Hulk 2, Gears of War, TV DVD News, Justice League: Mortal, Toy Story Midway Mania, Comic Preview

Hulk 2

According to MTV News director Louis Leterrier told them: "I think that if we get to Hulk 2 I would go to Comic-Con and ask the crowd of people that actually love the movies, which one would you prefer to see, Samson or the Leader?" Leterrier said that he would prefer The Leader, because a face-off between him and the Hulk would be a different than the climactic battle of the first film. He said: "Both are very interesting. [But] there's something unstoppable about [Leader] and it's just not the same thing. It's just different. The fact that he controls stuff with his mind, I just like that. I'm 34 soon to be 35. Kevin [Feige] is 35. We're the same age as the fans. It's not like we don't know what we're doing [but] they are the reason why these movies successful - why we make these movies. I would listen to the fans." You can cast your vote here and let him know what you would choose.

Gears of War

Variety reports here that Len Wiseman will direct the New Line's film based on the Microsoft Game Studios and Epic Games hit video game. Wiseman will develop the story with Chris Morgan. The story tells about a world reeling from an invasion by aliens known as the Locust, and a small team of elite soldiers fighting to retake the planet. They had originally planned for a summer 2009 release, but further development will likely delay the opening.

TV DVD News has posted info about "Gulliver's Travels" (Mini-Series) here, "The Office" (Season 4) here, "The Shield" (Season 6) here, "Heroes" (Season 2) here, "The Incredible Hulk" (Best Buy Sampler) here, "Silverhawks" (Season 1, Vol. 1) here, and "The Fugitive" (CBS Response to Music Issues) here.

Justice League: Mortal

There has been very little good news about this project of late. Now Variety is reporting here that if director George Miller stays with the film, he may well be forced to renegotiate his contract.

Toy Story Midway Mania

Pixar animators joined with the Disney Imagineering team to create an elaborate amusement park ride for Disney's California Adventure Park that adjoins Disneyland. More than 150 computers synchronize the various parts of the ride, that gives visitors the illusion that they have been shrunk to toy size of toys and can interact with other toys. The Los Angeles Times quoted one park visitor from the preview of the ride as saying "it was absolutely mind-blowing. It's not an experience that I typically have [at an amusement park, where] things are typically passive."

this new Incredible Hulk is a lot more fun than the first one with Eric Bana... plus Ed Norton is in his element, doing the "split personality" role
