In other Marvel movie news:

* A Spider-Man 3 poster featuring Topher Grace as Venom that has been circulating the internet is a fake.

* The Hollywood Reporter listed several creators involved with Marvel's in-house productions. They include Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright as director and co-writer with Joe Comish on Ant-Man; David Self as writer of Captain America; Andrew Marlow as writer of Nick Fury; Mark Protosevich as writer of Thor; and Zak Penn as writer of Hulk 2, which reportedly will feature The Abomination as villain.

All of the above are slated to be distributed by Paramount Pictures, except for Hulk 2, which will be distributed by Universal.



SMALLVILLE UPDATE

The WB has released five images from "Oracle," the Thursday, May 4 episode of Smallville.
