SAM WORTHINGTON confirmed to return in a 'CLASH OF THE TITANS' sequel


Source: Deadline.com

Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures are moving ahead with a sequel to Clash of the Titans, which the studio would like as early as spring, 2012. But they will make the journey without Louis Leterrier, who will not return for an encore as director. Sam Worthington will return, as well as most every other character that survived.

Greg Berlanti will write the story and the studio is already canvassing the agencies for a writer and director who can whip the movie into shape to shoot before Worthington makes Avatar 2. Leterrier will remain peripherally involved as executive producer.

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).

Read more HERE.

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.

AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!! JOSS WHEDON all but confirmed to direct big screen 'THE AVENGERS' movie

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’ Movie Update: Screenwriter ASHLEY MILLER Speaks

May 31, 2009

THOR About Ready To Smash Some Face

THOR About Ready To Smash Some Face


Source: CineFools.com

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.
