X-Men: The Last Stand features -- and much more!!!


The Continuum today continues its series on the actors of X-Men: The Last Stand with a question-and-answer session with Kelsey Grammer, who plays Beast.

In other X-Men: The Last Stand News:

* Fox Movie Channel is featuring X-Men interstitials, including a behind-the-scenes featurette and an interview with producer Ralph Winter.

"We were able to deliver more action and more spectacle," said Winter, who has produced all three X-films.

Winter also talked about the logistics of the film's scope and special effects, the challenge of sequels and the impact of the DVD market.

* Appearing on NBC's The Today Show, Halle Berry continued to send mixed messages about her future as Storm.

Asked if she wanted to do more X-Men films she said, "You know, I would love to, especially with this new incarnation of Storm. The story is so rich."

* Famke Janssen (Jean Grey), on NBC's Tonight Show, said she was surprised at how commercial the Cannes Film Festival was. "Everywhere you go are humongous billboards," she said. "We were staying at the Carlton hotel and the entire front of the building was the billboard for X-Men."

* Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), on NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien on Wednesday: "The movie is bigger -- and I think better. It's huge. It's very intense." Jackman showed a clip of Wolverine fighting Magneto's mutants and Spike, which he set up as "me kicking ass."

* Anna Paquin (Rogue) appeared on NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly and said she's sensed a buzz about the film in her promotional travels. "Everybody seems really excited," she said. "It's really crazy."

Paquin noted she did a signing at a comics store in Washington D.C. with Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) and Aaron Stanford (Pyro). She said a lot of people come up to her and say, "If I touch you, am I going to die?"

* Jackman and Berry appeared on MTV's TRL on Thursday, where an X-Men Harley Davidson motorcyle was given away. Berry noted that the Cannes Film Festival was the first time the entire cast was together. "I never saw Rebecca (Romijn) during filming," Berry said.

Jackman also said that he provided the voice for Wolverine in the new Activision video game. "It was great fun," he said.

She might be the girl next door in those Lincoln Mercury commercials, but Jill Wagner shows she can be tough as Krista Starr in the upcoming Blade: The Series on Spike TV.

"You'll totally believe her shooting guns and riding Harleys," Spike TV's Pancho Mansfield said.

In the series, Wagner plays a military veteran drained by combat traumas who learns that her fraternal twin brother Zack has been killed under mysterious circumstances. Unable to get any resolution from the police, she decides to tenaciously investigate her brother's death herself, which leads her into the world of vampires.

"Krista is an army chick, so she knows how to handle a gun and she knows how to fight," Wagner said. "She's a sniper, she knows how to shoot. She knows all that."

Blade: The Series debuts with a two-hour movie on June 28. Click on the thumbnails for larger images and look for more on the show soon here in The Contnuum.

Recently named Iron Man director Jon Favreau is promoting The Break-Up -- in which he appears with Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston -- but on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday he also talked about Iron Man.

Favreau said he didn't know who would be playing Iron Man. "Because we're working on the script," he said.

Asked if he would bring his trademark humor to the film, Favreau said, "There's always some humor in the things I like to do, but it's going to be pretty much a straight-ahead super-hero film. Tony Stark, who is Iron Man, is a bit of a womanizing playboy, so there should a little room to color outside the lines a little bit."

Favreau brought along a first "preliminary artwork" for the film -- a drawing by his 4-year-old son.

In other Marvel movie notes:

* Kirsten Dunst, who is returning as Mary Jane in Spider-Man 3, showed up at the Cannes Film Festival with very long, red hair, perhaps giving an indication of what she will look like in the new Spidey film. (Click on the thumbnail above for a larger image).

It appears that Dunst isn't wearing a wig, as she did in the first two films.

At Cannes, Dunst was promoting her upcoming film, Marie Antoinette, which is also being released by Sony.

* Look for Sony to have a presence at Comic-Con International in San Diego, promoting Spider-Man 3 and Ghost Rider.


Warner Home Video has announced Sept. 26 release dates for Teen Titans: The Complete Second Season and The Batman: The Complete Second season.

Both releases will be two-disc collections.

Here's how the Teen Titans collection is described by Warner Home Video:

"Dangerous enemy or lifelong friend? That's the question of Season 2 when Terra, a free-spirited teen with awesome earth-manipulating powers, rolls into town. As a skilled fighter, she makes a powerful addition to the Titans' fight against crime, and as a fun-loving, no-holds-barred hero, she jives instantly with their team chemistry. But the Titans aren't the only ones interested in recruiting the new girl. Robin's archnemesis Slade is on the prowl for an apprentice, and the combination of Terra's volatile powers and personal vulnerability make her a perfect target for his twisted plans. Trusting this newcomer could prove to be a fatal mistake for the Teen Titans!"

Episodes include "How Long Is Forever," "Every Dog Has His Day," "Terra," "Only Human," "Fear Itself," "Date With Destiny," "Transformation," "Titan Rising," "Winner Take All," "Betrayal," "Fractured," "Aftershock, Part I" and "Aftershock, Part II."

Here's how the Batman collection is described by Warner Home Video:

"Riddle me this: who's the latest villain to set his sinister sights on Gotham City? Riddler, of course, and only The Batman has the answers to stop this enigmatic evildoer. In these 13 action-packed episodes from the hit TV series, Gotham's greatest protector stumps Riddler and other favorite villains like Joker, Mr. Freeze and Penguin, and his obsession with justice earns the trust of up-and-coming police detective Jim Gordon. When Gordon offers The Batman a tentative alliance -- 'Just help me make this city safe for my daughter' -- another piece of the legend falls into place!"

Episodes include "The Cat, the Bat, and the Ugly," "Riddled," "JTV," "Swamped," "Pets," "Meltdown," "The Butler Did It," "Fire and Ice," "Ragdolls to Riches," "Strange Minds," "Solomon Grundy," "The Laughing Bat" and "Night and the City."
