Marvel’s head honcho Kevin Feige has been chatting to our mates at
magazine about what’s in store for
in the comic giant’s cinematic universe.
Inside issue 233, Feige chats in-depth about the studio’s forthcoming plans and ambitions, following on from the staggering success of The Avengers .
Here’s a sneak peek at what he had to say:
“ The Thor film and the Guardians Of The Galaxy film certainly are cosmic. Guardians and Thor will take the brunt of the cosmic side of the universe, particularly Guardians , which is 95 per cent in space. I think Iron Man 3 shows the other side of Phase Two, which is delving deeper into the characters.
“What’s exciting to me about [ Captain America 2 ] - sort of about Iron Man 3 too if you look at it - is it’s tonally almost like a different genre. Shane Black’s described Iron Man 3 as a Tom Clancy sort of political thriller, which I like a lot. We hired our directors on Cap because they loved our explanation that we really want to make a ’70s political thriller masquerading as a big superhero movie.”
Feige went on to describe Guardians as “much more of a standalone film… The Avengers are not involved with what’s happening out there at this time.”
The first film in Phase Two, Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 , opens in the UK on 25 April 2013.
