With a certified global box office of well over $800 million to date, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige sat down to chat with Bloomberg’s Carol Massar on the Disney Studios lot in Burbank, and laid out his plans for the next few years. There is nothing especially new, but it is interesting to see just how planned The Avengers enterprise was and the possible directors of the franchise.
“We want to do usually 2 films a year…In a week and a half we start filming Iron Man 3…By the end of the summer, we’ll be working on the next Thor film, early next year the next Captain America film. Those are the three we’ve announced so far. We’ve got two beyond that we haven’t announced, but we’re working on”.
When asked about plans for the second Avengers film, Feige is quick to clear up exactly where he sees the series going. He certainly leave the next “team” movie open to being something other than an Avengers film. There are, after all, long-standing rumours of a Guardians of the Galaxy film.
“The Avengers…was always a milestone, it was never a destination. So we’ve been working on the storylines for the next Iron Man film, the next Thor film, the next Cap film for years already”.
On the creative side, Feige is asked about the success of the films:
“We don’t want to meet expectations…we want to exceed them. And I think Joss [Whedon] did that…We have been rewarded for sticking to our visions…”
