At Comic-Con this weekend, Marvel announced “Phase 2,” a new wave of films that will include sequels to “Thor,” “Captain America,” and “Iron Man.” Banking on the success of “The Avengers,” now the most popular superhero movie ever, six new movies tied into that universe were announced.
The first film to come will be “Iron Man 3″ on May 3, 2013. It will reportedly be the last film in the series, with the director, Shane Black, saying they envisoned it as a trilogy with a set end. Next to be released will be “Thor: The Dark World,” on November 8, 2013 and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” on April 4, 2014.
But that's not it for 2014! Two new series are also set to start: “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which came with artwork seen below, and “Ant-Man,” currently set to come out sometime in two years. “Ant-Man” sounds ridiculous—it's about a superhero who can shrink to take down bad guys, but it's set to be directed by Edgar Wright, who did “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz,” so it might be worth a look.
