Marvel Movie Madness!

5 05 2008

Marvel Studios has announced today it’s line up for the next couple years, and I must say it’s looking good.

Here’s a a bit from

Marvel Entertainment released their first quarter report to its shareholders this morning to coincide with the announcement about the success this past weekend of Marvel Studios’ first production Iron Man, which grossed an estimated $104.2 million domestically and over $201 million worldwide. The announcement included an update of Marvel Studios’ feature film slate with the already-rumored Iron Man 2 announced for a release on April 30, 2010, followed by three more movies for the summers of ’10 and ’11. Matthew Vaughn’s Thor is set for a release on June 4, 2010, and The First Avenger: Captain America (the working title) will kick off the summer of 2011 on May 6, followed by the highly-anticipated and foreshadowed The Avengers scheduled for July 2011. (Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man is also listed as being in development with no release date set.)

More at the link above. With this list announced be on the look out for announcement’s or writers,directors and actors for the films mentioned. Ah it’s a good time to be a Marvel fan.

UPDATE from Comics Continuum:

Marvel’s outsourced movies schedule remained unchanged Punisher: War Zone from Lionsgate on Dec. 5 and X-Men Origins: Wolverine from 20th Century Fox on May 1, 2009.

Maisel said development of Spider-Man 4 continues with Sony Pictures. “I can’t give any other updates other than to say it’s in development and everybody’s excited about Spider-Man 4,” he said.

Marvel also announced animation plans.

The new Iron Man series — which, like Wolverine and the X-Men, will debut in spring 2009 on Nicktoons — has been titled Iron Man: Armored Adventures.

New series announced include Hulk Gamma Corps and Super Hero Squad.

Direct-to-DVD movies will include Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow for late 2008, Hulk Vs. for early 2009, Thor: Son of Asgard for late 2009 and Planet Hulk for early 2010.
