Kevin Feige Talks Hulk, Hawkeye, And Captain Marvel
While we’ve been getting some great info from the Captain America: The Winter Soldier press junket, we’ve also been getting some nice tidbits about upcoming Marvel films. Head honcho Kevin Feige has been teasing a lot of things coming up in the remainder of Phase Two and a few things we can expect in Phase 3, but now we have some news about three characters fans have been wanting to see done justice on the silver screen.
Hawkeye got the short end of the stick in The Avengers He was mind controlled for the majority of the film, and the last half didn’t give him much time to develop his character beyond his amazing bow skills. Jeremy Renner even said he didn’t get to do what he signed up for. On the other side of the coin, Hulk has gotten a lot of screen time but in recent years we haven’t seen much of him. With neither character making a Phase 2 appearance prior to Avengers: Age of Ultron, they’re going to have to get a lot of big moments to make up for their absence. Kevin Feige said the duo will indeed get their time to shine. Speaking with JoBlo, Feige answered the question about whether or not we’ll see a Hulk movie:
It’s a good question. I would love to do that with Mark Ruffalo. But part of the fun of AGE OF ULTRON was saying, you’ve seen another IRON MAN adventure before, you see another THOR adventure and another CAP adventure, but we haven’t seen the Green Goliath again. So that was important in the characters you haven’t seen – Hulk being one of them and Hawkeye being one of them – ULTRON will make up for it. They have very big parts in AGE OF ULTRON.
Joss Whedon had a lot of characters to juggle in Avengers, he’ll have even more in Age of Ultron, so he’ll have to do some real heavy lifting to get Hawkeye and Hulk their marquee moments. If anyone can do it, I’m sure it’s Joss Whedon.
One character who would be a new arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that has been getting a lot of buzz in Captain/Ms. Marvel. Katee Sackhoff has expressed interest in playing the role, and several actresses are the focus of fan campaigns for the role, but we’ve not heard anything official about whether or not she’ll pop up in the near future. Feige talked about diversity with BadassDigest and how they want to expand their minority and female characters even further in the future. When asked specifically about Captain Marvel, Feige teased “We’ve talked a lot about [Captain Marvel]. I think that would be very cool.” Very few things that Feige finds “cool don’t end up making it into the movies at one point or another. We’ll just have to wait and see how things unfold, but Hawekey, Hulk, and maybe even Captain Marvel have bright futures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What do you think about Feige’s comments?
