Iron Man 2 – Robert Downey Jr talks to Jonathan Ross

Posted by LiveFor on April 26, 2010

I have a lot in common with Robert Downey Jr. We both have beards….we both, er, we both have beards…did I mention the beard?

Well Downey Jr isn’t quite as cool as me. Take that Downey Jr.

Iron Man 2 – Screenwriter Justin Theroux talks about The Mandarin and after the credit wonders

Posted by LiveFor on April 26, 2010

You may well recognise Justin Theroux’s face from Mulholland Drive and Charlie’s Angels 2. He is also a cool screenwriter who wrote Iron man 2. With the film due out in the UK on Friday and the USA next week he has been chatting to MovieWeb about the story.

They asked him whether Iron Man’s arch-nemesis, The Mandarin, would show up in the sequel (he was hinted at in the first with the whole 10 Ring terrorist group).

“Yeah, we tip our hat to that but that’s a tough one to get in because it’s such a big storyline,” explained Theroux. “So that, I don’t know, and I don’t dare say it but it might feature in Iron Man 3, I don’t know?”

As he is also an actor are there any roles Theroux would live to play in the Marvel universe?

“I don’t know? Hawkeye would be great,” answered Theroux. “No, I don’t know? Yeah that would be fun. We’ll have to see because I’ve never even thought of that? We’ll see?”

Collider also spoke to him and got onto the subject of what we may see after the credits (we got to see Nick Fury at the end of the first one) and whether something like that could be improvised as many of the scenes in the film were.

“No, that’s got to be very specific because you can’t…if it was all of a sudden Tony opens a tool box and there’s a friggin’ hammer in there, you can’t bone the next guy. You know it’s not like…you want to create possibilities. So that’s a very thought out piece. If the shield all of a sudden just falls out of the sky, whatever it is, whatever that thing is, you want to be very specific about it.

Only a few more days to wait until we get to see. What would you like to see after the credits?

Marvel Studios to make low budget films featuring lesser known characters

Posted by LiveFor on April 22, 2010

Marvel Studios have been doing a great job with the big name characters such as Iron Man, Hulk, Thor and Captain America. However, they have so many characters to choose from, but many are lesser known so they would never get the big budget treatment.

That means those of us who love the smaller characters – Moon Knight, Dr Strange, Dazzler, Ka-Zar, Power Pack, Deathlok, Luke Cage, Sleepwalker, Night Thrasher, Speedball and so many more may never get to see them on the big screen.

Well hold onto you hats true believers. Turns out Marvel Studios may be doing just that. According to CHUD they are meeting with writers and directors to work on small scale movies based on some of those very characters. The movies would cost in the range of 20 to 40 million dollars (very small when we’re talking studio films) and would allow them to take risks with less obvious characters and with interesting talent.

Filmmakers are being offered their pick of characters and it sounds as if Marvel will go with any cool story put to them.

I think this is excellent news and Kick-Ass shows that with a low budget and minimum advertising you can make headway against some of the bigger budgeted film.

Plus lower budget means filmmakers will make sure every penny is spent well and could lead to some awesome kind of films. Imagine the street level Marvel characters such as Luke Cage made in a French Connection style, Iron Fist as an R rated kung-fu movie, or a truly gory body part swapping Terror Inc!

Of course no word yet on what characters will be used just yet but I think this is a breath of fresh air for the comic book movies and exciting for comic fans such as me.

What characters would you like to see get onto the big screen? Who could play them and who could direct?

Samuel L Jackson says Nick Fury is not in Thor but Avengers starts shooting next February

Posted by LiveFor on April 20, 2010

While chatting to various people about his new indie film Mother and Child Samuel L Jackson got onto the subject of his work as Nick Fury for Marvel Studios.

He is signed up for nine films as Fury and sounds as if the role will get bigger as the films move on.

“I got started on it when I did the end of Iron Man 1. My foot was on the path. Now, my foot is a little deeper on the path ’cause we’ve got Iron Man 2. I’m not in Thor. I’m supposed to do Captain America this summer in London.”

It is a surprise that he is not in Thor. Even Jackson didn’t know why Fury wouldn’t be featuring.

“I have no idea. I’m not in charge of making those decisions. I thought I was. They said I was in the trades, and I was like, “Oh, I’ve got a job!” And then, I called my agent and she said, “Nah, you’re not in it. They misprinted.” I was like, “Well shit, they need to pay me just ’cause they put my name in it.”

They asked Jackson if he does in fact get to “kick some major ass” in Iron Man 2 and if we will finally get to see his badass Fury in full action? “No, I get to talk really harshly with Robert Downey Jr., but that is about it,” answered Jackson. “So far that’s all I’m doing.”

As for The Avengers how big a role will Fury have in that team film?

“The Avengers is my own starring vehicle for that character, pretty much. That’s not that far away. It’s in February. It’s just February. I’ve got time to get in shape and everything.”

“[He will] shoot somebody,” he said. “I’d like for him to do something eventually.”

“I’m totally looking forward to finally getting Nick Fury into action,” he added.

They finished by asking Jackson if he was happy that Whedon would be directing the The Avengers and if he was excited to be working with him on the project? “Yes I am,” replied Jackson. “I’m looking forward to that.”

Glad to hear that Whedon is definitely on for The Avengers and good to see more Jackson as Fury. Would you want to see a Nick Fury movie?
