Marvel signs interim WGA deal
Marvel Comics and Lionsgate have signed interim deals with the striking Writers Guild of America, the Associated Press reports.
While Marvel is a smaller studio, this allows them to move forward on upcoming projects including Captain America, Thor, Ant-Man, and The Avengers.
As of March, writer David Self was the only name attached to Captain America, according to E! Online.
Writer Mark Protosevich is attached to write “Thor,” to be directed by Matthew Vaughn (“Stardust”). Protosevich told the Chicago Tribune a while back that he was a comic book fan, and that Thor was his favorite character as a child, so, I’m sure he’s glad to have this issue resolved.
“Ant-Man” would be directed by Edgar Wright, who wrote a treatment way back in 2001. He told me in August that the film was based on the Scott Lang version of Ant-Man.
In the larger picture, the WGA’s divide-and-conquer strategy seems to be bearing dividends.
