Making one good movie is hard enough. Since 2008, Marvel Studios has been making one or two per year. If the films continue to be successful, company president Kevin Feige says that number could potentially double. In a new interview, Feige suggests that depending on the next several years of Marvel films, there’s a chance the current model of two films per year could expand to three or maybe even four.

At the junket for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige offered updates Avengers: Age of Ultron, Doctor Strange, Black Widow, Captain America 3 and more. You might think that’s more than enough information on the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe but it’s not. Not even close. Feige has been asked, and commented, on many, many other things as well.
To make due, we’ve compiled the first ever “Kevin Feige Bits,” quotes that are interesting but maybe not quite revealing enough for their own story. There’s one on the potential connection between Avengers: Age of Ultron and Inhumans, conversations about linking the Netflix shows with the MCU, and if the Thor 3 villain was teased on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Read them below. Read More »

Briefly: There’s little info on this one at this point, but just one day after Marvel started to confirm plans for a third Captain America movie, a third Thor film is going into motion. One of the first key players is chosen from within Marvel’s offices.
Craig Kyle, writer and producer for many of Marvel’s animated efforts, a producer on both previous Thor films, and who has been a VP of Production and Development at Marvel, will co-wrote Thor 3. His partner will be Christopher Yost, who did a polish on the Thor: The Dark World script.
There’s no information on their story approach, nor of a possible director. That said, Kyle has teased the potential of Ragnarok in interviews given over the past year, so that could be something to look forward to. [Variety]
Thor: The Dark World is still a few weeks away, but it seems pretty likely to be a hit. I thought the movie was really fun, plenty of other critics agree, and fans are excited to see the Marvel Cinematic Universe continue to expand. All that makes it seem likely we’ll see Thor 3 in the future. In fact, Kevin Feige exclusively told us they do have ideas about that film, but it’s not in active development.
So what might those ideas be? Chris Hemsworth dropped a few hints on the Thor 3 plot in a new interview. Read that below and also check out a brand new, action-packed clip from the film, featuring Tom Hiddleston, that shows off the energy and humor present in Thor: The Dark World. Read More »
Most people are made of cells; Kevin Feige is made of news. Seemingly every time the Marvel Studios president does an interview, he drops a ton of interesting news about the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe. Speaking to Feige in London this weekend about Thor: The Dark World was no different. While the majority of that conversation dealt with major spoilers from the film (check back after the November 8 opening for that talk) he did offer up some interesting quotes about Marvel moving ahead.
First up, Feige said we’ve already heard all of the new properties they’re working on, most of which haven’t been officially announced. Things like Doctor Strange, Inhumans, Hulk etc. He then talked about why Ultron is bad enough to cause The Avengers to assemble again, but Malekith (in Thor: The Dark World) is not. Third, while Tom Hiddleston has confirmed he won’t be in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Feige said he wouldn’t be back before Thor 3. (A film they have ideas about, but is far from official). Finally, he explained how the Marvel release schedule might look moving ahead and that Comic-Con 2014 isn’t assuredly where we’d find out about those new films.
