FirstShowing attended the Producer Guild of America’s panel on Producing Marvel Movies where Marvel Entertainment producer Kevin Feige revealed a couple interesting bits about upcoming film projects:
- It’s a “safe bet” that Steve Roger’s sidekick Bucky is going to show up in The First Avenger: Captain America.
- Scarlett Johansson character in Iron Man 2 has “two sides,” entering the picture as an assistant to Tny Stark, but later revealed as Black Widow. Johnansson is signed up for multiple films.
- Edgar Wright is writing another draft of the script, which should be finished sometime after he is done on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
- Marvel is planning on announcing another new movie for 2012 within the next few months.
My guess is Ant-Man but with Wright busy on Scott Pilgrim, an Ant-Man movie isn’t likely to happen anytime soon. With Samuel L Jackson signed on for a rumored 9 movies, could it be a Nick Fury stand-alone film? Sub-Mariner is another possibility. The Avengers is set to hit theaters on May 4th 2012, and Marvel has been doing May and July releases. So I’m sure the next release might be mid-July 2012. How about Iron Man 3? Iron Man came out in 2008, Iron Man 2 hits theaters in 2010, why not keep up the two year production cycle? It might be possible to shoot a third Iron Man film alongside or back to back with The Avengers movie… What do you think it could be?
