Comic-Con: Marvel Sets ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy 2′ For 2017; ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Footage Draws Standing OvationWe finally know the first of the Marvel films that Disney has been setting aside dates for: Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 will arrive July 28, 2017. That leaves five unidentified superhero flicks between November 2017 and May 2019. The announcement came during Marvel’s Comic-Con panel tonight. Guardians star Chris Pratt and director James Gunn appeared via video from London, where they are promoting the first movie’s release overseas.

Avengers Ultron Comic-ConThe panel also included the Avengers cast, who were introduced one by one and asked what it’s like to be in the third-highest-grossing film of all time. Throwing roses out to the Hall H crowd, Robert Downey Jr introduced all those in Avengers: Age of Ultron sans Scarlett Johansson: Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Paul Bettany (The Vision), James Spader (voice of Ultron) and Elizabeth Olsen (as Scarlet Witch).

Whedon couldn’t be here because of an injury. Feige said, “Scarlett couldn’t be here because she’s pregnant.” Then she introduced a clip via viThe-Avengersdeo from Age of Ultron in which the team, in a penthouse, play a round of trying to pick up Thor’s hammer. Tony Stark puts his Iron Man hand on, Captain America makes a go. Then Ultron crashes the party. Iron Man gets in a big super suit as apocalypse dawns again. A lot of crash-bang-boom, like the finale of the first film. Playing throughout the trailer is a child singing, “I Got No Strings” from Disney’s Pinocchio. Last shot in the clip shows all the Avengers lying dead in a massive heap against a black sky, with Tony Stark the only one standing alive. The audience gave the clip a standing ovation. Amplifying the room’s mood was Josh Brolin walking in as Thanos. Read More »

UPDATE: Disney Sets Another Mystery Marvel Movie For 2018

By | Wednesday July 23, 2014 @ 3:15pm PDT

UPDATE: Disney Sets Another Mystery Marvel Movie For 2018UPDATED, 3:15PM: As folks head south for Comic-Con, Disney and Marvel have announced yet another mystery movie, this one set to kick off the 2018 summer season. Marvel Untitled — that “title” sound familiar?  — will invade a megaplex near you on May 4, 2018. This makes a half-dozen of their TBA superhero flicks set to open 2017 and 2019.

PREVIOUSLY, July 18: Just in time for Comic-Con, Disney has press-dumped a quintet of release dates for untitled Marvel films that fanboys and girls can spend the weekend agonizing over before the Con. They’ll open two films in 2017, on July 28, 2017 and November 3, 2017, followed by two more in 2018 on July 6, 2018 and November 2, 2018. The summer/fall double hitter strategy stops (as far as we know) in 2019, when Marvel will release one new to-be-identified pic on May 3, 2019.

We’ll know next week if Disney/Marvel reveal any of this extended lineup in San Diego, though the studio might as well use it as more ammo to drive fans to its own D23 fan confab. Read More »

Maya Rudolph, James Cromwell, More Join Disney’s Marvel Animation ‘Big Hero 6′

By | Monday July 14, 2014 @ 3:46pm PDT

Maya Rudolph, James Cromwell, More Join Disney’s Marvel Animation ‘Big Hero 6′Walt Disney Animation Studios has assembled its voice cast for the studio’s fall feature Big Hero 6, about a young robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada and his robot companion Baymax, who pull together a team of crime fighters to save the city of San Fransokyo. Maya Rudolph, James Cromwell, Damon Wayans Jr., T.J. Miller, Alan Tudyk, Jamie Chung, Genesis Rodriguez and Daniel Henney will voice the cast, with Oregon born, Tokyo raised actor Ryan Potter (Nickelodeon’s Supah Ninjas) starring as as Hiro Hamada and Scott Adsit voicing Baymax.

Big Hero 6 is the first Disney pic to feature Marvel universe characters and is adapted by Don Hall and Jordan Roberts from the Marvel comic mini-series of the same name, whose team and characters were created by Man of Action’s Duncan Rouleau and Steven T. Seagle. They’ve tweaked a few details: The original Big Hero 6 story took place in Japan and featured a post-nuclear villain created from the souls of atomic bombing victims; Disney’s version is being promoted heavily on the cute factor of robot sidekick Baymax.

Marvel Wants SCOTUS To Reject Jack Kirby Heirs’ “Bizarre” Rights Petition

By | Monday July 14, 2014 @ 2:18pm PDT

Marvel Wants SCOTUS To Reject Jack Kirby Heirs’ “Bizarre” Rights PetitionEXCLUSIVE: No big surprise that today Marvel and Disney asked the Supreme Court to deny a petition from the heirs of Captain America, The Avengers and X-Men co-creator Jack Kirby. “This case presents a factbound application of a test uniformly adopted by the lower courts under a statute that does not apply to works created after 1978,” said a response filed today (read it here). “It implicates no circuit split, no judicial taking, no due process violation, and no grave matter of separation of powers. It does not remotely merit this Court’s review,” added the media giant’s main attorney in the matter, R. Bruce Rich. In case, Marvel’s rejection of the heirs desires were not clear enough, the Disney-owned company really hits it hard elsewhere in today’s response. “In likely recognition of the fact that the statutory question does not satisfy the requirements for this Court’s review, petitioners turn to a series of bizarre constitutional arguments raised for the first time in this Court,” says Marvel. “Those arguments only underscore that none of the questions presented merits this Court’s plenary consideration.”

DJP LEGAL BADGEIn a move that could have huge copyright implications for the entertainment industry if it went before the nine justices and they found in the heirs’ favor, Lisa Kirby, Neal Kirby, Susan Kirby and Barbara Kirby petitioned the SCOTUS this spring to hear their much-denied case. The heirs contended they had the right in 2009 to issue 45 termination notices to Marvel and others including Fox, … Read More »

Marvel Teams Up With ‘The View’ For “Thundering” Promo Synergy

By | Monday July 14, 2014 @ 1:22pm PDT

Marvel Teams Up With ‘The View’ For “Thundering” Promo SynergyAfter last week’s tumult on ABC‘s lady chat show The View, the network’s parent co. Disney is changing the conversation – to comic books. Disney-owned Marvel teased today that they’ll announce “an all-new thundering title” Tuesday morning on The View, hosted by Whoopi Goldberg and the departing Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy. Marvel-watchers are speculating that the “explosive” project could be a new Thor spin-off film or TV show, female-driven given The View‘s XX chromosome-laden audience – actress Jaimie Alexander crossed over from the big screen to Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. earlier this season on the ABC show – but a source tells Deadline it may not be a film or TV “title” at all. Tune in with the fanboys tomorrow at 8 AM PT/11 AM ET for the big reveal.

WATCH: More Is More In Marvel’s ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ IMAX Preview, Extended Trailer?

By | Tuesday July 8, 2014 @ 1:41pm PDT

WATCH: More Is More In Marvel’s ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ IMAX Preview, Extended Trailer?Below is the latest trailer for Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, which opens July 31 internationally before debuting stateside the next day. This new action-packed extended peek dropped after Disney/Marvel unloaded 17 minutes of IMAX footage last night to drum up buzz on the superhero team-up, including a looong galactic prison break scene and sizzle reels that drew comparisons to Star Wars from fans and bloggers.

I’ve heard the James Gunn-directed pic is almost done with post with less than a month left to go before release. Given its lesser known comic book characters and the tepid summer on the box office charts so far, Marvel needs to drum up all the excitement it can.

Peyton Reed Chosen As ‘Ant-Man’ Director; Adam McKay Will Help Script

By | Saturday June 7, 2014 @ 10:27am PDT

Peyton Reed596498-webBREAKING: Marvel just announced that they have hired Peyton Reed to direct Ant-Man with Adam McKay to help script the superhero flick, ending the game of musical chairs on this film about who will helm the film. Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas are leading the cast of the film which will bow on July 17, 2015. Rudd is playing Ant-Man, of course, and Douglas will portray Dr. Hank Pym, Ant-Man’s mentor who helps protect the superhero’s secrets and develops the potion that turns humans into ant-sized. The film, based on the Marvel comic book from the 1960s, goes before the cameras this fall.

McKay was previously in talks to helm the Marvel property but dropped out last week; yesterday both Reed and David Wain were being talked up as the two possible helmers. That followed the surprising departure of Edgar Wright at the helm over creative differences. Interesting that Marvel head Kevin Feige is putting his bets on two filmmakers who lean heavily in comedy (and therein may lie the rub).

‘Sinister’s Scott Derrickson To Direct ‘Doctor Strange’ For Marvel

By | Tuesday June 3, 2014 @ 3:12pm PDT

Doctor Strange movieDespite having a vacant director chair for its Ant-Man film, Marvel Studios has zeroed in on Sinister helmer Scott Derrickson to direct Doctor Strange. “My next movie will be STRANGE,” Derrickson tweeted Tuesday afternoon. Stan Lee and Steve Ditko created the character in 1963 as a neurosurgeon who serves as the Sorcerer Supreme protecting Earth against magical and mystical threats with powers of sorcery, mysticism, and martial arts. Marvel’s Kevin Feige is producing the big-screen outing about the Silver Age Marvel superhero and Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Alan Fine, Lee, and Stephen Broussard are exec producing.

Related: Will Risky ‘Ant-Man’ Be Marvel’s Waterloo Or Greatest Triumph?

Derrickson made his feature writing and directing debut with the 2005 horror flick The Exorcism Of Emily Rose and followed with his first major studio gig, 2008′s The Day The Earth Stood Still for Fox. The Keanu Reeves starrer was a critical disappointment. Four years later, Derrickson returned with smaller-scale genre pic Sinister, which he co-wrote with C. Robert Cargill, produced, and directed on a $3M shooting budget for microbudget maven Jason Blum. Sinister became an $87M box office hit for Blumhouse Productions and Summit. Derrickson’s next, the Jerry Bruckheimer/Screen Gems exorcism horror Deliver Us From Evil, opens July 2. He’s also set to write and produce Sinister 2. The helmer is repped by WME, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and attorneys P.J. Shapiro and Matt Johnson.

UPDATE: Will Risky ‘Ant-Man’ Be Marvel’s Waterloo Or Greatest Triumph?

By | Saturday May 31, 2014 @ 1:20pm PDT
Mike Fleming

UPDATE: Amid the morning news that Adam McKay has backed away from talks of directing Marvel‘s Ant-Man, the Anchorman director took to Twitter to say the following:


PREVIOUS, 8:04 AM ANALYSIS: Marvel and the reps of Adam McKay will spend the weekend trying to make a deal for the Talladega Nights helmer to replace Edgar Wright as the director of Ant-Man. McKay, the former Saturday Adam McKayNight Live writer who grew up on that show with Will Ferrell and moved with him to feature films, has become an accomplished director of comedies (Step Brothers is my favorite), but this seems to be a risky move (reports have him already deciding this is not for him). I was already skeptical of how serious to take the Ant-Man thing when Paul Rudd was cast as the title character, not because Rudd isn’t a good enough actor, but because he’s so identified as a comic actor. Setting McKay as director pushes the perception of this movie more towards, say, The Green Hornet than something like Captain America: Winter Soldier. I would have been less surprised had McKay been set to direct Ghostbusters, after Ivan Reitman bowed out, than a superhero film. One of the best things about these Marvel superhero movies under Kevin Feige is that they don’t take themselves too seriously in between giant action sequences. The blend of the occasional great comic line was particularly sharp in the Joss Whedon-directed Avengers film.

Josh Brolin Voicing Marvel’s ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ & ‘Avengers 2′ Villian

By | Friday May 30, 2014 @ 1:34pm PDT

"Labor Day" - Mayfair Gala European Premiere - Red Carpet Arrivals: 57th BFI London Film FestivalHe’s played his fair share of good guys, bad and even a sitting President of the United States, but Josh Brolin is really going to be playing full-on evil in Disney and Marvel’s upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy and The Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Marvel as usual will say nothing but sources confirm the actor will voice the character of villain Thanos in the blockbuster superhero pics. Latino Review first broke the news of Brolin’s involvement in Guardians.  Sources tell me that the actor Thanosactually was cast months ago as Thanos for the James Gunn-directed pic and has completed all the VO work. Good thing too, because Guardians  is out on August 1. Glimpsed briefly at the end of 2012’s The Avengers, Thanos is a long-standing character in the Marvel Comics universe who has brought a tone of chaos and has a complicated romantic life to say the least. Damon Poitier played the purple skinned villain in the Joss Whedon-directed pic. Indications are Thanos will be back in a much bigger way in the sequel due out next May 1 with Brolin providing the vocals so to speak. He certainly isn’t the only thespian of note doing voice work for the Marvel megamovies. Bradley Cooper is voicing furry gun-toting hero … Read More »

‘Ant-Man’ / Edgar Wright Lessons: Kevin Feige’s Vision Rules Marvel; Time To Get Excited About ‘Kolchak: The Night Stalker’?

Mike Fleming

edgaA couple of things to consider in the divorce between Edgar Wright and Marvel over Ant-Man. In my mind, Wright’s surprise exit Friday over creative differences shows that while Marvel certainly will try to tap strong directors for its superhero properties, the power at that studio clearly resides with one person, Kevin Feige. You might recall this is the second high-profile shooter who was ousted from a big Marvel movie. Patty Jenkins, who guided Charlize Theron to an Oscar performance in Monster, had been set to helm Thor 2 until she clashed creatively with Marvel. If you recall, the hiring of Jenkins was considered a big step forward because so few female directors get a shot at a superhero film. Feige replaced her with Alan Taylor, the Game Of Thrones helmer who did a fine job and has taken on the job of resuscitating the Terminator franchise for Paramount and Skydance Productions.

Related: Director Patty Jenkins Exits Marvel’s ‘Thor 2′

antmaThe exit of Wright is more surprising, considering he came to Comic-Con several years ago and showed a sample of the shrinking technology that would anchor the film. Then, Wright got Feige’s blessing to postpone the movie while he did The World’s End because Working Title partner Eric Fellner had a life-threatening health matter and Wright felt honor bound to see through the final leg of the Cornetto trilogy. The fact that Wright is so revered among the demo that Ant-Man will have to appeal to shows the confidence that Marvel has in Feige’s vision — and, indeed, the movies under his watch have been so good it’s hard to argue. It seems similar to the hold that producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson wield over the James Bond franchise. How many huge directors have expressed desire to helm a 007 film but were rebuffed or stepped away because the ultimate creative call resides not with any filmmaker but the producers who are the flame keepers of the franchise?

Supreme Court Decision To Hear Jack Kirby Rights Case Against Marvel & Disney Expected This Month

Avi Arad Slams BusinessWeek’s Marvel Story: “I Have Given Up On Journalistic Integrity”

By | Monday May 5, 2014 @ 10:08am PDT

indexUPDATED: Avi Arad, the former chairman/CEO of Marvel Studios (which he founded) has responded harshly to last month’s BusinessWeek‘s cover story profiling Marvel president Kevin Feige. In an email, first obtained by Latino-Review, Arad takes issue with the report about Feige titled “The Man Who Saved Marvel” which states that Arad resigned from Marvel in 2006 over a disagreement about a $525M self-financing deal with Merrill Lynch. Arad, one of the producers on Sony/Marvel’s big weekend opener The Amazing Spider-Man 2, is now running his own production company, Arad Prods. He still produces Marvel titles.

Iron Man 3Arad told Deadline: “We had a list of titles, but the slate didn’t have Iron Man or Hulk, and I had a very tough time getting Iron Man back from New Line, but we got it back. I always loved Iron Man. I left because I wanted to leave. It was nothing other than it was time to go. The company was growing and I didn’t like committees and I was 60 and was doing well as it was. I took a walk and thought, ‘I’m too old for this.’ And I thought if I keep nothing but Spider-Man, I will continue with Marvel, but I can do other things. I wanted to do other things … and I am now. The company is in good hands with Kevin who doing a great job.” His anger over the insinuations in the article written by staff writer Devin Leonard are very clear.

BusinessWeek spokeswoman Rachel Nagler told Deadline: “Devin Leonard did receive this email from Avi Arad, and an email exchange followed between them. We stand by the reporting in our story.” Here, in his own words, is Arad’s email (paragraphs have been added to make it easier to read):

Good morning Devin. As usual you manage to disappoint me with your false statements. I am sure you were told by Marvel that I resigned over the self-financing strategy. It is about time for a reporter like you to do your homework and check the facts. It will sound arrogant to you, but I single handedly put together the Marvel slate. Read it carefully and you will notice the natural progression of the character’s design to get to where we are today.
