Marvel Comics ThorSadly, Matthew Vaughn is off another Marvel comics film adaptation (the first of which was “X3”). Variety broke the news last night that Kenneth Branagh (Henry V, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein) is close to a deal with Marvel to direct the comic book Norse God’s first feature film.

Branagh, a director and actor, would be directing from a script by Mark Protosevich, which early reviews have praised as being the best comic book turned film script ever written. In Protosevich’s “Thor”, we follow a “disabled medical student Donald Blake, who has an alter ego as the hammer-wielding Norse god Thor.” Rumor has it that the film would be a fantasy epic, rather than a stright superhero film (like Marvel’s “Iron Man” and “The Incredible Hulk” films this past summer).

While no actor has been attached to portray Thor, there have been rumors for months that Kevin McKidd (Journeyman, Rome) would be picking up the hammer. The film is expected to be released on June 4, 2010, which is a little over a month after “Iron Man 2” is supposed to hit theaters.

The Amazing Spider-Man is in some trouble...

Preview: Amazing Spider-Man #570


While we have no idea who Spider-Man will face in his 4th and 5th films, he is up against some major trouble in the comics!

After recent bouts with new villains such as Menace, Screwball, and Freak, Spider-Man will now have his hands full with his old school gallery when he faces the Green Goblin (Norman Osborn), Venom (now Mac Gargan, the former Scorpion), Bullseye, and Eddie Brock, who is now the Anti-Venom.

The Lizard vs Spiderman

We can all have a collective sigh of relief, Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire have signed on to Spider-Man 4 and 5! With them on board, it’ll only be a matter of time before Kristen Dunst signs on the dotted line.  Bryce Dallas Howard is ready to go back to work as Gwen Stacey, and I think we can assume J.K. Simmons, Bruce Campbell and Ted Raimi will be back to steal scenes. The only big question mark is who will Spider-man face in the film? Villains like Man-Wolf and Carnage have been set up in earlier films, but I doubt we’ll see either of them. Who would I like to see Spider-Man take on? Read on for my thoughts.

Access Hollywood has posted a deleted scene from Marvel Studios’ Iron Man. The scene takes place just before Iron Man leaves to fight terrorists in the Middle East. He sets up a party, makes sure to be seen and uses three beautiful women as his alibi as he goes to fight crime.

While it is a cool scene, I’m really glad it was deleted. I understand the need for the secret identity , but this just seems like a long drawn out thing for a “hero” to do while people are dying and need his help.
