FROM SPLASHPAGE: Walking around Comic-Con, and talking to the fans in attendance, it's clear there are only two movies coming out next year: "Watchmen" and "Everything Else." Such is the anticipation level for Zack Snyder's adaptation of what is generally considered the greatest graphic novel ever written. Could it possibly get any higher?
Find out what Misters Butler and Snyder have up their collective sleeves on Splash Page.
FROM SPLASH PAGE: Banished by the great wizard Shazam for abusing his powers, Black Adam spends 5,000 years traveling through the universe to exact his revenge. Surely, then, a few more years won't be too much of a hassle.
Based on the popular characters from the "Captain Marvel" comic series, "Billy Batson and the Legend of Shazam," is still a go, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson told MTV News at Comic-Con, but a while away from becoming a reality.
Dwayne spills details over on Splash Page.
Want to commit a crime? Wipe your shoes, wear your gloves, and, for the love of Queen Victoria, do remember to properly dispose of your tobacco ashes -- master detective Sherlock Holmes is coming back to cinemas.
MTV News did a little sleuthing of our own down here in Comic-Con, leaving no clue unturned in discussing the upcoming project with director Guy Ritchie and producer Joel Silver. Ritchie revealed what villain Holmes will face and how his reinvention owes as much to James Bond as it does to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Read More...
Amy Smart just gave away everything about "Crank 2"! "It takes place three months after [Jason Statham's character] falls out of the helicopter. He lives. Uh oh. I gave it away!" she laughed on a press stop at Comic-Con promoting her new horror flick, "Mirrors".
Alright, so we all knew Jason and Amy were coming back even if the first "Crank" ended with a seemingly impossible to follow finale. But who cares about Jason's character when you're talking to the lovely Ms. Smart? Apparently the months since the first one took place have seen her character undergo some lifestyle changes.

So, in case you haven't heard, Thursday's "Twilight" panel at Comic-Con was a huge honkin' success. And just moments before Stephenie Meyer, Kristen Stewart and all the rest went on stage, I got together with the stars in a private room upstairs to interview people like Robert Pattinson But since Hall H was the hardest ticket at Comic-Con to obtain, you might be wondering how I was able to get from one place to another in mere moments.
The answer is simple: "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure."
Do you remember that classic scene where Pee-Wee is trying to get onto the Warner Bros. lot to get his bicycle back? As he's trying to figure out a plan to get past security, he sees the immortal Milton Berle walking towards the gate with a huge entourage. After a moment of inspiration, he jumps into the small group and pretends to laugh at Berle's jokes while they all walk on in together. Instant access. Read More...
FROM SPLASH PAGE: Robert Rodriguez is getting ready for the biggest production of his career, an epic shoot that would last a year and a half. To make room in his schedule, he's pushed back, shifted, moved, or otherwise abandoned nearly every other film on his slate. He's geeked out like he's never been geeked out before - and for this man, that's actually saying something.
Something, but not really anything. Cause good luck getting him to tell you what it is.
And, oh yeah, it's not "Sin City 2," "Barbarella," or "Conan." Read more...
He’s one of fandom’s most celebrated characters, an honor-bound warrior upholding the virtues of an earlier time. And for a moment, he nearly sold his principals down the river simply to get a movie deal.
But thankfully Snake-Eyes, the black-clad, silent warrior of “G.I. Joe” averted a scandal that may have rocked the Internet community to its knees. And all thanks to one very protective father.
“We actually had Snake-Eyes utter one sentence at the very end of the movie,” revealed Lorenzo di Bonaventura, the producer behind the upcoming mega-budget “G.I. Joe” adaptation. “We thought [it] was very clever…Larry didn’t think it was clever at all.” Read More...

The Rock? In a kid-friendly Disney flick? Huh?
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson explained why he jumped on board Disney's "re-imagining" of its 1975 classic, "Escape From Witch Mountain," at the film's Comic-Con panel Thursday afternoon.
"Why me? In a Disney film?" he said, his Cheshire grin growing wider by the second. "Ka-ching!!!"
Judging by the bombastic trailer screened just prior to the panel, though, this ain't your parents' "Witch Mountain." Read More...
Comic-Con just revealed a BIG surprise courtesy of an old school property that's about to get a big screen revamping.
We have just seen footage of a new "Tron" movie and yes, Jeff Bridges is back!
During a Disney panel that was ostensibly set up to promote "Race to Witch Mountain," the studio waited until the very end to reveal their new version of "Tron." And the new film has an official title, "Tr2n." Yes, it is officially a sequel.
Since no casting or release date had even been announced for the film, the debut of fully completed footage, much less starring Jeff Bridges, caught everyone by surprise.
And it wasn't just the fact that Bridges appeared in the teaser, the Oscar-nominated actor appeared to be playing two different characters -- Flynn (from the original) and a younger version of himself.
Here's what was shown: Read More...
