Marvel Updates from Twitter - Iron Man 2 Trailer, Thor Buzz!
Within the last year, Twitter has become a huge source for updates and a valuable resource for keeping in touch with filmmakers. We've written about plenty of scoops and reports from Twitter before, but today we've got a few updates to highlight, all pertaining to Marvel movies in the works. First off, Jon Favreau tweeted a reply last night to a user confirming that the Iron Man 2 trailer would be attached to Sherlock Holmes, meaning it would debut on Christmas Day. That's almost exciting enough already. Additionally, though, some Marvel guys were chatting about a meeting they had for Kenneth Branagh's Thor movie.
The big Thor discussion was kicked off today by Marvel's editor-in-chief Joe Quesada - @JoeQuesada:
"I could listen to Branagh talk about Thor all day long. Cast is in place, sets are being built and screenplay is brilliant. Marveldom rules!"
Then comic book author Brian Michael Bendis - @BRIANMBENDIS - replied with the following as well:
"Broadcasting live from marvel west. Thor movie meeting with Ken branagh was over the top amazing. Visited the sets! I was in Odin's chamber!"
"U should get in line for the Thor movie today. Just saying."
I know this kind of buzz is pretty much expected coming from people who work for Marvel, but it's always awesome to hear. And the more I hear, the more excited I get, which is a big change of pace because I wasn't on-board when they first signed Kenneth Branagh to direct. These new quotes fall right in line with what I've heard previously about this movie and about everything Branagh has done for it so far. We reported last week that Marvel and Paramount were preparing to shoot this in January. So while Thor is shooting, we'll all be screaming in excitement over the Iron Man 2 trailer, which will probably kick ass. I say bring it on!
