Marvel's making like a kid loaded with candy, aren't they? Their slate takes them all the way to 2015's double-fisting of "The Avengers 2" on May 1st and "Ant-Man" that November 6th. Speaking to MTV recently, Feige revealed that the Edgar Wright-directed "Ant-Man," which will have been in development for eleven years by the time the film hits the screens, will launch what the company considers "Phase Three."

Remember Marvel’s Power Pack? Well, this writer doesn’t, but they were one of the second tier Marvel properties being mooted for a small-budget big-screen adaptation a couple years ago. They were among characters like Luke Cage, Dr. Strange, Iron Fist, et al. (none of which have yet come to pass), but when the rumor first circled, we highlighted Power Pack as the property that likely had the most crossover appeal thanks to its pre-teen X-Men style set-up.

Back in September, Marvel was getting ready to drop an elaborate box set, including all the Phase One films, housed in a fancy briefcase featuring a replica of the Tesseract (see above). But there was a small problem. The design of the briefcase was copyrighted by a German luggage company and the paperwork and rights hadn't been cleared by the comic company for use in this kind of packaging. The result was a delay on the set, and lots of unhappy faces this Christmas. But, there is a silver lining -- the set is now back on track and will feature even more for fans.

Sean Howe's 'Marvel Comics: The Untold Story' & The 5 Most Tantalizing Marvel Movie What-Ifs

Sean Howe's brilliant new book, "Marvel Comics: The Untold Story," is a fascinating history of the House of Ideas, from its humble beginnings to its place as a multimedia pop culture juggernaut (and everything in between). What makes Howe's book so fascinating (and such a compulsively un-put-down-able read) is how human it is. He's interested in characters, but not the kind that fly or shoot lasers out of their eyes. And as the book rolls along, it becomes clear that Howe is less interested in the Marvel that is currently nestled within the Disney conglomerate and pumping out billion dollar spectacles like this summer's "The Avengers," than in the hardscrabble, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants operation that made it so impactful in the first place. Along the way, too, it tells the story of Stan Lee, who moved away from the characters he created and the format he originally conceived and more obsessed with Hollywood and translating those heroes to the big screen. What follows is the most fascinating, bizarre, and out-there possibilities of the one-time cinematic Marvel Universe.

While ever hopeful geeks crossed their fingers that "Ant-Man" could be shot in time for a 2014 release, possibly with lensing to begin once "Thor 2" wrapped, that won't be the case. But the good news is that the film does have a release date, so let three years of speculation begin.

Despite the fact that “The Avengers 2” doesn’t even have a script and that Marvel hasn’t completely nailed down their Phase 2 plans yet, there are already rumors about the new characters that would appear in the film, and even about who will play them. So grab some salt and take a seat while we talk about stuff that’s not even close to happening.

Earlier this summer, we at The Playlist launched our Playlist podcast series. In our second episode, we conversed about Warner Bros.' plans for the Justice League, and of course, discussed the second phase of the Marvel cinematic universe. During our conversation we dropped some fun Marvel rumors that had come across our desk this summer (Marvel never verifies, so it tends to be speculative at best) and one of the more fascinating grapevine dispatches we heard was that Dr. Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel universe, would be a big part of "Thor: The Dark World" (then simply called "Thor 2").

With many budgets routinely crossing the $150 million threshold, studios keep a close eye on their tentpoles, making sure the films hit that four-quadrant sweet spot with nothing, not a blemish, to stop them. Every once in awhile, however, certain details are overlooked and the detail in the case of Marvel’s blockbuster team-up film “The Avengers” will block the release of the Blu-ray box set of Phase One of their cinematic universe.

Anyone with even a modicum of interest in putting comic books to film in a true and worthwhile way probably has breathed a few sighs of relief over the past few weeks. First, when “The Avengers” mastermind Joss Whedon was announced as taking the director’s seat on that film’s sequel, then when he was pretty much anointed the king of Marveland as they put the post-“The Avengers” film and television landscape in his hands, and then finally just this past week it was announced Whedon would be heading up a series for ABC based on the high-flying “S.H.I.E.L.D.” organization. So yeah, it’s a pretty good time to see the panels of your favorite comic come to life.
