What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly column dedicated to links. These links will take you places. Mostly to great articles with topics rooted in the entertainment industry. Sometimes to shenanigans. You just never know. Especially if you don’t read before clicking.

Comic-Con begins this week, and as you might expect, our team will be there to bring you all the play-by-play. If you’re around the San Diego Convention Center this coming weekend, keep an eye out for the Rejects. Also, you should read this 25 easy rules of Comic-Con etiquette over at io9. We will adhere to at least 10 of these. We promise.

So far, the best idea that anyone can come up with in the “find a way to keep Friday Night Lights going” contest is this: a film adaptation. Even though Universal studios has denied it, word is that a big screen project is in the works based on the hit show. It’s in the hands of Peter Berg, so it can’t be all bad.

The fine folks at Mondo Tees have unleashed a six-pack of awesome Captain America posters from three of the best working artists around. Slashfilm debuted two posters from Tyler Stout, whose work is great but feels like it’s getting repetitive. Badass Digest posted up two propaganda posters from Olly Moss. And finally, Wired has debuted two more propaganda posters from Eric Tan. This is the one I want, so if anyone can score one for me, that’d be rad:

Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is getting a zero-hour rewrite. His 300 collaborator Kurt Johnstad is on to take a pass at a script that has already been in the capable hands of both David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan. There’s no indication that there’s any reason to worry, as the film is still yet to begin shooting.

As expected (from here, at least) the season four premiere of Breaking Bad was the show’s most-watched episode in show history. 2.6 million viewers tuned in. To which I responded: that’s it?

Joe Johnston is talking to press in advance of Captain America, and instead of talking about The First Avenger, of course the press wants to talk about other projects that exist in future development land. Among those is Jurassic Park 4. Johnston is involved. It starts a new trilogy. A new direction.

Universal Pictures doesn’t want to spend the money to do The Dark Tower the way Ron Howard and Brian Glazer want to do it. The producers want to make three movies and two connecting TV arcs. Universal would rather have one movie. The fans get nothing.

I feel like I’ve published this before, but couldn’t find it. And I was reminded of it today by the folks at MovieLine. Here is Lady Gaga’s “Born this Way” as interpreted by the X-Men.
