Star Trek 2, G.I. Joe 2, Mission Impossible 4 Change Release Dates

Paramount Pictures has shaken up its release schedule with significant changes to the 2012 movie year.

First, and foremost, the still-untitled Star Trek sequel, which had initially committed to an August 10, 2012 release, will have to bow to the logistics of time, abandoning its boldy-declared date. However, taking its place on that date, will be the Jon Chu-directed G.I. Joe sequel, which has recently changed its name (again,) this time to G.I. Joe: Retaliation. There, the Joe team will have a four day head-start over their primary rival, Marvel's (well, Sony's) wall-crawling reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man.

On another front, it seems that the movie studio did not think that Agent Ethan Hunt could contend with Sherlock Holmes, as Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol, the fourth entry in the franchise, has been taken off a would-be box-office showdown with Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. The film otherwise known as M:I:IV will now be pushed five days to December 21, on which it takes on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

So, where does that leave the Star Trek sequel?

Lazy Flash

When even freaking Green Lantern's getting a souped-up big screen update in this age of comic book movies, it seems that getting passed over has drained The Flash of his enthusiasm.

Superman: Man Of Steel Confirmed As Reboot By Zack Snyder

Superman: Man of Steel, the Zack Snyder-directed reboot with Henry Cavill getting caped and costumed, has had its release date delayed. Initially set for release in December 2012, Warner Bros. has officially moved its premiere to June 14, 2013.

In the hugely-crowded field of blockbuster films in the 2012 movie year, Man of Steel would have had a lot to overcome. Even with its initial release timed well-past a summer movie season that may go down as the most comic-book-property-filled of all-time, there was one box-office contender against which it could not stand: The Hobbit!

Yes, it's rather clear that Warner realized the December 14, 2012 arrival of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey would do worse damage to Man of Steel than a rocket launcher loaded with kryptonite. However, a move to June of 2013 should find the film among far less threatening competition, giving it a chance.

How are you feeling about this film, so far?

Comic-Con 2011: Captain America In His Avengers Suit

Marvel has released a new character poster exclusive to Comic-Con, displaying Chris Evans as Captain America in the updated costume he'll be sporting for 2012's The Avengers.

Taken from the World War II era into the present, Cap is seen confidently ready for battle as a leader, pointing towards whatever it is the newly-assembled Super Team is out to stop. The more militaristic, paratrooper look he sports in this week's release of Captain America: The First Avenger is tweaked in favor of a more traditional comic book design, complete with patriotic red stripes on the abdomen. The old costume is displayed in the background to contrast the differences.

Check out the full image below and bask in its star-spangled glory.
