Movie Talk: We reported a few weeks ago on our website that Robert Downey Jr has been cast by director Jon Favreau to play the dual role of Tony Stark/Iron Man in the upcoming big screen feature about the famous comic book character. Now, in addition to Downey, actor Terrence Howard, star of “Hustle and Flow” and hit movie “Idlewild” has been joined to star as Stark’s friend and confidante Jim “Rhodey” Rhodes.
Rhodes is a pilot and high ranking military officer. It is he and his team that develop the robotic suit that allows the ailing Stark to fly around and do harm to evil doers. Rhodes also is a sort of superhero, known as “War Machine” and has his own cool armored suit to wear.

SciFi Channel’s “Battlestar Galactica” had been rumored to be acquired and added to NBC’s primetime lineup, but NBC execs are more than happy to leave the show on SciFi Channel, where’s it’s been the top-rated Friday night show for three years running.
Interview: Ernst Dabel and Sean Jordan from Dabel Brothers Productions join Michael and Summer to talk about their newest ventures working with Marvel Comics, and some of the new novels currently in production as graphic novel adaptations.
Future Talk: What’s Coming Up?
David Eick, the executive producer behind “Battlestar Galactica” will be joined by screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis to do for “The Bionic Woman” what he and Moore did for Battlestar Galactica, and bring the 70s staple series into a more modern mindset.
The idea is to set the series against a backdrop of contemporary themes and scenarios that would include everything from global warming, dictorial oppression and international terrorism, while at the same time facing the issues that confront the modern professional woman of today. Look for the new show on NBC sometime in 2007.
