Joss Whedon is creating some real problems for his heroes in The Avengers 2. The writer/director recently said, yes, Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch will be in the film, but they won’t be there to help the team. “I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier,” the director said.
He also said, despite rumors to the contrary, Iron Man will be back for the 2015 sequel and that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will “throw something in that foreshadows [or] echoes” events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Lots of Joss quotes today. Read them all below. Read More »
Federico D’Alessandro has one of the coolest jobs in the world. He’s the Head Storyboard Artist/Animatics Supervisor at Marvel Studios, meaning he gets to conceptualize all your favorite Marvel Movies from the earliest point in the process. (You might also remember him from this Halloween pitch reel.)
With Iron Man 3 now in theaters, D’Alessandro has shared with /Film a very early animatic from the film. It’s of the mansion attack, where the Mandarin’s goons totally destroy Tony Stark’s Malibu home. The scene is filled not only with action, but non-verbal character development and tons of cool uses of the Iron Man armor.
D’Alessandro completed the animatic for the scene long before filming began and, below, you can check it out and read his account of creating it alongside director Shane Black. Read More »

While Dwayne Johnson‘s plans to play DC’s Lobo were dashed earlier this year, he could still find his way to another superhero movie if Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige has his way.
I think yeah, I mean his name has come up in the past. I’m a gigantic fan of his, I think he’s an incredible – I might have met him once a long time ago, but I haven’t really met him. I don’t really know him – but I think he’s an unbelievable personality and an unbelievable sort of force of nature. He’s awesome in Pain & Gain, he was great in G.I. Joe, he’s really kind of an amazing human being. His Twitter’s always cool and he promotes the hell out of everything he does. I would love him to be part of the Marvel universe somewhere, someday.
Johnson would be a fun addition to the MCU, though Feige doesn’t say exactly how the actor might fit in. Johnson has previously expressed his interest in playing Luke Cage, though as far as we know there’s no Luke Cage project in the works right now. (Well, S.H.I.E.L.D. rumors notwithstanding.) Who would you like to see him play? [Collider]
After the jump, Dominic Cooper is returning for the Captain America sequel, and Mark Ruffalo talks The Avengers 2 and Iron Man 3.
