There’s lots of little Marvel Updates to share this week, so here we are with another batch of Marvel tidbits. This update will cover Iron Man 2, Thor and the Spider-Man reboot.

Some of the things we’ll touch on include the Thor characters Odin and Heimdall, a rumored villain and actor for the Marc Webb-directed Spider-Man reboot, Stan Lee, and some Iron Man 2 promotional updates.

Let’s get to it.

Odin’s Beard

billy connolly Marvel Movie Updates: Odin, Iron Man 2, Spider Man Rumor & MoreAs we know, the talented Sir Anthony Hopkins is playing the mighty role of Odin and as such, he must sport a mighty hairstyle. According to Hopkins, Thor’s daddy looks like comedian/actor Billy Connolly.

“I’ve already grown a beard in preparation for the role, but when I put on my long wig on I look just like Billy Connolly. In fact I look so much like him I’m thinking maybe I’ll play Odin with a Glasweigan accent.”

I love Billy Connolly!

A Big Sword Guards a Rainbow Bridge

Flicks and Bits spoke with actor Idris Elba who’s got a cool role in the Thor movie, playing the character of Heimdall, the guardian of the Norse gods’ BiFrost Bridge, a mystical bridge that connects the realms of Asgard and our Earth.

“Yeah man I`m filming that in Febuary, that`s gonna be excellent, I can`t say too much about it though, they`ve signed me to silence, it`s a big Marval comic, it`s exciting, I`ve got a big sword, a real big sword!”

Principal Photography began the previous Monday so with Elba set to begin in February, we can expect his character not to have too much screen time.

Spider-Man Reboot Rumor

If you didn’t already know, there is no such thing as a Spider-Man film without a stupid amount of rumors and speculation. Adding to this, Clive Owen is apparently rumored to play Kraven the Hunter although I’m not sure who or where this one was made up.

The Coventry Telegraph managed to ask Owen about this and he of course replied that it was the first he heard of it. Borinngggg.

  1. What do I think? I can't decide whether I'm at a hors d'oeuvres only party and starving or being fed something edible with a spoon squeezed out of a plastic ketchup squeeze bottle?? But if that's the only party in town well I guess “that's the way it is” as Walter use to say.

  2. AC/DC had what one song in the first? Didn't think it was that “big” as opposed to the Sabbath… which is the only song they ever need for this Superhero.. :D

  3. lol, I think they just love the idea of being associated with such a big and cool movie to sell a CD of songs that they made before the Iron Man movie ever existed.

  4. I do like the idea of Clive Owen as kraven. I would rather see him as Batman.

  5. “Everyone wants to go see it bc they want to see this crazy thing Stan is doing..”
    Lol, Stan is the man

  6. i like the idea of Owen as Kraven but i was thinking more like Gerald Butler, as far as the whole Thor meshing well with Thor i cant wait to see that on the big screen,
    Sir hopkins is crazy he's a funny guy…..IM2 webiste is kinda (or really is) boring. anyway this was all great news and hey ScreenRant Kevin Feige had a some cool news today as well check into that and Bendis had this to say on Twitter…… BRIANMBENDIS HEORIC AGE IS OFFICIAL!! boom!! RT @USATODAY First look: Marvel Comics' 'heroes will be heroes again' http://usat.me?37369896

  7. Less than 100 days until IM2, BTW!

    Another tidbit I haven't seen mentioned: Bob Layton told MTV that Bethany Cabe is NOT in Iron Man 2. The young actress (Kate Mara — 16, yikes!) listed as her in IMDB is in the movie, but not as Cabe.

  8. Please give Spiderman a rest if y'all cant do it right..I was sold to part 1 but not the 2 sequels! It became more comical and broadwayishly gay to me!They desperately need a bad-ass new director and a good writer for it…

  9. I'm really not a fan of the AC/DC stuff. I guess they really need the money or something. It's not a thing against AC/DC or anything, but I think it's just worthless publicity BS. I'm really glad they saved Sabbath's Iron Man for the credits of the first film, because I think it would have been incredibly cheesy. Not to mention I'm just a big Sabbath fan so I'm kinda protective of them.

  10. hey this is for a project at college so if you could contribute it'd be awesome,
    i just want to know:
    1) how you were introduced to comic books (not exclusively marvel)
    2)what the very first comic book you ever remember reading was

  11. Personally, i dislike the idea of a Spider-man reboot very very much. But what can i do?

  12. C'mon, the first Spidey movie was very high on the cheese factor. The Green Goblin with his power rangers mask. I loved the first movie, but the second is far and away the best film of the trio. As a matter of fact, it is the only one I still watch. The effects are more refined (in the first you can tell it was SFx when Spidey was webslinging through NYC.) I just hope that whatever they do in the reboot, they don't make MJ a whiney little beitch. I also hope they make Spidey the wisecracking superhero we all loved in the comics.
