Much like in 2007 when the opening scene of The Dark Knight was attached to I Am Legend Warner Bros. has decided to do so again. But without one of their releases in IMAX this year the prologue of 'Rises' will be attached to Brad Bird's upcoming Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol.
Mission: Impossible is opening exclusively in IMAX on December 16th. So get those tickets ready.
It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.
