We don’t know much about the new Superman movie. We’ve heard from a few sources that Zod is the villain, although even that Zack Snyder has written off as just a rumor. While another report claimed that David Goyer’s script follows Clark Kent, a journalist traveling the world “trying to decide if he should, in fact, even become Superman.” Snyder has said that the film is not a remake, won’t be connected at all to the Richard Donner films, based on any particular comic, and will probably feature the character’s early days. And everyone is wondering who will play Superman this time around, and now we have a report that claims they are looking for someone aged 35-40 to play the man of steel.

With Zack Snyder confirmed to direct Superman, questions about the film have turned to other topics: who will star, and what will the film be about? The second question has a vague answer now, as Mr. Snyder has said that the film is not a remake or based on any particular comic, and will feature the character’s early days. Read More »
Brandon Routh won’t be in the new Zack Snyder-directed Superman, or so we’re told. Which is too bad; after meeting resistance when he first got the role, I think a lot of people have grown used to the idea of Mr. Routh as Superman. Earning good will in Scott Pilgrim didn’t hurt, through the rather dire-looking Dylan Dog might. Regardless, now he’s booked a role in the indie Missing William. He may play opposite real-life wife Courtney Ford, who is in talks for the lead female role.
Mr. Routh will be the childhood sweetheart of a woman who is trying to nurse her husband to health after he’s injured in a fight. A love triangle naturally develops, “with the woman torn between the brain-damaged husband she loves and the hunky former flame who got away.” Kenn Macrae will direct from a script by Daniel McKinnon.

We’ve wondered when we’d see a trailer for the Dylan Dog comic book adaptation Dead of Night, and now that a sales trailer has arrived, it’s easy to see why so little material has been forthcoming. This one looks pretty terrible. Already earning frequent comparisons to Buffy the Vampire Slayer thanks to over-lit scenes, TV-worthy staging and the very Buffy-like makeup, it isn’t too difficult to guess why this one doesn’t yet have distribution.

It’s over two years now that we’ve been hearing about TMNT director Kevin Munroe‘s adaptation of the Italian comic series Dylan Dog. News that Brandon Routh would play the character first bubbled up in early 2008, and the film shot last year. It doesn’t yet have a US distributor (hence a lack of major presence at Comic Con this year) but will premiere in Italy later this year.
Now there’s an Italian news report that has the first clips of footage, including shots of Routh in character. Read More »
