X-Men 3 & Ghost Rider (updates)

GM! Though it's a slow news weekend, I've dug up a few stories you might enjoy:

Superhero Hype! has received new updates on both Fox's X-Men 3, which just started shooting in Vancouver, and Sony's Ghost Rider, which has completed filming.

In regards to the former, it looks like Cameron Bright (Birth, Godsend) will stars as Leech in the third mutant installment. For more news on the anticipated film, click here.

Also, Ghost Rider writer/director Mark Steven Johnson has continued answering fans' questions about the comic book adaptation on the Superhero Hype! message boards. Here's a clip on the voice you'll hear for Ghost Rider in the movie:

Things are going great on the G.R. front. In fact, today I got to hear the Ghost Rider's voice for the first time!!! My Sound Designer is Dane Davis, who won the Academy Award for The Matrix, and is a true genius when it comes to creating new sounds. To start with, Dane took Nic's reading of all of the Ghost Rider's lines, filtered them through 3 different kinds of animal growls (played backwards, covering three separate frequencies) then played it through a mechanical volumizer, before finally setting the whole thing on fire! It's fantastic. Picture a deep, demonic, mechanical lion's roar and you'll get an idea of what he sounds like. One thing is for sure -- his voice will shake the theatre!

Johnson also addressed the leaked Comic-Con footage and his answers to questions can all be found here.
