The future of Marvel Studios is uncertain following Avengers 4 – as in we don’t know what they have planned – but according to a new rumor, they’ve apparently commissioned a Dark Avengers script!
The latest report comes from ThatHashtagShow, who writes:
Marvel Studios has developed and completed a script for an adaptation of Dark Avengers.
To be clear, Marvel Studios has many scripts for many projects, not all of which will make it to the big screen. It’s a smart move for the studio to commission as many scripts as possible knowing that at any time someone might come up with a take on an IP that blows people away while also knowing some of them will go straight to the bottom of the pile. We at That Hashtag Show don’t pretend to know where in that pile the Dark Avengers sits, only that a script for the IP was completed.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Dark Avengers, we have a summary for you:
Dark Avengers is an American comic book series published by Marvel Comics. It is part of a series of titles that have featured various iterations of the superhero team the Avengers. Unusually, the series stars a version of the team that, unknown to the public in its fictional universe, contains several members who are supervillains disguised as established superheroes.
The current members of the team are Captain Marvel (Moonstone), Scarlet Witch (Toxie Doxie), and Thor (Ragnarok). Past incarnations have included Ares (John Aaron), Captain Marvel (Noh-Varr), Hawkeye (Bullseye), Hawkeye (Trickshot), Hulk (Skaar), Ms. Marvel (Superia), Sentry (The Void), Spider-Man (Ai Apaec), Spider-Man (Venom), Wolverine (Daken) and Wolverine (Gorgon).
It would be an interesting movie for Marvel Studios, but now that they’re getting the rights back to Wolverine – could this be the way they decide to introduce him? As part of a team? Obviously it’s not even a sure thing that this will even be made, but like we said – it would be interesting.
