The Crow: Recently we heard that Tom Hiddleston, villain in The Avengers, was in early talks to star in the reboot of 1994's The Crow, but now he's out and another villain is in. If negotiations are successful, production will be pushed to early 2014 to accommodate the busy schedule of Luke Evans; he's the villain in Fast & Furious 6, out on May 24, and is also set to star in Dracula Year Zero this year.

X-Men: Days of Future Past: The next installment of the X-Men series promises to merge characters from past movies into one cohesive whole -- we hope! Director Bryan Singer tweeted a photo of yet another mutant hero, Kitty Pryde, aka Shadowcat, aka Ellen Page. She last appeared in 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, the year before Page broke out in Juno. X-Men: Days of Future Past is scheduled to hit theaters on July 18, 2014. [Coming Soon
 
 
Despicable Me 2: Ah, the advantages of animation. In the process of recording his voice role as the villain in Despicable Me 2, Al Pacino experienced "creative differences" with the filmmakers, and so he and they agreed that he would exit the project, which is due for wide release on July 3 -- yes, about two months from now. However, a replacement voice has quickly been found, and so Pacino's work will be discarded and Benjamin Bratt will record everything in time for the movie's release. [Deadline]
 
Star Trek Into Darkness TV Spot: Early reviews have already popped up for Star Trek Into Darkness -- spoiler: they're mostly positive! -- even though the movie doesn't open in the U.S. until May 17. And for those watching at home, a new television spot has been prepared that distills all the good things we've been hearing into 48 seconds of excitement. [Paramount Pictures]
