Eidos has issued a press release revealing their E3 line-up, which includes Batman: Arkham Asylum, Just Cause 2, and Mini Ninjas, with no signs of a public Tomb Raider reveal. Oh, but that’s not stopping the blogosphere from speculating about Lara’s return.

Twitter has spawned a new ‘net-culture of insta-news and one-liner blog-rants, and has also become, of all things, an all-around rumor-generator that tickles everyone’s inner fanboy senses…and, sad to say, we’ve fallen victim to it.

Following a tweet-tease from Eidos community manager Keir Edmonds about “a special announcement in the next couple of days,” another twitter who claims to have insider info on the upcoming E3 points to a new ‘Raider being announced at the expo.

While Edmonds’ tweet could very well be about any of Eidos’ other major titles, the anonymous E3 tipster specifically makes mention of a new Tomb Raider title that will “revolutionize” the series, echoing Eidos pres Ian Livingstone’s excitement about “remarkable things” that will “surprise people and reinvigorate the franchise.”

Of course we’re filing this under rumors for now, and while we are hopeful, we’re definitely not counting on it. There’s also been mention of the next Hitman title, and even that‘s not part of Eidos’ official line-up. Oh well, there’s your bull(sh*t)dozer.

Megan Fox, once again, denies rumor of taking over the Lara Croft role for the upcoming Hollywood ‘Raider reboot. “I’m not replacing Angelina Jolie. I’m not replacing anyone,” Fox has told Sun Media. “I don’t know if I can carry an action franchise. Right now I don’t even know if anyone will come to see me in a little independent movie.”

But really, Megan? We’d come to see you in anything. AND last time we heard, the reboot won’t even be that action-oriented anymore, so what gives?

Oh well, that’s that, folks. Fox now officially off our radar. We remain on stand by for other pings.

Megan Fox is “not involved in the movie at all” January 29, 2009

This one’s a late pick-up, but it does deserve its own entry. Sci-Fi site io9 has apparently contacted Megan’s camp about the rumors circulating that she might be the next Lara Croft on the big screen. Megan’s spokesperson only had this to say: “She’s not involved in the movie at all.”

We’d like to add “yet” at the end of that sentence. Unless there’s massive fan revolt, there’s nothing to stop Warner Bros. to pursue Fox if they wanted to.
