As previously leaked, David Hayter will write and direct Black Widow and an actress has been chosen but no announcements are ready.

Blade: Trinity’s screen testings went "incredibly well" and New Line will market the film aggressively.

Elektra starts production today and will be PG-13.

Fantastic Four starts filming in August as a "funny family action film" rated PG-13. Activision plans a game and there’ll be five toy lines.

Iron Man will be PG-13 as well and spawn the inevitable toys and video game.

Ben Ramsey will script and John Singleton will direct Luke Cage. Actors are lined up but no details were given.
