= It's easy for us to get caught up in the endless photos/videos from the set of The Avengers, but Marvel has a broad slate of standalone superhero movies to worry about. The first two post-Avengers are Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 in the summer 2013. Robert Downey Jr. shared his intentions for Iron Man last month, and today Marvel president Kevin Feige revealed their plans for the Thor sequel to EW: “[Thor 2 will] primarily be the journey of that character, of he and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and how the new dynamic with his father is working out, as well as what are the broader stakes for The Nine Worlds." On that last point, Feige promises the script by Don Payne "take Thor literally to other worlds." Hit the jump for more on The Nine Worlds. Alfheim - Home of the Light Elves (Ljósálfar). Alfheim is a distinct region on the Asgard planetoid. »

He sees dead people! Only this time they’re all cobbled together and brought back to life for Haley Joel Osment’s Frankenstein movie Wake The Dead. The Sixth Sense star is slated to appear in the upcoming horror film as Victor Franklin (get it?), a college student who goes all mad scientist in his attempts to re-animate the deceased. So basically we’re looking at Weekend at Bernie’s 3: Freshman Year. Victor better pray that the varsity calypso band isn’t practicing down the hall from his lab, or that monster is out of there.
If that doesn’t sound spooky/random enough for you, for some reason Slash will be producing the film. It’s been a while since Haley’s last feature film, 2007′s Home of the Giants, though he has both Sassy Pants and Montana Amazon with Alison Brie slated to come out this year. »

Jay Russell (Tuck Everlasting, Ladder 49) has signed on to direct.
