Already seven things worth the price of admission alone...
MTV News spoke with Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige about Iron Man 3 and future projects including The Avengers sequel.
Feige stated, "It's still early days, but I told [Whedon] after reading the first sketch outline he delivered — and there's a lot of work still to do, he has to sit down and turn this into a movie — but there are already seven things in there that are worth the price of admission alone."
Feige also talked about the early groundwork for The Avengers 2 to start in Iron Man 3, but fans won't know quite what to look for. On that Feige said: "I would say that the exercise of this film is very much standalone, more so than any 'Iron Man' film since the first one. But because we are in Phase Two and we're heading towards another 'Avengers' movie, there's certainly a road that's being paved — you just might not notice it. While you're driving on the road, not knowing where it's going, you might not realize that there are road signs and signals and lane changes that we're setting up now — they might not be readily apparent the first time you see the movie."
Regarding how Iron Man 3 will set up Avengers 2, Feige teased, "In this one, it has less to do with any sort of larger S.H.I.E.L.D. or cosmic overlay, but much more about Tony, his frame of mind, his viewpoint and the things he wants to pursue."
On the rest of Phase 2, Feige is excited, "It's pretty exciting to be this early out and already have things that I could pitch you on in a room — if you weren't a journalist who was going to print all of this — and you would go, 'Oh my god, that's going to be awesome,'" he said.
