MATTHEW VAUGHN


Source: ComingSoon.net

It’s been touch and go for the last week, but KICK-ASS director Matthew Vaughn has been confirmed to helm X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, 20th Century Fox’s prequel to the lucrative franchise based on the Marvel Comics super-team. Not only have they signed Vaughn, directing his third movie in a row based on comic material, but Fox is confident enough in his abilities to set a release date for June 3, 2011, a little less than 13 months from today.

Plot synopsis: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, following the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.”

Marvel Studios is in final negotiations for Buffy the Vampire Slayer series architect Joss Whedon to direct Marvel Studios’ The Avengers. That’s the fast-tracked film that would amount to an all-star team of Marvel superheros, including Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), as well as SHIELD leader Nick Fury (Samuel L. 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 FIRST AVENGER: CAPTAIN AMERICA’ Update: SEBASTIAN STAN Lands BUCKY BARNES Role

CAPTAIN AMERICA And BUCKY BARNES

SEBASTIAN STAN

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.

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.

BRYAN SINGER Will Produce ‘X-MEN: FIRST CLASS’ Instead Of Direct – Here’s Why

March 29, 2010

BRYAN SINGER


Source: Deadline.com

Following up on a previous post that said BRIAN SINGER would direct the next X-MEN movie franchise; ‘X-MEN: FIRST CLASS’:

[Brian] Singer and 20th Century Fox have formalized his move from director to producer on X-Men: First Class. That is the bad news for X-Men die-hards who love the first two films Singer directed. Here’s the good part: he is leaving because Fox liked the script that Jamie Moss wrote from Singer’s treatment so much that the studio wants the film right away, envisioning it as the first leg of a trilogy. The hope is to have it ready for 2011 release.

Singer will join Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg as producers. He’s not available because Warner Bros and Legendary are locked into a summer production start on Jack the Giant Killer. They’ll begin casting shortly. It is a big CG project, and they are likely to either shoot 3D or convert it later.

'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.”
