If you have any interest at all in seeing The Double, in which Richard Gere plays a former CIA operative partnered with a young FBI agent (Topher Grace) to hunt down the head of a Russian ring of assassins, I’d say skip this trailer. Because in less than three minutes it might not show you the full movie — there has to be more to The Double than this — but it sure feels like it does. If you’re not that invested, or just morbidly curious as to how a trailer can be totally artless, then carry on past the jump. Read More »

Hey, you know that Wonder Woman series we’ve all been worried about? One lucky comic book fan actually got to watch an early cut of the pilot, and from the sounds of it, most of our fears are totally justified. After the jump, highlights from this first, very early review, plus quotes about The Amazing Spider-Man from Martin Sheen (a.k.a. Peter Parker’s dear Uncle Ben) and future plans from Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.

We’ve already seen photos of Andrew Garfield as both Peter Parker and Spider-Man and Emma Stone as love interest Gwen Stacy in
Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man. Today we have the first looks at Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors a.k.a. The Lizard, and Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben.
The first photo, snapped by college student J. Anthony Hall, shows Ifans and Garfield filming an outdoor scene. Not much is actually happening in the still, but it’s worth noting that Ifans is clearly wearing a bright green sock or covering over his right hand — presumably so it can be made to look missing or changed in post-production. (In the comics, Connors was a war surgeon who lost his arm in a blast. Upon returning to civilian life, he developed a serum from reptilian DNA and regenerated his arm. Then he became a full-on reptilian monster. Oops.)
The other images, from the Daily Mail, feature Sheen and Garfield standing outside in sunglasses. I’d guess that they aren’t in character in these pictures, but I can’t be sure. Scroll past the jump to see the full images. [Coming Soon via Obsessed with Film]
Also after the jump: possible bad news for Wonder Woman fans, possible good news for Pepper Potts fans, and an image from The Avengers set, and details on The Avengers‘ budget and locations.

Sheen will play Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben, so it is likely that Field will play the role of Aunt May.
