Recommended Posts

Marvel Entertainment released their first quarter report to its shareholders this morning to coincide with the announcement about the success this past weekend of Marvel Studios' first production Iron Man, which grossed an estimated $104.2 million domestically and over $201 million worldwide. The announcement included an update of Marvel Studios' feature film slate with the already-rumored Iron Man 2 announced for a release on April 30, 2010, followed by three more movies for the summers of '10 and '11. Matthew Vaughn's Thor is set for a release on June 4, 2010, and The First Avenger: Captain America (the working title) will kick off the summer of 2011 on May 6, followed by the highly-anticipated and foreshadowed The Avengers scheduled for July 2011. (Edgar Wright's Ant-Man is also listed as being in development with no release date set.)

 

In a conference call this morning, Marvel Studios' David Maisel said that Iron Man 2 will be used to introduce Thor. Regarding more "Hulk" movies, Maisel said "We definitely plan on continuing." He added that development continues on Spider-Man 4. "I can't give any other updates other than to say it's in development and everybody's excited about 'Spider-Man 4,'" he said.

 

With that in mind, one can start expecting a lot more announcements in the coming months about creative teams and casting for those movies including who might direct the Captain America and Avengers movies. (Whomever plays Steve Rogers AKA Captain America presumably will be making two movies at once.)

It will be interesting to see what road they take with Captain America and Thor.

They messed up with Venom's morals in SM3.

 

He would never have put innocents in harm's way like he did in the movie. He was only concerned about making Spider-Man suffer. It was really always about the symbiote (and Eddie Brock) getting revenge on Parker.

Two new updates on some of the upcoming Marvel films listed above:

 

The First Avenger: Captain America

 

IGN.com-

 

May 8, 2008 - Hot on the heels of the news that Marvel Studios has finalized its film release slate through 2011, the rumor mill has churned out a big name contender to play the title role in the studio's The First Avenger: Captain America.

 

According to Cinema Blend, Fool's Gold and Sahara star Matthew McConaughey "may be one of Marvel's leading candidates to slip into Cap's red white and blue underpants. Our source is a reliable one, but at this point it's still very early and he's only one of the actor's [sic] they are considering for the role."

 

While Iron Man proved that casting an older lead such as Robert Downey Jr. could work, McConaughey is almost two decades too old to play scrawny young enlisted man-turned-super soldier Steve Rogers. When The First Avenger opens May 6, 2011, McConaughey will be just a few months shy of his 42nd birthday.

 

The Hollywood Reporter said this week that "the Captain America project is looking for a rewrite as well as a director." David Self penned the previous draft of the screenplay.

Thor: Director Vaughn Drops Out

 

IGN.com-

 

May 8, 2008 - Directing a Marvel movie just doesn't appear to be in the cards for filmmaker Matthew Vaughn. The Stardust and Layer Cake helmer had been set to direct X-Men: The Last Stand a few years ago before dropping out and being replaced by Brett Ratner. Vaughn was then attached to bring Marvel's Norse god of thunder, Thor, to the big-screen, but that is reportedly no longer the case as well.

 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Matthew Vaughn no longer is attached to direct the project because his holding deal expired December."

 

Marvel Studios is currently waiting for I Am Legend screenwriter Mark Protosevich to turn in a script polish. "It's very much a Marvel superhero story but against the backdrop of nothing you've seen before," Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said of Thor.

An interesting rumor about a potential actor to play the God of Thunder:

 

IGN.com:

 

May 12, 2008 - While it looks like Marvel Studios' big screen version of Thor is in need of a new director, the rumor mill suggests the studio is nevertheless moving ahead with casting and is mulling a certain A-list star to play their god of thunder.

 

According to Latino Review, Marvel is eyeing none other than Brad Pitt to play Thor. Pitt's no stranger to playing ancient armored heroes, having previously portrayed Achilles in Wolfgang Petersen's Troy.

 

The site points out that "no offer has been made to Pitt yet," but that he's high up on their wish list.
