Watch The Marvel Phase Two Preview Included On The New Box Set
Do you happen to have a fat inheritance, or maybe a birthday coming up and a very, very loving relative who understands your superhero obsession? Then maybe you're now the proud owner of Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One -- Avengers Assemble, the massive box set containing all the Marvel films that led up to last year's The Avengers. You can still buy the set on Amazon for a hefty $150, but to get a glimpse at what's inside without shelling out anything, you can also check out the video above.
It contains what's become familiar chatter from Marvel President Kevin Feige, talking about how he and the directors of all the Phase One films have been coordinating to set up a giant universe, and how Iron Man 3 marks the start of Phase Two. The footage contained here is mostly familiar from previous trailers, showing Tony Stark coming face to face with an Iron Man suit that contains somebody else (or is self-propelled entirely). But it does invite us to start wondering once again just where Iron Man 3 will leave us to start setting up Marvel's giant Phase Two, and how the heading toward production Avengers 2 will propel things into an even bigger Phase Three.
Just think of Joss Whedon's reaction to seeing the end of Iron Man 3: "What am I supposed to do now? What am I going to do in Avengers 2?" It's hard to know just how yet, but Iron Man 3 will throw down the gauntlet for what's to come in Marvel's future. Maybe you really do owe it to yourself to catch up on all of Phase One before Iron Man 3 changes everything in May.
