The new Transformers 3 teaser trailer is now online! Plus: Kelley can't commit to Wonder Woman? Powers writers revealed. Lady Sif talks Thor and more! It's your Comics2Film 10.12.9!

 

 

 

Kelley Can't Commit to WONDER WOMAN?

Zap2It reports that, despite announcements from a few months back, famed TV creator David E. Kelley has not signed a deal to develop Wonder Woman as a new TV series. Although that's not to say he doesn't want to do it.

"There's no real deal in place yet, but yeah, my intent is to take a stab at it," Kelley tells Zap2it. "I've been working on it between scripts for Harry's Law. It's a very, very different genre for me, a very tricky beast. I won't know whether I've cracked it or not until I've finished it, but it's going."

The TV creator said that cracking the project is essential before he commits to working on the show.

"If I can't, I don't want to delude Warner Bros. or anybody else that I should be doing it. The way I've always worked has been to write a script and discover, in the process of the writing, if it's a fertile and creative place where I want to live. If I feel I can make the characters my own and it's a world rich enough for me to revisit, that's a good sign to me that it's a series worth doing," he said.

Kelley said he received a flurry of submissions from agents trying to position their clients for the lead role, but the show's producers have made it clear that the project is still in the early stages.

Thanks to AntoBlueberry for the submission.

 

 

Jaimie Alexander on Playing Sif in THOR

The PopcornBiz blog at NBC New York puts the spotlight on actress Jaimie Alexander, who plays warrior woman Lady Sif in Marvel's upcoming Thor movie. And the girl is ready to kick some ass.

"When I first got the part Kenneth Branagh came to me and said, 'Listen, everybody has to work out and get into shape, but if you start to get too thin we're going to make you stop working out. I don't want you skinny,'" Alexander recalled. "It was great to hear that, because unfortunately in Hollywood you don't really hear that there is such a thing as too skinny. The guys at Marvel, they're not into the whole stick figure thing. And I'm not either!"

The role also has her wielding a sword and fighting frost giants like any good Valhalla-bound Asgardian would.

"I should be able to take out anyone after all that training, but I'm naturally just insanely clumsy, so it took a lot of finesse and a lot of practice to make sure that I wasn't smacking someone in the face on accident – which I did twice! We had a great stunt team and they were very forgiving," Alexander said.

She also confessed that she loves hearing from the fans about comic book lore and thinks our obsession with modern culture is a relatively healthy one.

WALKING DEAD Writer Shuffles to POWERS Pilot

New York Magazine's Vulture Blog followed up on the recent stories of the Walking Dead writing staff moving on to other projects and unearthed an interesting nugget o' info for Comics2Film readers.

Regular readers will recall that at the top of the month, word broke that Frank Darabont had supposedly "fired" the entire writing staff of the show. Executive producer and comics creator Robert Kirkman then responded to those stories suggesting that they were blown out of proportion. After all, for the six-episode first season, Darabont had written two of the episodes and freelancers had written two more, leaving the season one staff to write the remaining two. The primary exile from season one is Charles H. "Chic" Eglee, who was looking to take over as showrunner in season two. With Darabont wanting to stay on as show runner, Kirkman says Eglee wanted to move on to a new project.

So now, Vulture is reporting that Eglee's new project is nothing short of the long-gestating TV show for FX based on Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's beloved comic Powers. He'll be writing and executive producing for that show, which finds a gritty pair of homicide detectives investigating crimes in a world populated by supeheroes.

Supposedly Eglee has been working to get on board with the show for months.

The news was quickly confirmed by Bendis himself who tweeted, "OK. I rarely do this, but the Powers TV rumor that hit the net today:  confirmed as fact!

Getting back to the zombie show, Vulture reports that other writers from Dead season one are feeling a bit stung by recent turn of events. They would love to stay on staff with the hit show, but Darabont and Kirkman are asserting themselves as the main creative voices of the series who will guide it to season two success or failure. Insiders predict that the pair's relative inexperience in TV may prove that model to be unworkable and prompt a swift return to using staffers instead of freelancers.

Favreau says Shared Universe Will Alter IRON MAN 3

Director Jon Favreau told MTV Splash Page that the development of Marvel's shared universe across movies like Iron Man 2, Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers will have a very definite impact on his plans for Iron Man 3.

"If you remember, Iron Man was a very normal world. It was based in our real world, with a few little things exaggerated," Favreau told MTV News. "The technology was exaggerated slightly, but really it didn't feel like you were stepping into a superhero world. It didn't feel like you were stepping into the Marvel Universe.

"By the time 'Iron Man 3' happens, you will have had three other superheroes revealing themselves at least, in addition to S.H.I.E.L.D. and Black Widow and whoever they have in Avengers,'" he explained. "So now you're going into a world where you open up the paper and you're reading about villains and heroes and a lot of people with different types of powers."

So while the first movie didn't really allow for it, Favreau says that the Marvel Universe is a place where a magic-themed character like The Mandarin is perfectly at home and he hopes to use the character in the third film.

Wonder Woman: hmmm not a major network show , make it for CW or maybe Syfy, it will also have to be very modernized and no bathingsuit costume, it would have to be the new out fit she is wearing with the jeans look.

Powers, great book and it would be very cool to see this on tv also , maybe on FX , which will give them room for the grittiness

Transformers: trailer looked pretty good and that sure does look like Alpha Trion at the end which would be cool.

The rest is all rehashed news from weeks ago

Wonder Woman should be made as a studio film instead of a TV series. A Tv series wouldn't have the same budget , and if a series was green-lighted would that hamper having WW on the big screen as part of a shared universe with other DCU films? Would DC allow other Justice Leaguers to be written into the series?

Like that Favreau is trying to keep in step and maintain continuity with the other films. Opens the door for other Marvel characters to share the spotlight w/ Iron Man

Agree w/ Leifeld, the studio should give the fans a Deadpool movie that stays true to the character. Wonder if we'll ever see a movie reuniting Deadpool and Wolverine.

Liked the teaser for Dark of the Moon, can't wait for the full trailer.

Mandarin for Ironman 3! Get it done!

That trailer for TF3 looks  too interesting. Will Bay be true to his word and make a better film to finish off his run on the franchise? Here's hoping... 

Truthfully, I'd rather a WW film but a TV series done right with actual villians from the comics is too good to ignore.

I'm glad Marvel doesn't want their female characters bone thin but somebody forgot to pass the memo to Natalie Portman. I think Portman was heavier when she filmed The Professional

Powers is being developed for FX which to me along with AMC are the best outlets outside of HBO. Looking forward to this series too

Fables has probably been my top non-superhero comic over the last decade so I hope WB/DC do decide to develop it into something. But it has to go to HBO or FX, definitely not regular network if they want to do the books justice.

Transformers 3 baby, that looked pretty damn good. I was hoping for some action sequences but I can wait.

@Favreau, if you're reading this, the Mandarin's power ring are not magical but alien technology. Still I'm glad you're embracing the Marvel universe. That said it doesn't mean you can't or shouldn't stick to some basic laws.

 

 

Oh yeah, Wonder Woman, definitely should be headed for the big screen but agree with jfdavis. The problem is that to do it right they have to spend money and they didn't do it for Smallville so I doubt they'll do it for WW

LOL Wise....good one on Portman.  Laughing in my office before I fire someone.

Transformers: A very well done teaser trailer. I am no fan of the films other than being great examples of fantastic FX and Blowt Stuff Up Reel Guud fun. I'm sure I'll see it in theatres only for that reason.

Wonder Woman: Really hope Kelley has his run at the character. I'm really interested in what he might do.

Superman Lives: Glad that never happened.

Thor: Jaimie Alexander said: She also confessed that she loves hearing from the fans about comic book lore and thinks our obsession with modern culture is a relatively healthy one.

Is she crazy!?! Doesn't she know must of us geeks are frickin' nuts!?! :-)

Wonder Woman: This would be very cool if it did happen, NOT on the CW!  SCREW the CW.  They are FOOLS.  This would be better served by being on the Sci-Fi channel.  They need to do it hardcore and edgy otherwise it will look cheesy and lame.

Thor:  Jaimie Alexander talking about being Sif in the movie is so cool!  Busty, voluptuous women!  SWEET.  That is what Norwegians/Vikings are like, at least in my experiences.  No stick figure women in Valhalla!  This is how they need to do Wonder Woman!  The same attitude needs to be held.  No skinny stick figure Amazon women on Themyscira!!  :D

The Superman pic from Burton's Superman project looks like utter DOG SHIT and now I am more than ecstatic that that movie CRASHED AND BURNED.  It would have SUCKED.  What a pile of crap!

Mandarin in IM3?  BRING IT!  Yeah baby YEAH!!!!  They had better keep him Chinese though and not make him something else.  That would be lame.  I trust Jon Favreau though. So far he has been on the the best ever in the comic to movie process, EVER.  Most likely forever too.

Transformers 3 looks pretty cool.  I am down to see it.  More than ever too since Megan Fox is gone!  With her horrible non-acting too!  She is just a female Keanu Reeves!!  Neither could act their way out of a wet paper bag and display the emotional content of cardboard.

Wow!  Emma is absolutely delicious as Gwen Stacy.  They'd better not kill her.......I never got over Gwen dying in Spider-Man #121.

Transformers 3 looks very fun.  Gonna be a great year for movies and us fanboys...

gopherblaster 12/9/2010 9:14:46 AM

I dont get the TF trailor.  Third movie now, are we as viewers supposed to be suprised that Transformers exist?  So what if they crash landed on the moon, wasnt Megatron on Earth for a bit too?  I could see this type of trailor for the first movie.
