While everyone’s hoping to find out what the two “mystery” superhero movies in development at Marvel are at Comic-Con in a couple of weeks, confirmation of another Marvel superhero movie has just come to light…sort of.  Deadline reports that Alan Brewer and Steven Goldmann have acquired the rights to comics character The Human Fly and are in the process of developing a feature film based on the character.  There were actually two different characters that carried the Human Fly name in Marvel comics.  One was a villain who was imprinted with a fly’s genetic coding after being left for dead by Spider-Man (that pesky Peter Parker), while the other was a young man whose skeleton was replaced by steel following a car accident.  Hit the jump for more. Deadline’s report doesn’t specify which incarnation of the Human Fly this deal entails, but Goldmann will be directing the feature film. »
