Joss Whedon to direct Marvel’s Avengers film?!

oh way kewl…The Avengers ! Here is my fave comic of that series – I still have it , 1977 baby- a cool 30 cents…:0)

SciFiWire:

Deadline Hollywood is confirming that rumor that Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon is in final talks to direct Marvel’s proposed The Avengers movie. 

The report confirms a rumor first reported by IESB.net on April 1 that Whedon was edging out Clash of the Titans director Louis Leterrier to direct the superhero saga:

I’m told Marvel Studios is in final negotiations for Buffy the Vampire Slayer series architect Joss Whedon to direct Marvel Studios’ The Avengers. That’s the fast-tracked film that would amount to an all-star team of Marvel superheros, including Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), as well as SHIELD leader Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Other signature superheros will likely be involved, but I’ve listed the actors in active superhero duty.Whedon has been rumored for this job for awhile, and is high on the fanboy wish-list….

…As for Scarlett Johansson‘s Natasha Romanoff a.k.a Black Widow, in the comics her character is a friend and a foe of Tony’s at various points. So it remains unclear which incarnation we will get in “IM2,” but I’m hoping against hope it’s the evil one…

Ryan Reynolds talks Deadpool

Our previous posts on Deadpool here. MiM cannot WAIT for the film!!! FD- MiM are DIS shareholders, which will shortly include Marvel characters in its stable, oh yeah baby 🙂

FemaleFirst.uk:

You’ve been a fan of Deadpool for a long time. How much did you want the part?

I’ve been a fan of Deadpool for almost a decade. I was first introduced to it by my brother. Then I gradually followed it for a few years after that. I saw one of the comics a few years ago where Deadpool referred to himself as a cross between a Sharpe and Ryan Reynolds.

I just thought that was the coolest thing I had ever heard. So when I heard about the movie I knew I was going to do the film, even if I had to kill some studio head’s pets. A few years ago I was talking to Fox about possibly doing a Deadpool standalone movie.

I think they found it to be a little too complicated to try to tackle. Specifically because he’s a cult favorite. He’s not a mainstream character. So what better way to introduce him than in this movie?

I heard about six months before this went into production that they were thinking about putting Deadpool into this movie, but it wasn’t sure. Then kind of at the last minute they called and said, ‘We’re doing it! Are you in?’ And I said, ‘Well, of course I am, but I’m starring in two other movies, I don’t know how I’m going to do it.’

So they shot the whole film, and in the reshoots they shot me for the first time. This was why people thought they were adding more Deadpool, but they weren’t, I hadn’t shot any footage up to that point because I was too busy making these other films. Which are good problems to have.

Any idea who wrote that line about you in the comic?

You know, I don’t know who wrote that particular issue. It’s had multiple writers over the years. I’ve got the panel on my wall in a frame, maybe I should find out. And thank him. Or her. You never know, equal opportunity.

You take on many diverse roles. How do you decide what you’re going to do?

I’ve been lucky. I can go from one genre to another and it’s not a huge issue. People used to do that. Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant, they’d jump all over the place. I feel Hugh does that pretty well.

He’s as comfortable on a Broadway stage as he is with claws and a tank top. Mostly I just consider myself lucky. I don’t have a specific rhyme or reason as to why I think it is, but it’s probably because I haven’t had astronomical success in one genre. If I had done Spider-Man, it would probably be tougher to jump into Adventureland or something.

Do you have a preference towards a specific type of film?

No. I love movies, man. Totally. In some ways it’s easier to do something like this than it is a comedy. Because for a comedy I feel like you need a whole orchestra around you. There’s a timing, a musicality to it. It’s a science, and there’s something very interesting about that. But this is just fun.

They taped your mouth up at the end, right?

Yeah, I wasn’t happy about that.

But I’ll bet everyone else was!

I think so! It certainly served the story. But that is where they detoured a bit from the origins. I mean, Deadpool is the ‘Merc with the Mouth.’ It took a long time. It took four hours just to get it on, and four more hours to get it off. For some people, that’s an entire work day.

People that wear loafers, typically. But it sucked to eat lunch and that sort of thing. I would snort a steak. I would just lay it down like it was the 80’s and go for it. No, we’d have to cut it open and it required a PA to feed it to me.

How many days of shooting was that?

In the Deadpool makeup it was a couple of weeks. My skin was not loving that after a while. It’s a pretty awful experience getting that on and off each day. If we ever did a Deadpool movie, the mask would relieve some of that issue, but I would never want to be in that makeup more than three days in a row.

MiM here- they ARE doing that movie and he HAS been signed 🙂 see this blurb from REELZ:

Yesterday, more X-film news was spread via twitter thanks to Rob Liefeld, the co-creator of Marvel Comics’ Deadpool, including the fact that the “Merc with a Mouth” will appear in costume and that Ryan Reynolds, who recently signed on to play Green Lantern in a competing production, will be revisiting his X-Men Origins: Wolverine role of Wade “Deadpool” Wilson in the solo film.

Great Deadpool movie meeting! Lauren Schuler Donner and her team are headed in the right direction!

Deadpool movie checklist- DP in costume-check! Breaking 4th wall-check! Loads of killing-double check!

Deadpool movie- YES! Ryan Reynolds is on board!!!

Liefeld also broke the news that another one of his X-Men creations, Cable, might receive his big screen debut.

Also excited to discuss possibilities of Cable in future X-films!!!

Marvel: "Models, Inc. - Loaded Gunn"

Fun stuff, Tim looks fab in graphic art form

NYDailyNews – Gatecrasher:

Tim Gunn knows how to “make it work,” even when he’s a cartoon character.

The “Project Runway” judge is the subject of a brand-new Marvel comic book called the “Loaded Gunn” – out on Sept. 10 – in which he has to stop a villain from crashing an elite event at the New York Museum of Fashion. He’ll team up with fellow superhero Iron Man to protect the world of couture, fighting one bad guy at a time.

The comic book, which is included in a series called “Models, Inc.,” is one of four issues that will make its debut specially for Fall 2009 Fashion Week….

Report: Ryan Reynolds lands Green Lantern role….

green_lantern_corps

Our previous posts on Ryan as Deadpool here and here

SciFiWire has it from THR:

A day after The Hollywood Reporter said that three actors were vying for the coveted title role in The Green Lantern, it reports that one has prevailed: Ryan Reynolds, whom Warner Brothers has settled on as its choice to play Hal Jordan. The film is being directed by Martin Campbell and produced by Donald De Line and Greg Berlanti.

Here’s what the trade paper reported Friday night:

Reynolds and his camp entered negotiations for the part Friday, after the studio held two rounds of screen tests, along with actors Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto. Justin Timberlake also did a screen test.The studio had holding options on the actors, but, except for Reynolds, those expired Monday. Reynolds’ option would have expired end of day Friday.

…He recently appeared as Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and the character is in development for a spinoff movie. Fans of the Blade franchise also recall Reynolds role as Hannibal King.

NYDN:

…The story of an intergalactic lawman armed with a green power ring,”Green Lantern,” is slated to be directed by Martin Campbell and scheduled to start filming in January. That would potentially put Reynolds in the strange position of potentially facing off against himself at the multiplex with both potential blockbusters scheduled for 2011.

Cooper had been coming off his breakthrough role in the box office hit, “The Hangover,” which grossed $210 million and counting for Warner Brothers. Timberlake is no slouch, himself, with turns in movies like “Alpha Dog” and “The Love Guru,” but news of his screen test for the Green Lantern movie drew online grumbling from comic book fans.

But neither packed the box office punch that Reynolds has enjoyed recently, with “The Proposal” leaping over the $100 million mark in a single bound and “Wolverine” hauling in $178.5 million at the box office this summer….
