There’s a lot happening in the film industry for the comic book movie genre and a lot of that is coming from the Marvel-based material. We’ve gathered a bunch of news items from today and over the last week to share with you in this Marvel news round-up.

In this report, we’ll talk about the brand new Iron Man 2 trailer debuting this Sunday, the status of the Wolverine 2 script, Kat Dennings’ character in Thor and an actor’s tweets about an upcoming Marvel movie.

New Iron Man 2 Trailer Coming Sunday

[Update: The New Iron Man 2 Trailer is here!]

The 82nd Academy Awards takes place this Sunday, March 7th and we’ll be live-blogging it here at Screen Rant.  It’s scheduled to end at 11:30pm but as we know, it always runs late. With the changes in the schedule, cutting out of the best song performances and long “thank you” speeches however, it could run on schedule this year.

What matters most to Iron Man fans is what happens after with Jimmy Kimmel Live. Robert Downey Jr. will be a guest and he’ll be bringing a brand new Iron Man 2 trailer, something to stay up late for!

Wolverine 2 Script Draft Complete

Oscar-winning writer Christopher McQuarrie has finished his script for Wolverine 2 and from what’s being reported, it’s much different than X-Men Origins: Wolverine and different than what was “originally thought” according to THR. We know that it’ll follow Wolverine’s adventures in Japan and it will be a love story.

Kat Dennings Talks Thor

Matt Goldberg at Collider had a chance to interview Kat Dennings  for her role in Defendor alongside Woody Harrelson and in their chat, they discussed Marvel Studios’ production of Thor for which she has an unfamiliar role to those who read the comics.

Here’s the snippet from their interview:

Have you sort of…is your character in the comics?

Dennings:   No. She’s not. She’s a new invention. Yeah.

Okay. I believe I read, and correct me if I’m wrong, that your character is a friend of Natalie Portman’s character?

Dennings:   Yeah. Yeah. I don’t know how much I can say.

Okay. Are you actually a god in the film?

Dennings:   I can’t tell you…

Can’t tell me? Can’t tell me anything? Okay.

Dennings:   No, I can’t tell you.

That’s an interesting point about being a god since we’re still curious about how in the film they will explain the realm/world of Asgard and how the characters go from there to our Earth. Natalie Portman plays Jane Foster, a nurse who works for Thor’s alter ego, Dr. Donald Blake.

The Twitter Report

The world’s new form of mass communication and news dissemination, Twitter, has some of the actors and potential actors of upcoming Marvel movies to keep us informed. Let’s take a look at what Jaime Alexander (@JaimieGirlXO), who plays Sif in Thor talked about the movie last week:

“working hard on a Saturday icon smile Marvel News: Iron Man 2 Trailer, Wolverine 2 Script & More! [Updated] photo shoot for THOR icon smile Marvel News: Iron Man 2 Trailer, Wolverine 2 Script & More! [Updated] woop :)”

“It’s been an AMAZING shoot so far. Kenneth Branagh is beyond MARVELous icon wink Marvel News: Iron Man 2 Trailer, Wolverine 2 Script & More! [Updated] hehehe”

“RT everyone…. I am not allowed to post any pictures of “THOR” icon sad Marvel News: Iron Man 2 Trailer, Wolverine 2 Script & More! [Updated] sorry xo”

“is off to train….must get even more fit before heading off to Santa Fe !!!”

I wonder if Jaime’s tweets about the photo shoot mean we may finally get to see the characters in costume sometime in the near future? There’s not been one leak from the set and they’ve done a fantastic job so far of keeping things underwraps.

That’s it for this Marvel round-up, come back soon for more!

  1. Normally, I tune out after the Oscar telecast, but this time … I'll make an exception.

    After not seeing the IM2 trailer during the Super Bowl, seeing after the Oscars on Jimmy Kimmel Live will be a nice surprise, and Robert Downey Jr. is the “icing on the cake”, so to speak.

    Yep… I'm so there, and I promise that I won't go into a full-blown geekgasm while I'm watching the new IM2 trailer.

  3. Disqus strikes again!

    I really hope Chase Crawford isn't Capn America. What a shame that would be.

  4. Excited for everything else except for X-Men and Wolverine. I hate Fox.

  5. You hate one fox, or foxes in general? Is it the Fantastic Mr. Fox? Michael J. Fox? Megan Fox? 99.3FM-The Fox? Terry Fox? Fox in Socks? Vivica Fox? Wow, that's a lot of foxes.

  6. Hey. I'm the self-proclaimed funny-man here so watch your sarcastic self, 'k? :)

  7. Having Chase Crawford play Captain America is the equivalent of having James van Der Beek play Wolverine. This is a no no. Come some dweeb from gossip girl is going to play the iconic cpt america. This is simply ridiculous. Find someone that has not subjected himself to teh stupidity that is teen girl television. Whatever happened to Chris Pine, Sam Worthington, and Jensen Ackles they were all FAR BETTER candidates for the role. I really hope that Crawford does not get the role and that the studio is just touting our horn.

  8. LOL! No I love foxy ladies like Megan Fox and Vivica Fox. I meant I hate 20th Century Fox. They have had good movies over the years but anything dealing with comic book movies or video game movies, they need to stop making.

  9. I knocked out the Chace Crawford section of the Twitter reports since we're hearing it's not his real account.

  10. I just hope Wolverine 2 is at least decent, unlike the first. I can't wait for the Iron Man 2 trailer.
