d) Which one is considered "the new IP" for 2016 --- GOTG ("new" in 2014) or Avengers ("new" in 2012)? and
e) Where would Vin Diesel fit into this? Thanos? HELL no. If he was playing Thanos, he wouldn't be voice-acting Groot in the same damn movie next year, and we'd already have PLENTY of media hype announcing that Vin was, in fact, cast as the Mad Titan. Thanos shows up next year in GOTG, and it sure as hell isn't going to be Vin Diesel in that role. 110% guaranteed.

There's a lot of possibilities for what Vin has been talking about when he discusses being in a new Marvel IP in 2016, and being part of a merging of brands of sorts way, way down the road; but "merging" existing Marvel Studios titles that will already be old news by 2016 is most definitely NOT what he's talking about. I swear, some people don't bother reading enough into things.


...They move like slick cotton on oil.
