Wait, it’s a Marvel two-fer in the trades! The Hollywood Reporter says a live-action Avengers movie is in the works!
Set to pen the screenplay is Zak Penn, the writer behind the last two “X-Men” movies from 20th Century Fox and Marvel.
Executives spoke briefly about their “Avengers” plan Wednesday during a presentation to Wall Street analysts at the Merrill Lynch Media & Entertainment Conference in Pasadena.
The comic book “The Avengers” began as a team consisting of superheroes Thor, Ant-Man, Wasp, Iron Man and Hulk. Later, Captain America and a host of others joined. Executives didn’t say exactly which of Marvel’s superheroes would be depicted in “The Avengers” movie.
