Watch: Marvel's Full Phase Two Preview for Thor, Ant-Man, Guardians
Calm down, calm down. This is just the featurette from the Marvel Phase One box set released this week, but it contains additional footage from all of their upcoming movies, as well as more of the concept art we also posted this week. The video, running just under 5 minutes, features early looks at Marvel's Phase Two movies including Ant-Man, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. Since production is either just starting or currently happening, there's not much finished footage yet, but this is a very exciting video for Marvel fans to fire up and enjoy.
Update! The full 5-minute preview has been blocked by Marvel, but they've put up a short teaser in the meantime. Instead, we've added some of the new concept art in the video below. From Captain America 2:
Here's some additional concept art pieces from Guardians of the Galaxy as well, from the original video:
"Mr. Stark, you've become part of a bigger universe, you just don't know it yet." Now he does! Or we'll see him learn that lesson soon. Everything we've seen so far from Marvel's Phase Two seems like it's headed in the right direction - bigger, better, crazier in every way. I love the little glimpses we've had, I can't wait to see Iron Man 3, and I've got a good feeling about the new Thor and Captain America sequels already. Even Edgar Wright's Ant-Man test footage looked great, and I'm particularly pleased with how epic and awesome the Guardians of the Galaxy concept art is as well. Bring on the next phase, Kevin Feige, we're ready for it!

These guys are so good at getting people hyped. Just after waiting 4 years for the release of the avengers and straight after it you're automatically pumped for 2015. Really makes you wish you had a time machine!

Quick question. Based on the above video, it is my understanding that Ant-Man is going to be a 2015 movie, released before The Avengers 2? Because so far I was under the impression that it hadn't been given the go ahead to be a part of Phase 2 and that they were considering that project as a "maybe" for Phase 3. If it does indeed go ahead, then my vote is to Nathan Fillion for Hank Pym/Ant-Man. And I really consider Marvel brave for shaking up the recipe with Guardians of The Galaxy - really looking forward to that! James Gunn's Slither is this generation's answer to Evil Dead. Also, Marvel is actually looking like they have things well thought out and planned. Which is surprising when compared to the problems DC seem to be facing on the film side of things. Although I just read that the man who has been kind of leading WB Animation since the early 90s and who is directly responsibile for the AMAZING WB/DC Animated stuff - Bruce Timm - he has apparently moved away from the animated stuff to work on something else for WB and I would think it a match made in heaven to have the creator of the animated Justice League/Justice Leage:Unlimited take up the mantle of director of the live action Justice League (though I sincerely doubt he'd get director, but writer? there's a chance). Timm knows DC comics and would be MUCH better at being DC's answer to Whedon than Nolan would ever be. Hell, best DC non-comic book stuff is basically the animated shows. Batman: The Animated Series from the early 90s makes Nolan's Batman look like something the cat barfed. Not to mention that Batman Beyond was damn good idea for having Bruce Wayne retire and a younger man taking up the mantle of Batman. And nothing beats Kevin Conroy doing Batman/Bruce Wayne. The much applauded games Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are DIRECTLY influenced by Batman: TAS, even having Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill voicing Batman and The Joker respectively like they did on that show.

Nathan Fillion would be an excellent choice for Ant Man. Maybe then there would be enough 'Juice' for Whedon to start Firefly up again or do a Serenity sequel. Marvel does seem to have things well planned out. I think the main difference between Disney/Marvel and Warner/DC is that Disney is letting Marvel do their thing while Warner has a bunch of non-comic chefs in the kitchen trying to tell the real chefs how to cook. Fox has done the same thing with the X-Men and Sony with the Fantastic Four. Same thing with Spider Man. All the Marvel characters are better characters in the context of the comic book universe in which they have always resided. If these lamebrain bean counting idiot executives ever got together and played golf, they could forge crossover deals and allow Spider Man, The Fantastic Four and X-Men to exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as they properly should. Both companies would make money, probably more money than they would make by having a Marvel character in a vacuum. But what do I know...I'm just the consumer that buys the ticket. I still haven't seen the new Spider Man. I might not see the Fantastic Four. I might skip X-men and Wolverine, simply because, in reality, it's not Marvel...it's Fox and conservatives don't know what they are doing. Fox is buried with conservative executives who are just like the architect from the The Matrix Trilogy. They can't past any decision.
