Kevin Feige Says Marvel May Now Release One Sequel And One New Franchise Each Year

We know that Marvel Studios have big plans which reach as far as 2019, and in a recent interview, Kevin Feige has revealed that releasing a sequel followed by a new franchise like Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy could be their new model in the coming years...


IGN Movies recently caught up with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige at the Guardians of the Galaxy press junket and quizzed him about their Phase 3 plans following Ant-Man next summer. This year saw a sequel released in the form of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and then the first movie in a potential new franchise with the James Gunn helmed movie set in space. The same will happen again next year with Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, so will that be Marvel's method moving forwards? "[Guardians of the Galaxy] fulfilled our desire to do something different," Feige explained, "to start producing, each year, a film that was the sequel to a pre-existing, successful franchise and do something new. We're doing that next year with Age of Ultron, with Ant-Man, and hope to maybe continue that model in the coming years."

If this is the case a new movie will follow Captain America 3, and as many fans believe that we'll see Doctor Strange in 2016, then this seems extremely likely. When the site put this to Feige, he added: "I don't know that we'll keep to [that model] every year, but what we're doing this year and what we're doing next year is: existing franchise, new franchise, existing franchise, new franchise. So I think it would be fun to continue that sort of thing. I don't know that we will [do that] all the time, but as a general model, I think that would be fun." This would be an interesting strategy, and with big annoncements expected at Comic-Con next weekend, it should be very interesting to see how many new franchises are among the titles revealed. What would you guys like to see from Marvel next? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!
