marvel contingency plans

I attended a Q&A with Marvel head Kevin Feige last night which you can read about elsewhere on the site (Infinity Stones/Infinity War and the future of the Marvel Universe). One quote in particular no one seems to be focusing on is something Feige said when answering my question about how they can insert a character like Spider-Man into the long-term arc leading to Infinity War, which has clearly already been plotted far in advance.

His answer contained a little nugget of information: Marvel has contingency story plans in the far-off case the company is able to get back the movie character rights for some of the properties they don’t currently control. As you know, this currently stands at the X-Men and Fantastic Four universes, which includes Wolverine, Silver Surfer, Deadpool, Cable and others. Find out exactly what Feige said about the Marvel contingency plans, after the jump.

Last night I attended an event where Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were in attendance answering questions about Avengers: Age of Ultron and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  You can read everything they said about plotting the Infinity Stones in the first two and upcoming phase three of the MCU, and where they are headed in The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 in our other post. In this post you can find all the interesting answers that didn’t fit thematically in the other post:

  • How does it feel to be able to include Spider-Man in the MCU?
  • How was Spider-Man inserted into the plan they already had leading towards The Avengers: Infinity War?
  • Does Marvel have plans for Fantastic Four and X-Men in the chance they get the rights back?
  • Will The Marvel television characters or storylines ever appear in the Marvel movies? Would characters be recast?
  • Why didn’t Captain Marvel and other Marvel character have a cameo at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron?
  • When will Guardians of the Galaxy cross over with the earth bound Marvel heroes?
  • When will we get more casting announcements for Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2?
  • How does Howard The Duck make it back to Earth?
  • When will Marvel One Shots short films return?

Spider-Man Avengers crossover

It’s no secret that while Andrew Garfield took residence in New York City as The Amazing Spider-Man, he wanted our friendly neighborhood wallcrawler to end up meeting with The Avengers in the Marvel cinematic universe.

But besides a desire to team up with The Avengers, it turns out Andrew Garfield was actively trying to make some kind of crossover happen ever since he took the role of Spidey. Find out more about the Amazing Spider-Man Avengers crossover efforts below! Read More »
