-- Speaking to Film Journal about the upcoming Marvel movies, Marvel chief Kevin Feige plugged in a status update on The Avengers (which is about five weeks into production), as well as elaborated more on how Iron Man 3 will fit into the Marvel continuity world, post-Avengers. Two key quotes below ...
On The Avengers: "We’re in the fifth week of production on The Avengers and all of the actors have been very impressed with him. They all carry their own movies and I think everyone was worried about who would get the short end of the stick. But no one does because they’re all there servicing this larger story. The stuff we’ve shot is cutting together spectacularly and it’s just the character interactions that we’ve done so far—we haven’t shot much of the action sequences yet. I think the end result is going to feel very, very satisfying.”
On Iron Man 3: "Audiences will see that Tony Stark is going back into his own world. There will be acknowledgements to the events of The Avengers and the character journey he took there, but he’s not going to be having tea with Thor and calling Nick Fury every five minutes.” [Film Journal]

Guess we'll see. [Geek Tyrant]
