JON FAVREAU on TONY STARK (played by Robert Downey Jr.):

“Tony’s expected to be a role model and I don’t think he’s ready to be one. He’s under a great deal of pressure and when you’re under pressure, I think you find outlets for that.”

Probably alluding to the characters on-again / off-again battle with alcoholism as portrayed in the Iron Man comic book…

MICKEY ROURKE on what to expect from his character Whiplash:

“…my Iron Man suit weighs 23lb. It’s sort of a half-suit, with half my skin showing, with lots of Russian tattoos, because [Whiplash is just] out of a Russian-zone prison.”

Currently filming, the JON FAVREAU directed IRON MAN sequel has a release date of May 7th, 2010 and in addition to Downey Jr. stars; Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sam Rockwell, Don Cheadle, Garry Shandling, Kate Mara, Paul Bettany, Jon Favreau, and Clark Gregg.

With no lead officially cast in Martin (Casino Royale) Campbell’s take on the DC Comics superhero Green Lantern, Warner Bros. has decided to push the Emerald Knight’s big screen debut back six months to June 17, 2011 from its original scheduled date of December 17, 2010. No word whether this will affect the plans to start shooting in Australia in September or whether the move is to give Campbell more time for post-production and special FX.

Casting for the lead has included Chris Pine from the upcoming STAR TREK movie and BRIAN AUSTIN GREEN (TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES, BEVERY HILLS: 90210) but nothing is confirmed yet.

‘SUPERMAN’ Sequel Movie Update: BIZARRO Themed Script Review Posted

April 11, 2009

BRANDON ROUTH As SUPERMAN

Check out an interesting review of a Bizarro SUPERMAN script that’s getting some buzz HERE.

The last we heard about the SUPERMAN franchise on the THRALL WORLD blogzine was on Halloween of last year when BRANDON ROUTH said THIS.

My take on the review: Bizarro sounds a little bit like the Hulk. Ridiculously powerful, misunderstood, and a margially controllable wild card. General Zod and Ursa also are back (from Superman 2) and heavily involved. It sounds like an interesting concept for a graphic novel idea but I seriously doubt that this is the way they will go with retooling the Superman movie franchise.
