Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige has some kind words to say about the future of Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel franchise.
Captain Marvel hits theaters on Friday and will introduce fans to Carol Danvers, played by 21 Jump Street star Brie Larson. The hero’s arrival was teased during the end credits scene attached to Avengers: Infinity War, foreshadowing her appearance in the highly-anticipated follow-up Avengers: Endgame.
Kevin Feige spoke with ScreenRant about a possible sequel to Captain Marvel after the film debuts later this week. Although he remained tight-lipped on specific story details, the report reveals that Kevin Feige simply said the ideas regarding the future of the Brie Larson-led franchise are “pretty amazing”. The Marvel Studios boss also had this to tell ScreenRant regarding the future of Carol Danvers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“The making of a first film is in some ways a brainstorm on the future and on what can be. So what it will be again is not clear. But what it could be is pretty amazing.”
The third installment of the MCU arriving later this year is Sony’s Spider-Man: Far From Home. The exciting new film will feature the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker, who was sadly one of Thanos’ victims in the finale of Avengers: Infinity War.
Marvel Studios has yet to release a film this year but the studio is still having a great 2019. During this year’s Academy Awards ceremony, Black Panther won Marvel Studios its first Oscar. It didn’t just win one either, the hit film took home three Oscars for Production Design, Costume Design, and Best Original Score.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he’s one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes’ arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he’d love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I’ve always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he’s done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio’s best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c’mon, the guy’s look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn’t deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He’s charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he’s young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
