You’re in my world, now I’m in yours. Crossing over among movies in the world of Marvel seems to be as easy as slicing through a jet plane with your super strong shield.

The much-anticipated premiere of Captain America: The Winter Solider in Hollywood Thursday at the El Captain Theatre came with the blocking of streets, the screaming of fans and a nearly complete turn out of the cast.

'Avengers 2': Let's cast supervillain Ultron!

Tom Hiddleston confirmed Monday that he will not return as the God of Mischief Loki in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the possible actor behind the sequel’s title antagonist remains shrouded in secrecy.

The final title card in Iron Man 3 declared, “Tony Stark Will Return.” It’s a reassuring promise (and one that shows that the character’s not-so-secret identity has gained just as much popularity as his superhero alter ego). But it’s not necessarily a guarantee that Robert Downey Jr. will also return.

The massive opening weekend for Iron Man 3 was immediately followed by uncertainty about Downey’s future in the franchise. With the completion of the third installment in the trilogy about the Armored Avenger, Downey fulfilled his contractual obligations to play the character.
