It was many months ago that we got our first, albeit low-quality glimpse of Peter Sarsgaard as Green Lantern’s top-heavy telepathic villain, Hector Hammond.

Newly released is an official photo, seen here courtesy of HeyUGuys, featuring Hector pre-psychic transformation and looking rather melancholy.

During Comic Con 2010, Sarsgaard told MTV News that his cranium-enlarging mutation will progress gradually throughout the film. Read More...

Morena BaccarinSure, it’s been cited that Morena Baccarin (of “Firefly” and “Serenity”) was seen at a comic shop near the set of her current vehicle—ABC sci-fi tentpole “V” — collecting "Avengers" back issues, but if any casting rumor could be fueled by sheer physical and circumstantial appropriateness, it’s the one speculating that Baccarin might be cast as Janet van Dyne, a.k.a. The Wasp, the superhero team's most miniscule member.

After all, not only does “Avengers” movie mastermind Joss Whedon have a history of loyalty to the actors cast in his body of work, but Baccarin’s resemblance, topped with the icing that is her current pixie haircut, make the actress the very living likeness of Janet van Dyne.

Speaking to AccessHollywood during NYCC, Baccarin addressed the rumor that she and Whedon might reprise their team-up. Read More...

The AvengersEarlier this week, we reported on the news that Marvel had named veteran writer Jeph Loeb the new Executive Vice President in charge of Television for the company.

As the head of the newly created division within Marvel Entertainment, Loeb's duties reportedly involve the oversight of live-action and animated Marvel television series development, as well as direct-to-DVD features.

But what does all this mean for the big- and small-screen future of Marvel's stable of characters?

I spoke to Loeb about the news to get his take on the new position, how he's approaching the job, and Marvel's vision for their new television division. Read More...

U.K. iPadThe last 24 hours in the Twitter Report feed have been a great time for discovery. The arrival of the iPad in the U.K. led the way, with Dave Gibbons trying to figure out what to carry his new device around in. Andy Diggle and Frazer Irving have been tweeting their struggles as well.

Adobe Photoshop CS5 and New York City's new subway maps also attracted some attention from creators. You can check out what Mike Oeming has been learning and what Fred Van Lente hopes will be be next for NYC's MTA and what Warren Ellis believes will be the true sign that he has made it in the world after the jump.

It seems appropriate I wrap up a trilogy of Felica Day interviews the same day the third and final issue of her comic book, “The Guild,” hits stores. From Dark Horse Comics, the mini-series is based on her hugely popular web series and shows us something we never saw on the show – how the guild met.

Now that all three issues have been released, we discuss her experience writing comics for the first time, her past and future in the genre and what she thinks about her friend Joss Whedon directing “The Avengers,” including her possible role in the film.

Day says so far, the response to “The Guild” comic has been huge. “Actually it has been selling out many, many, many places,” she said. “I’ve gotten so many messages about people, ‘This is the first comic book I’ve ever bought.’ So that’s actually one of the most gratifying things.”

“Then when somebody who’s a real pro comic person, a friend of mine, emails and says, ‘Hey, you did really good on the comic,’ I kind of get relieved,” she said, “because I feel like comic people are the most critical of any of the geek culture. So if I can pass their test – because I don’t think they cut me any slack – it makes me really happy. Read More...

Iron Man 2- twitterIt feels like a Watcher's lifetime since the first pictures off the set of "Iron Man 2" emerged, but as Jon Favreau's tweets suggest, that May release date is fast approaching. Ever the diligent updater, he says he's just got a few sound mixes and visual effects left to finalize.

In other directorial news, Kevin Smith had been answering questions as usual over on his account, and he responded honestly when someone asked him how he felt about directing someone else's script for "Cop Out." Check out what he had to say below along with some micro-reviews of "The Big Bang Theory" from last night and "CSI" in general. And before I forget, big-time congratulations to Tony Moore, who tweeted the birth of his new daughter!

It's all in the Twitter Report for March 2, 2010. Read More...

The Green HornetA few movie-related cheers and jeers got tossed around the Twitter Report's feed over the last 24 hours. Joe Hill seems to have been catching up on his "Green Hornet" news, and both Michel Gondry and Anvil have his approval. Bryan Lee O'Malley, meanwhile, sounded a little skeptical of Ellen Page's role in the new Christopher Nolan film "Inception."

In sports/comics crossover conversation, Brian Michael Bendis noticed the trending Vikings topic last night that was spurred by the Chicago Bears victory over Minnesota. He hoped that "Viking" writer Ivan Brandon would notice as well. Check out all of those retweets after the jump along with a birthday wish I endorse going out to Jeff Katz and a memorial shout out to Star Trek actress Majel Barrett, which I also support.

I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is your comics Twitterverse roundup for December 29, 2009. Read More...

9So, you might have noticed some changes on Splash Page lately. For example, there's the ridiculously cool background image we're using for the site right now.

Well, don't fear, Ed Tadem fans, we'll be back to the old layout next week. This week, it's all about "9," Shane Acker's post-apocalyptic animated adventure that premieres in theaters this Wednesday, September 9 (appropriately enough)–which we'll be covering extensively here on Splash Page for the next five days. From producers Tim Burton ("Batman") and Timur Bekmambetov ("Wanted") to voice actors Elijah Wood ("Sin City") and Jennifer Connelly ("Hulk," "The Rocketeer"), the connections between "9" and the world of comics are hard to ignore.

So, keep it locked to Splash Page all this week as we bring you loads of exclusive interviews, footage, images and behind-the-scenes content from the amazing world of "9." And just in case you missed what all the fuss is about, we've included some of the cool clips we've debuted here already to get you ready for Acker's amazing animated ragdolls. Read More...

World War ZNext month's "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" movie premier may have some fans awaiting with cautious optimism given its deviations from its source material, but there's one development in Joe canon that should have "G.I.

IDW has announced that former "Saturday Night Live" scribe and author of zombie survival tome "World War Z" is writing an upcoming five-issue "G.I. Joe" miniseries due out next year. Read More...

Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada's creator-owned "Painkiller Jane" has seen two live-action incarnations -- once as a made-for-television movie, then again as a short-lived television series. The adaptations both premiered on the SyFy Channel to mixed reviews, begging the question: what will it take to successfully relaunch "Painkiller Jane"?

Palmiotti has the answer, as he exclusively revealed to MTV News that an all-new adaptation of the fast-healing vigilante is in the works. The creator said that not only is there a development deal that he's finalizing for a new "Painkiller Jane" film, but he himself will be directly involved in the latest live-action update.
