Marvel Co-President Teases GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY & BLACK PANTHER
MTV caught up with Louis D'Esposito at Comic-Con and asked him about the mysterious 2014 Marvel movie that is going to be announced in Hall H later today. It is widely believed to be Guardians Of The Galaxy, but there have also been rumors of it being Black Panther - or perhaps it'll be none of the above! D'Esposito wouldn't reveal it outright of course, but he did explain the reasoning behind choosing the character(s) they have selected, saying ""It can always be an "Iron Man," "Thor" and "Cap". We need to grow from there.". MTV then asked him about both potential movies, and he definitely hints that either are possibilities, while suggesting GOTG might be a while away, and Black Panther comes with a few difficulties in adaptation.
Marvel will reveal plans for their 2014 movie at their SDCC panel today. It is expected to be GOTG, but Marvel co-president Louis D'Esposito also teases another movie that was rumored first - Black Panther..
On Guardians Of The Galaxy..
"That would be Marvel in space," he said. "That's a great concept and a great idea, and potentially one of our films in the future."
On Black Panther..
"He has a lot of the same characteristics of a Captain America: great character, good values," said the Marvel exec. "But it's a little more difficult, maybe, creating [a world like Wakanda]. It's always easier basing it here. For instance, 'Iron Man 3' is rooted right here in Los Angeles and New York. When you bring in other worlds, you're always faced with those difficulties."
Hmmm. Could neither one be the mystery 2014 movie after all? D'Esposito also says that Marvel may possibly consider trying to produce three movies a year instead of their usual two, so it may be even be both! (note: It won't be both) All will be revealed soon.
