Kevin Feige Talks 10 Years of Marvel Movies

31 December 2009 11:27 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

As the first decade of the new millennium comes to an end, we look back at the era that saw our favorite comic book heroes from the house of Stan Lee making the leap from the page to the silver screen.

To bring us a first-hand perspective of the Marvel movie experience, President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige recounted the hard work and big payoffs that catapulted Marvel (and comic book movies on the whole) to the cinematic power horse it is today.

 

I’ve taken the liberty of cutting down Feige’s quotes to Marvel News down into some smaller snippets that should help spark fond feelings of comic book movie nostalgia:

Trying to Break the “Marvel Curse”

I started at Marvel proper in August 2000; I had been working as an associate producer on “X-Men” in 1998. We worked on that for almost three years. Back in those days there was the “Marvel Curse. »

Roth Wants To Resurrect The Hulk

31 December 2009 4:16 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

British actor Tim Roth is urging movie bosses to resurrect The Incredible Hulk for a sequel, because he would love to reprise his role for a second installment in the comic book blockbuster franchise.

Roth tackled Edward Norton as the green giant in the 2008 movie, playing villain Emil Blonsky.

The star admits he has been contracted for three Hulk movies, and hopes Hollywood executives pick up the option for a sequel as he had so much fun shooting the action picture.

He tells MTV.com, "I don’t know if they want to bring (my character) back, but I told them I’m absolutely game for it. It would be so much fun to do it again. I’m in it for three.

"I had the best time ever with that one - more fun on set than anybody. I did it purely for my kids, so my boys can laugh at their dad and have fun with it." »

The "Abomination" May Return in One or More Marvel Movies

31 December 2009 12:55 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Director Louis Leterrier's The Incredible Hulk may not have been the smash hit that its Marvel Studios cousin Iron Man turned out to be, but it still made a hefty profit at the box office. And with both of the Hulk's antagonists — Gen. "Thunderbolt" Ross (played by William Hurt) and Emil "Abomination" Blonsky (Tim Roth) — still alive and well at the end of the movie, the stage is set for a sequel.

Leterrier has gone on the record as saying he would be interested in revisiting the Hulk, whether in a sequel or in The Avengers movie, a team that the Hulk helped create in the Marvel comic books. Also, Edward Norton, who portrayed Bruce Banner, the man who becomes the Hulk, has expressed interest in reprising the role, assuming he has the time in his schedule.

In the most recent Hulk news, Roth told MTV that he has »

Tim Roth Is 'Absolutely Game' For A Return In 'Incredible Hulk' Sequel Or Other Marvel Movies

30 December 2009 1:09 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

From Splash Page: While 2008's "Incredible Hulk" only performed marginally better at the box office than its 2003 counterpart, many fans praised Louis Leterrier's take on Marvel's green goliath as a significant upgrade from Ang Lee's earlier film. One of the most notable improvements, according to many critics, was the addition of award-winning actor Tim Roth as the villainous soldier Emil Blonsky opposite Edward Norton's scientist-on-the-run Bruce Banner.

Even though [Spoiler Alert] Roth's character was on the receiving end of a Hulk beatdown at the end of the film (despite becoming the mutated behemoth Abomination), the door was left wide open for a potential return. And as Hulk fans know, Blonsky is a regular presence among Hulk's rogues.

While chatting with Roth recently about "Lie to Me," the Fox television series in which he plays a human lie-detector of sorts, I managed to slip in a few questions about his »

Socking It To Santa: Comic Book Christmas Stockings

24 December 2009 9:01 AM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

The holiday season inspires many wonderful novelty items for decorating one's house, but aside from tree ornaments and wrapping paper, there aren't many outlets for comic book stars to shine.

That's why when it comes to hanging out for the holidays, stockings are an enjoyable way to capitalize on one's super hero movie fandom without getting too tacky.

Here's a rundown of a few appropriate choices for the season, along with a look at the cinematic future of each franchise. (Image courtesy of The Deadpool Bugle and artist Paco Medina.)

Iron Man

Shellhead's heavy-duty armor plating may not seem like a logical choice for a typically plushy decoration, but movie and comic fans alike can't resist the charm of an Iron Man novelty. This summer's "Iron Man 2" will likely have a positive effect on next winter's stocking offerings – if folks can reconcile War Machine with "peace on earth and good will toward super villains. »

Marvel writers excited about arrival of 'shared universe' in Avengers movie

22 December 2009 11:27 AM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

While we have seen superhero teams on screen before in X-Men and Fantastic Four, we've not yet seen several heroes crossing over from their own films into one ensemble movie.

This will happen in The Avengers, the 2012 Marvel Studios team-up movie bringing together Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth's Thor, Captain America, Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury and possibly Hawkeye, Edward Norton's Hulk, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and others.

Staff at Marvel Comics are excited to see how the concept of uniting all those characters will work on the big screen.

In an interview with Newsarama, several of them have given their views on the Avengers film.

Writer Brian Michael Bendis, who for five years has been the 'architect' of the Avengers comic, is part of the creative committee that consults on movies in development at Marvel Studios, including The Avengers.

He told Newsarama: »

DVD Playhouse--December 2009

DVD Playhouse—December 2009

By

Allen Gardner

Public Enemies (Universal) Johnny Depp portrays legendary Depression-era bank robber John Dillinger in co- writer/director Michael Mann’s take on America’s first “Public Enemy Number One.” Like many big studio releases today, Public Enemies has it all: A-list talent before and behind the camera, but lacks a heart or soul that allows its audience to connect with it. Film plays out like a “true crime” TV show with re-enactments of famous events cast with top actors and shot by the best technicians in the business, with little, if any, character or story development to hold it together in between. A real disappointment from one of our finest filmmakers and finest actors. The lone standout: the great character actor Stephen Lang as a hard-eyed lawman who’s seen a lot, but manages to retain a tiny piece of his heart. For a better take on the same subject, »

Seven ridiculous film plots, five unlikely weapons and the five scariest children in film

Seven Ridiculous Film Plots

1 Star Trek

Physicists could have a quantum field day with the rebooted space opera's loose interpretations of black holes, supernovas, "red matter", etc – but relax, it's only sci-fi! Harder to swallow was the bit when Kirk was exiled to a barren, snowy planet, but luckily landed right outside the cave of Leonard Nimoy. Or the fact that Kirk and Spock could two-handedly overpower a 24th-century Romulan spaceship like it was a 60s Bond movie. Didn't those guys invent security cameras yet?

2 The Invention Of Lying

Ricky Gervais told us this was set in a world where nobody knew how to lie. He lied. In a lie-free world, there'd be no corrupt cops like Ed Norton's. There'd be no corruption. Or secrecy, bribery, exaggeration, artifice, or, in fact, crime. There'd be no cops at all, »

Yes Man (Peyton Reed, 2008)

10am, 8pm, Sky Movies Premiere

Remember Jim Carrey in Liar, Liar, where he forces himself to tell the truth for 24 hours? Well, here Jim Carrey forces himself to answer yes to any request, for a year. Which is upping the ante somewhat, but doesn't make it a better film. This is a return to the manic, gurning, not-very-funny Carrey, as if The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine etc hadn't happened. Just say no.

The Golden Compass (Chris Weitz, 2007)

Keri Loves Her Coffee Talk in NYC

17 December 2009 1:30 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Keri Russell put on her comfy coat yesterday when she headed out to grab a coffee in NYC. She took her cup to go, then sat outside the cafe to make a quick call on her BlackBerry. It's been a low-key few months for the actress, as she spent time at home in Brooklyn with her leading men River and Shane. Soon she'll be hitting the red carpet, though, when it's time to promote Leaves of Grass with Ed Norton - check out that film's trailer - and Extraordinary Measures, formerly known as Crowley, with Harrison Ford before they hit the big screen soon.

MTV Splash Page Makes A Holiday Wish For These Armors In 'Iron Man 2'

16 December 2009 11:30 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

From Splash Page: Tony Stark has donned plenty of armors that would be better left out of "Iron Man 2" and any subsequent Marvel films in favor of giving his classic look (and War Machine) a bigger spotlight.

War Machine, however, is just one of Tony Stark's technical masterpieces that have appeared over the course of Iron Man's half century in comics. Here are five others that would shake up theaters in an Iron Man film.

Hulkbuster Armor

If Robert Downey Jr. ever confronts Edward Norton on-screen in a Marvel film, expect there to be a long pause with some loud metallic stomping noises before the camera pans up to reveal the most intimidating armor set Tony's ever put on. Last used by Stark to confront the Hulk during his post-"World War Hulk" rage, he tricked it out with adamantium needles capable of injecting the big green guy with nanites. »

U.S. financier opens Oz outpost

16 December 2009 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Follow the money is a mantra for the entertainment industry, and Will French, co-founder and president of tax credit-based financing leader Film Production Capital, is a man who does just that.

French -- who landed at the American Film Market earlier this year with more than $50 million available for the financing and acquisition of tax incentives for productions filming in states around the country -- is going Down Under.

The financier is opening an outpost in Australia to capitalize on growing government tax incentives available there.

French is finalizing plans for a syndicate of U.S. and Australian banks to provide a credit facility, which Fpc will then use to lend against the territory's producer and location offset programs.

The producer program offers a refundable offset of up to 40% of the Aussie production spend for films with significant Australian content, while the location program is a refundable offset of up »

Alanis Morissette Gets High from Running - and the Occasional Joint

15 December 2009 7:45 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Alanis Morissette struggled with depression her whole life, but recently, she found an effective antidote: running. Morissette, 35, tells Runner's World that "running has made being depressed impossible. If I'm going through something emotional and just go outside for a run, you can rest assured I'll come back with clarity." The Grammy-winning singer, who has run two marathons, tries to live a healthy lifestyle, including eating lots of kale. But she still occasionally indulges "in red wine, and it's fun to have medical marijuana once in a while," she says. "I still party and include a little debauchery." Always an active »

Courtney Love Loses Custody of Frances Bean

14 December 2009 2:39 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Update: A lawyer for Kurt Cobain's mother and sister said this is a private family matter and that no statement would be issued on the reason behind the move.

It's going to be a lonely Christmas for Courtney Love. The ever-troubled rocker has lost legal custody of daughter Frances Bean Cobain, according to documents filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court. It's unclear what prompted the legal switcheroo, though Love's closely watched Facebook page has devolved in recent weeks into rambling, often incomprehensive diatribes on everyone from the trustees of her daughter's trust fund to Edward Norton, Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears, the latter of whom, »

Overture Sets Deal in 'Stone'

I've sort of lost track of this project since it was first announced as a possible The Deer Hunter reunion between Robert De and Meryl Streep. A lot has changed since this first announcement. De Niro and Edward Norton remained on board but the supporting actresses were changed for Frances Conroy and Milla Jovovich. Today, John Curran's dramatic-thriller has a confirmed release next year with Overture swooping up domestic rights. - I've sort of lost track of this project since it was first announced as a possible The Deer Hunter reunion between Robert De and Meryl Streep.

Dr: Amy Rice and Alicia Sams' By the People: The Election of Barack Obama

12 December 2009 6:25 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

For the Obama family and for everyone who campaigned or voted for him, By the People is a feel good memory to add to the scrapbook. Considering that this is literally yesterday's news and hasn't yet aged, the Rice-Sams card still managed to carve out an easy watch and make an overly processed in the media road to the presidency, feel somewhat dynamic. - It'll be a bittersweet viewing for plenty of folks who end up watching today's Daily Recommendation, but for the avid docu fan in me, Amy Rice and Alicia Sams' By the People: The Election of Barack Obama had me thinking of a pair of documentary films (Chris Hegedus and Da Pennebaker's The War Room and Robert Drew's Primary) that gave a far more gripping account of the campaign trail.
