Marvel Studios just keeps chugging along, under the watchful eye of Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. Yesterday, Feige revealed that in addition to the 22 announced Marvel Cinematic Universe films set to come including Avengers 4, the studio has, “another 20 movies on the docket that are completely different from anything that’s come before.”
In the same article in Vanity Fair, Bob Iger, chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company, also discussed the company’s approach for the 20 or so future Marvel films.
Iger reminded Vanity Fair that Marvel has the rights to 7,000 characters, all of whom can travel anywhere their creators choose to take them. Said Iger:
“We’re looking for worlds that are completely separate—geographically or in time—from the worlds that we’ve already visited.”
We keep hearing that Avengers 4 will not only mean the end of the line for many of the original cinematic Avengers, but also the end of a ten year narrative, with the MCU taking a very different and cosmic approach in the projects that follow. So, separation geographically was a given, but the idea of future MCU films spanning different periods in time is a very exciting one, as most (most) MCU films fall chronologically, more or less, with the exception of Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain Marvel, which will be set in the ’90s.
What do you think of Iger’s comments? What time period would you like to see explored? The distant future? The beginning of the universe? Let us know in the comment section below!
