At Marvel's 'All Hail The King' premiere, fans also get first 10 minutes of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'

Superhero fans were out in full force Monday night as Hollywood’s Arclight theater played host to a special premiere screening of Marvel’s latest one-shot, All Hail the King, starring Ben Kingsley, who reprised his role as Iron Man 3’s Trevor Slattery for the 13-minute short.

EW senior movies writer Anthony Breznican moderated the event, which also included a brief Q&A with Sir Ben Kingsley, screenwriter Drew Pearce, and producer Kevin Feige. The surprise of the night, however, came at the end when fans were treated to a very special screening of the first 10 minutes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Read on for a recap of the Captain America: The Winter Soldier preview and to hear what Drew Pearce, Kevin Feige, and Ben Kingsley had to say about working on All Hail the King: READ FULL STORY

'Avengers 2': Tom Hiddleston confirms Loki is out

Tom Hiddleston’s Loki had some of the best scenes in The Avengers, from bringing an entire crowd in Germany to their knees to getting whipped around like Raggedy Andy by the Hulk. And fans of the mischief-making villain should savor those moments — because Loki won’t be back for the sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. “He’s not in it,” Hiddleston confirms to EW. “Here’s the thing: I don’t think there’s anything else Loki could contribute to The Avengers, narratively. Joss gave me so many wonderful things to do in that first film that we’d only be trying to repeat ourselves, and probably less well in the second one.”

The actor, who earned a spot in EW’s New Hollywood issue (on stands now) for bringing Loki to life with such devilish charm, says there are no hard feelings — he truly believes it’s better for the series to move on without him. “When I think of all the things I loved as a child, for example, Hans Gruber wasn’t in Die Hard 2. And in Indiana Jones, by the time he moved from the Lost Ark to the Temple of Doom, there was a whole new bad guy. I think keeping it fresh and new is good for The Avengers even though it’s a shame for me. And let’s face it, there’s seven or eight of them as it is, and Joss is thinking about adding two more, so the screen’s gonna be a busy place. But I had the time of my life on that film. It was the most fun ever.”

'Thor 2': Chris Hemsworth has a viking attitude about hero's severed hand

It wasn’t quite “the chop heard ’round the world” but fans are still abuzz about the battlefield footage from Thor: The Dark World (Nov. 8) that was shown at Comic-Con International last Saturday — specifically the climactic moment when Loki’s sword appears to lop off the outstretched right hand of the staggering thunder god.

Franchise star Chris Hemsworth missed the Hall H preview panel for the best of reasons (he’s in Hong Kong busy filming Cyber with director Michael Mann), but a few days later he still sounded disbelieving of the notion that 6,600 fans in Hall H had already watched final-stage footage of key scenes that he himself has yet to see.  READ FULL STORY

Marvel Studios goes micro ('Ant-Man') and macro ('Guardians of the Galaxy') with Comic-Con revelations

The Marvel Studios presentation kicked off with a simple title card: Phase Two Begins Now.

The screaming heard in Hall H for the next hour came from Marvel dropping news bombs onto 6,000 die-hard fans in what can only be considered Comic-Con 2012’s grand finale.

The biggest reveal was official confirmation that Guardians of the Galaxy would be Marvel’s Aug. 1, 2014 film – which came with a dazzling piece of concept art.

Check out the full image, as well as new details about Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Captain America 2, and Ant-Man‘s test footage. READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: 'Thor 2,' 'Iron Man 3' land new villains. Plus: Anthony Hopkins, Bradley Cooper, Owen Wilson, Olivia Wilde

• Speaking of Thor 2, that sequel may stand in the way of Anthony Hopkins joining another sequel, RED 2. Hopkins would play a baddie in the latter film — which will star Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, and Catherine Zeta-Jones — but his involvement hinges on his ability to schedule around playing Odin in Thor 2.

• Elsewhere in the Marvel-verse, two actors have signed onto Iron Man 3, which just started filming this week. One is quite familiar: Jon Favreau will return to play Tony Stark bodyguard Happy Hogan, notable since Favreau passed the directing reins for the franchise to Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang). And actor Ashley Hamilton (Sunset Beach) is in talks to get in Stark’s way as the cyborg Firepower, alongside villains played by James Badge Dale and Ben Kingsley. [THRVariety]

Check out project news for BRADLEY COOPER, OWEN WILSON, OLIVIA WILDE, BRIE LARSON, MORRIS CHESTNUT, ERIC STONESTREET, and KEVIN HART below:  READ FULL STORY
