A draft of The Avengers has been finished?

03.02.2010

Is the Marvel movie universe genuinely starting to come together?

At the very least, the AVENGERS are beginning to assemble. As Marvel Comics honcho Joe Quesada noted today on Twitter:

Definition of "goose bumps." Pressing enter and watching a screenplay entitled "AVENGERS" come out of my printer.

And moments later:

It's official, I have the greatest job in the world.

As we've expected, such a recent script presumably incorporates plenty of elements and threads from the other Marvel movies in the pipe: IRON MAN 2, THOR and CAPTAIN AMERICA. What additional familiar or new Marvel movie and/or comic characters make the cut (Black Widow, Hawkeye, Hulk, etc.) remain the mystery for the moment.

Screenwriter and comic geek Zak Penn (INCREDIBLE HULK, X2) has been involved with AVENGERS for quite a while (he was talking about it way back when I visited the set of his poker movie THE GRAND several years ago), but unfortunately director Jon Favreau has already said he won't be rounding up the team. The movie will theoretically film in 2011 for a summer 2012 release.

Extra Tidbit: Don't bother with the Hulk -- give me She-Hulk!

Re. Terminal 83

Agree - if they pull this of - this movie has potential beyond any other Marvel/DC movie.

Although the budget must equate the potential - 300 million at least. Plus a solid director and script.

I personally don't think we need an Avengers movie but if it's going to happen then I hope it's done right. If they pull this off this could be the ultimate action movie. Here's hoping.

And announce who Cap Am is already!!

THINGS AVENGERS NEED TO SUCEED ...

... 1. GREAT SCRIPT !!!!! 2. Cap, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, Nick Fury, Hulk (all cast returns, preferable bonus - Hawkeye (Renner), War Machine (Cheadle)) 3. Director who knows what he's doing (yes, say f*** off to Tim Story, Mark Steven Johnson, Brett Rathner, McG, Shawn Levy etc.). Favreau would be a preferable choice, but it' not gonna happen so ... 4. NO ORIGIN STORY WHATSOEVER (you have solo movies for that). 5. A VILLAIN (I'd prefer Hulk as a good guy but if you wanna party ... :))

The Soloist - Where have you been? They already released the final 6 in the running for Caps and it also seems the person they are leaning towards is John Krasinski from "The Office". Nowhere on that list was Ackles. Supposedly he was on the list at some point but due to scheduling conflicts (one would assume due to "Supernatural" being picked up for a 6th season) he is no longer in the running. Yes, I am disappointed too...

As for this news, Great. A script is finished. But I'm still

I love the idea of the Hulk being the villain so much,

It just works so well for me.

Okay

Yeah, bring in She-Hulk!! About the Avengers, I think this has more potential to be live-action movie than JLA.

Any Chance of an Incredible Hulk sequel?

I actually loved that take and am really holding out for a follow up with Hulk facing off against the Leader!

... Then again, I'm also hoping for Hellboy 3 and Serenity 2... One can dream!
