Stan Lee is set to pop up in yet another Marvel movie for the five people who still get excited by spotting his well-groomed face dodging some debris or selling a hot dog. The comic icon hit Twitter over the weekend to announce the news.

Director Says He Was "Relieved" When Cage No Longer Wanted The RoleAt one time, "The Green Hornet" looked very different. Seth Rogen was still on board in the lead, crime-fighting role but Stephen Chow, the star of "Kung Fu Hustle" was signed up to direct and play Kato and Nicolas Cage was in talks for the villain. He eventually walked from the part and at the time, gave a very sober account of an actor struggling to ensure the integrity of the character he was looking to play. Interesting coming from the guy with "Season of the Witch" now in theaters, but anyway....

All in all, 2011 should be a pretty good year for Colin Farrell. The actor's been on the comeback trail in a big way in the last few years, leading with "In Bruges," and he's got no fewer than four films due for release in the coming year. We already know that one of them, William Monahan's "London Boulevard," is a stinker, but the other three, (Peter Weir's already-in-limited-release "The Way Back"; the horror-comedy "Fright Night" and the full-on-comedy "Horrible Bosses") are all promising to one degree or another, and it should cement the return of the once-troubled star to the A-list.
