For the past several years, there’s been one major hurdle standing between Namor and the Marvel Cinematic Universe: the fact that Universal, not Disney, held the rights to the character. Then a few months ago, Joe Quesada said that the rights had finally reverted to Marvel.

The ubiquitous Michael Fassbender will be joining fellow Irishmen Gabriel Byrne, Colin Farrell, Cillian Murphy and Domhnall Gleeson in Brendan Gleeson‘s directorial debut, a big-screen adaptation of Flann O’Brien‘s classic novel At Swim-Two-Birds.

Although I’ve never read the novel, that all-star cast seems like reason enough to get excited for the film. [ThePlaylist]
