“I Heard it Through the Grapevine!”

So, I was going to save these news stories/rumors for “Movie News Monday,” but the news was just so pressing that it couldn’t wait until Monday. Here is the latest “buzz” on some of the most recent Superhero Stories.

1- Batman rumors: Tom Hardy has been announced as part of the untitled Batman 3 project. Those of you who may have seen Christopher Nolan’s most recent blockbuster (a little film called Inception, perhaps you’ve heard of it!) may recognize Hardy has the British accent-toting suave comic relief in the film. Although nothing has been officially confirmed, leaked rumors have spread that Hardy will not only have a lead role in Batman3, but that he will also be an enemy. Who? Well, all rumors point to him playing the role of Killer Croc! Again, this is an unconfirmed rumor, but it has spread from the tweets of a famous comicbook writer (Mark Millar). We’ll see! Joseph Gordon-Levitt still looks pretty promising to be the one to play as The Riddler in Batman3 as well. Who do you think should be the villain?

2- Spiderman rumors: Rhys Ifans has been announced as part of the 3D Spiderman reboot project. Of course Andrew Garfield will be Peter Parker, and Emma Stone will be Gwen Stacy, but who will Ifans be? Harry Osborne? Well, apparently, rumor has reached Hollywood and more that Ifans will be playing the role of Dr. Curt Conners (A.K.A. The Lizard). Remember how in Spiderman2 we thought we might see The Lizard because of Dylan Baker’s performance as Dr. Conners? Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill, Little Nicky, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1) is the latest addition to the Spiderman family and I, for one, am curious to see who else they will throw into the mix. The plot thickens!!

Rhys Ifans--no one still knows who he is....

3- Superman rumors: Well, they finally picked the director (Zack Snyder), haven’t picked the actor for Superman yet, but already, rumors have spread about the villain for the new Superman film. In a recent interview, Zack Snyder stated that rumors about General Zod (Superman II) being the villain for the film he will direct are exactly that….rumors. While that may be interesting, don’t count on seeing General Zod in a new movie anytime soon.

Have you heard of any other rumors out there? Flash, Green Lantern, Avengers, Justice League, Thor, Wonder Woman?

Pretty interesting stuff! Keep a lookout for further developments to these stories. You saw it here first!

As always, Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!



  1. Hey I’m copying you with my superhero stuff, he..he.. no, it’s actually been in my draft folder for quite a while but the news kept getting updated!

    Well, about the Zod thing, it’s just a rumor but he didn’t shut down the idea completely. So there is a chance he might still be used. I’m kinda tired of Lex Luthor so I hope they go with somebody else.

    Btw, sorry I’m behind on my emails but I’ll get to yours as soon as I’m able to. But first I just want to say THANK YOU for putting my Fantasy Movie Pitch on your sidebar… how kind of you! Btw, I’ve added you to my blogroll as well, been meaning to do that for a while. Have a great weekend!


    • haha! it’s interesting when the same stories pop up all over the place! I was laughing watching all the news change back and forth! I like superhero flicks…I am one (TheScarletSp1der) 🙂 so I am excited to see what will happen with Batman, Superman, and more….but I just hope they don’t start ruining it with too many. I heard an unconfirmed rumor about Antman getting his own film. That concerns me a little. We’ll see.

      Hey! Thanks for adding me to your blogroll! an honor! much appreciated! Your fantasy draft pick was such a cool idea and well thought up. It was more than worthy of my sidebar link! Gotta go comment on your superhero story now! Have a good weekend! happy watching!
