Marvel delays "Thor," "Avengers"

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – The superheroes will take just a little longer to arrive on the scene.

Marvel Entertainment said Thursday it was pushing back by a year a pair of key properties in its comic book franchises "Thor" and "Avengers."

"Thor" will now come out on June 17, 2011 (it had previously been scheduled for July 16, 2010), while "Avengers" will hit theaters May 4, 2012 (it had been slotted for July 15, 2011).

Marvel Studios chairman David Maisel said the move "maximizes the visibility of our single character-focused films, leading to the highly anticipated release of the multicharacter 'The Avengers' film in 2012."

It's likely, however, that the studio wanted to ensure at least one tentpole in as many years as possible. Under the previous schedule, it had nothing slated for 2012. Also, as Maisel suggested, the move gives maximum runway for the characters leading up to "Avengers," which will wrap in roles for many of its top-tier characters.

Had it let the previous dates stand, it would have seen the bunching of two properties (Iron Man and Thor) in 2010 and then three (Captain America, Spider-Man and the multicharacter Avengers) in 2011. Under the new schedule, it will space out the characters more: just one (Iron Man) in 2010, Spider-Man, Thor and Captain America in 2011, and Avengers in 2012.

The studio also announced that it was pushing the release of the Captain America picture, titled "The First Avenger: Captain America," back several months, from May 6, 2011, to July 22, 2011.

That move was not unexpected given that Sony, which is releasing "Spider-Man 4" via its licensing deal with Marvel, is bringing out its picture in May of that year. Marvel clarified on Thursday that that pic will come out on May 6, 2011. It had previously given the month of May but no exact date.

Marvel is pursuing a strategy similar to that of its classic comic books, in which characters frequently cross over between properties. Samuel Jackson recently signed a nine-picture deal to play superhero Nick Fury, who will appear in many of its upcoming pics.

The studio's current priority is "Iron Man 2." Casting is coming together for the project, with Mickey Rourke and Scarlett Johansson recently signing on for the project, which will shoot this year.
And more Iron Man II info!!

Marvel: Enter Iron Man II's Black Widow; Exit Thor, Avengers

It's been a busy 24 hours for Marvel as another big star signed on to Iron Man II, while two related franchises went into hibernation for another year.

Scarlett Johansson will join Robert Downey, Jr. and Mickey Rourke in the Iron Man sequel as Russian super-spy Black Widow -- following up on her "triumphant" turn in The Spirit. She and Rourke will make up a villainous Russian one-two punch to vex Tony Stark between Martinis.

Meanwhile, delays in getting Iron Man II up and running forced Marvel to delay the Thor and Avengers movies for a year. Thor will thunder our way in 2011, and a Jon Favreau-directed Avengers flick will follow in 2012.

I'm looking foward to the Cap movie the most myself, God I hope they get it right this time.

Iron man gave me hope they can pull it off.

Without a good Cap the Avengers movie will blow.

I don't know why they decided to replace Tony Stark's friend in the second movie and did'nt even ask the original actor back...that bugs me every time they replace an actor to play the same character. But I guess it won't matter too much since hopefully he's going to be suited up as Warmonger for the most part.
