Exciting Details on Upcoming Marvel Studios Projects

Marvel fans rejoice! We have some stellar updates on upcoming projects in their pipeline, and I think you're going to be happy about it. Well, for the most part.

A topic that we've frequently discussed on our AMC Movie Talk show, is who could replace Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man if "Iron Man 3" was really his last time reprising the character. All this time, he has not been officially signed on for "Avengers 2", even though we all believed (and hoped) that he would at least be back for that one.

Insiders say that a meeting between RDJ and Marvel President Kevin Feige happened last night, and that they discussed his return to the role in "Avengers 2" and "Avengers 3". At this time, it doesn't look like a fourth "Iron Man" film will be happening, as it sounds like RDJ is not interested. As much as fans would like to see him continue the role for eternity, I think we can all definitely respect a trilogy, remaining a trilogy. As well as his desire to not be typecast as the character for the rest of his acting career.

One of the most interesting reveals that came from the meeting, is that Marvel has a script in development for a "Ms. Marvel" film. Very interesting indeed that Marvel would launch a standalone female-fronted superhero film, before Warner Bros/DC launches a "Wonder Woman" film.

Besides the great news of an "Avengers 3" film coming, Marvel has also revealed they have film plans for "Doctor Strange", "Iron Fist", "Black Panther" and "The Runaways" on their pipeline.

There was also word that there is a development for a "Blade" reboot, whose rights recently were returned to Marvel. Could it be that we'll finally see a rated-R film from Marvel/Disney?

Feige also stated that there are no plans for spin-off films for War Machine (played by Don Cheadle in "Iron Man 2 and 3") or The Falcon (played by Anthony Macki in the upcoming "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
