While the release of [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035) in mere weeks signifies the end of Marvel Studios' biggest source of suspense since its release of the first Avengers film, today comes as a major tease in the beginning of the beginning of Phase 3. First, images of a poorly hidden STARK Industries logo hung on Boston's Gillette Stadium have surfaced online, marking the beginning of production for [Captain America: Civil War](movie:994409).
Along with this start, it appears none other than the one and only Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr., has declared that tomorrow will come a huge announcement. Last time he told us he had something big, we got the best trailer release in the world. However, with the Avengers' third and final trailer having been released earlier this day, it seems this time will be an actual announcement, and clues are being posted via twitter, using pieces of the character posters of each of the Avengers. Take a look:
Does anyone have any idea what this means? Could it be related to the beginning of the Civil War? It appears that both Hawkeye and Iron Man have been teased in the backgrounds of these teases at tomorrow's big announcement.
Could we be getting the first confirmations as to who's on whose side in the war, or confirmation of [Captain Marvel](movie:949779)'s appearance in the film, or the highly hoped for yet surely unlikely announcement of the casting for the brand new Spider-Man. Still, Spider-Man is the only superhero getting his own movie before Avengers 3 (part 1) whose casting hasn't been announced. Can you decode the clues? If you run across any more or figure it out, tell us in the comments below!
Robert Downey Jr. can no longer be trusted. This "big announcement" was little more than yet another announcement that the Avengers would be appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live on April 13th & Good Morning America on a date that I was too disappointed to continue paying attention long enough to hear. Still, it's exciting to know Civil War has started filming, especially for Georgia locals, as the film with be filmed and produced here at the new Pinewood Studios Atlanta, which also produced Ant-Man late last year.
