That's a really odd choice.  I wonder what he'll do with it?  It could turn out to be Ang Lee's Hulk or it could become Kenneth Branagh's Thor.

Ang Lee did a fine job - he just didn`t pander to the ždea of 2.5 hours of the hulk smashing everything in sight.

I admit i didn`t like the resizing thing, but that`s a quibble.

Hulk dogs alone were enough to damn the film, but creating a Hulk film with a heavily dramatic centerpiece on fatherhood that would have felt forced and stupid in a non-Hulk film was the icing on the cake.

Branagh created a 2 hour or so film that had relatively little smashing AND dealt with similar themes of family and he still managed to capture the spirit of the character and the comics perfectly.

I love Lee's work.  Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon ranks up there as one of my favorites of all time.  But his take on the Hulk was just awful.

Duncan Jones is a talented director on the rise. Have you all seen 'Moon'? 'Source Code' was also quite decent. I think this movie is still in capable hands.

it'll be interesting to see how he handles big action sequences.

I'm all for adding dramatic centerpieces to action films and not pandering.  Ang Lee's Hulk failed on way more levels than that.  It's just not very good at all.

Yeah, I really liked Moon and thought that Source Code was much better than expected.  I'm at least interested to see what he will do with this one.

they are currently planning to start shooting Q1 2014.  I imagine if they have a Blizzcon next year that will be where they have a big reveal for the movie's trailer.

Hmm, I wonder what they will do for a game tie-in?  WoW is losing players pretty quickly these days and likely won't be a big market in more than 2 years time.

some confirmed casting.

Quote
The film is now set to star Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel (from the Vikings TV show), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Rob Kazinskey (Pacific Rim) and Toby Kebbell (The Counsellor). Furthermore, discussions are nearly done with Dominic Cooper - soon to be seen again in Captain America: The Winter Soldier - as well.

OMG... Saw some footage of this today at Blizzcon and it looked awesome. They even showed a short bit with some updated cgi of a scene with Durotan and Draka. We only have to wait about another year and a half... Can't wait.
