With Marvel‘s cinematic universe officially in Phase 2 we have a full slate of movies from the house of ideas to look forward to and apparently, Entertainment Weekly is all up in it, pictures wise. Coming up we’ve got some teasey/spoilery images from the magazine’s Comic-Con preview for you to drool and speculate over.
Let’s start with some concept art of Captain America and his BFF, Bucky.
See, that’s a spoiler (to people who don’t know commonly known things). Steve “Captain America” Rogers and his former sidekick, James “Bucky” Barnes turn from friends to enemies and, with any luck frienemies by the end, in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The above concept art by Ryan Meinerding (same guy that did the Iron Man 3 reveal last Comic Con) teases what we can assume is one of many clashes between the two. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is due in theaters April 4, 2014.
Remember Peggy Carter from the first Captain America movie? Well get ready for more. Hayley Atwell returns for the next Marvel short film, packaged with the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray that drops in September. Picking up shortly after Cap is flash frozen and assumed lost, the flick will feature the femme fatale carving out her own space in the male dominated world of 1940 s super-spies. Three more pictures and a synopsis by Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito follow.
It’s a year since Cap plunged into the ocean. And in our mind, we said there’s a few SSR offices. If you want to relate it to now, it’s like the OSS, the precursor to the CIA. The SSR is the precursor to S.H.I.E.L.D. There’s some satellite offices in New York and right now their primary concern is getting Zodiac … Zodiac in the books has been many many different things. We just want you to know it’s deadly, it’s important, bad guys are guarding it, and it’s imperative she gets it.
Lastly, a quick little round up of some concept work for promotional material for our next trip to Asgard in Thor: The Dark World. Yes, Kevin Feige more or less has confirmed that the sequel will take place
in the realm on the planet of the Norse gods aliens. “We see the street-level view, the nooks and crannies of house people actually live there real people and not just golden superbeings.”
