– Zoe Saldana is now confirmed to play Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy. It will be done entirely with makeup, and not CG or performance capture.
– Luke Evans has been cast as The Crow in the newest of adaptation James O’Barr’s comics. He’ll next be seen in Fast & Furious 6.
– Sony has commissioned Oren Uziel to pen Men in Black 4. Isn’t that R.I.P.D? He’ll also be writing the sequel to 21 Jump Street.
– AOL has announced that it will shut down Comics Alliance, a website that has long highlighted artists and given excellent opinion pieces. It will be very missed.
