Leonardo DiCaprio, who picks his projects very carefully, has had his next projec t , "Legacy of Secrecy," picked out for him by his father, George• Leo and his dad will produce the film, which asserts that Mafia kingpin Carlos Marcello, who died in 1993, orchestrated the assassination of President John F, Kennedy. The film is planned for a 2013 release to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's death. Now that TV is lousy with so many reality shows, we have to go to our local multiplex theaters to escape• It seems movie thoguls have decided the perfect escape from reality are superheroes. Here is a partial list of the superheroes who will be coming our way: You can expect "The Green Hornet" with Seth Rogan in the title role, aided and abetted by Cameron Diaz and this year's best supporting Oscar winner, Christopher Waltz, on Jan. 14, 2011. "Thor" will be arriving on May 6, 2011, starring Chris Hemsworth, (brother of Liam Hemsworth of "The Last Song," who may or may not be dating his co-star Miley Cyrus). "Thor" does, however, have Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins and "Star Wars" Princess Amidala (Natalie Portman) going for it. Ryan Reynolds, People Magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive", will hit screens June 17, 2011, as "The Green Lantern," with "Gossip Girl" Blake Lively and Peter Sarsgaard backing him up. On July 22, 2011, you'll see the return of "Captain America: First Avenger" with Chris Evans (who has heavily beefed up for the title role), along with Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones and Oscar nominees Samuel L. Jackson and Stanley Tucci lending ample support. Then in July 2012, "The Dark Knight Rises" will bring back Christian Bale as Batman with Oscar winners Mi- chael Caine and Morgan Freeman, as well as Gary Oldman, reprising their characters from the original film. Of course, no superhero list would be complete without "Superman: Man of Steel," which is scheduled for re- lease December 2012. While it does have a budget of $250 million, it does not have someone to play the Man of Steel. Some fans have been online requesting producers cast Brandon Rough, who was the previous Super- man, while others think "True Blood" star Joe Manganiello or "90210" and "The Bold and The Beautiful" star Adam Gregory, last seen in "Hanna I lontana.
