Heres an new interview that Kevin Feige did with Collider.com

quote:

Collider: A lot of people are discussing Robert Downey Jr.ís contract and how it will impact the Avengers sequel and Iron Man movies. But I think the bigger question is, when does your contract end?

KEVIN FEIGE: Youíre the first person thatís ever asked me that question.

I think a lot of people should be asking that question because being honest, there is a reason why all the Marvel movies are good and I think it has your name on it.

FEIGE: Oh, thatís very nice. My contract negotiations are not nearly as exciting as Mr. Downeyís. Iím here for a while, certainly through Phase Two.

Do you see yourself still running Marvel in five years?

FEIGE: I donít know, the truth of the matter is, I always sort of set a goal or set a horizon line and look towards that. Then say, ďOnce I get to that horizon line I will see where we stand.Ē For a long time it was X-Men 2 and then for a long time it was Iron Man and Incredible Hulk Ė are we going to be a studio by then or not? Is it going to work or is it not? Then it was Avengers, now itís Avengers 2. So, two years after that, three years after that, I canít even begin to guess.

I put on Twitter and Facebook that I was going to be talking to you and there were a ton of people that submitted questions. Iím going to try to breeze through them, some of them are really good. First one: You guys have take directors that many studios have passed over and theyíre turning in fantastic movies. Whatís the secret formula that other studios are missing, in terms of these directors?

FEIGE: Itís the characters and the franchise, and the current atmosphere of appreciation for our films with the moviegoing audience. In other words, if we release an Iron Man movie, no matter what people would come to the theater right now. That might be different in a few years from now but right now, if you put out a movie called Iron Man, if you put out a movie called ďMarvel BlankĒ a certain amount of the moviegoing public is going to come to see it. Thatís a huge safety net, which then means itís not just about figuring out ďwhat do people want to go see?Ē People want to go see what we have right now Ė thank goodness, and we never take that for granted because the winds could change at any moment. Which is why we say, ďOkay, hereís this wonderful safety net. People want to come see our stuff, now we want that stuff to be interesting. We want them to be rewarded above and beyond just Ďoh, I want to see a suit flying around or I want to see somebody pick up a building.íĒ How do we make it more interesting than that? Not just for the audience, but for us.

Iíve been doing this for 13 years, I want it to be interesting every time, I want it to be different every time. And, as youíve heard me say before, we have the best pre-vis artists, the best concept artists, the best costume designers, the best production designers, the best visual effects supervisors, the best visual effects vendors in the world ready to work on our movie and do an amazing job and make them look as good if not better than any of the other movies out there. So, when we bring in the filmmaker, itís not to give us all of those things because we have all of those things. When we bring the filmmaker, we bring somebody to help us elevate the material with those things, to help us do something different with all of those resources at their disposal. When you talk to Shane [Black], you hear him talk a lot about that. Heís a guy whoís used to sitting in his bedroom typing on a laptop with ideas that pop out of his head. And then one time with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Ė which is spectacular Ė he was able to do that on a small scale. We said, ďDo that for our movie. Do that for something this scale, donít worry about what you think itíll cost or how you can pull it off, just write it.Ē With his co-writer Drew Pearce, they wrote some pretty spectacular sequences that we gave to the team to figure out how to accomplish.


Can we expect to have The Avengers 2 to have a subtitle or is it going to be called The Avengers 2?

FEIGE: I would say that if you look at the trend of our upcoming movie, Iron Man 3 is the only one that has a number. I like ďStar Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: Return of the JediĒ instead of ďStar Wars 2, Star Wars 3.Ē

With the world-wide success of the first Avengers movie and how itís one of the biggest movies of all time, how has that impacted the way youíre developing the sequel? You have to feel a little bit of pressure to top or equal what youíve already done.

FEIGE: Well Joss has said it on the record in the past, itís not about going bigger. Itís not about, ĎAnd this time there will be five more explosions in this section!í I mean certainly you want to up the ante, you want to exceed peopleís expectations, but I think there are various ways of doing that and Iron Man 3 is a very, very good test for us of doing exactly that. The first movie we make after The Avengers has our hero spending more time out of the suit than any of the other movies; that seems potentially counterintuitive to some people, but that was exactly why we did it. We didnít want to say, ĎOh now it has to be bigger and he fights 100 people in armored suits.í Yeah the action sequences are big, thereís more action in Iron Man 3 than in the other two movies, but at the same time itís a much deeper and a more exploratory character journey on the heels of our biggest spectacle with The Avengers.

Joss is looking at just that and now weíve been consistently talking about this leading up to Avengers, what is most interesting to us Ė and thatís why we hired Joss Whedon in the first place Ė is the interaction between the characters. Thatís more fun to us than the massive action scenes that are going to have to come with it and weíre going to have to figure out. Theyíre going to have to be clever and raise the bar. But already, the scenes that Joss has of just the characters sitting around interacting are hilarious. Theyíre awesome and moving and a notch or two above the first movie. To me, thatís where you want to top yourself.


I completely agree, the scenes between Robert and Mark Ruffalo are the things that I think most people are most looking forward to seeing in the sequel. Have you guys considered casting Dwayne Johnson in a Marvel movie?

FEIGE: I think yeah, I mean his name has come up in the past. Iím a gigantic fan of his, I think heís an incredible Ė I might have met him once a long time ago, but I havenít really met him. I donít really know him Ė but I think heís an unbelievable personality and an unbelievable sort of force of nature. Heís awesome in Pain & Gain, he was great in G.I. Joe, heís really kind of an amazing human being. His Twitterís always cool and he promotes the hell out of everything he does. I would love him to be part of the Marvel universe somewhere, someday.

What is the current status of a Doctor Strange movie?

FEIGE: Doctor Strange is something that I talk about often and itís sort of next up for us to dig into and explore. Our executive producer on Iron Man 3, having just gone through having done Captain America: The First Avenger and as I was finishing, he started working on the bones that would become Iron Man 3. Now that heís finished Iron Man 3, heís working on the bones that will become Doctor Strange. Now that Iron Man 3 is finished, some of our ďspare timeĒ is going to be debuted on trying to crack Strange.

So thatís a real priority for you guys.

FEIGE: Yeah. As we look past 2015, past Avengers 2 and Ant-Man, I think Doctor Strange should be one of the next movies in the years following that.

A lot of women asked me this question, are there any plans for more women superheroes such as Wasp, Captain Marvel, or any other characters from the Marvel universe?

FEIGE: Yes, yes there are. And even if you look at Avengers, if you look at Iron Man 3, Captain America: Winter Soldier that we have in production right now, all have strong female characters Ė stronger than I think people even wouldíve guessed. Itís a priority for us because we have an enormous amount of incredibly strong female characters in comics.

Do you see a woman superhero being the lead of a new franchise? Predominantly in the past, itís been a hard transition to get the primarily male superhero audience to come out for a female superhero. Do you think thatís something you guys will be able to crack or is it going to work over time?

FEIGE: I think over time, itís going to work. Iíve said in the past that you should choose a list of female action superhero movies that havenít worked. I donít believe they havenít worked because they had a female in the lead, I believe they didnít work because they werenít good. They werenít technically well done movies.

Is there anybody currently developing, writing a Falcon or War Machine spinoff movie?

FEIGE: No.

Have you guys cast who will be playing Thanos?

FEIGE: No.

Recently youíve talked about how certain characters, like Ghost Rider and Blade are back in the Marvel fold. Is Electra back with Marvel?

FEIGE: Electra is part of the Daredevil contract, I believe. I believe, donít quote me on that, Iíd have to check with legal and it would take a long time and Iíd have to get on the phone with business affairs, but I think sheís included under the Daredevil rights agreement.

Do you see a future where itís possible that something could be worked out with Fox or Sony where some of the characters that theyíve gotten can somehow be brought back into the Marvel fold when you guys are making a movie? Whether itíll be working together, or do you see itís never going to be together?

FEIGE: Thereís certainly nothing in the horizon that indicates that weíre going to be doing anything like that any time soon. But as Iíve said, Iíve been in Marvel for 13 years, and Iíve seen a lot. So, I would never say never when it comes to what we could do to characters on the screen.

Thereís been a lot of talk about who is in Guardians of the Galaxy. Who is officially cast in the movie, can you say?

FEIGE: I canít because I sometimes forget what weíve announced and what we havenít announced. As we did with Winter Soldier a few weeks ago, we will most likely do a start of production release in the next few months, once we start production, that announces and lays out everything official.

When and where do you shoot Guardians of the Galaxy?

FEIGE: We shoot it this summer in the United Kingdom.

The whole thing is being shot over in London and the surrounding areas?

FEIGE: That is correct. Weíre shooting in the studio space where we shot Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The First Avenger.

Disney has D23 and you guys have always gone to Comic-Con, are you planning on doing both or just one or the other?

FEIGE: The last time they had a D23, we did both Comic-Con and D23. I expect we do something similar for that. I mean, certainly Comic-Con is our traditional home for these kind of things and thatíll continue but we had a good time at the last D23. I suspect we will at this one as well.

If you could give any advice to DC and their Justice League movie, what would you tell them?

FEIGE: I donít know. Iím sure they have smart people over there who have a plan and know what theyíre doing. Man of Steel looks like itís going to be awesome and obviously Dark Knight is awesome. I donít know. Itís what I say all the time and have said over the years, which is, have confidence in the characters, believe in the source material, donít be afraid to stay true to all of the elements of the characters no matter how seemingly silly or crazy they are. I donít know, I think the Marvel characters have a bit of a leg up for all the reasons that Marvel fans are aware of in terms of the emotional complexity of the characters and the flawed nature of the characters. Those are obviously the elements we want to accentuate amongst all the action.

I think there have been a lot of great DC stories and there are a lot of great DC characters, and if they focus on those things the audience will be interested. It was a very unique model that we were lucky enough to be able to do Ė introducing each individual hero before introducing The Avengers. That, to me, is what was always interesting about The Avengers. The Avengers are not The Guardians of the Galaxy, are not The Dirty Dozen, where you spend a movie introducing each character and putting them together for the first time. The Avengers was cool because they were preexisting characters that teamed up for a big event. I think thatís why Justice League was cool, Justice League was first. Thatís what they did first in comic form.

ORIGINAL: porntrooper
The theory goes Trevor Mandarin is playing everyone and that (in scenes not shown on screen, and indeed not really hinted at in dialogue) in the years after Tony meets Geek Killian, Mandarin approaches Killian after learning of the Extremis research. However, he isn't approaching Killian as Mandarin or Trev but some other unseen force, most likely the 10 Rings and Raza from the original Iron Man movie. Raza and the 10 Rings, under direction from an unseen Mandarin begin supporting Killian and AIM, and drive the theory to him that he can become Mandarin and lead this organisation by using a puppet..... and here is where they introduce 'Trevor'. Trevor Mandarin is playing a part to keep himself distanced from the real goings on. Killian Mandarin thinks he is in charge, but he isn't. Trevor Mandarin isn't really caring about Tony (that's Killian's side project if you like. Trevor Mandarin is wanting to destabilise the US and ramps it up in the wake of the outing of aliens and gods and Avengers and shit like that. The suggestion is that Trev Mandarin may be getting saved for a follow up reveal in Avengers 2 or IM4.


Now that's what I would have liked to see. I envisioned the Mandarin as a cross between Genghis Khan and Osama bin Laden: terrorist/teacher, warrior, conqueror and mystic but without the Charlie Chan/Fu Manchu get-up. I just think it would've given that much more meaning to the backstory of Iron Man in regards to Tony's time as a captive in the caves and the creation of Iron Man. Since Killian has been revealed as the real Mandarin where the 10 Rings were just a made-up organisation, it takes away a bit from the events of the first film.


quote:

There just isnt anything presented on screen to suggest Trevor Mandarin is playing a bigger part in the whole thing and it seems like people defending the choices made in the movie by making up backstory that isn't there.


I'm not sure it's so much 'defending' as simply trying to 'make up'/cover for what they perceive as a flaw in the story, one with which I'm in full agreement.

quote:

Thre is a par tof me that hopes these crazy theories are true and that the Mandarin as presented in the first half of the movie can make some miraculous return in a future film. I think given the fact the MCU opened up to the 'cosmic' stuff suggested they could to a version of Mandarin with crazy rings of power without it feelign too out there. So, is Mandarin still out there and does Kinglsey get a second reveal in another movie?


This is something I'm banking on and at least it enables them to develop the character further whether it be a Slattery/Killian Mandarin.


quote:

The other thing that I guess potentially impacts on the future of the MCU is the removal of the shrapnel from Stark. Now, I dont recall how this all goes down and how things were set up with it in previous movies, but my understanding was that the Arc Reactor is his chest was acting as the thing to keep the shrapnel from his heart whilst also acting as the power source for whichever suit he was wearing (mk3, mk7 whatever) however, it seems (as IM3 seems increasingly reliant on a lack of power to the suit for getting Tony into scrapes) that the chest Arc Reactor isn't as important as it was made out in IM1. I liked the idea that it was his chest Arc Reactor that powered him, as it made a nice link between the man and the suit, the suit needs him and he needs the suit kinda thing. I dont recall how it was played out in IM2, other than the infection it was giving him (how the fuck did that resolve itself?) but with Tony having the shrapnel and Arc removed, is the MCU going to rehash things that keep happening in IM3 (Oh no! My suit is loosing power!) that result in a problem for Stark to overcome? I really hope there is a more interesting way around this and they find a way to keep the suit and it's power linked into Tony.


From what I recall, the original element that was used in the chest piece was palladium. Of course the electrochemical reaction from the chest piece released harmful chemicals into his body as you know. So Nick Fury/Black Widow gave him shots of lithium dioxide to abate the symptoms long enough for Stark to discover or 're-discover' the vibranium element. One which would act as the new replacement conductor for the chest piece.

Unless I'm mistaken the precedent for the chest piece removal comes from the comics doesn't it? Probably in the Extremis storyline. I think in the comics he has an artificial heart so quite possibly he had the same in IM3. It'll follow a similar thing now to IM3 as you said with the whole "the suit's running out of power!". I wouldn't be surprised if at the beginning of phase 3 (providing Iron Man carries on to a fourth solo film) we'll have another switch in regards to the chest piece/power source for the suits. It could go full circle. The funny thing with this development which I've read from other discussions is doesn't it demean what Tony said to Bruce Banner in the Avengers? He told Bruce that the chest piece enabled him to do great things and it was the only thing which kept him alive -- a "terrible privilege" -- ergo he has to live with it. Now that he's got rid of it, does that mean that Banner should try and get rid of the Hulk?

As soon as I saw him get rid of the chest piece I instantly thought of this exchange between Banner and Stark and yeah, for me, it does demean that great moment.

Yes, yes and.......um.....YES!

I kinda hate myself for liking Dwayne Johnson but he has got so much charisma and makes anything he is in at least 32% better than it would be otherwise! Just look at Fast 5........

Good on him, Black Widow aside the superhero count for Marvel Studios has been a sausage fest and I'm all for some more of the fairer sex strutting their stuff...that sounds a wee bit more sexist than intended.

Personally I was hoping for a Wasp or Ms/Captain Marvel presence in Avengers 2 but I guess at least we'll be getting Wasp in Ant Man (perhaps) and Scarlett Witch in Avengers 2. Plus Zoe Saldana and Karen Gillan in Guardians of The Galaxy.

As an aside am I the only one that couldn't give a rats ass about Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch appearing in Avengers 2? I mean the rumoured candidates to play them (Saorise Ronan and Aaron Johnson) are great but there are so many other characters I'd hoped to see in the mix before those two; especially considering their mutant heritage (which is an enormous part of their characters) will have to be ignored/very delicately sidestepped...kind of makes me think "Why include them at all?". Obviously Whedon has his plans and I'm sure it will all make sense but..really? They make more sense than the aforementioned Wasp, Ms Marvel, Black Panther et al? Hell, I'd be happier hearing that Pepper Potts becomes Rescue alongside War Machine debuting as new team members.

I'd have preferred Quicksilver and SW to stay with the X-Men films. Most of the interest with those two comes from their backstory ultimately.

Over on Latino Review (link below) they are reporting that three new movies will be released post Ant-Man on May 6th 2016, July 8th 2016 and May 7th 2017. The movies will be, Dr Strange (as many already supected), Black Panther and surprisingly a stand alone Silver Surfer movie.


http://latino-review.com/2013/07/03/stan-lee-confirms-black-panther-doctor-strange-movies/

Hmmmmmmm,......interesting! I like all these characters but I cant help but be most excited about Black Panther. It's been begging for the big screen treatment for aaaaaaages!!!

So - lets have some fun with the castings! I'll go first!

Dr Strange - Jim Caviezel/Joseph Feinnes

Black Panther - Billy Brown/Lee Thompson-Young

Silver Surfer - CGI/A Muppett!

I am stalking you artoo

AntMan!! fuck me!! I am surprised that pants has been given a movie but hey ho!.

I don't know much about Dr Strange but would love a decent Black Panther movie!. I am thinking of getting back into my concept drawing and would like to start with a character I know piss all about, so might have a bash at a modern Dr Strange!

I guess a good Silver-surfer origins could work?

Haha! Forum stalking - the evolution of harrassment!

I'm actually quite optimistic about Ant-Man given that it's Edgar Wright that's got the gig - he's a perfect fit for the chair! As far as playing Hank Pym/Ant Man I'm not sure. I dont think he has a specific set of traits or physical attributes that define him so any white male (or black male if you don't give a shit about the lore) could play him. I guess he'd have to be a bit of a science geek with a bit of leading man thrown in so someone like Karl Urban or even Matt Damon may be a good fit. I'm not saying they're both geeky or anything - just versatile!

Dr Strange will be a good one I reckon. If it wasn't for the Black Panther movie announcement I'd be well stoked about it! It's a labour of love for Kevin Feige also so I think we can expect a belter!

Silver Surfer is one of the few characters I don't know a whole lot about. I know the basic stuff like he was originally a humanoid from another planet called Norin Radd who sacrificed himself to save his planet from Galactus, or more accurately to save the love of his life from Galactus and so agreed to become his herald etc, but that's a difficult one to pull off if you ask me. He'd be better off turning up in Guardians of the Galaxy at the end as a post credit sequence to test the water - and then perhaps have him in a larger part in the sequel during Phase 4 when I'm in my 60's...........

Vin Diesel recently announced on his Facebook page that he had a meeting with Marvel to discuss an as yet unknown part. I had thought he may be voicing Rocket Raccoon in GOTG but this morning he updated his Facebook page (as the meeting is today apparently) with a picture of him standing in front of an Avengers print in which Ant-Man is VERY prominent! In the caption to the photo he also said something about having "tunnel vision", but it didn't really make all that much sense.

Vin Diesel likes to drop the odd hint and keep his fans teetering on the edge so do we think he will be talking about the part of Henry Pym/Ant Man in Edgar Wright's film, Vision in Avengers 2 or none of the above?

I had thought he may be voicing Rocket Raccoon in GOTG but this morning he updated his Facebook page (as the meeting is today apparently) with a picture of him standing in front of an Avengers print in which Ant-Man is VERY prominent! In the caption to the photo he also said something about having "tunnel vision", but it didn't really make all that much sense.

Vin Diesel likes to drop the odd hint and keep his fans teetering on the edge so do we think he will be talking about the part of Henry Pym/Ant Man in Edgar Wright's film, Vision in Avengers 2 or none of the above?

I don't want to see Vin Diesel in anything! ever!!

Nothing on his facebook page ever makes sense... I feel the more stupider reading it and looking at those photos (as much of an average fan i am).

I've liked pretty much everything he's done with the exception of The Pacifier! I even liked The Chronicles of Riddick!

Different strokes for different folks. I like the idea of him voicing Rocket Racoon but couldn't really see him as either Hank Pym or The Vision. I remain open minded however.....

Agreed. He posts a lot of stuff about love and peace n'all that (as well as inexplicable growling "Grrrrr" etc) and then goes and stabs a bunch of people in his movies (I'm mainly thinking of Riddick here!)

Unless I'm mistaken the precedent for the chest piece removal comes from the comics doesn't it? Probably in the Extremis storyline. I think in the comics he has an artificial heart so quite possibly he had the same in IM3. It'll follow a similar thing now to IM3 as you said with the whole "the suit's running out of power!". I wouldn't be surprised if at the beginning of phase 3 (providing Iron Man carries on to a fourth solo film) we'll have another switch in regards to the chest piece/power source for the suits. It could go full circle. The funny thing with this development which I've read from other discussions is doesn't it demean what Tony said to Bruce Banner in the Avengers? He told Bruce that the chest piece enabled him to do great things and it was the only thing which kept him alive -- a "terrible privilege" -- ergo he has to live with it. Now that he's got rid of it, does that mean that Banner should try and get rid of the Hulk?


As soon as I saw him get rid of the chest piece I instantly thought of this exchange between Banner and Stark and yeah, for me, it does demean that great moment.


I think the point of that whole thing was that he'd come to rely on it, and by the end of IM3 he realised he didn't need to. He was using the suits as a defense mechanism because in The Avengers he was surrounded by superheroes with actual superpowers and he was reminded that he was just a man in a suit. The whole arc of his development in IM3 is him coming to terms with his limits and realising what the important things in his life are. Up to that point, he was scared to have the shrapnel removed because it would mean he didn't need the arc reactor any more.

Don't forget that the suits can be powered with their own chest piece, he doesn't need the one in his chest to power a suit. In The Avengers, Tony compares his chest piece to the Hulk, but for me, Tony's equivalent of the Hulk is his suit, not the reactor. He can still have a suit (we've seen Obadiah, Whiplash, Rhodey and Pepper all wear suits so we know they have their own power source, and some of these characters have even worn the same suit Tony wears at some point, so I assume they have a separate power source from his chest piece even when he's wearing them) and IM3 also showed us his new, nifty trick where he powers the suit without actually being in it.

So Avengers: Age of Ultron! Didn't see that one coming. Depending in the origin then, they better introduce Hank Pym pretty soon, as Ant-Man is scheduled to come out after this film. The obvious film would be Cap 2 with his link to Shield maybe, or even the tv series. Introducing Pym and Ultron in the same movie which is to include SW, quicksilver and the regular gang seems a tad crammed, especially as you're dealing with a few origin takes there. Seems crazy now that they decided not to name-check Pym in Thor as they didn't want too many references!

I'd love to see a decent X-Force movie. I think Remender's recently finished run on Uncanny X-Force has more than enough material that would translate well to the big screen (The Apocalypse Solution or the Dark Angel Saga could be fucking epic) but the inclusion of Wolverine as a main protagonist may be a bit problematic seeing as he already has his own franchise and a pretty large part in another ongoing franchise. I guess if you got rid of him you could beef up the parts of Deadpool and Fantomex though.

Personally though I'm not particularly enthused about Millar running the show, I've never been completely convinced by him as a writer. For every Red Son or Superior he writes there's an Ultimates 1 or Civil War to balance it out.

Out of all the Marvel characters Vin Diesel could be, Groot is probably the best. Doesn't require too much range.
