The Dark Knight Returns

IESB reports here that Jonathan and Christopher Nolan are now working on the script for the 2011 project, accoring to producer Chuck Roven.

Iron Man 2

Variety reports here that Emily Blunt will NOT play the Black Widow in the sequel. Unless she does. It seems she's cast opposite Jack Black in "Gulliver's Travels." The reports says: "While Blunt's reps are still trying to work out scheduling so she can play both roles, it will be an uphill battle because of scheduling overlap. 'Gulliver's Travels' will shoot in the U.K. in late March; 'Iron Man 2' is expected to begin lensing in early April in Manhattan Beach, Calif. Earlier this week it seemed that Marvel Entertainment would have to go back to the drawing board to find an actress to play Natasha Romanoff, the Soviet superspy who moonlights as Black Widow, a beauty in a skintight black costume enhanced by high-tech weaponry. But by late Thursday, it looked like Fox and Blunt's reps were feeling more optimistic that she could do both projects."

TV DVD News has posted info about "The Spectacular Spider-Man" (Vol. 2 & 3) here & here, "Freakazoid!" (Season 2) here, "Hawaii Five-O" (Season 6) here, "The Middleman" (Season 1) here, "Earth: Final Conflict" (Season 1) here, "Supernatural" (Season 4) here.

Logan's Run

The Los Angeles Times says here that the Bryan Singer remake is not as quickly forthcoming as has been previously reported. Singer is quoted as saying: "At the moment, I haven't decided. I really don't know. I'm taking a genuine break. The last four years have been really busy with the miniseries, the TV and the movies. I'm taking a few months to collect myself and figure out what I'm going to do in that regard. We did a lot of development on that movie and a lot of work. To start it up again, I wouldn't start it up again without a full commitment. So I have decisions to make. Right now, that's just hanging around."
