Jackson).

Article forgot to mention a very likely chance of Ed Norton reprising his Bruce Banner role from THE INCREDIBLE HULK a couple years ago. Rumor still being the Hulk goes nutz and that is the catalyst that brings the Avengers together.

‘THE AVENGERS’ Update: IRON MAN, THOR, CAPTAIN AMERICA, And – HULK!?

January 29, 2010

HULK, THOR, IRON MAN, and CAPTAIN AMERICA will anchor 'THE AVENGERS'


Source: SuperHeroHype.com

Starting to sound like the plan. But will the Hulk be friend or foe?? THRALL WORLD has heard rumors going as far back as late 2008 of the Hulk actually being the “villian” – a la a rampaging Hulk – which was a typical storyline every few years if you read The Incredible Hulk comic book. At some point when the Hulk went apeshit the heroes of the Marvel Universe had to bring take the big green guy down. And that, of course, was always easier said than done.

The latest from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige:

“By the time ‘The Avengers’ comes in 2012, it’s not just a team superhero movie with a bunch of characters with powers. It’s three people – four including the Hulk; five including Nick Fury – who you’ve seen before in other movies, coming together for the very first time.”

He also goes on to explain that they want to do a second Hulk movie with ED NORTON but that it definitely will not be until after ‘THE AVENGERS’ hits theaters on May, 4th 2012.

‘THOR’ Movie Update: Screenwriter ASHLEY MILLER Speaks

May 31, 2009

THOR About Ready To Smash Some Face

Writer ASHLEY MILLER on how she and writer ZACK STENTZ became involved with the movie:

“We were in the right place at the right time.”

“That we have a background in genre material and an interest in comic books were big plusses, I think. Owning a complete Walt Simonson run on Thor and being able to wax rhapsodic about Beta Ray Bill didn’t hurt our case.”

Read the entire interview HERE.

THOR will be played by CHRIS HEMSWORTH and LOKI will be played by TOM HIDDLESTON in the KENNETH BRANAGH directed movie which serves as a warm-up for the big AVENGERS movie enchilada. Robert Downey Jr. as IRON MAN and an uncast (as of yet) CAPTAIN AMERICA will also star in the movie that is expected to feature a rampaging HULK as the catalyst that will bring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes together for the very first time.

THRALL WORLD observes that the best news in this interview is the writers familiarity with the very storyline that we began with when reading comic books way back in our wee one days. WALT SIMONSON’s “SURTUR SAGA” is damn good reading even if you’re not the biggest fan of comics. Also a mention of the more modern Thor take from ‘THE ULTIMATES’ in the interview.

Word on the street is that CHRIS HEMSWORTH (STAR TREK) has landed the role of THOR. Marvel Studios should be making an official anouncement at any moment.

Check out the full scoop HERE and HERE.

[HEMSWORTH is] also reported to [have landed] the lead in MGM’s remake of Red Dawn, taking over the role of Jed Eckert, originally played by Patrick Swayze.

Thor is scheduled to open on May 20, 2011, while Red Dawn is scheduled for release on September 24, 2010.

THRALL WORLD just caught HEMSWORTH in the new STAR TREK movie. He played Captain Kirk’s father in a brief but solid performance.

btw, THOR was the first comic book I ever bought back in the day, a few issues before WALT SIMONSON took over the book on his critically acclaimed SURTUR SAGA. Pretty cool stuffs for my wee self back in the day.

As Wall Street continues to capture headlines due to market volatility, 20th Century Fox is moving forward with a “Wall Street” sequel.

Allan Loeb (“21”) has been tapped to pen the screenplay, which is being fast-tracked by the studio as a Michael Douglas starrer, though the actor is not formally attached.

The modern-day story will again center on Gordon Gekko, who has recently been sprung from prison and re-emerges into a much more tumultuous financial world than the one he once lorded over. The Bud Fox character, played by Charlie Sheen in the original, will not appear in the latest incarnation.

No word on whether OLIVER STONE will be involved but it seems unlikely.
