Marvel Musings #3 (miniature edition)

So it's official - Shane Black IS directing Iron Man 3.

This on top of Darren Aronofsky directing The Wolverine, a "standalone movie" modelled on the classic Japan-set Frank Miller run.

This on top of Marc Webb's webslinger reboot being officially entitled The Amazing Spider-Man. And taking it back to good ol' homemade mechanical webshooters.

This on top of Joss Whedon directing The Avengers.

This on top of a summer that will give us X-Men: First Class, Captain America, and Thor...

All that on top of Green Lantern, The Dark Knight Rises, The Man of Steel, and - yes - the return of small-screen Wonder Woman.

Anyone thinking superhero movies might be played out... stay the hell away from the cinemas. Leave the seats free for all us true believers.

Excelsior, motherfucker.

  1. Excelsior indeed.

    I really hope these movies turn out good, especially considering previous works about the characters.

    I think most of us want to forget the TV version of Thor that melt the Hulk or Captain America played by J.D Salinger's grand-son.

    Color me optimistic and excited.
