SDCC 2014: Marvel Studios News

Come see what Marvel Studios reveals in San Diego Comic-Con's Hall H!

No modern Comic-Con is complete without massive announcements and teasers about upcoming comic book movies. Warner Bros teased audiences this morning by showing a little more from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and now it's Marvel Studios' turn to make the fans in Hall H go crazy with anticipation.

Based on various reports, the event opened up with a montage of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's timeline -- showing scenes from Phase 1 and then Phase 2. Then it jumps to some Guardians of the Galaxy footage (don't forget that comes out August 1st!). The video then ends with the universe's big bad, Thanos, sitting on his throne!

The President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, then kicked things off with ANT MAN's cast and director Peyton Reed. At this point, Ryan Penagos, a.k.a. Agent M, announces via twitter that the panel is all about 2015's movies. Now, we'll keep an eye out for the highlights and update as frequently as possible.

  • Yellowjacket Corey Stoll is Darren Cross, a.k.a. Yellowjacket. He'll be the villain.
  • Evangeline Lilly is Hope Van Dyme and she's Hank Pym's (Michael Douglas) daughter.
  • Paul Rudd says "he's excited by the challenges."
  • Ant-Man's a heist story.
  • Ant-Man to begin filming August 18.
  • Many actors from Avengers: Age of Ultron walk onto the stage (Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Colbie Smulders, James Spader, Sam Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen). Director Joss Whedon can't make because of knee surgery.
  • Renner says Downey Jr convinced him to take the role.
  • Evans says Cap is up to date with technology but he's still trying to find out where he belongs.
  • Spader says Ultron is 8 feet tall.
  • Footage plays of the Avengers tying to lift Mjolnir. Rhodey, Stark, Barton, and Banner can't. Cap makes it move a little.
  • Ulton is shown. According to Penagos, the villain says "There's only one path to peace. Your extinction."
  • Video includes Hulkbuster armor.
  • Footage ends with Tony Stark looking at dead Avengers.
  • Josh Brolin walks on the stage wearing an Infinity Gauntlet.
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2 set for July 28, 2017.

@ms-lola: maybe... its a guess... With Guardians 2 official set to July 28, 2017, and Feige saying that avengers 3 is in 3 years this is what makes sense to me, Captain Marvel between Guardians 2 and avengers 3 could make a stronger connection to the cosmic side of marvel Universe and Thanos.

Thor 3 also in 2017 before Guardians 2 makes sense because the infinity gauntlet its in Asgard, and by the end of the movie in a post credit scene someone could steal it, Hope Thor 3 is based in Ragnarok...

Captain America 3 its confirmed in 2016 and Doctor Strange its almost, already has a director must be in 2016.

Thank you for the information and the link. I'm impressed with the time-line you came up with, and choices made for future films.

@amazingwebhead: Agree ... only watch until episode 5, maybe in s02 with Thanos gets better, but the target audience will still be kids, my niece loves it and I m OK with it.

Well I don't have cable anymore (long story) but I'll try to look it up

@amazingwebhead: Yeah, I'm hoping the 2nd season does get better, with Thanos. I'm glad the show is successful with the younger crowd though- always glad to see something that inspires new generations of fans. But for the older fans, AEMH was where it was at.

Too true, man

Year to date, "Marvel's Avengers Assemble" is Disney XD's #1 animated series in Total Viewers (699,000) and Boys 6-14 (133,000/1.1 rating)...

Heck yeah, I love Avengers: EMH. And you're right, I can't forget Fenrir, or Ymir either. The episode adapting "The Ballad of Beta Ray Bill" was pretty freakin' awesome, too.

@winter_kills: Reminds me of that episode of the cartoon where the Avengers were all scattered across the nine realms.

Oh man, I love that episode! Loki shatters Cap's shield with Gungnir, then Cap fights with an Asgardian shield; Cap facing down Hela in Hel, Tony working with Eitri to build a new armor in Nidavellir, Hawkeye in Alfheim saying something like: "And there's an Elf looking at me funny!" Awesome stuff, awesome episode- I wish the Avengers Assemble show was more like this!

True dat.

@ivar17 said:

@winter_kills: @amazingwebhead: AEMH for me is the best cartoon that marvel ever made.

This new avengers assemble is to connect kids with the cinematic universe, still a good market strategy, because new generations (Star Wars) its now MARVEL C U.

I guess. But sometimes it just feels like marketing is all they're doing.

@ivar17: I think he meant a much earlier one back when Cap was wearing that black costume

Makes Sense. I made the most recent association... When comes to Thor and Cap I should know he wont make mistakes, my bad @winter_kills

No problem, my friend. Though I did love seeing Cap lift Mjolnir in Fear Itself.

@amazingwebhead:

I know man, that would make it my favorite Marvel movie, & it would recall that famous Mighty Thor issue where Cap lifted Mjolnir- which isn't just a great Thor story, but a great Cap story too.

Wasn't that in Fear Itself issue 7?

No Caption Provided

Now that we know that Cap shield will be broken in Avengers 2 like it was in comics by the serpente (Cul), how cool if cap s shield was fixed in Asgard and reinforced with Uru like in the mentioned Fear Itself.

That would be awesome! It would be cool seeing Cap or any of the Avengers in Asgard, & I always liked the warrior/worthiness bond that Cap & Thor have always had, & that would connect them even more, & be great to see on film.

Yep, that's Vision. I can see Vision clearly with my enhanced vision.

The more I hear about the Ant-Man movie, the more depressed I am. It's becoming more and more clear to me that Hollywood will never give the saga of Ant-Man the same respect that Ant-Man: Season One gave him.

Totally

Yeah, the jury's out on Ant-Man. It's the one MCU film that I'm really on the fence about. Going to have see more as time goes along. The Avengers: AOU image looks freakin' awesome. And Brolin pretty much confirming he's Thanos is pretty cool. What bums me out a bit is the scene in the film with Thor's hammer, where they say Cap is able to move it "a little"- everyone knows Cap is worthy enough to lift Mjolnir; & I want to see that happen on film. In the comics it was both a great moment for Cap & for Thor when he lifted Mjolnir, bonded these two heroes as warriors/kindred spirits, & I think it could be in the films too.

What should happen is a scene where Cap casually picks up the hammer and hands it to Thor, who's speechless, while Cap has no idea what he's doing.

Totally, that would be awesome! Or a scene where Thor is swamped with Ultrons, his hammer on the ground, & without thinking about it Cap instinctively picks Mjolnir up & starts smashing the Ultons, then tossing it back to an astounded Thor. Seriously, that would make the movie for me.

All i get from this is, dead Avengers: probably Hawkeye.

I hope not- surely they learned from Bendis' screw-up during Avengers Disassembled. No killing Hawkeye- that's a riot-starting event right there.

I have no connection to Ant Man at all, but the fact that it is described as a "heist movie" has me interested. A heist movie with superpowers which let you shrink? That sounds great.

Also, why isn't it 2015 yet? Age of Ultron is going to be so awesome!

Luckily, GotG is getting rave reviews everywhere, so there is that.

Is no one going to comment about Brolin walking on stage wearing the Infinity Gauntlet? I mean REALLY? That pretty much confirms the rumor he is Thanos!

They already confirmed it.

So, everyone tries to lift Thor's hammer and Captain America can *almost* do it. Thor tells everyone they have to be worthy to lift it, and Captain America's shield is broken at some point.

English 101 teaches me that we're going to get a scene during the final battle where Captain America smacks Ultron with the hammer.

So there really trying to avoid that whole domestic violence history of hank and janet huh.

Them having a daughter together doesn't necessarily rule it out. Her surname is Van Dyme after all and not Pym.

If they are to scared to comment on Stark being an alcoholic I doubt they will have the spousal abuse

The age of superhero summer movie blockbusters...is over

the time of the Kaiju blockbusters movies has come!

Pacific rim 2 (complete with comic series and cartoon show)

Godzilla 2( complete with already amazing comic series as well as a toy hunt craze with SHMA and x plus figures)

Skull island ( a potential set up for a King Kong vs Godzilla reboot)

Gamera 2015 ( which will get toho to probably release anohter japnese godzilla film in japan)

Monsters 2 ( a darker more horror take on the monster genre)

all we need is a Cloverfield 2 and Ultraman reboot and we got ourselves a new era!

I have a feeling, that "Cap lifting hammer a little" is not foreshadowing. I think at the end, when everyone (except Cap) is taken down, Cap lifts hammer and fight Ultron.

That makes it foreshadowing

I'm WAY more excited for the thought of Avengers: Age of Ultron than I am for anything coming out of the doom and gloom that is the DC Cinematic Universe. Whedon looks set to improve and strengthen what made The Avengers so good and then some. Can't wait to see this trailer myself!

@spideysense44: If your prediction is true that is a really cool idea.

Maybe they shouldn't have released that information because that could be really spoilery...

Now I have to pick up AoU from Amazon....Damnit

Yea I think it'll help Ultron seem like a real threat, and be able to show that the Avengers are vulnerable without having to actually kill off characters, but yea your right it is kinda spoilery

Was hank being abusive even explored that much in the 616? It seems like people describe it as a bigger deal than the comics actually made it. Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought Hank hit her in one issue and he eventually apologized and it was mostly let go. Is there much more to the story that happened on panel?

That's all it is. Just something that was made too much of a big deal. He wasn't even the only one who abused his wife because Mr. Fantastic did the same thing and no one remembers that. At least Hank has Ultron as an excuse.
