The likely cast of next year's rebooted Fantastic Four movie from 20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank was revealed to the world last night, causing the comics internet to crack in half this morning. (It cracks in half all the time, of course. I think it may actually come in two parts.)

Confused? You will be.Variety reported yesterday t
"Find your balls!" bellowed Rob Liefeld last year from the top of Mount Twitter. The comics creator behind such enduring hits as X-Force and Cable was painfully bothered by 20th Century Fox, the studio that controls the movie rights to Marvel's X-Men characters, for not moving forward with a new film based on Deadpool, another character he created (with Fabian Nicieza) for the House of Ideas.

Darren Aronofsky has bailed on The Wolverine. The director regrets that he won't finish the X-Man film he's been working on with star Hugh Jackman and writer Christopher McQuarrie, but production circumstances are such that Aronofsky would be away from the United States longer than he would like.
