We Marvelites are a lucky bunch this week, having recieved Thor: The Dark World's first teaser trailer on Tuesday and Iron Man 3 in cinemas today. On top of those, though, there have also been a couple of pretty interesting news reveals, and being the charitable folks we are here at On-Screen, we thought it would be simpler to round it all up in one place. Here's our guide to all the latest Marvel film news:
- IRON MAN: THE END?- Gwyneth Paltrow had some interesting comments today when she was quizzed about the possibility of another standalone Iron Man film after the current one. Here's what she had to say: "I don't think there will be an Iron Man 4. I think we're done." By we, in context Gwyneth means herself and Robert Downey Jr, although it seems likely that Robert's contract will be extended through The Avengers 2. Although this may be the last solo film for Tony Stark, don't be surprised if he "waves his customary retainer" in future team-up films for years to come!
- JOSS WHEDON ON NEW AVENGERS- On a different note, The Avengers 2 writer Joss Whedon has today revealed a couple of hints about what we can expect from the ensemble sequel. Joss has teased that "a brother-sister act" of two new characters from the comic book will join the Avengers team in the second instalment, speculated by many fans to be Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Whether these two characters can be negotiated with Fox to not be used in future X-Men films is another matter, but if this is the case then we could even build towards an Avengers Disassembled adaptation, which is a truly incredible prospect...
Iron Man 3 is out now in cinemas across the UK, while The Wolverine claws into cinemas worldwide on July 16th and Thor: The Dark World hammers its way into UK theatres on October 30th.
