Marvel officially announce Avengers movie, and 3 others.

Post by DroothR on Mon May 05, 2008 5:33 pm

Marvel today updated its feature film slate strategy and plans for the next three years, locking in key release windows for its character franchises. In order to focus its attention on maximizing the success of an Iron Man sequel and the launch of Thor in the summer of 2010 and because Marvel believes that the summer is the optimal time to launch a new property, the Company will not release a self produced film in 2009. Marvel plans to launch its 2010 film slate with the release of the sequel, Iron Man 2, on April 30, 2010, followed by the launch of Thor on June 4, 2010. Additionally, Marvel is planting its feature film stakes for summer 2011 with an Avengers-themed summer – a two-picture project which will debut on May 6, 2011 with The First Avenger: Captain America (working title), followed by The Avengers in July 2011.

In summation, Marvel Entertainment currently plans to release no self-financed films in 2009, and then go into a 2-year Avenger-fest.

- April 2010 - Iron Man 2
- June 2010 - Thor
- May 2011 - Captain America
- July 2011 - The Avengers

While not officially greenlit as of yet, Marvel Entertainment are hopefull to add Ant-Man to their pre-Avengers schedule as well.

Expect to hear some casting/creative team names announced by San Diego Comic Con.

THOR CAMEO!!!

Post by Steve Holt on Mon May 05, 2008 7:37 pm

let's hope they do something to fill 2009, maybe some mini-films to promote the movies, starring S.H.I.E.L.D. with camoes from the stars. or maybe get ant-man made.

EDIT: THOR WILL CAMEO IN IRON MAN 2!!!!

I like the movies except I dont know how much I like an ant man movie. There are a lot of other better characters and stories to tell.

I suppose it would be all right special effects wise but I am thinking it could be targeted at youngens and for some reason i keep thinking it along the lines of "Honey i shrunk the kids".

I bet the Avengers will be more like the New Avengers with the popular Wolverine and spidey involved

Others, cant wait.

I'd be really happy if neither were in an Avengers movie. When I think of Avengers it's the big three Cap, Thor and Iron Man along with the classic Avengers characters Hawkeye, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Wasp, Giant-Man/YJ, Quicksilver, Ms Marvel, Hercules and Wonderman.

Me too, I love the early days I read about in the essential Avengers TPB but I still think since the Avengers are not as well known as say the Justice league they will need spidey and wolvie to pull the crowds, its just the marketer in me I guess Wink

I'm thinking the first Cap movie as an introduction to the avengers (with a couple of hints in Ironman & Thor) will be a good way go...I'm not convinced the Avengers are that well known in realms outside nerddom any thoughts....I would think the average joe would know cap, ironman thor but not really any of the others or the name avengers- thoughts?

I agree when I told people at work that Iron Man was good they said "whos that? Is it another comic movie?" So no one will know the others.
Although you could say that the average Joe didnt know the X-men either before the movie came out and they were successful.
On who should play cap I hope neither Matthew nor Brad, both too old. I think they need a relative unknown ala Brendon Rooth who played the latest super man. Know one herd of him but he was cast perfectly.

New information on The First Avenger: Captain America:
Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige revealed today that the Captain America movie will be a period film, set during World War II. I’ve never read any Captain America, but some of my friends who are really into the series have insisted that a WWII period setting would be the only way to do the story justice.

This basically confirms that Marvel will be sticking close to the original origin story which involved Steve Rogers volunteering to be a test subject in Operation: Rebirth, a top-secret defense project for the U.S. Army. Rogers took a Super-Soldier serum which altered his physiology, turning him into a “nearly perfect human being”. Unable to duplicate the process, the United States government turned Rogers into a superhero who served as “both a counter-intelligence agent and a propaganda symbol to counter Nazi Germany’s head of terrorist operations, the Red Skull.”

The First Avenger: Captain America (and not Captain America: The First Avenger, which sounds infinitely better) is scheduled to hit theaters in May 6th 2011, just weeks before Marvel’s superhero team-up film The Avengers hits screens in July. It’s assumed that the film will likely end with a cliffhanger. In the comic series The Avengers discovered Steve Rogers’ body in a block of ice in the North Atlantic years after his supposed death, and were able to revive him. It’s assumed that a similar situation will probably happen to bridge the two movies, especially considering that The Avengers takes place in modern day. But Feige promises that you won’t need to see any of the other films to understand The Avengers:

Marvel will be releasing two direct-to-DVD short movies called "Hulk Vs. Thor" and "Hulk Vs. Wolverine".

Hulk Vs. Thor – It’s gods versus monsters in this epic 45 minute movie! Never have we explored the explosive power of the Hulk like we have in this new film, every major character from the Marvel Thor universe is thrust into battle with this Green Goliath as he brings a new Ragnarok down upon the realm of gods.

Hulk Vs. Wolverine - This dark, violent, smash and slash story was first told in issue 181 of THE INCREDIBLE HULK and the rematches have continued to thrill comic fans ever since. Now Marvel and Lionsgate takes the best of those famous comic book battles and merges them into one heart pounding 33-minute story.

More info and a trailer for "Hulk vs. Wolverine" can be found at Newsarama.com

Didn't want to start a new topic. Marvel has a preview of the upcoming Iron Man animated series. "Iron Man: Armored Adventures" launches Marvel's newly crowned box-office king Tony Stark on to the small screen, and in 2009 the first 26 animated episodes will begin airing on Nicktoons.

In the same way that the Dark Knight was film noir-ish and like Michael Mann's Heat, I actually hope that the Thor and Captain American movies aren't strictly superhero flicks. I reckon Thor would be awesome if it just dealt with Norse mythology first before the Avengers flick; Asgard on the big screen on a LOTR scale epic would be awesome. Whilst i reckon C.America should be gritty in the classic war, Dirty Dozen/Great escape, movie sense. But still mighty excited about the next few years at the cinema!
