ComingSoon.net is clearing up the rumor that has been rife across the internet. They say that Marvel has never approached Dominic Purcell about the title role in "The Incredible Hulk." Purcell says: "The whole thing was a rumor. Marvel never approached me. It was just a rumor." Would he think about it, if asked? "Depending, you know? Really, I loved the first 'Hulk.' Obviously, if they can come up with that kind of concept, I would have loved to have done it, but they didn't and again, it was just all rumor."

In The Animator's Guild weblog posts a report that a "Turok, Son of Stone" direct-to-video animated movie is in the works. That report is confirmed in an interview with Tad Stones at the Major Spoilers weblog. Stones states that he is "starting production" on the project and has recruited a number of Warner Brothers Animation alumni to be a part of it. Based on the 1954 Dell comic book about a pre-Colombian Indian hunting dinosaurs in a hidden land the comics moved through two more publishers before ceasing publication in 1998. Turok was also the basis for a successful video game for the Nintendo 64 system.
