If you don't know the name Adam Buxton, Edgar Wright sure does. The Brit comedian and actor has appeared in "Shaun Of The Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," as well as "Paul" (unofficially produced by Wright) and "Attack The Block" (directed Joe Cornish, with whom he performs comedy with as Adam and Joe). So, it's safe to say that Wright and Buxton have a pretty damn good friendship, though it looks like their latest effort is likely causing the red phone to ring off the hook at the Marvel legal department.

Ever since it was revealed that Terrence Howard wouldn't be reprising his role in "Iron Man 2," ultimately replaced by Don Cheadle, there has been plenty of ink spilled about why the actor was bounced from the Marvel universe. Way back in 2008, EW reported that circa "Iron Man," it was Howard -- not comeback kid Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow or Jeff Bridges -- who was actually the best paid actor on that set. The first one to sign on, Marvel wasn't able to renegotiate his deal, but perhaps found another workaround. Rumors suggested that Howard was being difficult on set and/or the filmmakers weren't happy with his performance, leading to early drafts for "Iron Man 2" minimizing his participation. So when Marvel circled back to the actor for "Iron Man 2" with a much lower offer than the first movie, well, we'll let Howard take it from here....

Marvel Signs WWE's Dave Bautista for 'Guardians of the Galaxy'
You need a big man to play a big superhuman character. And while Marvel Studios reportedly flirted with "Conan The Barbarian"/"Game Of Thrones" star Jason Momoa, the role has gone to someone else. THR reports that WWE wrestler Dave Bautista has closed his deal to play Drax The Destroyer in their upcoming adaptation of "Guardians Of The Galaxy." Other actors up for the role apparently included Isaiah Mustafa and Patrick Wade.

Man, for a property and movie of which there are currently "no plans," it seems folks just can't stop talking about the prospect and possibility of a "Hulk" film and what exactly it should be. While rumors have been flying about about a possible "Planet Hulk" and "World War Hulk" based movie, current Marvel godfather Joss Whedon has called them nonsense and as he reveals in a longer statement today, getting Bruce Banner right on the big screen is a challenge.

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.

Update (03/05/13): To add a further nail to the coffin, Joss Whedon was asked by IGN during a junket for "Much Ado About Nothing" as to whether it was true that "World War Hulk" and "Planet Hulk" would provide inspiration for future Marvel movies. The director responded "Well, I"m not really supposed to comment, but no, that's nonsense." There are denials aimed at keeping things vague, and then there are denials because something's just untrue, and this seems to be the latter. As you were.

Rumor: Marvel's Plans For A New 'Hulk' Movie Include Storylines From 'Planet Hulk' & 'World War Hulk'

Of the many things that contributed to the billion-dollar success of Marvel's "The Avengers" last year, one of the most obvious was the reboot of The Hulk. Now inhabited by Mark Ruffalo, the character was more tortured than ever before (if that was even possible), but also more funny, instantly charming fans and newcomers alike around the world with little more than the words: "Hulk smash." And while a standalone movie seemed like a no-brainer, last spring fans were told that the earliest they would see that happen is 2015.Additionally, while a TV series for the character was teased at the time as well, Guillermo Del Toro recently suggested those plans are on hold for now. So what gives? Well, if these rumors are close to correct, The Hulk will be a major player in Phase Two and Phase Three of Marvel's rollout.
