Marvel Comics Thread
 
Iron Man:

I know this has it's own thread, but I plan on updating these two topics indefinitely as comic movies appear to be more of a stable in the film industry. Eventually I'll simply make a Comic Movie News Thread but I'm a freak about organization. Anyway, Iron Man as finished filming a little while ago which gives them close to a year of post-production. They closed filming in Vegas; though this isn't a hint to the film's story (= the ending may not be set in Vegas). Terrance Howard will play James Rhodes in case some of you didn't know. Rhodes is the civilian identity of War Machine, though you can bet he'll figure in the sequel with a cliff-hanger introduction at the end of this film.

Iron-Man cast: Terrance Howard-James Rhodes/War Machine, Gwyneth Paltrow-Virginia "Pepper" Potts, Robert Downey Jr.-Tony Stark/Iron Man, Shaun Toub-Yin Sen (he is NOT The Mandarin)

Spidey 4:

I suppose Spidey 3's financial success is attributed to Venom's inclusion and they'll add more recent villains as a result. If this is true, and I love the series so far, this will be the beginning of Spider-Man's spiral into the Batman and Robin effect, increasing an aspect of the last film not knowing it worked in a shot-in-the-dark sense. Sam Raimi also expressed ideas of using The Vulture or Electro (more classic villains). I doubt he'll actually have anything to do with Spidey 4. JK Simmons, Bryce Howard, and Dylan Baker (Conners/The Lizard) will return with new leads for Peter Parker and Mary Jane, I'm thinking.

More to come.

Rhodes could simply get his own spinoff.

Kalyx triaD 06-26-2007 09:14 PM

Something about War Machine I liked better than Iron Man, he seems so ready to battle.

Kane Knight 06-26-2007 11:36 PM

Negores like to fight.

Blitz 06-26-2007 11:39 PM

Was there not supposed to be an Iron Fist movie? What happened there?

diothoir 06-26-2007 11:51 PM

Robert Downey Jr looks a bit like a yuppie Jack Sparrow there. :$

Kane Knight 06-26-2007 11:52 PM

You're right.

diothoir 06-26-2007 11:59 PM

RUM...BUY RUM

Ray Park was pegged to be the Immortal Iron Fist, but after his casting was announced (a good 4 years ago) nothing else was heard.

Yeah I remember that. I thought I'd heard something about it recently tho.

alvarado52 06-27-2007 12:48 AM

The Vulture. Yea, that'll go over well in movies. Dude wasnt even halfway decent in the fuckin comics. Raimi needs to read more books on Spidey other than the Sinister Six saga.

Why?

Mr Regal 06-27-2007 09:24 AM

Why not?

Kane Knight 06-27-2007 09:32 AM

That's a piss=poor reason

Luke Cage:

They're still doing it. Tyrese is still the top man to star even though he ain't sign a bloody thing. John Singleton's set to direct.

Kane Knight 07-04-2007 11:32 AM

How about Iron Fist? Anything on that?

Kalyx triaD 07-04-2007 02:40 PM

I afraid to say it may have fallen into development Hell.

Kane Knight 07-04-2007 07:42 PM

Sucks. He was one of those niche heroes I dug.

SWEET CHRISTMAS!

Joey Slugs 07-05-2007 05:16 PM

Don't forget the addition of Sam Jackson as Nic Fury in Iron Man.

Reavant 07-05-2007 05:51 PM

im all for black actors so dont get me wrong but why is Nick Fury being played by sam jackson and why was the green mile guy the kingpin?

Joey Slugs 07-05-2007 05:58 PM

Sam Jackson is playing Fury because in the "Ultimates" universe... Sam Jackson literally is Nick Fury. Marvel is paying him for his likeness...

Reavant 07-05-2007 07:40 PM

oh... my bad ... i never followed the ultimates in terms of the xmen that much... just spiderman.

Reavant 07-05-2007 07:41 PM

So was that the same deal with the kingpin then?

Lock Jaw 07-05-2007 09:40 PM

No, Kingpin they just figured that people would be more scared of a large black man than a fat white guy. Or so my theory goes.

Things been quiet on the Marvel side of things, but straight from the 'Con...

Silver Surfer:

His spin-off film will pick up where FF2 left off, and explain things only hinted at in the movie. We'll see his origin, as well as what he's doing currently. There seems to be hint that a better (or atleast alternate) presentation of Galactus will be in the movie. The few Surfer comics out display pretty wild visuals of the galaxy; how much is this movie gonna cost, I wonder...

Iron Man:

Jon Favreau came to Comic Con with 4mins of footage from Iron Man. Details of the footage had some scenes of Stark building variations of his suit, and ended with Iron Man facing off against 2 F-14s in the sky. Aside from that shot, says the director, most of the action will be practical effects. Stan Winston's studio will be handling the practical stuff, you know... the Terminator guys?

Should be interesting.

Kalyx triaD 07-28-2007 06:21 PM

Spectacular Spider-Man:

Its gonna be a cool cartoon.

Kalyx triaD 08-09-2007 06:46 PM

Thor:

Matthew Vaughn may or may not direct. He's the one who was gonna take over X3 from Bryan Singer way back when. He did Stardust and some other stuff.

Punisher 2:

The second Punisher moves ahead with a new lead (Ray Stevenson) and a direction toward a grittier story. Frank castle faces comic villain Jigsaw in this one. I don't see what was wrong with Thomas jane's work but whatever.

Skippord 08-09-2007 08:14 PM

Thomas Jane quit

G 08-10-2007 08:27 PM

so is there not going to be a xmen 4 with the last one called the last stand?

Kalyx triaD 08-11-2007 12:02 AM

You have seen the ending to X3? There's enough characters and tales from the books to warrent 10 more movies.

"Other stuff" as in Layer Cake. Awesome movie. He also produced Lock,Stock and Snatch.

If there is no 4, it probably has more to do with the cast than the title.

Actually I read after the 3rd one came out that their was plans of doing another X-Men...but instead of focusing on the likes of Cyclops...Storm...and Wolverine, It will instead focus on the younger kids like Iceman, Pyro, Kittie Pryde and people like that.

They mentioned that they would try to get the older people in their doing small cameos but that would be it.

That was the last that I heard about it and that was right after the 3rd hit theaters. Its probably changed by now.

Danny Electric 08-11-2007 07:18 PM

they'll be a fourth just for the reason that it will make money

Reavant 08-11-2007 10:57 PM

isnt there a movie just about wolverine in the works as well?

Fignuts 08-11-2007 11:14 PM

Wolverine and Magneto both have spin-offs in the works. SO it is likely we will not see X4 for a good 5 years. Maybe 10.
