Hugh Jackman talks Wolverine's lovers (plural!) and there's a scorching new Gamer clip. ScarJo talks Iron Man 2, and Chris Pine talks Trek 2. Plus some awesome Dollhouse and Doctor Who hints. Also: Stargate, Heroes, Warehouse and True Blood spoilers!
Another snippet of Hugh Jackman, apparently from the same interview as yesterday's report. This time around, Jackman says Logan's second solo outing won't be his darkest, because he gets pretty dark in other movies.
I'm going to go out on a limb right now and say it will be the sexiest, though. Because if you read that [comics storyline], there's female companionship. Not just one — for Wolverine. There's quite a bit going on. My wife might have an issue with it, but I think the fans will be happy with it.
I found a pretty decent set of speculation about the Japan story arc, from back in May, including the idea that the amnesiac Wolverine takes part in cage fights, run by Mariko's father Shingen. And maybe Shingen pays Silver Samurai, his illegitimate son, to beat Wolverine in the arena. The wounded Wolverine gets rescued by Shingen's right-hand ninja, Yukio, who has a thing for him — but she knows Wolverine and Mariko are really in love, so she brings the two of them together. Unfortunately, Mariko gets poisoned, and Logan grants her a quick death, just like in the comics. Then Shingen, believing Wolverine killed Mariko, sends both Silver Samurai and his cousin, Sunfire, to kill him. The whole thing is here, and it's way more detailed. [Geek Corner]
Iron Man 2:
Scarlett Johansson describes her character, Black Widow:
I think the character is a shape-shifter so it was kind of like playing two different characters. One character is more mysterious and — I don't want to say submissive but she's kind of blending in with the crowd, I suppose you could say. The other part of this character is someone who knows their shit and is able to say, "I'm going to fight this head on."
Tiniest scoop ever. Chris Pine says he thinks the movie is coming out in 2011, and he believes the whole cast will be back. (But no clue whether that includes Greenwood and Nimoy.) [L.A. Times]

Eliza Dushku tweeted yesterday about second-season filming:

Wonder what she was getting dressed as... and what this "new feature" is. [Twitter]
A page from the 2010 Doctor Who Storybook found its way onto a discussion forum. It appears to be the Tenth Doctor's garbled transmissions about his whole tenure as the Doctor, with quotes from past and future episodes. It includes an upcoming storyline (probably from the Sarah Jane Adventures) where something called the Pantheon Of Dischord is targeting Sarah Jane Smith. Another quote is "Scanning, but it must..." And then there's "...E water! Get away from the wat...", which obviously comes from "The Waters Of Mars." And then, probably from David Tennant's final two parter, there's "Can't be alive! No! The Gate!" (And I'm guessing it's either the Master, or Timothy Dalton's Time Lord, who "can't be alive.) And then there's "One last look... Got to see..." which could refer to the dying Doctor's trip to see Rose Tyler before she'd even met him. And finally, the plaintive "Don't forget me." (Which people are speculating may be Tennant's final words as the Doctor. As if we could ever forget him.) [GallifreyBase, thanks Troy!]

Lou Diamond Phillips says his character, Col. Telford, is kind of a jerk who needs to do things by the book. And he explains how he gets involved in the action:
I'm supposed to go through the Stargate into this unknown address. The base is attacked, and a lot of people who should not be in charge are stranded on this ship out in the middle of nowhere called the Destiny. I get stuck on Earth, and it's my mission to try to get to these people ... back, but I have no way to physically get on the ship. ... [So I] keep using these telecommunications stones, exchanging bodies with people and trying to take over and ... get them home.
The body-exchanging technology, discovered in the two-part episode "Arena," leads to what Phillips believes will be the most talked-about love scene of the fall. [Sci Fi Wire]
