Diesel Donning Tights: "After X-men hit at the box office the studios starting buying up ever comic property they could get their hands on." If you take this quote from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and replace "X-men" with "Spiderman" then Kevin Smith's words begin to look a little prophetic.
Last weekend Spiderman shattered all previous records for a film's opening grosses and is poised to hit the $200 million mark by this Sunday. In that particular behemoths wake every major movie studio is fighting for a piece of the superhero gravy train.
The latest of the "super" projects rumored to be in the making will apparently star Mr. Vin Diesel and reunite him with the director and producer of last years wildly popular The Fast and The Furious.
It seems that fast cars just weren't good enough this go around. Diesel will be donning the tights of the fastest man on this, or any other planet. That's right folks get ready for The Flash. Maybe its just me but I just don't buy Diesel as the flash.
X-Men 2: Just a little not on this one. Apparently the two screenwriters have headed to beautiful Canada to tighten up the script before the summer scheduled shoot. Along the way they dropped a hint that Magneto somehow escapes the plastic house they built for him and teams up with the good guys. Why would he do that? well if rumors hold true then they will be fighting the infamous William Stryker, a "a televangelist and former soldier, launches a violent crusade against mutantkind"
