Cameras Finally Start Spinning on Spider-Man

The new Spider-Man reboot has officially begun shooting. Set pictures of Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy (sporting her band new blonde hair) and Chris Zylka as Flash Thompson have surfaced. Given the garb and expressions of the actors, it appears to be a funeral scene (possibly Uncle Ben’s or Gwen’s father, Captain Stacy) You can find more pictures at SuperHeroHype!

Official Description of X-Men: First Class
This week we finally got the official description for the upcoming Matthew Vaughn flick:

X-Men First Class charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.

It’s Everything You Hoped and Prey-ed For!

Christopher Nolan reportedly turned in the script for The Dark Knight Rises to the Warner Bros. execs earlier this week and rumors are already flying in faster than a batarang! ComicBookMovie.com is reporting that the script could be based on the 1990 “Prey” storyline, which features Dr. Hugo Strange and Catwoman as villains. Tom Hardy’s casting and the call for a female villain seem to support this rumor, although it will likely be quite some time before it is officially confirmed. Additionally, it looks as though Wayne Manor and the Batcave will appear in the film. The crew is supposedly looking at the locations originally used for the iconic sets in Batman Begins, but again. Given that it was mentioned in The Dark Knight that the mansion and the cave were both in the process of being rebuilt, this comes as no big surprise.
