Thread: Marvel Movies articles - Dr. Strange and Thor 2, Captain America 2's new director(s)

    Exclamation Marvel Movies articles - Dr. Strange and Thor 2, Captain America 2's new director(s)

    Marvel Confirms Doctor Strange Film As Possible Part Of Avengers 2

    Seems interesting. I wonder how they'll make it work realistically. However, seeing how well they did Thor, I have no worries.

    Thor 2 Script Reworked By Saving Private Ryan Writer Robert Rodat

    I haven’t seen SPR but it's been given nothing but praise, so he seems like a good choice.

    Chris Hemsworth Sad that Kenneth Brannagh won't return for Thor 2

    I think it's cool that they had such a nice bond. It's too bad he won't return to direct (I miss superhero trilogys by the same director), but I have faith in Alan Taylor.

    In March 2012, it was reported that Marvel has whittled down a field of ten directors to three potential candidates; George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau), F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job) and brothers Anthony and Joseph Russo (Community) to helm the sequel. In April 2012, Walt Disney Studios announced that it will release the sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger on April 4, 2014. Disney stated, "The second installment will pick-up where The Avengers leaves off, as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world."
    All of them seem like good choices, but I’m kind of hoping that George Nolfi gets it.

    Would love to see Strange directed by Del Toro, he'd be a perfect fit and bring a unique look to it.
    Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

    I couldn't agree more.

    I wish Cap 2 had Joe Johnston again. Like Richard Donner on Superman, he got the character. I'm afraid another director might not bring the character's sincerity through like Johnston.

    I would love to see a Del Toro Dr Strange movie, a cameo or team up in Avengers 2 would be nice, but not as a member of the Avengers. Besides, there's always the possibility of Defenders movie

    Agreed. I don't understand why they wouldn't stick with Joe Johnston after he gave the such a perfect movie.

    Updates!!

    Thor 2:
    Before the release of The Avengers and before Patty Jenkins was replaced as the director of the sequel, Gregg stated "I’m going to be speaking with her very soon. And I’m looking forward to it because I’m a big fan of hers and I thought the movie she made was great."
    In May 2012, Mads Mikkelsen began talks to play one of the villains in Thor 2. The same day, Deadline Hollywood reported that Anthony Hopkins, who played Odin in the first film, was committed to returning in the sequel. At the end of the month, Disney moved up the release date for Thor 2 a week ahead of the previous date to November 8, 2013.
    In June 2012, Joshua Dallas announced that he will not be reprising the role of Fandral due to his commitment on the television show, Once Upon a Time. The same day, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Marvel was eyeing Zachary Levi to replace Dallas. Levi was originally up for the role in the first film but had to bow out due his commitment on Chuck. Later in June, Stellan Skarsgård confirmed that he would be returning, stating "I will try to combine Thor 2 which starts in August and goes to the end of December with the new Lars Von Trier film".

    Captain America 2:
    In April 2012, Walt Disney Studios announced that it will release the sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger on April 4, 2014. Disney stated, "The second installment will pick-up where … The Avengers leaves off, as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world." Later in April, it was reported that F. Gary Gray withdrew his name from consideration, choosing instead to direct the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton for New Line Cinema. In June 2012, the Russo brothers entered negotiations to direct the sequel. It was also reported that Samuel L. Jackson would return as S.H.I.E.L.D. leader Nick Fury.

    Iron Man 3:
    Before the release of The Avengers Gregg stated, "I'm talking to them about doing Iron Man 3 right now, and somebody's going 'Maybe Agent Coulson should die', and I'm like, 'Hey, hey, hey! This is the best job I've ever had! Stop talking about killing Agent Coulson off'."
    Jessica Chastain was in discussions for a role in the film but bowed out due to scheduling conflicts. A post-credits scene directed by Edgar Wright may be in production, where Ant-Man confronts Chen Lu. Cobie Smulders will reprise her role as Maria Hill.

    Ant-Man:
    Kevin Feige confirmed that Henry Pym is referred to in the film Thor as the friend that Dr. Selvig e-mails that had previous "experience" with S.H.I.E.L.D., though his name was cut out of the scene.
    In May, 2012, a "teaser" image of the movie was presented via Twitter by writer and director Edgar Wright. Feige stated as well that the movie was "as close as it’s ever been". On June 28, 2012, Wright Directed a Test Reel for the film.

    Dr. Strange:
    In June 2010, Marvel Studios hired Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to write Dr. Strange. While promoting for Transformers: Dark of the Moon, actor Patrick Dempsey indicated he was lobbying to play the title character.

    Patrick Dempsey could work as Dr. Strange. He plays overly cocky really well, and if they stick to the comic origin with Strange being an over-confident surgeon, you'll have a weird hook-up for Dempsey's "Grey's Anatomy" fanbase.

    Thanks for the updates! I'm still missing Joe Johnston on Cap. I don't understand why he isn't involved.

    I wonder why Kenneth Branagh isn't returning for Thor 2? He's my favorite actor and a damn good director as well. Bummer
