ImageThis morning we have news of an even more ridiculous name for Disney's planned Tron sequel, possible plans for another Speed sequel, new images from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and more!

George Miller is officially off of the still planned JLA movie, confirming that "he's no longer involved in…any capacity."

More news on the ridiculous naming of the Tron sequel.  Up to this point it was called "TR2N," but /Film is reporting it is now being called "TRZ."  That's a "Z", not a "2".  I'm not even sure how to pronounce that.  WTF Disney?

Are there plans for a third Speed film that hope to see the return of Keanu Reeves?  Is there any way this could be a good idea?

Confusion followed earlier reports that Russell Crowe was going to be playing both Robin Hood and the Sheriff in Ridley Scott's film Nottingham.  Prodcuer Brian Grazer has spilled the beans big time with the following SPOILER-FILLED revelation as to just how this is going to work.  I've put it in Inviso-text, so highlight the area below if you want to read how this is going to work.

"The two role confusion is that what Robin Hood does is he sees Nottingham in battle very early in the movie and Nottingham dies. And Robin Hood takes over the identity of Nottingham. Thats how it plays out."

We've got a poster for New in Town:
