Bryce Dallas Howard is in talks to play Peter Parker's love interest Gwen Stacy in Columbia Pictures' Spider-Man 3, the studio has confirmed for The Continuum.

Howard, 24, is the daughter of director/actor Ron Howard. Her breakthrough role was in The Village and her other upcoming films include Mary Queen of Scots, Lady in the Water and As You Like It.

In Spider-Man 3, Gwen will be part of a love triangle with Peter (Tobey Maguire) and Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst).

The film is expected to begin production this month, with Sam Raimi again directing. The cast also introduces Thomas Haden Church as Sandman and Topher Grace as a yet-to-be-announced villain.

Look for more on Spider-Man 3 soon here in The Continuum.

After several years' absence from creative duties, Image Comics co-founder Jim Valentino is taking the helm as writer and artist of the Image flagship title ShadowHawk.

The move begins in ShadowHawk #9 in February, kicking off the first of the 4-part storyline "Rise." Valentino pencils the issue, then raises the stakes in ShadowHawk #10 in March, where he takes over both writing and art duties.

"'Rise' felt like the perfect place to jump back into ShadowHawk," Valentino said. "The story shows a changing of the guard. A death in the family. A crisis of faith. Everything changes for Eddie Collins when he loses more than his helmet as a new ShadowHawk comes takes over the mantle.

"Eddie Collins is the current embodiment of ShadowHawk, one in a long line of heroes dating back 5,000 years. Throughout his time as ShadowHawk, Eddie has been a little too lax about his role. He's done a little too much listening to others about what they think he should do and, as a result, hasn't learned the full consequences that come with being a hero. "Rise" is going to change all of that. Reality is going to hit him right between the eyes and change everything in his world. In other words, he's going to grow up, and he's going to do it the hard way. When Eddie became ShadowHawk, he was still a boy. By the end of ŚRise,ą he will need to become a man."

"I'm really enjoying the opportunity to get back into the creative nitty-gritty. I've got a lot of affection for this character, and I've really enjoyed seeing what other creators have done with him, but when this story came up, I knew it was time for me to get back into the driver's seat and lead the character into a whole new era. So far it's been a blast!"
