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:
“Ant-Man” has no stars or a plot, but it does have a director and a release date, which is November 6, 2015.
And finally, here are some behind-the-scenes looks at “Thor: The Dark World”:
Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman returns for the sequel, along with Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, Anthony Hopkins. Alan Taylor is directing the sequel, which is due November 8, 2013.
