WANTED

New trailer? Oh, yeah, that's online ...

... thanks to MySpace or you can download it in multiple formats from IGN.

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

New set photos have been posted at Flynet Online.

WHITEOUT

Actress Kate Beckinsale briefly talked to Moviehole about the Greg Rucka adaptation. "I love genre movies and it was nice to play someone who was a human for a change," Beckinsale said. "Usually I'm grappling with how to make this realistic when she's been alive for 700 years and all that. And it was actually I thought it was an interesting story and an interesting character." How about working the 'con circuit? "I feel I'm a bit of an old hand at it now and I think that was my third or fourth Comic-Con," Beckinsale said of starting promotions for this film last year at San Diego, "so the first one I went to was a real eye-opener. But I kind of know those people now and have been, actually, one of those people. I like all that stuff. I love 'Aliens,' I love 'Rocky,' I love 'All About Eve,' and I love 'Au Revoir Les Enfants.' I don't have a bias particularly towards one kind of movie."

SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN

CBR News has a special report on "V" actor Robert Englund's work bringing the Vulture to life in the new animated series.

Meanwhile, there's a fairly complete cast listing on the message boards at the show's fansite.

CONAN

CHUD did some digging about that Djimon Hounsou rumor and found out from the actor himself that he could be swinging a sword. Hounsou said, "I kind of wanted to be quiet about it until I completely finished the project. It's obviously a comic book that used to be part of the 'Conan' comic book ..." Then they go on to try and debunk it ... what?

INCREDIBLE HULK

Actor William Hurt is quoted at the Calgary Herald talking about being Thunderbolt Ross. "He wants Hulk's power, but is humiliated by Hulk's conscience: he actually sees and recognizes that it's more developed than his own, even though he's a patriot and a warrior for his country. He's sacrificed enormously for that purpose, but at the expense at times of his humanity -- which he occasionally recovers." Hmm ...

Superhero Hype claims that a new gamma-powered trailer will premiere at next week's ShoWest convention in Las Vegas.

THE DARK KNIGHT

Speaking of trailers, Dark Horizons is reporting that a new promo will premiere with screenings of "10,000 BC" on March 7th.

MTV has a video of "the toy version of a flash car that Batman uses in the film." Whatever that means ...

THE BATMAN

More from Gotham City? There's spoilers aplenty amidst screen captures at the Legions of Gotham message boards. Also writer Alan Burnett gave a season-ending interview to World's Finest.

MORE COWBELL ...

We can't do this without you. The rumors, the scoops, the set photos -- they're all fueled by passionate fans emailing in the goods.
