Kevin Feige has been talking about Marvel’s long-term plans, and claims that the studio has films mapped out for as far away as 2021.
With Phase 2 now well underway, the Studio President has been looking a little further down the track, and suggests that there are plenty of surprises in the pipeline.
“Five years ago, looking at our plan, we knew that if Avengers was going to work, the movies had to stand alone,” says Feige. “Now we have to prove to the studio that we’re more than just these five characters, these five franchises.”
With three untitled movies slated to arrive in 2016 and 2017, we could see that expansion happen in the next couple of years, while the Marvel landscape could be entirely different by 2021.
“I could arguably say what we’re planning for the year 2021,” says Feige. “Will that happen? I don’t know. But what we planned for 2015 in 2006 is happening.”
Marvel’s next offering will be Thor: The Dark World which will open on 8 November 2013.
