Creating a sequel always presents a unique set of challenges, and crafting the third entry in a series can prove even more difficult at times. So when Producer Kevin Feige started looking towards Marvel’s “Iron Man 3,” he knew he had to shift the tone of the series in order to push Tony Stark to places he hadn’t been before.
Joined by director Shane Black, Feige delved into what makes “Iron Man 3” unique and how they built the Armored Avenger’s most dangerous adventure yet, hitting theaters and IMAX 3D May 3. And just in case you missed it, check out the second full trailer for the film now!
Marvel has posted some teasers for announcements they will be making at South by South West this Sunday. They have already started letting some of the cats out of some of the bags though. Today they announced the debut of their newly rebranded Marvel Unlimited feature. It will be the banner that all their digital comics will go out on from now on. It will allow for access by iPad and iPhone with Android access coming in the near future. It will be their new digital subscription service as well allowing people access to thousand of comics for $10 a month or $60 annually. Of the 13,000 comics now stored on the server you will be able to utiilize 6 at a time of your choice when not connected to the online service. A virtual library really. More features will be announced in the future as a lot of work is still going into this new digital service.
Rumor making the rounds is that Nova and the Nova Corps will be involved in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. It makes sense. Those ships in the background of the Guaridans promo art from Comic Con last year look a whole lot like Nova mask emblems. Guardians of the Galaxy will take place mostly in space and whateve rthey are going up against it makes sense that the Nova Corps would be involved. Much like Green Lantern from DC the Nova Corps are pretty much intergalatic police officers and they would be involved in some kind of epic tier battle if it happened. With Marvel bringing some lesser known characters like the Guardians to the forefront it also makes sense they would want to put someone like Nova out there as well. No info on which version of Nova we will be getting. With Marvel wanting to make a more cohesive universe it is more likely the younger and newer Sam Alexander instead of the more familiar Richard Rider. Most likely though it will be neither and simply be the introduction of the Nova Corps itself with Richard or Sam becoming members at a later time. Possibly setting up for a solo Nova story in the future. Consider it all rumor for now but a pretty solid one at that.
