Yesterday, Marvel released the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled box set including many awesome bonus features. The set contains a video titled “Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase Two Preview,” introducing extended footage from Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, concept art from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Ant-Man as well as interviews with the directors.
It is clear Marvel has plans to make a crap load of money off us for a long long time! Phase Two includes plans through 2015 when Avengers 2 hits. I have a feeling we can anticipate many more phases- hopefully the next one will feature Black Panther! I am also still yearning for a reboot on the Howard the Duck franchise(They actually could give Howard an easy cameo in the Guardians film)!
I am very intrigued by the fact that Ant-Man, Henry Pym, looks so cool and impressive, because when I think of the comic version of his character all I can think of is a mentally obsessed wife beater (he will always be a schmuck to me, no matter how much his character grows.) If they turn his character into a cool good guy, it would be disturbing due to his domestic abuse past.
Check out the footage bellow as well as great stills taken from the footage. What do you guys think? Who are you hoping for in Phase Three?
