by | March 9, 2007 | Comments

In this week’s Ketchup, Julian McMahon spoke of Dr. Doom wardrobe issues in "Fantastic Four 2," Tobey Maguire discussed his questionable "Spider-Man" future, and George Lucas covered everything of relevance in his upcoming projects.

Also, a "Forrest Gump" sequel could be in the works, and the upcoming "Fantastic Four" sequel will feature an appearance by Galactus himself. Read on.

This Week’s Most Popular News:

Julian McMahon Talks Dr. Doom Costumes in "FF2"

Dr. Doom may be the comic book equivalent to Julia Roberts, trying on different outfits in front of a mirror in a romantic comedy montage. He seems to have more outfits in "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" than most divas.

Tobey Maguire Waves Goodbye to "Spider-Man"

It’s a pretty safe bet that (eventually) there will be some more "Spider-Man" sequels, but it doesn’t look like those supervillains will have Tobey Maguire to kick around any more.

Lucas Update: Portman, "Star Wars," and "Indy 4"

Got a grab-bag of George Lucas news bits for you, including a final denial that Natalie Portman will appear in "Indiana Jones 4," plus a few new items on those long-discussed "Star Wars" TV projects.

Who’s Ready for "Forrest Gump 2"?

A few years back I was in a bookstore and saw a paperback called "Gump & Co.," which was (obviously) a follow-up to "Forrest Gump." I remember wondering why they hadn’t made a movie based on the second novel, and now I know A) why they didn’t, and B) when they might.

"Fantastic Four 2" to Feature That Galactus Guy

This is how Wikipedia describes the Marvel character Galactus: "Sometimes called the Devourer of Worlds or Ravager of Planets, Galactus is an enormously powerful being who must "feed" on the energy of planets to survive." Neat. And apparently this big lug will be making an appearance in "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer."
