Marvel Characters That Could Be Movie
What people forget is that while the WB flexes their muscle, Marvel still has a ridiculously untapped listing of characters, both over at Disney as well as other studios like Fox, Universal and Sony.Marvel’s always going to outnumber and outmuscle them in some ways. The WB can only work on making their movies successful on their own terms.

Kevin Feige Suggests "Django Unchained" May Have Killed A '70s Black Panther movie
Today's premiere of the third trailer for "Iron Man 3" (which starts hitting theaters around the world next month) has given us our best glimpse so far at Marvel's Phase Two -- the run of solo movies, including "Thor: The Dark World," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Guardians of the Galaxy," that will bridge the gap between last year's mega-hit "The Avengers" and its 2015 sequel. But clearly, the comic-company-turned-studio have plans beyond that, and assuming the films continue to be successful, we'll continue to see other side projects like the upcoming "S.H.I.E.L.D" TV show, and others besides.

Despite the fact that “The Avengers 2” doesn’t even have a script and that Marvel hasn’t completely nailed down their Phase 2 plans yet, there are already rumors about the new characters that would appear in the film, and even about who will play them. So grab some salt and take a seat while we talk about stuff that’s not even close to happening.

For a major studio who do nothing but make blockbuster tentpole movies, Marvel do, to their credit, take their fare share of risks. Casting Robert Downey Jr, an actor coming out of a decade or so of drug and alcohol addiction, and whose last film as a lead, "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" made under $5 million at the box office, as the lead in "Iron Man" was certainly a risk, but one that paid off handsomely.

Update: Variety has confirmed that Marvel is moving ahead with "Guardians Of The Galaxy" for a May 16, 2014 release instead of "Black Panther" which was also under consideration. Nicole Perlman, part of the Disney screenwriting program, has penned a script that has apparently been well received by the studio. Don't expect much at Comic-Con about the movie as it's expected that Marvel will focus on "Iron Man 3," but with two years to go, there is lots of time for the studio to carefully roll out their plans for 'Guardians.'

For all their success so far, the Marvel movies have, aside from a few smallish parts, been a pretty lilywhite affair to date: only Samuel L Jackson was a significant minority presence in "The Avengers." But signs are that the studio aren't going to keep that up for too long: yesterday, it was reported that the company are actively moving ahead with a movie about "Black Panther," the African prince-turned-crimefighter, and are targeting a release in 2014 or 2015.

With Marvel's upcoming slate featuring a trio of sequels -- "Iron Man 3," "Thor 2" and a follow-up to "Captain America: The First Avenger" -- speculation has been running high and wide about what their next standalone movie character might be. We're not going to run through them all again, but remember, it was just a couple of weeks ago when Marvel honcho Kevin Feige said there were two more unannounced movies in the works. And if this report is accurate, you can probably knock off one of them.
