Batman vs. Superman

Wolfgang Peterson told IF Magazine said that he had a deal with Warner Brothers, he said: "I was very close to doing 'Batman vs. Superman' and 'Troy' with Warner Bros. and I said 'let me do both.' One first, then the other. I didn't have to make a decision, because they pulled the idea of 'Batman vs. Superman', because they got nervous that maybe [they should] start with an individual Superman film and Batman film. At one point, maybe when I'm 80 I'll get to do 'Batman vs. Superman' with a real old Christian Bale."

Witchblade Anime

The entire first episode is online and viewable free here!


Matthew Vaughn spoke to Empire Online the upcoming project: "My only concern initially was that it's another fantasy film [after 'Stardust'], but it's different in the sense that it's a superhero film set in the world of fantasy. You've got Thor and Odin and it's set in Asgard -- it's not going to be like Lord of the Rings or even Narnia. I think it's important to keep it comic book. We're not doing the Thor of Norse mythology. We're doing the Marvel Thor."

Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy

Tom Hanks will join with HBO to adapt Vincent Bugliosi's "Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy" as a 10-part miniseries. The book is a huge book that fights to support the Warren Commision Report. Bugliosi said: "Seventy-five percent of the American public believes in the falsehood that there was a conspiracy in the assassination of President Kennedy, and only 19 percent accept the findings of the Warren Commission that Oswald acted alone."

Harry Potter And The Half-blood Prince.

Jim Broadbent has been cast as Harry Potter's latest teacher Horace Slughorn in "Harry Potter And The Half-blood Prince." Broadbent told the site "Slughorn is drawn back out of retirement because he's got some secrets Harry and (headmaster) Dumbledore need in the battle against the Death Eaters. He's quite star-struck as a teacher, and he's drawn back into the fold because he likes to notch up celebrity students."

The Hacksaw, the Rose & the Parthenon Parrot
Sebastian Claus was known as an authority on supernatural activity, but, this was something neither he nor his extraordinary team had ever encountered: a book whose owners all died at the hands of fictional characters. Even when Paranormal P.I. Harriett Dante was brought into the case, nobody was aware of just how bizarre this was going to get. And if they don't solve this riddle, the world will end in fire!
