Marvel Phase 3 Kevin Feige

Today in Hollywood Disney held a Marvel Event to announce their plans for phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I was in attendance at the El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Blvd for the announcements, which have already been covered elsewhere on the site.

After the event was over and the fans in attendance were escorted out of the theatre, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige gave a 20 minute question and answer session answering all of the press’ questions about the newly revealed Marvel Phase 3 slate and even some answers that extend beyond that (phase 4, 5…etc). I was able to record the entire question and answer session on video using my IPhone, and have uploaded the entire thing for you to watch. So hit the jump now to watch Kevin Feige answer all your questions about Marvel Phase 3 and beyond.

This story and podcast was published on May 17th 2012, just after the release of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers. I thought it would be fun to take a look back at our predictions from 27 months ago to see how things are panning out for phase two and three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some of the predictions seem obvious in hindsight, like Germain predicting that Thanos wouldn’t be the villain of Avengers 2 and Jeff foreseeing that Thanos’ appearance during the Avengers end credits stinger was probably a set-up for another film, Guardians of the Galaxy. But one must remember this was recorded before a Guardians of the Galaxy movie was even announced, which happened months later at 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. Enjoy!

MOTHER
At a certain point, after watching so many movies for so long, you sometimes forget that films can still surprise you. I had no idea what to expect when Mother started, and every time I thought I was starting to figure it out, the film took me to new and disturbing places I could have never anticipated. As with Bong Joon-ho’s Memories of Murder, the film has an oft-used murder mystery police procedural format, but through its unconventional protagonist and off-kilter tone it finds new life in a tired formula. Unlike most murder mysteries, it finds just the right emotional and thematic satisfaction in both of its plot threads: the present mother-son story that’s the basis for the movie, and the past mother-daughter story being investigated. Joon-ho’s ability to balance this bleak, solemn material with these raw moments of physical comedy is unmatched—perhaps because no other filmmaker would even think to try. What limits should one assume for a movie in which characters are at risk of being kicked in the face at any moment? Hardly any, it would seem; Mother is only limited by its need to tell a great story.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: Blu-ray – Making-of featurettes (“Music Score”, “Supporting Actors”, “Cinematography”, “Production Design”, “A Look at Actress Kim Hye-ja”, “Behind the Scenes”).

Video Blog: The Future of Marvel Movies

marvel film logo

Earlier today, Hayley Atwell was cast as the female lead in The First Avenger: Captain America. When geek news like this breaks, I’ll often talk to Steve from Collider on the phone and we’ll tell each other what we think. It’s conversations like these that originally led to us to record our first video blogs. After a few minutes of talking this afternoon, we realized with the recent announcement of Joss Whedon on The Avengers movie, we both had a lot to say about not only Captain America and The Avengers, but the future of Marvel movies and the choices the studio has made and might make in the future.

So we recorded a video blog on the future of the Marvel movie universe. Some of the things we discussed were Marvel casting and directorial choices thus far, the pros and cons of Joss Whedon, casting unknowns versus movie stars, what’s up with Ant-Man and is Edgar Wright going to direct it, is Marvel being cheap with their actors and directors, did Jon Favreau get offered Avengers, Thor talk, The Runaways talk, will the merger of Marvel and Disney lead to a Pixar Marvel movie, why hasn’t someone hired Brian K. Vaughan to direct a movie, and Frosty pitches a television show concept called The Marvel Universe , which would be a perfect fit on ABC.
