FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER TRAILER

The first trailer for Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer will be attached with Night at the Museum, which reaches theaters on Dec. 22.

Look for the trailer to be available that same day on Apple's web site.

In other Fantastic Four news:

* According to The Hollywood Reporter, producer Ralph Winter has extended his deal with studio into 2008. Winter produced all three X-Men films, both Fantastic Four movies and Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes.

No word yet if Winter will be involved with the Wolverine solo film.

* The first reveal of the Silver Sufer will happen before the trailer, probably in USA TODAY, where Fox has revealed several images before on Fantastic Four, X-Men and Daredevil.



ASTONISHING X-MEN'S "UNSTOPPABLE"

Marvel Comics on Friday released the cover, variant cover and a two-page spread from Astonishing X-Men #19, which begins "Unstoppable," the final art by Joss Whedon and John Cassaday.

Each issue of the "Unstoppable" arc will feature 50/50 covers by Cassaday, with one cover of each issue featuring an iconic shot of a different Astonishing team member. Astonishing X-Men #19's variant features a visorless Cyclops.

Here's how Marvel describes the issue:

"After the shocking events of 'Torn,' the X-Men, along with Ord and Danger, have been transported to Breakworld; the very world that Colossus is prophesized to destroy. Will everyone make it back to Earth? Even if they manage to return, nothing will ever be the same."

The issue is due in stores on Dec. 27. Click on the thumbnails above for larger images.

* Marvel Comics on Friday announced that C.B. Cebulski is writing two mini-series, Spider-Man Fairy Tales and Avengers Fairy Tales, for next year.

"We've got Spider-Man Fairy Tales coming up in May," said editor Molly Lazer. łThat's being written by C.B. Cebulski, who did X-Men Fairy Tales. We're doing a Little Red Riding Hood issue, which I don't think will be what people expect in regards to who's cast as what character and what we're trying to say using the Little Red Riding Hood story. Ric Tercio is going to be doing the artwork for that. It'll be his first Marvel work.

We'll be doing a story based on Japanese myths and ghost stories. We're doing a story based on the African tale of the trickster, Anansi, the spider. And we came up with a neat idea for a Cinderella story that also won't be what people are going to expect. It's exciting."

* Image Comics on Thursday announced that The Walking Dead #33 has sold out within 24 hours of release. A second printing is planned for early next month.

"Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard really pushed the envelope with this issue," said Eric Stephenson, Image's executive director. "It's terrifying, it's challenging, and what's so great about The Walking Dead is you never know what's going to happen next. From brutal action to desperate romance to powerful commentary on the human condition, anything can happen in The Walking Dead."

* After Hours Press has announced Matty Tow as the new artist of Impossible Tales #2, due this month.
