CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER
Collider asked Stanley Tucci about working in a big summer vehicle. He says the green screen material makes “acting really come into play.” He also says while he looks different from the Doctor Erksine of the comics, “the essence of the character is absolutely truthful to the story, to the original comics, which is, he’s this very smart, very sweet scientist who escapes the Nazis and helps create Captain America. And he’s older. He’s elderly which is why they cast me.” Meanwhile, one of the lads at Comic Book Movie received a call sheet from someone claiming to be an extra. Are the Invaders assembling for filming?
Starring Chris Evans, release date: July 22nd, 2011
According to MTV News, the series will see realization as an “illustrated” film while the live action feature continues development. “Produced by Halo-8 Entertainment, the “Hack/Slash” illustrated film (it’s not a “motion comic,” I’m told) will be adapted and directed by award-winning filmmaker Matt Pizzolo, who previously produced Halo-8’s popular “GodKiller” illustrated film,” writes MTV’s Rick Marshall. “According to Halo-8, the “Hack/Slash” film will be based on the ‘My First Maniac’ story arc published by Image Comics.”
Release date: TBA
