Captain America, Thor and Spider-Man Sequels Confirmed For Comic-Con

Surprising no one, Marvel has confirmed it will present Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier at Comic-Con International, while Sony will preview The Amazing Spider-Man 2, along with RoboCop and the animated Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2.

Deadline notes that studio President Kevin Feige is the only listed panelist for Marvel’s July 20 Hall H presentation, there’s the promise of “many special guests.” Considering the venue has been used in previous years to introduce the cast of The Avengers, premiere director Edgar Wright’s fabled Ant-Man test footage and officially announce Guardians of the Galaxy, it seems likely the studio will take this opportunity to cement some of its Phase Three plans. Expect news on Doctor Strange, and perhaps another name or two to pair with those 2016 and 2017 release dates.

And don’t forget Big Hero 6, Disney’s first animated Marvel film, as well as the promised “Marvel One-Shot” short featuring Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter.

Sony, however, is far less secretive about its plans: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb will be joined July 19 by stars Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan. It will mark the second Comic-Con appearance for Garfield, who won over many skeptical fans in 2011 when he memorably appeared in the audience for the first film’s panel dressed in a store-bought Spider-Man costume. Breathless and with a quivering voice, the actor stepped up to the Q&A microphone to deliver a heartfelt speech about what the character meant to him as a child.

The studio will also bring Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn, and actors Anna Faris and Terry Crews, as well as RoboCop director Jose Padilha and stars Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish and Samuel L. Jackson.

    B-b-b-b-but…I wan’t Deadpool!

    It’s really sad. I’ve never been more excited for movies like I have been for the MCU. It really seemed like they could do no wrong.

    Then I saw IM3. And suddenly Fiege didn’t feel like the someone that loved the MU and it’s characters as much as he seemed. And thus my ‘faith’ was shaken.

    Phase 3 worries me. Hopefully SDCC and then Thor TDW will bring me back …

    I bet the one-shot will reveal that it was Peggy who inspired or started up S.H.I.E.L.D., after the shield of Steve Rogers, Captain America. Look how the emblem is as round as Cap’s shield and how it has what looks like an American Eagle on it.

    Logic…. Null.

    It’ll never happen. There will never be a DEADPOOL movie.

  • Edstone1

    Wahhhhhhhhh!!!!!! Wahhhhhhhhhhh!:(

  • Michael Wood

    I’m sorry.

    Somebody has to be the one to dole out the reality checks and if I’m the guy, then I’m the guy.

  • Edstone1

    I had a teeny-tiny hope that the Deadpool game would bee a massive hit that would make Hollywood see the light but it doesn’t look like that’s gonna happen…
    I still reserve the right to bitch about it though, reality checks be damned! :)

  • BoilingMan

    I got lost in all those acronyms. Seriously what do they mean and is it really that hard to just to spell it out? lol

  • DarthTigris

    No it’s not hard. Most understand the acronyms, so it’s just faster.

    But since you asked so nicely

    MCU = Marvel Cinematic Universe

    IM3 = Iron Man 3

    MU = Marvel Universe

    SDCC = San Diego Comic-Con (which is short for Comic Convention)

    Thor TDW = Thor: The Dark World

  • batGRRRl4ever

    Comic Book Guy, is that you? :P

    I think that there are many characters from the X-Men franchise that can have their own movies and then be brought in for a team movie just like the likes of the Avengers and the characters that made their team.
