Director Jon Favreau continues to adeptly stir the buzz pot, building momentum for Iron Man's release on May 2.

Following a show-stealing appearance last summer at Comic-Con International in San Diego, Favreau appeared at the recent WonderCon, staging a panel and showing both the new trailer and a clip from the movie.

After the panel, he sat down backstage with members of the press.

Dave Bullock, director of the recently released Justice League: The New Frontier, told The Continuum he has directed four episodes of Kids' WB!'s The Spectacular Spider-Man.

"The first one I directed was the Lizard episode," Bullock said. "I specifically asked for that, knowing it would absolutely be a much moodier, darker type story. Curt Connors is such a great character, so I pushed for that."

The episode, "Natural Selection," will be the series' third.

Bullock directed one episode in each of the first season's four arcs.

30 Days of Night co-creator Steve Niles and Iron Man: Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. writer Dan Knauf are among the writers contributing to NBC's Fear Itself.

The suspense/horror anthology series from Lionsgate, in association with Industry Entertainment, has been given a 13-episode order.

Niles is writing "New Year's Day" from a story by Paul Kane. In the episode, directed by Saw II-IV's Darren Bousman, a young woman wakes up in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by horrifying zombies.

Knauf is writing "Family Man, to be directed by Ronny Yu. In an action-charged, psychological thriller, a likeable family man switches bodies with a serial killer after a near-death experience. He must fight from behind bars to keep the murderer from adding his family to the long list of victims.

Superman Returns' Brandon Routh will star in "Community." He joins Shiri Appleby as a young married couple who find the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood. But as the dark underbelly of their neighborhood creeps to the surface, they soon realize that their neighbors will go to any extreme -- even murder -- to make sure that they comply with their twisted sense of conformity.

The image show to the right is from "Eater" and the first episodes, starring Stephen R. Hart and Elisabeth Moss.

Image Comics on Monday released imagery from Pretty, Baby, Machine, a three-issue mini-series that launches on May 8 from Shadowline.

By Kody Chamberlain and Clark Westerman, the mini-series features Pretty Boy Floyd, Baby Face Nelson and Machine Gun Kelly taking on the most powerful mobster of the 20th century, Al Capone.

"Pretty, Baby, Machine came out of a love for the classic noir films of the 1950s and the startlingly true history of America's mobsters," Westerman said. "However, it wasn't until I saw Kody's art that the idea really gelled. Seeing the range of his styles blew me away and soon after, we got to work on Pretty, Baby, Machine."

Shadowline President Jim Valentino said, "Kody is one of the most versitile young artists around and a future super-star. Here he applies the most realistic chiaroscuro/film noir style this side of Michael Lark."

Each issue will be 32 black-and-white pages and will cost $3.50.
