Astro Boy

Imagi has announced that Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Nathan Lane, Bill Nighy and Eugene Levy will join Freddie Highmore in the 2009 animated feature film being directed by David Bowers. The original series went on the US airwaves in 1963.

The Avengers

Kevin Feige told IGN this about the 2011 film: "Our instincts are definitely leading us towards some specific directions for it. It will be a challenge. But I think what we've done in the past, and particularly my experience on the X-Men films where we balanced, you know, 'X-Men 2' had half a dozen villains and more than a half a dozen heroes. And 'Avengers' won't have that many characters in it. More importantly, it'll be how does each character get their due. And frankly I think the joy of the 'Avengers' in addition to the splash-page, blow-out action scenes with all of them in the frame together, what I'm actually more excited about is the scene interactions between them because you don't find two more different people than Tony Stark and Steve Rogers as everybody knows who reads the comics."
