Wii's "Super Paper Mario" gets in a few good digs at the nerdiest of gamers, but don't be too offended.

Entertainment Weekly reports that "Spider-Man" director Sam Raimi is interested in "The Hobbit," which could mean he'd be too busy to stick around for Spidey's fourth adventure — and when they told Kirsten Dunst the news, she all but quit, and explained that if she's out, you might as well forget about the film altogether.
