joseph gordon levitt

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s supposedly in talks to join The Dark Knight Rises, although no one knows what character he might portray. Hopefully a shirtless one.

Woah! MTV is bringing back Beavis and Butthead with Mike Judge’s involvement. I am cautiously optimistic about this venture. They’ve also set a premiere date for Teen Wolf, for which I am wholeheartedly pessimistic.

Cobie Smulders is in for Joss’s The Avengers, playing S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Maria Hill. Joss continues his mission to work with every cast member of How I Met Your Mother. Continue reading

golden globes

The Golden Globe nominations have been announced, and they’re all tedious and wrong and stupid, as per yuuzh.

Click here for the ‘splodey and slo-mo heavy Thor trailer. I know this is probably not the intended reaction, but all I got out of this trailer was “Yay! Agent Coulson!!”

why helloooo

Boo. My favorite champion of personal assistants everywhere, Pepper Potts, will not be in The Avengers. There probably wasn’t room for her fabulous wardrobe on set. Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Burglars rot in hell for all eternity!

Due to the fact that I was totes burgled yesterday, I’m reserving the right to spend my lunch break reading a good book and eating pizza instead of blogging as I usually do. Here are two items in the meantime!

the avengers

Joss talks about the cancellation of Dollhouse, his kick-ass Astonishing X-Men comics series and his rewarding foray into filming The Avengers!

super

Director James Gunn gives us a sneak peek at his hotly-anticipated-by-me superhero spoof Super, starring Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page and (!!!) Nathan Fillion. Read my review of Gunn’s (A+!) Slither here. Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Marla's face to melt in tragic explosion of awesomeness tonight!

YES! That’s right! I’m seeing Piranha 3D this very evening and I’m CRAZY! EXCITED! Reviews are crazy good, box office numbers are decent and a sequel’s already in the works!

x-men first classJanuary Jones

Loads of casting news for Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class here, including the news that Mad Men‘s January Jones will play the ultimate ice queen and forever Marla girl crush Emma Frost. Jones certainly has the right look, but I’m not convinced she can actually act. Maybe there’s more than petulant Betty to Jones’s repertoire. I hope so, because I REALLY don’t want this movie to screw up Emma Frost. Read my review of Vaughn’s Kick-Ass here.

Extra! Extra! Moody chick from new Nightmare pulls casting coup of the century!

Yep, despite the terrifying rumor that Scarlett Johansson would be the outrageously inappropriate choice for Lisbeth Salander in the American remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, the far more fitting-in-appearance Rooney Mara has nabbed the covetous role. Although I was rather underwhelmed with her performance in the recent update of Nightmare on Elm Street, I’m willing to suspend judgment. For now.

smallville

I’ve just posted LOADS of Smallville S10 scoop to Watchtower including news on some very exciting return characters!

the avengers

Joss Whedon gives a very newsy interview about what to expect from The Avengers! The answer: amazingness, obviously!

We'll miss you, Harvey.

 Welcome back to News Day Tuesday, where you might find my reporting to be rather lackadaisical because I’m so sad about Harvey Pekar.  Also: I’m lazy.  

  

The 2010 Comic Con schedule is up! Go here to make yourself physically sick with envy, just like me!

  

I’m not sure how I feel about this All About Evil trailer. Perhaps…warmly? Continue reading
