If Iron Man is the bar they're setting...I can only imagine how the next batch of movies is going to be.

Marvel Entertainment released their first quarter report to its shareholders this morning to coincide with the announcement about the success this past weekend of Marvel Studios' first production Iron Man, which grossed an estimated $100.7 million domestically and over $200 million worldwide. The announcement included an update of Marvel Studios' feature film slate with the already-rumored Iron Man 2 announced for a release on April 30, 2010, followed by three more movies for the summers of '10 and '11. Matthew Vaughn's Thor is set for a release on June 4, 2010, and The First Avenger: Captain America (the working title) will kick off the summer of 2011 on May 6, followed by the highly-anticipated and foreshadowed The Avengers scheduled for July 2011. (Edgar Wright's Ant-Man is also listed as being in development with no release date set.)

    Iron Man was insane. best marvel flick ever with XMen 2 in 2nd place and the first Spidey flick in 3rd.

    But watch out for overkill- I don't know if the world is ready to see a viking running through manhattan, so Thor can be a bust unless they set it up like Pirates of The Caribbean. And Ant-Man WTF?!? I'd rather see another Punisher flick (the last one wasnt bad)

    Oh yeah and whatever happened to solo Wolverine flick?

    Marvel is now financing all of their movies themselves. Unfortunately, the film right of already farmed out books (X-Men, Wolverine, Hulk, SpiderMan, ETC) are now properties of the studios that made the films, and it's up to them to do anything or not.

    Marvel was releasing their line up only. Wolverine is still on the books, it's just not a Marvel thing anymore.

    Well, if they follow the Ultimate type storyline for Thor it would work out, with everybody more or less thinking he's some crazy person.

    Ahhhh makes sense Mike- thanks for the clear-up!

    They're, not their. They ARE!

    Jeeze, you couldn't make it seven words before screwing up?

    I apologize for the grammatical error. But thanks for taking the time to let us know the difference between They're, there, their...and anything else irrelevant to the thread.

    Actually the Hulk is Marvel property and they are working on repurchasing Xmen, the Punisher, and Spiderman

    Let's see how DC can rise up to Marvel's level.

    Besides Superman, Batman, and the Justice League movie...what else can they make?

    DC should make a Spectre movie.

    If done well, it could be awesome.
    With all of the darkness the Spectre was known for- ideally, Aparo-style.

    Shooting in Australia right now, scheduled to be released the first weekend of May 2009.

    The first Hulk was so bad. Not all marvel movies are good. Wolverine sounds like a good idea until you read that Sabertooth is in it. I don't know about you but I'ld rather not see an hour and a half of snarling, claws and fighting. Boring. Hopefully, Ironman wasn't a fluke, but geesh you just never know. Oh and could they find anyone more overexposed and boring to play Nick Fury....yawn.

    "Oh and could they find anyone more overexposed and boring to play Nick Fury....yawn."

    This Nick Fury is based on the Ultimates Nick Fury, who, is has been acknowledged by Marvel, is based on....Wait for it...Samuel L Jackson, so it is not ironic that he ends up with the role, modeled after him.

    I've heard talk of an Ironman cameo in the new Hulk flick, and other things in the works to, what I hope, is going to be a AVENGER/SHIELD mega super hero pic.

    But, let's let Marvel crawl before they walk. (I was tempted to use Tony Stark's line to Jarvis).
