DOES MARVEL STUDIOS HAVE A DEEP THROAT?

Thursday, March 12 by

Ain’t It Cool just broke a story this evening with insider information on some of the upcoming Marvel Studios releases whose release dates that Screen Junkies covered this morning.  It seems as though there’s a spy among the True Believers at Marvel, and this "Fuzzy Dunlop" has given us some very interesting tidbits on casting, directors and those Fox remakes of Fan 4 and Daredevil we keep hearing about. 

Boiled down bullet points after the jump.

-Avengers is delayed a year because of financing issues but also because the plan is for Iron Man and IR2‘s Jon Favreau to direct it. He’s tied up with the sequel right now, and the main reason Favs agreed to do the sequel was so that he "had first dibs on [Avengers]."

-Alexander Skargard is director Kenneth Branagh’s favorite to pla Thor. If that happens, then Marvel "hopes to get Stellan Skarsgard for Odin."
- Thor villain Loki will "probably be played by Hartnett, if his pay negotiations work out".

- Fox is "serious about doing remakes of Daredevil and Fan 4." Apparently they "have to make new movies with these characters every few years because otherwise the options will revert to [Marvel]."

Hopefully that last one doesn’t mean a rush job, but you never know…
