Thor and Captain America Sequels Confirmed
Have you ever wondered why I Make Mine Marvel? Well, ladies and gents, you are about to find out. Transcending the comic book page, the future of my favorite heroes on the big screen is looking bright indeed. I’ll tell you why.
IGN just reported on an epic conversation between Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Disney twenty-three magazine (get your copy in print on May 3rd). And even without the use of Dr. Stephen Strange’s mystic powers, Feige was able to paint a picture of Marvel movies to come.
“X-Men was the dawn of the new Marvel cinematic age,” he said. To that I’ll add an Amen! You know X-Men: First Class may see sequels.
“Iron Man was the dawn of the Marvel Studios age and the establishment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the beginning of that continuity. The Avengers is the next big step,” he continued.
“Once all these characters come together, it’s the culmination of all that has come before. It launches a new era and a new time in the history of our films. Not only will it be the first film that our new home studio, Disney, will be distributing, but it will also renew each of these characters and launch them into their own franchises, starting with the second film to be released by Disney, Iron Man 3.”
What Feige is saying is, not only will the upcoming action adventures make history by starring so many heroes at once, but those films, The Avengers in particular, will serve as a spring board to launch new solo tales as well. I hope it’ll revitalize ‘em, too.
So, following The Avengers movie, slated for a May 4, 2012 release, “Thor will go off into a new adventure, and Captain America will continue to explore the modern world in another film of his own.” That news should inspire a fanboy (and fangirl) squeal for joy, heard ’round the world.
“We hope that holds true for the characters appearing in that film — Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the spy organization, S.H.I.E.L.D. —all of whom are more than worthy and capable of carrying their own films.”
Wait, there’s more!
“And, we’ve got a lot of other characters we’re prepping and getting ready for film debuts: the world of martial arts, these great cosmic space fantasies, Dr. Strange, and the magic side of the Marvel Universe. There are many, many stories to be mined.” Ha! Am I in sync with my favorite comic book engine or what?
When we know more, you will, too!
