Marvel Movie Updates
Sequels and more Sequels
By Robert T. Trate

With the premiere of The Avengers last week in Hollywood, a lot of Marvel Movie News is hitting the web. We are doing our best in trying to make sense of it. Nothing is ever scripture as directors, actors, and story lines can change in an instant. Here is what we learned thus far:
Iron Man 3
Will be directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) and feature all the returning principles including Scarlett Johansson. Yet, no word has been given on who Ben Kingsley will be playing. Filming begins next month with a release date of May 3rd, 2013.
Captain America 2
Chris Evans will return yet no other casting has been announced. The release date is already set, April 4th, 2014.
Hulk 3: Return of the Monster (not the official title, just one we made up)
Mark Ruffalo wants his own Hulk Movie. If his portrayal of Bruce Banner catches on, then it is a good possibility.
Robert Downey Jr. stated at the press junket that he had to shoot one more scene for the film. Whedon and producer Kevin Feige said it wasn’t true. Hemsworth and Ruffalo said it was. Was it for something after the credits?
Will be helmed by Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor. The film will also have Tom Hiddleston reprise his role as Loki. I guess you just can’t keep a good villain down. Thor 2 has a release date of November 15th, 2013.
Edgar Wright is directing and Joe Cornish is writing the screenplay. It is currently slated for 2014. Our hope is that Robert Downey Jr’s extra shooting day has something to do with this.
