One of the biggest reasons Marvel Studios is dominating the landscape of comic book movies is its strategy. The studio releases films in "phases," planning their next films years in advance to allow time to select the right writers, directors and cast. And now Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has revealed that they've got films planned all the way through 2021.
While DC assembles its team for the 'Justice League' movie for a 2015 release, Marvel is busy doing the same. Aside from 'The Avengers 2' and the even more upcoming 'Iron Man 3,' 'Thor 2' and 'Captain America 2' flicks, Marvel Studios is busy trying to fill the cast of their next superhero movie 'Guardians of the Galaxy.'
It was discovered only a few weeks ago that a handful of actors were being considered for the lead role of Peter Quill, but it looks like we might be seeing a familiar face getting the gig as Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been thrown into the casting pool.
'Iron Man 3' begins production in Beijing today and already there's at least one surprise we've discovered -- the appearance of a new villain for Tony Stark? While speculation about other upcoming superhero flicks like 'Man of Steel' and 'Justice League' have been rumored to feature a hidden villain, the same seems to be true for 'Iron Man 3' now that new pics have recently been released. Click ahead to find out who has been cast.
It's been a while since we last learned or saw anything new from the God of Thunder's next adventure in 'Thor 2.' We've been hearing all about this "Dark World" he's supposed to go venturing off in after the evil Dark Elves, but aside from a crowded fight scene and some pics of the set, we've had to rely on our imaginations as to how Malekith and his followers look... until now! Get a load of the first Dark Elf pics.
As the world knows already, character actor Frank Grillo was recently cast as the villainous Crossbones in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' These days, when you're lucky enough to find yourself in a Marvel movie, it seems as though you're gearing up not just for one flick, but for two or three. (Unless you're Hugo Weaving.) So does that indicate that Grillo's Crossbones will be making an appearance in a certain mega-gigantic-super-sequel that is scheduled for a May 1, 2015 release?
We've been preoccupied with the 'Iron Man 3' trailer and movie pics these past few days, but now its time to set our sights on the God of Thunder. 'Thor 2,' dubbed 'The Dark World,' is currently shooting in Iceland, which we've already seen through tons of set pics and behind-the-scenes footage leaking out of the woodwork. But who's ready now for some 'Thor: The Dark World' spoilers?
The 'Iron Man 3' trailer officially debuted last night and if you haven't yet, we suggest you go take a look: it's pretty awesome. And after you've seen the trailer, it's time to go frame-by-frame through some HD screencaps to see what secrets the 'Iron Man 3' trailer reveals about the film.
Don't you just love how the 'Iron Man 3' folks keeping pelting us with tease after tease the day before we're supposed to see the official trailer? First it was the teaser to the trailer, which was unlocked only after everyone "liked" 'Iron Man' on Facebook, then came movie pics, then came the first look at Ben Kingsley as Mandarin, then came the first official poster for 'Iron Man 3,' and now... some more footage for you to enjoy!
