Marvel movies are on fire right now with Iron Man 2 and the upcoming Thor, Captain America, Avengers trifecta. But there’s a ridiculous amount of characters who are just as cool but aren’t really known to anyone outside of comics readers. A recent rumor is that Marvel might tackle introducing these characters in live action shorts that will appear before their big tent pole movies. Characters like Dr. Strange, Black Panther and Luke Cage (with Iron Fist?) are some of the names being thrown around. If anyone of these characters really gains buzz from audiences then they could potentially be turned into full length features. Pixar seems to have great success with their shorts and it would be awesome to see some of Marvel’s second and third tier heroes get some mainstream attention.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
