    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. :techman:

    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.

    Oh dear God, they really did, didn't they:

    And sadly, some of the costumes look better than the ones in the current Hollywood blockbuster.

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

    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 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?

    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! :D

    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.

    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. :eek:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
