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.
I thought they were rebooting that series anyways?

The news (as of last week) was that Chronicle director Josh Trank was working on a Fantastic Four reboot. But it's still in very early developement.

Beyond that, the problem is that Fox and Sony have the rest of Marvel's "big guns" tied up: FF (and the Silver Surfer) X-men, Daredevil, Spidey.
Too bad the studios wouldn't want to loan out their characters for a fee or a share of the profits or something.

As cool as it was to see Cap, Iron Man, Hulk and Thor on screen together, just imagine how absolutely mindblowing it would be to see Spidey or Hugh Jackman's Wolverine pop up as well.

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!

Oops. I had completely forgotten about this thread when I posted this in the Avengers movie thread. Oh well. I guess it has relevence there to.

I really hope they don't go the wife-beater route. That was an abberation for the character that wasn't even in the script for the original issue that the incident appeared in.

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

I was brainstorming with a friend, and since a standalone Hulk film would be difficult to pull off, we'd like to see a Hulk Vs Wolverine, or Hulk Vs The Thing, film. both of which had been done in comics. Obviously, unless those rights revert to Marvel, we'll never see either of those crossovers.

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

Here is the second bit of info that I've posted both here and in the main thread in the same day...

The reveal of
in Avengers may lead into a Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

More on the GotG possibility and Marvel Cosmic in general.

Not sure how you could stretch that into a two hour movie though. There's only so many times you can watch the same two people fight, and even Hulk would eventually clue in that he was fighting one of the good guys.

Unless you have him under some evil influence the entire time or something.

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

I have got a title for what I want to see - HULK SMASH!!!!

Yes, that is kind of a cheesy title for a movie. But it would promise people they would get what they want.

Hulk Smash is not a bad title. In fact I quite like it. It's certainly better than Batman Forever, Batman Begins and Avengers Assemble as far as cheesy titles go.

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

Thanks! I actually love the idea. Kids who loved the Hulk in The Avengers would talk to all their friends about it on the playground just based on the title!

I'm a guy who says "Hulk smash" at least once a day and has been since I was seven years old. My two year old son roars like the Hulk and screams "Hulk smash, graaahr!" damn near every day as well. You can kinda see why that title would appeal to me.

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

I go on about it too.

but have you read the book where it happened?

Hank was in the middle of a super villain rant about how the Avengers would love him and invite him back if he defeated, SAVED THEM from a giant supervillian robot he had invented to "all but nearly" destroy the Avengers, which is when Janet tries to explain to him that he's batshit and should take a chill pill... So he slaps her.

Once.

Janet Van Dyne is professionally beaten up for a living, by gods, monsters, robots, mutants and aliens.

I mean sure it's a betrayal, she trusted him not to be a crazy asshole, but Janet was slapped once by a crazy person in the middle of a pinky and the brain scheme to become leader of the Avengers and probably next the World, I don't think that really the audience is taking the big picture into account here.

A giant fucking killer robot sent out to kill.

However.

It you want to talk about the Ultimate Universe?

Yup, that's your standard asshole laying into some one smaller than he is to feel powerful when he is clearly aware that he is not. Text book.

Which is why I cheered when Captain America stood on his face.
