Movie News: Iron Man vs Sub-Mariner

Namor references in Iron Man 2?

Comic Book Movie makes a pretty good case.

Sherlock Holmes 2

On the way. [/Film]

Runaways director and screenwriter

Still excited to see this moving forward. The director's the guy who did Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist. [/Film]

After the break: a Resident Evil 4 poster, a Logan's Run remake, troubles with The Hobbit, and Harrison Ford won't say "fluffy."

Resident Evil 4 Poster

"A New Dimension of Evil" is lame. The rest is awesome. [/Film]

Logan's Run remake

They're talking to a director about it, so I guess it's getting made. I'm kind of happy about the possibilities for this, especially if they stick more closely to the novel (which I read over and over again as a kid) than the '70s version did, fun as that was. [/Film]

Hobbit Troubles

The biggest movie news this past week was that The Hobbit movies are going to be delayed by MGM's financial troubles, which means that Guillermo del Toro is no longer available to direct them (though he's still involved with the scripts). Peter Jackson remains committed to the project, but hopes for his stepping in to direct are dim.

Stuff Nobody Cares About But Me: Morning Glory trailer

JJ Abrams has a -- well, I guess you might could call it a romantic comedy, though that's certainly not the angle the trailer plays up. And though there's obviously a romantic component to the story, I hope that's not the angle the movie focuses on either. It seems to be much more a story of a woman's (Rachel McAdams) discovering what she wants from life, which sounds really trite when I write it like that, but is something that JJ Abrams did pretty well with Felicity and I wouldn't mind seeing him do it again. Also it's got Harrison Ford (in what looks like a fun role for him for a change) and what looks like is going to be a very small, but funny role for Modern Family's Ty Burrell.
