Speeding Bullets: Friday, April 23, 2010

from the Comic Hero News staff
There’s a lot that happens in the world of superheroes everyday, and we at Comic Hero News don’t have the ability to write up a full story about everything, as much as we’d like to. So, we bring you Speeding Bullets – for all of those pieces of news that are fired our way that are worth noticing, but don’t merit a full story in their own right.

  • The 3-D revolution continues. Deadline has learned that M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender is going to be converted to 3-D before its July 2, 2010 release.
  • Gregg Hurwitz spoke to Comic Book Movie about his work writing Marvel’s Moon Knight, and about the possibility of seeing the character make the move to film.
  • More 3-D news! The Hollywood Reporter tells us that Sony has pushed back the release of Michael Gondry’s The Green Hornet from a December 22, 2010 to a January 14, 2011 release, in order to convert that film to 3-D as well. This has the effect of taking the Seth Rogen-starring film out of competition with Tron Legacy. Sony will also move the release of Priest from January 14 to March 4.
  • According to a press release from Archie Comics, the gang at Riverdale will soon be joined by their first openly gay character, Kevin Keller. From what I’ve seen in the preview, Kevin seems to be portrayed relatively free of stereotypes, so, good on them for adding a little diversity.
  • Angelina Jolie’s Fox was definitely one of the selling points of Wanted. So, with her character having been killed, and Jolie resistant to returning for a sequel, who could the filmmakers add to the film to fill her shoes? According to a rumor from E! Online, how about Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart?
