Teen Avengers? Tell me its an adaptation of Young Avengers. Please...

I like how its Wolverine and The X-Men now. Put your most popular foot forward. A new Spider-Man toon will be nice, as long as they don't mess it up too much. Give us a Batman: The Animated Series, not a Spider-man Unlimited (Wich was good, but Jesus Christ was it not Spider-man.)

..Dude. Deathlok movie. I'm all over that. I still don't think Namor can carry his own film. I mean he's a hell of a supporting character, but two hour of nothing but Namor?

Oh good god. The writer for the new hulk did X 3 AND The Last Action Hero? I'm afraid...

Ant-Man sounds cool. Shaun of the Dead was awesome...

I like how the writer of Air Force One is on for Nick Fury. I think Fury has the same potential as Blade, to be a kickass franchise that people don't associate with comic book movies.

Oh dear. Hulk Man is on The Avengers too.

Well,that was interesting.

This is old and talked about in another thread. But I dont remember where that thread is at, so this stays for now.

The Avengers? I thought they couldn't (or wouldn't) make an Avengers movie because the rights to the individual characters (even though I'm pretty sure they're owned by Marvel) wouldn't allow them to combine the different properties in a live action film. Animated is ok (hence the two Ultimate Avengers DVDs/tragedies), but a live action film couldn't be done due to the rights issue. Did something change, or am I just misinformed?

(This of course assumes this is real, but I believe it is. If not, kudos to the faker.)

No, this is real. Like I said, it was in another thread. If I remember which one it was, you would see that it was real. I believe Newsarama or some other site had a link to it at some point.

Now, even though Marvel owns the characters, the film rights are owned by the company, or something to that effect. And since not one company does all the Marvel movies, that's the problem they have. Or had. I think I heard they found some "loop hole" to be able to do it. Cant really remember since its been a long time since I heard/read about this. But one wont be done until Cap's, Iron Man's, and someone else movies are out and done with.

Oh, ok. That makes sense. Sorta. Either way, I kind of look forward to that one. I wonder what approach they'll take to it...?

The Avengers movie was announced ages ago.

See, Marvel Studios owns the film rights to most of the Avengers characters. And it appears that they may actually introduce Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Ant-Man, and a few other characters in their own movies, and then bring them all together for "The Avengers". Since they can do that now.

As far as I can remember, when Iron Man was lined up with New Line with Cassavetes attached as director (and therefore supposedly impossible to unite with other characters at other studios), Avi Arad claimed that it was indeed possible to make an Avengers film but he never really explained HOW. Not that this explanation matters now. :p

Also, a Namor film would be awesome, but not in the way you'd think. Ask me how! :D

They said it was possible....with $700 million dollars.

Really? How! :D

Imagine something in the vein of every Dean Devlin/Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, Godzilla, The Day After Tomorrow) with the requisite ostentatiousness of a Jerry Bruckheimer (The Island, The Rock) production.

Present day, present time in the United States, and all signs point to disaster to come: Floods, typhoons and other catastrophic meteorological phenomena. There is panic on the airwaves as every self-styled doomsday prophet and ecological wingnut uses the media to declare these times are portents of humanity's just reward for not taking care of the planet.

The United Nations, the Pentagon and every other global watchdog institution you can think of is trying to make sense of it all, to come up with solutions and strategies to forestall the apparent doom that hounds human civilization. Imagine shots of defense consultants before their tactical displays, scientific pundits aiming to get their theories heard.

And just when things seem like they cannot get any more dire, creatures of myth and legend arise from the oceans: Sea serpents, and mermen warriors and amphibious machinery march into the great capitals of the world.

One man leads them all: an ocean warlord by the name of Namor, who declares that the irresponsible era of mankind is over and that the people of Atlantis have come back to take back the right to determine the existence of Planet Earth.

Namor the movie is the ultimate disaster flick, but it shall not be told from the eyes of the common people, or from the view of stern commanders, or the thoughts of the prophets and scientists who knew that Doom Was To Come.

It would be told from the eyes of the villain. It would be told from the eyes of the conqueror.

hmmm good question
I thought that Avi Arad said that "The Incredible Hulk" is "Hulk 2" not a remake. So how come the description of the movie sounds like a remake/retcon of the first movie? and who is Gargoyle? Is he some third rate character that mavel is just throwing in there? and why for the ant man movie is Scott Lang in the Ant Man suit and not Henry Pym? Isn't it suposted to be a "first movie" which means that Henry Pym being the first Ant Man should be it. It's like saying that in spider man 1 that Ben Rilley is Spider Man

I presume they're referring to Grey Gargoyle, a French chemist who accidentally gave himself the ability to turn anything he touches into stone, as well as transforming himself into a stone-like being. Personal definitions of whether he is third rate or not may vary.

Because it's more interesting. And 'first movie' syndrome is exactly why superhero movies can suck.
