Ghost Rider movie news -- and much more!!!


Thursday's world broadcast premiere of Spider-Man 2 on Fox included several behind-the-scenes views of Spider-Man 3, including the shot of Venom first shown at Comic-Con International and recently leaked on the Internet.

Fox expanded its primetime programming to 2-1/2 hours for Spider-Man 2, which was shown in an edited format.

Following commercial breaks, short segments were shown, including some new footage and comments from cast members.

A Venom image was noticably absent from the trailer that debuted on Thursday, Nov. 9. That following weekend, another trailer, which included a Venom ending and many in-the-works effects, leaked out on the Internet, sending Sony scurrying for its removal.

But the Venom scene was shown immediately on Thursday night in a teaser at the beginning of Fox's broadcast of Spider-Man 2.

Also shown was Willem Dafoe, who apparently is returning as Norman Osborn.

Rambo creator David Morrell's project with Marvel Comics will be Captain America: The End, The Continuum has learned.

Marvel had announced in October 2005 that Morrell would be working on a Captain America project.

"I want the characters to feel real," Morrell said at that time. "In particular I want the reader to believe in Captain America. Also, I want to explore the major theme of what it means to be a hero in this troubled modern world. I hope the story is deeply moving as well as exciting."

On his website, Morrell posted: "I finished the scripts, and the artist is hard at work. The neo-realistic drawings look wonderful. The first issue will probably appear in May."

Captain America: The End -- and its artist -- could be announced by Marvel as early as next week. It will likely be a six-issue mini-series.

Dynamic Forces and Image Comics announced on Wednesday that Hellshock: The Definitive Edition trade paperback, featuring the completion of Jae Lee's Hellshock series, is coming off the press and scheduled to be in stores for the holidays.

Scheduled for release next month, Hellshock: The Definitive Edition has needed more time than anticipated for re-coloring and re-mastering, and will include the never-before-published 22-page finale, as well as a bonus alternate beginning and other extras.

Originally planned to be published as two mini-series by Image Comics, the second series (1997) never reached completion. The Hellshock: The Definitive Edition will fulfill the Hellshock storyline with the new ending.

"The creative process is not an easy one, and with Hellshock being a very personal work, I really wanted to make sure this came out as perfect as it could," Lee said. "That took a little longer than any of us would have liked, but I feel, looking at the finished book, that the wait was worth it and I thank everyone for their patience in helping me complete this creative journey."
