According to Movie Pilot, Marvel recently filed trademarks for the following properties. Granted, it’s not indicated whether these are comic or movie related trademarks, but given how some of these properties have been around in the comics for a while, and are an outright odd bunch – is it worth looking into? They would certainly be interesting, and seemingly reveal some projects we certainly weren't expecting...

  • Age Of Ultron
  • Alpha Flight
  • Black Panther
  • Guardians Of The Galaxy
  • New Warriors
  • Rocket Raccoon
  • Strikeforce Morituri
  • Journey Into Mystery
  • Irredeemable Ant Man

Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Guardians Of The Galaxy are expected, but Alpha Flight? Black Panther? Strikeforce Morituri? A little further digging on Movie Pilot’s part indicates that the projects all have some relevance to Marvel Studios. The upcoming Big Hero 6 is an Alpha Flight spin-off, and Strikefiorce Morituri was in development as a TV show at one point!

“And finally, the oddball of the bunch, Strikeforce Morituri. This one definitely caught me off guard and had me baffled for a while until I found this TV series information: In 2003, the Sci Fi Channel announced it was developing 1000 Days, a live-action TV movie and backdoor pilot based on Strikeforce: Morituri, in which near-future soldiers gain enhanced abilities but die 1,000 days later. Written by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum, it was a Reveille Productions and Marvel Studios co-production executive produced by Reveille head Ben Silverman and Marvel Studios' Avi Arad and Rick Ungar. Waterman Entertainment optioned the series, with the initial plan being to start production in December 2011.” - MoviePilot

 
The full article is definitely worth a read, so head over to Movie Pilot to find out more about the trademarks. Again – this could, and probably is, nothing – but it’s fun to speculate! Marvel’s next live-action property to hit the big screen is the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, which is set to hit theatres August 1st, 2014.

In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan. In order to evade Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a group of misfits including Gamora, Rocket, Drax the Destroyer, and Groot. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy's fate in the balance. Guardians Of The Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin. Guardians Of The Galaxy opens August 1st, 2014.

You never know.

"Irredeemable Ant Man"

Mrsinister - 6/5/2014, 2:13 PM
Wouldn't Alpha Flight belong to fox since they are mutants?
Scorn - 6/5/2014, 2:15 PM
Strikeforce Morituri? That's a very obscure choice.
Bazinga - 6/5/2014, 2:15 PM
"Irredeemable Ant Man"
Funny Really GIF
NovaCorpsFan - 6/5/2014, 2:16 PM
HAHA Irredeemable! Oh, the irony.
TheAbaryMan369 - 6/5/2014, 2:17 PM
"Irredeemable" Ant-Man.......

Oh god
MyNameIsSid - 6/5/2014, 2:18 PM
Please let Alpha Flight be made
Reasonnnn - 6/5/2014, 2:19 PM
THEY SHOULD TOTALLY CHANGE ANT-MAN TO IRREDEEMABLE ANT-MAN
KidGoku - 6/5/2014, 2:22 PM
Black Panther!
MrBlackjack - 6/5/2014, 2:23 PM
Oh, that Antman one is gonna make this an interesting thread (to say the least)!
MrFridayNights - 6/5/2014, 2:23 PM
But Alpha Flight would be better in the X-Men cinematic universe.
The Runaways would be the next big thing in the CBM genre.
BritishMonkey - 6/5/2014, 2:26 PM
New Warriors would be great to see.
Shroombeast - 6/5/2014, 2:26 PM
Moviepilot.com reporting on something before comicbookmovie.com does? Moviepilot, who reports on every peice of news 5 days after everyone else? HAHAAHAHA HAHA HA HAHAHA HA HAAAA!
batz11 - 6/5/2014, 2:28 PM
New Warriors, please be true, Nova, Tigra ftw...
blackandyellow - 6/5/2014, 2:29 PM
No Heroes for Hire?

SoundWave - 6/5/2014, 2:31 PM
Black Panther!!!!!!!!!!!
KingNTheKong - 6/5/2014, 2:35 PM
If so.......


BLACK PANTHER!!!!
CherryBomb - 6/5/2014, 2:36 PM
Alpha Flight would be amazing for Wolverine 3.
sameoldthing - 6/5/2014, 2:37 PM
I like the idea of Marvel making more TEAM films.
That's a great way to intro many characters into the Cinematic Universe.
If one character really works..solo spin-off movie.


sKeemAn - 6/5/2014, 2:38 PM
Lets tell Feige how "Ireedemable" Ant-Man is...

Good to see BP on this list. New Warriors is different wasn't expecting that one. Journey into Mystery should be a tv show. that would be awesome. Strikeforce Morituri is a really oddball choice. that is way from left field I wonder what they will do with that project.
wookiefit76 - 6/5/2014, 2:39 PM
mmmmmhhh! Maybe!

Alpha flight could work but they might fall under the X banner. If Marvel could use them, I'd use the Wolverine story origin from his 1st appearance where he was a skilled fighter with NON-retractable claws. Tyhe claws were attached to his gloves.
Interestein - 6/5/2014, 2:41 PM
I'd be cool with any of these coming to film, AWESOME!
sameoldthing - 6/5/2014, 2:41 PM
Journey Into Mystery could be a great anthology film franchise with several characters getting the movie treatment in short segments.

Maybe 3 characters each getting about 45 min. stories.
Showcase villains as well as heroes too..that would kick ass.
jamesbrando3 - 6/5/2014, 2:41 PM
I'm pretty sure Marvel Studious surreptitiously own the rights to Alpha Flight and not Fox...
Didn't Agents Of Sheild name drop Department H right before the season finale? None of the Easter eggs in Marvel Studios content are done on accident, they all seed things to come in my opinion.
Interestein - 6/5/2014, 2:41 PM
THOR: JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY could be THOR III's title, as AGE OF ULTRON lacks the AVENGERS name.
blackandyellow - 6/5/2014, 2:44 PM
I don't think these are for movies. I think this is just procedural posturing for Disney to lock up their intellectual property.
ekrolo2 - 6/5/2014, 2:45 PM
what the [frick]ing hell is strikeforce morituri?!
wookiefit76 - 6/5/2014, 2:47 PM
wasn't new warriors rumored at one point for a netflix series? maybe I'm wrong?
ekrolo2 - 6/5/2014, 2:48 PM
@Superhero96

That would be nice seeing as MCU has utterly shafted EVERY [frick]ing Thor character whose not Thor or Loki.
DeusExSponge - 6/5/2014, 2:50 PM
Alpha Flight?! Damn, I remember someone telling me Fox had the rights to them.
DukeAcureds - 6/5/2014, 2:55 PM
So what's the difference between Alpha Flight and X-Force inasmuch as movie rights go? Because they're both X-books, but not X-Men books. Are they both co-owned? Along with things like Generation X (who Fox probably won't be doing, due to Emma Frost and Banshee both being dead, now)? And X-Factor? Deadpool?!?
ComicBookConnections - 6/5/2014, 2:57 PM
Irredeemable Ant Man makes sense...Scott Lang originally steals the suit right? something that would need to be redeemed
jmartinez986 - 6/5/2014, 2:58 PM
journey into mistery would be more relatable to Dr. Strange since it is going to deal with magic and the "miestrious journey" he is going to embark once gaining his powers...
DukeAcureds - 6/5/2014, 2:59 PM
Every body in Hollywood is only too aware of how irredeemable Ant-Man is, right now.
String - 6/5/2014, 3:03 PM
I think Alpha Flight is a preventative measure to keep FOX would incorporating them into their universe. The only character I see being a problem is Northstar due to his immersion in the X-Men comics -and probably Aurora due to the sibling connection. But I can see the rest of the characters as being pretty easy being incorporated into the MCU if Marvel decided to do a movie. Hopefully, the Northstar and Aurora issue could be like a shared issue. I'm going to bet that Singer is going to make every effort to get these two into the X-men films as soon as possible.
DeusExSponge - 6/5/2014, 3:11 PM
If this is true, I would love to see Guardian in the MCU! Represent!!!
MrBlackjack - 6/5/2014, 3:23 PM
Id but more excited (Black [frick]ing Panther!!!) but it is Moviepilot, so I'd don't have much hope of this being true.
MrBlackjack - 6/5/2014, 3:24 PM
*I'd be
