  1. Lex Luthor or Jim Halpert Possibly to Star in Guardians of the Galaxy?

    Elsewhere on the internet

    There have been a ton of Guardians of the Galaxy casting rumors floating around as of late. By my count there've been seven actors reportedly in contention to play the lead role of Star-Lord (aka Peter Quill), the latest being Joseph Gordon-Levitt. And now you can add two more to the list: Michael Rosenbaum, best known for playing Lex Luthor in Smallville, and The Office's John Krasinski. And Drax the Destroyer has gotten in on the rumor mill as well, with three actors reportedly vying to play him.

  2. Who Should Really Be Allowed to Replace Bruce Campbell in The Evil Dead?

    The World May Never Know

    So, they're going to remake The Evil Dead. That was hard enough to deal with, but once its original star, Mr. Bruce Campbell, gave us his blessing that assurance that this was going to be a lovingly-made project, it was easier to accept. And now, we know that Campbell will not be reprising his role as Ash. And this opens up a lot of questions about who is the right man to fill those very special shoes. Some people have tried to come up with contenders, but I think this is a lot more delicate than some are thinking this will be.

  3. Which Marvel Characters Are Getting Their Own Short Films?

    Meanwhile...

    Here's something that's been going on without our knowledge for a while: Marvel Studios has been throwing around the idea of producing short films about some its less blockbuster-y characters and has actually shot two of them already. Both of them star Clark Gregg as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Agent Phil Coulson and will be on the DVDs and Blu-Rays for Thor and Captain America later this year. But will this become "a thing"? And what characters will they be choosing? But most intriguingly -- is this the true story behind Isaiah Mustafa's Luke Cage video?

  4. Isaiah Mustafa Meets With Marvel Over Luke Cage

    Cautiously Optimistic

    Isaiah Mustafa has made no secret of his fervent desire to play Luke Cage, the Harlem-based crime-fighter who, unlike most other Marvel superheroes, mostly fights regular old criminals instead of their costumed counterparts. He told Superherohype.com:
    Luke Cage has a lot going on. He's this man, he's got all these powers and abilities and he can use them to save whatever major city, but instead of doing that he uses them to help Harlem. He wants to fix his neighborhood, and that's what's so admirable to me. Instead of leaving and going someplace bigger, he stays right where he needs to be and tries to do the best that they can."
    According to Mustafa, the ball is in Marvel Entertainment's court at this point.

  8. Marvel and ABC Are Developing “The Hulk” for TV

    What superhero had a beloved but campy television show in the 70's, and then kinda fell off the non-comics radar until now, when a new show was announced to be in development? Well, Wonder Woman. And now the Hulk! According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Hulk is a priority at Marvel's television division, which has been running along quietly since Jeph Loeb took charge.
