Marvel Has Films Planned Through 2028, More Spin-Offs a Possibility
Tonight marks the first showings of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in theaters across the United States, so it only seems appropriate that there's a story looking ahead to the future of Marvel Studios as the continue to build this massive cinematic universe. Speaking with Businessweek (via The Playlist), Marvel chief Kevin Feige opened up about a sort of map that sits on his office wall that has the plans for the future of the Marvel universe laid out. Feige says it's "like looking through the Hubble telescope" that looks into the future of their films, and he spoke of printing "a new one recently that went to 2028." What?!
For those who aren't very good at math, that's 14 years into the future. By that point, this writer will be over the hill in age by a couple years, which is crazy to think about. But with hundreds, even thousands, of comic book characters at their disposal, there's plenty of things that Marvel can do. In fact, in the same Marvel report, Disney CEO Bob Iger talks about the possibility of spin-off films for members of the Guardians of the Galaxy or even the new superheroes like Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. As Iger says, "The possibilities are endless." With Doctor Strange and Ant-Man on the horizon to follow The Avengers sequel, there's plenty more on the way. What do you hope Marvel has in store?
