Production Update: Marvel Studio

Published on March 27th, 2009

As Variety reports, “gathering of scribes will help Marvel come up with creative ways to launch its lesser-known properties, such as Black Panther, Cable, Doctor Strange, Iron Fist, Nighthawk and Vision.”. This is to help  people at outside that fanboy world may not know.

Sure I would love to see a good Iron Fist or a Cable ( Ron Perlman please) television show but Vision ? I don’t think so. Here is the best part of this story it looks like the people over at Marvel are asking some fan favorite  to work on this new projects yet there is a catch.

“Before the writers are even allowed to come in and meet, they must sign a non-disclosure agreement and a 70-page, non-negotiable contract,” reports Deadline Hollywood Daily’s Nikki Finke. “Among other things, the contract gives Marvel ownership over everything the writers create during the one year term of [the] deal, plus a first look and last refusal to any and all projects the writers have previously written or will write for 24 months in the future.”

I love the idea but it sounds a lot like the old Hollywood system back in the 1930’s.
