Big comic book movies are at the forefront of pop-culture as we head into the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, and Marvel Studios is trying to stay ahead of the pack in a big way, as they promote both Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers: Age of Ultron at this year’s convention – while also teasing their Phase 3 lineup.

We’ve already seen the first official image of James Spader’s Ultron – and Guardians promo materials have been coming non-stop – but on the PR front, Marvel Studios head of production Kevin Feige is taking to the press circuit to confront some recently leaked Avengers 2 plot details. Needless to say, what follows should be considered MILD SPOILERS FOR AGE OFULTRON!!!!

Scarlet Witch Quicksilver Avengers Costumes Revealed Leaked Avengers 2 Story Details Confirmed by Marvels Kevin Feige

Here are the story leaks we’ve heard re-iterated over the last few months. Compare those (bullet) points to what Feige officially told IGN during a Guardians of the Galaxy preview footage event in London:

  • Film opens with an experienced Avengers team battling Baron von Strucker, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch at their base.
  • After the battle, the team celebrates in Stark’s Avengers Tower.

FEIGE: Last time we saw Stark Tower, from The Avengers, it had gotten beat up a little bit thanks to Hulk and thanks to Loki and the Chituari, and Pepper and Tony were standing over a table looking at plans” he explained. “That’s where we pulled out and all the letters had fallen away except the ‘A’ in Stark. So what they were doing was retro-fitting for The Avengers. And that’s what we see in this next film.

  • Avengers Tower will be a huge set piece/base. Banner and Stark will have a lab together – big hanger for modified team Quinjets – the works.

FEIGE: “S.H.I.E.L.D. is gone – for people who are following along. S.H.I.E.L.D. was disbanded and brought down at the end of The Winter Soldier because it turned out to not be the best organization ever. So Tony’s bank-rolling The Avengers now. And he’s bank-rolling their headquarters. So it’s now Avengers Tower.

“Tony designed it so in addition to a hanger for a brand-new Quinjet, laboratories, places where he can build and store his Iron Man suits, there are I believe two bars. Beautiful multiple space living rooms which are perfect for parties and social gatherings. But it’s a primary location in the film this time around.”

  1. I don’t think I could be any more excited for this movie!

  2. Sounds like this is gonna be an Avengers movie that feels like a true Avengers story, with the quinjet, Tower, and all. EMH guys!!! I’m geeeking out! If only we have Hank and Jan in the team though… (their position is taken by Pietro and Wanda, methinks)

    And Ultron? He looked weird in the behind the scene shots, but the final look is simply stunning, and works just like the comic/tv animations.

    And is it just me, or I’m sensing a Civil War-ish vibe from that EW cover? Hmmmm

    • There are 3 versions of Ultron I can’t wait this movie

  3. I’m more of a DC guy. But I cant wait for this movie! It really seems like it wont be a let down with not enough action and a weak villain.

    • First Avengers was a huge letdown, no main villain and very mediocre action. Hopefully they learn from their mistakes this time around.

      • Funnily enough, I thought that about The Avengers and thought The First Avengers was pretty good, kept me entertained throughout.

        • He’s talking about the first Avengers film, not Captain America: The First Avenger.

          • Ahh, when he said First Avenger….should’ve been a little clearer.

            • First Avengers not First Avenger.

      • Actually it was by far the most faithful comic book movie to date. As for your perceived lack of main villain… how could you forget there was a certain Loki? You know, that half-brother of the thunder dude…

      • Um what?! Did we watch the same movie. No main villian?

  4. I like how everyone gets cool high-tech upgrades and Hulk just gets size-changing pants. It’s not like he NEEDS anything else, but it still made me laugh.

    • He needs a technologically advanced elasticated belt to go with them.

      • Some innovative stretchy boxers probably wouldn’t go amiss, either.

        • We can only hope. Unless they get the rights to Mr Fantastic and he cameos as Hulk’s boxers.

          • Hahaha, Worst Job Ever.

            • Just imagine Mr. Fantastic’s face where Hulk’s junk would be, and he stretches out his top portion of his body while acting as Hulk’s pants helping the hulk fight, or when they’re not fighting Mr. Fantastic would just casually stretch out his body and talk to people while acting as Hulk’s boxers. lolollol hahahahahahaahahaaaa!

              • I WAS going to say this last night but decided against it but since you lowered the tone even more, here we go…

                I pictured a bulge and some movement in Hulk’s shorts and when everyone looks, he denies it’s him and shows that it’s just Reed Richards giving a thumbs up in approval of an idea that had just been suggested.

                *lowering the tone further since 1984*

  5. I bet Ultron finds issue with Hulk and that’s what pits him against the rest of The Avengers.

    Hulk buster will be awesome!

  6. Yep, bring it on.

  7. Yes! Maybe Black Widow & Hulk have drunken one night stand

    • Really?

  8. In case anyone missed this Easter Egg…The Avengers Tower is actually shown (completed) in Captain America 2. In the scene where the Helicarriers are targeting people in the final battle, one of them zooms in and you can clearly see Avengers Tower.

    • Yeah, that’s where Tony’s blip in the Insight targeting system was, so I guess he’s at least somewhat gotten over the PTSD thing from Iron Man 3.

      Pretty much all of Phase 2 has been about destroying the Avengers’ homes so they have to move in together for Avengers 2.

      • Big Brother, Marvel style.

        “Day 34. Tony is in the hot tub. Natasha is gossiping in the kitchen with Steve about last night’s argument between Tony and herself.”

        • The funniest thing is that I can completely see that being the case!

        • I’d watch that show.

          • Black Widow walking to the kitchen in the middle of the night, wearing a granny nightgown.

  9. Yes! Can’t wait!

  10. Won’t be anything compared to Batman v Superman.

    • LOL, DC fanboy alert!

      • LOL, Marvel fanboy alert!

        See how that kind of comment brings nothing to a discussion?

        • You mean the first one from Dison, right? What did that comment bring to the discussion?

          You can praise/despise something on its own merits. No need for the automatic comparison. It’s not articulated and just childish.

  11. Ooh, it’s gonna be a looong year trying to avoid the details of this movie, but I know I can do it!!

    • Im struggling with Guardians of the Galaxy lol

  12. So that’s Thor, Avengers, Days of Future Past, and Avengers 2 all using that smoldering Destroyer effect. They got nothing else?

    I shouldn’t even count the first Avengers though cuz they at least admitted it.

    • Well Ultron is supposed to kinda look like that. In the comics he has this fixed open mouth with lights coming out of it.

    • they all got it from hellboy 2! this was the effect developed for the golden army and it totally rocked! but, between the two marvel franchises, avengers universe utilized it first and it works that the tech originated from the destroyer. the x-men super sentinel rips off the destroyer design, and let’s face it, stealing mystique’s powers would only allow them to look like other mutants, truly stealing their powers was rogue’s gift and yet she was cut from the film completely! i guess it was just an excuse to utilize hollywood’s new ‘it’ girl jennifer lawrence’ before people realize she just can’t act! (we’re looking at you halle berry!)
      my point is, every thing is a note of what has been done before, marvel studios has taken those note and arranged them into a somewhat cohesive storyline, whereas fox jumbles these notes together (and outright changes some(kitty pryde’s powers)) to tell whatever story they want to tell.

  13. i hope they kill someone off in this movie i want more drama

    • They won’t. Because these movies are made for the children, they don’t want to upset the parents by making it too “dark”, especially by killing one of its heroes. I hope they kill one of them off, because they need to stop this cartoony, dumbed down, superhero movies being too kid friendly.

      • That PG-13 rating is where the money is. Marvel is going to stay with that formula until the well runs dry.

      • So just to be clear, are you wanting comic/superhero movies to something that you can’t take a kid to? So, I’m guessing you got into comics as an adult then.

        • I got into 2000AD as a 6 year old and those comics were full of things like Judge Dredd shooting shoplifters in the head and other violent things.

      • They actually might kill someone off… Whedon has hinted at it… somewhat.. somewhere…

      • Well, I disagree that it’s “dumbed down” and made for children just because it has a lighter tone compared to for example Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy.

        Btw. they did kill Phil Coulson in The Avengers. I know he isn’t dead after all, but at the time we’re presented with that which appears to be a death.

        They’ve also killed people in the Iron Man movies and the Captain America movies.

        • Whedon has said this script is much darker and SR has posted articles discussing how much darker and grittier the script is. He has hinted that not the whole team will make it through this movie also, so everything points to a death in this movie, maybe the only way to up the ante from 1st film. And lets just be honest, just bc someone dies in A2 doesn’t mean they wont be in A3, plus it already gives us a cliffhanger going into phase 3, so I can totally see it happening.

          And since when does pg-13 mean you cant kill people? Dark Knight Rises anyone (best sequel/batman movie ever, if you disagree just quit watching movies)

          • Whedon hinted that not all of the members will return, but not that he would kill a member. There will probably be a hulk related incident (the reason for the hulk buster being in the movie) and the avengers will send him in space creating a premise for a Planet hulk movie. I believe that because they still want to keep hulk relevant but his solo movies were the action was revolving around banner and his struggles were busts so in this adaptation we will see hulk saving an entire planet because of his strenght

            • They aren’t going to do a Planet Hulk, simply because there isn’t any Banner in that story, it’s all Hulk… what’s been rumored is that Ultron will launch the Hulk into space because he’s such a viable threat… with us likely seeing him pop up into the Guardians sequel.. As much as I want a Hulk standalone, the studio is nervous with 2 disappointments in the bag already…

            • The problem w/ “Whedon said” or “Whedon hinted” is that he did so half jokingly ONLY Feige *REALLY* controls who lives & who dies in the MCU! We know Cap & Thor are safe as both have 3′s & 2 more movies on their contracts, RDJr is safe for the same reason (A3) the likeliest team casualty is Hawkeye

          • I completely disagree… TDKR was a decent movie but far from the best, the movie was hastily put together with way too many plot holes. I enjoyed it but not without many complaints. The Dark Knight was a superior sequel, hands down. TDKR was rushed and seemed like they used the spaghetti philosophy… throw it against the wall and use what sticks…

      • If they do kill people off it’ll probably be in Avengers 3, because that’s when most of the main cast’s contracts run out.

      • And I hope they keep giving us fun superhero movies … there are so many “dark” movies and TV shows out there … I’ll be glad if Marvel manages to keep the tone relatively light, but I suspect the “darker, grittier” crowd will get their wish, sooner or later.

      • What are you talking about. Feige has already confirmed this is darker, more violent, bloodier,and an avenger will die. That is the whole premise!

    • i have theory that quicksilver may die as part of scarlett’s character development and also to resolve future xmen/avengers quicksilver crossover issues

      • Scarlett? OK, so there’s ScarleT Witch and then there’s ScarleTT Johansson… I guess you’re talking about the former?

        Also, considering the nasty stunt Singer pulled with his Quicksilver, do you really think there’s a chance of Marvel wanting to crossover with Fox anytime soon?

  14. So a skyscraper is now a much safer place for the avengers? As to not killing off anyone…well, it has been hinted that in the third movie it will be Rogers with Bucky stepping in. It would make sense. As would Tony kicking the bucket somehow and having his son (Anthony Jr????) pick up thee armour and carry on or something like that. This would be a far better way to carry things on, then using some sort of crappy time traveling story just to explain why a new Iron Man looks completely different to the current one that we all know and love.

    • I don’t think it’s supposed to be a fortress.

      I think Rhodes would be the new Iron Man that makes sense. And when did Stark get a son?

      Time traveling story?

      Mark Ruffalo looks nothing like Edward Norton. It is possible to change an actor without changing the character or coming up with explanations to account for the change. It’s just different guys playing the same role. We’ll handle it with the power of imagination ;)

      • Yeah, after IM2 I had completely forgotten that Rhodey was played by a different actor in IM1.

    • Well, from a leaked description I read yesterday, Ultron shows up with his Legion of robots threatening the Avengers at their tower.

  15. looks like Hulk will finally get some purple pants.

  16. I wonder if Avengers 2 or Batman v Superman could end up being the biggest movie of all time.

    • Problem with biggest is that the prices keep going up so records will continue to break off that alone.

  17. Hulk smashes metal space alien/ship that is 20 times his size in one punch and Iron Man just needs a bit bigger suit to be as strong.

    There better be some decent explanation other than just a big suit.

    • Must be using Shi’ar technology!

    • OK first, you know there are various kinds of metal with various properties, right? Like harder or softer… Also, I guess you’re referring to the giant Chitauri “slug.” Well you know what? These bio-engineered beasts only have a few metal parts. Most of their mass is visibly made of flesh.

  18. I want to see Cap pick up Thor’s hammer and smack Ultron.

    • It would be awesome if at the beginning there was a scene where cap tried to pick it up but couldn’t but then at the end Thor gets killed by ultron, so cap picks up the hammer and beats ultron to death with it.

      • Cap could never fail to pick up Thor’s hammer: he’s the poster boy for goodness, courage and valor.

  19. Take my money!!

  20. DC vs Marvel is more juvenile & odd then IH vs John Deere, who cares? They both have great characters and movies, although you’d think we would have seen Wolverine on the big screen by now, but I digress.

    • Wolverine? Either it’s a joke that regrettably falls flat or a mistake. I just had to point it to you in case it’s the latter.
