Kevin Feige Teases GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 Plot And Future Plans For THANOS
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige shares his thoughts on 2017's Guardians of the Galaxy 2, plans for Thanos and other cosmic villains from the first movie, and how he believes a meeting between the Guardians and The Avengers will play out on the big screen...
If you haven't seen Guardians of the Galaxy, you're going to want to stop reading now as there are some MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! Seen the movie? Still here? Good. In a recent interview with IGN Movies, Kevin Feige was quizzed about the hints which were dropped in the movie's final act about Peter Quill's father and whether that will form the backbone of the recently announced sequel which is set to be released in 2017. "I think it's pretty important," he teased. "I think there's a reason we seeded it at the very end of the film like that. I think that would certainly be part of a next Guardians adventure. Certainly, that would be part of it." As for Thanos - who has so far failed to aquire any of the Infinity Stones - and whether or not we'll see why he's a force to be reckoned with anytime soon (such as in Avengers: Age of Ultron next year for example), Feige added: "That is an excellent point to make. I don't know. The truth is, anything I say would be a spoiler, frankly, on that. I don't think it's required. I think you could go right into a Thanos-centered movie and tell the audience anything you need to know. But the fun of our universe is that the characters can pop up in multiple franchises, so... perhaps. It is a good question."
Regardless of when and where it happens, we know that Thanos (Josh Brolin) WILL return sooner or later), but there's another villain who many fans are also expecting to see again. Nebula is one of only a handful of Marvel movie baddies to make it to the end credits still alive, so do they have plans for the character played by Doctor Who star Karen Gillan? "I would say any character that doesn't overtly perish is certainly fair game to come back. If people know the comic lore, Nebula has a lot of varying different roles to play over the course of a lot of different titles in the comics. We have somebody like Karen, and you have a look that is so weird and so great. I think that's something we'd all like to see again."
Finally, talk turned to a subject we've all been discussing since Guardians of the Galaxy was released; when are they going to meet the Avengers? As you might expect, the Marvel Studios boss wasn't willing to give anything away! "You know, the fun about The Avengers, as we we're gearing up to that, was 'how would Tony Stark deal with goody two-shoes Steve Rogers in World War II?'" Feige said when asked how Earth's Mightiest Heroes would get on with Star-Lord and his team when they inevitably meet. "What would Tony Stark think of a Norse god who wields a hammer? The brilliance of Joss [Whedon] was having fun with that. So who knows if and when these guys would ever connect, but it is fun thinking about, how would Steve Rogers react to Rocket? Or, you're right, Drax couldn't even have a conversation with Tony Stark! [Laughs] I have a theory that the more time Drax spends with Peter Quill, the more he's going to start to learn, perhaps, that people aren't always as literal as his species would assume." What do you guys think?
