November 7, 2013

A Marvel Team-Up of the epic kind. THE DEFENDERS would be rad! FOX gave up on DAREDEVIL so the rights reverted back to MARVEL and it looks like they have wasted no time in getting ol’ horn-head back into the mix. Killer plan overall – THRALL WORLD can hardly wait. Details below.

Led by a series focused on “Daredevil,” followed by “Jessica Jones,” “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage,” the epic will unfold over multiple years of original programming, taking Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell’s Kitchen, New York. Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and a culminating Marvel’s “The Defenders” mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.

Tommy Lee Jones [has been cast] in ‘CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER’ in a still-unknown role. Hayley Atwell, who plays Peggy Carter in the Joe Johnston-directed comic book adaptation, confirmed the news [in the interview below].

Sebastian Stan [GOSSIP GIRL, KINGS], one of the actors who tested for the title role of Marvel’s “Captain America” which ultimately went to Chris Evans, has nabbed the key role of Captain America’s sidekick Bucky Barnes.

In comic book lore, Barnes, a teenaged orphan, was too young to join the army but became one camp’s mascot. When he discovered Captain America’s identity, he joined Captain America as a partner in his Nazi-fighting escapades. The character died in Captain America’s final World War II adventure.

Insiders also say Stan has signed on for five or six pictures.

Read more HERE.

THRALL WORLD is aware of the talented Sebastian Stan from the cancelled NBC sci-fi show ‘KINGS’ which also starred IAN MCSHANE.

‘THE FIRST AVENGER: CAPTAIN AMERICA’ will hit theaters July 22, 2011.

CAPTAIN AMERICA Has Been Cast!!! CHRIS EVANS Will Be THE FIRST AVENGER – HUGO WEAVING Cast As RED SKULL

'THE FIRST AVENGER: CAPTAIN AMERICA' - Due in theaters July 22, 2011

Chris Evans (“Fantastic Four” films) has accepted Marvel Studios’ offer for him to play Steve Rogers/Captain America in the Joe Johnston-directed The First Avenger: Captain America.

The deal calls for Evans to star in at least three “Captain America” movies, with the first hitting theaters on July 22, 2011.

He would reprise the role in The Avengers, which will united Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and the Incredible Hulk (Edward Norton) in one film. That film is scheduled for May 4, 2012. The character also will likely make cameo appearances in Marvel’s other films.

Hugo Weaving will play the villain Red Skull in THE FIRST AVENGER: CAPTAIN AMERICA.

Chris Evans played Johnny Storm (AKA The Human Torch) in the FOX produced (and completely forgetable) FANTASTIC FOUR movies from a few years ago.

CHRIS EVANS will be THE FIRST AVENGER: CAPTAIN AMERICA due in theaters July 22nd, 2011

Who Will Play CAPTAIN AMERICA?? Lead Contenders Emerge – Details

'THE FIRST AVENGER: CAPTAIN AMERICA' - Due in theaters July 22, 2011

Those known to be on the list with [John] Krasinski include Michael Cassidy (who appeared in”Smallvile” and who tested for the Superman movie when McG was going to direct it), Patrick Flueger (one of the stars of “The 4400″ who most recently appeared in the Tobey Maguire movie “Brothers”), Scott Porter (TV’s “Friday Night Lights”) and Mike Vogel (“Cloverfield”).

Chace Crawford is also in talks to screen test, though no deal has been made.

Garret Hedlund, already starring in Disney’s “Tron,” was also on the list to test but has fallen off, at least for now, because of scheduling conflicts. Insiders say he may still make the testing round. Jensen Ackles is another actor who had scheduling conflicts.

The studio has put the actors on 30-day holds during the testing process.

One more interesting note:

So far, no British or Australian actors have been seriously considered though the search could widen if no suitable candidates are found.

Finally starting to get some early movement on where the CAPTAIN AMERICA movie will be going.

[Director Joe] Johnston confirmed at the press conference that the Red Skull will indeed be the villain of the first movie.

Joe Johnston:

“Virtually the entire story except the bookends are in World War II because we all recognize we have one chance to tell the origin story of how he became Captain America, you can’t tell a modern story and then go back and tell the origin story.”

DAREDEVIL Reboot In The Works

February 6, 2010

'DAREDEVIL' Movie Poster


Source: Deadline.com

Right on time considering Hollwoods reboot, remake, sequel mentality and the current trend in favor of comic book properties. Also – seven years since the disaster that was DAREDEVIL starring Ben Affleck as sightless attorney Matt Murdock turned super sensory enhanced costumed crime fighter who patrolled NYC’s “Hells Kitchen”.

Regency is mounting the remake with former News Corp No. 2 Peter Chernin producing. Writing the redo is screenwriter David Scarpa.

“Use it or lose it” in effect:

Hollywood studios with Marvel superheroes need to keep reinventing these Marvel movie franchises or the rights revert back to Disney-based Marvel.

The studio rights for the Marvel characters are currently spread around in such a way that The Avengers will never team up with The X-Men, Fantastic 4, The X-Men, Spider-Man, or Daredevil.

THRALL WORLD wishful thinking would have as our MOST sought after Marvel Team-Up a meeting between Daredevil and Spider-Man with Spider-Man hanging out with the Fantastic 4 a distant second. Some newer school comic fanboys would probably favor a Spider-Man and Wolverine encounter.

I guess we’ll all just have to sit around and What If amongst ourselves..
