Four contenders in particular have either met or are about to meet with Marvel higher-ups to bring the adventures of Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme to the screen: Mark Andrews, who co-wrote and co-directed Pixar’s Brave; Nikolaj Arcel, who wrote and directed last year’s best foreign film Oscar-nominated entry A Royal Affair; Dean Israelite, the helmer behind Paramount’s upcoming sci-fi time-travel movie Welcome to Yesterday; and Jonathan Levine, the filmmaker behind Warm Bodies and 50/50.
Jon Aibel and Glenn Berger, the writers behind the Kung Fu Panda movies, are also in the mix, not to direct the movie but to pen the screenplay.

Marvel has released the first line of dialogue from the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ character in the form of a 30-second behind the scenes spot.
Trailer: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy' - Aug 1
Directed by James Gunn, written by Nicole Perlman and Gunn, starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, Djimon Hounsou, Michael Rooker, John C Reilly, Dave Bautista, Peter Serafinowicz, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.
If this isn’t Marvel’s biggest gamble yet, I don’t know what is. That said, I have the utmost faith in the studio and Gunn that this will deliver. The predominantly slow, comedic tone of this trailer is pretty different for Marvel, but not in a bad way. They’re mixing it up, while staying true to their overall brand. Very much on board (or you could say hooked on a feeling) based on the sheer audacity.

Deathlok has come to “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
A classic Marvel Comics icon who is celebrating his 40th anniversary this year, Deathlok will be brought to live-action life for first time ever on the all-new episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” premiering Tuesday, February 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
Transformed into the cybernetic solider against his will, Mike Peterson (J. August Richards) must struggle to find the man in the machine. With a high-tech eye that allows him to see through walls, super strength and increased speed courtesy of a cybernetic leg, will Deathlok fight alongside the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or against them?
"We have been waiting all season for this moment where we can reveal that Mike Peterson’s story arc is an origin story," said Executive Producer Jeffrey Bell. "We’re thrilled to have J. August Richards playing Deathlok and to have our audience enjoy this favorite Marvel character on the show."
"If you would have asked when I was nine-years old what I wanted to be, I would have said a super hero and I’m so excited to be one now as an adult on TV!" added J. August Richards. "It’s a dream come true."
While that’s all we can reveal at the moment, True Believers, stay tuned to Marvel.com for more updates and follow @AgentsofSHIELD on Twitter and like "Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." on Facebook for all the latest news!
