Marvel Studios is rumored to be putting together a package of four new shows and a miniseries to shop around to cable networks and VOD services.
Guardians of the Galaxy actor Djimon Hounsou, who voiced Black Panther for a motion comic, says he’d be interested in reprising the role on the big screen, but “it would have to be done right.”
The Avengers: Age of Ultron writer/director Joss Whedon says actor James Spader was always his choice for Ultron, calling his voice “eerily calm and compelling.”
Vin Diesel says that his June conversation with Marvel was about “something so big I can’t even talk about because it’s like the merging of brands.”
At a special screening of The Avengers, Joss Whedon talked about including The Wasp in his original script, hinted at a future villain and explained why the Buffy animated series didn’t get off the ground.
The 17-second teaser for Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 briefly shows the new suit in action, Gwenyth Paltrow in trouble and a first look at Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin and a new photo showcases Iron Patriot. The full trailer premieres Tuesday.
Saying “the California film and television industry needs a hero,” one organization has asked Joss Whedon to shoot the newly announced S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot and potential TV series in the Los Angeles area.
When news first broke that Joss Whedon was going to be writing and directing Marvel’s second Avengers movie and also developing a television series for Marvel, I was – like everyone else – a very happy person indeed. And then I saw the actual press release, and… Well, I might’ve changed my mind a little bit.
That Joss Whedon has been signed by Disney/Marvel to write and direct Avengers 2 shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, given the outrageous success of the first one. But that he’s also going to create a “Marvel-based” series for ABC is the far more interesting news to come from Disney today – and the kind of thing that’s likely to drive speculation for quite some time to come.
