A little disappointed that the Idlewild North American tour dates still have no Toronto show listed, and there don’t seem to be many/any free days on the calender when they’re in the northeast. Are they giving Hogtown the ol’ smell you later? They’re not even opening for Pearl Jam on their Toronto date this summer. Phooo.
But The Remote Part is finally getting a North American release on March 25. That’s something.
Brett Ratner has apparently left the nascent Superman film. There are rumblings that Michael Bay’s name is being tossed around as a replacement. Wow – Superman from the guy who gave us Pearl Harbour? That’s almost as good as being repeatedly kicked in the groin.
Slightly more encouraging is Christopher Nolan being attached to a new Batman film. Which is interesting, since Darren Aranofsky is still helming Batman: Year One although there’s been no news on that project in a dog’s age. And those rumblings about Halle Berry replacing Ashley Judd in Catwoman are… well, I’m sure either one would look good in the suit…
