Looks like we’ve got our first taste of what Marvel will be offering up in 2014 in their Phase 2 slate of films, thanks to concept artwork for “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” and behind-the-scenes images from “Thor: The Dark World”. All of these goodies were made available via the “Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled” Blu-ray box set that just went on sale yesterday.

Geek Zenith was the first to reveal concept artwork for “Captain America 2″ and “Guardians of the Galaxy”, and now IGN has added high-def looks at that Edgar Wright “Ant-Man” teaser, along with our first looks at “Thor: The Dark World” and more images from “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Guardians of the Galaxy”.

Here’s a preview of the 5-minute long Phase 2 featurette on the box set:


Up first, some concept artwork for “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”, including the Captain in action and our first look at what, apparently, the Falcon will look like:

“The Winter Soldier” will star Chris Evans as Steve Rogers aka Captain America, and will co-star Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, and Robert Redford. Brothers Anthony and Joe Russo are directing the film, set for next year, April 4, 2014.


And these are concept artwork for “Guardians of the Galaxy”, which are just as space-y as we would expect given that the movie will mostly take place in space and on alien planets filled with, well, aliens and what not:

“Guardians” will star Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista, with the rest of the film’s cast still uncast. James Gunn is directing the film, which is due next year, August 1, 2014.


Remember that Edgar Wright “Ant-Man” test footage that he’s been showing everywhere? Well the whole short is apparently included in the Blu-ray box set. Here are some screenshots from it:

    Man i can’t wait to see these! I recently started reading up Gotg and it would be amazing to see what they do with it.

  • yaweeeh

    I wish captain america 2 don’t be like the first one. I’m waiting it so exited :B:B:B.
    Idon´t like baptista, since I was a kid I prefer the roch, but it doesn’t matter :v

    So with Sebastian Stan casted in Captain America, does that mean there will be a lot of flashbacks? since he played tony stark’s dad in the first one and he has since died in the Marvel Universe as we know it. (ironman 2)

      Howard Stark was played by Dominic Cooper.

      Sebastian Stan played James “Bucky” Barnes, Steve Rogers’ best friend who meets his untimely end when he falls out of the train to his frosty demise.

    BRING IT!!! Loving Falcon’s and Winter Soldier’s look so far. Also love the Guardians concept art. Ant Man looked sick.

    Glad to see they may put Cap back in his WWII era uniform. I like the Winter soldier look although the glasses and mask thing are a bit Harry Osbourne-esque, LOL. I’m pleasantly surprised that they decided to give Falcon the wings. Looks like a bit of STARK tech to me. I really hope that he gets the red and white in his costume though.
    GOTG looks like it’ll be epic! I’m really starting to get exited about the possibilities of that movie. Canteen a scene looks like it will be a cool nod.
    Ant-Man is one that I’m really hoping starts to flesh out.
    Thor 2 should be awesome however the last pic with Hemsworth and Portman on Asgard is definately spoiler territory.

      Falcon’s wing’s being Stark Tech is perfect!!! I always figured they’d go with a look like the Ultimate version. He should be presented with his costume by Cap at the end inviting him to join the Avengers. Agreed on the Winter Soldier’s look, but I think that may be when he’s hiding his identity from Cap. Also would be good infiltration gear.
      GOTG will be one part Star Wars, one part Firefly/Serenity, one part Ice Pirates!!!
      I can’t wait!!
