TUESDAY, MAY 8

CAPTAIN AMERICA 2---Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige commented on the Captain America sequel and the absence of the Skrulls in THE AVENGERS, "IRON MAN 3 is a very singular Tony Star story. As is THOR 2. Cap, who is stuck in the modern day with no friends or family, there will be some revelations of who is still alive from his days in WWII, but S.H.I.E.L.D. and Nick Fury are kind of his confidants right now. So of all these movies, CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 will be most closely associated with AVENGERS." Feige explained why Loki is the villain instead of the Skrulls in THE AVENGERS, "Yes, Skrulls have a big connection to Fantastic Four so there are some contractual limitations about who can do what when it comes to Skrulls. Though that is not why we didn't do Skrulls. There is already enough going on in this movie."
Also, Jessica Chastain said she won't be in IRON MAN 3 due to schedule problems.

TEN---Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in this movie about an elite DEA squad that raids a drug cartel safe house to keep the millions in drug money for themselves. After stashing the cash, they are being killed off one by one.

AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS---Guillermo del Toro's movie based on the HP Lovecraft horror story would have starred Tom Cruise, but it was canceled due to a huge budget and its R-rating. Del Toro had worked on the project for a decade, but he said there's no chance it will be resurrected in the future due to its similarities with Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS, "Same premise. Scenes that would be almost identical. Both movies seem to share identical set pieces and the exact same big revelation (twist) at the end. I won't spoil it."

DREDD---new photo of Lena Headey as the villain named Ma-Ma and her comments on the role, “She’s a prostitute who then kills her pimp and takes over his drug-running business. And Ma-Ma is a bit of a man-hater.” Karl Urban stars as Judge Dredd.




THE CLIENT LIST---Lifetime renewed the Jennifer Love Hewitt series.




HAWAII FIVE-O---the season finale on May 14 has McGarrett returning (Alex O'Loughlin was in drug rehab) and pits him against Wo Fat and the Japanese mob. Daniel Dae Kim said a major cast member will be killed off, “The repercussions of that death are something that all the team members have to deal with. The death is in the thick of things and it’s definitely a spring board for other events.”




REVOLUTION---new NBC sci fi series from Eric Kripke (SUPERNATURAL) about a group of survivors after "all forms of energy mysteriously cease to exist". Giancarlo Esposito (BREAKING BAD) and Andrea Roth (RINGER) star.
NBC also ordered new sitcoms HELP ME starring Anne Heche as a woman who performs miracles and THE NEW NORMAL about a gay couple and their female surrogate. Other sitcoms ordered are 1600 PENN about the First Family starring Jenna Elfman and Bill Pullman and ANIMAL PRACTICE a sitcom about a veterinarian who loves animals and hates people. NBC is negotiating for 30 ROCK to return for Season 7 which will be its last.




FRINGE---the season finale's Part 1 had the highest ratings since March 25, 2011 with a 2.4 rating/5 share which is a 20% increase over the previous episode. However, NBC's AWAKE had a dismal 1.5 rating /2 share.

OCTOMOM---Nadya Suleman's representative confirmed the mother of 14 completed a day of filming a porn movie to help pay for her financial difficulties.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY---James Cromwell (LA CONFIDENTIAL, STAR TREK: FIRST CONTACT) has joined the cast.

NIGHTS OF CABIRIA---remake of the Oscar-winning 1958 Federico Fellini movie about a Rome prostitute will star Juliette Lewis.

NIGHT OF THE LIVING---new Seth Grahame-Smith (DARK SHADOWS, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER) movie underway with Tim Burton which may be a zombie movie in which humans are the threat to zombies. He is also working on BEETLEJUICE 2 with Burton and a new movie titled UNHOLY NIGHT..

THE MONKEY WRENCH GANG---movie underway based on the novel in which an ex-Green Beret, a feminist saboteur, a Mormon wilderness guide and a libertarian doctor team up to protect the Southwest desert from industrial developers.

AN ORDINARY MAN---movie underway starring Brendan Gleeson and Abbie Cornish which involves a fugitive war criminal and his maid.

Still doesn't make any sense. When all forms of energy cease to exist (what does that even mean?), there are no survivors.

I enjoyed Captain America, but I think that's becouse it was set in the 40's & had that great Republic Serials vibe (& that went through the baddies weapons design), but the next one would be set in modern day, & I'd think would lose a lot of the magic.

MASTADGE:

I posted this originally on my alma master's message board, which is known for being an engineering school.....and they were asking the same question.

I think it's been reported that the next one will be set both in the present day and in the 40s. Presumably there'll be a WWII adventure running parallel to a present day adventure.

So Marvel has to negotiate rights with itself to utilize Skrull stuff?

Or did they sub-license/parcel out various bits to different production companies, with certain "Marvel elements" reserved for this or for that property? Sounds slightly absurd.

Fox has the Skrulls license ( when Johnny became the "Super Skrull" in FF2)

I think it's about what comes tied up in what property. For example, Sony has Spider-Man, so we're not going see Spider-Woman in an Avengers film, even though she has been an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and an Avenger, since she's too much part of the Spider-Man "family" of titles. Fox owns X-Men, so we're not going to see Beast or Wolverine in The Avengers 2 even though both of them have been Avengers. Conversely, even though Ms. Marvel has some ties to the X-Men, if she ever shows up in the movies it will be in an Avengers film and not an X-Men, because she's just part of that family. There are very few heroes or villains whom it would be difficult to establish which family of titles they "belong" to.

It's all because they sold off film/TV rights to certain characters and properties years/decades ago -- the ones who still control rights outside Marvel are, I believe, Sony (Spider-Man, Ghost Rider) and Fox (X-Men, Daredevil, Fantastic Four). Universal used to have the Hulk, but Marvel bought the Hulk back after Universal didn't make a sequel to the Ang Lee film, enabling Marvel themselves to produce Incredible Hulk and bring the character back into their own stable so to speak. (There's a Del Toro produced Hulk TV series which is set up at ABC/Disney, so I'm guessing Universal has nothing to do with the Hulk anymore).

For the rest, as long as the characters remain active by the studios in some form (another sequel, a reboot, a TV series, whatever) they'll retain their license, which is the sole reason Ghost Rider 2 was made.

As was mentioned before, when you say "X-Men," that also carries an awful lot of characters along with it -- good guys, bad guys, supporting characters, etc. Certain characters were established in certain comics, and the film rights to the respective property will include those characters. They're not picking and choosing certain elements to license out here and there.

HAWAII FIVE-O---the season finale on May 14 has McGarrett returning (Alex O'Loughlin was in drug rehab) .

I miss Jack Lord and this is just one other reason why.

Why has no British broadcaster bought this yet? I mean, they show 2 Broke Girls over here...


HAWAII FIVE-O---the season finale on May 14 has McGarrett returning (Alex O'Loughlin was in drug rehab) and pits him against Wo Fat and the Japanese mob. Daniel Dae Kim said a major cast member will be killed off

I second the comment about Jack Lord. Also, if they send Kono the way of Chin Ho (original variety) there'll be some very upset people out there.

REVOLUTION---new NBC sci fi series from Eric Kripke (SUPERNATURAL)

And J.J. Abrams. Cue the hatred in three... two... one...

The biggest problem with the first Cap was that Joe Johnstone is such a journeyman director it never really dipped into the Raiders/ Republic serials the way it should have done.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the film but it wasn't great just ok. In fact I actually much preferred Thor despite the fact I always hated him as a comic book character and loved Cap. Branagh made an uplifting, heroic movie which sadly Johnstone wasn't able to do.

And it wasn't helped by Silvestri's lacklustre score. Yes, the march is ok but the rest of it is just meh. His Avengers score wasn't much better. Now if John Powell had got the gig.....

So I'm hoping Cap 2 will be a lot better - apparently Johnstone won't be returning and that has got to be a good thing.

you are exactly right!
I said it before - CA is the best INDIANA JONES film since RAIDERS.
I would also rank it as the BEST comic book superhero movie since SUPERMAN (i am excluding the BATMAN films 'cuz they are more than comic book films).

CA was absolutely fantastic.
CHECK IT OUT, DAMMITT!

Similarly, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver both started as X-Men villains, but soon after joined the Avengers. Both characters are more associated with the Avengers than they are with X-Men, but I am sure they are both unavailable for an Avengers film for the same reasons. So I am guessing "Cap's Kooky Quartet" won't be showing up in Avengers 2!
