Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige took part in a live Q&A over at The Los Angeles Times: Hero Complex tonight, and what follows are the main points that were brought up in that conversation. All of them are pretty damned interesting, and there is plenty of updates on upcoming and existing movies, as well as a fair few confirmations/debunkings of recent rumours!

Iron Man will have a new set of armor in The Avengers:

"Joss would kill me if I gave anything away, but I will say that the evolution you saw his armor take in IM2 will continue in The Avengers."

Donald Blake (Thor's alter-ego in the comic books) will be mentioned in the upcoming movie:

"People looking for a reference to Don Blake in the Thor film will find one."

When will we see a trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger?

"Working on the Cap trailer now. You should be seeing one in the new year."

When asked about the chances of seeing The Invaders in Captain America, he confirmed that they wouldnt feature:

"While there's no Invaders, there's lots of Howling Commandos!"

Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury will also not appear in the WWII scenes of that movie.

"We're keeping Nick Fury as portrayed by the great Sam Jackson just in the modern era for now."

Marvel Studios have the rights to The Punisher regained and are currently figuring out what to do with the property.

"Punisher's back in house, and various plans are in the works."

Plans are still underway for an Iron Fist adaptation, with a script currently in development:

"A very talented writer is currently working on a draft."

The Iron Fist script is based, in part, on the Ed Brubaker/Matt Fraction series:

"The movie is definitely inspired by that great run."

When asking fans which female character they'd like to see in a movie, Ms. Marvel was a popular suggestion. Feige named one of his own favorites:

"I love Jessica Jones. Good choice!"

On the subject of Luke Cage, Feige was met with a several suggestions for Isaiah Mustafa:

"Love the old spice guy!"

Ant-Man is still in development with Edgar Wright attached to the screenplay:

"Edgar was here a few days ago. He's already working on the next draft."

Moon Knight is one character for which a potential adaptation has been discussed at length:

"Moonknight's a challenging, but extremely interesting character. We've been discussing various versions of it for years."

Black Panther is being worked on, but details are scarce.

"Things are in the works."
