‘Avengers’ On The Way

avengers.gifMarvel Studios is starting to prep one of their next projects, The Avengers, and Zak Penn, writer of the upcoming The Incredible Hulk, is slated to write it. The Avengers is a team comprised of a-list heroes — Spiderman, Wolverine, Iron Man, etc. depending on which incarnation you’re referring to — and is Marvel’s answer to DC Comics Justice League — Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc. Speaking of Justice League, Warner Bros. has been working on bringing that series to the big screen, too. In fact, Kieran Mulroney and Michele Mulroney have already submitted a draft and it’s been given the thumbs up.

One major issue for both parties is deciding which superheroes to include, since there have been many versions of each group over the years. There is also a question as to whether the studios will try to bring the big name stars who are currently portraying some of these heroes — Christian Bale as Batman, Brandon Routh as Superman, Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man, etc. — into these super team movies. I think that would probably be the smartest idea for both movies, but regardless it is exciting to hear news about both projects.
