The Avengers Update from

Don't count Norton out of 'The Avengers' or future 'Hulk's. Plus: A new clip from 'Superman/Batman'. An early screening of 'Dead of Night'. Cera talks 'Scott Pilgrim'. Ensuring the envelope has proper postage before mailing, its your Comics2Film 9.9.29!



DEAD OF NIGHT Test Screening Review

Apparently there's been a test screening of the 'Dead of Night' movie, based on the famous, Italian Dylan Dog comics. You'll recall the film stars Brandon Routh as an Americanized version of the character. Kevin Munroe ('TMNT') directed the film, which shot in New Orleans earlier this year.

A blogger has posted her impressions of the film. In spite of it being presented in an incomplete state, with whole segments of CGI yet-to-be-added, the reviewer seemed to like the film.

"I believe the movie will have a broad appeal beyond the typical horror genre fans. The audience certainly seemed to enjoy the movie. Everyone was laughing at the right times and quiet at other times."

Thanks to AntoBlueberry for the submission.



Michael Cera talks SCOTT PILGRIM

Out doing press rounds for 'Youth in Revolt', actor Michael Cera momentarily chatted with MTV Splash Page about his just wrapped 'Scott Pilgrim vs the World'.

Cera said he had seen portions of the film while he was on the set of the movie and fans of Bryan Lee O'Malley's graphic novel series won't be disappointed.

"They were cutting the movie as we shot so they were constantly showing some assemblies to us all," Cera told MTV and continued, commenting on the look of the movie. "It's a lot like the graphic novel," he explained. "It's going to look like how the graphic novel looks."

The conversation was prompted by some kind of in-joke between director Edgar Wright (who submitted a question for MTV to ask) and the actor about air cannons and light bulb explosions. Watch the video interview for Cera's response.

Don't Count Ed Norton out of AVENGERS

Admittedly, C2F has been among the online voices who have been skeptical about actor Edward Norton's return to the role of Bruce Banner in either a  'Hulk' sequel or 'The Avengers' movie. It seemed to us that things had cooled between Marvel and the actor, and that the studio may not be looking to include him or his character in upcoming movies. Certainly nobody was clamoring for more Hulk they way they clamored for 'Iron Man 2'.

Likewise we've been frustrated by the vague answers Norton has been giving when talking about the issue.

Yesterday, MTV Splash Page posted a video interview with the actor/filmmaker which features his most definitive answer to the question yet. And yes, it appears that a return to the Hulk, perhaps in 'The Avengers' is something that Norton is still genuinely interested in. Any appearance to the contrary is just a part of Norton's approach to projects.

"I get very busy. You have to deal with the demands of your moment," Norton said, explaining what may have seemed like a distancing from the Green Goliath. "I tend to keep my head in the thing I'm doing and I don't speculate or worry too much about what two or three blocks down the thing is going to be. I know all these things will reveal themselves and work themselves out."

So would he do 'The Avengers' or a 'Hulk' sequel?

"It's purely a function of time," said Norton. "It's always about just working things out on the schedule."

Norton also reiterated that he will not appear in 'Iron Man 2' as has been speculated. Finally, he talks some more about his love for the Marvel Universe, the way it functions and the fact that Marvel is infusing the interconnections in the new wave of movies.

Check it out...

Does MTV only ask this guy about Hulk?

Caught Bats/Supes this AM.  Liked it.  Thought the look of the rocket at the end was kinda lame.

I don't mind Norton so much.  I would like to see him as the Hulk in an Avengers movie simply for continuity purposes.

fft5305 9/29/2009 8:03:55 AM

Oh yeah. He seems like such a prima donna there. There's no way he's doing any more movies for Marvel...  (for the tonally challenged, yes, this post is dripping with sarcasm...)

Norton is Banner not Hulk. So unless Banner is in the Avengers than they dont need Norton. Word is that Norton is an asshole to work with so the odds are against them paying him, and putting him in the movie are low if they dont need him.

 Ah MTV clips. Forever saying a big, healthy "FUCK YOU" to everybody who lives out side of the Unites States of Amurika.

I can't wait for the Scott Pilgrim trailer to come out! When will I get to see it? WHEN? 

Wiseguy 9/29/2009 8:21:11 AM

The only thing we want to know is about the Hulk and anything Marvel related, why ask about anything else, we don't care.

I like Norton and his talent but the rumors surrounding him didn't start with the Hulk so yeah I still think he may be a prima donna.

Talk about spinning the answer to the question Norton.  lol   Personally I've always questioned the man for getting rid of Salma Hayek...what was he smoking?

I was clamoring and still am for more HULK? What kind of ignorant assumption was that by the author or this blurb attempting to be journalism.

I want more Hulk cause I want more LEADER. I liked Incredible Hulk more than Iron Man. The story was better and it wasnt all action. It was a chase movie. Iron Man was like Bond and Hulk was like Robert Deniro from Midnught Run.

Chasing Hulk is a lame movie concept. And you need Banner for Incredible Hulk. Banner Hulk would be perfect and could highlight Hulk's learning ability and self control we saw when he did not kill ABOMINATION at the end.


Avengers needs villains working together and not just heroes.

fft305, agreed.  I obviously don't know  the guy, but the reports of him being a prima donna sound like gutter journalism to me.  He's a talented actor, who seems to like his privacy.  I'll believe what he and actual Marvel employees have to say about his involvement as opposed to the gossip of very, very fringe people.

Thats spelt America, fucknut!
