Phase 2 and 3

What I think will go down story wise for Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers 2 and I finalize my story down for what I want adapted for Avengers 3.

Follow Nick:
By Nick Salinski - 10/2/2012
Marvel Phase 1 was epic and Phase 2 will be even more epic. Phase 2 will focus on the more cosmic side of the Marvel Universe, namely Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers 2 or as I would like to call it (if I had the choice) The Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet. Here is what I think it will be story wise for Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers 2 and what I want story wise to be for Avengers 3.

Guardians of the Galaxy



I think that Guardians of the Galaxy should adapt certain things from, Thanos Imperative. But, mostly should obviously have the origin of the team. The most crucial members are Star Lord, Drax the Destroyer and Gamora. The story should focus on them the most. Star Lord is the leader of the group but Drax the Destroyer and Gamora are in a sense more important because they each have a past with Thanos, The Mad Titan. I feel it should be a stand alone film, it just feels like it would make the most sense.

The Avengers 2



The Avengers 2, as hinted above, should have the storyline basis of The Infinity Gauntlet. It would be an epic way to end Phase 2 and again, it makes the most sense. The Avengers team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to face Thanos.I know the GotG wasn't in the Infinity Gauntlet storyline but that's why it's the basis of the movie. Whether you like Thanos or not (I do) the storyline was epic and the translation would be even better.

Avengers 3



I feel the cinematic universe should continue on, but not for The Avengers. I feel the perfect, epic ending that The Avengers deserve is the Marvel Civil War. If Avengers two is a big enough success and well recieved by the auidence, also if the marketing for a Civil War movie (final Avengers film) is good, Avengers 3 could be the biggest superhero movie since, well.. The Avengers. Sure they'll have to change certain things for it to work if they don't have the rights to certain characters. But, I feel it could work very well.

I'm hoping they go for Ultron for Avengers 3 rather than CW - with the same technique they've used for reveiling Thanos; mid-credits of Av2, Stark & Hank Pym finishing building something (shown by lines of code & the metal arm things that put the IM suit together moving about for example), pan away to show Ultron's face...then smash to black. Boom: nerdgasm.

Obviously he's not as cosmically epic a threat as Thanos, but still extremely deadly and the film could be very dark if it wanted to be (Ultron's appearances in the comics pretty much always meant someone would kick it). It would also avoid the standard 'everything needs to be BIGGER!' problem that many 3rd entries to a series suffer from.

Its way too soon for infinity gauntlet and just having the Avengers defeat Thanos while using the gauntlet would be the biggest watered down piece of shit ever made. Even with the help of the GotG. Anyone who has really read Infinity Gauntlet can tell you that.

Thanos could make people cease to exist with a thought using the IG. It would take a whole lot more than The Avengers and GotG.

Anyway, they have said Avengers2 will be smaller in scope and more personal. What would be more personal than Pym creating Ultron in the Antman movie, Ultron turning evil, then being the villain in Avengers 2?

They need to save IG for later. Thanos can make his appearances during phase 2 and be shown to be collecting the gems. Then Phase 3 can be IG. But as it is, there just arent enough characters, especially cosmic characters, that have been introduced to do an IG story any justice at all.

I bet my ass that Avengers 2 will not be cosmic at all. I think they'll bring Thanos to Earth. You'll never have Captain America in space fighting Thanos, it just won't work

Where does everyoone get the idea that Avengers will be a trilogy? Unless one of the films bombs, there's no reason for Disney to stop milking this cash cow.

And no, quality has nothing to do with it. We're not talking about "should" here, we're talking about "would". And would Disney milk this to death. Yes, yes they would.

this would be my choice for the excutioner.

dellamorte1872 - 10/3/2012, 7:25 AM
how is THANOS supposed to "smaller"? id wait until 3 for the mad titan. 2 def should be ANT-MAN + ULTRON whats more smaller and more personal than a strictly earth-bound threat? AVENGERS + GOTG teaming up to take down THANOS does not sound smaller and more personal at all!
EdgyOutsider - 10/3/2012, 7:48 AM
@CornDogBurglar & dellamorete1872: I had completely forgotten he said smaller and more personal. I still say the only good thing coming out of Ant-Man is Ultron. Other than that, Ant-Man will be a crap movie because he is a crap hero. But seeing how you guys reminded me of it being "smaller and more personal" Now, I am thinking of Ultron for 2, Thanos for 3 and then for a 4th have it be Civil War. It is the only way I feel comfortable going beyond a trilogy. I know the Civil War idea has been over done, but I don't see a better, more fit, epic conclusion than that storyline.

@ batz11

i commented on your choice in a another article but i say it again here,good call on casting them two i didn't think of that pairing,definetly emilia but jason did slip my mind.

there is plenty of actors from game of thrones that would fit perfectly in any of the other nine world's.

You guys do realize that the X-Men literally had NOTHING to do with Civil War, right?

But you're right about Spidey and F4.

However, Daredevil could easily fill the Spidey role, and in all honesty, the only thing the F4 had to do with Civil War was Reed creating 42, the prison in the Negative Zone. Torch was in a coma the whole time, Thing went to Europe while it all calmed down, and Sue went off with Namor. The F4 really weren't THAT important to Civil War. Reed created the 42 prison with the help of Stark and Antman. THey could easily just take Reed out of that equation and literally nothing of the F4 would be missed in a Civil War story.
CorndogBurglar - 10/3/2012, 9:43 AM
Norman Osbourne literally did not even appear in the entire story. I wonder how many people actually read it...
CorndogBurglar - 10/3/2012, 9:47 AM
With the X-Men, Stark granted mutants immunity to registering as long as they did not join Cap's side. So really, is that important to put in a movie? no.

Again, Daredevil could play the role of giving up his identity, then trading sides to go with Cap.

F4 were so unimportant to the overall Civil War story that you could leave them out entirely.

Tonly thing they would need to do is introduce more characters so each side would have enough people to go to war

Part of me really wants Civil War and part of me really doesn't.
EdgyOutsider - 10/3/2012, 9:58 AM
CorndogBurglar: The whole idea of DareDevil of being in the position Spidey was actually something I had given a little bit of thought about that could make sense. As you said, F4 and X-Men weren't important enough that they would be needed in a Civil War adaptation. It might be better as a faithful adaptation, but just replace Spider-Man with DareDevil (they'll have the rights back anyways, although they might need to introduce him either in a solo film before hand, or just give him a movie that doesn't co-exsist within the universe and just have him be explained a little bit in the movie that would be enough to make sense), take out F4 and X-Men, introduce more characters and you're good to go.
Niuhll - 10/3/2012, 10:01 AM
I mean, there is so many great villains to use, why have them fight each other? At least, why spend a whole movie doing it? The reason it was such a great comic was because they carry on, it lasts a few months and the stories go on and new things happen, once a month like clock work.

Why rush Civil War when you have Ultron, Kang, the Kree, Masters of Evil etc etc. Far too many, and many will most likely won't see anyway.

Lets use these. If we have Civil War, it won't be by the book, for obvious reasons anyway.
EdgyOutsider - 10/3/2012, 10:11 AM
Niuhll: I would prefer for Avengers to be a trilogy but I can see Avengers 4 being Civil War. My thinking was have the two big heavy hitters for the second and third movies (Ultron for 2, Thanos for 3) and having Civil War doesn't have to be panal by panal. As stated in previous comments, replace Spidey with DareDevil, don't put in F4 and X-Men. Just introduce some more characters to enough to have a war. It would be completely new for superhero movies at the cinema, unique and it would be an epic way to cap it all off.
Wallymelon - 10/3/2012, 10:19 AM
honestly i feel like disney/marvel is going to make more than three avengers films. as long as people want avengers they will continue to produce more films. a civil war movie would be pointless because it would be a ending point to franchises. you want to keep franchises going for as long as possible. and since multiple studios own characters to make that possible i really dont see that happeneing. so lets give up on the civil war movie, it's an amazing graphic novel lets leave it at that.

marvel is doing what they did in phase 1 just with direction this time. phase 1 was awesome but it should have been more fluid in term of the continuity. they had no idea what they were doing because they were trying something new. but now they have joss whedon master of nerd tv to help out. he can actually show them what its like to have something last for 8 years and still work in the same continuity and have a spinoff. (good job marvel) so phase 2 is going to be this fluid build up of awesomeness, and i think its not going to explode until phase 3, leading into phase 4.

i think phase three will probably not consist of as many sequels as phase 2, its going to be cap 3 and thor 3 and maybe a gotg2 but i doubt gotg is going to do that well. its too random. very hard to for me to see RDJ talking to a racoon and tree and be serious at the same time. hopefully theyll have more origin stories in phase 3. launch off a black panther film and a doctor strange film.
EdgyOutsider - 10/3/2012, 10:26 AM
Wallymelon: That's the point with Civil War though. It's the end of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the end of their franchise. Give us a break from the main series for a decade or so, introduce us to characters never seen on the big screen and give us their sequels. Then, have hollywood do what they do best and reboot Avengers.

I would really like to see GOTG be more like the infinity crusade. For me it was Thanos's best showing in the books. Once Thanos gets the gems he loses some appeal, because he is to OP. He's so OP'ed that the heroes never really beat him,, he just beats himself. Watching him gather the gems, taking down badass after badass with his brains and brawn, is imo his shining moment. Truthfully I want the GOTG to have a good showing but to lose big time. The movie ending with a badly injured GOTG member heading to earth for a warning.

I'm not in a rush to see him in Avenger2 either. I want avengers2 to have another villian/s like ultron or MoE. I kinda want it to be a problem that they directly or indirectly created. Then the after credits scene could be said GOTG member giving them the warning.

AlexanderLykins - 10/3/2012, 11:15 AM
Everyone knows that Thanos will be in the next two Avengers films along with a cameo or two in the next few MCU movies. They are not going to go Civil War because there are too many heroes to be added to do so. How will they develop all of the characters? Just answer me this? Why would they cameo Thanos to not put him in the next Avengers film? They haven't even hinted at Ultron! It's tough coming on here and seeing all this wishful thinking every single week. I don't understand how you could go Thanos and then Ultron? Ultron is nothing compared to Thanos!
fortycals - 10/3/2012, 12:03 PM
@ducks
Wishful thinking is all we have as fans.
They alluded to avengers for five movies before the avengers movie. Just because they put something into the after credits, doesnt mean it's going to happen right away. I just think you should use Thanos to end a trilogy not in the middle. An after credits scene or behind the scene master mind maybe, but full on thanos with the IG in the second movie leaves nothing for the third.
RedNTheHood - 10/3/2012, 12:57 PM
I think Ultron should be the villain for Avengers 3 and they shouldn't have any movies for any of the Avengers in the first film between them. They should have films for people who should be in Avengers 3 that take place during the time of Avengers 2, but come out in between the 2 movies. I think after avengers 3 they should move on to other people.
AlexanderLykins - 10/3/2012, 1:22 PM
@fortycals
Maybe the second Avengers film could be about the race to get the Infinity Gems? Or about stopping Thanos from getting them? Maybe he destroys Earth in the next Avenger film? Maybe the Avengers and The Guardians of the Galaxy flee Earth to escape from Thanos? I think whatever we get will be pretty good and if Joss, Disney, and Marvel with all of that money take good care of the source material we will all be pleased!
avengers72 - 10/3/2012, 2:01 PM
x-men needs a reboot too
marvel72 - 10/3/2012, 3:02 PM
the avengers loki & chitauri
the avengers 2 kang & ultron
the avengers 3 the masters of evil

thanos is too big a villain to be in just the avengers 2,if he's got the infinity gauntlet marvel needs to introduce more heroes & maybe even an infinity gauntlet trilogy.
EdgyOutsider - 10/3/2012, 9:44 PM
brazilianbatman: I said in 10 years or so. I didn't particularly say 10 years.

Agreed
dezdigi - 10/5/2012, 10:20 AM
I feel like Phase 2 might have a story arc that develops through all the sequels leading to Avengers 2, but it's not Thanos.
IM3-Tech thriller, possibly including nano tech or alien tech
Thor2-big battle film, possibly including magical themes, possible Dr Strange cameo
Cap3-Winter Soldier and possible espionage themes, perhaps AIM building a weapon with nano tech, alien tech

So,I'm wondering how these three tie together, connect to GotG and lead up to the Avengers sequel.
Kevinwillpeabodyproperties - 10/6/2012, 6:58 PM
Guys come on seriously.

They did not tease thanos in avengers to put him I'm 3. It's not happening. Thanos will absolutely be the villain in avengers 2.

Planet hulk would be [frick]in out of control I would literally die
