If you think Marvel Studios hasn’t thought past ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ and ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ think again! Marvel has big plans for the next several years and will reportedly announce those plans sometime soon.
The studio has been keeping quiet about future projects, but the rumors have been swirling. Among the rumored plans are a ‘Black Widow’ movie, ‘The Eternals,’ and sequels to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ ‘Black Panther,’ and ‘Doctor Strange.’
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has said that a ‘Nova’ film has “immediate potential” but has given “no further info.”
In a recent interview during a press event for upcoming MCU film ‘Captain Marvel,’ Feige spoke about the future of Marvel, and why they are keeping mum. Feige said:
“As we’ve been doing for years, we aren’t going to announce anything post ‘Avengers: Endgame’ or ‘Spider-Man [Far From Home]’ until post ‘Endgame’ and ‘Spider-Man.’ As you know as a fan, there’s a tremendous amount of potential and a tremendous amount of additional characters and storylines and groups of characters that we’re going to keep playing with. And again, that’s a testament to Marvel and to the amount of storylines and characters and amazing, amazing runs that have been in the Marvel comics.”
The list of potential characters that could be joining the MCU has grown recently, as the ‘X-Men’ mutants have crossed over to Marvel. Feige also explained that the pattern of releasing two to three movies a year could change, saying:
“We’ve always said there are no mandates to make any more than two films a year. But, as we’ve seen the last couple years, when it naturally happens, and when there are ideas and when there are teams ready to go, we’re not going to hold something back.”
When asked if fans should be expecting to see standalone films, team-ups, or all-out ensemble films, Feige kept it vague, saying:
“All of the above.”
Feige concluded his interview promising that the studio knows exactly where it’s going, even if some secrets will be kept close to the chest, saying:
“I don’t think we’ll be announcing five or six years, but we know sort of where we want to head in the next five or six years.”
‘Captain Marvel’ opens in theaters on March 8, followed by ‘Avengers: Endgame’ on April 26 and ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ on July 5.
