According to Heat Vision, Marvel has its eyes on two potential directors to replace Patty Jenkins. Both Alan Taylor and Daniel Minahan hail from the cable TV world where they have both directed episodes of "Game of Thrones." Taylor also directed the film "Palookaville." Additionally, Marvel is looking for a new writer. The article claims that the shortlist includes "John Collee, whose credits include 'Happy Feet' and 'Master and Commander: Far Side of the World,' Robert Rodat, the scribe who created the TNT show 'Falling Skies' and wrote 'Saving Private Ryan,' and Roger Avary, best known for sharing an Oscar with Quentin Tarantino for writing 'Pulp Fiction.' I've got to say that John Milius would make a great writer/director for this thing. He wrote "Apocalypse Now" and directed the original "Conan the Barbarian." Perfect credits to take the reigns of a "Thor" film, I should think.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, release date: November 13th, 2013

Scarlett Johansson discusses the possibility of a Black Widow spinoff with Superhero Hype. "I think that Marvel has a very personal relationship with their fans, and I think if the fans want it, and the audience wants it, nothing's impossible. I would love to explore that option as well. Like I said, I love the character and it would be nice to see something nice and gritty," she says. "I've heard nothing [so far]. You know how it goes. Sometimes two days before, it's like 'And here's your next mission.'"

Directed by Joss Whedon & starring everybody, release date: May 4th, 2012


It's one day to the Blu-ray release of "The Rocketeer" and I cannot be happier about it. Amazon sent me a shipping notice yesterday, so maybe I'll even have it tonight. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours. Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya, anticipating the future threat of a young Jennifer Connelly in 1080p.
