Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige spoke with Collider after The Avengers premiere Wednesday and spoke about what Marvel has coming up over the next few years.
Collider has had some very in-depth interviews with Feige over the past months, so the focus for this one was the sequels and new films Marvel has coming out between now and 2016. They were kind enough to have bullet pointed highlights, which can be seen broken up into their respective categories below. This just scratches the surface of some of what Feige said. You can read or listen to the interview in it’s entirety by clicking here.
• They’re still figuring out how much period flashbacks to include in Captain America 2.
• The primary story of Captain America 2 will be Steve Rogers figuring out his place in the world. For the time-being, he’ll be staying with S.H.I.E.L.D.
• Filming on Thor 2 begins in three months in London and it picks up where the first film left off in terms of Jane and Odin.
• Thor 2 also addresses what’s been happening in the nine realms with the Asgardians unable to use the Bifrost.
• Loki has a part in Thor 2, but there will be a different, big villain.
• The crux of Thor 2 is continuing the dynamic between Thor and Jane, as well as the relationship between Thor and Odin. All the cast is returning.
• Iron Man 3 starts filming in five weeks in North Carolina.
• When approaching Iron Man 3, their gut instinct was to not make it be a pseudo-Avengers 2. It’s a full-on Tony Stark movie.
• Iron Man 3 is inspired by the first half of Iron Man 1 in that they’re metaphorically putting Tony back in the cave. He’s stripped of everything, back against a wall, and has nothing but his intelligence to get him out.
Avengers 2 And Other Projects
• He’s seen an unfinished version of The Amazing Spider-Man and says it is excellent and should quiet concerns over the idea of rebooting the franchise.
• They have an option for Whedon to direct The Avengers 2 when and if the time comes.
• There are currently no plans to do a new Hulk movie with Mark Ruffalo.
• They should announce by Comic-Con or before what’s coming out in May 2014.
• Zak Penn did not write a Doctor Strange movie.
• Feige says, “depending on what Edgar Wright films for us” circumstances could possibly force them to make three films in one year.
Also interesting, a recent tweet by Edgar Wright had many fans speculating that he had filmed some sort of Ant-Man segment for a possible post-credits Avengers scene. Feige denied this, but he went on to say that we should be paying attention to Wright’s tweets over the coming months. It sounds like that Ant-Man movie may be, in reality, closer than it has been in the several years Wright’s been working on it.
