THE BATMAN

There's a rumor floating around on the Legions of Gotham message boards that the animated series will see the addition of the Boy Wonder now that "Teen Titans" is headed the way of "Static Shock." Their post said, "hearing from a few reputable sources now that since we're getting a season four, and since Titans was indeed cancelled... that we WILL be seeing a new version of the boy wonder... ROBIN!"

PAINKILLER JANE

Comics Continuum conducted a short but sweet email interview with actress Emmanuelle Vaugier about her upcoming Sci Fi debut where she jokingly claims Jimmy Palmiotti can't behave himself and that she'd love to do a series.

SPIDER-MAN 3

According to the Hollywood Reporter, "Sam Raimi's 'Spider-Man 3,' which doesn't arrive until May 2007, is heading toward a price tag north of $250 million."

Meanwhile, there's casting information on starlet Christina Cindrich's role as "Lab Technician" over at the Internet Movie Database, and this PDF file states that scouting for locations is currently going on in New York with filming taking place there from May until September 2006.

V FOR VENDETTA

Despite the fact that most of us won't get a look until March, Harry Knowles of Ain't It Cool News has seen the Vertigo adaptation and we can't know if they sent strippers to his hotel room or anything but he seems pretty pleased. "I was not prepared for 'V FOR VENDETTA.' This is the most intense cinematic cry for Anarchy since 'A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.' They made the comic. Alan Moore is a b**ch for even thinking of b**ching about this. It is f**king PERFECT! When you see them promoting it as UNCOMPROMISED VISION. That's absolutely right. This thing doesn't give two shakes of a pecker what the modern world is going to think. THEY NAILED IT! You never see V's face. The voice -- PERFECT. Natalie Portman -- BRILLIANT. Everybody PERFECT. Adrian Biddle's last film as DP is a revelation and a revolution!"

BLADE

Astute viewers may have caught a commercial for the blood-soaked series during the Video Game Awards, and people are talking about what they saw here.

SMALLVILLE

Mmm, fresh spoilers over at Kryptonsite for the 100th "somebody is gonna die" episode, "Reckoning." They've also got a rumor about another one of DC's men of steel coming to Kansas. Finally, of course, screen captures to tease us for what's coming in January.

TEEN TITANS

Superhero Report has screen captures from the recent episode "Revved Up." Comics Continuum also has network descriptions of what could be the last three episodes of the youth-centric show.

X-MEN 3

According to Music From The Movies John Powell will compose the music for the mutant minded movie for his first time working with Brett Ratner.

ANEDGE HIRAK RICHARD PRYOR

Numerous outlet for the AP news wire have reported about the death of actor/comedian Richard Pryor, who played Gus Gorman in "Superman III." Our condolences to his family on their loss.

SANDY, CAN WE ROLL THAT CLIP?

Here's where you get in on the action. Did you see a link we didn't catch? Have you snuck into a closed movie set, and have inside data? Maybe your cousin is dating somebody who knows something, and they had to tell you? Whatever it is, we wanna know it all -- fire off an email and let us know whether you want your name used or your contributions to geekdom to go down anonymously. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is novelist/reviewer/karaoke host/all-around lunatic Hannibal Tabu saying thanks for your time and indulgence, I don't know why they skipped the end of November comics reviews and put the more recent ones up but whatever, and [tagline sent back to development hell until something hipper can be dreamed up].
