There are a couple of Marvel Movie rumors today courtesy of MTV Splash Page. So please take them as that, but let’s have a little fun with them meanwhile. First up, thanks to a cryptic tweet from the upcoming Ant-Man movie director Edgar Wright, who says, “Aside from ‘The World’s End’, I directed one shot in another summer movie. But which? #IProbablyWillNotTell.” Followed shortly afterwards by another tweet that said, “Yeah. Some of you got it right.” Certainly some guessed Ant-Man, and even though Wright never said specifically which one, let’s assume it is that.
With Iron Man 3 about to arrive in theaters in just a short few weeks now, we could assume that they did shoot an Ant-Man clip for during or after the credits like they do in most of the Marvel movies. It would definitely be plausible and a lot of fun if they did. I know I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Ant-Man appears briefly at the end. Guess we’ll find out on May 3rd when Iron Man 3 arrives in theaters. (Source: MTV Splash Page)
And the second rumor started by MTV Splash Page is that we could see Black Panther in Avengers 2. Yesterday, actor Morris Chestnut tweeted “[i]t’s time to get familiar with the Black Panther character!” But the tweet has since been deleted. Then today, Chestnut tweeted again some interesting news, “Not final. #BlackPanther may be in #avengers2 first.” So either he has some wishful thinking or he knows something that Marvel has not let out of the bag yet. As far as we know, he hasn’t been cast for the role yet, so he could just be preparing to read for a potential casting. But it still sounds like he knows something the rest of us don’t. And I would think Black Panther would be a part of The Avengers before going solo in a movie. (Source: MTV Splash Page)
