Kevin Feige On The Chances Of An AVENGERS/GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Movie And More

Kevin Feige On The Chances Of An AVENGERS/GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Movie And More

Marvel have just announced a slate of release dates right up until 2019; could an Avengers/Guardians of the Galaxy crossover be among them? After the jump, you'll find some teasing comments about exactly that from Kevin Feige as well as more dismissals of any inter-studio deals...

In an interview with IGN, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was asked whether the literal expansion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as they head into outer space next month with Guardians of the Galaxy means we'll see an epic team-up between that group and Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Many fans are convinced that the third Avengers movie which feature the Guardians as they come together to take on Thanos, but Feige remained coy. "I don’t know. Part of the fun of the comics is that could happen. Any character could interact with any other character because they inhabit the same time period and the same universe. And certainly it is the inclusion of Thanos most specifically that is a declaration to audiences who are paying attention that this is connected to those other universes. Part of the fun is that it could happen someday. I don’t know when that would be. Or maybe I know and I’m not going to tell you!"

There has been a lot of speculation that we'll see the Hulk team with the Guardians for some sort of loose adaptation of Planet Hulk before this happens of course, so there could be a good reason why Feige is being careful with his words here (not to mention the fact that Marvel ARE incredibly secretive). We'll likely hear more at next week's San Diego Comic-Con, especially as the studio now have a total of six unrevealed titles. One team-up which won't be happening anytime soon of course is Marvel and Fox or Marvel and Sony, something which the producer was quick to reiterate.

"My answer to that question has always been the same, which is when I started at Marvel 14 years ago the notion of us becoming our own studio, becoming more successful than other studios doing this, and bringing The Avengers to the screen, would have seemed like the pipe dream of all pipe dreams. And because we are sitting here talking because this has all happened, I’m not going to rule out anything. It has been unbelievable – the Marvel experience for me in particular over the years, so anything’s possible. But I would say for the immediate future, Fox is very busy building their X-Men universe and redoing the Fantastic Four universe. Sony is well underway with their Spider-Man plans. And we clearly have a long-term vision for the cinematic universe. And thankfully have so many characters and so many possibilities that we don’t find ourselves in a position going ‘Will we ever get these other characters in here because we don’t know what to do.’ There’s lots to do. "

No real surprises there then, and the only way we're ever going to see Captain America and Wolverine or Iron Man and Spider-Man (to name just two examples) together on the big screen is if Disney and Marvel Studios somehow regain the rights. That is something which may never happen, but Kevin Feige seems more than happy with the characters they do own right now!

Wasn't this posted yesterday or this morning?

NightWatcher posted it about 3 hours ago
Prime - 7/18/2014, 6:34 PM
We all know we will see a Avengers and a GOTG movie. Too bad about Fox and Sony.
IronMountaineer - 7/18/2014, 6:37 PM
I wonder if Fiege just lies awake at night laughing, when he realizes that he knows the whole general plan for the MCU, and we don't.

That jackass
NightWatcher - 7/18/2014, 6:38 PM
I posted this earlier today and it got taken down, never got a reason on my e-mail either.
MarvelFan15 - 7/18/2014, 6:38 PM
Here's what I think will happen for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Okay. Here it goes:
1) "Ant-Man" - Confirmed for 7/17/15
2) "Captain America 3" - Confirmed for 5/6/16
3) "Doctor Strange" - Likely to be confirmed for 7/8/16 at SDCC 2014
4) "Thor: Ragnarok" - Likely to be confirmed for 5/5/17 at SDCC 2014
5) "Black Panther" - Likely to be confirmed for 7/28/17 at SDCC 2014
6) "Planet Hulk" Likely to be confirmed for 11/3/17 at SDCC 2014
7) "Black Widow Solo Movie" - 5/4/18
8) "Marvel's The Inhumans" - 11/2/18
9) "Marvel's Avengers: War of Two Universes" - 5/3/19 - End of Phase 3 of MCU

Oh and for "The Avengers 3" for May 3, 2019, I hope it will be titled "Avengers: War of Two Universes" where we will see the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Avengers team-up to battle Thanos and his Infinity Gauntlet along with his minions including Ronan, Nebula, Korath, Loki, The Other, and.... wait for it.... RED SKULL RETURNING AS COSMIC SKULL! OH YEAH, BABY! WHOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kevin Fiege, are you planning to add Spider-man into an Avengers movie soon?
NightWatcher - 7/18/2014, 6:41 PM
MrBlackJack - 7/18/2014, 6:42 PM
Obviously the Guardians and Avengers are going to cross over (more than likely in Avengers 3).
nikgrid - 7/18/2014, 6:43 PM
F.UCK NO! Guardians looks awesome! But tie it into the "grounded' Avengers movie and it'll look ridiculous, it'd b like having Star Wars into Batman...Sure it would be kind of cool, but ultimately it's ridiculous.
JoshWilding - 7/18/2014, 6:43 PM
@NightWatcher: You most definitely did get an explanation in the email sent to you; it was because your article was completely plagiarised and contained only two single lines of your own words.
ALegendaryPanda - 7/18/2014, 6:44 PM
They're going to cross over at some point, no question about that.

I'd like to see an Avengers/Defenders movie. I hope they announce who's playing Iron Fist at SDCC.
NightWatcher - 7/18/2014, 6:47 PM

No email was sent to me, and I wrote everything in that article, and that was much more than two lines, if the article wasn't deleted we would all see that, but its fine I understand what your trying to do.

Carry on.
kakinurmawth - 7/18/2014, 6:48 PM
Sooo, no. Marvel, Fox and Sony are all doing their own shit. Surprise surprise.

I would love to see all those titles in Marvel's hands...I still get sad if I think to much about it.
MrCBM56 - 7/18/2014, 6:49 PM
The teaser pic, where is it from?

every mcu character in one movie would give people heart attacks.

kicksilver18 - 7/18/2014, 6:51 PM
They should do guardians of the galaxy 2 in some of the now confirmed dates, because they need to introduce Adam Warlock. And then the connection between Guardians and Avengers.
NightWatcher - 7/18/2014, 6:52 PM

JoshWilding - 7/18/2014, 6:52 PM
Nice try at spinning the facts to try and make me look bad @NightWatcher, but your article was deleted 8 or 9 hours ago because of the reasons I stated. You were also sent a notification email as is anyone else who has a post removed from the site. You had a banner image, one line of text, a big block of BOLD quotes and one more line of text followed by another banner image. Oh, and it was in a huge font size to actually look like there was something substantial there too.
NightWatcher - 7/18/2014, 6:53 PM

Its from the TV Spot that was released yesterday.
ruadh - 7/18/2014, 6:53 PM
I like my articles with little to no plagiarism...
CuddlyCereal - 7/18/2014, 6:54 PM
I know the new gotg is doing all the crossover stuff, but I liked it better when the Guardians were kind of their own thing.
McGee - 7/18/2014, 6:55 PM
Oh shit!

Abary - 7/18/2014, 6:55 PM
If you don't get a email, you'll need to adjust your settings because I had the problem of not getting a single email from CBM regarding a deleted post until I managed to fix that.

You hear that Pasto? NightWatcher movin' in on your turf!
OdinsMissingEye - 7/18/2014, 6:55 PM
I just hope RDJ is still Iron Man when there is a meet up with the GOTG just so I can see his reaction when he meet's Rocket.
ruadh - 7/18/2014, 6:58 PM
Isn't commenting on an article you didn't read the same as commenting on an article you DID read, as far as hits etc goes?
GliderMan - 7/18/2014, 6:59 PM
This is just a bad news day for me. GOTG and the Avengers are looking more and more likely to team up in A3 (something I don't want), Arrow and Flash are confirmed not to be in the DCCU, and now he's pretty much saying there's no chance of X-Men/Spider-Man/FF appearing in the MCU anytime soon.

I'm about to give up on superhero movies.

Anyway.. my predictions:
Captain America 3 2016
Dr. Strange 2016
Thor 3 2017
Hulk 2 2017
GOTG 2 2017
Avengers 3 2018
Captain Marvel 2018
Captain America 4 2019

CuddlyCereal - 7/18/2014, 6:59 PM
And I'm still mad at Steve McNiven for turning this

Into this

Wtf! I know it's supposed to be a throwback to his original costume, but we all know the Annihilation/2008 version is way cooler.
AlexanderLykins - 7/18/2014, 7:02 PM
GliderMan - 7/18/2014, 7:03 PM
@CuddlyCereal I think he puts the helmet on at some point in the movie. Maybe I'm wrong though.
JoshWilding - 7/18/2014, 7:03 PM
Here's an example of @NightWatcher's stellar work for all you budding editors out there. My favourite bit is when he misspells Scarlett Johansson's name!

MrCBM56 - 7/18/2014, 7:04 PM
@NightWatcher Thanks!
Abary - 7/18/2014, 7:07 PM
Johansson's name misspelled, "sat" is capitalized, only one sentence in between each quote, an extra quotation mark for some reason...

Oh, and look that this part: "what the biggest think your looking forward to see"

There's three spelling errors in just that one sentence. You've done better NightWatcher, I know you have.
CuddlyCereal - 7/18/2014, 7:08 PM

Not everything revolves around the movies.
3DOldskool - 7/18/2014, 7:11 PM
They're not going to add Spider-man to the Avengers/GotG right?
