Marvel’s Thanos is gecast


Marvel studiobaas Kevin Feige sprak over enkele van de aankomende projecten, zoals Guardians of the Galaxy en de schurk Thanos. Daarnaast ging hij in op de connectie tussen Ant-Man en Avengers: Age of Ultron. Feige bevestigde dat Thanos voor zou komen in Guardians of the Galaxy. Zo zei hij:

“There is an actor. I’m not sure we want to announce it yet.”

Verder liet Feige weten dat Ant-Man een belangrijke rol zal spelen in het Marvel Cinematic Universe:

“It was two things – a story Edgar wanted to tell that we’ll see with Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd, and now we’re 11 films in, it’s looking at the characters we’ve already introduced who already have the technology and the brains to do…certain things [laughs]. We changed, frankly, some of the MCU to accommodate this version of ‘Ant-Man.’ Knowing what we wanted to do with Edgar and with ‘Ant-Man,’ going years and years back, helped to dictate what we did with the roster for ‘Avengers’ the first time. It was a bit of both in terms of his idea for the ‘Ant-Man’ story influencing the birth of the MCU in the early films leading up to ‘Avengers.’”

Het lijkt er verder op dat Ant-Man vooral gaat over Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) en niet Hank Pym (Michael Douglas):

“Look at that origin of the petty crook who comes into contact with a suit and does his best to make good, and then look at someone like Paul Rudd, who can do slightly unsavoury things like break into people’s houses and still be charming and who you root for and whose redemption you will find satisfaction in.”

Tot slot vertelde Feige nog iets over de releasedatum van zowel Batman v Superman als Captain America 3:

“We had the flag there first. What other people do and where has always been less of our concern. It’s about keeping our head down and doing what we would believe would be cool for an audience to see.”
