There's a swarm o' Green Hornet clips on the web. Plus: Producer talks Superman, Dark Knight futures. Perlman talks Hellboy 3 and more! It's your Comics2Film 11.1.6!





Producer Charles Roven is one of the people behind Christopher Nolan's hyper-successful Batman film series. He's also producing the new Superman movie which Nolan is overseeing. Presently he's promoting his new movie Season of the Witch but stopped to field some questions from ShockTillYouDrop.com about the twin DC hero franchises.

Roven expressed his enthusiasm about working with Nolan and his producing partner/wife Emma Thomas on The Dark Knight Rises, and is equally enthusiastic about working with Zack Snyder and his producing partner/wife Deborah Snyder. But Roven said that Nolan's involvement in the Man of Steel pic is the end of any crossing between the two superheroes' paths.

"That may be in somebody's mind but right now the Batman lives in his world and the Superman lives in his world," Roven said of the prospects of a crossover. "Those stories are those stories and we haven't thought beyond each individual picture."

He also addressed the notion that Rises will be the last go-round for Nolan on the bat-series.

"I think that Chris Nolan has said that he wanted to make a trilogy and this is a trilogy. As far as we all know, this is it. This is the trilogy. The Dark Knight Rises is the third part of what Chris created with Batman Begins and we're not looking past that," Roven said. "I've said this about Chris before: I've never known Chris to do anything but focus on the movie he's making. He gets completely immersed in the movie he's doing and I know that all he's thinking about right now when it comes to Batman, The Dark Knight Rises, is making it the best movie he can. He's not thinking, 'will there be another one?' And he's already said, in his mind, it's a trilogy. So I think he's just focusing on making this the best he possibly can and that's it."

Of course, with his Superman responsibilities, Nolan may not be able to afford to be so laser-focused on the Batman film.

"It's a huge workload, but there's a way we've been talking about how to make it work. Hopefully, there will be a little bit of time in-between the start of production on both of them. Right now Dark Knight Rises is coming out in the summer of 2012 and Superman is coming out in the winter of 2012. So hopefully -- and we're just at the beginning phases of both of them," Roven explained. "We haven't even entered official pre-production on either one of them -- there will be a little bit of room. They're both going to be long shoots. I'm sure there's going to be some overlap, but hopefully there'll be as little overlap as possible."

Finally, Roven declined to address rumors that Superman would be rendered on film as a CGI creation.



Sommers Not Doing G.I.JOE Sequel

The L.A. Times 24 Frames blog reports that director Stephen Sommers has bowed out of the planned G.I.Joe sequel.

Paramount Pictures declined to comment on the development, but the story broke as a result of word that other directors were being approached for the job. As such, it's unclear what has prompted Sommer to part ways with the franchise.



SCOTT PILGRIM, IRON MAN Contenders for VFX Oscars

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have announced that seven films remain in the running in the Visual Effects category for the 83rd Academy Awards.

Making the list are two comic-based films: Scott Pilgrim vs The World and Iron Man 2. Those movies are squaring off against Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Hereafter, Inception, and Tron: Legacy.

All members of the Visual Effects Branch will be invited to view 15-minute excerpts from each of the seven shortlisted films on Thursday, January 20.  Following the screenings, the members will vote to nominate five films for final Oscar consideration.

The 83rd Academy Awards nominations will be announced live on Tuesday, January 25, 2011, at 5:30 a.m. PT in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater.



Perlman Talks HELLBOY III Story

Out promoting Season of the Witch, actor Ron Perlman told Examiner.com that he'd be happy to join Guillermo del Toro on a Hellboy III shoot if the director ever gets around to making that movie.

The actor said that del Toro has been busy on other projects, while he has is occupied with this movie and Sons of Anarchy so there's been little discussion between them about a third round with Mike Mignola's monster-fighting demon.

"I hope there’s a third Hellboy, simply because he always thought of it as a trilogy. And when he set up that [Liz Sherman] is pregnant with twins at the end of Hellboy 2, he kind of sketched out what the third Hellboy movie would look like. It’s so theatrical. It’s so epic. It’s so dark," Perlman said. "And also, we have to find out about the Hellboy destiny. It’s written in stone that he’s going to destroy mankind. That’s what he’s been brought to Earth to do. So the whole dialogue between nurture and nature gets to live itself out in the third Hellboy movie. But if there’s no third one, then the audience doesn’t get to see any of that."

I'm a big fan of ron's but Hellboy 3 isnt really a must see for me. I'll admit that I wouldn't mind  seeing it but I would rather see him in Sons of anarchy for quite some time.

sommers not on gi joe 2? how about no gi joe 2 movie

batman superman live action- i doubt it could work well. It does k in animated form lets keep it that way until the justice league movie comes out - if it ever does

kinetoscope 1/6/2011 6:48:14 AM

GH look like a lot of fun. I am looking forward to seeing this.

I agree, I would rather see a JLA movie than a Batman/Superman buddy movie.

Smallvile, that clip of the suit is from when the GA acted like he was Sups, nothing new there.

I watched Scott Pilgram again last night. I was curious to see what my wife would think about it. We laughed a ton during the movie. When you break it down there is a lot of great stuff in that film. I think it will take a long time but it will become a underground hit.


LocoLobo73 1/6/2011 6:52:18 AM

Superman / Batman: did anyone actually beleive that was going to happen, Warners and DC have no plans of bring this to us until they at least get a successful Superman film, and then Im pretty sure they would only do it if Nolan is on board for it and he has made it pretty clear that they are sperate worlds.

Gi Joe 2, Im all for another one as long as Sommers is not involved, so this is good news now maybe someone else can come in and fix the stupid crap from the first movie, no robo suits, no ripcord comedians, put the hood back on Cobra Commander, and please correct that the Baroness is a bad guy and not related to the commander. I dont care how they do it just do it. oh yeah get rid of Heavy Duty give me Stalker, get rid of Snakeyes lips, oh and lose duke and bring in Flint .  Id Love to see Flint , Lady Jaye, Scarlett, Snake eyes, Stalker, Breaker, and Hawk.  From Cobra lets see an improved Commander, Destro can stay so can Baroness and Zartan, but I want Dreadnoks, Ripper, Torch, Buzzer and Monkey wrench.

Hell Boy 3 : hell yes they need to finish this off, Del Toro absolutely has to complete his trilogy, then Id like to see him take on another Comic book movie, I loved Blade 2, and would love to see him do either a DR Strange or Maybe a true reboot of Ghost Rider when Cages next crap fest crashes and burns, they should have gotten Del Toro for GR to begin with.

Green Hornet: why dont they just take all the clips and put them together to make the whole movie viewable that way i dont have to pay to see it, sounds good to me , lol

Smallville: Look Up In The Sky ! Its a Bird !, Its a Plane ! No, Its the Red Blue Blur, lol, if his name is the Blur then why is his symbol an S , hmm good question , lol I actually really cant wait to see the rest of this final season

Green Hornet clips and so on... 

Hellboy 3 sounds decent enough whenever they get the time to make it. Looking forward to The Dark Knight Rises and the new Superman movie, as usual. Don't care about G.I. Joe 2. 

LocoLobo73: Because it's not an English "S" that he sports. It's the symbol for the House of El. You'd have to go way back to Superman's early days in comics and TV to still get the whole "S" actually meaning Superman. Since the first movie came out back in 1979, they have used this symbol of his, in one way or another, for his family's house. It just happens to look like an English "S". 

silversurfer 1/6/2011 8:29:09 AM

Is it just me, or are the marketers of GH aware that most people think that their movie is going to be bad? Which is why they're working so hard to make sure that we can be sold on it? It's January...just because there isn't much else going on, GH will be a success.

Superman / Batman: never going to happen on the big screen; at least not in a way that everyone would be satisfied with the end results.

Hellboy 3: it deserves to be a trilogy because 2 wasn't a good way to end the story.

Wiseguy 1/6/2011 9:03:53 AM

The Green Hornet should do ok but wow it just doesn't look all that good to me. I'll admit the trailer in 3D did spark my interest but outside of "the suit" clip it seems pretty mediocre to me. I love the slo-mo action sequences ala Matrix so I guess maybe at least I'll enjoy the eye candy.

Also, why isn't this movie titled KATO

I'm that one guy that enjoyed GI Joe. Never having been a fan of the toys/comics or toons I was able to accept the cheesy over the top movie adaptation. I do hope the cgi is better the second time around.

I really think DC/WB is only keeping Supes and Bats separate to respect Nolan's wishes and his approach to Batman. Once his Bats trilogy is over then all bets are off and I think then we'll see the build up to the JLA movie.

Superman's S is the symbol for the House of El like krath said and it means hope or faith if I recall correctly

Not a big Hellboy fan, the movies were entertaining but not to the point where I'm begging for a third. Let GDT focus on Mountains of Madness

jfdavis 1/6/2011 9:32:06 AM

I personally think, all things being equal, a good JL movie would be so much better than a Superman/Batman movie no matter how awesome it turned out.

Yes, since the Donner movies anyway, the letter "S" is the symbol of the House of El.  Garry and Penny Marshall probably have the stylized "L" copyrighted by now anyway...The real question is why is it the House of Zod? Not that I know where the name El came from either...)

I agree that while I'm not dying to see it immediately, a Hellboy trilogy conclusion would be awesome.  Storywise we're at Back to the Future II or Empire Strikes Back.  (If those two examples are two extremes Hellboy fits in between as far as importance of a third movie. Was BtoF's arc about Marty's destiny or Doc Brown's?)

Just gotta say about the G.I. Joe sequel: To all the haters of this flick, did you really expect anyone was going to be able to make a truly good movie based on the source material.  Don't get me wrong, at 37, I'm the G.I Joe generation and I enjoyed the old cartoon as a kid but face facts; it's not Apocalypse Now and there is nothing you can do to it to make that happen.  The movie was more or less as good as it could be.  I could have done without the cyber-suits and Channing Tatum is a loust actor but overall, it was a live action cartoon, exactly as it should have been.  If you don't want to see the second one, fine.  Just know that there is no one out there who can make a G.I. Joe movie be significantly better than the 1st one was.  And knowing is half the battle...ya tool.

littlemikey979 1/6/2011 11:28:51 AM

Usually when that many clips are released the movie doesn't do well. I hope this time its different for Green Hornet but I dont think that  its going to be the different here.

I haven't watched the last few episodes of Smallville and I really dont care. I watch the final show cause that is probably when they are going to suit him up and let him fly. And that is only cause I have put in so much time already.

GI Joe, I dont know what to think about it. Lose those Ironman knock-off and maybe the movie will do alright.

krathwardroid 1/6/2011 1:04:32 PM

jfdavis: Regarding Back to the Future, I think the story was a little bit of Doc and Marty both. Each grew in their own way. Like the first movie, Back to the Future III focused more on one character - Doc instead of Marty. In the end, they both came full circle.
