They've already done two animated direct-to-DVD releases of Avengers so far.

Yes, but this would be a live action one, as seen in their PDF.

I know. I read it. I was just pointing out the obvious, for those that might not be aware.

I hope it's better than the recent animated films. There are simply too many characters to service fairly.

I don't know how they would work it out. The public at large don't really know who they are. I haven't read a comic in over a decade so even I don't know who he current members are. The ones that come to mind are The Wasp, Giant Man, Hawkeye, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Thor, Iron Man, Hercules, Hulk and Capt. America and those are just the revolving cast members I recall from the last 30 years. Like the X-Men it's just going to be hard to pick and choose which characters would be in it. I think it would be a daunting task especially since J6P doesn't know who they are. At least the X-Men had some exposure (cartoon series) before the films.

Well, if they start with the more mainstream characters (Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Capt. America) most casual fans would recognize them.

The problem is that they can't. Marvel has sold out a lot of their major characters movies right piecemeal, so the chances of them ever being in an Avengers movies is slight.

However, the lesser know characters might make for a better movie.

All of those characters that Deftones mentioned are under the new Marvel brand, I believe, not other studios. I believe I read that even the Hulk went back to Marvel from Universal.

Bah. Just do Squadron Supreme the movie instead and use J. Michael Straczynski's treatment of it for the basis of the movie.

Even if Marvel has the rights back, the chance of seeing a theatrical live-action Avengers movie with the A-listers--Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man and Thor--any time soon is slim to none. Marvel will want those characters for individual features.

Meaning if there's an Avengers movie it's going to be with the B-listers. Which is fine by me, but I don't know how Hawkeye et al will go over with the masses.

Well they could use Hulk now in the Avengers movie if they wanted to.

I've read somewhere that the movie is in the works too but I forgot where.

I agree. Hawkeye is cool and he and Hank Pym and The Wasp have pretty much been constant members since they joined. If Fox does this they could use a Magneto storyline to introduce Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch(just leave out that talking cow that raised them). It would be a little hard to leave out Iron Man since Tony Stark flips the bill for the mansion and expenses but I could live with changes to that. Be cool to see Ultron as the villian.

Hmmm...actually they were good. However, I was always partial to the Great Lakes Avengers.

Did anyone see the special making of thing for Dr. Strange on the Avengers 2 disc? It leads me to believe that they are doing an animated film for him too.

Marvel to unite "Avengers" for movie By Paul Bond
Thu Sep 14, 1:52 AM ET

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Some time after Marvel Entertainment unleashes "Iron Man," "The Incredible Hulk" and a few other choice superheroes as stars of their own feature films, the company intends to release a live-action version of "The Avengers" -- a team dubbed as "Earth's mightiest heroes."

Set to pen the screenplay is Zak Penn, the writer behind the last two "X-Men" movies from 20th Century Fox and Marvel.

Executives spoke briefly about their "Avengers" plan Wednesday during a presentation to Wall Street analysts at the Merrill Lynch Media & Entertainment Conference in Pasadena.

The comic book "The Avengers" began as a team consisting of superheroes Thor, Ant-Man, Wasp, Iron Man and Hulk. Later, Captain America and a host of others joined. Executives didn't say exactly which of Marvel's superheroes would be depicted in "The Avengers" movie.

Considering I couldn't find any news about it or a listing at IMDB, I was sort of shocked by it.

There's info here: http://www.comics2film.com/FanFrame.php?f_id=21373

They've been talking about it since before the first Ultimate Avengers was released. There is also an Iron Man animated movie in the works.

interesting new tidbit about the Hulk & Iron Man films. Hasn't been verified yet, but sounds like it could be a pretty cool idea and the "start" of an Avengers stand-alone film:

from AICN:
http://www.aintitcool.com/node/34962
This is interesting, and it plays into something weíve been saying for a little while here at AICN. We broke the story earlier this year that Sam Jackson will appear in IRON MAN as Nick Fury. I heard from a completely different source that there might be a similar scene in THE INCREDIBLE HULK, something that was added late in the process. Could it be that Marvelís going to set up their eventual AVENGERS movie by connecting all these movies up via one character who approaches each of these heroes separately?

Iím not sure there really is a second Nick Fury appearance. But when I got this e-mail (edited a bit to protect the spy) today, it made me wonder anew... just how closely related are these worlds all going to be? I like this possible way of doing it far more than Warnerís proposed out-of-continuity JUSTICE LEAGUE film.

Anyway... check this out, grain of salt included unless we can verify it soon:

There are some fuzzy politics going on with the Iron Man and Hulk movies - they're shooting a scene TOGETHER! The trouble is, I can't tell if its an Iron Man scene with the Hulk in in or a Hulk scene with IRON MAN in it, more interestingly, it's possible that the SAME SCENE or some variation of it might be in BOTH movies lending to the comic book / single universe, many heroes idea seen in the past - uber cool.
