Batman, Lovecraft, and sequels, oh my!

Batman's 'Dark Knight Rises' is still awaiting a Bat foe. Guillermo del Toro's adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's, 'At the Mountain of Madness' is in slow gear. But many sequels are in the works, including Benji, Madagascar, and How to Train Your Dragon.

Producers of The Dark Knight Rises are still looking for a foe to match Heath Ledger's performance as The Joker.

We received some news this week about upcoming blockbusters, but mostly we are still awaiting casting and plot developments.

Case in point, the upcoming Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises.” We still don’t know much but this week a couple of big rumors were debunked.

Heath Ledger’s Joker (the rumor was to use unused footage from the last film) and Aaron Eckhart’s Two Face are not going to be in the "threequel." So there’s still lots of speculation about the next Bat foe. Will it be the Riddler? Catwoman? Clayface? Hugo Strange? Stay tuned. The movie comes out July 20, 2012.

Guillermo del Toro's 3D adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’sAt the Mountains of Madness is still on with del Toro "rewriting and rewriting" - but no news of any casting as yet, other than a part for del Toro favorite, Ron ‘Hellboy’ Perlman. At least with James Cameron producing we know it will reach theaters eventually. Rumor is that filming, should start in June 2011.
