Top 5 Stories For The Week Ending 03/29/2013

Georges St-Pierre Playing ‘Batroc the Leaper’ In CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Batroc the Leaper has been a longtime foe for Captain America in the pages of Marvel Comics. He's an expert martial artist that has a fighting style that places an emphasis on well...leaping. C-listers like Crossbones (Frank Grillo) and Batroc must be working for someone else right? Robert Redford is playing a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. so that theoretically rules him out as the film's main baddie. With shooting expected to begin in a few weeks, we should be hearing news on this front in the coming days.

First Full-Length Trailer For THE WOLVERINE
Looks to be a new and exciting adventure for Logan (Hugh Jackman) in Japan as he deals with the events of X-Men: The Last Stand. Some of the scenes in the trailer were straight out of the comic from Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. Not entirely sold on that train fight although it was shown out of context in the trailer.

Kevin Feige On ‘Hall Of Armor’ Evolution In IRON MAN 3
By now, we've all seen the multitude of armors that will be at Tony Stark's (Robert Downey Jr.) disposal in Iron Man 3. Feige has some interesting tidbits to share about how we arrived at this point and what this development means moving forward.

RUMOR: [Lex Luthor] IS In MAN OF STEEL; Do We Know Who's Playing Him?
It should come as no surprise that a certain Superman foe will likely make an appearance of some kind in Man of Steel. This rumor grew legs off an earlier interview with David S. Goyer where the screenwriter gave a cryptic statement about assumptions. Now we may even have an actor to go along with the character.

DC TOONIVERSE: Bruce Timm Steps Down as Producer
We know now that Timm is stepping down but he's not stepping away permanently. Jim Tucker says all the right things about taking WB's direct-to-video adaptations in a new direction and introducing new characters besides Bats and Supes. I'm excited about the forthcoming announcements Tucker teased.
