The Marvel movie machine continues to march along with Thor: The Dark World arriving in theaters in November. A new extended trailer was shown during the ABC broadcast of Iron Man 2 last night with the promise of new footage to be shown during Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. next week. Be sure to sign up for a Fan Alert to know when your local theater has tickets available. Advanced ticketing is scheduled to begin soon.
But it's the man who started it all, Stan Lee, who delivered the biggest bit of Marvel news in an interview with Too Fab. Granted, Kevin Feige has the final say on Marvel movies, but considering Stan "The Man" created these characters, there has to be some merit to his words. So who can we expect to see take the leap from page to big screen in Marvel's movie plans?
Ant-Man and Guardians we know all about. Doctor Strange has been a pet project of Feige's so he's sure to turn up in one of these upcoming Marvel movies. Meanwhile, Black Panther has been rumored for years. Does Lee's comment mean this project is closer to happening than any of us expected?
Avengers writer-director Joss Whedon has been vocal about the lack of female superheroes. Might we see one of the Marvel female heroines get a stand-alone movie?
Scarlett Johansson currently plays the Russian spy turned S.H.I.E.L.D. superagent and has previously stated that people would want to see a stand-alone Widow movie.
Also, if you're wondering why Stan didn't cameo in The Wolverine, he says:
C'mon Bryan Singer! You've got time for a one-day reshoot.
What do you think of Stan's comments? Do you think there's any truth to them or is he just speaking in general terms of characters he wants to see on the big screen? Watch the video below for the full interview in which he talks about Ben Affleck as Batman among other things.
