Batman to die, Cruise Reacher's towards Franchise City and pretty much every other hot movie rumour

Gwen Stacy to die in Spider-man reboot - at least that's what the current rumors would have us believe. It seems this news is popping up everywhere and is even mentioned in the current Sci-Fi Now magazine.

Iron Man 3 goes into production this month - Lethal Weapon 3 scribe, Shane Black is on scripting duties and it seems he is looking towards the Extremis storyline which was written by Warren Ellis. Ben Kingsley is slated to play the bad guy.

The Woman in Black is to get a 2 - the follow up entitled, The Woman in Black: Angels of Death is to be set 40 years after the events of the first movie.

The Reverend - the UK horror movie from Neil (Risen) Jones is soon to be given a DVD release. I recently chatted with the director and he revealed some interesting future projects, none of which can be revealed at the moment but rest assured The Archive will be right on the button when it comes to announcements.

The Hulk - reboot movie is to be fast tracked into production and will be released to coincide with The Avengers 2. And speaking of Avengers 2 it is rumored that Nick Cage will appear as Ghost Rider - groan.

One Shot title change - the movie starring Tom Cruise is now titled,  Reacher. The studio are hoping for a franchise out of this first movie adapted from Lee Child's successful thriller series.

Batman to die - Batman Rises is hotly tipped to end with the death of Batman in order to finish off Christopher Nolan's excellent trilogy. "What drew me to Batman in the first place was Bruce Wayne's story, and that he's a real character whose story begins in childhood. He's not a fully formed character like James Bond, so what we're doing is following the journey of this guy from a child who goes through this horrible experience of becoming this extraordinary character. That, for me, became a three-part story. And obviously the third part becomes the ending of the guy's story." Christopher Nolan talking to Empire Magazine

According to New York Times 'That legend of a tough, cerebal drifter, a latter day 6 foot 5 inch cowboy'...that is Jack Reacher.
And I am expected to accept Tom Cruise as Reacher....no way. I'll stick to the books, thanks.
