MARVEL MOVIE ROUNDUP

David Hayter, who is writing and directing the Black Widow movie for Marvel and Lions Gate, told The Continuum there is progress on the film.

"I kust submitted the final draft of the script, and it has been received very postively," Hayter told The Continuum. "We are supposed to sit down and discuss casting this week."

Hayter has a long association with Marvel, having worked on X-Men and X2, and, more recently, Iron Man.

In other Marvel movie news:

* Jessica Biel, who played Abigail Whistler in Blade: Trinity, was named "The Sexiest Woman Alive" by Esquire magazine, which unveiled Biel's cover last week in New York City. Blade: Trinity debuts this month and runs into next month on Starz.

* The first trailer for X3 is a ways off yet. "Nothing is ready that I am aware of," producer Ralph Winter told The Continuum. "I have not seen anything yet."

* 20th Century Fox has revealed the box art for the VHS version of Fantastic Four, which like the DVD and UMD versions, will be released on Dec. 6. Click on the thumbnail for a larger image.

TOM WELLING IN THE FOG

Smallville's Tom Welling pulled double duty in order to star in The Fog, the remake of the 1980 John Carpenter horror film headed to theaters on Friday.

During a stretch when the production of the series and the film overlapped, Welling shot Smallville for five days during the week and then The Fog on weekends.

"One week we were shooting nights," said producer David Foster, "and Tom finished working for us early Monday morning, around 7 a.m., showered, got dressed and went to work on Smallville. That's rough."

The Fog is Welling's second movie role, following 2003's Cheaper by the Dozen. He will also be featured in the Cheaper by the Dozen sequel next year.

In The Fog, Welling plays Nick Castle, captain of the charter boat Sea Grass, who unknowingly hooks anchor on an old sea bag wedged on the ocean floor, spilling its contents and triggering a series of terrifying events that will have deadly consquences on the small island of Antonio Bay.

"The Fog is about accountability," Welling said. "Unfortunately, it's not accountability for what you did, but what your ancestors did."

The film also stars Hellboy's Selma Blair and Lost's Maggie Grace.

Grace and director Rupert Wainwright promoted the film last summer at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

"He's very charming," Grace said of Welling.

Look for more on The Fog this week here in The Continuum.

DWAYNE MCDUFFIE WRITES FANTASTIC FOUR

Dwayne McDuffie, producer of the Justice League Unlimited animated series, is writing his first story for Marvel Comics in more than a decade in December's Fantastic Four Special.

"I was thrilled when Tom Breevoort asked me to pich in on the Special and I jumped at the chance, I've always had a soft spot for the Fantastic Four," McDuffie told The Continuum. "It's my first script for Marvel Comics in 13 years but it's like meeting a friend you've been out of touch with for ages and miraculously picking up right where you left off without missing a beat."

Here's how Marvel describes the the story, titled "My Dinner with Doom:"

"It's a day of celebration and reflection in Latveria, but deep within the confines of the Latverian Embassy to America, Victor Von Doom and Reed Richards engage in a subtle battle of wits, with all of Manhattan as the playing field. What are the stakes? And can Mister Fantastic triumph when all of the moves have been made in advance?"

The art for the story is by Casey Jones. The book will also feature a Franklin Richards back-up and a cover by Leinil Francis Yu.
