With all the new comic book movies coming out, who can’t be excited? The two that or the nearest to being released are Iron Man and Dark Knight(sequel to Batman Begins). Many more comic book movies are Looking to be released in the next few years like a Wolverine prequel to X-men, Captain America, Wonder Woman, Spiderman 4, and an X-men 4. Not much information on these movies yet, but we will keep you posted with news about them.
We should be expecting a release of Iron Man around late May 2008. This film is going to be starring Robert Downing, Jr. as Tony Stark, Iron Man. Basically the plot line is that Stark gets in an accident and decides to use the body suit technology that kept him alive to fight fight crime. Other big name actors and actresses that will be appearing in this are Gwenyth Paltro as Pepper Pots, Terence Howard as Jim Rhodes, and Jeff Bridges as Iron Monger. Iron Man comic fans should be rather excited because there are talks of sequels and spin-offs from this upcoming movie, maybe even an Avengers movie.
Next July will be a very exciting time for me in that the new Batman will be released and will be featuring the most prolific hero and villian tandum ever to be created in comic book history. The Joker is back everyone! Jack Nicholson played the character the first time around and did a amazing job. The new joker is going to be played by Heath Ledger. I don’t know how I think this is going to top the Nicholson performance but I’m quite ready to find out. Thank goodness the Batman role will continue being played by Christian Bale. I’m glad to see that this Batman series of movies will try to keep the same actors/actresses throughout the movies, well atleast the same Batman. New characters will include Harvey Dent (Two Face!!, but just district attorney in this one probably) played by Aaron Eckert, and rumor of Edward Nygma (The Riddler!!, but just a scientist in this one probably) maybe making an appearence and might being played by Anthony Michael Hall. Looks to me that there will most likely be several sequels to follow.
