    Default Kevin Feige Confirms Marvel-Disney Animated Collaboration

    Unsure of what has already made its way onto the web, Kevin Feige doesn't seem confident in what he can or can't say about a Marvel-Disney animated collaboration, but he's at least copped to it that such an idea exists.

    He's also given a couple of clues, however obliquely, as to what the project might entail.

    Feige was speaking to Slashfilm, ostensibly about The Avengers. Late in their interview, chat comes around to the possibility of something animated from Marvel, an idea that Slashfilm recently reflected from a story I ran a few weeks back.

    Here's what Feige had to say:
    Yeah, no I?m not going to be the one to say what it is, but as you might imagine when we have thousands of characters and properties and now are owned by Disney, who has the greatest animation studio on earth, there are going to be discussions...There are certainly discussions.
    Two particularly interesting pieces to that, I think.

    "I'm not going to be the one to say what it is" - so it's something defined and specific, in some sense.

    "Thousands of characters and properties" - so it's likely to be an adaptation, of some sort.

    "Discussions" is, of course, producer speak for anything that hasn't been officially announced or doesn't have a green light. It's impossible to tell what stage the project is at, but I think we've just confirmed that the project exists in some meaningful sense.

    As to why the project would be carried out with Disney and not Pixar (as if it would make any difference, but you know the fanboy mindset), Feige said:
    Well I haven?t said no to Pixar, but Pixar is clearly doing their own thing.
    Animated films take such a long time that, if the studio press ahead, I think we'll be hearing more about this one relatively soon - and then waiting around for years to get our first look at it.

    When did Disney buy Ghibli?

    This is true. I remember first hearing about Dreamworks' Megamind, which was called Mastermind back then, in early 2007, but didn't see any character designs until summer 2009. And then we didn't get a teaser until March 2010.

    So, when we do get an announcement, we're looking at about 2 more years before we really see anything and nearly another year before we see footage.

    Not sure who it was but somebody avengers related (quite correctly) said that any animated movies from Marvel, would be from Disney rather than Pixar because

    "Pixar, at least at the moment, strictly do original concepts developed in house, not adaptations". Which sounds like a distinction that is even more valid now that Lasseter's In charge across the board.

    Also can I put my vote in for animated Howard. If they really need to aim it at kids maybe the "Daydreamers" cast could work.

    Howard, Man-Thing, Artie, Leech and Franklin. loved that concept, shame the series didn't quite live up to it.
