Avengers/JLA updates

Just a few years ago writer Brian Bendis said not to expect an AVENGERS movie any time in the near future because of the complications of filming a superhero team movie. But now we have two "team" movies in the works - AVENGERS at Marvel Studios and JUSTICE LEAGUE at Warner Bros. Marvel has set Zak Penn to write the AVENGERS and WB has a draft of JLA from Kieran Mulroney and Michele Mulroney. Penn hasn't yet begun work on AVENGERS but the Mulroneys have turned in their script and the project is currently out to directors (thoughts?). For Marvel, they own most of the rights to the original Avengers (including Thor and Captain America and other than Hulk, who is owned by Universal. Bendis might be partially correct however because although the script is in the works for AVENGERS, Marvel is looking to wait until all their stand alone films are completed and released. That could mean an AVENGERS film might not even start production until 2010. I guess the better question I have is why not do a joint-production of a crossover movie: AVENGERS VS. JLA? Now that, my friends, would kick ass.

The Avengers film should go with the second team: Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Captain America. Bring in Vision and eventually Wonder Man and have the villians be Ultron and Simon's brother the Grim Reaper.

Universal is simply distributing Hulk. Marvel has the rights back to it.

JLA.....I won't even comment on that laugh fest.

JLA movie should be like the Giffen & DiMattheis comics, blending humour and action, but in a smart way, no cheesy F4 way.

Give it to Edgar Wright and you'll have a hit

I'm hip, but why don't they just cut the cost which would be astronomical and would probably shortchange a lot of characters, and do the flicks animated like Ultimate Avengers,(the first wasn't bad.) By the way, if you did a team movie, how about the Defenders. Now that was an interesting team, Doc Strange, Hulk, Son of Satan, Gargoyle, Beast, Nighthawk, Valkyrie, and Hellcat. That's a wierd bunch.

I think Alex Ross should be involved with the JLA movie somehow..his depiction of the Justice League is awesome.

Seeing that each character is being made into a movie from marvel them selfs, The Avengers movie team would be Hulk Thor Cap IronMan Ant-Man. Add the wasp in there and they are all set. Now i know hulk was from universal pictures but doesnt marvel have the rights now seeing that first of all its there freaking character and two marvel is now making the movie on ther own. As far as actors, Just have the actors from there own movie play the part. It would not make sence to make diffrent actors

And one more thing for StarBolt, What the fuck kind of casting is that, Triple H a no talent hack of a wrestler, And matt damon, What the fuck!!!!! Hell no!

thor

If the guy that played Sabretooth and is the new Michael Myers in Zombie's Halloween, Tyler Mane, might be a decent Thor, if his acting is up to par..

The Budget ....

... for each of the movies will definitely reach sky high limit. But that and the script probably isn't the problem, the problem is finding directors and actors.

First!
My bid for Matt Damon as the Star-Spangled, Shield Slinging Avenger. I could imagine Thor played by Triple H or even better the (forgot his name) the guy who was the leader of the band of warriors in The 13th Warrior...
