Marvel Movies Update; Bad Timing for Hamm?

6 05 2009

Comingsoon.net dispensed some details about the Marvel properties getting the Hollywood treatment through 2012 after listening to Marvel’s quarterly earnings call this week. Kenneth Branagh’s “Thor” starts filming in Q1 2010, and Joe Johnston’s “The First Avenger: Captain America” will start filming in summer 2010. Cast confirmations will be coming sooner for “Thor” than for “Captain America,” it seems. So figure that Steve Rogers will have a prominent role in “The Avengers,” what with him being the leader of the team, and all that. And whoever stars in “Captain America” will probably jump right into “The Avengers.”

This may not play so well for our guy, Jon Hamm, depending on how his “Mad Men” schedule works out. Season three of the series about 60s-era Madison Avenue advertising execs just started filming a week ago, and it will premiere on AMC in August. If a fourth season is a go and films on the same timetable, it is possible that Jon Hamm would not be able to film Mad Men in the spring, then leap into Captain America, then film The Avengers, and then back to a possible fifth season of the show.

Anything is possible, of course, but it is something to keep in mind. The good thing is that we still won’t have casting news of Captain America easily until Autumn of this year. Let’s just keep spreading the word and being positive. Don’t forget, Jon Hamm Should Play Captain America!
