It was big news when Sony and Marvel announced they’d worked out a deal to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And the word on Captain America: Civil War is that the new Spidey, played by Tom Holland, gets off to a fantastic start. But Civil War is a movie released by Marvel Studios. Holland’s first solo outing, Spider-Man: Homecoming, is being distributed by Sony. So who really holds Spider-Man’s future in their hands?
Well, new comments by Kevin Feige suggest it’s Marvel, not Sony, which will have creative control over the character. Which should come as a huge relief if you weren’t a fan of Sony’s handling of the past two Spider-Men. Read More »

In just under three weeks, fans will begin Phase Three of Marvel’s cinematic universe with Captain America: Civil War. However, even though this new chapter is just beginning, that’s not keeping Kevin Feige from addressing what’s to come in Phase Four. With 11 films listed as part of Phase Three, we have a lot of movies to get through before Phase Four is even on the horizon, but it sounds like the next line-up of movies that follows will offer up something completely different for Marvel fans.

Last summer, it was announced Tom Holland had secured the role of Spider-Man. At the time, we already knew the character would appear in Captain America: Civil War, a role that was highlighted in the last trailer for the film. While it would’ve been more fun to experience the character on the big screen for the first time, it was an understandable decision on Marvel and Disney’s part to promote Spidey’s involvement.
Fans of Spider-Man will most likely be pleased with his role in Civil War, which shows the character at his youngest and nerdiest. Below, Marvel’s Kevin Feige discusses the new Spider-Man, the experience of casting Tom Holland, and collaborating with Sony.

Back in 2008, Iron Man, for some, was a surprising hit. Marvel’s first film not only exceeded box office predictions, but it also surpassed fans and general audiences’ expectations. If the comic book movie didn’t do as well as it did, then Marvel’s plans, most likely, would’ve been squashed.
Besides helping to set up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, director Jon Favreau accomplished more than just that with his film. Below, Marvel president Kevin Feige reflects on Iron Man and how it influenced the rest of the MCU.

While a lot of the early reactions to Captain America: Civil War praised the new depiction of Spider-Man, that doesn’t mean Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) isn’t every bit as entertaining as the web slinger. Marvel should have no problem getting unfamiliar audiences invested in this character.
Below, Marvel studio president Kevin Feige tells us a bit about the upcoming Black Panther standalone film, which is being helmed by Ryan Coogler, and explains why it doesn’t necessarily have to be the Black Panther origin story.

After many, many years of rumors, Marvel officially announced an Inhumans movie in 2014, set to open in 2018. At the time, the film was positioned as the final standalone before Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 capped off Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2019. But although the idea of the Inhumans was introduced a bit earlier than we expected — they’ve been a plot point in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. since season 2 — the Inhumans movie has been delayed to 2019. And now it’s getting pushed back again.
While Marvel Studios has yet to announce a new release date for Inhumans, president Kevin Feige has admitted it’s likely to get postponed, blaming Disney’s continually shifting release schedule. Read his comments on the Inhumans delayed release date below. Read More »
Between 2011 and 2014, Marvel Studios released five short films called Marvel One-Shots. Each short film told a side story that tied into part of the larger cinematic universe, featuring some of the films’ stars such as Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson, Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter and Ben Kinglsey as the faux Mandarin, a.k.a. Trevor Slattery. Each was released on home video packaged with one of the Marvel films, but after Thor: The Dark World, they stopped. However, in a new interview, Captain America: Civil War directing duo Anthony & Joe Russo hint at Marvel One-Shots returning, possibly in the form of original online content. Read More »

Next year’s Captain America: Civil War finally brings Black Panther into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and by the looks of it he’s going to be a force to be reckoned with. That’s him getting a sunlit hero shot, kicking the crap out of Cap’s beloved Bucky, and outrunning Cap himself — this guy is no slouch. But he’s not getting his own movie until 2018, which means we’ve got many, many months of speculation ahead of us.
For starters, we’re dying to know exactly what this movie is. What genre is it? What’s it about? Who’s in it? Marvel being Marvel, they’re not giving away too many plot details this early in the game. But studio head Kevin Feige‘s latest comments do give us a better sense of the film’s overall feel, and teases its connection to Avengers: Infinity War. Read More »

Marvel can take big swings these days. This year, they turned Ant-Man — a character most people are hardly familiar with — into a box-office hit, following the massively successful and equally obscure Guardians of the Galaxy. When Marvel’s name is on a film, people will show up, which is why it’s the perfect time to introduce Doctor Strange. Director Scott Derrickson (Sinister) can get weird with this comic book adaptation, and from the sound of it, that’s what he’s doing.
After the jump, read Marvel’s CEO Kevin Feige‘s comments on just how strange (not a bad pun, I promise) of a comic book movie Doctor Strange might be. He also gets into the character’s unique abilities and accessories — like the Eye of Agamotto, which could turn out to be very important to the MCU later on.
