Zoe SaldanaHardly a week goes by without "The Losers" being mentioned in the Twitter Report, thanks in large to the constant updating from both the cast as well as the comic book's creators, Andy Diggle and Jock.

While we've already seen the full line-up of "The Losers" cast in one form or another, today brings the first official shot of Zoe Saldana as Aisha—the lone female member of the betrayed intelligence operatives—courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.

The image isn't exactly action-packed, but it's certainly our best look yet at Saldana as Aisha, who Entertainment Weekly described as "a mysterious Middle-Eastern hellion." Diggle, who recently visited the Puerto Rico-based production set, echoed that description of the character. Read More...

The FlashDC Comics' Silver Age has been getting plenty of Hollywood attention in "Green Lantern" these days, but the publisher's significantly speedier hero the Flash has been jumping his share of hurdles on the way to the big screen.

Not only has Adam Brody's planned Flash appearance in "Justice League: Mortal" been indefinitely sidelined by Warner Brothers, now it seems the hero's planned standalone film will have to run on without the involvement of "The Dark Knight" producer Charles Roven.

In an interview with IGN, Roven discussed his former attachment to the project, which hadn't had much traction since last year. Read More...

Where Evils DareWriter Tony Lee, who previously spoke to MTV News about his graphic-novel sequel to Bram Stoker's "Dracula," is dipping into the world of vampires once again. This time around, his new series debuts on DC's webcomic platform Zuda Comics, and he's created a trailer that should catch the attention of a certain vampire-friendly franchise's fanbase.

"Nazi Vampires Don't Sparkle," claims the YouTube trailer for "Where Evils Dare," Lee's new comic with artist Stefano Martino.

"Twilight" comparisons aside, Lee's comic promises a story that's equal parts "The Dirty Dozen" and "Van Helsing," with Allied soldiers battling Adolf Hitler's 666 Platoon—an army of "vampires, werewolves and remote-controlled zombie Nazis led by Captain Von Frankenstein and the SS Colonel Dracula."

The Joker BlogsThere was no shortage of posthumous awards for Heath Ledger's portrayal of The Joker in "The Dark Knight," and fans have only added to the fame of the late actor's unique take on the character by donning convention costumes inspired by the character and creating animated skits and mash-ups. And then there's The Joker Blogs.

The video series, which currently includes 17 episodes posted over the last year, claims to be a collection of taped therapy sessions between Joker and Dr. Harleen Quinzel (destined to become the Joker's accomplice, Harley Quinn) conducted at Gotham's infamous Arkham Asylum. It also features an impressively spot-on impression of Ledger's freakishly scary Joker. Read More...

Ryan ReynoldsRyan Reynolds may be tackling the roles of two of comics' toughest characters, but that doesn't mean he's immune from the power of Hollywood secrecy. Appearing as a guest on last evening's "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," the actor seemed stoked about portraying both Green Lantern and Deadpool – even if he had to keep his reasons to himself for the most part.

Though Reynolds insisted that he had to stay quiet on the details of the upcoming "Green Lantern" adaptation, he did reveal one important bit of information – a rough timetable for filming. Read More...

When Kevin Smith dropped by Splash Page HQ this week to talk about his new book, "Shootin' The Sh*t With Kevin Smith: The Best of the SModcast," it was only natural that we pick his brain about some of the comics-related projects on his plate these days—including, of course, his current DC series "Batman: The Widening Gyre."

Previously, Smith told us he'll be introducing a brand new character to the DC universe in "Gyre." While this character made a brief appearance in the series' first issue, the second issue arrives on shelves today with more info about Gotham's mysterious new vigilante. Check out the following video for Smith's thoughts about the character and the series, and consider this your SPOILER ALERT!




"Issue 2, that's where you finally meet our character, the character that me and ['Gyre' artist] Walter Flanagan came up with," Smith told MTV News. "His name is Baphomet. I don't think you learn that until issue 3, but f--- it. I spoiled it." Read More...

Yesterday, I gave you the full breakdown on the "Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths" featurette that appeared on the DVD for DC's "Superman/Batman: Public Enemies" animated movie. Not only did we get our first look at Ultraman, Power Ring and the rest of the JLA's alternate-universe counterparts, The Crime Syndicate, but we also found out about the origins of the next animated feature from the DC Universe.

However, since my recap and the shoddy-at-best images I posted only go so far, here's an exclusive video preview of "Crisis On Two Earths," courtesy of the good folks at DC and Warner Bros. Premiere. I'm pretty sure you'll agree that it's even better than I described it—and that James Woods makes a pretty terrifying Owlman.

Green LanternBy Blair Marnell

The “Green Lantern” feature film may soon be moving its beleaguered production to Mexico; which would negate the previously rumored shift to Louisiana.

According to Inside Film, the decision hasn’t been finalized yet. But if the production were to remain in Australia, it would cost an additional $20 million to make.

The site quotes an anonymous source allegedly connected with the studio as saying, “We still haven’t given up on ‘Green Lantern,' but the way the exchange rate is going up it’s looking more and more unlikely.” Read More...
