• Will John Malkovich be the Vulture in Spider-Man 4? It’s a great choice: Vulture’s one of the best villains in the Spider-Man universe, though he might seem a bit like a lightweight compared to Doc Ock, Sandman or Venom.

• Josh Brolin might replace Tommy Lee Jones in Men in Black 3. Another interesting choice, though I question whether Brolin has the comedic chops to hold his own against Will Smith.

• James Cameron says his next movie will likely be a scifi samurai epic. Can’t wait to see it in 2020, Jimmy!

• Forrest J. Ackerman’s monster and scifi magazine, Famous Monsters of Filmland, is due to be relaunched.

• ABC has shortened the episode order for its under-performing scifi shows V and FlashForward.
