Marvel already has two movies scheduled for Summer 2014?

Aug. 8, 2011by: Dave Davis

Before you get all excited, we don't actually know what the two Marvel movies in 2014 will be.

But according to slashfilm, Disney (where the Big M now resides) has already grabbed some prime real estate for a pair of upcoming Marvel movies -- specifically May 16, 2014 and June 27, 2014.

We're left with little else except speculation, but given that kind of high-profile summer placement, they'll probably be reasonably big productions. Summer of 2012 gives us THE AVENGERS and 2013 will bring us IRON MAN 3 and THOR 2. Could the following year bring us a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie, focusing more on Hawkeye, Black Widow, Nick Fury and (of course) Agent Coulson? A second CAPTAIN AMERICA solo movie seems likely at some point, but will they also attempt to assemble THE AVENGERS for a second time?

Of the characters still under Marvel's creative control (sorry X-MEN, FF, DD and SPIDEY), there has also been recent discussion about Edgar Wright's ANT-MAN and a potential DOCTOR STRANGE feature, and the studio had previously been actively working on a RUNAWAYS movie.

Still hanging out in the fringes of Marvel's roster are BLACK PANTHER, SHANG-CHI, POWER PACK, CLOAK & DAGGER, IRON FIST and LUKE CAGE. Marvel also recently reacquired BLADE and THE PUNISHER, for what it's worth.

Disney has also scheduled an as-yet-unknown Pixar movie for May 30, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: What Marvel characters do you really want to see? More of the ones we've already been given, or some fresh faces?

The May 30 release date of the Pixar film is great news...They usually wait til June and then steal whatever thunder the Dreamworks movie released a month before had. So now, Dreamworks has How To Train Your Dragon 2 scheduled for June 20th, and it can nip that little Pixar movie in the bud. Tables have turned, muthafuckas!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If they were to make a new Punisher film, I for one have no problem with it PG-13, making it more accessible. Watch the first two movies again and tell me what did gratuitous violence, the word "fuck" and boobies bring to the table? It did nothing for the Jane movie and made Warzone disgusting trash. Marvel will not make an R film, but they can make fantastic PG-13 films. Let them make Punisher the way they made Iron Man and Thor with TDK-level violence, I'm sure it will be better than both

Should definitely be 2 fresh comic book movies instead of the usual sequels or reboots, I'm with the choices of Ant Man & Dr. Strange, just as long as its fresh.

Punisher...

I would like to see another Punisher movie, and it would be amazing if they recast the role with Thomas Jane again. I thought he was a great Frank Castle.

And this is news because? Marvel has, in some way or another, released at least one new film every year since Spiderman. It must have been a slow news day, because this article is like saying "hey, your local cinema is gonna be showing films this summer". I think it's already assumed that Marvel is pretty much going to have a new movie coming out every year until they run out of ideas to put some property into film form or audiences just stop going to see comic book movies.

I would like to see a DareDevil reboot. Anything to get the bad taste of Colin Farrell as Bullseye outta my eyes and ears. Have Chris Pine as Matt Murdock and Dean Norris as Kingpin.

Until the rights revert back to Marvel, you're never gonna see a proper DD movie. Gonna have to stick the the Director's Cut for the next few years.

Can we at least have a white Kingpin?? I mean, did the Kingpin become black somewhere along the way, and I missed it?

Dr. Strange and Captain America 2 are my guesses. But I would like to see a rebooted DareDevil film.

Blade!!

Hope they bring back Blade. And if Snipes isn't too old or too incarcerated, I'd love to see him back. If not Snipes, then who? Michael Jai White?

I think Black Panther has the best potential story line out there. Its a guy running the show in an isolated country that is technologically superior to the rest of the modern world.

I would down for a Dr. Strange, Black Panther, or Luke Cage movie. A Nick Fury or Black Widow movie would also be awesome.

I'd like to see proper Blade (first one was good, the others sucked), Punisher, and DareDevil films.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here but I'd love to see Psylocke gets proper treatment. However, we have Elektra and that didn't turn out well.

I'm hoping a proper Punisher movie with Tom Jane.

As long as Disney lets Marvel do there thing, I'm for it.

If they brought back Jane, went the hard R route they went in War Zone, and made a sequel to the first movie I would totally not have an issue with it. It's the Punisher, it can not be PG-13. With the success MS has had in their first 3 years, there's no way Disney should interfere.

Taskmaster!

He's a fringe character, but after reading the miniseries that came out last year Taskmaster would make an awesome movie. Just imagine a Bourne movie, but the main character has photographic reflexes and can mimic any fighting style. THAT would rule.

That miniseries was great, Taskmaster is an awesome villain/anti-hero, and a movie of that story could be incredible. It all ties into SHIELD so it could work.

At the very least, I'd love to see Taskmaster fight the Avengers in a movie.

Wish Marvel owned the movie rights to....

Deadpool. Maybe then we wouldn't have had the abomination of the character in X-Men Origins-Wolverine. I think a Moon Knight movie would be an interesting route to go. And maybe they could finally do some justice to Frank Castle. Although I think they should wait a few more years until tackling The Punisher. I do feel though that those 2 dates will be reserved for sequels. Kind of hoping I'm wrong about that, but only time will tell. Make mine Marvel!

DareDevil is my personal fav. as far as Marvel. Frank Miller's "The Man Without Fear" would be rad but I'd like to see a fresh face or a young up and comer play young Matt Murdock.

Looking forward to Dr Strange & Edgar Wright's Ant Man!

A Heroes for Hire movie could be cool also.
Save Black Panther for the Avengers sequel.

I'd like to see a Power Pack movie done in the vein of movies like The Goonies, Explorers & The Monster Squad. Perhaps get Joe Cornish or the guy who did Monster House & City of Ember.

I'd love to see a live action Dr. Strange movie. So much potential. But Hollywood already fucked up Green Lantern and barely pulled off Thor. I don't know if I trust them with a series as fantasy heavy as Dr. Strange.

More HULK!

Side note: Would love to see a Quicksilver movie. Maybe call it Quicksilver: Son of Magneto.
I always liked him more than the Flash.

Also it would have been smart of Fox to combine their characters they own and do crossovers. X-Men vs Fantastic 4, or Fantastic 4 and Daredevil. If they had done this before the Avengers it would have been a big deal.

Also sucks we never got a solo Silver Surfer movie.

Cloak and Dagger would be really interesting to get into in the Marvel Universe. It would be cool if Marvel at least did one of the short movies for them like they were talking about for other superheroes.

NERD RAGE!!!

I'd love to see a Luke Cage movie and it seems like Luke has much love (on joblo anyway) for a "B" level character.
I really wouldn't mind an Ant-Man movie. I mean, who could when you hear Edgar Wrigh AND Ant-Man, sound's like a win to me!
But I doubt those would be "summer blockbusters", not saying they wouldn't be big/good, just that I don't see those two in prime summer dates.
I think for sure Captain America would be one of the 2 movies in 2014. But the one I would really love to see

And throw a MODOK and robot Arnim Zola for good measure. I think a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie made by Marvel could be the movie GI JOE should have been.

Have to geek out one last time...
A Namor movie (set 90% of the time under water) could be pretty rad.

Okay, I'm just going to go ahead and throw this out there and let me know what you guys think.
It may be my fanboyism speaking but GARY OLDMAN FOR DOCTOR STRANGE has a rather nice ring to it. Doesn't it?
Plus it would just be nice to see Oldman as the lead in a major blockbuster, rather than his extended cameos in stuff like Harry Potter.

I say combine the two great assets together. Marvel will come up with an original story and casting while pixar will do the animation and sound. The result would be a marvel super hero movie with the animation quality of pixar and the story quality of marvel. Now I would definately shell out a bundle to see a movie like that.

I am fine with seeing all of the same characters again and more sequels, but if we have to see someone new then I would like to see Ant-Man. Preferably playe by Nathan Fillion. I mean Joss Whedon is directing the biggest superhero movie ever.....Nathan Fillion has to be showing up in the movie as someone. And why not that someone be Ant-Man.

I'm Not usually like this...

Would love to see a Luke Cage movie...
Could use the story line from the first 'Hero For Hire' annual. Just eliminate the Discus character. And make Shades and Kamanche less comic-y and then the screenplay writes itself. The origin is already included in the story arch and ESSENTIAL to the over all narrative...

OK I'm done...

Not usually this geeky, but I love me some Luke Cage!!!

As long as Marvel keeps bringing my favorite comic characters to the big screen in a fantastic way then I'm game. They've created this humongous inter working universe with subtle winks and nods to other characters riddled throughout each movie.. and I fucking love it. Bring it on!
