uhh…so now David Tennant is leaving Doctor Who, after filming the four movies that will constitute the abbreviated 5th season. Only a few weeks ago, the story was the BBC would be throwing vast wads o’ cash to keep Tennant through 2011, but apparently the right figure couldn’t be agreed upon, or maybe there’s something to the Tennant/Moffat tension stories?
Or maybe, as many fans have speculated/hoped, he’ll be otherwise occupied in 2o1o, shooting his role as the Riddler in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight follow-up?
Marvel’s The Avengers movie already has a scheduled release date ( July 15, 2011 ), and an executive producer in place, with Jon Favreau. It’s not impossible that pre-production and scheduling are already underway for the potential 2011 release.
