Kevin Feige Says AVENGERS 3 Might Be Right For The CIVIL WAR Storyline

During the "Meet the Filmmakers" event in London, Marvel Studios' President of Production Kevin Feige says Civil War, [arguably]the preeminent Marvel story line of the last decade might be right for Avengers 3.

A while back, the Captain America screenwriters teased that they would have a relationship with Howard Stark and Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger so that if there was ever a movie based on the Civil War story line Cap could turn to Tony and say "I knew your father." Now we have words from the mastermind behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe which at least acknowledges that Civil War is definitely on the table in terms of being adapted into a feature film.

Feige also offered this update on Luke Cage and Black Panther. Looks like the two secret movies Marvel is working on won't be either of these guys. Feige also updates a few other characters and topics---

The Avengers is an upcoming American superhero film produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name. It is the sixth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is written and directed by Joss Whedon and features an ensemble cast, which includes Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson. In The Avengers, Nick Fury, director of the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D., recruits Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America to save the world from destruction.

Development of The Avengers began when Marvel Studios received a grant from Merrill Lynch in April 2005. After the success of the film Iron Man in May 2008, Marvel announced that The Avengers would be released in July 2011. With the signing of Scarlett Johansson in March 2009, the film was pushed back for a 2012 release. Whedon was brought on board in April 2010 and rewrote the screenplay that was originally written by Zak Penn. Production began in April 2011 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, before moving to Cleveland, Ohio in August 2011 and New York City in September 2011. The film was converted to 3D in post-production.
