A film entitled The Avengers will be released on July 15, 2011 by Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios. Iron Man director Jon Favreau is the executive producer, while Robert Downey, Jr. and Don Cheadle will play Iron Man and War Machine respectively. Marvel confirmed the roster will also include Captain America, Thor and the Hulk, as they band together against a larger force. The film's writer, Zak Penn (co-writer of The Incredible Hulk), emphasized Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch's Ultimates as the inspiration for the story.

Does this thread not exist yet, or am I just not seeing it?

I don't think it does. What happen to that sticky thread Adrian with a collection to all the official threads anyway ?

I can't believe this movie will actually be real though. I want to see some movement on the Captain America movie.

No, they are still in pre-production for all of those movies. I'm extrmely curious though who will direct Captain America and whoever will play Steve Rogers himself (please let it be Aaron Eckhart). Seeing all of these guys in a movie should be brillant. I'm curious as well to Ed Norton's involvement. I don't see him being in a Avengers movie beyond the first.

This movie is going to rock the house. I really hope they finish off the casting as brilliantly as they've started it, although Thor is going to be ridiculously difficult to cast. I mean come on...who looks like the Norse God of Thunder? Not many people.

I say Karl Urban. He could do an awesome Thor as well as a good Donald Blake as well.

As Thor I wanna see Kevin McKidd as rumored before. That would be simply awesome.

Really glad they're going with this. They better not fuck this one up.

I think they have to have two actors. I mean, Thor and Donald Blake look nothing alike and I just don't see one actor being able to pull off both. Seriously, can you imagine a guy walking around looking like Thor in normal clothes? Plus, they're entirely different personas.

I really could see Karl Urban though. He'd be good, and it's perfect for him because it's just lots of posturing and violence. Keep the talking to a minimum Karl! I do like Kevin McKidd as Blake though. I think he'd do a good job, although he is an American. Not that McKidd couldn't pull off American.

Also, am I the only one that's a bit skittish about Zak Penn using the Ultimates as the basis? I guess I shouldn't be because Iron Man was definitely pretty hard on the Ultimate feel and Samuel L. Jackson is actually playing Fury, but I don't know. I kind of wish we would get Avengers classic.

Everything about Ultimate Iron Man is different than what was in the Iron Man movie. In Ultimate Iron Man, Tony Stark could regrow limbs, was friends with Rhodes since they were little, and Obadiah was an annoying little fat kid. Also, the role of his father was almost non-existent in the movie outside of the opening recap before Tony gets the award.

However, the black Nick Fury? Yeah. That' Ultimates. And I think that if they took Ultimates 1 and made it a movie, it'd be awesome. Ultimates 2 would be an even better movie because that book is fucking incredible. Ultimates 3? Yeah... not so much. Then again, they did already make the animated movie Ultimate Avengers which followed the plot of the book semi-closely and was pretty good. So I dunno. But I approve of anything Mark Millar related (except for the Wanted movie)
