This story and podcast was published on May 17th 2012, just after the release of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers. I thought it would be fun to take a look back at our predictions from 27 months ago to see how things are panning out for phase two and three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some of the predictions seem obvious in hindsight, like Germain predicting that Thanos wouldn’t be the villain of Avengers 2 and Jeff foreseeing that Thanos’ appearance during the Avengers end credits stinger was probably a set-up for another film, Guardians of the Galaxy. But one must remember this was recorded before a Guardians of the Galaxy movie was even announced, which happened months later at 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. Enjoy!
