In the Iron Man 3 thread, I mentioned a "Playlist" podcast with info on IM3 that I couldn't access at work. Now that I'm home, I listened to the whole thing, and it turns out that there is all sorts of future Marvel movie info.

The first 20 minutes is about DC movies and JLA. The Marvel stuff begins at 21 minutes.

There is a ton of info and casting speculation and possible spoilers, but in brief...

Any idea how trustworthy all of this is?

^ Like any unconfirmed rumor, take all of the above with a grain of salt.

Marvel is expected to officially announce the rumored Guardians of the Galaxy movie at Comic-Con.

Nah. Guardians will be cool. "Human Fly" sounds dumb.

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

Somewhere in my parents attic back home I have some Human Fly issues. Found them in a $1 box in the 80's. Don't even recall the details of the character.

I'm hoping that Simon Pegg is directed to play the role more straight and not out right comedic. I fully believe that if the Ant-Man character is handled properly(aka not funny) there is potential to change some tunes on him.

I'm a fan of the original Guardians of the Galaxy so color me not fully impressed by the raccoon and tree version of the team.

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

It is simply amazing how hard they work to come up with some stupid choices for their next projects...

Big Hero Six? GAH!

The GOTG movie sounds lame with the use of the 'modern' cast instead of the classic lineup, but then they don't have to get into backstory and world-building for the slack-jawed yokel crowd.

Give us some projects set in the 616 universe already, or at least something other than the Marvel Movie universe.

Projects on my "want list":

Thunderbolts
Darkhawk
Cloak and Dagger (seems like the current project as sputtered out)
Nova
New Warriors

How the heck do you do a Thunderbolts movie? The twist at the end won't have any impact without WAY more movies.

Unless you don't mean the classic, first team? But then that goes against your Guardians comment? Not to mention getting the rights to all of the characters in use, especially Osborn or Juggernaut. But that still doesn't work without way more movies setting things up. Otherwise it's just another generic earth-based team with nothing special to say.

And if THAT team can work, why can't the Guardians?

I think there's loads of potential there, especially since they'll probably be introducing Nova that way, who as you rightfully point out, is awesome. And the new stuff is great and easy enough to explain in a movie. Plus everything I read is saying what a strong script it has.

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

One idea is to have them be the adversary in an Avengers movie. Have them set up as a rival team, probably more popular with the twist revealed midway in the film and they turn into the Masters of Evil and fight the Avengers in the climax.

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

I haven't seen this news posted here yet. Apologies if this info snuck its way into another thread that I missed.

Edgar Wright speaks about Ant-Man at Comic-con...

Wright confirmed he made a test reel, saying, “It’s only a teaser – I shot a little test … but it’s completely unfinished, we shot it two weeks ago.” The crowd cheered as the lights dimmed, and the footage showed a shot of a hallway through a grate, which pulls out to reveal Ant-Man in his tiny form, peering out at two security guards.

He attacks the duo, rapidly grows to full size, and then shrinks back down, an effect that goes on throughout the fight. There’s plenty of Wright-esque humor and style involved – clear even through the green screens and wires, especially when Ant-Man runs across a gun barrel to dislodge one of the guard’s teeth. After kicking proper butt, Ant-Man steps into the elevator the men had been guarding and takes a somewhat comedic pause before pressing the button.

...

Perhaps generating the film’s slogan, he continued, “It is action-packed! Ant-Man will kick your ass one inch at a time.”
Also, Simon Pegg commented on Edgar Wright's upcoming schedule on Twitter...

“Okay, so to be absolutely clear we start shooting World’s End, 10 weeks from now, then @edgarwright will shoot Ant Man next year.”

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

Hmm, if Ant-Man starts shooting next year, Marvel will probably be shooting for a 2015 release. I'm guessing that The Avengers 2 will also probably come out in 2015 (IMO, they should lock up the first weekend of May ASAP). Maybe we'll be getting two movies in an Avengers year instead of just the one we got this time.

EDIT: Whoops, I kinda skipped a year. Next year is 2013, not 2014.

So maybe Marvel will still be releasing three films in 2014 after all. That year's already getting crowded, though. I'm not sure where they'd be able to fit Ant-Man in. Maybe early November? They're already doing that with Thor: The Dark World in 2013, and right now the only movie scheduled for November 2014 is Mockingjay, Part One, on November 21st.

Wow.

Marvel and FOX are in discussions to extend FOX's Daredevil license in exchange for the rights to the Silver Surfer and Galactus reverting back to Marvel.

^^^^
Holy F^*$ing shit!!!
Quite the interesting bit of leverage going on!! Since as the piece notes Phase 2 of Marvel films is going cosmic. Can you imaging having Silver Surfer pop in with GOTG and/or The Avengers as Thanos & Galactus come calling!!!!

This is something to follow.

Oh crap.. they can have Daredevil if they give back Galactus and the Silver Surfer!

Can you imagine the storyline for Avengers 3? Written and directed by Whedon? Prepare to get your mind blown once and for all
