Marvel Studios has received a $5 million advance payment from Sony Pictures to proceed with Spider-Man 4, Marvel confirmed during its second-quarter conference call on Tuesday morning.

Sony reportedly is eyeing a May 2011 release for the film, which could conflict with Marvel's plan for a May 6, 2011 release for The First Avenger: Captain America.

Marvel Studios chairman David Maisel said that he wouldn't respond to the "hypothetical" conflict, but noted that Marvel does have control with release dates of its own films and "has a lot of options."

Maisel said Marvel is hard at work on its four announced films -- Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America and the Avengers -- and he is pleased with the progress, but he was not ready to announce any creative or talent decisions.

Iron Man 2 is the only upcoming Marvel film with a distributor with Paramount Pictures.

Iron Man has brought in $571 million worldwide, ranking it 22nd all time. The Incredible Hulk has brought in $246 million worldwide.

Marvel's film, television and animation slate remained unchanged from the first quarter of the year.

The Dark Knight crossed the $400-million mark on Monday with $6.3 million to push its total to $400.1 million.

The Batman sequel crossed the mark in 18 days, faster than any other film. Shrek 2 needed 43 days to eclipse $400 million.

The film is projected to top $500 million, but probably not pass Titanic's $600.8 million.

In other Dark Knight news, Donna Lee, publicist for Morgan Freeman, who plays Lucius Fox, released an update on Freeman's condition after his automobile accident in Mississippi on Sunday night:

"Morgan is doing well after surgery last night to reconnect nerves and to repair damage to his left arm and hand at the Elvis Presley Memorial Trauma Center at The MED, at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis. The surgery lasted approximately 4 and a half hours including recovery and he is in good spirits and was visiting with family members this morning. He was walking this a.m., and is looking forward to his release as soon as possible."

Bluewater Productions has announced that Waterbury will be launching its line of manga comic books in November.

Here's how Bluewater describes the book:

"Living in the town of Waterbury in an aging inn wasnıt Audreyıs dream. It was her husband's. But now her husband is dead, and Audrey is the only one who thinks it wasnıt an accident. She's also the only one who thinks the scarecrows scattered throughout the town have been moving. Whatıs really going on in Waterbury? Audrey's about to find out."

Legend of Isis and 10th Muse will debut in early 2009, both with new and updated looks in the traditional manga style.

Other new manga titles will be Dead End Boys (written by Ryan Burton) and Queen of Hearts based on the characters from Alice in Wonderland.

Bryan Golden is spearheading the redesigns of the characters. The specific art teams will be announced in a couple months.

"I have been a fan of action adventure manga for a long time," said Darren G. Davis, Bluewater's publisher. "Battle Angel Alita is one of my personal favorites, so we decided to launch a new and exciting line of titles though this manga line."

After the 4 issues of each comic book comes out in color, Bluewater will be releasing a trade paperback verison in black and white.
