Marvel Smacks Their Bitch Up


In recent months we have heard how DC was planning on a big screen Justice League movie fairly soon. This of course was going to be absolute dog shit since they were going to recast Batman and Superman for this. Then the Writer's Strike began and the movie has fallen to the wayside, thank god.

Marvel however is not owned by Warner Brothers and have begun making their own movies, which we really see for the first time this year with Punisher: War Zone, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk. Well being their own entity Marvel have made their own deal with the writers and is now continuing production on the upcoming Captain America, Thor, Ant Man and of course Marvel's version of the JLA The Avengers.

Marvel is doing it right though, it's not recasting parts to fit that movie. Rumor on the street is that the folks you see playing Iron Man and Hulk will be playing their respective roles in the Avengers film. This means Samuel Bad Ass Mother Fucker L Jackson as Col. Nick Fury in almost every single Marvel film.

I personally can't wait for the Avengers movie, but can't wait even more so for when Marvel once again owns the X-Men franchise rights, maybe then they will let the right man for the job do the movie, Joss Whedon.

I still want a better Punisher movie...

Maybe my expectations are unrealistic, but that character was far too badass for the movies that've been made about it so far.

Hard to beat Dolph though :)

Have faith young padawan...Titus Pullo is on his way

SayHey Kid said...

The new Punisher is due out February I believe WITH TITUS POLO!!! OOOO AAAAH

Shane- Is Blade going to be cast in The Avengers?? I kinda hope so, Blade's success is a major reason Marvel made other Comic Movies.

SayHey Kid said...

Yeh, I meant Pullo

Shane Rollins said...

Why would Blade be in an Avengers movie? I don't think he's even appeared in an Avengers comic.

I'll make an Avengers post later today

Im just saying, hoping they can find a way to squeeze him in. It is Hollywood, anything can happen

Dews said...

Punisher could have been in Spiderman, or Daredevil...

That would have had a chance to save either of those movies anyway :)

Daredevil could have been good but Ben Affleck ruined him. That and there wasnt enough Elektra in costume.
