Fanboy Fix: 'Watchmen' Sequel, 'Captain America' and 'Iron Man 2'

Is a 'Watchmen 2' In The Works?

Not anytime soon, so don't freak out. But freak out is what the fanboys did earlier today when it was announced that DC Comics was determined to begin shelling out sequels and spin-offs for their most successful graphic novel of all time. Naturally, folks immediately thought that meant there'd be a sequel to the movie as well, but Deadline Hollywood tells us (via an inside source) that "there is no truth to anything related to a movie sequel. Not a chance by a longshot."
'Watchmen 2?'
Before any film sequel hits, they first have to create successful sequels on the page. And if those sell like hotcakes, they may actually entertain another film – but seeing as the first one underperformed, it's not in Warner Bros. best interests to make another one.
Would you want a Watchmen sequel?
Captain America to be Cast Soon
Who will Marvel sign to play Captain America? That's the big question now as that much-anticipated Avengers movie draws closer and closer. Will it be Will Smith? Matthew McConaughey? Or someone with less star power? According to an interview with SciFi Wire, Captain America director Joe Johnston said that they're just about ready to pick their lead actor. He notes, "We have a very short list, but we're still juggling actors here. I'd say within the next couple of weeks we'll have ourselves a Captain America, I hope."
Who are the actors they're juggling? Bet you wish you knew. Here's where we hang tight and spit out the names of all the different men we'd like to see take on the role. (Why do I feel like Channing Tatum will end up being Captain America?)
'Iron Man 2' is a Prequel to The Incredible Hulk?
There's been some chatter online over the past 24 hours after Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau answered a fan's question on Twitter regarding whether Iron Man 2 takes place after The Incredible Hulk or before. Favreau answered "before", which could mean a number of different things. Seeing as Robert Downey Jr. makes a cameo at the end of Hulk to recruit General Ross to join his team, that would mean the events of Iron Man 2 take place prior to that – so perhaps we'll hear about the Hulk and find out what led Tony Stark to seek out General Ross in the first place.

Furthermore, it would appear as if they're setting it up so that at least one part of The Avengers will have to do with them tracking down Bruce Banner (aka The Hulk), who may or may not be the villain of the film. Here's hoping they connect those dots in Iron Man 2 – what do you think?
