Marvel Movie News for 2007

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige talks about upcoming movies coming to the big screen.
The News-Sentinel has posted a new interview with Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige in which he talks about possibly spinning-off The Silver Surfer, the Iron Man armor and second "Hulk" film. Here are some of the highlights:

"Rise of the Silver Surfer" is a sequel to 2005's "Fantastic Four." There had long been talk of developing Marvel's cosmic Silver Surfer in his own film. But ultimately, Feige said, "we at Marvel decided, you know what, it would be best to introduce him as he was in the comics, which was on an adventure with the Fantastic Four.

"And if that works out, we would love to spin him into his own movies."

A key challenge has been designing the high-tech armor that the character of Tony Stark dons to become Iron Man. "We've had artists working on it for nearly a year now," Feige said, "designing what I believe is the single most successful translation of a character from comics to the big screen, and the best version of the suit that has ever existed."

A 2008 release date is also set for "The Incredible Hulk." The green-skinned behemoth first stormed into theaters in director Ang Lee's "Hulk" in 2003. Feige says he's proud of the angst-ridden first film.

But he's eager to deliver a movie that explores a different angle of the Hulk, "which is that element of wish fulfillment, of overcoming an injustice or a bully and tapping into a strength that you didn't quite realize you had in yourself."
