spiderman john hughes movie

How does it feel to be able to include Spider-Man in the MCU?

Kevin Feige: Making that agreement with Amy and Mike and Tom Rothmans at Sony was great and really amazing. On a personal level making these movies it means a lot because you can do great things with Spider-Man and he can serve a great purpose in our universe, and thats where he belongs. Thats what was unique about him in the comics is not that he was the only superhero in the world, it was that he was a totally different kind of superhero when compared against the other ones in the Marvel universe. … It means a lot and now we better not screw it up.

How did they deal with inserting Spider-Man into the plan they already had leading towards Infinity War?

Kevin Feige: The short answer is: the most important thing is the stand alone movie, relaunching Spider-Man with a stand alone movie with a new storyline that fits into this universe – thats job number one for us. And as is the case, the connectivity is great but it doesn’t drive the train. That being said, if I understand what you’re asking, we had… this has been a dream of ours for a long time, and we always had contingency plans should you know — which we always do anyways. Are we going to be able to make another movie with this actor? If we are then we’ll do this, if not, we’re going to do this. If we get the rights to a certain character that’d be great, then we’d do this, if not, we’d do this. So we always sort of operate with those alternate timelines available and are ready to shift if something happens.

Guardians of the Galaxy

When will Guardians of the Galaxy cross over with the earth bound Marvel heroes?

Kevin Feige: Well, its a good question. And certainly Thanos and the Infinity stones are the connection between all those movies and especially Guardians. So I do think they’ll be more crossover into that sector of the Marvel literal universe. When or if those specific characters start switching remains to be seen. And the Guardians 2 team just left for Atlanta on Monday to start that movie, so all the Guardians effort and thought is going to that — which is shaping up very nicely right now.

Howard the Duck in Guardians of the Galaxy

How does Howard The Duck make it back to Earth?

Kevin Feige: Does Howard The Duck want to come to Earth? I don’t know, It didn’t work out too well last time he came to earth.

Marvel One Shots

When will Marvel One Shots short films return?

Kevin Feige: We talk about that a lot actually, because when you have tables like that (lots of potential storylines, most unexplored in the finished film), and we go, What are we going to do with Howard? What are we going to do with Cosmo? We should do a one shot with Michael Pena. I mean, the universe is big. We’re moving up to three movies a year and I’m not sure how much beyond that we can go so the one shots are great for: oh we have this great idea, wouldn’t it be fun to see… We talk about it a lot. We’re a relatively small team. We’re comfortable doing three movies a year so its just about finding the time and the place. But we have a backlog of ideas.

Doctor Strange D23

When will we get more casting announcements for Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2?

Kevin Feige: I think it will be pretty quickly. There will be a slew of casting announcements over the next few months. Before the end of the year on those two films and some other films.
