Ryan Reynolds will make his debut as Hal Jordan next week in "Green Lantern," but for the Marvel-inclined masses, there's another upcoming Reynolds role that's foremost on their minds: mouthy mercenary Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool.

During the press junket for "Green Lantern," MTV News made sure to ask Reynolds about the status of Deadpool's solo film, which recently snagged visual-effects veteran Tim Miller as its director.

"I love Tim," Reynolds told MTV News. "Tim is someone who we all vetted through and through. He's a guy who captures the spirit of it, and he's also an incredible visual artist." Read More...

The Walking DeadWe still have a while to wait before "The Walking Dead" shambles back to television screens, but much like last season, AMC seems intent on keeping fans sated with new images and other sneak peeks between now and the Season Two premiere.

Yesterday, the network debuted two new images from the now-filming second season of the series, and as expected, they're pretty gruesome in the most zombie-tastic way.

"At this moment, I'm standing on a stretch of post-apocalypse interstate in Georgia, littered with abandoned cars and blessing my good luck to be reunited with our amazing cast, and our fantastic directors and crew," wrote series Executive Producer/Writer/Director Frank Darabont on AMC's official "Walking Dead" blog. "Across the board, there are none better. It's great to be shooting again. I think we've embarked on a great season." Read More...


Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesIt's been almost a year since our last update on the planned reboot of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie franchise, but there's apparently been some recent movement on the project, with Paramount hiring a new writing duo to bring the heroes in a half-shell back to the big screen.

"Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" scribes Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec have been hired to rewrite the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" script initially penned by "Iron Man" writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, according to Deadline. The pair previously collaborated on Louis Letterier's upcoming film "Now You See Me."

The most recent reports had the film pegged to be a hybrid of live-action and CGI effects, with Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form producing the film. Read More...

The Walking DeadBack in February, we gave you an early look at McFarlane Toys' new line of action figures based on "The Walking Dead" television series and comic before they debuted at Toy Fair 2011. Today, we have two more exclusive previews of figures from "The Walking Dead" — including one particular fan-favorite character you won't find in the comics.

In the AMC television series, Norman Reedus plays Daryl Dixon, a crossbow-wielding survivalist who has become one of the most popular characters in the show. As you can tell from the exclusive images we're debuting here on Splash Page, the figure is pretty great likeness of Daryl — right down to the dead squirrels hanging from his belt. Read More...


SupermanYou don't need to be a die-hard fan of the Man of Steel to get excited about today's release of "Superman: The Motion Picture Anthology (1978-2006)."

The collection also includes a long list of documentaries and bonus features that will make comics and movie fans drool.

In the run-up to the release of the anthology, I spoke to celebrated "Superman: The Movie" director Richard Donner, who made the world believe a man could fly more than 30 years ago. Read More...

"That's Abin Sur," Reynolds said of the corpse of Hal's predecessor, the purple-skinned Green Lantern whose ring finds its way to Hal's finger. "I don't think he's going to make it." Read More...
