Marvel Entertainment (MVL): News & Press Releases Thread!

With all of the movie rights being flipped back to Marvel or speculation of rights being returned, I really hope that during the next financial quarter review (May 4th?) there is some explaination as to who now owns what movie rights...and NOT the "partial list" crap either that conveniently leaves out projects that there has been no recent info on.

They really don't need to update the origin.How do you think they test Saddam's WMDs? In the middle of a desert,like the gamma bomb.The origin really isn't outdated,and is far better than the Gamma Sphere crap.

Exactly. Bruce caught in that bomb....that's a iconic image, and it's never been adapted in live action. The Hulk movie seemed more like an adaptation of the old TV show to me.

And the whole David Banner plot....laaaaammmme. Killed the whole..reality approach they were trying to pull. seemed like a plot from a different movie.

Small simple changes like that...would have made that movie totally awesome IMO

They usually have a pretty complete list of projects that have "activity". I'm sure they'll have TBA next to the release dates of all of these new annoucements. Only 3 have directors attached as of now. That should change because I know Marvel is in talks with directors on Hulk 2 for certain. I think Chris Columbus is free since he backed away from Namor. That pissed me off cause I thought he was good for Namor.
 
Dynatech Action gets Marvel rights

TORONTO—Dynatech Action has signed a licensing deal with Marvel Entertainment for confectionary items and preschool products based on the comic book company’s Marvel Heroes and Spider-Man & Friends characters.

The agreement will see Dynatech feature Marvel characters as part of its foray into the confection aisle with Fizzheads, a fizzy drink-making capsule that slides up and down a straw; Edibles, articulated candy figures with real moving parts; and Eggtopia, chocolate eggs that feature Marvel Heroes characters hidden inside.

Dynatech will also incorporate Spider-Man & Friends books into the Storytime Theater brand, an early reading product that projects story-book imagery on a wall or ceiling.


“We are very pleased to have developed this agreement with Marvel,” says Brad Pedersen, president/CEO of Dynatech. “Our expansion into new categories such as confection and preschool has been enhanced by Marvel Entertainment and their amazing library of characters.”

Set to launch this fall, the Marvel Heroes brand will be featured on Edibles, Fizzheads, Eggtopia, Stick Splatch, Play2O and novelty pens. The Spider-Man & Friends Storytime Theater book will debut in 2007.

Some cool XMAS gifts for the little ones.
