    Great article; I just posted the same on the Hulk board. Seems like this is our first concrete information on Marvel's plans for 2008.

    Nothing new? I must be missing some info, because some of the stuff seemed new. He said that Hulk 2 would be one of the first Marvel Studios films (if not the first) and specifically named Abomination as the villian. Was that old news that I just missed?

    Well, Captain American and Iron Man seem like their best choices at this point. IM can be a cool mix of hi-tech sci-fi, James Bond intrigue and glamour and a human touch - his heart problem, his alcoholism. Captain America is a popular character, but the current climate with the fight on terrorism and the impopularity of US in the rest of the world can be a problem for the movie overseas. A sequel for Hulk sounds difficult, but who knows, if WB managed to resurrect Batman after Batman & Robin and Catwoman...

    ^ That all makes me happy.

    #1 2009 is 2.5 years away big deal and if that means getting the top choice for director so be it. At least they're not settling.

    #2 The author doesn't quite understand that this is a non-recourse loan for MVL. There is no risk of Marvel losing a dime on these deals. The risk is losing the movie rights and if the particular movie rights prove to be duds...who cares. However...no way that will happen. Of 12 Marvel theatrical releases only one was a dud...Elektra. The rest were all very very profitable including the Punisher which made a nice profit considering it's budget. It made over 44 million just in dvd sales.

    Yeah, despite what people say, Hulk and Daredevil made money. Universal isn´t pushing for the sequel because they don´t want to spend another fortune in a movie that wasn´t quite the tentpole franchise they were hoping for, and because of the big post-opening drops. With DD, I believe Affleck is a big part of the problem... His casting was important for the studio to invest in the movie, but then he wasn´t interested anymore, and now it doesn´t really matter if he´s interested or not...

    I wonder if this is going to be most of the news we hear on that May 4th conference. I hope there's more info.

    Anyway good to hear that they are actually taking their time to make sure Cap is done right. Hopefully they find a respectable budget for Hulk 2 and Iron Man.

    Glad to see Iron Man is moving along well, hopefully we'll get a proper update on the films progression within the next few weeks. Shame about Captain America though, I was expecting to see the film take its course and make it to the theater about the same date Arad plans to get the director of his choice. But I'll agree with Mr. Magoo's post on the timing to make the film true to what it is from the comics, patience is a virtue I suppose. I'm sure it'll be worth the wait.

    Very well said. :up: :up:

    I also agree with Mr. Magoo's notion, Cap would be a great film. But it's like Batman said, patience IS indeed a virture. I just hope we see Cap kick Red Skull's ass!!!

    And I'm so excited about the Iron Man news, I can't wait to see him don the armor and fly across NYC on the big screen. [​IMG]

    WOW! I did not know that Marvel was being ripped off that much. Only 10-15% of the movies? Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson get a larger percentage then that.

    But I have a question. After the movies are released(ex. Spider-Man 3) does Marvel automatically own the movie rights after it's released or does Sony keep the rights?

    If Sony keeps the rights then this could be a huge mistake. Because they've sold off all of the movie rights to most of the best Superheroes. Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic 4, etc. So now the only movies Marvel can make are the crappy ones like Ant-Man, Plastic Dude, and the crime fighting martial arts man. Movies like those are not going to be huge blockbusters. I think Marvel only has 2 more great blockbusters other then ones that have already been made: Iron Man and Captain America.

    Sony keeps the rights until they decide to stop making Spider-Man movies.

    Marvel has several potential blockbusters on their hands: Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk 2, the Avengers and we all know that they will eventually get the rights to Daredevil back.

    I don't know.

    Blade came out of nowhere. He had existed in the comics since the 1970s, but almost no one had heard of him. Even his guest slot in the nineties Spider-Man show wasn't that memorable.

    Now if Blade can work, I'd say just about any Marvel property, no matter how obscure (Except for a Hank Pym solo, or Shang Chi since when I checked last Fu Manchu as a movie property was still under Universal control. (#%@ Copyright laws aplying to effectively Immortal companies when no one at the company will actually step u and claim a charecter. Grrr!)

    I would especially love to see Runaways, She-Hulk, Cloak and Dagger, Power Pack, or Spider-Woman Jessica Drew on the silver screen.

    If those are done right, and they still bomb, it would say far more about the American cinema going public than it would about Marvel.

    You have to remember they make hundreds of millions more off everything else from toys, video games, merchandise, use of characters for anything basically. Anytime you see a t-shirt, cofee mug, key-chain, socks, plate, outdoor jumper etc...with a Marvel character on it...they get paid. Now making their own movies...they're gonna make a mint. Sony as the poster said above owns the rights till the stop making the films.
