Producer Kevin Feige confirms the main characters in the Avengers movie. "It’s three people – four including the Hulk; five including Nick Fury – who you’ve seen before in other movies, coming together for the very first time.” I can only hope that this movie is as good as Ultimate Avengers animated movie.

In the works as expected. Currently Michael Bay is moving along with the script and scouting locations for Transformers 3: Chicago, Detroit, and Washington D.C. I really enjoyed the first two Transformers movies my main concern is in the script. (via SCI FI Wire)
Conan the Barbarian
Jason Momoa has been cast as the New Conan The Barbarian. I'm excited with that pick. Jason's a great guy, talented actor and can physically fill the role of Conan. Most are familiar with him playing as Ronon Dex from Stargate: Atlantis (via /Film)
A Mortal Kombat redo is in the works, they have selected a writer Oren Uziel. The hope at /Film is that he will bring more depth to the Mortal Kombat movies then the previous films. I like the idea of adding more story depth to the Mortal Kombat movies but that can not be at the cost of loosing what made the series so great. They are so much fun to watch.
