I just can't see how this could be anything but awesome.


I'm a bit iffy on Aronofsky doing a comic-book movie. But if Fox lets him have more creative control than, say, Gavin Hood or Brett Ratner, it can only be a good thing.

And speaking of comic book films, Walt Disney Pictures bought the distribution rights for The Avengers and Iron Man 3 (skedded for a May 3, 2013 release) from Paramount Pictures, but ePix will have pay TV rights for the former. Paramount will get reimbursed $115M for the films upon their release, even more depending on how well they do. Paramount will still have distribution rights to the first two Iron Man films, plus Thor and Captain America.

BURBANK, Calif. – October 18, 2010 – The Walt Disney Studios, Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios announced they have reached an agreement under which Paramount will transfer its worldwide marketing and distribution rights to Disney for Marvel Studios’ The Avengers and Iron Man 3. Paramount will remain the worldwide distributor of the upcoming films, Thor and Captain America, as well as the previously released Iron Man and Iron Man 2.

Under terms of the new deal, Disney will pay Paramount $115 million for the transfer of the distribution rights to Iron Man 3 and The Avengers to be paid on the theatrical release dates. These monies will serve as a minimum guarantee against the distribution fees.

“In completing this agreement, Disney will now assume worldwide marketing and distribution of The Avengers and Iron Man 3 and leverage these two highly-anticipated films across the multiple global platforms of The Walt Disney Company,” said Rich Ross, Chairman of The Walt Disney Studios. “We appreciate the tremendous momentum that Paramount established with these iconic Marvel characters and look forward to propelling the brand even further in the coming years.”

“Five years ago, when Paramount and Marvel made our initial deal, both our businesses were in very different places,” said Brad Grey, Chairman & CEO of Paramount Pictures. “We are grateful for the partnership we have had with the terrific Marvel team over these years and proud of the work we have done together. Today, this new agreement is the right deal for Paramount, for Marvel and for Disney. We look forward to working together on Thor and Captain America, and we wish Disney and Marvel the utmost success, in what we know will be a very productive and wide-ranging partnership.”

"Paramount has been a wonderful partner in helping Marvel Studios bring our characters to the big screen," said Alan Fine, Office of the President, Marvel Worldwide, Inc. "This agreement makes sense now that Marvel is part of The Walt Disney Company."

Paramount will release Marvel Entertainment’s Thor and Captain America worldwide beginning on May 6 and July 22 of 2011, respectively. The Avengers will be licensed to Epix under Paramount’s existing pay television arrangement.

UPDATE: GUILLERMO DEL TORO AND DAVID EICK ("BATTLESTAR GALACTICA") WILL DEVELOP THE SERIES FOR ABC WITH A FALL 2012 LAUNCH DATE (right after "The Avengers" movie comes out in July): http://www.deadline.com/2010/11/guillermo-del-toro-and-david-eick-to-create-new-hulk-television-series-for-abc/. :D
Details of the premise are sketchy but I hear that the series will follow an origin story... Unlike the two Hulk movies, in which the monster was a pure CGI creation, the series will employ a mixture of prosthetics, puppetry and CGI. Del Toro and Eick will break the story for the pilot script together, sharing story and created by credit. Eick will write the script, with del Toro attached to direct subject to his availability. Del Toro will also oversee the designing of the Hulk character, which is expected to draw on previous comic book incarnations, as well as the original 1978-82 Incredible Hulk TV series, with a few wild tweaks on the old look... "I have always been attracted at the combination of comic book heroics and monsters, Jack Kirby's Demon or Kamandi or DC's Deadman or Marvel's Dr. Strange, Morbius, Metamorpho, Mike Mignola's Hellboy, etc," Del Toro said. He said that The Hulk has been at the top of his list and he first pursued it as a feature film around the time of the 2002 release of Blade II, which he directed. Del Toro added that, with partner Eick "we coalesced a respectful but powerful way of retelling the Banner/Hulk story in a fresh way."

Thor trailer is up and online. It's basically the same footage that was leaked last summer although there are some additional shots. Hopeful.

McWeeney is pretty well plugged into Marvel Films. I'm willing to bet that is a fairly accurate list of the same names they are looking at. Can I see Wright directing Iron Man 3? Oh hell yes. Do I see it? I don't know. He is already working for them on Ant-Man, so there is a relationship that exists. Who knows?

The vague possibility of Edgar Wright directing Iron Man 3 makes me suddenly care about Iron Man again.

I know this is a movie thread, but I've got to ask: Anyone else pick up the Marvel pinball tables on Xbox Live or the PlayStation network? 4 all-new tables for $10 (Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, Blade) and they're awesome.

Based on Favreau's stated reasons for leaving the project, I think any established director who takes the job is a chump. I sincerely hope Wright stays away (there are far more interesting films he could make instead; he shouldn't do any kind of franchise picture unless he's given creative free reign). Marvel will never pony up the kind of bread necessary for a Peter Berg-style Iron Man flick. Frankly, the only guy on the list who makes much sense to me is Shane Black. He could easily match the tone of the previous movies, and he and Downey already have a working relationship. Plus, he's inexperienced enough as a director that putting up with the total lack of creative autonomy might be worth the opportunity at career advancement (presuming he wants to direct more).

Marvel needs to tread carefully. If it's accurate that Downey has final say over who directs the picture, he could easily use that power to release himself from a third installment altogether if he doesn't like what's happening with Iron Man or even the Avengers flick. If Downey were to leave, it's difficult to imagine the series surviving.

Shane Black for sure: the man would be a perfect fit for the material.

I wouldn't be surprised if Joss Wheadon takes control however, assuming he and Downey get along and The Avengers turns out to be a good experience. I'd imagine he'd be happy to follow up on anything he sets up in his film, what better way than taking control of the main man of the Marvel Film Universe?

I have a brilliant idea. Just let it go. I think there was enough uncomfortable wedging of Avengers 2 building blocks up Iron Man 2's arse as to suitably build up that uber-feature.

Let Thor and Captain America finish the job.

From what I've heard, RDJ and Joss Whedon are getting along just fine. RDJ was all smiles during the Avengers announcement at Comic-Con with the entire cast. If he and Whedon are at odds with each other, they're keeping it under wraps really well.

It's not bad, but I am still leary of this one. It might just be the best cast of any of the X-Men films, and I am happy that there is no Wolverine in sight, but the rapid fire manner in which this film has been produced leaves me leary.

I like James McAvoy, but I don't know if I necessarily see him growing up to be Patrick Stewart the same way I can easily see Michael Fassbender growing up to be Ian McKellen.

I mean, he could still be great, I just don't see it. I want him to blow me away. Basically, let's see a trailer, my curiosity's killing me.

A little more info, w/ a few new pics.

Kevin Bacon on Shaw:

You don’t see much [of his backstory] in the movie, but he’s kind of a self-made man. He lost his father as a young man, made his first million by the time he was 30 and first billion by time he was 40. He’s a very powerful billionaire and also, as it turns out, a mutant. He’s the leader of the Hellfire Club, which is a nightclub for the rich and extremely powerful. And he has a plot to take over the world, so that’s really fun. He’s incredibly good at manipulating people and at taking whatever kind of energy or ability they have and using it to his advantage, like if he’s talking to a German, he’s fluent in German. He’s very charming and able to get whatever he wants.

It looks....right. In the (horrible) TV show it was clearly plastic, and the first movie it looked plastic-y, this looks like it's really some uber-secret alloy and in the trailer they show that the shape of it makes the paint job a natural choice!! So far so good, can't wait for it, but honestly, July 22? For Captain Freaking America? Would not a July 4th release be an easy choice?
Thor's looking good, going for the bearded, more Norseman looking Thor, and the action scenes so far look great, hopefully Hopkins can pull off the awesomeness of Odin, and we might have a winner.

Perfect if Marvel had the balls to make an R-rated Iron Man flick, but still nearly perfect at PG-13.

I see his past experience with Downey, and his particular sensibilities to be a perfect fit for what Favreau established in terms of tone. If there's another director out there that would be a better choice than Black, I don't know him.
