The wait is almost over for Shane Black’s Iron Man 3, which debuts in the States on Friday, May 3rd.  However, if you’re looking ahead to the rest of Marvel’s Phase Two slate of films, we’ve got a few nibbles of information to pique your interest.  Since there’s currently no Iron Man 4 on Marvel’s lineup, it’s looking like Robert Downey Jr.’s next appearance as the armored Avenger will be in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers 2.  But who else will be joining him?

Hit the jump for more on Iron Man 3 from Downey Jr., Black, Gwyneth Paltrow and Marvel’s Kevin Feige, along with updates on The Avengers 2 and Captain America: The Winter SoldierSpoilers ahead.

First, check out the full image from Entertainment Weekly’s new cover, featuring Paltrow and Downey Jr.  Their full write-up on Marvel’s Phase Two will be coming soon, but for now we have a few teasers to share with you:

As for more Phase Two news, let’s start with Iron Man 3 itself.  Apparently Black plays rough with Marvel’s darling and there may be a few scenes that look to shake up the fanbase.  After filming a particularly controversial scene, Downey Jr. asked Feige:

“What does this mean if we wind up doing an Avengers 2? Kevin looked at me and said, ‘That’s Joss’ problem to solve.’ I was like, ‘Good man.’”

Once Iron Man 3 bows, we won’t see Downey Jr. on screen as Stark (probably) until two years to the day!  What the hell happens to him in this movie?  As Black puts it:

“I thought we needed to do something in the third movie to make it feel like a game-changer.”

And as you can probably tell from the above image, even Pepper Potts (Paltrow) gets into the armored action this time around:

“It’s sort of the comic-book version of a Cinderella story,” Paltrow says of her character’s four-film arc. “She starts timid and sort of cleaning up after Tony, and then she evolves into full strength and a superhero.”

captain-america-2-winter-soldier-concept-artMoving forward to Captain America: The Winter Soldier (and some new concept art, which you can see to the right), Feige talked about how Cap is not only a man out of his own time, but is now faced with S.H.I.E.L.D.’s questionable tactics and how they don’t fit into an easy moral code:

“We weren’t going back to World War II. Cap cannot travel in time. So while Tony can go home to Malibu and Thor goes up to Asgard and Hulk can sort of ride the rails, Cap was stuck. So Cap does stay with S.H.I.E.L.D. because he has nowhere else to go. But he’s not necessarily comfortable there. And just as he’s given permission to let go of the past and to focus on the modern world, a ghost comes up. With the Greatest Generation in World World II, there’s a tendency to reflect on that period and say, ‘Things were black and white back then, and now it’s hard to know who the bad guys are.’ ‘We wanted to play on that a little wit Cap being uncomfortable with the way S.H.I.E.L.D., and in particular Nick Fury, operates.”

Now, looking ahead to The Avengers 2.  Whedon recently mentioned the possibility of twin superheroes Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver appearing in the sequel.  EW has more to say on that account:

Some online rumors turn out to be true, however. A source confirms to EW that the twin characters Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be joining The Avengers 2, which Whedon hinted at recently when he said he was writing a brother-sister duo into the movie. Feige maintains a poker face on that scoop, saying only: “I’m not confirming or denying. The draft could change six months from now.”

It’s so satisfying to know that we’ve got two full years of properly-handled superhero films ahead of us.  Even if things do change between now and then, it’s reassuring to have a plan of attack in place.  Excelsior!

    I have absolutely no interest in Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver being in Avengers 2. I don’t see any purpose of introducing Magneto’s children if they’re not going to introduce Magneto himself. Another problem I find is that both of those characters are really uninteresting and I don’t even like them in the x-men universe.

    • hamroll

      well if i remeber correctly both fox and marvel can use them so if they show up and omit the magneto part they could show up in xmen and explain it there a way to bridge the universes as best they can

    • Ryan D

      And so it begins…honestly Marvel should have just waited until they have complete creative control on characters and their backgrounds. I assume that is why Black Panther has been going back and forth in their creative teams because of the whole Storm connection.

    • Diggy

      Cool story bro!

  • Max

    Why not the Vision or Ultron or any number of Avengers as opposed to Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. They’re more of a ‘down the road’ duo, when Fox decides to make real money by doing joint studio films. Sony, I’m also looking in your direction.

    • Anonymous

      Oh, I’m sure we’ll get Vision and Ultron. We just have to wait until after Ant Man.

      • Max

        Of course! Ant-Man creates Ultron who creats The Vision!
        Funny, that hadn’t even occurred to me.

    Dear mother of god that is one serious Photoshop hackjob done to Gwyneth Paltrow’s neck.

    • Robby

      The one on RDJ isnt much better to be honest…

    • Jeff Bonivert

      I agree!

    I think the avengers 3 would see the X-Men teaming up with them to stop the Thanos onslaught. Its Whedon’s trump card and a fitting conclusion to the trilogy. Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch will be the bride in the 2nd movie.. i wont even be surprised that the easter egg for the 2nd movie would mention Magneto. So fan boy speculation would be on fever pitch for the crossover. I’m sure Fox and Marvel would find a way to make this happen.
