Iron Man 2, Billy Batson and The Legend of Shazam!, TV DVD News, Tron 2.0, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo, Comic Previews

Iron Man 2

Comic Book Resources News posted this story that says Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell may well be the May 7, 2010 release movie's villains.

Billy Batson and The Legend of Shazam!

According to this story in ScreenRant the film is dead. Writer John August says: "In retrospect, I can point to two summer Warner Bros. movies that I believe defined the real issue at hand: Speed Racer and The Dark Knight. The first flopped; the second triumphed. Given only those two examples, one can understand why a studio might wish for their movies to be more like the latter. But to do so ignores the success of Iron Man, which spend most of its running time as a comedic origin story, and the even more pertinent example of WB??s own Harry Potter series. I tried to make this case, to no avail."

TV DVD News has posted info about "The Zeta Project" (Season 1) here, "Tales from the Darkside" (Season 1) here, "Steve Canyon" (Vol. 2) here, "The Spectacular Spider-Man" (Vol. 2 & 3) here, "The Waltons" (Season 9) here, "Doctor Who" (Battlefield & E-Space Trilogy) here.
