Kevin Feige is no stranger in letting us know a little dirt when comes to the Marvel Universe, and recently while promoting Thor: The Dark World, he answered some questions on the future of Marvel. Obviously, Phase 2 is underway with all the individual Avenger movies, but Feige goes a little further than that. Here is what he had to say:
We have been discussing after Avengers what that would be, what that would look like. It’s really Mark [Ruffalo’s] portrayal of Bruce Banner, in the way Joss Whedon brought him to life in Avengers that worked. It’s even why you ask me that question. Which is good, we wanted that to happen, we wanted people to come out of Avengers saying The Hulk was their favorite character or at least one of their favorite. The fact that it did happen was awesome. So, you know, all of the effort related to Hulk right know is going to Age of Ultron. It’s exciting, because he hasn’t been in any other film, so you can expect to have a lot of Bruce Banner and Hulk in Age of Ultron. Where we go after that ? We’ll see. It will be a little while before we figure that out but, we do think there’s plenty of opportunities with the Ruffalo Banner.
That just shows you that The Hulk does not need his own movie. It was a shock to all of us just how good Whedon brought out that character, and after hearing what Feige had to say about Avengers 2, I am looking forward to seeing how they utilize him in the future. Feige also went on to talk about Guardians Of The Galaxy. WARNING: MINOR SPOILER FOR THOR 2.
Guardians of the Galaxy, we just finished filming that like a week ago. It is really a very special movie for us at Marvel. We love those characters, we believe in that storyline. Nobody’s ever heard of it, which is in some ways liberating. The way many people had never heard of Iron Man before the first Iron Man movie. So we’re excited to find ourselves sort in the same creative state of mind we were on Iron Man 1. Which is to say : ‘How do we best introduce those characters that most people don’t know, and bring them to a big audience ?’ What James Gunn has done, both in his script and directing the cast… The cast that has been assembled is one that we’re very proud of. The footage looks incredible. People who stay after the credits in Thor : The Dark World will see the initial glimpse of that world.
Yes, minor spoiler, but it is almost obvious that Thor would introduce The Guardians. Let me know what you think about what he had to say.
