SPIDER-MANDATE: The Lowe-down on "Secret Wars," Tie-Ins and Stacey Lee
This evening at Comic-Con International, Marvel Studios revealed its plans for Phase Two of its cinematic universe, announcing titles for the Captain America and Thor sequels, while confirming Guardians of the Galaxy and revealing the first concept art. Director Edgar Wright also showed off test footage for the long-developing Ant-Man.
Lending credence to speculation that the follow-up to Captain America: The First Avenger will borrow from Ed Brubaker’s acclaimed Marvel comics storyline, the sequel to last year’s hit will be called Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo, the film opens April 4, 2014.
Helmed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), Thor: The Dark World will arrive in theaters Nov. 8, 2013. And Guardians of the Galaxy is, of course, the mystery release set for Aug. 1, 2014.
Look for a full panel report soon on Comic Book Resources.
