What’s up Towelites! It’s time once again to round up the latest news and rumors surrounding the upcoming onslaught of Marvel Studio’s Phase 2!
After the casting of Chris Pratt as the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel is looking to fill the other open roles so they can start production this June! Well exciting news has come down the pipeline, apparently Jason Mamoa of Stargate: Atlantis and Game of Thrones fame has tested for the role of Drax the Destroyer! I actually really like this and hope that it actually pans out! Mamoa is a decent actor and an all around badass, so I think that he could play everyone’s favorite green skinned, Thanos hating galactic warrior!

We showed you the Don Cheadle War Machine/Iron Patriot poster, now behold Guy Pierce as Aldrich Killian:
The filming of the pilot of S.H.I.E.L.D. just wrapped and everyone in the geek world is on the edges of their seats for any snippet of news on this hot property! Mastermind Joss Whedon had the following to say in an interview with TVLine in regards to his new show
“I’m excited about the show because it’s a very hopeful show,” he told TVLine over the weekend. “It’s not about murder, and it’s not about crime, and it’s not people looking into their own belly buttons. It’s about people who are trying to help each other, and that’s one of the things I loved about comic books. They had costumes and the villains were cool [but] they stood for something, and I like doing a show that does that. […] We’re trying very hard to be true to [Marvel’s] ethos and also to the structure of their universe. So it is definitely a Marvel show.”
So get excited Towelites!! Iron Man 3 will be here before you know it and Phase 2 will be in FULL SWING!!!! Catch up on all the news and rumors from Marvel Studios’ Phase 2 here!
