Kevin Feige On What Marvel Studios Wants To Explore With The HULK
Our last dregs of Entertainment Weekly's coverage on Marvel Studios' Phase II plans and beyond. Feige briefly and noncommittally touches on Doctor Strange but also has some interesting yet abstract comments about the future of the Hulk.
In case you missed it earlier this week, Entertainment Weekly revealed an in-depth, wide-covering feature on Marvel Studios' plans for Phase II and ABC's S.H.I.E.L.D. show. Here's a rundown of where you can find all that info.
• New CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Details And Concept Art Revealed
• Tony Stark Cameo In Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Robert Downey Jr. Says Maybe
• Kevin Feige Teases THE AVENGERS 2 And THOR: THE DARK WORLD (New Image)
• ANT-MAN Update From Kevin Feige, GHOST RIDER Has Returned To Marvel!
• Zoë Saldaña Confirmed For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
• Kevin Feige On Chris Pratt's Casting In GOTG; Confirms Dave Bautista As Drax
• EW Reveal Their IRON MAN 3 Cover; Confirm Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch For AVENGERS 2!
All that came from one spread, kudos to EW. Now, lets get to the last bit of remaining info which is in the print edition of that issue. What remains looks beyond Phase II and at what comes after The Avengers sequel slated for 2015. On Doctor Strange, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige stated, "Within the next year or so we'll really start the advanced planning on post - Avengers 2, and I would love Strange to be a part of that. There's a whole supernatural/magic dimension going on in Marvel comics that we haven't ever touched on." His statement is pretty much in line with what was reported earlier this week from other media outlets. However, it's a noticeable step back from his previous statement in January where he said Doctor Strange was "definitely" going to be one of the Phase III films. With a number of character rights recently returning to Marvel Studios, has that made Doctor Strange's Phase III roster spot less certain?
Moving on to Hulk and a potential solo film, Feige stated, " There's no script in the works or anything, but we are talking about it. All the Hulk energy right now is on Avengers 2, but Mark Ruffalo is signed up [for more films]. What we're excited about exploring and expanding is Mark - and Bruce Banner is not in Planet Hulk at all. The fun of Hulk is his interaction with humans." An interesting statement and one to sure rev the speculation engine of the interweb. Get your wheels spinning now and take your thoughts to the comment section below.
