Turns out The Wolverine might not be totally set in Japan. Or at least that's what Hugh Jackman told MTV News.

Scott Porter of Friday Night Lights fame spoke to io9 what it's like to voice Cyclops in the new X-Men cartoon coming to G4. Here's a taste:

It was about playing the reality of the situation around him as opposed to imitating another person's voice. Being able to voice the leader of the X-Men my first time out with voice work is a huge blessing. Taking up the mantle of Scott Summers was definitely nerve-wracking! Doing voice work for the X-Men anime and [the video game] X-Men: Destiny, those projects were definitely for me.

Finally, here's an official look, thanks to Superhero Hype, of Nightwing in Batman: Arkham City. Go there to read how to play him.

Think you saw everything there was to see in The Avengers trailer? Think again. Comic Book Movie has a list of five things you probably missed.

Speaking of The Avengers trailer, curious why Parmount gets a credit but not Disney? Variety has the scoop:

Knowing Disney wanted to turn "The Avengers" into a franchise and bank on the success of "Iron Man" after buying Marvel for $4 billion, Par's brass negotiated a deal in which it continues to collect 8% of the B.O. as part of fees it would have earned for distribbing the pic, as it did with the two "Iron Man" pics, "Thor" and "Captain America." It gets 9% for "Iron Man 3."

Comic Book Movie says this and a few other pieces of art are actually leaked from upcoming Amazing Spider-Man promos. We're skeptical.Nacho Vigalondo gave Crave Online an update on his adaptation of Mark Millar's Supercrooks. There's a bunch in the interview and here's a taste:

I'm involved in Supercrooks and Windows. Those are my next projects and it really depends on them what comes first. Those are two projects are in a really advanced situation. I didn't write them. The scripts are already made so I hope they happen. Supercrooks is not a superhero film. It's a supervillain film. Mark Millar explained to me that when you watch The Godfather, it's about criminals all the time. You don't get to see the cops in those films. It's always about the mafia. In this case it's the same. We're going to show only supervillains and not superheroes. Superheroes are in the background.
