Kevin Feige Reveals Marvel Has Movies Planned To 2028
But doesn't say which ones...

Kevin-Feige-Reveals-Marvel-Has-Movies-Planned-To-2028

Though he usually prefers to stay in the background overseeing the movies and making decisions on characters, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige is sometimes called upon to do press. In a new profile of the executive, he’s revealed a few nuggets about the company’s upcoming plans.

Naturally, Feige is keen to keep spoilers to a minimum, but when Bloomberg Businessweek’s reporter notices a map of planned future Marvel movies, the famous far-reaching plan for Feige and co comes to light again.

“It’s like looking through the Hubble telescope. You go, ‘What’s happening back there? I can sort of see it,’” says Feige. “They printed out a new one recently that went to 2028.” Nothing is said about the movies further in the distance, but we know that named films are planned at least through 2016 with a third Captain America adventure.

There have been several new characters rumoured to be joining the onscreen ranks, with Doctor Strange’s named dropped in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and others set for the small screen via Netflix’s Defenders series. Plus there are the sequels to the existing heroes, with Thor likely to score another film and, in the Feige profile, a reference to potential Guardians Of The Galaxy spin-offs should the movie be successful and  new characters in Avengers: Age Of Ultron being primed for potential standalone adventures. There's more within the piece itself so check it out – but beware minor spoilers.

I wonder what's in store 10 years from now from Marvel. Probably a remake of something like that More

@Oroborous To reboot is not one of the options or recasting for that matter. Some of the Avengers will be replaced if not all of them. Which Marvel may already are working on. Like introducing new heroes for the MCU with the upcoming tv-series on Netflix and the post-Avengers 2 solo movies. As I said before these new heroes will later act as an replacement for the current Avengers team. More

And who cares if Winter Soldier becomes Captain America it just sounds like a loophole to a reboot. More

Hubrisman.
I think the optimism of you fanboys expecting long term character arcs will be beyond what your average film goer can stomach. Feige may well be planning up to 2028 but I'll give it another 4 years before audiences abandon the superhero bandwagon because of boredom. Even Chris Evans is dropping out when his contract expires.

Thank Goodness!
I had visions (bad ones) of, at the end of Phase 3, it would all get rebooted. I'm glad to read that doesn't seem to be the case. Rebooted characters but not story lines sound like the order of the day. The Winter Soldier eventually becoming Captain America anyone! More

@Oroborous please no more reboots! I hope Marvel will be smart enough to follow the evolution of the characters as well as the evolution of the people playing the characters. More

Time makes fools of us all.
I wonder what is going to happen in years to come when the current actors get old, or bored. Will they recast them, kill them off, or just reboot the whole universe all over again? More
