The article reports that Marvel's "Iron Man" is the first film to claim a date in 2008. The film is slated to debut on the first weekend of May 2008. The comicbook company aims to show it is moving ahead with its internally financed film slate, despite the departure of former executive Avi Arad. Marvel has yet to acquire funding for "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk." Marvel has established a credit facility for its 10-picture slate with Merrill Lynch in April 2005.
