Yesterday, there was a panel discussion with the producers of the Marvel movies where talked about Iron Man 2 and the tentative upcoming schedule for more in the Marvel line.
As we already know, they’re halfway done with shooting, and almost all of the dialogue is finished being shot, with the next six weeks dedicated to action. Earlier today I posted a brief update from Mickey Rourke, and while Feige talked highly of Rourke and Rockwell’s involvement as villains, he also dropped an interesting hint about Scarlett Johansson. He said her character has “two sides” – her entrance is as an assistant to Tony Stark, but she is later revealed to be a character named Black Widow. Is this a subtle bit of confirmation that her character stays true to the comics and eventually betrays Stark? I think so.
We already know that Iron Man 2 is up next, then Thor, then Captain America, then The Avengers in the summer of 2012. Feige said that they’re “ordered this way for a reason.” And confirmed that Samuel Jackson and Scarlett Johansson as well as Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston are signed on for multiple movies or “multiple franchises.”
