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.
- We get a preview look at next week’s Flash 5, where the “Dastardly Death of the Rogues” storyline continues, thanks to DC Universe: The Source.
- Christopher Nolan is looking for a director for the next Superman film, which he will be responsible for producing. Deadline has the list of potential directors, which includes Tony Scott (Unstoppable), Matt Reeves (Let Me In), Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles), Duncan Jones (Source Code), and Watchmen‘s Zack Snyder.
- Spidey may get not one, but two love interests in Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot. According to Variety, Emma Stone (Easy A) may be playing Mary Jane Watson, while Mia Wasikowska (Alice In Wonderland) might be appearing as Gwen Stacey.
- Chloe Moretz (Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass) seems determined to stay in the geek-genre realm, much to the delight of her fans. Having recently wrapped up Let Me In, Moretz is now signed to star in the adaptation of Dark Horse Comics’ Emily The Strange.
- In an interview with IGN, Ed Norton confirmed that he was interested in, and pursuing, the role of The Riddler in Christopher Nolan’s next Batman film.
- On his personal website, Kurt Busiek discussed the closing of DC’s WildStorm imprint, and assured fans that he doesn’t believe that this even comes close to spelling the end of his very popular Astro City.
- The story of Lex Luthor in the pages of Action Comics continues as Luthor finds his struggle for new power putting him in direct opposition with Grodd.
- According to a local show on the BBC, and as brought to the attention of those of us across the pond by Bleeding Cool, Stephen Fry (Bones), has signed on to play Sherlock’s brother in the sequel to the Robert Downey, Jr./Jude Law version of Sherlock Holmes.
