Kevin Feige Updates On Marvel’s PHASE 2 Films And DAREDEVIL Rights Reversion
Further boasting the potential of Guardians of the Galaxy, Kevin Feige updates the status of the Thor & Captain America sequels, while also addressing whether there’re plans for Daredevil.
While attending Entertainment Weekly’s CapeTown Film Festival for a screening of Iron Man 3, Marvel president Kevin Feige offered brief updates for the studios’ upcoming cinematic endeavors. During the Q&A, hosted by Geoff Boucher, Feige updated the status of Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, while boasting about Guardians of the Galaxy, and addressing plans, if any, for Daredevil; as well as the possibility of a CBM centered on a female character.
“Thor has finished filming, and we’re in the cutting room now,” he said. “I was in editorial for most of the day on that movie. Right downstairs, below editorial, are stages in Manhattan Beach where Captain America: The Winter Soldier is filming right now. This is the middle of our fifth week of production on Cap.” [Feige] talked about how Falcon brings out a fun side of Cap that no one else does. Concerning Guardians of the Galaxy, Feige is excited by the prospect of quickening the pace established by the Avengers mega-franchise. “We’re starting to see the cohesiveness come back. And with something like Guardians, there’s so much potential because, outside of the dedicated fans, almost no one knows about them. Avengers was a nice slow burn, introducing characters and leading up to a movie with all of them in it. I really liked the idea of going to the other side of the universe and building a team in a single movie.”
Kevin Feige was asked about the possibility of a Marvel film focused on a female character.
“We have a number of candidates from the comics and from the movies we’ve already made. It’s just a matter of finding the right storyline, the right filmmaker, the right time.” Someone in the audience yelled “She-Hulk!” Feige responded, “She-Hulk would be pretty great.”
Given that the character rights of Matthew Murdock, aka Daredevil, recently reverted from Fox Studios to Marvel Studios, Feige was then asked about potential plans for The Man Without Fear.
“There comes a time in contracts where, if a studio is done making the movies, [the characters] come home,” he explained. “That doesn’t mean we’re going to make another movie. But it means they’re back in the fold, which is where we want them to be.”
