Everything started when this lady announced that she would be playing an established Marvel character. And than the speculation’s started. C’mon Olivia Munn
, tell us all a secret!
But no, she just said: “…I can’t talk specifics because it’s Iron Man 2
!” Yeah, well thanks for this kind of help, girl!
Ok, that sound’s confusing, we know! So let’s start from the beginning! We all had an information that Olivia Munn will have a cameo in Iron Man 2. That cameo apparently was going be the voice for the “Jarvis” computer that is used by War Machine. But then, something changed, and she was called back in to film an actual scene.
Then, Olivia said she was playing an already established Marvel character adding:
called and was like, “I’ve got good news and bad news: This is what’s happening in editing but we all really like you. Marvel and Jon had to add another character from the Marvel universe to keep me included…I can’t talk specifics because it’s Iron Man 2!”
And that’s why now we have a new rumor that Munn will be appearing as socialite Janet Van Dyne in the film. Comic book fans know exactly who this is as Van Dyne eventually becomes The Wasp and marries Edward Pym (Giant Man/Ant Man).
If that’s true, than Olivia got herself into quite interesting team of well known actors.
We already wrote about this, but we could repeat that again, The First Avenger: Captain America
will be released on July 22, 2011, while The Avengers
will finally assemble on May 4, 2012, with Chris Evans
as Captain, Robert Downey Jr.
as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth
as Thor and Samuel L. Jackson
as Nick Fury.
But that’s not the end of this report! Funny things happened to this Marvel project.
Earlier this week, we heard that Joss Whedon
is in final negotiations to direct The Avengers
and that he will also rewrite the film’s script. Although this rumor is still unconfirmed, this could mean that Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely’s screenplay for The First Avenger: Captain America
will go to the Whedon’s hands.
This is not such a surprise, since we all know Whedon has previously written Astonishing X-Men
with artist John Cassaday and Runways
with Michael Ryan as well as numerous TV series, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly
As you see, some weird things are happening with this comic-book adaptations, so we’ll be in touch with every new information, and you, as always, are going to be the first one to know every single detail. So, guys, stay tuned!
