Re: what's next for Marvel (movies)?

I'd rather see a Luke Cage/Iron Fist TV series. Maybe they can be part of that Jessica Jones TV show that ABC's been working on.

I'd like to see the second 2014 movie be Ant-Man (finally), introducing Hank and Jan and laying the foundation for Ultron to be a villain in The Avengers 2 (I'd save You-Know-Who for the third movie).

I don't think that's the objective of the Ant Man movie, if Edgar Wright has his way. Ant Man will be pretty offbeat much as Scotty Pilgrim and Shaun of the Dead were.

Ant Man production history...

Yeah, but that was before the MCU really got going. Plans can change.

True, but he was discussing those plans as recently as last summer.

Thanks for the link. Yeah, I figured an Ant-Man movie would be mostly standalone (as most of the Big Four's intro movies were, for the most part). What I meant with my Ultron comment was more that Ultron might be in the background of Ant-Man, it could just be something that Hank is working on. They can still do something like that in Ant-Man and then have Ultron be activated in The Avengers 2.

Whatever they end up doing, it does sound like the movie's getting closer and closer to happening, so that's cool.

I recall him saying that it wouldn't be an out and out comedy like those films though. That it would be an action adventure with comedic elements.

Just like the first Iron Man movie barely touched upon Stark's alcoholism, it's wrong to extract the wife beating from the complete Antman story.

That could only work if they go retro with it. Big afro and big kung fu mysticism.

Re: what's next for Marvel (movies)?

As an aside, I'm curious. Is Chris Evans still under contract from Fox for a second Fantastic Four sequel? Typically when actors sign contracts for franchise films, they usually get roped into a three/four movie deal. He's reportedly got a 9 picture deal with Marvel for the Captain America role. Although at this point, Fox may just opt for another reboot like Sony did with Spider-Man.

Ah, screw them. Seriously.

Unlike Siegel and Shuster, who were basically a couple of kids with no business savvy, Jack Kirby was a middle aged man with a twenty year career in comics when he went to work for hire at Marvel. He knew exactly what his contract terms were, having worked in the industry for his entire adult life at that point. Furthermore, he took no financial risk of his own in doing so (he got paid whether a book sold or bombed, unlike the publisher who took the actual risk) and he was more than willing to jump from company to company (Timely, Fawcett, DC, Harvey, Atlas, DC, Marvel) , depending on who offered him the best deal at the time. So you can't even factor in a "loyalty" argument. In fact, at one point in the 50s, he and Simon started their own company, which is further evidence that man was no babe in the woods who didn't realize what rights he was signing away.

Furthermore, when Joe Simon was in litigation with Marvel over Captain America in the late sixties, Kirby took Marvel's side.

Finally, even if Kirby deserved more remuneration for the characters, that doesn't mean his kids, who had nothing to do with his work, do.
I didn't mean any litigation at all. Of course they're under no obligation. I just think it'd be the decent thing to do. "Hey, our movie just made a shit-ton of money, why don't we throw a little bit toward the guy's family?"

But it doesn't matter; it'll never happen.

How about, at the very least, Disney lets the people in the Marvel offices have some more bathrooms?

Re: what's next for Marvel (movies)?

My dream project would be to do a Ka-Zar movie.

I'm wondering if eventually it's going to be TOO big. I mean, presumably the actors who are in Avengers at the moment aren't going to do it forever. So then do they switch out some of the characters? It'll probably be okay if they keep some of the heavy hitters but are people going to have the same excitement for an Avengers film with a second-string line up?

Edgar Wright teases AICN today on the status of his Ant Man movie.

Edit:

According to this article it came from Wright's Twitter account. Hopefully this means in a year or two Hank Pym will be beating his wife on the big screen in real 3D!
