The Beat is reporting LIVE! from the Marvel Movie Press Conference! So far we’ve been sitting in a room making jokes about our outlets for over an hour! But we’re told the director of CAPTAIN AMERICA will show up any minute now and our lives will change.
Meanwhile in Hall H, Marvel gathered the casts of Captain America 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy and brought out Joss Whedon to reveal Marvel AVENGERS 2: THE AGE OF ULTRON for Summer 2015.
What, no Thanos? Or not yet?
Karen Gillan plays Nebula and shaved her head Natalie Portman style:
Reports from hall H have people cheering, swooning and speaking in tongues over the goings on there as the likes of Frank Grillo and Colbie Smulders are brought out.
Meanwhile we’re working on some potential quotes;
“Working with John C. Reilly I have learned so much.”
“When we heard we were directing Captain America we were thrilled.”
“We have so much respect for the source material.”
“We were nervous at first but the fan response has been amazing.”
Update: Okay so we went a little stir crazy while waiting but eventually the stars and directors of Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy appeared and answered questions in a far more thoughtful and articulate manner than we were teasing about. We’ll have some more quotes in a bit but our favorite line was when GotG director James Gunn explained that Benecio del Toro had once told him “I was the first kid in my neighborhood to own an alligator,” which Gunn said was one of his “five favorite sentences ever.” As you do.
The voices for Rocket Raccoon and Groot were not revealed.
Here are some logos and concept art that was released:
