Kevin Feige talks Marvel films plus exclusive S.H.I.E.L.D. poster at SDCC

As we get closer to the almighty San Diego Comic-Con, comic book film news is ramping up and producer Kevin Feige has discussed some interesting topics in regards to the many characters and films under the umbrella of Marvel. You can read all of the details here and here respectively, but I've listed some of the more interesting tidbits for you below.

In regards to how people perceive Edgar Wright leaving ANT-MAN:

[Edgar Wright] said, 'OK, let’s put out a statement and let people know it’s not screaming and fighting and dramatic. It just came to came down to creative differences.' And I said, ‘Well, nobody’s ever gonna believe that because that’s what everybody always says.’ And Edgar said ‘But that is what it is.’ He was nervous about what the perception would be, and I said to Edgar ‘Don’t worry about it, because the perception will be that the evil studio squashes the innocent filmmaker’. That will be the perception no matter what, and that is the perception, but it’s much more complicated than that. There is always a middle ground that we find, and it just became clear that both of us was just being too polite over the past eight years I guess! Then it was clear that, ‘Oh you’re really not gonna stop talking about that note?’ ‘Oh, you’re really not gonna do that note?’ Alright this isn’t working.

If Scott Derrickson's previous directorial efforts in the horror genre are any indicator for the direction Doctor Strange is going:

I would say you can certainly look at the past work of the filmmakers we hire as a bit of an indication for the tone of the movie, but not necessary everything. The Russos, who are well known for their sitcoms, there is nothing sitcom about The Winter Soldier! No, I wouldn’t say just because he has only done horror movies means that Doctor Strange is going to be a horror movie. It means he is a talented filmmaker who we think could add something unique and very fresh to the particular franchise. But there could be scary moments. There are scary moments in all our movies! There are some scary people that Strange has to deal with, I will say.

Whether or not we may see the Guardians of the Galaxy team up with the Avengers:

I don’t know. Part of the fun of the comics is that could happen. Any character could interact with any other character because they inhabit the same time period and the same universe. And certainly it is the inclusion of Thanos most specifically that is a declaration to audiences who are paying attention that this is connected to those other universes. Part of the fun is that it could happen someday. I don’t know when that would be. Or maybe I know and I’m not going to tell you!

I'd say that Marvel's future looks very fruitful, and the grosses of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY may be an indicator that audiences are willing to let Marvel take them into different and new territories. Of course, they haven't forgotten about their TV shows either. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is gearing up to start it's new season in September, and Agent Carter will be following sometime in the year 2015. Marvel will have an exclusive poster celebrating these two shows that will only be available at their booth at the SDCC, but I've included it below for your viewing pleasure.

Marvel's next endeavor, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, his theaters August 1, 2014.

THANK YOU

Everyone always tries to find a hero and it's villain with this whole Wright/Marvel situation and they laid out the facts... A dream pairing on paper just didn't work in real life. It happens and looks like neither party is bitter about it.

I don't like that Wright left/got fired but..

this guy always sounds like he knows what he's talking about and I think he's a big reason the marvel cinematic universe is so cohesive

In EW it was said Chris Pratt was cast for a very situation where an actor could hold his own verbally sparring with RDJ's Tony Stark. They'll def team up. Or fight a bit

Haven't been able to get on board Agents of SHIELD. It's boring for my tastes, and doesn't make up for it in the story or character development. Still waiting for a proper superhero show that doesn't appear restrained by a budget.

eh, correction. I did come to enjoy Smallville.

AOS found its way around when Captain America The Winter Soldier was released. Prior to that it was a show that couldn't figure out if it wanted to deal with one story each episode (aka every other cop show on tv) or have a tie into the movies.

To start with Marvel wanted the show to stand on its own, which wasn't working. The unfortunate part about being tied into the Cinematic universe is if you haven't seen the movie on release weekend you risk having the plot or punch line of a movie

The unfortunate part about being tied into the Cinematic universe is if you haven't seen the movie on release weekend you risk having the plot or punch line of a movie ruined. Case in point: I had not seen Winter Soldier for at least 3 weeks after release. Within 1 week of it releasing the show was already dealing with the demise of shield and in fact on a tv in the show they were showing "news footage" of the tear down of shield and the ships crashing into buildings. Not to mention the "death of Nick Fury" references...!

So although the show is better in the last 8-10 episodes, they have to tie it to the Cinematic universe for people to care and for the story to attract people to watch it. The downside of this is having movies ruined if you don't attend on release weekends.

Still dont see the need for a Agent Carter show. Im glad Netflix is doing shows based off superheroes and not a bunch of regular people. Thats just my opinion. Im sure there are plenty of you who are excited for Agent Carter.

If Guardians is a success...

Then you can bet we'll see them team up with the Avengers to battle Thanos.
