Not too much happening in the comic book world right now. Our link dump brought in a lot of sort of comics related MOVIE AND TV NEWS, however, so we’ll call this our special ALL-ENTERTAINMENT POST at The Beat!
Hollywood hunk George Clooney is warning comic book fans not to get too excited about the prospect of seeing Batman and Spiderman fight it out in his new movie The Good German, the scene features two actors trying not to re-injure their backs.
It seems former Batman Clooney fights Spider-Man Tobey Maguire in the film, but both were guarding their bad backs, so it is really nothing to see.
Yahoo! Movie News reported that a former assistant was suing Peters for sexual harassment during the production of Superman Returns. The woman charged Peters with some pretty sleazy behavior including exposing himself to her while her 3-year-old daughter was in the room. The suit also accuses Peters of “creating a hostile work environment” — considering the suit contains accusations of Peters climbing into her hotel bed uninvited, groping and offensive comments, “hostile work environment” seems like an understatement.
Hm, could this be where all those scenes of Superman stalking Lois in SUPERMAN RETURNS came from?
After a lengthy negotiation, Columbia has acquired the screen rights to “The Shadow,” the legendary 1930s pulp hero, for a big-screen adaptation to be produced by Raimi and Josh Donen through their Buckaroo Entertainment banner. Michael Uslan is also producing via his Comic Book Movies, Llc/Branded Entertainment.
Uslan once wrote the Shadow comic book. It was last on theaters in a little-seen Aleb Baldwin version in ’94.
