"Man-Thing" sunbaking on Manly Beach?

Brett Leonard recently announced plans to direct a feature film version of Marvel comics "Man-Thing". Fangoria caught up with Marvel Studios Executive Vice President Kevin Feige today and asked for a progress report. "We hope to shoot in Australia this summer," Feige says. "It’s a very different kind of movie, a very small movie." "It’s a very different feel for us," Feige enthuses. "It’s just sort of taking a character that has been very popular over the years within the comic audiences that’s very well-known – less so outside of that into the mainstream audiences – and doing what we think will be a very unique horror film."
