Marvel News RoundUp

As “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” quickly approaches, we are getting more and more info on the movie and, by extension, “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

Recently, Bob Iger announced that The Winter Soldier will lead directly into Age of Ultron (though if you’re looking for Thanos, you’ll have to see “Guardians of the Galaxy”).

As with the other Phase 2 movies, Marvel is releasing a prelude comic to tie into The Winter Soldier (you can read my thoughts on the Marvel tie-in comics). We can also expect a crossover episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

And, you can check out what The First Avenger himself has to say about the new movie.

Staying on the topic of Cap, but leaving the big screen, beginning on March 7, the Star Spangled Man will be the third Avenger to have a presence at Walt’s Park.

And the last bit of news is still filed under the rumor category, but I am really hoping it comes true. There is talk that the second wave of Disney Infinity characters will include characters from both the Marvel Universe and the Star Wars Universe.

So, who would you like to see as a playable character? I would love web-sling as Spidey or battle lightsabers as Yoda.

One last treat: here’s a picture of Jaime Alexander as Sif on the set of AoS.

About Chris Fox

Chris grew up during the Disney renaissance of animation and took his first trip to Disney World when he was ten. Even though he has loved Disney his whole life, his obsession didn't start until he began planning a trip for his honeymoon. Right now, his primary job (at least the one that doesn't pay the bills) is to indoctrinate his daughter with his love of Disney while at the same time convincing his wife to move to Orlando so he can become a tour guide in the parks. He can also be found indulging in his nerdy side (both Disney related and otherwise) at nerdintherealworld.wordpress.com.

    Disney are doing a fine job with Marvel. They are pushing it in the right direction which is what it needed. They have exposed it to everyone and everyone is enjoying it. Im guessing that some comic book experts will be cringing that Disney have the right and will more then likely not like the way they are taking it. They do have to realise that change isn’t always bad.
    As for the infinity rumour, I hope they do release Marvel and Star Wars sets. The disney catalogue is vast so hopefully there will be more releases from the whole of Disney. A villains is a must.
