MTV News spoke here with artist John Romita, Jr. "There's a comic book that Nicolas Cage's character has drawn as a shrine to his victims. I don't need to do as many drawings as you think, but they're able to do the animation with models that I've drawn."


Sci Fi Wire talked here with Greg Grunberg about his character, Matt Parkman, in the upcoming season. Grunberg said: "I love it because it's more character-based. The show became all about saving the world, and it's very abstract. It's kind of hard to grasp that. What does that mean? It's very spectacular, and it's fun, but then if you do it every week, it doesn't mean anything. And if everybody has powers, it doesn't mean anything. So this year it's kind of getting back to season one, where it's all about the characters just wanting to be real and normal."

Spider-Man TV

CinemaSpy tells us here that Sony has given up all TV rights for the Web-slinger. The question is, what will Disney do now?

Hitfix reports here that Guy Ritchie has signed to direct the DC Comics adaptation. The Joel Silver/Warner Brothers 2010 film will be at least a PG, possibly PG 13.

Iron Man 2

Ain't It Cool News is saying here that both the new film and the original will be transformed into the 3D format. Iron Man 2 opens on May 7, 2010.
