Top 5: IRON MAN 3 Extremis Soldiers, MCU Phase Two & More

The top 5 news stories of the week. Marvel dominated the newswire this week with a salivating look at Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, our first glimpse of the Extremis afflicted and chatter about Doctor Strange.

Top 5 Stories For The Week Ending 04/05/2013

Good luck trying to track down the video preview for Phase Two but you can still see some concept art and screenshots for Ant-Man, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: The Dark World. That's an interesting design for Bucky but keep in mind, this is just concept art and only represents a 'possibility' of what the finished product will look like.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD GIFs Reveal BTS First Footage
Also leaking out this weeks was our first definitive look at Thor: The Dark World which reveals or confirms an interesting development for Natalie Portman's Jane Foster. Out of all the Phase Two films, I might be (slightly) anticipating this film more than the others.

First Look At Iron Man 3 Extremis Soldiers
A new tv spot for Iron Man 3 revealed our first look at the Extremis soldiers in action. Sure, the Mandarin may have lost his Asian background but the Extremis soldiers are definitely giving off a terracotta army vibe.

ANGEL's J. August Richards Lands Secret Role In ABC's S.H.I.E.L.D. Pilot
On the tv front, it appears that an earlier rumor about J. August Richards joining ABC's S.H.I.E.L.D. is true according to TVline. Is he a young Nick Fury? Television version of Gabe Jones? Or something else entirely? Lots of wacky and fun theories out there at the moment. I wonder if Joss and co. will make us wait till the fall to find out.

Doctor Strange is heavily rumored to be part of Marvel's Phase III films. But there's persistent chatter the Master of the Mystic Arts will first show up in one of the Phase Two films. Feige is also excited about Guardians of the Galaxy and why not? Our first look at concept art definitely revealed a Star Wars vibe.

I get covering up Bucky's face if it's scarred, but they should really avoid the "New Goblin" look.

who determines what the top 5 is?
capcyclopsftw - 4/6/2013, 7:47 AM
Because if you really think that a character from Angel is bigger news than the Cap 2 concept art, you should re-check you priorities.

I know it's not based off number of comments?

@Tainted87 and DioFoRio

Don't be stupid, that's snow gear.

New Goblin or Winter Soldier???. ...
ALmazing - 4/6/2013, 1:23 PM
New Gobblin doesn't look liek Winter Soldier, Spiderman 3 never happened (Jedi hand wave)
TheSoulEater - 4/6/2013, 1:37 PM
Spiderman 3 didn't happen.....
Tainted87 - 4/6/2013, 2:17 PM
DanteSparda - oh right. My bad. That changes everything.
DanteSparda - 4/6/2013, 2:30 PM

And even if Spider-man 3 ever happened Im sure they will make the New Goblin look even more stupid than the former, like someone with snowboarding gear, even if he isn't in the snow.

In the other hand that would make a lot of sense for Winter Soldier.
Tainted87 - 4/6/2013, 2:38 PM
Eh, he'll probably end up with something else. It's early art.
ahhmynuts - 4/6/2013, 11:46 PM
idk if it'll be much different since they started filming(i think)
Danbojohnj - 4/7/2013, 1:37 AM
Spiderman 1,2+3 never happened,I barely acknowledge the new one either.
KaineBParker - 4/8/2013, 7:04 AM
IDK what the big deal was with the 3rd spiderman; it had great action scenes. And i know wtf was with the jazz club dance scene; but i look past all that for the things that were done well. JF's New Goblin was fierce; i liked him using a sword. Venom was lame; but Sandman was awesome; so i enjoyed SM3 as well as 1 & 2 alot more than the TASM.
