The sequel to The Avengers will be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, centering around the robotic villain from the comics. This led to questions about Hank Pym of course, which Joss Whedon addressed. “We don’t have to have him. It works very simply — this is Marvel cinema, not Marvel comics. One thing Kevin Feige has a genius for is knowing what to hold onto and what to let go of. You can invoke the feeling you had and play with the characters you love and remain true to the needs of the film.”

The Marvel panel also showed insane footage from Guardians of the Galaxy, which only began shooting a couple of weeks ago. They had footage of a jail break, a shirtless Starlord, and yes, a talking raccoon. For Thor: The Dark World, Tom Hiddleston took the stage as Loki and turned the crowd into his own army. »
