The Avengers

Hulk to Wrestler: Still bulked up, perhaps, from his preparations to play Bruce Banner (AKA) The Incredible Hulk in The Avengers (above), Mark Ruffalo is in negotiations to play an ill-fated real-life wrestler for director Bennett Miller (Moneyball) in Foxcatcher. Steve Carell is already set to star as a troubled heir to the du Pont fortune; Channing Tatum will also, we presume, be taking off his shirt in the movie. [Showblitz]

Busy Blunt: With key parts in romantic comedy The Five-Year Engagement and time-travel adventure Looper on her release horizon this year, Emily Blunt is busy lining up more work. Next up may be sci-fi action flick All You Need is Kill, in which she would star opposite Tom Cruise as a fellow soldier; Doug Liman will direct. She is also under consideration to pair off with Johnny Depp in Rob Marshall’s The Thin Man; she’s up against Emma Stone and Kristin Wiig for that coveted role. [Variety]

The Phantom Passes: Actor William Finley, 69, has died. Most memorably, he played the (dual) title role in Brian DePalma’s The Phantom of the Paradise, but also essayed fine, often creephy character roles in Eaten Alive, The Fury, Silent Rage, and others. His death was announced by Edgar Wright, a big fan of the actor, who happened to email him on the day he passed away. [Edgar Wright Here]

'Prometheus' in Russian May Be Even Scarier: After featuring the Japanese trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man yesterday, we couldn't resist showing you the Russian trailer for Prometheus today, which includes a little more previously-unseen footage and the unsettling sight of your favorite stars speaking Russian. Also, check out a new viral clip featuring Michael Fassbender promoting the robotics technology at Weyland Industries. [Twitch]
