X-MEN 3

Superhero Hype has a great new photo from the movie, showing a certain Multiple Man taking a meeting with Pyro, Mystique and the Master of Magnetism himself.

Speaking of photos, the XVerse has a fun new photo of Mama McCoy's bouncing baby boy in a familiar position. They also have another interview with producer Lauren Shuler Donner and another new photo of everybody's favorite Canucklehead.

Finally, a fan caught a photo of the new banner showing up in cineplexes around the country.

THE BATMAN

SPIDER-MAN 3

The Plain Dealer once again covers the goings on of the web-spinning sequel in Drew Carey's hometown.

Workers will pressure-wash building exteriors and windows, light storefronts and fill them with colorful paintings and sculptures from mostly local artists, she said. 'It's an amazing benefit for the city,' O'Neil said. 'Euclid Avenue will be left looking better than it does now.'"

SUPERMAN RETURNS

There's an article in Entertainment Weekly (subscription required for non-AOL members) where director Bryan Singer dismisses rumors that his time doing "X-Men" films made this assignment "easy." "To shoot for that long, so far away from home, was an exhausting experience," he said.

BATMAN BEGINS 2

Actor Robin Williams told Latino Review that he'd love to work with director Christopher Nolan again, and when asked about whether he'd like to play the Clown Prince of Crime, said, "Oh God Yeah!" Williams was in the running for the role in 1989's Michael Keaton-fueled "Batman," but was bumped for the more bankable name of Jack Nicholson.
