Today's spoilers include an out-of-left-field revelation about the Magneto solo film. Yes, they're actually working on that X-Men prequel, focusing on the magnetism-wielding mutant separatist leader. And there are a ton of new Lost revelations, plus two clips and a ton of photos. We've also gleaned also some surprising revelations (and a new clip) from Smallville. And finally, we've dug up four new pictures from Saturday's Spectacular Spider-Man, including a first look at the Black Cat, voiced by Tricia Helfer. Spoiler alert!
In addition to the Wolverine prequel to the X-Men movies now filming, there's also a Magneto prequel in the pipeline. And apparently it will feature a young version of the Beast aka Hank McCoy, the blue-furred, leaping mutant with the thesaurus-boosted vocabulary. No word on who will step into Kelsey Grammer's blue makeup for the film. The special effects house doing Hellboy II and Land Of The Lost had a test photo of the young Beast, and confirmed it was from Magneto. [Latino Review]
Remember those Smallville casting sides we mentioned the other day? About two new characters, Davis Bloome and Tess? Well, it turns out Davis Bloome, the charming bartender, is actually Doomsday, the alien destructo-monster who killed Superman in the comics. Why is Doomsday working in a bar? It's Smallville: Everybody's just a little bit less awesome than in the comics.
