Breaking, from San Diego Comic Con. Marvel Studios has
four five films in active development. They are calling this grouping of films Phase Two.
First up. May 3rd, 2013: Iron Man 3, directed by Shane Black. Don Cheadle returns as War Machine. It sounds like Sir Ben Kingsley is indeed playing the Mandarin, with a visual of ten mystical rings.
November 8th, 2013: Thor: The Dark World, directed by Game of Thrones’ Alan Taylor.
Next, on April 4th, 2014: Captain America: The Winter Soldier from directors Joe and Anthony Russo (Arrested Development, Community).
And…finally on August 1st, 2014: Guardians of the Galaxy, featuring: Drax, Groot, Starlord, Gamora, and Rocket Raccoon. No idea about the director, but reports suggest Nicole Perlman wrote a very exciting script.
Oh, and Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man. That’s happening too. Wright showed the notorious test footage for fans in attendance.
Finally, we’ve got some Charlie Wen concept art from Guardians of the Galaxy!
