartoon Network series, which resume June 4th.

TRUST IS THE BIGGEST LIABILITY OF ALL

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, is it just me or does the "Teen Titans" theme song sound kind of like "Secret Agent Man," I think there should be fresh comics reviews online by 7PM EST, and "don't blame me, I'm drunk too!"
