The Avengers 3


Captain America has come and gone. Now, it’s time for the great hordes of Marvel fans to shift their attention to the next film in Marvel’s two decades of future comic book films: Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s a film we really don’t know that much about. Sure, we have a trailer, but it’s a single trailer from a month and a half ago, and since then we’ve gotten so precious little. Just a “new clip,” if two seconds of new footage sewn onto half a stale trailer counts as a clip these days. And Nathan Fillion, hinting that he might have a line or two. “Check the credits,” he says, coyly. I’d check the credits if I could, Mr. Fillion. But I can’t, so instead I will languish away into a husk of my former self. But Entertainment Weekly has a big expose on Guardians of the Galaxy, and like any big print media story, it’s been savaged by digital media and stripped of all the juicy parts, long before it ever hits newsstands. So without further ado, thanks to MTV News, here’s every juicy part (suck it, print media):



Word around the campfire has been that Robert Downey Jr’s contract to play Tony Stark ran out after he starred in Iron Man 3, and the question of what that means for the future of the Iron Man franchise, as well as for future Avengers movies, has largely been lingering. Surely after the money-making bonanza that was The Avengers, Marvel wouldn’t let one of the most integral pieces of their puzzle walk away. But, on the other hand, after making them so much money Downey was likely going to be asking for a pretty penny to come back and do more, and Marvel has been notoriously stingy negotiators. The fact is, people’s worries about future Marvel movies having to go forward without Iron Man, or at least with a different Iron Man, weren’t completely unfounded. Today those worries can be laid to rest, however, because we’ve finally gotten word that Downey will indeed be coming back to play Tony Stark in more Marvel movies. In fact, he’s going to be coming back to play Tony Stark in at least two more.



Now that Joss Whedon’s superhero team-up movie, The Avengers, made well over a billion dollars worldwide, and Marvel’s next step in their ongoing saga, Iron Man 3, has opened overseas with numbers that put the film on track to make the studio gazillions more, it’s probably safe to say that there’s a lot of public interest concerning which direction things are going heading into The Avengers 2. And, lucky for us, Whedon has been pretty generous when it comes to answering questions. When he talked to Collider on the red carpet of the Iron Man 3 premier, he hinted at the fact that he might be adding Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch to the Avengers roster in his upcoming sequel, and it seems that when Desde Hollywood talked to him at the same event, he even talked a bit about his plans for the Avengers’ arch-villain, Thanos, who made his appearance in the after-credits sequence of the first film.
