Marvel is about to see some ultimate success with their incredibly badass film The Avengers, which in my opinion is one of the greatest movies ever made. In a recent interview with Super Hero Hype, Marvel President Kevin Feige revealed that the studio has completed filming another little project that will be revealed soon. I assume that whatever it is will be revealed at Comic-Con this year.
When asked about sharing his responsibilities with Marvel producer Jeremy Latcham, Feige said,
The truth is that's always the way we've done it. Jeremy Latcham is an incredible executive and producer. He just completed "The Avengers" and he's going onto his next project. Each movie that we work on has a key executive producer along with it. If you don't know these names, you should. Co-president Louis D'Esposito who's executive producer on all the movies and who even directed a little something that we're going to reveal in the coming months. We couldn't do these movies without him. Victoria Alonso, who was also executive producer on "Avengers" and co-producer on our other films and leads the charge in everything from post-production and visual FX. You may have heard of the name Craig Kyle who oversees the "Thor" movies for me and Stephen Broussard who did "Captain America" and now has just moved to North Carolina for "Iron Man 3." We have an amazing team and a brain trust in place that allows us to make those two movies a year.
Not sure what this project is, but I imagine it's some kind of Marvel short film, which is still cool. Feige then offered an update Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, which Fox owns a part of.
We both have them. There's a specific arrangement with those two characters that would allow us to use them with "Avengers," but not discuss or reference their mutant or Magneto-related lineage. They can use them as mutants and as Magneto's relatives, but cannot have anything to do with "The Avengers."
He goes on to talk about a few other Marvel properties owned by other studios such as Spider-Man, X-Men, and the Fantastic Four. The question was asked by NBC's Popcorn Biz if he "envisioned a day where you did studio co-productions so that, say, Spider-Man and Captain America could be in a film together or, going nerdier, X-Men’s Beast could join The Avengers?" His answer is very hopeful...
Well, look, there's certainly no plans for it or have been any discussions about anything like that, but seven years ago nobody would believed that 'Avengers' would've been possible. So, I've stopped saying ‘never’ to any of those questions, but I don't know when that would be.
Feige then discusses the Magical side of the Marvel universe, specifically Dr. Strange, which we know is eventually going to happen, he just won't reveal when.
The magic side, again, it's going to be 'Doctor Strange.' Someday we will introduce that side of it, and when we go over that it's going to be through the eyes of Stephen Strange. When that happens, we don't know.
I'm excited for the future of Marvel and the movies and other shows they develop. What do you think this secret project is? Another Agent Coulsen short, or something more superheroish? It will be interesting to see what they do now since they've achieved epic greatness with The Avengers.
