At what point does Marvel's universe building go from being an integral part of a given film's storyline to a box they have check with each movie churned out by the studio? Some would argue it's reached that point already, and the following intel suggests Kevin Feige and co. are cramming characters into spaces they don't necessarily need to be in.

At what point does Marvel's universe building go from being an integral part of a given film's storyline to a box they have check with each movie churned out by the studio? Some would argue it's reached that point already, and the following intel suggests Kevin Feige and co. are cramming characters into spaces they don't necessarily need to be in.

Latino Review reports that in early drafts of "Ant-Man," a prologue sequence finds Hank Pym consorting with Howard Stark, Peggy Carter, Armin Zola and a young Alexander Pierce (in case you forgot, he was the bland villain from "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" played by Robert Redford). Hooray? Latino Review believes this scene will make its way to the final cut, and with the "Agent Carter" tv series coming up, it's a pretty good guess, because it's an easy to way to keep endlessly threading together every single solitary Marvel project.

In hilarious and ridiculous related news, Vulture reports that Katee Sackhoff had to deny a rumor she started herself, suggesting she might be in a Marvel movie, with fans wishing/guessing she would be playing Ms. Marvel in "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron." Sorry, not happening.

Lastly, Yahoo has dropped the Baby Groot sequence from "Guardians Of The Galaxy" online because ZOMG SO CUTE, along with a batch of new images (via Flickering Myth) from the movie, mostly from the final third, including a pic of Howard The Duck. Check it all out below.
