JOSS WHEDON

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' - Due in theaters July 22, 2011

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..

‘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 About Ready To Smash Some Face


Source: IMDB, ComingSoon.net

Marvel Studios has nabbed May 6, 2011 as the new release date for ‘THOR’ after the producers of ‘SPIDER-MAN 4’ opted to postpone fiming and reboot the entire SPIDER-MAN franchise.

THOR has begun filming and the latest casting info is:

Chris Hemsworth as Thor – the God of Thunder
Tom Hiddleston as Loki
Natalie Portman as Thor’s human love interest – Jane Foster
Anthony Hopkins as Odin
Jaimie Alexander as Thor’s Asgardian love interest – Sif
Colm Feore as a yet to be revealed villian
Stellan Skarsgård as Professor Andrew Ford
Renee Russo as Frigga
Ray Stevenson as Volstagg
Tadanobu Asano as Hogun
Josh Dallas as Fandral
Idris Elba as Heimdall
Justin Chatwin as Balder

Plot snopsis: Partially disabled medical student Dr. Donald Blake discovers his heretofore unknown alter ego, the Norse warrior, Thor.

The addition of Ray Stevenson is an interesting cast addition – actually kind of funny if you’re familiar with the comic book. The character Volstagg could end up being a sort of comic insert in some scenes a la Gimli from the Lord Of The Rings trilogy.
