Written by: Big Ross, CC2K Staff Writer

ImageThis morning we have new posters for Punisher: War Zone,  Saw V, and Dragonball as well as  some interesting details from Jon Favreau about upcoming Marvel films, more!

IESB has a video posted of an interview with Iron Man director Jon Favreau.  In it he said a few interesting things about upcoming Marvel projects.  He denied rumors that Thor will be introduced in Iron Man 2, and confirmed that the Norse god will be getting his own film due out the same year as the Iron Man sequel.  Favreau also revealed, or at least confirmed the title of the upcoming Captain America film as Captain America: The First Avenger.

For all you Godfather fanatics, check it out, The Godfather Trilogy is going to be released on Blu-Ray.  The deets:

On September 23rd, Paramount Home Entertainment will release the newly restored classic THE GODFATHER COLLECTION: THE COPPOLA RESTORATION on DVD and Blu-ray! Completely restored to their original pristine glory (overseen by Francis Ford Coppola himself), THE GODFATHER COLLECTION: THE COPPOLA RESTORATION not only includes the bonus material from the original box set, but it also boasts a bevy of all-new extra features! An extensive frame-by-frame restoration (that took more than a year to complete) ensures that THE GODFATHER films look just as great as they did the day they premiered in theaters.

Does that sound like an offer you can refuse?

Universal Pictures has just debuted the trailer and teaser site for The Tale of Despereaux, a modern animated adventure of four unlikely heroes: Despereaux (Matthew Broderick), Roscuro (Dustin Hoffman), Pea (Emma Watson), and Mig (Tracey Ullman).  

There’s a new promotional site for The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, starring Brendan Fraser, Jet Li, Maria Bello, and directed by Rob Cohen. This time around, the action shifts to Asia as explorer Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) combats the resurrected Han Emperor (Jet Li). 

Finally, we’ve got new posters for Punisher: War Zone, Saw V, and Dragonball in our gallery.  Click on the thumbnails to enlarge!
