Comic-Con: Marvel Animation Panel Teases HULK and AVENGERS Series, Plus Spider-Ham

Reboots have been all the rage in Hollywood for years, but until this morning I don’t think I had ever seen or heard of a reboot of a Comic-Con panel.  Last time on Marvel Animation Panel, Jeph Loeb took to the stage and made hammy joke after hammy joke as he showed off previews of a slew of upcoming Marvel-branded animated programming for Disney’s popular XD lineup.  This year he returned to the Con and brought pretty much the exact same shows, in almost the exact same order.  Only now, there’s footage.  And as with the new The Amazing Spider-Man film, even without the novelty of a first time experience, this reboot panel was better than the first take.

Loeb showed off footage from Marvel Mashups, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., Avenger’s Assemble, various Marvel Knights projects and even a full episode of Ultimate Spider-Man.  Hit the jump for details on the footage, a recap of the panel and Spider-Ham!

Not content merely to dominate the box office and the comic book world, Marvel is now setting its sights on TV. On the heels of Disney XD’s announcement that the Ultimate Spider-Man (the network’s highest rated animated series) would be picked up for a second season, the new Marvel Animation Studios is gearing up for an ambitious lineup of comic-inspired series, including Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. and Marvel’s Avengers Assemble.

Marvel Releases THE AVENGERS Movie Timeline

by     Posted 1 year, 335 days ago

avengers-timeline-slice

On the seventh day, Joss Whedon created The Avengers.  Marvel has released a new infographic movie timeline that highlights specific super-heroic instances in time and places them in the context of The Avengers and the individual movies that built up to it.  While The Avengers franchise no doubt revolves around Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, the new infographic has made him into a pseudo-Christ figure by demarcating the timeline with BIM (“Before Iron Man”) and AIM (“After Iron Man”).  While it’s true that Iron Man had more movies than the rest of The Avengers (excluding 2003′s Hulk, which the timeline wisely forgets), I’d much rather see the scenes relative to one Special Agent Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) or even the beloved Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg).  Hit the jump to check it out.

HULK May Be on ABC Next Year; THE PUNISHER TV Series Not Moving Forward at Fox

hulk-tv-series-abc

It’s upfronts week, and we’ve already gotten a look at the upcoming fall schedules for NBC, Fox, and ABC.  However, we’ve now got word on a couple of comic book series that weren’t on any of said schedules.  A Hulk television series has been in development at ABC for a while with Guillermo del Toro onboard as executive producer.  ABC president Paul Lee had this to say regarding Hulk:

“Hulk is in development.  It wasn’t going to be ready this season, but we hope it’s going to be ready for next season.”

With word that Marvel might be planning a new Hulk movie with Mark Ruffalo following the stellar reaction to the character/Ruffalo’s performance in The Avengers, many wondered what this meant for the TV series.  It sounds like ABC is very much still game for the show, so I wouldn’t be surprised if a Hulk movie is held until the studio sees how the TV series fares.  Hit the jump for more, including word on The Punisher TV series.

You can breathe a sigh of relief: The Avengers has finally hit theaters.  This means that: A) You’ve probably seen it; B) You no longer need fear the spoilers; C) You only have a bit of post-opening weekend marketing to suffer through and D) You can look forward to the summer’s other big releases.  As we look back on the last few months of The Avengers news, let us look further into the past to dig up some Public Service Announcements from yesteryear.  You’d think the history of Marvel Comics and cartoons would be littered with PSAs, but I found them to be a bit on the thin side.  Worry not, I’ve assembled the best Avengers PSAs of video and print that I could find.  Hit the jump to check them out and click here to see all of our previous PSA postings.

Mark-Ruffalo-The-Avengers-interview-slice

With The Avengers opening next weekend in North America, Marvel/Disney recently held a massive press junket in Los Angeles and I was able to interview most of the cast, director Joss Whedon, and Kevin Feige (Marvel Studios President).   Every day this week I’ll be posting a new video interview from the junket.  Yesterday was Tom Hiddleston (Loki), and today I’ve got Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk).

During the interview, Ruffalo talked about his reaction to reading The Avengers script for the first time, deleted scenes, and how funny the movie is.  In addition, Ruffalo revealed he signed a six picture deal with Marvel and he’s excited to keep making movies with them after seeing The Avengers.  Hit the jump to watch.

Is Marvel Planning a Standalone Hulk Movie for 2015 After All?

It’s officially Avengers week, and fans aplenty are counting down the hours until the midnight reveal of Joss Whedon’s superhero team-up pic on Thursday/Friday at midnight.  Not only is this the first time fans get to see all their favorite Marvel superheroes come together onscreen, but we’ll get our first look at Mark Ruffalo’s iteration of the Hulk.  Early word on the film has had many singling out Ruffalo’s performance, and the Hulk character in general, as one of the highlights of the film.

Most critics and fans have been singing high praises of Whedon’s take on the character, yet when Steve asked Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige if a new standalone Hulk movie was in the cards, Feige claimed there were no plans at the moment.  However, it appears the overwhelmingly positive reaction may have convinced Marvel to change their tune, because another studio exec recently said we might see a standalone Hulk flick as soon as 2015.  Hit the jump for more.

Kevin Feige Talks THOR 2, IRON MAN 3, CAPTAIN AMERICA 2, the AVENGERS Sequel, 2014/2015 Releases, and More!

With Marvel and Disney’s The Avengers opening around the world in the coming weeks, last night was the world premiere in Hollywood and it was also the first time members of the press were shown the film.  As you may have already read on my Twitter feed, I loved it and think Joss Whedon delivered a movie that both fans and casual moviegoers are going to love.  Also, it’s really funny and it has the best action of any Marvel movie thus far.

Anyway, just an hour ago I got to sit down with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.  Since I already posted an in depth conversation with him when I visited the set of The Avengers last year, I decided to use my limited time to discuss Marvel’s future projects like Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Captain America 2, the Avengers sequel and whether Joss Whedon is signed to come back, what movies are coming in 2014 and 2015, Ant-Man, Dr. Strange, if Marvel is making an animated movie, another Hulk movie, and so much more.  Hit the jump for more.

New Look at The Hulk from THE AVENGERS Extended Trailer

by     Posted 2 years, 54 days ago

avengers-hulk-slice

We’re inching closer towards the release of Marvel’s The Avengers and along the way, Marvel’s been dropping images, TV spots, and trailers from the film, with a couple of high-resolution images released a few days ago. While I think most would agree that the Super Bowl trailer was the best yet, many have been eager to get a really good look at the Hulk. Today, a clearer image of Angry Mark Ruffalo popped up via a screen grab from the extended trailer. Naturally, he looks a bit upset, but I think the CG here is done really well. The character was rendered using motion-capture so Hulk should have a pretty natural feel to him. Obviously the final word will come when we see him in extended sequences in the film, but this image is a good sign of things to come.

Hit the jump to check out the image. The film also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, and Samuel L. JacksonThe Avengers opens in 3D on May 4th.

NY Comic Con: Lou Ferrigno Interview – Opens Up About THE AVENGERS, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and CHUCK

by     Posted 3 years, 190 days ago

Lou Ferrigno will always be tied to The Hulk.  It makes sense.  The former champion bodybuilder has played the character on and off since he first wore the green makeup in the 1977 TV film The Incredible Hulk and the series that followed from 1978-82.  The 58-year-old is set to lend his voice to the superhero again for the highly anticipated feature adaptation of The Avengers.

Ferrigno filled Collider in on all of his projects at New York’s Comic Con where he’ll be signing autographs all weekend.  Hit the jump for the interview’s full audio and transcript, along with an update on The Avengers, his take on the most recent film adaptations of The Hulk, the actors who played his famous alter-ego, good news about his return to Chuck and his surprise pick to play Superman.

Hulk to be a Motion Capture Performance in THE AVENGERS

by     Posted 3 years, 206 days ago

Here’s some cool news for everyone that’s anticipating The Avengers.  Mark Ruffalo has revealed that unlike the previous Hulk movies that featured the creature as an all CGI creation, Ruffalo will actually be playing the Hulk in The Avengers as he’s going to do the performance through motion-capture performance.   We’ve seen the technology used in such films as Lord of the Rings and Avatar, and it’ll be interesting to see a Hulk that is an actor’s creation and not made in some computer.  Hit the jump to read Ruffalo’s quotes about playing the Hulk and Bruce Banner.

Mark Ruffalo Signs On to Play Hulk in THE AVENGERS

by     Posted 3 years, 269 days ago

Surprising no one that has kept up with the near Marvel snafu that was the nixing of Edward Norton, Deadline reports that Mark Ruffalo has signed on the dotted line to play Hulk in the upcoming mega-film The Avengers. Of course, nothing is official, but tomorrow is the day that many say we will see the full cast of The Avengers appear in a “surprise” reveal at San Diego Comic-Con. Yesterday, Joss Whedon confirmed that he will direct The Avengers during his panel with J.J. Abrams at the Con. The dominoes are all lined up for a huge event at Marvel’s big day in Hall H.

Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige Confirms Hulk WILL Be in THE AVENGERS

by     Posted 4 years, 81 days ago

slice_incredible_hulk_movie_image_01.jpg

Speaking with SFX Magazine [via WorldOfSuperheroes.com], Kevin Feige, President of Production for Marvel Studios, confirmed that the Hulk will be in their epic superhero crossover film, The Avengers.  Says Feige:

“Its fun now and we are introducing some new characters in these films…But its not about cramming in lots of new people…that’s sort of the cardinal sin of the sequel, adding too many characters….My only concern is that when we launch a franchise…whichever character’s franchise that may be, it should stand on its own two feet. With Iron Man being the first one out of the gate, thank goodness that’s what happened. Everyone loved it. Its our job to do the same with Thor and Captain America two years from now, so by the time The Avengers comes in 2012 its not just a team super hero movie with a bunch of characters with powers, its three people, four including Hulk, five including Nick Fury-who you have seen before in other movies, coming together for the very first time.”

The Hulk’s involvement was in doubt because both Ang Lee’s Hulk (2003) and Louis Leterrier’s The Incredible Hulk (2008) flopped at the box office.  Additionally, Edward Norton has appeared ambivalent about returning to play the character in an Avengers movie.  Now that we know we’re getting the Hulk, the question becomes who will play him and will the character smash or not (my guess: smash).

Hit the jump for what Feige had to say about bringing the fanciful Thor into the real world.

Concept Art From Marvels Marvel Super Heroes Theme Park (2).jpg

Before the credit crisis and the deal with Disney, United Arab Emirate-based Al Ahli Group and Marvel Entertainment announced a deal to bring many of Marvel’s biggest characters to Dubai for a brand new theme park that would focus on the world famous characters.  The plan was for character themed rides based on The Fantastic Four, Hulk, Iron Man, X-Men, Silver Surfer, and Spider-Man.  While I have no idea if the deal with Disney has changed the deal, or if Dubai’s financial troubles will derail the park, I do know what it might look like!  That’s because concept art has hit the net and you can check out some great looking images after the jump.  With rides like “Flying with Spidey”, “Fantasticar” and “X-Men: Danger Room”, Marvel fanboys might be flying across the world to check this place out!
