"Ant-Man" Crawling To The Big Screen

19 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige' continues to update the status of the prepping feature adaptation of  Marvel Comics' "Ant-Man", to be directed by Peyton Reed:

"Ant-Man is still going to come out," said Feige. "We start filming this August. Edgar Wright, who I've known for many years, who wrote the draft with Joe Cornish...

"...much of the movie will still be based very much on that draft and the DNA of what Edgar has created up to this point, but Peyton Reed has stepped in...

"Adam McKay, a very good writer is reworking parts of the script - not the entirety of the script, but some of it - and it's going to, we believe, come to life in the best version of'Ant-Man' that we could possibly make.

"Again Ant-Man is a very important character for us. We like that people don't necessarily know what it is, »

Stan Lee cancels Comic-Con plans

24 July 2014 3:09 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Stan Lee won’t be making it to Comic-Con this year.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the otherwise healthy Lee is canceling his appearances after losing his voice due to a case of laryngitis.

Lee created many of Marvel’s most recognizable characters—including Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four—with help from legendary artists like Steve Ditko and the late Jack Kirby. Over the years, his name has become synonymous with the comics industry.

As such, he’s become a staple both on the convention circuit and in superhero flicks—go see a movie with a Marvel character in it »

(EW)

Marvel’s Ant-man hits theaters next summer July 17, 2015 and as this is the week of Comic-Con, Marvel has unveiled the first poster for the film.

If you’re in San Diego, stop by the Marvel Booth (#2329) to pick up this epic concept poster art for Ant-man by Andy Park.

For more on the history of this super hero, read Here.

The film is directed by Peyton Reed (Bring It On) and writer Adam McKay is contributing to the script.

Although the character of Ant-Man is somewhat overshadowed by Spider-Man and the mutants of X-Men he predates all of them and is one of the cornerstones of the ever-expanding Marvel universe. A few months after the debut of the Fantastic Four, the forerunner of Marvel, Atlas comics, published “the Man in the Ant Hill” in Tales to Astonish number 27. The title was frequently the home of invading giant “beasties” and monstrous creatures, »

First Poster For Ant-Man Arrives Online

24 July 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Shorn of Edgar Wright's services, the good ship Ant-Man steams on with a new poster and a strong Comic-Con presence to still the waters of fanboy discontent. This first effort is a big, bold statement of intent from Marvel. If it could speak, it might say: "Here we are, making this movie and it's still got ants in it." Click on the image for a closer look, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. Wright, of course, has been replaced by Peyton Reed, a man better know for his comedies. Time will tell if that genre background is reflected in the first romantic sex comedy of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but you'd have to presume not. Reed, though, is no newbie to this line of work. He spent time developing the original Fantastic Four film at 20th Century Fox before Tim Story took over. He inherits a cast that already includes Paul Rudd, »

Movie News - New Fantastic Four (With Kate Mara) Is Different from Previous Superhero Movies

23 July 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Movie News - The new 'Fantastic Four' will be ''different from other comic book films''. Scriptwriter Simon Kinberg has promised the ambitious reboot of the superhero franchise will be unlike anything fans have seen in previous movies in the genre, such as 'The Avengers' and the 'X-Men' films. He told Latino-Review.com: ''We are hopefully going to be refining the way the people see the 'Fantastic Four' movies. There are so many things we are doing different from the previous film and so many things different from other comic books films.'' The Josh Trank-directed movie will be a stark departure from the critically mauled 2005 and 2007 'Fantastic Four' films which starred Jessica Alba and Chris Evans. The new take will star Kate Mara as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and »

Marvel Guards Its Properties But Isn’t Afraid to Take Chances With Its ‘Galaxy’

23 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kevin Feige should be riddled with doubt.

Each time the president of Marvel Studios has greenlit a movie, he’s been barraged by skeptics. “Iron Man” was considered too obscure. “Captain America” too American. And “Thor” too much of a fantasy figure.

With each movie costing in the neighborhood of $200 million to produce, these questions are certainly warranted. But so far Feige has proved his critics wrong, launching some of Hollywood’s biggest franchises: The nine films Marvel Studios has made since 2008’s “Iron Man” have collectively earned more than $6.4 billion at the worldwide box office.

Now comes the 10th, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” debuting Aug. 1 — along with even more raised eyebrows.

The space-set actioner, which will be promoted at this week’s San Diego Comic-Con, revolves around a ragtag group of otherworldly misfits on the run after stealing an orb whose power threatens the cosmos. It stars Chris Pratt, »

John Boyega as Black Panther?

23 July 2014 7:32 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Expectations of a Black Panther project were upped last month, after Marvel introduced a new multi-part Black Panther character retrospective, starting from his initial intro in 1966, in "Fantastic Four #52" by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, through the present incarnation of the black superhero from the fictional African nation of Wakanda. It provided a quick and tidy education for those of us not familiar with the character's background, and the Marvel universe he belongs to overall; and it also encouraged further speculation that Marvel published a retrospective on the character in anticipation of what might be an announcement of a Black Panther movie or TV project »

'Batman V Superman,' 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' And 'Fantastic Four' To Make Surprise Appearances At Comic-Con

21 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Marvel and DC will go head-to-head at Comic-Con 2014, causing some to theorize that DC and Warner Bros. will unveil a possible Justice League cast lineup.

Batman V Superman Footage

DC’s Justice League movie will be their first shared superhero film, coming out of the recent Superman reboot in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and the upcoming sequel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Last year, Snyder announced the Batman V Superman sequel at the Warner Brothers Comic-Con panel, and fans are anxious to see whether or not Snyder will surprise Comic-Con with another revelation on the Man of Steel sequel.

Rumors, of course, are already running wild about what potential Warner Bros. and DC surprises could be in store for San Diego this week, with many citing footage of Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, at the top of their list. »

Marvel's Kevin Feige explains Namor the Sub-Mariner film rights

21 July 2014 1:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel Studios holds ultimate control over the film rights to Namor the Sub-Mariner.

President Kevin Feige explained that, if a movie were to be released featuring the Atlantean anti-hero, it would be from Marvel.

Rumours have previously placed the film rights to the character in the hands of Universal and Legendary Pictures.

Feige denied that Legendary could release such a film, although the control of rights is not completely clear cut.

"[It's] slightly more complicated than that," he told IGN.

"Let's put it this way - there are entanglements that make it less easy. There are older contracts that still involve other parties that mean we need to work things out before we move forward on it.

"As opposed to an Iron Man or any of the Avengers or any of the other Marvel characters where we could just put them in."

Namor is one of the oldest Marvel Comics characters, »

Sub Mariner Film Rights Have Come Back To Marvel—Mostly Anyway

18 July 2014 10:23 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Marvel Entertainment head man Kevin Feige told IGN that the film rights to their first character, Namor the Sub-Mariner, are back with Marvel once again. Well, almost. There’s a caveat. Read on to find out the full details.

In 1939, Marvel—then known as Timely—published their first super hero story. The main character was called Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner, who was created by Bill Everett. He was the hybrid, half human Prince of Atlantis. Namor was not only the inspiration for Aquaman, his physical appearance also inspired the look of Star Trek’s Mr. Spock. The name Namor is Roman spelled backwards.

Through his long comic and animated cartoon career, the character has never appeared in live action form. Universal Studios held the film rights to Prince Namor for a long time and did nothing with the character, despite the popularity of super hero films these days. That meant »

The Rights To A Namor Movie Are Back At Marvel. Mostly.

18 July 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Fox, Disney and Sony all own Marvel superhero properties. The bulk of the characters are over at Disney, while Sony controls the world of Spider-Man and Fox very tightly holds onto X-Men and Fantastic Four. But the very first Marvel superhero, back from the days when they called themselves Timely, is still not spoken for. That would be Namor the Sub-Mariner, and for the longest time the suggestion was that the rights to the character were over at Universal. But talkative Marvel head Kevin Feige is here to debunk such thoughts. IGN recently sat down with Kevin Feige to talk about whether Marvel and Disney were free to make a Namor movie, and his answer was yes. Basically yes. With a caveat. It.s slightly more complicated than that. Let.s put it this way . there are entanglements that make it less easy. There are older contracts that still involve »

"Guardians Of The Galaxy": 'Ronan The Accuser'

18 July 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ Marvel Comics 'Kree' alien villain 'Ronan The Accuser' (Lee Pace), plus more new footage from Marvel Studios' upcoming comic book adaptation, "Guardians of the Galaxy":

'Ronan the Accuser' is a member of the alien race the 'Kree', debuting in Marvel Comics' "Fantastic Four" (vol. 1) #65 (1967).

The character was created by writer Stan Lee and co-plotter/illustrator Jack Kirby.

Born on the planet 'Hala', capital of the 'Kree Empire' in the 'Greater Magellanic Cloud', Ronan, as an adult, became a member of the 'Accuser Corps' military governors and jurists. 

His rise through the ranks was extraordinary, and he eventually became the third-most powerful being in the Kree Empire. The 'Supreme Intelligence' appointed him 'Supreme Accuser of the Kree Empire', and in this role he is known simply as 'Ronan the Accuser'.

Ronan possesses superhuman strength, endurance, speed and reflexes, enhanced by devices in his suit of full-body exoskeleton armor. »

Marvel Teases Possible 'Guardians of the Galaxy' / 'Avengers' Crossover

18 July 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Guardians of the Galaxy is on the cusp of its release in just three weekends, which means Marvel president and producer Kevin Feige has been out and about promoting this huge sci-fi spectacle. One of the questions on everyone's mind, especially since it was teased that they'd be teaming up with Hulk in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, is when we'll see Star-Lord and his team crossover on the big screen with Marvel's The Avengers.

If the rumors we've recently heard are true, it would have to happen in The Avengers 3. But is that the case?

"Part of the fun of the comics is that could happen. Any character could interact with any other character because they inhabit the same time period and the same universe. And certainly it is the inclusion of Thanos most specifically that is a declaration to audiences who are paying attention that this is connected to those other universes. »

Kevin Feige Talks 'Ant-Man,' 'Namor' and Wolverine

18 July 2014 7:13 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Everyone's getting a pre-Con shot at Kevin Feige as the Marvel Studios head is debuting the Guardians of the Galaxy footage in the UK.

There's been a lot to talk about recently in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (we're only 2 weeks out from Guardians and we've been getting our first looks at Avengers: Age of Ultron), but the most interesting questions and answers have to do with properties in question.

Ant-Man had a director shakeup, we heard rumors of a Namor The Sub-Mariner movie in the works and Hugh Jackman has been saying he'd love to see Wolverine on The Avengers team or fighting the Hulk. These are the questions only the top man can answer, and he did.

From IGN on Namor and Wolverine:

Marvel seeks to deny Supreme Court hearing in Kirby case

17 July 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel Entertainment has requested that the Us Supreme Court deny the petition by the heirs of Jack Kirby.

The company has insisted that the ongoing case over the rights to many of its classic characters does not "remotely merit" a review, according to Deadline.

The Kirby heirs have recently received backing from Hollywood guilds, trademark experts and comics veterans, who filed friend-of-the-court (amici curiae) briefs petitioning that the highest authority of the Us judicial system judge on the case.

The case concerns many of Marvel's best-known characters - including the X-Men, Avengers and Fantastic Four - which Kirby co-created with Stan Lee.

The case hangs on the reading of the ambiguous term 'work for hire' in relation to whether Kirby's family can terminate the rights to the characters.

Marvel claims the situation is such that there is no reason the Supreme Court should take a hearing on the rights case, »
