Marvel President Kevin Feige gives Updates on New Film Projects
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently did a live live-chat session hosted by The LA Times' Hero Complex. I was an interesting little Q & A discussion where he revealed a few things regarding some upcoming Marvel film projects that I'm sure you'll be interested in hearing.
Read what Feige had to say below, and let us know what you think!
It is revealed that Iron Man will have a new set of armor in The Avengers.
Joss would kill me if I gave anything away, but I will say that the evolution you saw his armor take in IM2 will continue in The Avengers.
Feige confirmed that there will be a reference to Thor's original alter-ego in the upcoming film.
[P]eople looking for a reference to Don Blake in the Thor film will find one.
Marvel Studios recently got the rights to The Punisher back, and they're working on figuring out what to do with it.
Punisher's back in house, and various plans are in the works.
A script is currently in development for Iron Fist.
[A] very talented writer is currently working on a draft.
Feige talked about bring more female marvel characters to the big screen. Miss Marvel was pretty popular among the people in the live chat, but then Feige made his own suggestion...
I love Jessica Jones. Good choice!
When chat members were asked who they think should play Luke Cage, they suggested Old Spice guy Isaiah Mustafa.
Love the old spice guy!
Turns out the Marvel short film idea was just a rumor, but they aren't counting it out.
The shorts rumor was just a rumor, but we do like the idea.
The Iron Fist script is based, in part on the Brian Michael Bendis / Matt Fraction series.
[T]he movie is definitely inspired by that great run.
Ant-Man is still in development with Edgar Wright attached to the screenplay.
Edgar was here a few days ago. He's already working on the next draft.
Moon Knight is a character thats been discussed for a feature film adaptation.
Moonknight's a challenging, but extremely interesting character. We've been discussing various versions of it for years.
The Thor trailer just released online today will be shown with Tron: Legacy.
It should be playing in front of Tron on may screens, but maybe not all of them.
Black Panther is moving forward but there are no details given.
Things are in the works.
