Guillermo Del Toro spoke to io9 and offered an update on the Hulk TV show:

We delivered the screenplay to the network. I have a very specific idea of how to do it, and we're waiting for the green light. We know all the iterations of the Hulk pretty good. We've read all the essential stories, and we're then riffing on that. There are so many incarnations and ideas. Jeph Loeb — who did a good run [on Hulk: Grey] — is involved, and I love Peter David's Hulk. But there's really no part in that mythos that we don't know, so we are trying put our own personal spin on it.

Obviously, 20th Century Fox wants Matthew Vaughn to come back for a sequel to X-Men First Class, as per an interview with Superhero Hype.





Ain't It Cool News has run this photo of the Batcopter, or whatever it's going to be called, in The Dark Knight Rises. They say it will be a helicopter with blades added in post production. This is probably the best look at it yet.

And yet again, we have a detailed, spoiler-filled description of The Dark Knight Rises prologue. I think this is actually the most plausible yet and focuses on the origins of Bane.

The IMDB (via CBM) has an actor listed as playing a young Clark Kent in Man of Steel. His name is Cooper Timberline. If it's true, I guess we see Clark arriving on Earth in the film.
