The Avengers came out this weekend and absolutely obliterated that opening weekend record. It made over $200 million, so I hope you’re ready for a truck-load of more Marvel movies.
Like hey, how about Ant Man? I don’t think an Ant Man movie would work at all, but it’ll be interesting to see Marvel try.
It’ll also be interesting to see the 30 minutes of deleted and extended scenes on the DVD/Blu Ray of The Avengers. I have a feeling it’ll just slow the movie down and make the middle of it drag too much, but hey it should include a lot of fun dialogue.
Whedon’s failed Batman pitch probably would have resulted in a lot of awesome dialogue. Whedon gives a preview of it in an interview with GQ, in which he talks openly about his failed pitch and why Warner Bros. execs hated it.
The execs of Guillermo del Toro’s At the Mountains of Madness seem to be afraid of Prometheus, but that’s probably because, according to del Toro, that movie and Prometheus are pretty much the same thing. Whoops.
I hope Avatar 2, 3 and 4 aren’t pretty much the same thing over, and over and over again. You know, Pocahontas in Space? I love when John Smith realizes his people are destroying the natives so he defects to their side to help them. Wait…
Waiting is something you’ll have to do if you have the hankering for an Avengers-based video game. Ubisoft is developing a game called Avengers: Battle for Earth and it looks like it’s headed for consoles. Give us some 4-player co-op and it’s over.
Brad Bird’s time with the Mission Impossible franchise looks like it’s definitely over. He’s taken up a project with Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof called 1952. It’s really secretive but it’s probably about aliens or something.
By the by, former Doctor Who David Tennant may join the cast of Fast Six.
