Marvel Studios’ head honcho (and ginger badass) Kevin Feige revealed his plans for Phase 3 in a recent interview, including the announcement of 7 movies for Phase 3. Compared to the 6 flicks we received in Phase 1, and the 5 we’re promised for Phase 2, Feige’s lofty promise is a bit off putting.
Does this mean even more superhero flicks will be crammed into the typical 3-4 year schedule allotted to each phase, which are typically capped with the release of an Avengers movie? Or perhaps they’re stretching out the time gap; will Phase 3 transform into a 5 year endeavor?
I wonder which flicks Marvel Studios will choose to fill that roster. If they’ve already selected 3 or 4 films (I think it’s safe to say they’re sequels to previous movies), then will the other flicks focus on new franchises? Perhaps Marvel will turn their attention towards Marvel Knights, bringing Daredevil, Punisher, and Black Panther to the big screen. Or maybe they’ll allow Ruffalo Hulk to star in his own movie (please not World War Hulk!)? Apparently Namor still belongs to Universal Studios, but I’d allow an Inhumans flick to take its place.
What do you think?
