It has been quite a week for J.J. Abrams, on top of landing the next Star Wars movie, the producer/director has received a pilot order for a "robot cops" show with Fox, and mere hours ago received the Norman Lear Achievement Award for his work on television at the Producer's Guild Awards.

Marvel do not like to rest on their laurels. Phase One was a formidable task; introducing movie audiences to Iron Man, Thor and Captain America and then bringing them all together with a renewed Incredible Hulk for the first ever big screen superhero crossover. They somehow pulled it off, The Avengers is one of the biggest movies of all time, and now there is no stopping them.
Phase Two begins this summer with Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World, continuing next year with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy, a fairly out-there cosmic action movie by Slither-director James Gunn. This will culminate in 2015 with the release of The Avengers 2. Where next for Marvel's movie master plan?

A short video has been released from the set of Mad Max: Fury Road, the new installment of the 35-year-old franchise directed by George Miller. It contains no characters, dialogue or spoilers, or come to mention it, any sign of Miller, Tom Hardy, Nicholas Hoult or the rest of the crew. It does, however, do everything it needs to do to sell the film to fans of the first trilogy (especially The Road Warrior). It has vehicles. And cameras on vehicles filming vehicles.
