CROSSBONES? DAMAGE CONTROL? Find Out Which Marvel "One Shot" Could Be Next
It turns out that Drew Pearce has been trying to write and direct a "One Shot" for Marvel since his (currently shelved) script for Runaways was picked up. As well as stating that he's still hopeful that a Runaways movie will eventually see the light of day, he drops the names of a few characters that were the focus of some of his other scripts before Sir Ben Kingsley's involvement pushed All Hail The King to the top of the queue.
While talking to Total Film, Iron Man 3 and All Hail The King scribe Drew Pearce reveals that he's written "lots" of other shorts for Marvel. Although there's no guarantee any of them will get made, he spills the names of a few possibilities.
"One was Sin and Crossbones (from Captain America). I love Jessica Jones, and while obviously Jessica Jones and Alias is NOW going to exist in the Netflix part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), I'd always obsessively been trying to put her in stuff I'd been working with Marvel on… but about three or four other ones, too. My Marvel obsession with Damage Control is still there… but it's pretty difficult to make into a short. The clue is in the title that you have to do a lot of damage to then control it - and that's not really in the budget of a short movie. I just think it's got huge potential as a franchise."
If we were to see one of the above I'd say Crossbones (who will be introduced in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) would be most likely. So far the One Shots tend to have focused on previously established characters such as Peggy Carter and Phil Coulson, so it would be something new for Marvel to introduce the likes of Jessica Jones before we'd so much as had a glimpse of her in a movie - but with her tv series now in development, who knows? These names are just the latest in a long line of possibilities for these short films though...who do you hope to see get the One Shot treatment next?
