FANTASTIC FOUR

Promotional efforts for the film may have gone a bit too far -- the Defamer (scroll down a bit, you'll see it) has an image of the FF's logo inverted in the Los Angeles-area skies. Woops.

Meanwhile, things went much better at the press conference, and Comics Continuum has an edited transcript of what went on. IESB has an expanded photo gallery of the press conference, with some different shots. There's also photos (scroll down) of huge statues of the characters erected in Singapore. Hoo hah!

GREEN HORNET

According to Moviehole, "it's not looking good for 'Green Hornet' at the moment -- I guess you can say it's been put on hold ... The film's writer, Kevin 'Not so Silent' Smith, recently told About.com where the film's at: ''Green Hornet,' I'm not sure where it is now. I don't know if it went with Harvey and Bob or if it's staying at Disney. But there's a script out there and I guess whoever has it looks for a director next.' More chance of seeing the long-gestating 'Fletch Won' first I think."

SMALLVILLE

There's spoilers for season five's second episode, "Mortal," over at Kryptonsite.

HULK 2

A scooper at Superhero Hype caught actor Eric Bana in Las Vegas, and the actor said the gamma-powered sequel would be happening next year, saying that he was in but Jennifer Connelly was not.

BATMAN 2 & 3

Batman On Film is reporting a rumor about the next two sequels filming back to back, with storylines involving the Joker and Two-Face. There's also a fresh interview with actor Christian Bale at Wild About Movies.

X-MEN 3

Finally, Superhero Hype has a rumor that "Sin City" actor Nick Stahl will play Warren Worthinton III (better known to some as Angel) in the next mutant-themed sequel.
