Top ‘o the morning Towelites!! It’s time once again to round up the latest news and rumors surrounding Marvel Studios Phase 2!!
A few rumors and some speculation have been surrounding the latest film in the Iron Man series. First up the Funko toys, that we showed you the other day, will be featuring an Iron Man in a space suit so everyone is assuming that he will be crossing paths with the Guardians of the Galaxy at some point in the film, speculation. People want to see other Avengers in the film and they ain’t letting this one go, here is an excerpt from Robert Downey Jr’s interview with EW:
The whole Avengers thing [with $1.5 billion in global box office was such a relief and such a confirmation of [Marvel Studios President] Kevin Feige’s vision for this all along. As Kevin has put it, the next step after that is to bring in someone like Shane Black and – without pretending that the Avengers don’t exist – find a way to go back to a kind of re-investigation of Tony’s world, which he thought would be, one, fun for the audience and, two, would rock in a different way than The Avengers. But we can’t help it — everywhere you look now in every Marvel movie there are opportunities where certain new pals of his could be useful. So they’re in the atmosphere, so to speak, but I wouldn’t expect to see them on the ground in this one.

Thor: The Dark World is just on the other end of this year, here is the first official pic featuring the God of Thunder and director Alan Taylor courtesy of Empire Magazine:
Marvel Studios executive producer Craig Kyle talked to Yahoo! about what we can expect to see in terms of “fantasy” in the upcoming sequel:
“By bringing director Alan Taylor into the mix, with his expertise on ‘The Sopranos,’ ‘Mad Men’ and ‘Game of Thrones,’ we came up with a take that allows us to get more into the nooks and crannies of Asgard and its people. We spend more time on the ground with the commoners, as opposed to in the palace.”
In the sequel we’ll get to see a “war scarred” Asgard, which has been attacked by the Marauders. This allows ”for the invasion of the Dark Elves, led by Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston).”
“It’s a very complicated blend [of genres: high science fiction, gritty fantasy, and realism], Thor’ is, until ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ hits, by far our most wild, fringe Marvel piece. But that’s why it’s the Marvel Universe and not Marvel Earth!”
