Kevin Feige has once again discussed just how far out the MCU is planned. I can remember the last time Feige was asked this was around 2018. At that point we knew that Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home would represent the end of the Infinity Saga. At that point Feige explained that typically Marvel Studios are planned around 5 years beyond what has been announced. We will never hear those plans too early because lots will change behind the scenes. Perhaps a planned film can’t be scheduled in time, or the right actor or director cannot get involved? The point is that whilst Marvel may have plans for the next five years, what is announced are the confirmed plans with all the pieces in place. mostly.
So when Collider spoke to Kevin Feige this week, the question came up again. Guess what Feige’s answer was? You betcha.
“To varying degrees of specificity, it’s always about 5 to 6 years out versus what we’ve announced. So whatever that takes us to.”
So since we have movies announced up till 2022 and Disney+ announced into 2023, that means Marvel is planning around 2027-2028 currently. If you read the source, Collider themselves worked this out as 2025-2026, but clearly those number do not add up. even if we discount 2023 which we don’t know a lot about, that still leaves us looking at ’27/’28’.
So this means pretty much nothing in terms of new information because we have always known that Marvel is always looking around 5 years ahead of what we know. The likelihood is, we will not hear about much else announced from Marvel until next year at least. That’s fine, we don’t need to know every planned step do we? We have a ton of MCU content coming in both theaters (finger crossed) and Disney+ over the next few years.
Do Feige’s latest comments about how far out the MCU is planned interest you at all? Or, like me does it feel like some of the trades need to ask the Marvel boss new questions? As always, leave any thoughts you have below if possible.
