Joss Whedon Confirms Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, Talks Iron Man Returning

2810028-josswhedon_avengers

A few weeks ago, rumors were swirling within that within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch would be joining the gang in the upcoming Marvel’s The Avengers sequel. Now, officially, writer/director Joss Whedon has confirmed that the characters will indeed appear. In a recently interview with IGN, he talked about the characters inclusion in the film and their involvement in the story.

Whedon stated,

“You know, they had a rough beginning. They’re interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they’re not there to make things easier. I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier.”

SuperHeroHype.com also exclusively learned that the Irish actress, Saoirse Ronan, is the “prototype” for the film’s version of the Scarlet Witch character. However, no official casting has been announced.

Whedon also spoke in the interview about the ending of Iron Man 3. Warning there ARE spoilers below this point.

“Well, I feel like in Iron Man 3, even though he said, ‘I’ve changed’ — he blew up his remote suits, but I don’t think anybody thinks he doesn’t have one anymore. The question is, if The Avengers are called, does he show up? And the answer is, ‘Yes!’”

Casting for The Avengers 2 is still coming together with many rumors flying around about potential actors being replaced. Regardless of who ultimately assembles for the sequel, Marvel’s The Avengers 2 hits the big screen on May 1, 2015.

Roundup of the Super Bowl Spots For This Year’s Upcoming Adaptations

The Super Bowl each year is a huge event in the world of sports as well as the world of advertising. This year’s Super Bowl ad spots showed some new teaser trailers for several highly anticipated big and small screen adaptations that are set to hit theaters and televisions throughout the year. We have rounded them up for you below.

Under The Dome

An upcoming CBS television series based on the novel of the same name by famed writer Stephen King. The first episode was helmed by Niels Arden Oplev, most known for his work on the original The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The story tells of a small town in Maine which is cut off from the rest of the world by an invisible dome. With air, food and patience dwindling, societal norms within this town begin to break down.

“Under the Dome” will debut on CBS June 24 at 10/9c.

Oz The Great And Powerful

The Walt Disney Pictures psuedo-adaptation of the classic novel by L. Frank Baum is set to his theaters in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on March 8.

Based on the characters and world created in “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” the film follows  Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, as he is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot–fame and fortune are his for the taking–that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity–and even a bit of wizardry–Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.

The Walking Dead

Time Warner released three new television spots during the Super Bowl for the upcoming second half of season 3. One of the teasers included a cameo from Norman Reedus who plays fan favorite character Daryl. The last two videos are different versions of the same commercial.

“This campaign uniquely and cleverly captures the spirit of ‘The Walking Dead’ as well as featuring one of the series’ most iconic characters, Daryl Dixon,” said Charlie Collier, President and General Manager of AMC. “We are thrilled to be working with Time Warner Cable to bring fans of ‘The Walking Dead,’ one of television’s most passionate and engaged audiences, even better ways to experience and re-experience the zombie apocalypse.”

World War Z

This (not even close) adaptation of the Max Brooks zombie novel features Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox and David Morse. The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.

Iron Man 3

The next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios debuted a 30-second Super Bowl spot for Iron Man 3.

Hitting 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters on May 3, the Shane Black-directed sequel stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau, Ben Kingsley and Wang Xuequi.

Tony Stark is back and when he finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

‘Iron Man 3’ Trailer Unleashed

After the teaser to the teaser trailer put us all in a tizzy, we can finally relax, having enjoyed the first trailer for Iron Man 3. All I can say is, “Oh yeah!” This one definitely looks better than Iron Man 2.

For me, Iron Man was one of the best Marvel Comics based films to debut. When I saw Tony Stark in live action, speeding through the skies, war-gaming with Jarvis, I had to wipe a tear from my eye. A comic book legend had really, truly come to life. And hardly any actor looks more like his comic book alter ego than Robert Downey, Jr. looks like Tony.

If we’re honest, the highlight of the sequel was meeting Black Widow. I thought Mickey Rourke did a pretty spectacular Russian accent and it’s always a joy to see Sam Rockwell on the screen, but let’s face it, some bits with Whiplash were a little cartoony.

Yes, Joss Whedon’s Avengers was awesome, but that doesn’t mean I had the highest hopes for a thrilling Iron Man 3. Don’t even get me started on Captain America 2. Will they introduce Sharon Carter or not? I simply must know!

I have to say this trailer restores my faith in the Iron Man solo franchise.

Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios will release Iron Man 3 in 3D and 2D on May 3rd, 2013. The film is directed by Shane Black. Along with Downey, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jon Favreau and Don Cheadle also return. Are you ready for some bad guys? Okay, so Ben Kingsley is acting as scary villain, The Mandarin. Right now I’m on the fence about how I feel about this. Sir Kingsley is an Oscar winner, but he also played a role in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The film wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, but there’s a danger here of what happened to Whiplash in part two. There’s a fine line between drama and melodrama.

Now the baddie who cannot fail is Mr. Guy Pearce. Yes, you heard me. He just performed a killer cameo in Prometheus as Peter Weyland and now he’ll be a comic book villain. Rock on! He was pretty much already a super villain in Prohibition film, Lawless, anyway. He knows what he’s doing.

Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak and James Badge Dale round out the cast. Seems to me the plot will loosely follow the Extremis storyline from the comics. The synopsis circulated the web were a little vague, however. They refer to The Mandarin as simply “an enemy whose reach knows no bounds”. Stark will suffer some personal trauma. It looks like his home is toppled into the ocean. This seems to test Stark in a grueling way, the likes of which we haven’t seen since his original story. Here’s the money line: “Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?”

I’ll be watching! Now, who can tell me why there’s a red, white and blue iron man suit? Okay, it’s more of a silver than a white, but that made me very nervous. If you’ve read Marvel’s Civil War arc, you’d be anxious about it, too. Oh, I get it now. The patriotic suit belongs to War Machine, a.k.a. Rhodes. Duh.

Update For Iron Man 3 Features The Patriotic Armor

SuperHeroHype has confirmed that Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 will feature the red, white and blue Iron Patriot armor. The tri-colored armor first appeared in 2009’s Dark Avengers #1.

Following the Secret Invasion crossover, Norman Osborn was mistakenly thought of as a hero, and made the leader of a group of government-sanctioned Avengers, according to SHH. Using technology from Stark Industries, Osborn designed his suit as an homage to the recently-deceased Captain America.

However, this won’t likely be how it works in the film though, because Osborn is a Spider-Man villain, and Sony Pictures owns the rights.

Iron Man 3 is currently in production in North Carolina, and stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, James Badge Dale, Ashley Hamilton and Jon Favreau. The film is intended to be a sequel to 2010’s Iron Man 2 and the 7th installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It will be in theaters May 3, 2013.

WARNING: Potential spoilers follow.

ComingSoon has also obtained photos of the new suit, along with a look at exactly who will be wearing it. James Badge Dale, who plays Eric Savin in the film, will be donning the patriotic armor. In the comic books, Savin becomes the cyborg villain Coldblood, though it is not known whether this will play into the film.
