I look toward the looming Marvel movie which will fly in only 2 years from now,
I think about what it will be. The
landscape now is extremely interesting; Tony Stark has now been re-signed, and
the Captain has his new movie coming next summer. The Hulk doesn’t have anything ahead until
the Avengers Round 2 in 2015, so what about the rest of the gang?
I’m sure you know Thor: The Dark World is scheduled for release this Fall. Marvel recently had a conversation with Vin Diesel, who didn’t announce what role he will be playing in Marvel’s Universe. He could be a key player in the success that Marvel may or may not have in the box office for the next couple years. Another interesting piece of the Avengers 2 puzzle is some on-set pictures caught of Rogers and the BLACK WIDOW kissing. Now that will make some splashes down the line if becomes a part of Captain America’s dynamic character.
Joss Whedon has also been very busy prepping for the Avengers 2. He recently said that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be joining the team, making the team bigger and stronger than ever. Not very much has been said about Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury but I’m sure Marvel has a big role for him in the next meeting up of the Avengers. I mentioned the role the Black Widow will be playing with the first Avenger, but besides that glimpse of the future we don’t know much about her character.
Another interesting tidbit is that Joss Whedon has thrown Thor’s half brother and nemesis Loki out of the Avengers 2 picture. That means Loki’s role in the upcoming Thor film is EXTRA important, and it also begs to question to who the villain will be in the flick. I guess that will be left up to Whedon and the rest of his team.
The biggest thing that will shape The Avengers second gathering, to me, is the new show S.H.I.E.L.D. The return of Agent Coulson will be cool to watch, especially if the show is renewed all the way up to the dawn of the Avengers 2. Another question arising from the TV show is whether they will ever use REAL Marvel Superheroes...?
Really, we discover more everyday about this upcoming
film. Stay tuned for more updates on
Marvel’s the Avengers 2! We won’t know
what to expect until May 1st, 2015, which means I can’t wait to see
what they have up their sleeves.
