Marvel’s Phase Two is coming together. That was the message presented at New York Comic-Con this past weekend as Marvel President Kevin Feige was on hand to promote next summer’s The Avengers. Of course, he was also bombarded with questions about what’s happening after that. Among the revelations were that the first post-Avengers movie, Iron Man 3, is the beginning of a new phase that will ultimately lead to The Avengers 2 and that film will likely feature a new team. Doctor Strange could factor into that plan and the Hulk TV show might even link up. It’s all explained after the jump along with the full Avengers panel for your viewing pleasure. Read More »

In October it was announced that Marvel Studios was working on a live action television series for The Incredible Hulk for ABC, one of three live-action series the comic book television division is developing for the Mouse House. At the time we didn’t have many details. The project was assumed to be an hour-long program, and we didn’t know how involved Heroes exec producer Jeph Loeb, head of development at Marvel’s television division (launched in June), would be in the project.

ABC Studios is finalizing a deal with Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) and Battlestar Galactica executive producer David Eick.

After Disney’s acquisition of Marvel, a television division was set-up at Marvel Studios with Jeph Loeb (Heroes, Smallville, Lost and Buffy the Vampire Slayer) hired to run the operation.

It’s way too early to get overly interested in the idea of further Hulk movies. Until The Avengers is done, we don’t know if Marvel and Universal have any further plans for standalone films. But while we know for certain that we’ll never see Spider-Man‘s Dylan Baker live out the second half of his character arc, there’s at least a slight chance that we could see Tim Blake Nelson from The Incredible Hulk turn out to be the mutated, villainous Leader. The actor is still very interested in the role; read what he’s got to say about it after the break. Read More »


Upon hearing the news of the recasting of Mark Ruffalo in the role of Bruce Banner/The Hulk for Marvel’s Avengers movie, I recall thinking about how strange it is that there are going to be three different incarnations of the character within ten years of each other. Little did I know at the time that there are actually going to be four.

That’s right; The Incredible Hulk is heading back to television. Read More »


The day after we reported on the first hint to the future of Marvel’s master movie plan, someone a bit more authoritative is talking about it too. Mark Ruffalo, who will be taking over Edward Norton’s role as The Hulk/Bruce Banner via mo-cap in The Avengers, has teased a few things that he probably heard meeting with Kevin Feige and the Marvel brass. As we all know, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger will culminate in The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon, on May 4, 2012. After that, another set of films will start to come out possibly finishing in 2017. What exactly did Ruffalo have to say on the subject? Hit the jump to read his quote and more. Read More »

Joaquin Phoenix

For a few weeks now, we’ve been hearing rumors that Marvel Studios was set to unveil Edward Norton on stage at Comic-Con later this month, revealing that the actor would return to reprise his role from The Incredible Hulk in the superhero team-up movie The Avengers. But last week Marvel confirmed that Norton would not be back for the new film due not to “monetary factors” but the “the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members.” Norton’s agent Brian Swardstrom quickly responded claiming that Marvel was excited to have Norton back as Hulk for the new film, that Norton even met with writer/director Joss Whedon about the film, and after “several weeks of civil, uncontentious discussions,” Marvel decided not hire Norton for what appeared to be purely financial reasons. Two different stories, but who is telling the truth?

With Comic-Con quickly approaching, who will Marvel unveil on stage as the new Bruce Banner?

Any guesses?

How about Joaquin Phoenix?
