Edgar Wright continues to post intriguing but obscure photos from the set of 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World'. PLUS: A new clip from 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine', a new photos from 'Kick-Ass', a new chat with the 'Transformers' guys and a new promise from the tweets of 'Iron Man 2'. Stretching our mouth to let those big words come right out, it's your Comics2Film 9.4.27!
Drew McWeeny over at the Hitfix Motion Captured blog has an in-depth interview with actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse from the set of 'Kick-Ass'.
Moviegoers everywhere know Mintz-Plasse as the mono-named break-out character McLovin' in the movie 'Superbad'. In Mattew Vaughn's new movie, based on the comics by Mark Millar, he plays The Red Mist, the teenaged son of a mobster who creates a superhero persona for himself after being inspired by the adventures of the title character.
The transcript of the Q & A is quite extensive and it is accomapnied by the first photo of the character in costume. The photo is tiny and the deals are kind of obscure but McWeeny says the costume "makes him look sort of like the star of some deleted scenes from 'Velvet Goldmine.'"

Over on his personal website Edgar Wright continues to post daily pictures from the set of 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World'. Wright does not offer captions to the photos, which are very candid, so its up to the fans to speculate over what, excatly the subject of each is.
There are two gems in the most recent set. The first one features what looks to be star Michael Cera, standing in front of a tattered canvas backdrop. Posters on the Wright blog speculate that this is Scott Pilgrim travelling into "subspace". In the comics the characters can use subspace portals to traverse long distance in a hearbeat.
The second photos is of an actor standing before the cameras, and most have speculated that this is Chris Evans. Evans plays one of Pilgrim's many nemeses, skate-rat-turned-movie-star Lucas Lee.
Again, no captions, so all we can do is look and make a guess and our guess is that 'Scott Pilgrim vs the World'' is going to be a hugely entertaining movie.
SCI FI Wire chatted up Mr. Hugh Jackman, star and producer of 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'. Jackman says the film delivers plenty of action, but action alone isn't what the fans want.
"I think comic-book fans have loved Wolverine for more than the action," Jackman said. "He was the first antihero, and there was not just good guys versus bad guys, but an internal battle of good and bad going on within the character. Yeah, they're cool, and they've got claws or they can do amazing things, swords, cards, all of that great, fun stuff, but each one of them has a personal battle going on, and that's why audiences can relate."

'Wolverine' has bad dreams all the time. Remember in the first 'X-Men' movie, when he startled out of a nightmare and nearly gutted Rogue? Apparently that's not the first time its happened, as evidenced by this new clip featured on MTV Splash Page.
