In a Business Week article, it highlighted some future goals and plans for the movie franchises. Since Disney purchased Marvel for $4 billion more than four years ago, Marvel proved to be a gold mine for the House of Mouse.
Besides the obvious “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” opening this Friday and “Guardians of the Galaxy” for August 1st, there are plenty more Marvel movies in the works since his plan is to issue multiple Marvel movies a year.
According to Disney Presdient Bob Iger, Marvel “could potentially spin off members of the Guardians of the Galaxy, which include Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot, and Rocket Raccoon, in their own features.” Wow, individual spin-off movies for these characters? Marvel definitely expects it to be a huge Blockbuster this summer.
In addition, Iger and Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn met with the Marvel team to introduce even more by spinning off individual movies from characters in the upcoming “Age of Ultron.” Now who can that be? Scarlett Witch? Quicksilver? Or maybe more characters in that movie who haven’t been officially introduced yet?
So with the current plan of five superhero movies a year, the possibilities are endless with over 8,000 characters in the Marvel universe.
Business Week also reported during a visit with Marvel President Kevin Feige’s office, the reporter noticed a map of films that goes into the next decade on his well.
He told Business Week, “It’s like looking through the Hubble telescope. You go, ‘What’s happening back there? I can sort of see it. They printed out a new one recently that went to 2028.”
And let us not forget, Marvel also have plans beyond the movies. Just recently, Disney signed a deal with Netflix to introduce individual TV shows to feature about Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones. And then they will unite for another TV series called, “The Defenders.”
That’s an aggressive plan without considering more movies for Captain America, Thor, Hulk and Black Widow.
So who else do you want to see out of the Marvel Universe?
