Until Warner Bros. says something official about Justice League, the rumors about the studio’s plans for expanding the DC Universe are going to keep coming. The latest is that, despite his previous statements about being done with Batman, Christopher Nolan will oversee Justice League and the rest of the DC movie universe, with Christian Bale and Henry Cavill possibly appearing as Batman and Superman.
Furthermore, if the Superman relaunch Man of Steel does as well as early reports suggest it might, Zack Snyder could direct the team effort. Read More »

The remake of The Crow — which has director F. Javier Gutierrez attached — has gone through a few iterations over the past couple years. Stephen Norrington and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo have been in talks to direct, and actors such as Bradley Cooper and Mark Wahlberg have been attached to play the lead role, but eventually fell away. Neither guy seemed right to play musician Alex Draven, given supernatural life after death in order to avenge the murder of he and his girlfriend.
Now there’s a report that James McAvoy (Wanted, X-Men: First Class, Trance) is in talks to play the lead role. He’s certainly a much more suitable choice than other actors we’ve heard. Read More »
UPDATE: Drew Karpyshyn has responded to this rumor. Read his response below.
And you thought we were going to get through a week without a juicy Star Wars rumor? Think again. Ain’t It Cool News is reporting one of the many (many) ideas currently floating around Lucasfilm (such as the Han Solo, Boba Fett and Yoda movies) is a movie version of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

Marvel teamed up characters in The Avengers, DC is teaming up heroes for Justice League, and now Disney could have the option to team up two of their own iconic characters. Gary K. Wolf, creator of Roger Rabbit, is saying a proposal for a film called The Stooge is being prepared for Disney executives. The film would be a fully-animated buddy comedy starring Roger Rabbit and Mickey Mouse. Though the proposal shares a title with a 1952 film starring Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, it would likely be very different from that comedy.
According to Wolf, The Stooge is “a real development proposal” for a Disney/Pixar movie which has concept art and a producer, Erik von Wodtke, who is talking to screenwriters and directors about possibly getting the film made. Read More »
Another day, another edition of Star Wars Bits. This week’s biggest news, so far, is the rumor that not only is Harrison Ford returning for Star Wars Episode VII, but that Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill will too.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Take this with a good degree of caution, but Ultimate Spider-Man trainspotters may enjoy the speculation, at least.
As director Marc Webb has been posting photos from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, he has hinted at something unexpected. His last photo showed what could be a morgue locker, or some much more compact storage unit, along with a “happy birthday” tag. Each item seems pretty innocuous, but there is rampant speculation that taken together, and in context with the Ultimate Spider-Man comic series, they suggest that Venom is coming back to the big screen in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
