    Marvel Demotes 'The Punisher' To TV With Fox Pilot Commitment

    When we last talked to Ray Stevenson, star of "Punisher: War Zone," he revealed that the rights to the character, adapted into financially unsuccessful movies by New World Pictures, Artisan and Lionsgate, had returned to Marvel. He suggested there were plans to utilize the brand again, and that he may be involved. We're not sure about that last part, but the character is set to appear again, this time on Fox television. Because what better place for a trigger-happy, murdering vigilante than the home of Animation Domination?

    Watch: There Will Be Blood In Trailer For 'Black Gold' Starring Antonio Banderas & Tahar Rahim

    With the Arab Spring slowly beginning a sea change over the non-democratic rule of the many of the oil rich nations in the Middle East, the timing for Jean-Jacques Annaud’s epic "Black Gold" is fortuitous. While the history of oil in the Middle East is definitely complex, Annaud will take viewers right back to the beginning to when the resource was first discovered burbling underneath the sand.

    Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah' Might Look Like This: New Pictures From The Graphic Novel Arrive

    Darren Aronofsky has been talking about "Noah," his planned big-budget version of the classical Biblical tale of the man chosen to carry on life after God wipes the slate clean, for years now, but for a long time it seemed like an far-off dream project; he'd never had a major box office hit, and no one seemed likely to put down a few $100 million for something not involving superheroes. But the success of "Black Swan," which made back twenty times its budget, has changed things, and the film now has a home thanks to Paramount and New Regency, and a shoot planned for next spring.

    Matthew Vaughn Eyes Adaptations Of Mark Millar's 'Superior' & 'The Secret Service'

    Even though "X-Men: First Class" was a big hit, earning over $350 million worldwide, Matthew Vaughn has kept a low profile since the summer with barely a peep out of the director. He's likely been recharging his batteries after a whirlwind production and press tour that saw him rushing to get the superhero movie locked in time, all while talking to basically everybody on the planet about the film. While there was much talk of a '70s or '80s set 'First Class' sequel in the run up to the film's release, that chatter has pretty much died off. While Fox has "The Wolverine" on deck for their next trip in to the 'X-Men' franchise, Vaughn is beginning to consider what he'll do next and he's looking to "Kick-Ass" creator Mark Millar once again, with two potential projects lining up as possibilities.
