THE AVENGERS 2 to Film in the UK in Early 2014 plus a Sneak Peek at the Phase Two Featurette

     April 2, 2013


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.

After being delayed due to copyright oversight regarding the design of the briefcase, the massive Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One box set has been released.  If you don’t own an of the Phase One movies (Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, The Avengers), this isn’t a bad way to buy them.  It’s a stacked box set, and it also includes an “exclusive look at Iron Man 3 and Phase Two”.  While I’m sure someone is rushing to upload that featurette as soon as possible, you can check out a sneak peek at that featurette below.  You can also click here to go buy the box set.

In addition, we just posted possible concept art from Captain America: The Winter Soldier and director James Gunn’s absolutely massive-looking Guardians of the Galaxy Click here to check it out.

    Should there be a y after an in this sentence? “If you don’t own an of the Phase One movies” Maybe?

    Ahhh Hollywood, where everything is outsourced. I read somewhere that 71% of studio films are now made outside of California, with the percentage growing each year of films shot internationally. Speaking as someone in the industry, this is not good for L.A. or myself.

    Why is it taking so long to show anything of Thor The Dark World? We don’t even have a official still yet.

    • Jamesy

      As far as I know they are back doing re-shoots for a considerable portion of the movie.

        A buddy of mine i went to school with is a senior editor on the Marvel Films from him he says that Thor 2 have already done their reshoots and all they had to redo were shots in which make up just didnt look good. Further more Thor 2 doesn’t come out till November. on may 3rd that will mark 6 months which is normally when we get our first TRAILER. Marvel doesnt really do TEASERS anymore which normally come out a year before the movie. But there is going to be a THOR full length Trailer attatched to the front of Iron Man 3.

      They released “Behind the Scenes” stills, but stills from the film itself, I don’t know.

    I saw an April Fools’ Day prank pulled by Unleash the Fanboy this morning saying Robert Downey, Jr. had given up on Iron Man and had abandoned The Avengers 2. I was so mad. I can’t wait for Phase Two!

      A website I go on had an even greater April Fools, tile of the article was “Disney Officially Announces Black Panther Film for Phase 3″. You click on the article and a giant troll face appears. Well, it got me good lmao.
