Marvel and Disney Merger Official

31 December 2009 6:08 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

The merger between Disney and Marvel Entertainment was made official today after stockholders gave their approval. Marvel believes the merger will close by the end of the business day today.

Since the merger was announced, comic book fans have been nervous about what this might mean for Marvel properties such as the upcoming The Avengers or First Avenger: Captain America, even after Disney promised the merger would not cause a "Disneyfication" of Marvel's properties.

Meanwhile, it appears that Stan Lee was correct in thinking that Disney will look to explore almost all Marvel characters, including Ant-Man and Doctor Strange. Peripheral characters may even get a test run on a Disney cable network such as Disney Xd before getting a big screen adaptation. "Instead of making a $200 million movie and kind of betting the farm on one character, you can develop a television pilot, a television series," Disney Chief Robert Iger told the Associated Press. »

Secret Identity: Captain America, Conan And More Casting We Want To See In 2010

31 December 2009 6:01 AM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

It's out with the old and in with the new as 2009 transitions into 2010 in just a few short hours. There's no question that it's been a fantastic, crazy and occasionally tumultuous year for comic book fans thanks to film releases like "Watchmen" and compelling news stories regarding "Iron Man 2," "Green Lantern" and others.

But all of that is in the past now. It's time to look forward at what we can expect in the new year. There are still many announced comic book movies and television shows that lack official casting, but with some of these projects heading into production in 2010, it's only a matter of time before the secrets are revealed.

While we all have our own favorite franchises and characters, these are the five heroes and villains I'm dying to see cast in 2010.

Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark and Chris Hemsworth is Thor, but »

Renner: Hawkeye Rumor Off The Mark

30 December 2009 9:15 PM, PST | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

Don’t go fitting Jeremy Renner with purple tights just yet. It appears the Hurt Locker actor is no sure thing to play Hawkeye, the master marksman of Marvel Comics' 'Avengers' universe.

Just a few weeks ago, we reported Renner was a leading candidate to play the character, who would likely make his debut in the upcoming Thor. According to Renner, he had become friends with Zak Penn, one of the writers for the upcoming Avengers movie, and their conversations occasionally turned to Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye.

"We've become friends over time and [Penn] was thinking maybe Hawkeye could be interesting. He sounds like an interesting character," Renner had told Empire.

In a recent interview with Movieline, Renner didn’t necessarily double-back on all the talk connecting him to Hawkeye, but made clear he is not officially on-board. He also said the character is not a lock to appear in 2011’s Thor, »

Jeremy Renner Claims “No Truth” In Hawkeye Rumors

30 December 2009 5:51 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Hurt Locker is one of the best movies of 2009 and its star, Jeremy Renner, has a bright future ahead of him. For us comic book movie fans, we hope that future involves Renner taking on the role of Hawkeye in some of the upcoming films by Marvel Studios.

Last month, the rumor of Renner playing Hawkeye made headlines everywhere following the glowingly positive reception of his performance in The Hurt Locker and an interview with Empire where the actor revealed that he went in to talk to Marvel about Captain America but instead ended up talking the character of Hawkeye. Nothing official came of it (that we know of) but if were to happen, he said that the character would likely appear in Thor and that he’d be honored to be looked at for franchise role such as this.

With this match made in Heaven, many thought it had to be the case. »

Stan Lee on Which Marvel Movies Are Next

30 December 2009 12:32 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Marvel Entertainment has an impressive slate of upcoming movies, with Iron Man 2 opening in 2010, Thor and First Avenger: Captain America in 2011, and The Avengers in 2012. But what movies will Marvel make after that? MTV asked Stan Lee, the 87-year-old co-creator of the comic books, which characters will be next to receive their own movie.

The funny thing is, I think all of them will come to the screen sooner or later because they're always looking for new properties, and Marvel has more than anybody. Doctor Strange I'm sure will be out. You probably know they're working on Ant-Man now. Every one of the Marvel characters, there's somebody working on it. Somebody is trying to put together a story that will work. It's just a matter of time — they can only do so many a year. You don't want to flood the market.

I'm sure [they'll do] The Black Panther, eventually. If »

Stan Lee promises Doctor Strange, Black Panther and Ant-Man films

29 December 2009 4:40 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Marvel's upcoming schedule of comic book movies includes Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America and then culminates in The Avengers in 2012. But what's after that?

There's been some talk of films that may follow. In March, Marvel announced it was planning to hire writers to work on film adaptations of lesser-known characters such as Black Panther, Cable, Doctor Strange, Iron Fist, Nighthawk and Vision.

Stan Lee, Marvel's former president and chairman, who turned 87 yesterday, has now chimed in with his own thoughts of what's coming next.

He told MTV: "The funny thing is, I think all of them will come to the screen sooner or later, because they're always looking for new properties, and Marvel has more than anybody.

"Doctor Strange I'm sure will be out. You probably know they're working on Ant-Man now."

In September, Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead filmmaker Edgar Wright confirmed he was still working on an Ant-Man movie, »

‘Captain America’ Mini-Update

29 December 2009 10:05 AM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

With all the fuss being made about Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2 and Kenneth Branagh’s Thor, where is the first Avenger?

While there has still been no news on casting (don’t they have to do this ahead of time, if only to make sure their leading man is, you know, muscular?) it appears that we do have a start date: Wolfman director Joe Johnston says that he’s gearing up The First Avenger: Captain America for a June 2010 start.

So there’s that. But still — no word on the script. No mention of the team being assembled. And still no Steve Rogers. Come on, Marvel: you’ve gotta give us something we can believe in!

Captain America 'to film in June' as we get closer to casting news

29 December 2009 5:42 AM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

I Previously revealed here on The Geek Files that the script for Captain America was done and filming would begin in summer 2010.

Director Joe Johnston is "readying for a June start", according to a new report on Fangoria.

We must now be getting closer to news on casting, with numerous rumours and suggestions, including a list of contenders here on The Geek Files.

Fans have come up with many names, recently including Ryan McPartlin (pictured below), who reportedly lost out on the lead role in Superman Returns to Brandon Routh and plays Devon 'Captain Awesome' Woodcomb in Chuck.

Meanwhile, Twilight actor Kellan Lutz and Chuck star Zachary Levi have each expressed an interest in the role of the supersoldier.

A popular choice has been Jensen Ackles, who won a poll on The Geek Files. The calls from fans turned into rumours he had been officially approached. But the actor said: »

Is Black Widow a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent in Iron Man 2?

29 December 2009 4:51 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

While the title of this post is certainly no surprise to fans who know anything about the character of Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff), what we weren’t sure on is whether or not she’d be a part of S.H.I.E.L.D. in Iron Man 2 specifically.

From the latest trailer for Iron Man 2, there is a hint that we’ll be seeing Scarlett Johansson’s Russian super spy join the side of good and work for Nick Fury and The Avengers during the story of this movie.

Warning: If you’re not familiar with the history of Black Widow from Marvel Comics, some of this may act as a plot spoiler for Iron Man 2.

 

In the books, Natasha Romanoff is initially an enemy of Iron Man (her first mission in the Us involved her assassinating him) but defects to the United States from the Soviet Union. She starts with freelance work for S.H.I.E.L.D., »

Captain America to shoot in June

29 December 2009 12:12 AM, PST | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

  It’s been all quiet on the First Avenger: Captain America front since Joe Johnston was announced as the film’s director earlier in '09. Well, it’s still sort of hushed out there (those movie bods are probably still finishing up the turkey curry), but Johnston has finally confirmed the shooting date for his Marvel superhero flick. While chatting with Fangoria magazine about his upcoming Wolf Man, the director revealed that he's set to lense the flick in June 2010. Which is earlier than expected considering how...

'Captain America' to Begin Shooting Next Summer

28 December 2009 5:15 PM, PST | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

The Avengers will be here in 2012, and most of the pathways that lead us there have already become familiar to us: Iron Man was a huge hit and its sequel is on the way in May, Hulk has been attempted twice and the more recent version is really underrated, and Thor is shooting soon, overcoming major hurdles to put together what sounds like a very interesting production. That leaves Captain America.

Cap will probably jump in front of cameras soon, if Joe Johnston is to be believed. He's the director of The Wolfman and the man who is lined up for the fourth Avenger origin story. I think the success or failure of Wolfman could tell us a lot about whether or not Johnston stays attached to the project (for a while, it was going to be Nick Cassevetes directing it), but for the time being, he's the guy.

Captain America Begins Filming in June, Green Lantern Hires Oscar-Winning Crew

28 December 2009 12:44 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

As today is a slow news day, I thought I'd pass along a couple small superhero film tidbits. Fangoria has learned that Joe Johnston is readying The First Avenger: Captain America for a June 2010 start. Sounds like we'll begin hearing casting news shortly. Meanwhile, there might not have been any recent casting developments for Warner Bros' adaptation of Green Lantern, but SuperheroHype has learned some of the Oscar-winning crew hired for the production: Cinematographer Dion Beebe (Memoirs of a Geisha, Chicago, Equilibrium, Collateral) Production designer Grant Major and costume designer Ngila Dickson (Lord of the Rings trilogy) Art director François Audouy (Avatar, I Am Legend, Watchmen, Transformers, the Spider-Man" trilogy) Sounds like the team is really shaping up. »

Buzz Break: United Again

· Well hey, here's a new piece of key art advertising the just-dated second season of Showtime's United States of Tara (which will premiere March 22). Click for bigger.

· Joe Johnston is readying Captain America for a hopeful June start. (Between that, The Hobbit, and Spider-Man 4, it's going to be a crowded summer for shooting heavy FX tentpoles.)

· VH1's list of the most shocking music moments sadly does not include sister station MTV forsaking music altogether.

· Demi Moore may claim that her hip wasn't airbrushed away on the cover of W, but the Korean version of the magazine appears to have digitally reinserted it.

· Thor's Chris Hemsworth and his brother, Miley Cyrus beau Liam, got into an altercation a while back at a nightclub, and are now famous enough for it to be featured on TMZ. Congrats, boys! »

Is Captain America on His Way?

28 December 2009 10:28 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Whether or not the Iron Man 2 clues are hinting at an appearance by Captain America remains to be seen, but we do now have confirmation that filming on The First Avenger: Captain America will start in June -- or at least, that's the plan. In an interview with Fangoria, director Joe Johnston, spoke about his work on the upcoming film The Wolfman. But what's really noteworthy, is where he was speaking from. “By the time I got on a plane and arrived, it was three,” recalls Johnston, speaking from the art department of The First Avenger: Captain America, which he’s readying for a June start. “But at that point, what kind of difference can a week make?” Not much else about the film is known as of yet, but this news is sure to get some Marvel fans talking.

The First Avenger: Captain America Begins Filming in June

28 December 2009 9:04 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In an interview with The Wolfman director Joe Johnston, Fangoria reports that his next film, The First Avenger: Captain America is set to go in front of cameras in June.  That’s not too surprising when you consider the film has a target release date of July 22, 2011.  According to Fangoria, Johnston is currently meeting with the art department.  I hope they spend an entire day mocking Rob Liefeld’s illustration of Captain America.

There’s also some news about Martin Campbell’s adaptation of Green Lantern so hit the jump to learn about some of the great production crew who are on board.

SuperHeroHype reports that Green Lantern will have some Oscar-winners in its roster when it comes to the behind-the-camera work.  First up, you have cinematographer Dion Beebe (Oscar-winner for Memoirs of a Geisha).  Then you got production designer Grant Major and costume designer Ngila Dickson who both won »

Captain America to Begin Filming in June

28 December 2009 7:59 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

There are few characters that solicit emotion like the venerable Captain America.

His death last year was profound. It struck a cord in all “Cappy” fans that had a lasting impression – that is until he “returned” to once again fight those that would challenge liberty and freedom.

News on the celluloid/digital version of everyone’s favorite shield-wielding, flag-bolstering hero recently is also very popular. Production on The First Avenger: Captain America starts in June, 2010. It’s reasonable to think that casting should follow soon thereafter providing fuel to the always-popular casting discussion that ensues anytime news like this surfaces.

 

One has to also wonder – will there be enough time to not only prepare a solid story and strong cast, but to concoct a solid rapport between content and cast?

To date, there’s been literally nothing concrete on who will don the blue halfmask and wield the shield.

Perhaps it’s a good thing. »
