Marvel movies in development

Marvel Studios just released its seventeenth movie in its ongoing cinematic universe, but there’s very little wear-and-tear on this massive movie juggernaut. They’re operating like a well-oiled machine over there, and in a new Vanity Fair profile released today, Marvel Studios president and mega-producer Kevin Feige revealed that Marvel has “another 20 movies on the docket” – and that’s not even counting films that are currently in production or post-production, like Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and the two upcoming Avengers sequels.

So what do Feige and Marvel have up their sleeves? Below, we take an educated guess and try to figure out all 20 of the Marvel movies in development.

Marvel Cinematic Universe Actresses

Around the time the cast of Thor: Ragnarok was making the publicity rounds for the Marvel Studios sequel, cast member Tessa Thompson revealed that she and the rest of the female stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe talked to Kevin Feige about a possible all-female superhero team-up movie. Tessa Thompson explained:

“Recently, I marched up with a couple of other women that work in Marvel and we went to Kevin, ‘What about a movie with some female super heroes? Like all of them?'”

Kevin Feige quickly agreed to this idea, but we’ll be waiting at least a few years before that movie gets off the ground. In the meantime, we can imagine what it might be like with a new photo of almost all the Marvel Cinematic Universe actresses together for the first time ever. Read More »

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: How Marvel’s episodic treatment of their characters undercuts the larger dramatic arc.)

The events of Thor: Ragnarok had some enormous consequences that should have lasting effects on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But will those events really mean anything if they are just going to get retconned in the next film?

mcu future

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is promising something that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has never really had before: a finale.

From the outside, the MCU’s future may seem uncertain, as the comic book movie studio keeps hidden the slate of superhero films that will hit theaters after the climactic Avengers 4. But that doesn’t mean that there won’t be any superhero movies to follow up the Avengers sequel — far from it. Instead, the MCU will look vastly different after Avengers 4, which Feige promises will be the “finale” of the current era of the MCU and the beginning of a whole new, possibly cosmic, era of films.

MCU vs DECU

The animosity between Marvel and DC fans can sometimes be overwhelming. Rather than embracing the differences between these two different superhero universes, fans tend to start internet flame wars with each other, often resorting often hostile, violent language. It’s not fun, and it’s not at all in the spirit of the stories both of these cinematic universes are trying to tell. With Thor: Ragnarok currently playing in theaters and Justice League opening next week, Marvel Cinematic Universe mastermind Kevin Feige has requested fans cool out and stop fighting amongst themselves. It’s time to put an end to the MCU vs DCEU rivalry.

Thor Ragnarok Warriors Three

The opening seconds of Thor: Ragnarok make it abundantly clear that this is not going to be like the previous two Thor films. It really can’t be overstated how much of a comedy this is, and director Taika Waititi reshapes the franchise into something that aligns with his storytelling sensibilities. That means that certain elements or characters from previous movies are treated differently than in prior movies, and such is the case with the Warriors Three, Asgardian soldiers played by Zachary Levi (Fandral), Tadanobu Asano (Hogun), and Ray Stevenson (Volstagg). (Levi took over for original Fandral actor Joshua Dallas, who’s pictured above.)

Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige addressed the treatment of those characters in a new interview, and you can read his spoilery Thor Ragnarok Warriors Three comments below.

Thor Ragnarok - Cate Blanchett as Hela

A few weeks back, I had my annual sit-down with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige to talk about the latest Marvel movie, Thor: Ragnarok. We will be running the more spoiler-filled bits from the interview next week, but today, I present to you the non-spoiler section.

In the interview, Feige reveals that Hela was initially planned to be the villain of the second Thor film, Thor: The Dark World, and talks about how Ragnarok evolved into what we see on the big screen. He also talks about the collaboration with filmmakers like Taika Waititi and James Gunn, and if Disneyland’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout attraction has Sakaar origins.

Hulk movie

Stop trying to ask Kevin Feige when a solo Hulk movie is going to happen. It’s not going to happen.

But it’s for reasons beyond the fact that the green-skinned monster’s last solo outing, The Incredible Hulk, did lackluster numbers at the box office, that the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s slate is packed for the next 15 years, or that Feige is probably just annoyed people keep pestering him about it. It’s a deeper issue that has to do with the Hulk’s confusing movie rights between Marvel Studios and Universal.
