We’ve got a couple of brief Marvel-related stories for you this morning. First up, Screen Daily reports that The Avengers 2 will be filming at Pinewood-Shepperton Studios in early 2014, and pre-production will be underway later this year. The U.K. studio has already developed a strong relationship with Marvel by playing host to Thor: The Dark World. They’re also setting up to house filming on Guardians of the Galaxy this summer.
In other Marvel news, hit the jump to check out a sneak peek of the upcoming Phase Two featurette that’s on the new Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One box set. The Avengers 2 opens May 1, 2015.
In addition to recently talking about Iron Man 3, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige also spoke about Phase Two and Phase Three of the upcoming Marvel Movies. First, he talked about how Phase Two and The Avengers 2 will be about taking these characters deeper. Speaking to SFX Magazine, Feige says “Almost whatever the heck else is happening is gravy in that franchise, because all I care about is Bruce and Tony, Tony and Steve, Widow and Bruce – and how Thor fits into it, because he’s always the outsider amongst outsiders. So I think that’s where the value lies. And going deeper amongst those characters in those relationships.” So it looks like when we finally come back around to The Avengers in 2015, we’ll be seeing the same team but with a different mood based on what happened to the characters earlier in Phase Two.
However, we might be seeing some new members on the team as well. Hit the jump for more including what we might see from Doctor Strange.
While DC and Warner Bros. are still trying to figure out what to do with their superheroes, Marvel already has the path laid out for “Phase Two”: Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Granted, all of the films except Guardians are sequels, but Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige says we shouldn’t be expecting more of the same. Fans should anticipate new approaches, different sides of the characters, and trying to build it all to The Avengers 2.

Although Thor has been out since the summer of 2011 and all of the Blu-ray extras were thought to be exhausted, there appears to be a new never-before-seen deleted scene from the end of the film. Included on the Marvel Cinematic Universe box set, the scene features Dr. Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard) running his research team while Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and Darcy (Kat Dennings) send a skyward beacon to help Thor (Chris Hemsworth) find his way back to Earth.
The new “Phase One” box set will be available for pre-order later today, and will hit shelves on April 2, 2013. Marvel will also be adding features like new deleted scenes, and more importantly, a sneak peek at the upcoming “Phase Two” films, Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, and The Avengers 2.
