I am fiercely proud to announce a new feature here as we launch our weekly video series the Xavierpop Movie Minute.
Production has started on the second chapter of the film adventures of Captain America. We already had a glance at some of the concept art for Captain America : The Winter Soldier
There have been rumblings and teasers and hints and all kinds of goodyness being dropped over the last while about Phase II of Marvel’s plans. Following up an epic Phase I that culminated in the magnum opus that is Marvel’s The Avengers is no small task. It seems that the studio is up to the task as we are now getting images and a teaser video of the second phase found in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled Blu-ray box set just released.
Sure, you might be a little tired of hearing about us going on about Marvel’s The Avengers. Our over 30+ articles when the movie came out would make anyone run for the hills. However, this is The Avengers powered by the man Joss Whedon, so really, it’s never enough in our book.
The folks over at Screen Junkies seem to agree with a bit of a different spin. For the next installment of their highly popular web series “Honest Trailers” they have chosen the behometh that is The Avengers. And man is it awesome.
Basically, it takes all the criticisms of the film and whipped it up into trailer form. Even though The Avengers is one of my favourite movies all year, this trailer is a great watch because really, it’s not all that wrong.
What say you?
During the Walt Disney Conference Call, they Mouse House confirmed that Joss Whedon, the main reason that Marvel’s The Avengers was such a great movie, has signed on to write and direct the sequel to the third highest grossing film of all time. That is excellent news that has a legion of nerds breathing a sigh of relief.
