First Look: The Captain America costume in action. Plus: Photos of X-Men: First Class' groovy Emma Frost. Ghost Rider 2 script details! Smallville special guests and more! It's your Comics2Film 10.9.9!
Comicus.it has a summary of what is purported to be a May 2010 draft of the Ghost Rider 2 screenplay by Scott M. Gimple and Seth Hoffman (from a story by David S. Goyer). The movie is set to go into production soon under the direction of Crank creators Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.
As best as we can suss out through Google translation, the story occurs years after the first movie with Johnny Blaze roaming the Earth, largely shunning people and staying in control of Ghost Rider. He meets a monk called Moreau who is part of a secret order of monks devoted to the archangel Michael. Moreau enlists Blaze to aid them in their search for a woman named Nadya and her son Danny, "who must be protected at all costs."
The villain is said to be someone called Roarke, who is pursuing the Ghost Rider for his own reasons.
Apparently the script will delve into the various Ghost Riders that have appeared throughout the centuries.
And can we bet that "Danny" is Danny Ketch?
Yeah, Baby! The swingin' sixties are the setting for X-Men: First Class and INF Daily has your first look at a shag-a-delic mutant from Matthew Vaughn's new movie.
Here's January Jones in a short coat, go-go-boots and a furry hat as Emma Frost (a.k.a the White Queen) in the now-filming movie for 20th Century fox. INF Daily has lots more photos from the day of filming so click through for the complete set.
Here are the photos we've been wanting to see for some time now: our first look at one of the actual costumes for Captain America: The First Avenger.
London's Daily Mail website published tons of cool action photos involving a stunt player in full WW2 combat gear.
Frankly, these aren't the kinds of photos the studio would prefer fans see as they won't present the costume or character in the best light. The costume looks a little goofy when it's just a stunt guy standing around or riding his motorcycle. We'll expect this to look a lot better through the camera lens, with color timing and shot composition in place. But he's got wings on the helmet!
More exciting are the photos of the Hydra agents pursuing Cap. While Cap's bike looks fairly standard-issue U.S. Army, the Hydra dudes are riding heavy metal, deco, Advanced Idea Mechanics models. And check out that Kirby-tech grill on the chase car! Look closely for the Hydra Emblem serving as the hood ornament. That's just sweet!
