Kevin Feige Updates the MCU and Spiderman
Avengers: Age of Ultron is less then a month away from hitting theaters and Kevin Fiege gives us an update on Phase 3 and Marvel’s plan for Spider-Man.
Kevin Fiege has been busy as of late giving several interviews recently updating Marvel’s plan with phase three and the studio’s newest hero recently becoming a part of the MCU in an agreement with Sony.
If your a Spider-Man fan you’ve had reason to wonder what Marvel might be able to do for the wall crawler and if Marvel will force us to watch another origin story. Well according to Feige we won’t have to, thankfully.
“In Spider-Man’s very specific case, where there have been two retellings of that origin in the last whatever it’s been – [thirteen] years – for us we are going to take it for granted that people know that, and the specifics. It will not be an origin story. But, with great power comes great responsibility.
It is inherent to who his character is. But we want to reveal it in different ways and spend much more time focusing on this young high school kid in the MCU dealing with his powers.
There is a young kid [already] running around New York City in a homemade version of the Spider-Man costume in the MCU, you just don’t know it yet,”
Feige also talked about Spider-Man’s look in the MCU and how this version of Spider-Man will be different from the previous two.
“I mean look, I was more involved in the Raimi ones, and think they did a very good job. But that being said, we’ve already designed the costume, which is different than any of the ones that have come before. And yet ours is classic Spidey, as I think you’ll see.”
As far as “Phase 3”, Feige touched base on several of Marvel’s films that will lead us up to the “Avengers: Infinity War” movies.
Captain America: Civil War will be featuring several heroes from the Avengers plus new ones like Black Panther and was asked if “Civil War” was a Captain America sequel or just another Avengers movie. Feige’s said it was both, but the Captain was the main focus.
Doctor Strange is set for release on November 4, 2016, Feige says he’s excited about bringing him to the big screen.
“Director Scott Derrickson, and the producing team are on scout right now. They’re just finishing scouting in New York City for certain buildings that Doctor Strange inhabits. They’re on their way to London where the primary principal photography starts in November.”
Thor: Ragnarok hammers its way into theaters in November of 2017 and was asked if Loki will be the main antagonist.
“I would say an integral role for sure; it’s one of the great things about the franchise is Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston.”
Avengers: Infinity War movies will bring Marvel’s phase three to an end. Feige said it was to soon to discuss anything specific, but did have this to say about the Infinity Wars.
“The intention is to do two distinct, standalone movies as we do all the time. But because they are such shared elements, it felt appropriate to do [two-parts]. And we hadn’t done it before, so we thought it was cool to do sort of sub-groupings like that. I wouldn’t call it one story that’s cut in half. I would say it’s gonna be two distinct movies.”
