Kevin Feige Talks Expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe

Kevin Feige

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is growing. After another impressive showing at Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige discussed the expanding universe and how the current Avengers will be mixed with newer cast members like Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) and Tom Holland (Spider-Man).

“You always look to the comic books, as we do, and you look at how rosters shift and rosters change and characters go away for a while and characters come back. I would guess that we would get to that soon. Luckily, we’re years away from it. Everything that we’re doing right now when we’re not here getting ready for Comic-Con is focused on the nine movies that will be produced over the next three years and that takes up all of our time and all of our thoughts and all of those include all of those great actors you just mentioned and all of those characters.”

Feige added that when it comes to planning ahead for movies, they are always looking at least five years out.

“We always look at a horizon line that’s usually about five years off. Sometimes, even that is sort of a pipe dream, sometimes it even goes beyond that. That’s usually what we’re looking at. Right now, we know through and have announced through 2019. We have ideas and pretty firm of where we’re going in 2020. 2021, which still sounds like the crazy, far fetched future to me, but 2021 is still in flux through 2025.”

    I’m hoping and praying that the cinematic and Netflix collide eventually, I want that in infinity wars or something, maybe pt. 2 but I want it

      I can’t see it being anything other than a cameo. Maybe like a shot of hells kitchen with the defenders battling nameless minions. And it being like a montage around the world with similar shots in Wakanda, somewhere else with unknown guys fighting(Inhumans), etc.

        I agree that something along those lines is the most likely course of the movies to come, but I feel like that would be cutting short the possibilities on the silver screen with these agents of shield and powered and non powered superheroes being embodied
