Kevin Feige Teases THE AVENGERS 2 And THOR: THE DARK WORLD (New Image)
Keeping mum on Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, Kevin Feige has promised the new heroes in The Avengers 2 will play major part. The Marvel president also dishes on the anticipated Thor sequel!
Although sources of Entertainment Weekly recently confirmed that the mutant twins Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are currently featured in Joss Whedon's script for The Avengers sequel, Kevin Feige wouldn't confirm nor deny. However, for EW's latest issue, the Marvel Studios president of production did promise the new recruits for Earth's mightiest heroes will certainly be pivotal to the story. “All of the Avengers from the first film will be back and they will be the core team, but what's fun is that the roster shifts. It was always the intention to have a story line that brought in, obviously, new bad guys and potentially new heroes. I'm not confirming nor denying [Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver], but the draft could change six months from now. If we're going to add new characters, there's going to be a major part of the movie.”
Meanwhile, Kevin Feige also discussed Marvel's second outing this year, Thor: The Dark World. While the sequel's first trailer, which debuted late last month, showcased director Alan Taylor's new take of the God of Thunder, Feige promises, “Alan is bringing a grittier, more textured patina to the designs of the worlds, and to Asgard in particular. It's less to chase either Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings - because you're not going to catch up. But part of the fun of Thor over the other characters is he doesn't have to stay on Earth. We visit a few of the other realms in this new movie.”
Entertainment Weekly also presented a new still image from Thor: The Dark World (pictured right), featuring star Chris Hemsworth as the Mighty Avenger holding the mighty Mjolnir. Special thanks to Luvindowney, via Tumblr, for the image. What do you think?
Marvel Studios’ “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo & Anthony Hopkins as Odin, “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne and screenplay by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and is based on Marvel’s classic Super Hero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery” #83 in August, 1962. “Thor: The Dark World” is presented by Marvel Studios. The executive producers are Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Victoria Alonso, Craig Kyle and Nigel Gostelow. The film releases November 8, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios.
