Marvel Movie News: 'Thor,' 'Avengers,' 'Guardians'...

marvel cinematic universe movie news, Thor 3, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers Age of Ultron

Hey gang, the Huffington Post spent a few minutes talking about future plans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) with the man himself, Kevin Feige.  He's the president of Marvel Studios, and he's usually been the focal point for many movie news and updates regarding the world of Marvel movies.  Or at worse, he keeps people codified about their raging curiosities!

In this chat, they ask him upright if there will be a third Thor movie, touch on Thanos hovering in the background of The Avengers, touch on James Spader's participation as Ultron in Avengers 2, and a little bit about Guardians of the Galaxy movies.  With that said,


On a third Thor movie:  It seems early to be thinking of it, but as if this needed explaining, Feige replied saying that it depends on the box office.  Or to quote, "That's up to the audience."

On Bradley Cooper as Rocket Racoon in Guardians of the Galaxy, where it will be more of a voice role.

Versus James Spader playing Ultron, where his work will be voice plus face and body work, because in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ultron will be much more than just a robot that is a thorn in The Avengers side.

To quote Feige, "We did not hire James Spader to do a robot voice."

I like that quote and I like Spader's work through the years, so I am looking forward to how the robot will more than likely, in my opinion, be more of a humanoid than a robot.

On the threat of Thanos to The Avengers, Feige said he's more of a continuing story line that they will be teasing out in the MCU.

On Guardians of the Galaxy, Feige affirmed that the movie will start out weird and develop into an engaging story as the movie pushes the story along.

For me, I never heard of this franchise title until it was announced as a movie.  It has no pull for me yet.  But the Nova Corps is in it, and Nova was one of my favorite characters.  And don't forget the rumors, that {possible spoiler, so see last line in this post} will have an appearance in the film.

Me, I'm waiting to see what the trailers have to offer and let that be the deciding factor on whether or not I see it in theaters.

But that's me.

Heck, to be honest, when I first saw Thor in the theaters, I went to support the Marvel movie world.  It did little for me, but I didn't hate it.  But then Joss Whedon's masterful work on The Avengers added some depth to everything in the universe, and I've watched Thor one or twenty times now, and love the story that the movie delivers.  (Sure, I'm a little slow on some things.)

Eh, we'll see how the marketing goes.
