Being chased by agents of the primary film villian THE RED SKULL and/or agents of H.Y.D.R.A. – there is non-unanimous confirmation as to exactly who they are.

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.

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


Source: ComingSoon.net

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

New INCREDIBLE HULK Website Launches With WS Trailer

THE INCREDIBLE HULK Website Launches

A Day after debuting on MTV.com Marvel has added the new HULK Movie trailer in WideScreen on the official INCREDIBLE HULK website for the movie.

Turns out the cameo by Iron Man I speculated on in my post yesterday is all part of a bigger plan that points to an all-out AVENGERS movie which I, of course, am very pleased to hear about. Crossovers galore in upcoming movies that feature original Avengers lineup members which included both Hulk and Iron Man as well as Ant Man (in development with Shaun of the Dead director), Captain America, and even(though not an Avenger) Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D who is to be played by Samuel L. Jackson.

ED NORTON: New HULK Movie Will Have Nothing To Do With 2003 Hulk Movie

Edward Norton talked to Total Film magazine (via The Sun) and said there is no connection between upcoming The Incredible Hulk and 2003’s Hulk.

“First off it’s utterly unrelated to that film,” he told the magazine. “This is in no way a response to it or picking up from it. I think like Chris Nolan and those guys did with Batman, we just said: ‘We’re going to start completely with our own version of this myth or saga.'”

While he said “no” to the role a couple of times until he was able to rewrite the screenplay, Norton now says the story will likely span more than one film. “To me the whole thing was to envision it in multiple parts,” he said. “We left a lot out on purpose. It’s definitely intended as chapter one.”

The Incredible Hulk opens in theaters on June 13.

I was one of the few people who actually liked the Ang Lee Hulk movie. After hearing so many bad reviews of the movie I passed on it in the theater and my expectations were low when I finally caught it on one of the movie channels. Only in watching, I could see exactly where Ang Lee was coming from both in style and story. And much like Raimi in Spider-Man and Singer in X-Men, I was impressed with his ability to capture the old school vintage comic book hero in classic panels from the comic books circa the mid-late 60’s.

I really wanted to see Eric Bana reprise the role but that’s not going to happen.

Moving on, I’m optimistic about the upcoming version (despite that it’s based on the Hulk television series of which I was NOT a fan) mostly based on strength of cast (Norton, William Hurt, Tim Roth) and director (Louis Leterrier of TRANSPORTER fame) but who knows. The Fantastic Four movies have been a disaster and Daredevil was so weak it never came back so it’s not like they haven’t made mistakes.
