SDCC 2013: Godzilla panel: Aaron Taylor-Johnson

We heard back in June that Aaron Taylor-Johnson, star of Kick-Ass, Kick-Ass 2, and the upcoming Godzilla reboot, was wanted by Marvel for the role of Quicksilver in Joss Whedon‘s follow-up to The Avengers, titled The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and now that casting has been confirmed.

Taylor-Johnson’s schedule promoting Godzilla overlapped with filming on the Age of Ultron, which is why the casting had not yet been made official. Those scheduling conflicts have now been worked out, allowing the actor to take on the role.

SDCC 2013; Joss Whedon The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron

The Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday was, as expected, full of surprises and treats for the fans in Hall H. Along with the planned panel for Thor: The Lost World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (both of which showed off new footage), there was also an appearance of the cast for Guardians Of The Galaxy and the very first footage of the upcoming movie.

But, at the very end of Marvel’s panel, as the stage emptied, director Joss Whedon, who’s currently working on the sequel to The Avengers, came out and said that although he had nothing to say, he did have something to add. Cue the screams of tired but eager fans as the lights went down and the screens lit up to show a teaser video for The Avengers 2, the end of which gave a massive reveal.

Vin Diesel Image

Two weeks ago news broke that Vin Diesel of Pitch Black and the Fast and the Furious franchises was meeting with Marvel Studios about a possible mystery role in one of their forthcoming movies. How did we find that out? Diesel revealed it on his Facebook page!

So then began speculation about what role that could be, and how exactly would the established action star fit into a cinematic universe that has launched more than a few acting careers but whose parent studio has become infamous for its draconian business practices. Fueling the rampant theorizing, Diesel posted this picture on his Facebook today…

Joss Whedon Confirms Loki Won’t Appear In ‘The Avengers 2’

Loki Won't Be In The Avengers 2

As much of a menace as he is to all the nine worlds of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it appears that there is one thing that can stop Loki dead in his tracks: a script. Now this doesn’t mean that Tom Hiddleston had a falling out with Marvel, Disney, or Joss Whedon, it just means that he won’t be in The Avengers 2. This is definitely a disappointment to anyone who is a fan of the actor or the character who loves to hear line like “Mewling quim” or “An ant has no quarrel with a boot.”

While a disappointment, it isn’t entirely unexpected. To have him as the villain, even in a smaller capacity, would be somewhat boring. Also that little teaser at the end of the first Avengers confirmed that Thanos is a greater threat than Loki and was the one pulling the strings, so why subject the audience to another appearance made by Loki, when you can have someone as powerful as Thanos.

Guardians of the Galaxy

The cast of James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy is just out of this world, and it was long suspected that the group would join forces with The Avengers to fend off the Thanos threat in The Avengers 2. But with filming expected to begin this month, and two more roles to fill, we won’t be seeing what Guardians of the Galaxy for quite a while.

Despite what we may think is going to happen, The Avengers 2 director Joss Whedon made it clear that there will be no such team up happening any time soon, no matter how awesome it looks in our heads.

Iron Man 3: Mark 42 and Tony

He may be the face of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Robert Downey Jr.‘s contract with the studio ended with Iron Man 3, and surprisingly enough, he is not signed on for The Avengers 2, at least not yet. Word is that Downey is renegotiating his contract to appear in the next two films, but as to the standalone Iron Man installments, that is still up in the air. Whether or not he will appear in any of the upcoming Avengers sequels remains to be seen, but The Avengers director Joss Whedon believes that Downey will return to reprise his role.

During one of the press rounds for his upcoming adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, Whedon spoke to Newsweek’s The Daily Beast about the matter and is confident that Downey will return.

Evan Peters To Play Quicksilver In ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’; What Does This Mean For ‘The Avengers 2’?

Evan Peters As Quicksilver

When Joss Whedon announced that Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch were to appear in The Avengers 2, it posed an interesting and legally pondering question. Could one character appear in two different franchises run by two different studios? In comic book lore, Magneto is the father of mutant twins, Quicksilver and the Scarlett Witch. Since the two are both mutants, they technically are a part of the X-Men property, which is also under the 20th Century Fox banner. However, the two are also members of the Avengers, which happens to be under the Marvel/Disney banner.

Now with Bryan Singer well into shooting X-Men: Days Of Future Past, he has made a stunning casting announcement. The director recently tweeted that Evan Peters will play Quicksilver, the mutant who is capable of running at superhuman speeds.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

On Tuesday Disney released the mammoth, 10-disc Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled Blu-ray set containing all six of Marvel Studio’s first blockbuster superhero adventures and a host of exclusive bonus features. The set also came with a special code that buyers could enter at the S.H.I.E.L.D. Mainframe website and view a video preview prepared by Marvel that offers some tantalizing glimpses at their upcoming Phase Two movies Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, and their first Phase Three movie Ant-Man.

Last night some enterprising individuals posted the video online but Marvel and Disney quickly exercised their legal superpowers and had it pulled. Fortunately for us they were not able to pull down a host of still images from the preview that survived. Some of them we posted yesterday before we knew for sure they were legit, but now we have a ton more to share with you.

You can check them all out here below.
