The scuttlebutt over at Moviehole is that virtual unknown Mikki Padilla is in the running for the role of Themiscira's Finest.


Actor Bill Duke talked to Blackfilm.com about his role in the latest mutant minded movie. Duke plays, "General Trask ... the head of Homeland Security. Hes the Presidents right hand man and he has the responsibility of advising the president in terms of everything, every action ... I can tell you that Brett Ratner is a perfectionist, a detailed person down to the finest possible turn of the page; and as a result, I think he has the ability to work with actors which most directors dont. In fact, when youre moving around, he tells you whats happening before and whats happening after and then you talk about the execution of your part in terms of the character that both you and he creates ... verbally, Ive been told that if things go well, theres some interest in me continuing in the process of the character."

Meanwhile, Marvel movie mogul Avi Arad made a path to Moving Pictures magazine (subscription required) about the sequel and its parallel to real-life struggles.


The network has posted the trailer for the next episode, "Mercy" in glorious QuickTime.


According to Superhero Hype, the entire cast will lend their talents to the EA video game based on the film.


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/karaoke host/all-around lunatic Hannibal Tabu saying thanks for your time and indulgence, and [tagline sent back to development hell until something hipper can be dreamed up].
