Alan Taylor Contradicts Kevin Feige Regarding Marvel Directorial Control

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:21181:]]

It’s long been said that Marvel Studios controls and has more say so over their movies than the directors working on the films.

There has been reported issues with Jon Favreau and the Iron Man movies, which also includes Mickey Rourke butting heads with Marvel over his character, Whiplash, in Iron Man 2.

We can also most recently point to The Avengers: Age Of Ultron as Joss Whedon let it be known lots of scenes were cut from the movie at the request of Marvel, with most notably being Tom Hiddleston’s scene. Marvel even said Hiddleston wasn’t available for Avengers 2, but when Whedon spoke with Hiddleston, Hiddleston stated he was all up for it.

We can also throw in the Edgar Wright Ant-Man situation as Marvel brought a new director on board with Peyton Reed reportedly because Wright’s version wasn’t as “connected” to the Marvel Universe and didn’t feature “Avengers.”

Now the latest is regarding comments made by Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige in regards to WB’s Greg Silverman stating that Warner Bros. allows directors to fullfill their visions, while meaning Marvel does not, and comments made by Thor 2 director Alan Taylor.

Here’s the Q&A with Feige via THR:

Warner Bros.’ Greg Silverman told THR that the difference between the DC/Warners movies and Marvel movies is that Warners allows directors to fulfill their visions. How do you respond?

FEIGE My response is: Look at the movies. Iron Man and Iron Man 2 are as Jon Favreau films as you can see. Kenneth Branagh has his stamp all over ThorCaptain America: First Avenger is very much a Joe Johnston film. The greatest example of that, look at Guardians of the Galaxy withJames Gunn. And the one I always point out is Avengers. We knew the general structure when we sat down with Joss [Whedon]. But I don’t want you to think we gave him a story. We gave him a “Here’s where we think the movie should start, here’s where we think this character should come into it; it would be fun if something like this happened in the middle and in the end a hole opens up and aliens pour out into Manhattan.” So arguably, there were many pieces in place, and yet now that everyone has seen the movie, it’s completely a Joss Whedon film. He was able to take all the elements that were handed to him – that were studio-imposed, if you want to look at it that way – and make it his own. We wouldn’t have hired any of the filmmakers we’ve hired if we just wanted somebody who would do what we say.

Alan Taylor, while doing press for his latest movie Terminator: Genisys, contradicts Feige’s statements about working on Thor 2. While Taylor does say Marvel did give him freedom to direct the movie; however, when all the footage was completed, Taylor says Marvel wouldn’t let him go with his version of Thor 2.

Via UpRoxx:

When I spoke to you for Thor: The Dark World, I got the underlying tone that it wasn’t the greatest experience for you making that movie.

[Terminator: Genisys and Thor: The Dark World] were very different. I’ve done two and I’ve learned that you don’t make a $170 million movie with someone else’s money and not have to collaborate a lot. The Marvel experience was particularly wrenching because I was sort of given absolute freedom while we were shooting, and then in post it turned into a different movie. So, that is something I hope never to repeat and don’t wish upon anybody else. This was not like that. The story we started telling is essentially the story we finished and are bringing out into the world. But there was a lot of collaboration, as there is going to be on something this big.

With Thor: The Dark World, I did get the impression you were promoting a movie that you didn’t think was the movie you made.

[Laughs] I’m hoping I wasn’t that candid?

I was reading in-between the lines.

Okay, well, you’re probably good at reading body language over the phone. I’m not good at hiding stuff like that.

You seem happier this time.

The finished movie has a lot more in common with what we started with, so that’s great. The experience of making it with this cast, shooting in New Orleans, was quite fun, despite the grueling schedule. But, yeah, if we were to have drinks somewhere, I have plenty to complain about. We’ll do that next time.

Back while promoting Thor 2, Taylor also told HP the following about problems with Marvel, which sounds like Thor 2 was meant to have more action from the start.

Though, there’s a lot of exposition at the beginning. But after about 45 minutes, it really comes together.

Yeah, I think that is sort of the structure that was found in post. The early versions of the movie that I have tremendous affection for, there was a lot less exposition up front. And it was sort of… kind of discovered it along the way — and the decision was made. It’s a common dynamic, I think, to sort of front-load everything you need to know so that, precisely, the audience can sort of relax and have fun for the latter part. That was sort of the tug-of-war during post.

Marvel Phase 2 Contains Same Star Wars Easter Eggs

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:20174:]]

It seems just about everyone missed this one as Kevin Feige has let it be known he included the same Star Wars Easter Egg in each of the Marvel Phase 2 movies.

Speaking with CinemaBlend, Feige said he is a big Star Wars fan and offered:

So is this a spoiler for Ant-Man… not really. I’m obsessed with Star Wars. Who’s not? I’m 40 years old. I’m in the movie business. I went to USC. So I’m obsessed with Star Wars – and it didn’t start out as intentional, but it became intentional, including that beat that you referenced. It sort of happens in every Star Wars movie, but I was sort of looking at it, ‘Okay, is Phase Two our Empire Strikes Back?’ Not really, but tonally things are a little different. Somebody gets their arm cut off in every Phase Two movie. Every single one.

Regarding the Easter Eggs:

Iron Man 3 featured Guy Pearce’s character, Aldrich Killian, getting his arm cut off by Tony Stark when he heats up Iron Man’s suit and the end of the movie.

Thor 2 features Thor getting his arm “cut off” by Loki.

Captain America 2 features a flashback where Bucky had his own arm cut off when he fell from the train in Captain America: The First Avenger.

James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy also had a similar Star Wars Easter Egg with Gamora cutting Groot’s arm off (this might be the enigmatic Easter Egg Gunn keeps referring to that he says everyone missed).

Those are the Star Wars Easter Eggs known to date as The Avengers 2 is yet to be released – so be on the look out for someone getting their arm cut off just like Luke Skywalker from Empire Strikes Back.

Thor 2’s Patty Jenkins To Direct Wonder Woman

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:20074:]]

Monday saw Michelle MacLaren drop out from directing the Wonder Woman due to creative differences, and now it’s learned Patty Jenkins has been brought on board to take over.

Patty Jenkins was at one time lined up to direct Thor 2, but in similar circumstances, left the Marvel movie over creative differences.

THR reports Jenkins has closed the deal for Wonder Woman with Warner Bros.

It’s said WB and Jenkins need to movie pretty fast to keep up with the 2017 Wonder Woman release date. As far as the script goes, it was previously said that MacLaren was heavily involved in its shaping, so it remains to be seen whether or not Jenkins will need to retool the script or even start over from scratch.

Jenkins saw directorial success with her debut movie starring Charlize Theron on Monsters and has done episodes of the AMC hit series The Killing.

Gal Gadot will star as Wonder Woman and be featured in the May 2016 Batman Vs. Superman.

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. To Tie In To The Avengers 2

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:18229:]]

In a no-brainer, it’s learned that The Avengers 2 will tie in to Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Specifics weren’t given, but SHIELD executive producer Jed Whedon told EW.com, “The Avengers is the big tent that all the franchises play under. Obviously, we’re included in that.”

SHIELD previously tied into Captain America 2 as well as Thor 2, and indirectly with Guardians of the Galaxy as the blue alien in SHIELD is the same race as Ronan.

“I don’t think any movie has the potential to impact us in the way that Captain America 2 did,” executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen added, “but there will be connections.” 

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. mid-season finale airs tonight on ABC at 9pm ET.

“The Avengers: Age Of Ultron” hits May 1, 2015 directed by Joss Whedon starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, Paul Bettany as Vision, with James Spader as Ultron.

Synopsis:

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Watch The Tom Hiddleston Loki Movie

While Marvel Studios may not be putting out a Loki movie anytime soon, a fan has gone and created the following film starring Tom Hiddleston as Thor’s trickster brother.

The Loki movie below uses footage from Thor, The Avengers and Thor 2.

It’s not presently known when Loki will next make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Tom Hiddleston has stated on a few occasions that Loki will not be in The Avengers 2. Thor 3 is currently being written, so more than likely he’ll be appearing there.

Tom Hiddleston currently has four movies in development including Crimson Peak, which hits October 16, 2015.

James Gunn Confirms Adam Warlock’s Cocoon For Guardians of the Galaxy & Thor 2

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:16897:]]

As many have speculated, the cocoon in the Thor 2 post-credit scene and in Guardians of the Galaxy as part of The Collector’s collection is Adam Warlock.

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn confirmed the news to Empire Online in a “spoiler” podcast where Gunn gave a rundown of the items featured in the collection.

Note: bold my emphasis:

“Many people may look up to the right of The Collector. As we first see The Collector, we push in on him and you will see a certain duck named Howard that turns to look at the group. That’s one of my favorite little things. The background there is the Slither creatures from my movie Slither behind The Collector; those guys are pretty obvious. You have Adam Warlock’s cocoon. You have also sorts of characters from other Marvel movies. The Dark Elf back there, who is played by Doug Jones, who is one of our stunt guys that had the Dark Elf make-up on. So you had a lot of different guys in the background.”

Gunn also adds that The Collector has more than one “museum,” with the one shown in Guardians of the Galaxy being the Knowhere “wing.”

Captain America 2 On Track To Break April Records: Compared To The Dark Knight

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:14781:]]

Captain America: The Winter Soldier looks to be on track for a $100 million opening weekend domestically with estimates ranging from around $90 million to even as high as $115 million.

Thursday night saw Captain America 2 net $10.2 million, which was about $3 million better than what Thor 2 did (Iron Man 3 took in $15.6 million with The Avengers $18.7 million).

Captain America 2 is also on track to break April records, currently held by Fast Five with an $86.2 million opening.

Typically, May has been the movie studio’s month of choice to kick off the Summer blockbuster season, but with next month having a host of blockbuster debuts (Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Godzilla, Maleficient), it looks as if Marvel Studios made the right choice going with Captain America 2 a month early. Perhaps it will set a new trend.

Word-of-mouth and reviews have been overwhelmingly positive for Captain America 2 as well. It’s reported the film has a solid “A” CinemaScore amongst audiences polled, and the movie review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes has Captain America 2 with a current 88% positive rating from reviewers and a 95% positive rating from fans. 

That 95% positive rating for Captain America 2 from fans is currently ahead of The Dark Knight (94%), which is long considered by the fanboys to be the best comic book movie adaptation to date.

Even hitting up Twitter we see posts mentioning comparisons to The Dark Knight as well.
