Kevin Feige Talks Marvel Future: Ant-Man And A Possible Marvel Civil War
Kevin Feige is out an about lately, talking about The Avengers and teasing us all about what the future holds for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Feige talked with Hey U Guys at the European premiere of The Avengers and updated us yet again on Ant-Man’s progress. The Ant-Man movie has been development under Edgar Wright for several years:
It’s as close as it’s ever been. Edgar is getting excited to get behind the camera again and start some advanced prep work for Ant-Man…We are going to take some forward steps in a few months that will bring it closer than ever. In terms of release date, I don’t know.
Feige told us we may want to pay attention to Wright’s tweets in the coming months. He also went on to discuss who holds characters like Qicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Fox owns the X-Men and could use them in their films, but they are also Avengers so Marvel could use them as well. He said it was a grey area. Another “grey area” character according to Feige was the Skrulls. Hey U Guys had a pretty extensive interview, and you can watch the whole thing below.
Also, some very interesting things happened when Feige and Mark Ruffalo went to an Apple store event earlier today. Assemble Live was live tweeting some of the questions that were asked. They hyped Avengers, but these few tidbits are promising. Feige usually teases us to no end, but what he says usually has some truth in it. The first post has some huge implications. Here it is as they tweeted:
- Kevin’ just said Avengers 3 might be a good movie for the Civil War story line
- Ooo an Antman question for Kevin “I do think this summer we’ll see some forward momentum with that”
- Kevin’s been asked about Luke Cage and Black Panther “I’d love to bring both of them to the screen its just a matter of when”
- “Part of the fun of a continuing Avengers story would be to introduce new characters every time” Kevin Feige
- Kevin has confirmed that #TheHulk will not be in Iron Man 3
- Kevin hasn’t dismissed the idea that working with Disney might mean we’ll see an animated Marvel film
