Kevin Feige Talks Future Marvel Movies And Filming Avengers: Infinity War

Posted by November 13, 2017 Comment

The Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked off in 2008 with the release of the original Iron Man, and next year it will celebrate its 10th year. Kevin Feige recently spoke to Collider about the anniversary and the movies beyond Avengers 4:

“Primarily the movies we’re releasing next year are the celebration of the 10 years. Black Panther, obviously Infinity War, Ant-Man and Wasp. Those are the primary focus. In addition to that, the logo we revealed at D23, I have fond memories in 1987 of Star Wars, the first ten years, 77-87. They made a logo, they had t-shirts, they did small stuff. That was during the dark ages of Star Wars, where there hadn’t been anything. Thankfully, we’re not in the dark ages right now of the MCU, but I think there’ll be just acknowledgements of the 10 years that have come before. There’ll be some merchandise released and some re-releases in home video. Primarily it is all leading up to the three movies in particular, and obviously, Infinity War.”

A lot of people are wondering what the release dates for Marvel movies post-2019 will be. Feige knows what those movies are, but he isn’t sharing:

“It won’t be for a while. Our focus is on the next six movies. Finishing the first three phases, getting Untitled Avengers out into the world in May ‘19 before publicly focusing on anything else.”

When it comes to huge projects like Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 and shooting them back to back, Feige revealed that while nothing really surprises him at this point, a project like that is overwhelming:

“I guess what has surprised me is how emotional it all is. Every day, every dailies, every time an actor that has never interacted with a character comes in contact with a character they’ve never interacted with, it’s amazing. It’s both funny, it’s moving and just seeing all those people together in one spot is—you know me, I like to look ahead. I like to focus on, I’m already in Black Panther world, even though we’re talking about Ragnarok. We keep going. There is something very special about those movies that is happening everyday on set. It’s not just the crew that feels it, or me that feels it, it’s all the cast who are all mega-stars in their own right, yet feel privileged to be doing what they’re doing every day. Joe and Anthony handling it, two movies at the same time, in an unprecedented fashion.”

Avengers: Infinity War, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, stars Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Chadwick Boseman, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Bradley Cooper, Sean Gunn, and Anthony Mackie. It will be released on May 4th, 2018.
