While the second installment of the Iron Man series is in post production, word out of H’wood is that Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau are set to team again in another movie.Â This isn’t news about a third Iron Man (although I wouldn’t write that one off), but rather Platinum Studios Cowboys and Aliens movie adaptation.Â Downey has been signed to star in the movie for a while, but now with Favreau on board as director, expect this movie to start moving through the Hollywood Machine pretty quickly. The sci-fi Western explores what would happen if the traditional Old
Here’s a roundup of more IDW news announced at the San Diego Comic Con this afternoon. Bat Boy is Back! One of the strangest bits of stuff I was exposed to when working late-night radio was reading a copy of The Weekly World News that featured Bat Boy on the cover. Over the years, the Bat Boy mythos grew until the fictional character took on a life of its own.Â Bat Boy has been pretty quiet these last couple of years, but IDW Publishing is resurrecting the character in comic book form. The series will be written by IDWâ€™s Publisher/Editor-in-Chief

Even before the second installment of the Transformers franchise hits the silver screen, Paramount has announced the third Transformers movie has a release date.Â Surprisingly, no other studio has scheduled a major film for the 2011 Independence Day holiday, meaning we can expect to see Tranformers 3 hit mid-week on July 1, 2011.
