More Marvel Updates!!!


This is a list that comes courtesy of IESB.net - highlights from a press conference organized just for you!

…Iron Man shows that we can take our lesser known characters, reach into the storyline of our comic books and make them into valuable, really, "brands" for us. Each of these characters becomes a brand that we can market. We can do them in movies, we can do them in merchandising, we can do them in animation, we can exploit them in licensing …

…View digital distribution of our comics as an area of great growth potential…and also soon in mobile distribution…so they can read our new comic books on their mobile device…

…Hulk is coming in three weeks as well…we are very excited and think it's a major improvement over the first film which was out about 5 years ago…

…I think it leaked that Tony Stark will make an appearance in our Hulk movie that's coming…

…Marvel has created the "May 1st" release date, last year with Spider-man 3 and now with Iron Man….the motion picture industry really didn't believe that would be a viable date for our types of films….so we're very pleased with that as well.

…We could have, theoretically, Iron Man 2 in late 2009 but we want Iron Man 2 to be the highest quality film that we possibly can make so we've moved back 4 or 5 months to that May 1st timeframe in 2010 and we think that will have little impact overall on Marvel's financials by doing that…


Plus check out the IESB articles below for more information regarding Spider-man 4, Spider-man The Musical and their PG-13 and under policy…

No R-rated Films for Marvel Studios

Spider-man Broadway Show is a GO!

Spider-Man 4 Coming 2010?!



There is some real interesting news in here most notably those links at the end that lead to larger articles. Spiderman musical?? As long as there is no emo Spiderman songs it will work out. No R rated films? Could be sucky, but seems to have worked out so far. and Spiderman 4?????? We have absolutely NO info about director or cast! It could end up sucking! Hopefully everything turns out all great just like Iron Man. Then I will be smiling.
