'Iron Man 2' makes a flyby of Randy's Donuts. Plus: 'Green Lantern' pushed back by six months. Simon Pegg talks 'Tintin'. 'Barbarella' film fails to achieve satisfaction. 'Wolverine' is destroying America. Measuring twice and cutting once, it's your Comics2Film 9.5.7!



New release date for GREEN LANTERN

Fans anticipating the 'Green Lantern' movie will half to wait another half-year. A new release date of June 17, 2011 has been staked by Warner Bros. for the film. The new date places the Warner Bros./DC Universe feature squarely in the middle of a big supehero storm, coming a month after 'Spider-Man 4' and 'Thor' and a month before 'First Avenger: Captain America'.

The 'Green Lantern' movie is currently in development under director Martin Campbell. No actors have been cast in the film.

Thanks to Antonello Blueberry for the submission.



Rodriguez's BARBARELLA Left Unsatisfied

MTV Movies Blog chatted with rebel filmmaker Robert Rodriguez about the upcoming 'Sin City' Blu-Ray release. They dropped in a question about the 'Barbarella' film that the director had been developing for Universal.

Rodriguez told MTV that he's no longer involved with the project. His departure came after funding became available from a German company, offering the director the biggest budget of his career: $70 million. However, the project would have then required him to film the movie primarily in Germany.

"Nothing against Germany, but I have five kids and I was like, ‘God, I don’t know if we can do that. I don’t know if I can be away that long,'" Rodriguez told MTV.

The director also said that the decision was not an easy one.

"We had all this artwork and screen tests of what it would look like. It was a really cool, R-rated, sexy—almost like that [1981 animated] movie, ‘Heavy Metal’—version of a ‘Star Wars’ movie. Something that no one ever could get to see. It was gonna be really great."

WOLVERINE is Destroying America

The Colber Report takes a look at Hollywood movies that are subverting America's culture. Top of the list? 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'...



Simon Pegg talks TINTIN has a trio of delightful interviews with Mr. Simon Pegg (Ultimate Scotty in 'Star Trek'). Pegg talks about his upcoming project 'Paul' and what's next with him and director Edgar Wright. On the comic book movie front, Pegg shares anecdotes from the green screen set of 'Tintin', where he plays one half of the Thom(p)son Twins...




and now for the most exciting installment yet of...

Jon Favreau Tweets about IRON MAN 2

IRON MAN 2 crew on location at Randy's Donuts in L.A.

We've been reposting Jon Favreau's Twitter tweats in this spot regularly since filming on 'Iron Man 2' began a few weeks ago. Admittedly, the tweets have been appealing only to the most voyeuristic among us. However, yesterday's round of twittering yielded a number of interesting nuggets, including a new location photo from the filming.

The photo shows the 'Iron Man 2' crew working on the roof of famous L.A. landmark Randy's Donuts. The famed Inglewood drive-in, known to some as "The Big O" and its quirky architecture has been a staple of the California scene since the 1950s.  It's been featured in numerous films and TV shows, and even mimicked in 'The Simpsons'.

Favreau doesn't provide his Twitter followers and context for the photo, so it's anyone's guess how this will figure into the film. Maybe Iron Man will fly through the famous hole!

But the photo-op that many fans have been waiting for happened on the closed set yesterday. Check out the tweets:

# Scarlett's first day on set in the Black Widow outfit. You've never heard a crew get so quiet so fast. 10:45am May 6th

# Now shooting first scene with Tony Stark and Nick Fury. 1:45pm May 6th

# Stay tuned... Posting a pic. 6:35pm May 6th

# Another day at the office. [photo posted] 7:45pm May 6th

# Heading home after a long day. 12:45am May 7th

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!  That means there is no Batman on Summer 2011! 

SgtTechCom 5/7/2009 6:34:09 AM

O Well not like the next Batman movie is going to be any better then the Dark Knight.  The best villians have been done already as far as im concerned unless they bring back Harvey Two Face.

Penguin - lame

Catwoman - lame

Riddler - weak

Unless its pretty much Bane then ta hell with it.


hanso 5/7/2009 7:14:17 AM

Yes because Bane is SOOOOOOOO much better than the other 3 you mentioned.

What about Mr.Freeze? or Killer Croc? Yeas, Mr. Freeze was done badly in B&R, but if there is anyone who can save the character, it's Chris Nolan. And in BatMan: Gotham Knight, they did a great retelling of Killer Croc that would be excellent for the third film.(I won't spoil anything, but to see for yourselves, at least rent BatMan:Gotham Knight.)

SteveVortex 5/7/2009 7:58:46 AM

There really aren't too many decent Batman villains left that would fit in the Nolanverse.  There is no way he would do Mr. Freeze, he just isn't REAL enough.  Catwoman, Penguin and maybe Deadshot would fit, but you'd have to really tone down the first two.  Croc if they turned him into a guy with bad skin, but who wants to see that? Maybe Hush? I even think the Riddler is a terrible idea since he'll just come off as a poor man's Joker.  Bane could definitely be awesome though.

But personally I hope they don't bother.  I am sick of Batman, and I could care less about another outing with Bale impersonating the singer of Cannibal Corpse.

I say bring on the Green Lantern!  Bring on Thor!  Bring on Captain America and the Avengers DAMMIT!


hanso 5/7/2009 8:50:25 AM

Bane & Croc would work as just "muscle" for who ever the main villain is gonna be.

Damn u WB, why did you push away Batman!!

jumblue 5/7/2009 8:52:38 AM

 Who wants to bet he flys through the doughnut?

hanso 5/7/2009 8:52:48 AM

I can't wait for Iron Man 2 to finally release, that way I don't have to keep reading those damn tweets.  Or is it twits?

i say let Zack Snyder direct a whole new Style of Batman action. Focusing more on the Stylized fighting of Batman like in the cartoons we used to watch. Add some Zack Snyder stylized imagery of batman, some crazy shadow colors and alot of that slow motion action, but maybe w/ a lil bit of a bigger buffer Batman kicking some major ass and cracking jaws!! The Villain can be whoever Zack Snyder wants to use. Just a thought.... im a lil stoned at work rt now... hahahaha

I wouldn't mind seeing Nolan work on another Batman movie, but I'm kinda against having the Riddler, Penguin, or Bane in it. The Riddler would just be a rehashing of the Joker. The Penguin just sucks... period. Bane would have no real story, just lots of back-breaking action. Mr. Freeze is an option, as long as they don't make it hokey. Catwoman could work too. And Batman/Bruce Wayne needs another female interest. But please, no Halle Berry!

I liked the original Reaper story from back in the late 80's, but I don't think there's ever a chance that Nolan will do that. There's already been one Rachel. And as we all know, Chill is dead.
