Marvel Exec Kevin Feige details ‘Avengers 2’ saying it’ll be ‘worth the price of admission’

Writer and director Joss Whedon is currently working hard to get the “Avengers” TV spinoff “S.H.I.E.L.D.” through production, Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige gives fans an update and reassurance that “Avengers 2” will be worth the price of admission.

After talking with MTV News, the Jan. 24 report starts with Feige’s update on the script.

Iron Man battling aliens Avengers photo“It’s still early days,” he said, “but I told [Whedon] after reading the first sketch outline he delivered — and there’s a lot of work still to do, he has to sit down and turn this into a movie — but there are already seven things in there that are worth the price of admission alone.”

No details on the seven things, but says it all begins with May’s “Iron Man 3.”

“I would say that the exercise of this film is very much standalone, more so than any ‘Iron Man’ film since the first one. But because we are in Phase Two and we’re heading towards another ‘Avengers’ movie, there’s certainly a road that’s being paved — you just might not notice it,” he said regarding how much “Avengers” teasing we’ll see in the third “Iron Man” film.

“While you’re driving on the road, not knowing where it’s going, you might not realize that there are road signs and signals and lane changes that we’re setting up now — they might not be readily apparent the first time you see the movie.”

“IM3” appears to be more about Tony Stark and not Thanos or direct ties to the fallout from “Avengers.”

“In this one, it has less to do with any sort of larger S.H.I.E.L.D. or cosmic overlay, but much more about Tony, his frame of mind, his viewpoint and the things he wants to pursue.”

“Avengers 2” will arrive in theaters May 1, 2015.

    June 2015 may be the end of his exclusive agreement with Marvel meaning The Avengers 2 is releasing that month, or, like several of the Iron Man films and also the first Avengers, will be starting off the summer blockbuster season in May 2015.

  2. Syahirah says:

    By far, DC is just Superman, Green Lantern, Hawkman, and Batman. Marvel has the X-men, The Fantastic Four, Avengers and Im sure Thor can beat Superman; Silver Surfer destroys the Green Lantern; Iron man does it with Hawkman, and Batman is no match for Captain America, so DC is just no match for Marvel..
