Specifically, this is “Marvel Movie News That Is Probable But By No Means Certain,” so take it all with a grain of salt.
? Everyone expects Marvel to announce at SDCC that they’ll be releasing Guardians of the Galaxy as a major motion picture in 2014. Dear DC: If Marvel gets Rocket Raccoon in a movie before you make either Wonder Woman or Justice League, you have fucking failed. (Via Comic Book Resources)
? Edgar Wright has directed a test reel for his Ant-Man movie. Whether this means he’s finally going to make the movie or not, who knows, but it’s certainly a step in the “Wright” direction. HAW. Also, rumor is that Wright will shoot the Ant-Man-related post-credits scene for Iron Man 3, which if true means he kind of has to make Ant-Man at that point. (Via /Film)
? Iron Man 3 co-screenwriter says Ben Kingsley will be playing a Mandarin-type character, but not the Mandarin. Seeing as the original Mandarin was basically a less subtle Fu Manchu stereotype, I feel this is a smart move. (Via Nerd Bastards)
