Marvelous

After this weekend's smashingly successful launch of Iron Man, Marvel Studios has wasted little time in announcing an ambitious slate of other films based on Marvel Comics. Naturally, there will be an Iron Man II (set for April 30, 2010). Also upcoming: Thor (June 4, 2010), The First Avenger: Captain America (May 6, 2011), The Avengers (July 2011) -- no, not those Avengers -- and Ant-Man (date to be announced). All this, in addition to The Incredible Hulk, due June 13 at theaters and drive-ins everywhere.

This is great news for comic book geeks (and former geeks, like myself) everywhere. But am I the only one who's wondering how Marvel will avoid catching flack from fundamentalists with a movie about a super hero who is identified as... well, a god?
