‘Age of Ultron’ Concept Art, Ant Man, and Assembling a Universe

Instead of a new Agents of SHIELD, Marvel decided to give fans a taste of how they have built their cinematic universe. Starting with the first Iron Man and ending with concept art of future projects, the special spanned all of Marvel’s forays into live action eyegasms. I watched the special along with most of twitter (check out the #MarvelAssemble hashtag to see how the #blerd community geeked out about it) and it managed to excite me even more about the MCU.

It is no secret that I would rather pick up a Batman comic then anything with Marvel stamped on it, but nothing comes close to the MCU with their fantastic movies that are all connected. In my opinion, this is the single greatest movie event of all time. There are three phases planned with the movies being well into the second Phase. That is a lot of interconnected movies, shorts, and television shows.

The most exciting revelation last night was new concept footage of Avengers 2: Age of Ultron which is slated to hit theatres next year. Also, brief shots of Ant Man, the first movie in Phase 3.
