Even though 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' won't hit screens until 2015, the casting process is under way and Joss Whedon is looking for his Wanda Maximoff -- also known as The Scarlet Witch -- for the upcoming movie. Previously Saoirse Ronan was the top contender, but it appears she's passed and that the part may have been offered to Elizabeth Olsen.
'Avengers 2' doesn't hit theaters for over two years but that doesn't mean we can't start looking forward to the biggest sequel in modern movie history. With 'Thor 2,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'Captain America 2' all filming this year, a start of production on 'Avengers 2' can't be that far off and now we know when it will begin.
Hugo Weaving was fantastic as villain Red Skull in 'Captain America,' and the end of the movie left his future in the Marvel movie-verse uncertain, leaving us excited about his possible return. And now that return is seeming less likely, as Weaving says he's not interested in reprising the role.
'Guardians of the Galaxy' - Marvel's next original superhero movie - doesn't hit theaters until 2014 and little is known about the film except for what was revealed at Comic-Con - production art and the team's lineup. But now we might have an idea of the film's plot (and what it might mean for 'Avengers 2').
If you've been paying attention to the Marvel Universe lately, this news shouldn't surprise you but today we have word on what will be the next new (read: non-sequel) superhero movie from Marvel Studios. Hint: it's not 'Black Panther' or 'Ant-Man'...
Hey, guess what? 'Avengers 2' is happening. So are 'Thor 2' and 'Captain America 2.' These sequels should be no shock to you considering they have made over $500 gazillion at the box office (that's a rough estimate). But at a Disney presentation at the Cine 2012 conference in Italy, Disney head John Lasseter showed off the official logos for these Marvel sequels in the Disney timeline.
