Marvel Movie Updates

Sequels and more Sequels

By Robert T. Trate     April 14, 2012

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. 

Avengers Reshoot?
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?

Thor 2
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. 

Ant-Man 
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.

Trate, we gave u like 100 titles to pick for the Hulk sequel, and u go with Return of The Monster? Disappointing.

 I have to agree with Hanso.  Uninspired.

I do agree that the scene being shot the other day was likely the post credits bit.  Since those seem to mostly wind up as scenes in other movies eventually, it would let Joss and Kevin off the hook for lying.

 Hulk Smash would be better since we have another actor which could mean another reboot.

How about Hulk Lives and get a human to play the Hulk rather than a CGI creation.

The quotes I read from Kevin Feige seemed someone skeptical of a Hulk film. He basically said that after 2 films and 2 different tones they still didn't have the return they wanted. He seemed way more optimistic about a Guardians of the Galaxy film

As for Ant-Man I've always thought it would be their next superhero but this official. Kevin Feige recently said they know what their 2nd film of 2014 is but they aren't ready to disclose it yet. So my question is, it's this a guess or is it coming from an official source?

STAY AFTER THE CREDITS OF THE AVENGERS MOVIE folks...it's been confirmed at the premiere last week from the marvel commentators...there is something there.

Wiseguy 4/15/2012 7:14:10 AM

Yeah I think we all know and expect that from Marvel ever since IM

My question is, is what they saw at the premiere what we're going to see since the rumored after credits scene was just shot. Or was the just shot scene something else entirely. 18 days and 14 hours, come on baby

I like "Return of the Monster" - maybe not the best title but the idea would make sense... with the Hulk getting more under control the next story line would be him taking a step back. He needs to get our of control. Maybe go gray trying to cure himself?

Ant-Man? I still have no interest in this idea for the current Marvel movie universe. I know he was in the original story line, but his concept works better in a comic or a cartoon.

I'd rather see the Panther or someone else.

I honestly doubt there will be another crack at a Hulk movie especially since they have the TV show produced by Del Toro in the works. As much as I love the Hulk on the big screen, he hasn't had the success they wanted. Perhaps TV is a better format for the character.

 What? No Ghost Rider 3?! <chortle>
