Attention Marvel Fans!

Thought Iron Man was a fantastically, awesomely, astronomically, brilliantly, MARVELously great movie? If yes, then you can look forward to a comic book moviefest by Marvel in the next couple of years. There's been plenty of speculation since Iron Man but the line up of movies look tantalizing.

Well lets start with the rest of this year. The end of 2008 will only see one Marvel movie- Punisher: War Zone.

In 2009, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is scheduled for a May 1 release. This will be the first of a few more X-Men spin offs, the next one being X-Men Origins: Magneto then X-Men: First Class. X-Men Origins: Wolverine will see Hugh Jackman reprise his role as the iconic Wolverine. So will Ian McKellen as Magneto. Also scheduled for release is the sequel to the Nicholas Cage flick, Ghost Rider.

In 2010, the line up really kicks into gear with...yeah you guessed it, Iron Man 2 with a planned May 7 release. This will be the second movie to an Iron Man trilogy. And in this one, its said that Tony Stark will be troubled by alcoholism. Ooooh. Can't wait.

July 16 2010 is the proposed date for the release of Thor. Followed by The First Avenger: Captain America on May 6 2011 and then finally The Avengers on July 15th the same year.

Other movies that will possibly be released in the not so distant future are Ant-Man, Ghost Rider 2, Spider-Man 4 (May 2011) and 5 (possibly filmed back-to-back) with Tobey Maguire reportedly being offered $50 million to do both the films.

Other ones to look out for within the next 5 years is Iron Man 3, Nick Fury and a Spider-Man spin off, Venom.

A lot of rumors and speculation but tasty, mouth-watering rumors and speculation nonetheless. One thing's for sure though, expect no less than SEVEN Marvel comic-adapted films between now and 2011.

It is a great time for Marvel fans as well as general comic fans alike.
