The Friday Back Issue Bin: Sept. 29 – Oct. 3, 2008

Sweet Christmas, what a week of awesome comic book news! It was difficult for even your friendly neighborhood Splash Page Crew to keep up, so in case you missed something, here’s a recap of the week’s biggest stories…

– With the “Iron Man” DVD dropping earlier this week, we spoke to co-screenwriters Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby about their favorite scene that didn’t make the final cut.

– Fergus and Ostby also teased about a possible Iron Man/Captain America connection that could provide fodder for the next installment.

– Kirsten Dunst: is she in or out on “Spider-Man 4?” Either way, Simon Pegg would be happy to get involved.

– Will Kenneth Branagh be the director of the “Thor” feature film? He’s got J. Michael Straczynski’s blessing, and Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada, too!

– Jeffrey Dean Morgan talked about getting into the mind of The Comedian for “Watchmen.”

– Mark Ruffalo told us how he almost landed the role of Two-Face in “The Dark Knight”!

– You had questions for “Watchmen” director Zack Snyder? Splash Page got the answers!

– “Die Hard” screenwriter Steven de Souza gave us an exclusive preview of the upcoming “Sheena, Queen of the Jungle” miniseries he’s writing, and told us which actress should put on a leopard-skin bikini for a live-action “Sheena” movie.
