Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige finally has an answer as to why his studio stopped producing the One-Shot shorts that appeared on a few Phase 1 and Phase 2 Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Talking to Fandango, Feige explained:
“The truth is we’re a studio that has just recently gone from producing two movies a year to three movies a year, and we’re very comfortable now with the arrangement we have making three movies a year. That doesn’t leave a whole lot of room for other things like one-shots.”
Previous One-Shots included tales of Phil Coulson in The Consultant and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer on the home release for Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger in 2011. The Avengers contained the One-Shot Item 47 and Iron Man 3 had the best One-Shot of all, Agent Carter, that went on to become a TV series on ABC that only lasted two seasons. The final One-Shot came out in 2014 on the home video release of Thor: The Dark World, titled All Hail the King and bringing back Iron Man 3‘s Mandarin… er… I mean Trevor.
This summer, Tom Holland said he thought Marvel was planning on doing One-Shots again. Just yesterday, Eric Pearson, the writer of the first three One-Shots said he heard whispers of their return. But with this latest quote from the man on top of the Marvel mountain, both Holland and Pearson may be guilty of wishful thinking.
