Hey Towelites! Time to round up all the latest news and rumors from the Marvel movie universe!
Edger Wright’s Ant Man has been in development for a LONG time, but this week the film has finally received a release date. The magic day will be November 6th, 2015. Now wait you say! Isn’t that after The Avengers 2, and isn’t this technically during Phase 3? No one can say for sure at this point or how the movie will relate to either phase, I am just happy that we will be seeing the adaptation brought to life!!
Captain America: The First Avenger was probably the surprise hit of Phase 1, and in my opinion, Hugo Weaving had a lot to do with that. His representation of the Red Skull was both frightening and comical (his German accent), we would all love to see him in the role again but according to an interview with Collider we may not have the privilege. Here’s an excerpt:
I [signed a multi-picture deal] for Captain America. I think the tendency, with those films, would be to probably not bring a villain back. They might for The Avengers, but I didn’t think I’d be in Captain America 2 or 3. I don’t think Red Skull will be there. And it’s not something I would want to do again. I’m glad I did it. I did sign up for a number of pictures and I suppose, contractually, I would be obliged to, if they forced me to, but they wouldn’t want to force someone to do it, if they didn’t want to. I think I’ve done my dash with that sort of film. It was good to do it and try it out, but to be honest, it’s not the sort of film I seek out and really am excited by. As an actor, to do all sorts of different films is great. It stretches you in different ways. But, I increasingly like to go back to what I used to always do, which is to get involved with projects that I really have a personal affiliation with.
Two great looking promo posters for the new Iron Man movie, first up is promo art of the new, previously rumored, War Machine ‘Iron Patriot ‘armor. The second is Tony Stark in his newest armor!! Looking forward to next week’s movie poster and teaser trailer!
