New Priest Posters Online. Plus: Renner talks Hawkeye and The Avengers! CW debuts new Smallville 10 traier. More Iron Man 2 DVD extras! It's your Comics2Film 10.9.16!
C2F chatted with comics creator Matt Feazell last night, who revealed that he's been busy this summer directing a feature film version of his underground mini-comics sensation Cynicalman. The humor comic has seen hundreds of installments in various forms since the mid-1980s, including publications by Eclipse, Caliber and various Detroit-area newspapers.
Comics writer/artist and Feazell collaborator Jim Mackey (Jackpot Bear, Disney Adventures Magazine) stars in the movie as the title character.
Stay tuned for details...
Actor Jeremy Renner is out making the rounds for the awesome new crime thriller The Town and he chatted with MTV Splash Page about his role as the sharp-shooter Hawkeye in Marvel's ambitious Avengers movie.
Renner cautions fans not to expect the flamboyant blue and purple costume with the pointy mask adornments from the classic comics.
"I think it's going to be a little more reality-based," Renner said of his costume. "You can kind of tell with Scarlett [Johansson]'s character [in Iron Man 2], it's going to be more of a uniform . . . and not a big purple, comics sort of thing."
Renner admits that eschewing the more colorful costumes in favor or "a sense of reality" makes the characters more interesting to him.
The Avengers movie is likely following the game plan of Mark Millar's modernized Ultimates comics, which saw Black Widow and Hawkeye as active members of S.H.I.E.L.D. before the formation of the super team. Indeed Iron Man 2 has already revealed Johansson's Widow as an agent of the spy shop.
And Renner's next comment seems to confirm that the pair will have a relationship as they do in the comics. "We will, I think, in this one as well," said Renner. "We're kind of a team, and what that relationship is, is still to be discovered."
The Avengers movie is due out in 2012. Renner was previously rumored to have a walk-on bit in Thor as well.
MTV Splash Page has a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the nail-biting Whiplash attack on Tony Stark, which reveals the suitcase armor from Iron Man 2. The clip is part of the DVD and Blu-Ray release of the movie, happening September 28.
