Comic-Con 2008: Marvel Panel July 25, 2008 10:10 pm

Posted by Rosario T. Calabria in Ant-Man, Comic-Con 2008, Movies, News, Silver Surfer, The Avengers, The Incredible Hulk, Thor.

Marvel’s panel today at Comic-Con featured Kevin Feige From Marvel Studios, Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada and Dan Buckley from Marvel Publishing and Craig Kyle from Marvel Animation.  Here are the highlights courtesy ComingSoon.net:

  • Kevin Feige said that the goal is to hire filmakers and get scripts in before casting their upcoming movies.
  • Feige also said that The Incredible Hulk lived up to their expectations and that the Hulk will make a return.
  • Marvel doesn’t believe they’ll ever get certain other characters back due to specific contractual obligations (i.e. it’s not likely Sony and Fox would let go of Spider-Man or X-Men).
  • Thor and Ant-Man are their two highest priorities over the coming year.
  • Feige wasn’t able to comment about whether Jon Favreau was officially signed on to direct Iron Man 2.
  • Dr. Doom won’t be in the Avengers movie because he’s part of the 20th Century Fox contract with Marvel.  He wouldn’t comment about whether he’d be apart of a future sequel.
  • He confirmed that a script exists for a Silver Surfer movie, but Feige said he believes Fox is going to wait and see how X-Men Origins: Wolverine does before commiting.
  • Marvel has no plans to license out any other characters that haven’t already been licensed out.

Just out of curiosity, did the Marvel panel discuss anything related to their comics or was it all about movies?

They did actually. ComingSoon.net’s report on the panel though focused solely on the Marvel Studios angle. Check out a site such as ComicBookResources.com, they should have a lot of reports on the Comic Book-related panels at the event.
