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.
- Despite that the first film is close to a year away from release, Variety tells us that Matt Goldberg has already been hired by Warner Brothers to write a sequel to Green Lantern.
- Speaking of Green Lantern, Mark Strong spoke to MTV’s Splashpage about the arc for Sinestro in the film, and how he starts off as a heroic character – albeit one who clashes with Ryan Reynold’s Hal Jordan. He also describes the fact that Sinestro doesn’t just let the ring do all the work for him in the action sequences.
- SuperHeroHype got the exclusive chance to talk to Adam McKay, who will be directing the big-screen adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darrick Robertson’s The Boys.
- Are we ready for a Basterd of a supervillain? Sony seems to think so. According to The Playlist, the studio is trying to lock Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Basterds) to play the villain in Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot.
- Gregory Noveck, who has been Vice President of Creative Affairs for DC for some time now, announced on Friday that over the next three months, he would be transitioning out of his role at DC Entertainment, according to a report from Deadline.
- It can be a real challenge to go from a 98-pound weakling to the peak of physical perfection – especially in the length of time you have to shoot a movie. That is precisely the challenge Chris Evans has for Captain America: The First Avenger, and he spoke to MTV’s Splashpage about that challenge, and how the costume helped out.
- ComicBookMovie uncovered a report from a British newspaper that claims that Girls Aloud-singer Sarah Harding is up for an unspecified villain role in X-Men: First Class.
