Superhero movies are becoming bigger and better with each passing year, and we eagerly collect new information like a chipmunk searching for nuts. We’re here to let you know some of the amazing new rumors that are flying around about upcoming DC and Marvel movies!
Most of the big names related to the upcoming Avengers movie have been known for months, but there are a few hidden ones that have yet to see light!
For instance, did you know that famous British comedic actor Rowan Atkinson will be in costume as Ultron robot #4? He was apparently very excited about the role, stating it gave him a chance to “expand his dramatic muscles.” Multi-academy award winning Meryl Streep has been tagged to be the voice of one of Tony Stark’s new suits under the name “Jarvina.” We’re excited to hear that these veteran actors will be joining the already-talented cast of the new movie.
Howard the Duck?!
Seen briefly in the final stinger at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy, Howard the Duck is a classic P.I. character from Marvel’s archives. Director Paulina Pulmonary has been tagged to bring the flatfoot back to the big screen, set for a 2017 release. Seth Green will remain to provide the voice of Howard, Arianna Grande is one of the frontrunners for his young assistant, and Rowan Atkinson has signed on to villain of the piece, “Nazi von Killyou.” Mrs. Pulmonary has said that the name is likely to change.
Future DC projects
DC is preparing for Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad, but what’s next for them? Sources say a six-movie series about Crises on Infinite Earths, followed by The Death of Superman – with Rowan Atkinson as the deadly Doomsday – and then a movie for each of the four Superman replacements.
We’re very excited about all the movies that are planned for the future, and we can’t wait to see the sweet, sweet silver screen goodness that will be coming soon.
