Word from the set of The Incredible Hulk is that there is tension between Marvel Studios and Edward Norton, who was promised a measure of creative control for his participation in the project. See, Norton doesn't like the cut of the film the way that Marvel's doing it, and is sort of threatening to remove his support from the project unless they let him supervise the next cut.

Now, for a franchise that's already had to hit reset, due to the fact that it didn't work so well the first time, the withdrawal of support from the lead actor would spell disaster, and potentially put at risk over $100 million in cost, plus whatever goodwill and marketing the film has in the hopper. In other words, Norton has them over a barrel...and you wouldn't like him when he's angry.

In the meantime, you should watch the teaser trailer for the film, which is great.

Bryan Singer is working on developing a sequel to Superman Returns, which is something that was widely suspected, but has been confirmed by the man himself. Also, he plans to direct the sequel, and doesn't like the idea that the film was widely seen as a sort of failure, pointing out that it made $400 million.

The sequel will tentatively be titled Superman: Man of Steel, and is rumored to be bringing back Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor. Screenwriters, including those who penned J.J. Abrams' Star Trek, are rumored to be working on the project, but no names are yet confirmed.

Quick! Think of a NASCAR driver! Did you get Jeff Gordon? Yeah, we did, too, which is probably why he's going to be on the cover of NASCAR 09 for EA Sports. It just makes sense that the Rainbow Warrior would be the face man for the game that details the life and times of a NASCAR driver.

The game will ship on June 10th, and will be available on the PS3 and XBox 360, as well as the PS2. It will include a career mode, so that one day, it might be your mug on the cover of a game. Wait...that doesn't make sense. Why don't you just enjoy the game while we work out the logic behind the whole thing?

Here's a gallery of brand new screenshots!

If you haven't had the distinct pleasure of watching Attack of the Killer Tomatoes in your life, your day is about to get made. The fellas what are responsible for Ask A Ninja, Kent Nichols and Douglas Sarine, are writing a remake of the film, a cult classic from 1978, for a remake.

Oh, boy, oh boy! Get ready, kids. This is surely a classic in the making. We can hardly wait.

WiiWare is coming to Japan on March 25th, and, ostensibly, here in the not-too-distant future. For the uneducated, WiiWare is an online service for the Wii that, unlike Virtual Console, offers newer games designed specifically for the Wii, mostly of the third party variety.

Initial offerings, at least in Japan, include Okiraku Ping-Pong Wii, a ping-pong game, and My Life As A King: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, from the good folks at Square Enix. We look forward to an American release date, and to finding out what other interesting games appear on the service.

Hulu Launches Wednesday

Hulu is going live on Wednesday and TheFeed is very excited. We've been poking around in their Beta for a few months now, just watching Family Guy and Heroes episodes, as well as a ton of cheesy gameshows. There's lots of content from NBC, FOX, and other providers like your own G4 with more on the way. There's coverage from the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show for cryin out loud.

A supposed drawback is that you can't download anything, but those who know how to use bit torrents for private transfer of non-copyrighted material don't need this feature anyway.

Also, if you haven't seen the live action Tick shows, they're up there. Check them out tomorrow.

Christopher Nolan is doing some interesting work on the character of Two-Face in the upcoming Dark Knight  film. The character is being shot twice, with actor Aaron Eckhart both in and out of make-up, and playing the character differently, so that you have a good idea that Harvey Dent is, in fact, a psychopath with a dual personality.

The good news is that this will likely make it a much more realistic experience than the last time we saw Two-Face onscreen. However, it's an editing and technical nightmare, and it might end up costing a whole lot of money. Still, this project gets better and better all the time.

Mila Kunis, who you will no doubt remember as the hot little number who once was one of the stars of That 70's Show, will star opposite Mark Wahlberg in Max Payne, the movie based on the Rockstar videogame. In the film, Kunis will play an assassin who teams with Max to help avenge the death of her sister.

To be honest, we don't care what role she's in, as long as we get to see Ms. Kunis onscreen, though the fact that she will be playing an assassin greatly improves the chances that at least some of the onscreen action will take place while she's dressed in rubber or leather, and we're just fine with that, thank you.

We can hardly think of two words that belong together less than "babysitting" and "mania," and yet, Babysitting Mania is coming for the Nintendo DS in the Fall of this year. According to the press release, In Babysitting Mania, players progress through more than 100 levels of fast-paced, overlapping challenges as they feed, entertain and clean up after rambunctious kids in 20 chaotic houses."

Though our collective babysitting experience dictates that even echoing that experience by feeding, entertaining, and cleaning up after 20 houses worth of rambunctious kids is a little like Hell on Earth, there will surely be people out there who are going to lap this game up as if they were kittens and it were milk.

Though it wasn't the most well-reviewed movie of the year, 10,000 B.C. really cleaned up at the box office over the weekend, pulling an impressive $35 million. The film, made by Roland Emmerich, of Independence Day and Godzilla fame, did well primarily because it opened against...well, the nearest competitor was College Road Trip, the newest Martin Lawrence vehicle, which made $14 million.

Other than that, though, there wasn't much going on at the movies over the weekend, which is why 10,000 B.C. did so well. Or was it halfway decent? Why don't you tell us, and then we'll figure out whether or not we want to take Grampa TheFeed to go see it. He loves prehistoric movies.
