Kevin Feige Addresses The Complicated Movie Rights Of Namor The Sub-Mariner

Sub-Mariner1968n1In an interview with IGN.com, the head of Marvel Studios was asked about the possiblity of Universal and Legendary Pictures making a Sub-Mariner movie. Kevin Feige responded with, “No.”

They then asked him if a Namor film was going to be made, would Marvel be the one to make it…

Yes, but it’s slightly more complicated than that. Let’s put it this way – there are entanglements that make it less easy. There are older contracts that still involve other parties that mean we need to work things out before we move forward on it. As opposed to an Iron Man or any of the Avengers or any of the other Marvel characters where we could just put them in.”
