COMIC-CON SATURDAY: Marvel Studios ‘Phase Two’ Announcements

At the Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con, several new sub-titles and release dates were announced, as were some rumor confirmations regarding the ‘Phase Two’ of their upcoming film slate. “Phase Two” would refer to the movies in the post-Avengers timeline.

Ben Kingsley has been (finally) confirmed as the main villain in the Shane Black directed Iron Man 3, playing The Mandarin. In addition, Stephanie Szostak has been announced as the latest addition to cast of the film, which is currently shooting in North Carolina. Downey will also be joined by newcomers Guy Pearce, James Badge Dale, and Rebecca Hall in addition to the returning Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, and Jon Favreau.

Iron Man 3 is rumored to be based on the “Extremis” storyline from the comic book arc written by Warren Ellis. Tony Stark uses nanotechnology that allows him to merge with his Iron Man armor on a cellular level to defeat a terrorist organization. The concept art below does not dispute the direction the film may take.
