Joss Whedon is currently hard at work on Avengers: Age of Ultron, the superteam super-sequel that promises to turn 2015 into the most superpowered summer since 2014. But one does not merely walk into Age of Ultron. In an interview with Collider, Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige confirms that Joss Whedon directed one of the post-credits sequences for next month’s Captain America sequel The Winter Soldier. It would appear that — like the Thor sequel and Avengers — the film has two post-credits scenes, a development which promises to leave our Post-Credits Pantheon in tatters. READ FULL STORY

Chris Hemsworth was still filming The Avengers when made an audition tape for the role of British Formula One driver James Hunt in Rush. The tape impressed Rush director Ron Howard and the film’s writer-producer Peter Morgan, but the pair had one major concern. As Hemsworth was still filming The Avengers he had the musclebound physique of Thor rather than that of the lithe Hunt. “He had the right look, assuming he could lose the weight,” says Howard. “Chris said, ‘Thor can’t even get in an F1 car — but I will be able to.’”
Get ready for Marvel’s Phase One, take two.
The comic book studio’s 10-disc, 6-movie box set of films, spanning from 2008’s Iron Man to last May’s The Avengers, was put on hold in September due to a lawsuit over its suitcase packaging but now the collectors package (featuring a different case, but the same glowing Tesseract cube) is heading back into stores.
The Blu-ray set will go back on pre-sale later today, for release on April 2, and EW has learned the exclusive details about some of its new components.
Marvel used the downtime to add a showcase of the studio’s upcoming Phase Two slate of movies to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe: Phase One.
And the set will also include deleted scenes from each of the past films, such as this variation on the ending to Thor, with a rooftop Natalie Portman sending out the most long-distance “I miss you” message in history.
Last September, with The Avengers already underway, Marvel Studios revealed it was developing plans to bring together a new team.
“There is an opportunity to do a big space epic, which Thor sort of hints at in the cosmic side of the universe, with characters in a property called Guardians of the Galaxy,” Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige told EW last year.
They’d already been laboring to create “The Big Idea,” which was company slang for the long slate of connected movies culminating in this May’s The Avengers.
With Guardians, they’re looking beyond Earth for their heroes. READ FULL STORY
