Earlier today, you read some words from "Green Lantern" star Mark Strong about the difficulty of taking part in the production of such an effects-heavy film. Only one "Green Lantern" trailer has been released so far, and while there are some standout moments, a fair number of fans criticized the apparently unfinished look of some of the visual effects on display.

According to Warner Bros boss Jeff Robinov, the effects team's huge workload is actually a big part of the reason why we haven't seen much in the way of promotional video content from the film yet.

"We are on a learning curve in getting 3-D materials and marketing materials on the same schedule," he told the Los Angeles Times. Read More...

"Green Lantern" is out on June 17, with Ryan Reynolds starring as the classic DC Comics superhero. Only one trailer for the movie has been released so far, a fact which can likely be attributed to ongoing work on the abundance of digital effects that will be be included in the final cut.

Also appearing in the film is "Sherlock Holmes" star Mark Strong as Sinestro, and the actor talked a little about the experience of participating in such an effects-heavy production in a recent interview.

"[There's] all this Earth-bound stuff and there's space stuff. And obviously the space stuff was all in a big green warehouse and we all wore grey tracksuits with dots on," he told LeicesterSquareTV (via ComicBookMovie) on the red carpet at the 2011 Empire Awards. Read More...

For more than a decade now, the notion of a "Justice League" movie has been one of the great, golden egg-laying geese of the comic book movie world. On paper, it's brilliant: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Aquaman and any number of other DC superheroes all in one movie. What red-blooded comic book geek wouldn't want to see that?

Now it turns out that such a thing might actually be happening, confirmed directly from a source who ought to know a thing or two about what's upcoming for DC Comics on the big screen.

Warner Bros. boss Jeff Robinov must have dropped the info bomb in a rather off-handed way during his interview for a recent Los Angeles Times profile. There's no direct quote regarding "Justice Leage" in the story; the writer instead paraphrases Robinov. Read More...

Gary Oldman told MTV in a recent interview that Christopher Nolan will bring the story back around to his first Batman movie in next year's trilogy-capper, "The Dark Knight Rises." Considering the level of security surrounding your typical Nolan movie, this was a lot of information.

Oldman spilled a few more beans in another recent chat, speaking on the subject of script security and confirming that he and fellow star Tom Hardy will be sharing some screen time.

"All I can say is it's a great story [with a] really great script. He's outdone himself from 'The Dark Knight.' It's fantastic," Oldman said, going on to mention that this marks yet another engagement with Hardy, following their work together on the upcoming films "The Wettest Country" and "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy." He added, "I have quite a bit to do with Tom in this one." Read More...

The Amazing Spider-ManWith great power comes great responsibility. Sony is the wielder of that great power now, holding the reins to a classic Marvel Comics franchise as Marc Webb continues work on his reboot, "The Amazing Spider-Man."

The studio's responsibility is to the fans, in doing justice to the much-loved character and it's one that Sony is apparently taking seriously too. A writer has already been confirmed for an "Amazing Spider-Man" sequel even as production continues on the planned July 3, 2012 release.

James Vanderbilt, who penned the script that Webb is currently shooting with, is now officially set to return to pen the sequel, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. The writer met with the studio earlier this week, follow-up plot outline in hand, and walked away with a brand-new gig to keep him busy. Read More...

With all of the lead roles (seemingly) now squared away, the rest of the cast of Christopher Nolan's trilogy-capper "The Dark Knight Rises" is coming together. In fact, a new name has just been confirmed: Juno Temple.

The young actress joins the cast as a "street-smart Gotham girl," Variety reports.

How large a role her character will play in the story is a mystery, but Variety probably rightly guesses that, given the general character description and lack of a proper name, it's a small part. Read More...

Toward the end of last year, Warner Bros TV was reported to be working on developing an adaptation of the Neil Gaiman graphic novel series. Then "Supernatural" creator Eric Kripke, a top choice to develop the project, said that there's nothing happening on the "Sandman" front, "at least not for this season." Then DC Entertainment COO Geoff Johns took to Twitter to reassure everyone that the series is happening, and Gaiman is involved.

That was last week. This week, Gaiman himself has spoken up to address what's going on. Read More...

Last week was an emotional roller-coaster here on MTV Splash Page. On one hand, you had the devastating news that Darren Aronofsky stepped away from directing "The Wolverine." And on the other, David Slade, a former front-runner for the "Wolverine" gig, signed on to direct a new Daredevil movie.

While the original report described Slade's movie as "a continuation of the saga," that may not actually be the case.

The director took to Twitter over the weekend with a series of updates on "Daredevil" and other projects. In one particularly telling post, he writes, "It will [bear] no relation to the previous Daredevil movie in any way. We are at early planning stages and have not yet discussed any cast."
