Feige on Marvel future projects

Iron Man will have a new set of armor for his appearance in The Avengers.
Feige writes: "Joss would kill me if I gave anything away, but I will say that the evolution you saw his armor take in IM2 will continue in The Avengers."
• There will be a reference to Thor's original alter-ego in the upcoming film.

Feige writes: "[P]eople looking for a reference to Don Blake in the Thor film will find one."

• With the rights to The Punisher regained, Marvel Studios is working on figuring out the property.
Feige writes: "Punisher's back in house, and various plans are in the works."

• Plans are still underway for an Iron Fist film. A script is currently in development.

Feige writes: "[A] very talented writer is currently working on a draft."

• Feige would love to see more female characters on the big screen and opened up the floor to suggestions. Miss Marvel was the most popular reply, but Feige named one of his own favorites.

Feige writes: "I love Jessica Jones. Good choice!"

• Asking chat members for their advice on who should play Luke Cage, Feige was met with a several suggestions for Isaiah Mustafa, best known for acting in the Old Spice commercials.

Feige writes: "Love the old spice guy!"

• Marvel has no current plans to produce short films with any characters, though they are open to exploring the idea.

Feige writes: "The shorts rumor was just a rumor, but we do like the idea."

• The Iron Fist script is based, in part on the Brian Michael Bendis / Matt Fraction series.

Feige writes: "[T]he movie is definitely inspired by that great run."

Ant-Man is still in development with Edgar Wright attached to the screenplay.

Feige writes: "Edgar was here a few days ago. He's already working on the next draft."

Moon Knight is one character for which a potential adaptation has been discussed at length.

Feige writes: "Moonknight's a challenging, but extremely interesting character. We've been discussing various versions of it for years."

• If you want to see the Thor trailer on the big screen, look for it in theaters beginning on December 17th.

Feige writes: "It should be playing in front of Tron on may screens, but maybe not all of them."

Black Panther is being worked on, but details are few.

Feige writes: "Things are in the works."

Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Cage? Interesting. He's got the look, but can he play a serious role? All I've seen him in are the Old Spice ads and a cameo on Chuck.

Luke Cage. Michael Jai White or has Spawn ruined him from becoming another superhero?

Black Panther. Maybe Chiwetel Ejiofor or Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, although he might be too bulky for the more acrobatic stuff. Djimon Hounsou, might be too old.

Moon Knight. Jeffrey Donovan.

Iron Fist. I would say Ray Park, but I don't think he could carry a movie as the lead. Find another unknown who has screen presence, really knows his Wushu and can act and you got him, otherwise I have no idea.

Ant-Man. Totally should go to Nathan Fillion, I can see him working well with Edgar Wright.

Punisher. I didn't mind Thomas Jane, the movie wasn't that good, but he was ok as Frank Castle. Maybe use Karl Urban for him.

However many times it takes 'em to figure out to make him a villain, not an antihero...

I don't think so, but Michael Jai White would probably be considered too old by the studio. He'd be an awesome pick, though.

I guess safe pick for Iron Fist would be Jason Statham. Although I wonder if he would agree to don the green and yellow spandex.

Re: Feige on Marvel future projects

I remember Ray Park was rumored for the early attempts at making an "Iron Fist" film. I dunno if Marvel Studios would still consider him but I think he would still make an excellent choice for Danny Rand. Not really surprising that we will see Tony don a new armor for "Avengers" and I'd be interested in a "Moon Knight" movie. I just wish they would get the Punisher right. I'd retain Ray Winstone I thought he did a credible job or invite back Thomas Jane. Either one of those actors I thought had a good sense of the role. Maybe have Warren Ellis write the script. That couldn't hurt.

^ Ray Stevenson, not Winstone. Can't see Frank as a short fat cockney. Though he's probably scary enough for the role.

I've already seen the Moon Knight movie. Christopher Nolan's a great director, isn't he?

But, yeah, I would watch the hell out of an Iron Fist or Black Panther movie.

Re: Feige on Marvel future projects

I think Punisher and Moon Knight would make for some kickass TV shows, but only on HBO, Showtime, or Starz. Don't get why its so hard to do a popular Punisher film. I liked both Jane's and Stevenson's Punishers films, though I thought the Jane film had the better story and actors. Stevenson just looked so much like the character and I liked that they used Jigsaw, though I hated how they depicted him and the story blew. Plus, Loony Bin Jim, what a joke.

Would love to see a Black Panther film, a combo of Hudlin/Priests works. As for BP, I don't think Djimon Hounsou is too old, though Idris Elba and the other actors listed by other posters would work as well for me. Regarding Luke Cage, I would like to see Terry Crews or Quinton Rampage Jackson. Back in the day, Ving Rhames would've made a great Cage.

Re: Feige on Marvel future projects

Iron Fist just seems like such an odd character for them to base a movie around. i would think someone like Dr. Strange or Silver Surfer would get a film before him.

Why no mention of Dr. Strange or the Sub-Mariner? Those are the Marvel characters that have the most potential for a movie franchise, because each brings a whole new, fascinating universe with him.

I'd also love to see Warlock, but I know that's just my own bizarre tastes.
