In the wake of the recent recasting rumors and the contract extensions over at Marvel, Kevin Feige has come out and said that spin-off films for The Falcon and War Machine are not in the works. While he hasn't said they never will get a spin-off film, Feige says for now Marvel have bigger fish to fry.

Collider Reports:
Steve asked Feige if anybody at Marvel is currently developing or writing a possible Falcon or War Machine spinoff movie, to which the Marvel President responded with a simple “No.” That doesn’t mean that we absolutely won’t see a Falcon or War Machine movie sometime in the future, but it doesn’t look like those films are in the cards anytime soon. There has been talk of a possible Black Widow or Hawkeye movie in the past, but it’s unknown if those films are currently being developed.

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase Two by 2013venjix

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is a film franchise and shared fictional universe that is the setting of superhero films independently produced by Marvel Studios, based on characters that appear in publications by Marvel Comics. The shared universe of the films, much like the Marvel Universe in comic books, was established by crossing over common plot elements, settings, cast, and characters.

The first film to be released in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was Iron Man (2008), followed by The Incredible Hulk (2008), Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor (2011), Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), Marvel's The Avengers (2012), and Iron Man 3 (2013). Five additional films are in various stages of development as of May 2013: Thor: The Dark World (2013) is in post-production, Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) is filming, Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) and The Avengers 2 (2015) are in pre-production, and Ant-Man (2015) is in the early stages of development.

The films within the Marvel Cinematic Universe have received both critical and commercial success, and the franchise as a whole ranks as the third highest-grossing film franchise of all time. Outside of feature films, the franchise has expanded into comic books, a series of short films called "Marvel One-Shots", and the upcoming television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

iron patriot would need a paint job.
StarYeezus - 5/7/2013, 7:41 PM
Is this even a surprise?
ATrueHero1987 - 5/7/2013, 7:42 PM
Good. They didn't don't need movies. I'm still waiting on the Black Panther movie.
WesleyGibson - 5/7/2013, 7:48 PM
I didn't think they would.
TheSuperguy - 5/7/2013, 7:48 PM
I wanna see Doctor Strange, Luke Cage, Black Panther, and Daredevil, Punisher, and Ghost Rider reboots first.
TheRationalNerd - 5/7/2013, 7:51 PM
Knew it!!!

I don't think a Falcon spin-off would hold much weight. However a War-Machine spin-off could honestly work but it would have to be a one shot type thing.

I'm all for seeing the Cyborg War Machine. I would love to see this happen to him in Iron Man 4. However I fear that both Downey and Cheadle will be recast by then.







TheRationalNerd - 5/7/2013, 7:56 PM
I also think that a Black Widow and Hawkeye film would be boring... They were so bland in the Avengers. Except during the end of course. However if they were to explain Widow's ties with Hydra I would be interested. But a film would be too big for these characters. Even a Shield movie would seem bland. Who could possibly be the antagonist and what would the plot resolve around. A War Machine film featuring Rhodey working for shield would be great! Sam Jackson and Cheadle on the big screen together would be great!
maryboo - 5/7/2013, 8:00 PM
Of course not, since Marvel apparently hate black characters. We're getting a film about a talking raccoon and tree before Black Panther or Luke Cage in case you needed proof.
TonyChu - 5/7/2013, 8:08 PM
Can we get at least get one black superhero?
TonyChu - 5/7/2013, 8:12 PM
Of course no one wants a Falcon movie but a War Machine movie would be great. Or at least put him in an Avengers movie or Secret/West Coast Avengers film. And for the love of God can we get a [frick]ing Black Panther movie.
UltimateTypeface - 5/7/2013, 8:14 PM
good!

They would suck
Jollem - 5/7/2013, 8:16 PM
not surprising at all
TheRationalNerd - 5/7/2013, 8:18 PM
@maryboo and @TonyChu

PREAAAAAAAAAAACH!!!



Only way we'll ever get to see Black Characters on screen is if they're starring as the side kicks!

Feige himself had this to say about Black Panther a while ago...

“T’Challa “has a lot of the same characteristics of a Captain America: great character, good values.” But the movie might be difficult to pull off, he said, because of having to create Wakanda from the ground up. “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.”

WTF!!?? If you can do a cosmic film set in Space why can't a grounded, different cultural aspect work as well?? I have faith that Black Panther will appear by Phase 3, but I don't want it to be rushed. I read they have the script ready, its time to cast and get the production going!!!

In Nick Fury Agent of SHIELD it could be pretty cool having a young Nick Fury from the seventies fighting alongside Howard Stark against Scorpio
Ocelot - 5/7/2013, 8:46 PM
@maryboo I guess that means that Marvel also hate asian, latino and female characters
AUSSYACE - 5/7/2013, 8:51 PM
Of course they are not going to waste their time on making any movies of their D Grade characters...

It would just be an epic fail and no one would go and see them...
sameoldthing - 5/7/2013, 9:27 PM
I'm the whitest guy alive..I HATE rap music people.
Having said that...THEY GOTTA MAKE "BLACK PANTHER" MOVIE!

Before ANY other Avenger past or present,one of the coolest Superheros regardless if his skin color is Black Panther!

Dr. Strange would be a cool film,Ant-Man seems like a fun film but Black Panther is badass personified & done correctly,that movie would RULE!
JohnLamb - 5/7/2013, 9:47 PM
Not surprised at all.
Ramiel - 5/7/2013, 9:52 PM
Are the blacks now complaining about not seeing a black superhero headlining a movie? Boohoo! As much as I am a fan of War Machine, only Black Panther deserves a solo movie - and that probably won't happen until Phase IV.
TonyChu - 5/7/2013, 10:06 PM
@TheHeat Wow you just called us the blacks, no were the fans.
TheRationalNerd - 5/7/2013, 10:50 PM
TheHeat

No sh** genius! lol :/ If you would get Thor's hammer from out of your a** you would see the lack of action and films most African American superheroes don't receive!

You already have your (Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Doctor Strange, Antman, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Punisher, Ghost Rider (sadly),)

Let us complain all we want, after all they still haven't done Luke Cage, Blade (modern) and Black Panther any justice. It's only a few but it'll do for now...
TheRationalNerd - 5/7/2013, 10:52 PM
@TonyChu

That's right man, you better let him know! lol
TheRationalNerd - 5/7/2013, 10:54 PM
@Khan:

Thanks for understanding man! I'm such a huge fan of all races of heroes, but when we all see an open door for at LEAST Black Panther to appear I think it's only right we voice our opinions on it!

Again I tip my hat to you sir! Would post a gif but I got finals tomorrow! Much power and love to ya bro!
Ramiel - 5/7/2013, 11:02 PM
TBW,

As a Hispanic, why should I care about the lack of action and films consisting of black superheroes? At least, Marvel Studios has done more for black superheroes (War Machine, Falcon, Heimdall, Fury and Black Panther in the future) than most other studios. You may resume your crying now.
AmazingFantasy - 5/7/2013, 11:11 PM
[frick]
Logan5 - 5/7/2013, 11:40 PM
..you?

Logan5 - 5/7/2013, 11:44 PM
We give a top.., we give a bottom.., all the while giving everyone something to hold onto in between.., or 'ef it man and just go with the numbers: these characters get spinoffs? Panther and Ant-man did sh!t in the '70's and early '80's?

bluedude - 5/7/2013, 11:52 PM
make a damn black panther movie already that should be nxt right after antman! Its way more important than dr.strange IMO
Luigi - 5/7/2013, 11:57 PM
I love Don Cheadle but War Machine's method of attack would be way to violent for a PG-13 flick.
SugarYumYum - 5/7/2013, 11:59 PM
Well, duh. There are tons more important characters that need to get on screen they'd be stupid to waste their time and resources on one-off's for sidekicks.
Inhuman - 5/7/2013, 11:59 PM
Obvious answer. I could name you 8 superheroes that havent even been introduced in the MCU yet that deserve solo films before Falcon or War Machine lol. Such a stupid question to ask Feige. Should have asked him when is Black Panther coming out
Inhuman - 5/8/2013, 12:01 AM
@Remy, I bet all my chips will get a Black Panther film in Phase 3. Im not worried at all
Inhuman - 5/8/2013, 12:02 AM
@Remy, you know its going to be Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Thor 3, Captain America 3, and The Avengers 3 for Phase 3
BlackHulk - 5/8/2013, 12:03 AM
Official Feige translator = Marvel will not invest money into comic book movies where lead characters are of color unless that movie can make Iron Man numbers. Sorry Black Panther, Luke Cage, Falcon and War Machine Fans". Please see through the bs folks. When the excuse for not doing a Black Panther movie was that creating Wakanda was hard, I threw my B.S. Card on that one a while back.
BlackHulk - 5/8/2013, 12:06 AM
And as a fan, I would rather that those super heros get their time to shine instead of producers trying to pacify fans by rewriting historically white characters as black. Im just saying...
Inhuman - 5/8/2013, 12:06 AM
@BlackHulk, Yea when I heard that I was like what?! You can make frost giants, dark elves, a talking raccoon with a gun, and a talking tree, but you cant make an advanced african nation in the unexplored areas of Africa? I called BS too.
yingyangpalms - 5/8/2013, 12:06 AM
Cheadle doesnt seem like a Soldier to me. He's too nice guy like for the part.
Michael Jai White would've been a bad ass War Machine.

I don't like the way Marvel, WB and every other studio keeps non whites in the side kick mode while only White Guys and women get the meaty roles.

We need to get to the day were we stop matching colors with comics and give non whites opportunities for the big parts like Batman and etc.

As a white guy I'm embarrassed by what I'm seeing. Even when a black guy gets a big part its dumbed down with tongue in cheek comedy.

I'd like to see a Superman film someday where hes black, Lois is not black just because he is and no one seems to care, notice or mention Superman is black because they just see a man.
MightyZeus - 5/8/2013, 12:24 AM
Good, there only second class characters and side kicks.

Should focus there attention on Gotg, Doctor Strange, Moon Knight and Ghost Rider.
NeoBaggins - 5/8/2013, 12:31 AM
Logan5 - 5/8/2013, 1:01 AM
What Marvel should put onscreen. Ant-Man(before I could afford the mattel '84 Secret War figures I cut out silouhettes from various Tales to Astonish and other Amazing Spiderman books.., no sh!t.., I know). GOTG. Nova. Black Panther(if flows with the narrative and not forced). Daredevil. Punisher(3 and counting). Adam Warlock.
