Movie News: Everything comics

With hot stuff Eric Bana dropped out of any possible Hulk sequels, and Marvel desperate to cash in, rumor mill says David Duchovny may step in to play Bruce Banner. Mulder? What have you wrought?

Meanwhile, in a more sucessful corner of the Marvel movieverse, Bryce Dallas Howard may play Peter Parker’s next love interest, Gwen Stacy, putting giant continuty loops in the heads of anyone who reads Spiderman comics. Word is that Howard will dye.

And of course, Superman is over budget. This better be the most super movie ever.

And because it’s just not a superhero post without the X-Men, here’s some musings on Professor X and Magneto from John at the Movie Blog.

Sith, Spidey showdown a draw

Sith has tied the Spider-Man 2 record for fastest to $200 million, and it’s now (officially) the biggest movie of 2005.

The Associated Press asks what’s left for fans to fawn over with Star Wars and Star Trek both at an end. They suggest Harry Potter, perhaps not realizing that HP is already the biggest fish in the fandom pond these days. Not to mention Serenity and Battlestar Galactica, which are poised to be the ‘new’ Wars and Trek, respectively.

Aside from box office tidbits, SW news is getting to be scarce again. I’ll have to go back to normal posting, oh horrors!
