Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige on Upcoming Projects

by SuperHeroHype

Dec 11th, 2010

Updates from across the cinematic Marvel Universe

Hot on the heel's of the debut of the first official Thor trailer (as well as SHH's coverage of visiting the set), Hero Complex is hosting a live-chat with Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige.

Check back for updates as we'll be adding them as they come in:

• Iron Man will have a new set of armor for his appearance in The Avengers.

Feige writes: "Joss would kill me if I gave anything away, but I will say that the evolution you saw his armor take in IM2 will continue in The Avengers."

• There will be a reference to Thor's original alter-ego in the upcoming film.

Feige writes: "[P]eople looking for a reference to Don Blake in the Thor film will find one."

• With the rights to The Punisher regained, Marvel Studios is working on figuring out the property.

Feige writes: "Punisher's back in house, and various plans are in the works."

• Plans are still underway for an Iron Fist film. A script is currently in development.

Feige writes: "[A] very talented writer is currently working on a draft."

• Feige would love to see more female characters on the big screen and opened up the floor to suggestions. Miss Marvel was the most popular reply, but Feige named one of his own favorites.

Feige writes: "I love Jessica Jones. Good choice!"

• Asking chat members for their advice on who should play Luke Cage, Feige was met with a several suggestions for Isaiah Mustafa, best known for acting in the Old Spice commercials.

Feige writes: "Love the old spice guy!"

• Marvel has no current plans to produce short films with any characters, though they are open to exploring the idea.

Feige writes: "The shorts rumor was just a rumor, but we do like the idea."

• The Iron Fist script is based, in part on the Brian Michael Bendis / Matt Fraction series.

Feige writes: "[T]he movie is definitely inspired by that great run."

Ant-Man is still in development with Edgar Wright attached to the screenplay.

Feige writes: "Edgar was here a few days ago. He's already working on the next draft."

Moon Knight is one character for which a potential adaptation has been discussed at length.

Feige writes: "Moonknight's a challenging, but extremely interesting character. We've been discussing various versions of it for years."

• If you want to see the Thor trailer on the big screen, look for it in theaters beginning on December 17th.

Feige writes: "It should be playing in front of Tron on may screens, but maybe not all of them."

Black Panther is being worked on, but details are few.

Feige writes: "Things are in the works."

Kevin Feige Updates on Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and Potential Guardians of the Galaxy Sequels

SuperHeroHype

Jun 20, 2014

There's a lot of interesting quotes from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige coming out of Barcelona's CineEurope today as Total Film brings updates on Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and more. Most of it isn't anything that we haven't heard variations of in the past, but Feige does confirm that Doctor Strange will begin production in spring of 2015.

"[W]e think we'll be casting probably in the next month or two," he says, "and announcing an actor, and then we get into production in the spring of next year… Strange is very, very important, not just because it's an amazing character study, and a journey of a man who's gone from this very arrogant surgeon to somebody who is quite zen and literally keeps all of reality together on a daily basis… [T]here's a whole other side of the Marvel comics, which is that supernatural side – the interdimensional side of the Marvel universe, and Doctor Strange is, I believe, our entry point into that other realm, which has dozens of characters and storylines all of its own."

Feige similarly suggest that the intergalactic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe could continue on in Guardians of the Galaxy, although nothing is definitively planned yet on that front.

"That being said," he explains, "there are dozens and dozens of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' storylines. There's a group that came about in the '60s, were revamped again in the '80s and they changed into this incarnation that you see in this movie about eight or nine years ago. So there are a lot of other characters and worlds and stories. So should this film work, should the audience come out for this one, there are definitely places we can take it and we have ideas of where we'd like to go with it."

What is certain to continue on is Thanos, the cosmic despot who makes an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy.

"We learn a little bit more about him in this movie," Feige adds, "and he – and his band of followers – is the biggest piece of connective tissue that will eventually lead us back into Avengers films in the future."

Although it's hard to say with any certainty, Feige's plural when it comes to "Avengers films" is likely to raise some fan speculation.

Ant-Man, meanwhile, will still come out on July 17, 2015, despite the switch in directors.

"'Ant-Man' is a very important character for us," Feige says. "We like that people don't necessarily know what it is. We like that it sounds sort of strange when you first hear the notion of Ant-Man, or a hero that can shrink, but he's a very key Marvel character. He's a key Avenger. He's an important character we want to bring into our universe and Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and an amazing cast all set to start in August, we believe that we're on the road to the best version of Ant-Man that we could have."

Here, too, the use of the phrase "key Avenger" should trigger some additional (albeit, not necessarily true) theories about Paul Rudd's role in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel Studios Sets Dates for Five New Films!

SuperHeroHype

Jul 18, 2014

The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow today with the announcement of five new release dates, taking the big screen universe through 2019!

The studio already had mystery placeholders for films that will be released on July 8, 2016 (following a third Captain America film on May 6, 2016) and then another on May 5, 2017. Now they’ve earmarked July 28, 2017, November 3, 2017, July 6, 2018, November 2, 2018 and May 3, 2019.

We don’t know any titles yet (outside of Doctor Strange, which is likely the July 8, 2016 release), but it’s a good bet that that will change after next week’s Marvel Studios presentation at Comic-Con! Check back for our live-blog of the panel on Saturday, July 26 for full details!
