From Comics Continuum:

Is Tom Cruise Iron-Man?Marvel Studios’ Avi Arad said that the Iron Man movie is in “aggressive development” at New Line Cinema.

“We’re dealing with casting issues and directing issues,” Arad said during Marvel’s second quarter conference call on Thursday.

The film was originally targeted for a November 2005 release, but might be pushed back to summer 2006.

“The November 2005 date is still attainable,” Arad said. “But it’s a fluid situaton. We should know more in 6-8 weeks.”

Could the casting issues be related to the fact that Tom Cruise is supposed to start filming of MI:3 this September, and if Avi really wants Cruise the production has to be pushed back?

If Cruise is starring in, and also producing Mission Impossible 3, it seems like 5-7 months would be a reasonable time frame. Also 6-8 weeks from now puts us in the middle of September.

About Vic

  • Iron Man rocks. This and Hulk were my favorite comics as a kid.

    Iron Man was my big-time fave as well. I still pick up the comic, even though it hasn’t been great lately… although Warren Ellis is coming on board and I hear that’s a good thing.

    I’d love to see Cruise get this because it would add some serious “weight” to the film. On the other hand, I would hope he would not want to turn it into something it’s not.

    David Hayter is supposed to be rewriting the script that they guys who penned Spidey 2 wrote originally.

    We’ll see.
