Anyone fretting that Christopher Nolan's involvement in the film remake of the UK TV show 'The Prisoner' would interfere with the much-anticipated 'Batman' sequel can breath a little easier.
Cinefools talked to the producer of the movie, Barry Mendel, who said that Nolan is no longer involved with the project.
Whether or not Nolan dives into the 'Dark Knight' sequel after 'Inception' remains to be seen, but at this point he's not a prisoner to 'The Prisoner'.
With things heating up on the 'Wolverine 2' sequel, Liev Schreiber tells MTV Splash Page he doesn't think he'll be left out in the cold.
Schreiber, who played Sabretooth in 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' revealed, "Hugh [Jackman] mentioned that he had some conversations about it, but no one's told me about it yet."
However the actor said he enjoyed doing the first one and would like to reveal on screen how Victor Creed devolves from this year's version to the more beastly one seen in the original 'X-Men' movie. "I'd like to find out how my Victor became Tyler Mane's Victor."
Marvel has unveiled preview art for the November comics title 'Iron Man vs Whiplash', leading many to speculate as to whether or not the newly redesigned Whiplash that appears in the comic will give us some insights into Mickey Rourke's ultimately evolved armor in 'Iron Man 2'.
The comic is obviously meant to dovetail with anticipation over the new movie, and the publisher has on occasion released books that bring the comic versions of character somewhat in line with the movie version. There were a slew of 'Doctor Octopus' titles in 2003 and 2004 which did away with the characters traditional costume and had him looking more like his trenchcoat counterpart in 'Spider-Man 2'. Marvel also published an issue of the infamous 'Daredevil vs Bullseye', which made Bullseye look (for a period) like the Colin Farrell version.
The new Whiplash comes courtesy of cover artist extraordinaire Marko Djurdjevic and features a bare-armed, chest-plated version of the character with glowing energy whips. On some level, that's what's been seen in the movie clips so far.
It's unlikely that the movie Whiplash will look exactly like this new comic version, but it's a sure bet Marvel's hoping it'll be close enough to ensnare new readers who are psyched for the movie but haven't picked up a comic in a while.
IRON MAN VS. WHIPLASH is a four issue mini-series written by Brannon Bragga & Marc Guggenheim with art by Phil Briones and covers by Brandon Peterson. It goes on sale for $3.99 on November 4th.
IGN has a new preview real for 'The Surrogates', directed by Jonathan Mostow, starring Bruce Willis, based on the Top Shelf Comix title by Robert Venditti and Brett Weldele. The movie opens September 25th.
TV Guide has the exclusive first look at for '90210' and 'Sarah Connor Chronicles' star Brian Austin Green in his new villain role on season nine of 'Smallville'. On the show Green will play the man with the kryptonite heart: Metallo.
Here's the setup for the character offered by TV Guide: "Green plays John Corben, a new Daily Planet reporter who becomes the comic-book villain Metallo. In the aftermath of an accident, Corben is mysteriously outfitted with a heart made of kryptonite."
In the comics, Metallo is largely a robot with a human brain and executive producer Kelly Soulders says we may see something closer to that down the road. According to Soulders, the photo at right represents a "rough version of Metallo, a first attempt at the technology, and eventually he’ll get sleeker."
LatinoReview reports that director Brett Ratner is eying 'Twilight' heart-throb Robert Pattinson as his leading man in the 'Youngblood' movie.
"[Pattinson] could do anything. He just has that look," explained Ratner. "I picture him on Youngblood, for sure."
We don't usually go with a lot of snark here at Comics2Film, so we're going to leave it to you Maniacs to solve the following equation for us:
Youngblood + Brett Ratner + Robert Pattinson = ???
