'Avengers' are heroes on horizon

14 June 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On the eve of the opening of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Marvel Studios has begun the process of bringing another of its comics to the big screen: the elite superhero team the Avengers.

Zak Penn, who wrote the screenplay for Marvel's upcoming The Incredible Hulk, is slated to pen the live-action adaptation that would be titled The Avengers.

On the other side of town, Warner Bros. Pictures is developing its superhero superteam, Justice League of America, with Kieran Mulroney and Michele Mulroney having submitted a draft adapting the DC Comics series.

While Penn has not begun his screenplay, those who have read the Mulroneys' draft give it a thumbs-up, and a search for directors is about to begin.

One challenge facing the writers is which heroes to include in their scripts.

While the roster for the Avengers has changed since its inception in 1963, growing to include the likes of Spider-Man and X-Men hero Wolverine, the classic iteration of the team consisted of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the diminutive Ant-Man and Wasp. »
