It’s learned that Kevin Feige has mapped out a plan for Marvel Studios through 2028.
Kevin Feige, the face of Marvel Studios and its president as well as producer, told Business Week that they recently put together an outline for the future of the Marvel movies.
It’s mentioned that there is a map on the wall of Feige’s office.
“What’s happening back there? I can sort of see it,’ ” he laughs. “They printed out a new one recently that went to 2028.”
Some of those movies that are part of the plan are known as Captain America: The Winter Soldier debuts this week; Guardians of the Galaxy has an August 1st release; The Avengers 2 opens May 1, 2015 and Ant-Man opens July 31, 2015.
Beyond that it’s pure speculation as it seems a Doctor Strange movie is in development with possible movies for Black Panther and Inhumans.
The article also mentions Kevin Feige’s start in the world of comic book movies with X-Men. As many fans realize about Feige and Marvel Studios, they tend to stick closer to the source material. Feige had the following to say about working on the first X-Men movie:
“I would hear people, other executives, struggling over a character point, or struggling over how to make a connection, or struggling over how to give even surface-level depth to an action scene or to a character,” Feige recalled. “I’d be sitting there reading the comics going, ‘Look at this. Just do this. This is incredible.’ ”
Likewise, Marvel Chief Creative Office and former EIC of the comics, Joe Quesada, also stated there is a need to please the hardcore fans.
“Really, you have to start with the loyalists,” Quesada said. “If the loyalists reject it, then we feel that everyone is going to reject it.”
