There's a new 'Solomon Kane' clip online. Plus: We've got lots of new 'Iron Man 2' stuff! Two actors who are NOT playing 'Captain America'. We've also got some new 'Human Target' cast photos and more! Good grief, it's your Comics2Film 9.12.16!
The third clue in the publicity scavenger hunt for 'Iron Man 2' has surfaced on CHUD.com. As with the previous two "clues", this one features an image of some tattered press clippings from Whiplash's wall of Downey. This one has the word "Confession" highlighted in yellow.
So the highlighted words so far are "Secret", "Stark" and "Confession".
Some fans are also pointing to the word "Mind" as being highlighted on the original Whiplash poster. However, the highlighting there seems to be done in the style of most WIRED cover designs, and doesn't appear to be the same kind of yellow marker highlight seen in these other images.
Devotees on the web have yet to crack the code and discover what these clues point to, but it may well be the reveal of the trailer, which we all know is coming next week.
Things have been a bit quiet on the 'Green Hornet' front, but IESB has some new stuff to show its readers. One of the site's readers saw a bullet-ridden, dented up version of the film's iconic automobile The Black Beauty being hauled on a California highway, and snapped some photos of it in transit.
Fans saw the car at this summer's Comic-Con International. Click through for the photos.
You'll find a video interview with Diedrich Bader, the voice of Batman on the funtastic toon show 'Batman: The Brave and the Bold' over on Electric Playground.
Director Edgar Wright continues to tease his upcoming release 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World' with cryptic and obscure photos on his blog. The latest is perhaps his least cryptic and obscure in that it's a photo six cast members, albeit displayed at such an angle as to not be entirely revealing.
Featured at left are actors Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. At right we have Alison Pill and Mark Webber. C2F isn't totally sure who is at the center but we belive it is Johnny Simmons and Anna Kendrick.
Fox has released five new images from 'Human Target', the all new TV series based on the DC/Vertigo comic of the same name.

We're not sure how long it's been going around, but apparently there's a rumor circulating out there that 'Supernatural' star Jensen Ackles is somehow attached to Marvel's 'Captain America' movie.
Well, at last August's Supernatural Vancouver Convention Ackles laid the rumors to rest saying flat out, "I've not gotten any calls from my agent. I have not gotten a script. I have not talked to anyone about it. It's all a rumor."
He also makes some self-deprecating comments about why he probably couldn't even be considered for the role. The video of Ackles talking about his non-involvment with the project is on YouTube.

A more recent rumor puts red-hot actor Sam Worthington in line for the star-spangled shield of 'Captain America'. The roots of this aren't hard to trace. When Worthington showed up for a recent online video broadcast promoting 'Avatar' he was wearing an Avengers T-shirt. MTV Splash Page served up a playful suggestion under a click-generating headline that Worthington might somehow be involved with Marvel's 'Avengers' movie.
As is usually the case on the interwebs, the playfulness was lost on many bloggers and the headline turned into a full-fledged rumor.
Just to put some gasoline on the fire, Worthington showed up for one-on-one interviews at the recent 'Avatar' junket, this time wearing a Captain America T-Shirt. MTV asked him to discuss the T-shirts and what, if any, attachment he has to the role of Captain America.
The short answer is, he has none.
"I'm a fan. I'm a fan of comics. I'm a fan of Captain America. I know they're making the film — but this is my way of saying, 'Good on. Go make it then, hurry up,'" is what Worthington said of the T-Shirts.
MTV then asked him if he's been approached about the role.
"No, mate. I'm Australian, dude. As I said, I think I'd be lynched if I played the role, but I'd kill to play it," the actor admitted before poking fun at MTV's propensity for click-and-rumor-generating headlines. "There's a headline on the MTV blog: 'Sam Worthington Would Kill To Play Captain America.'"
Hey, maybe he'll get the role after all. If not, it makes for a good headline.

We've got a new new video clip from the upcoming feature film, 'Solomon Kane'.
The footage, titled "Capture the Family" features a dramatic fighting sequence with Pete Postlethwaite, Alice Krige and Rachel Hurd-Wood encountering the forces of evil.
Solomon Kane is a 16th century anti-hero created by Robert E. Howard (creator of Conan the Barbarian). When Solomon Kane (James Purefoy of Rome) meets the Devil’s Reaper, he postpones his fate by renouncing violence – a vow that is soon tested by the forces of evil. As Kane once again straps on his weapons, he embarks on an epic journey of redemption.
Written and directed by Michael J. Bassett, the film also stars Rachel Hurd-Wood, Pete Postlethwaite, Alice Krige, Mackenzie Crook, Jason Flemyng and Max von Sydow as Josiah Kane.
