Most important news (to me) is the JGL to Batman/Rises news. I know it was bantered about for a while, but he'd be great if he were cast. I'd heard a pre-Robin Robin, and I'd be alright with that.

Lots of sick trailers last night during the Super Bowl, with Cowboys & Aliens, Thor, Captain America and Transformers.

Fantastic. I love Eva Green.
10) Some new Spiderman photos have surfaced from the set.
Not a fan of the new suit at all.
13) Once again, rumors have it that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks to join The Dark Knight Rises.
Really hope they follow through with this.
02) NBC will air the premiere of the fifth and final season of Friday Night Lights on April 15. Texas forever.
So bummed this show's coming to an end. One of my all time favorites.
04) The Great Cornholio will wreak havoc again... MTV reports that Beavis and Butthead will be returning with new episodes this summer.
Best news. So incredibly pumped for it.

Big Stephen King news week. Seeing as both original films/tv films were pretty good, no need to remake Pet Sematary or The Stand (which seems too long of a book to become a movie in theaters).

And I love zombies, but will I actually watch the CW? Hmmm...

Glad to see Eva Green again, I dislike the Spiderman suit, I want JGL in the Dark Knight Rises, and i'm shocked Johnny Deep is in a Tim Burton film.

I feel better now and will add stuff this week though. And next week's will include those superbowl movie trailers too.
Captain America is going to be sick.

I think it would be great if Levitt was in the ...The Dark Knight Rises. You have to remember how many characters they had in The Dark Knight. 3 hour movies leave room for secondary characters.

Plus Robin Williams is rumoured to be playing Dr. Hugo Strange accoriding to imdb. Levitt would be cool, but I still wish he would have been able to be the Riddler. Or Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
