Every few months, someone on the internet loudly declares that we're probably nearing the end of the superhero movie as a popular genre. And then, every few months, another trailer arrives that proves that we're going to be watching movies starring people wearing capes and tights for a long time yet. The new trailer for 'Avengers 2' lit the internet on fire, as you'd expect from the sequel to one of the most popular blockbusters in recent years. In fact, if success can be measured in trailer views, then Marvel and Disney can already call this one a big winner.

Once upon a time, as Edgar Wright left 'Ant-Man' and their upcoming superhero movie was crumbling to pieces, the film's star Paul Rudd reached out directly to his 'Anchorman' director Adam McKay to see if he would be interested in filling in. McKay was interested (he's a big comic book fan), met with Marvel and was quickly offered the job. Negotiations began. Everyone assumed this was happening. And then, McKay "abruptly" pulled out of talks with Marvel, deciding not to move forward with the project. But, after that brief flirtation, could he return to direct another Marvel movie?

As successful as 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was at the box-office (and, as the highest-grossing film of the year, it certainly was that), the film's iconic soundtrack was equally as successful. "Awesome Mix Vol. 1" spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and is currently the 10th largest selling album of 2014. You've been able to buy the digital album, the CD, vinyl and even a "Deluxe Edition," but so far, no actual cassette like the mix tape in the film. But, that's all about to change.

A few days ago, Marvel Studios' executive vice president of visual effects and post-production spoke at the Visual Effects Society Production Summit. Although most of her speech was industry inside baseball, she did drop one interesting factoid that should prove interesting to news-hungry superhero nerds: 'Avengers 2' will feature more special effects shots than any other Marvel movie so far.
