Avengers Assemble!

Zak Penn, in a panel at the Los Angeles Film Festival, is going to bring great hope and joy to comic geeks everywhere. Penn, you may already know, served as a writer on some pretty botched comic book movies, mostly due to studio interference. He was brought in to try to clean up the horrid Elektra script, wrote the very good X-Men II script, and had his script for X3 defiled by the drunken ass-monkeys at Fox.

Now, he's writing The Avengers for Marvel Studios. The creation of Marvel Studios is probably one of the best things that could have happened, because, well, they actually seem to give a shit. They're actively trying to link together the stories for Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, and Captain America, so they can make a balls-out Avengers film. Check out Penn's comment from the panel:

"They're doing Captain American and Thor first, and then Avengers is coming out. They want to see that they're all connected, not like the Fantastic Four can't come into the X-Men world, like I was told. I'm taking a meeting next week with the Thor and Captain America people, and we are all going to get together, and I will see what is going to happen. I'll see where they are leaving the characters; it's pretty complicated...There's a board that is tracking what is happening...Marvel is autonomous now. It is night and day: Everyone has read every comic. They know how to make a cool movie."

Oh. Oh yes. Oh... yessss.
