MY THOUGHTS

NERDGASM! Even though these haven’t been officially set in stone by Marvel or Disney, I think this is a pretty good idea of what we can expect. I’m so excited about these features! I think I’m one of the only people in the world who actually listens to the director’s commentary. I’m also really looking forward to the “A Visual Journey” and “Assembling the Ultimate Team” featurettes. I love seeing how a director takes what is on a comic book page and translates it on to the big screen. And seeing how director Joss Whedon’s original cut was over three hours long, the deleted scenes are a given. The only downside is that September 25th feels SO FAR AWAY!! Who wants to go to France on my birthday?

YOUR TURN

So what do you think Item 47 is? Is it a finale for S.H.I.E.L.D.’s resident badass, Agent Coulson? Is it the gun S.H.I.E.L.D. constructed from the technology of the Destroyer from Thor? Or could it be a snippet about Hank Pym a.k.a. Ant-Man, Marvel’s next project set to start filming later this year? Let me know what your theories are in the comments below.
