"Today the Writers Guild of America (WGA) announced two new interim deals, one with Marvel Studios and another with Lionsgate. This is very good news for comic book fans as films as Marvel Studios Chairman David Maisel says, "We're very excited about our summer releases, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, and look forward to resuming work with writers on our future projects including Captain America, Thor, Ant-Man, and The Avengers."
From what I understand, Iron Man was finished prior to the strike, but I wouldn't be surprised if Louis Letterier took the opportunity to go back and reshoot some scenes from The Incredible Hulk had there been some that just didn't quite work, but couldn't be changed due to the strike. This is just speculation of course, but it shows the importance of such interim deals and why people are anxious to see the AMPTP and WGA come to an agreement and end this strike."
