Phase 3 updates from Marvel's Kevin Feige including Spider-Man & more!

04.13.2015

Kevin Feige Ant-Man Peyton Reed Paul Rudd

The second phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will come to a close this summer with ANT-MAN, but as you already know, Marvel is hard at work getting things ready for their phase 3 slate of movies. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige provided updates on Marvel's Phase 3 films while speaking with MTV, but first he was asked if the rumors about Captain Marvel appearing in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON were ever true.

In an early draft of the script, yes. We didn't want to introduce her fully-formed flying in a costume before you got to know who she was and how she came to be.

Kevin Feige says it's still in the early days of finding an actress to play Captain Marvel, and Marvel is "very close" to finding writers for the project. In a separate interview with Slash Film (where Feige also revealed that casting is underway for BLACK PANTHER), Feige said CAPTAIN MARVEL screenwriters will be announced in the next week or two.

Miles Morales Spider-Man

Feige goes on to say Marvel and Sony weren't ever seriously considered the Miles Morales version of Spider-Man for the MCU ("No, I mean we always felt it should be Peter [Parker] because we've never seen the MCU version of Peter Parker. We felt like we needed to see that first. Miles, I think is awesome. I think there are opportunities for him for sure if this all works."), and Peter Parker could potentially be played by a non-white actor.

Maybe. The field is very wide right now in terms of who we're looking at — within a certain age range.

Feige was asked if CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR will feel like a Captain America sequel or an Avengers sequel, and he says "both, but Cap is still the primary focus." Feige also says he hasn't discussed what Doctor Strange's accent will be yet with star Benedict Cumberbatch, and the production team "just finished scouting in New York City, for certain buildings that Doctor Strange inhabits."

Tom Hiddleston Loki

"Writers are writing" for THOR: RAGNAROK, according to Kevin Feige, and he says Tom Hiddleston's Loki will have an "integral role" in the THOR: THE DARK WORLD sequel. Feige also explained the decision to split AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR into two films.

It’s early days to talk about anything specifically, but I will say the intention of that is to do two, distinct stand-alone movies, as we do all the time. But because they [have] such shared elements, it felt appropriate. And we hadn’t done it before! So it felt appropriate to do subgroupings like that. But I wouldn’t call it one story that’s cut in half. I would say it’s going to be two distinct movies.

And finally, Feige was asked if Marvel already has plans for their phase 4 films:

No, we always talk about things. In brainstorming sessions, which is where we spend the majority of our time, things come up and we joke, ‘Oh, that’s Phase 7.’ But we used to joke about Phase 2 and Phase 3, so who knows? We set a plan, we put our heads down, and we try to make it happen.

A teaser for an upcoming ANT-MAN trailer has been released, and the full trailer is expected to debut sometime today. What are your thoughts on this quick, new look at the Peyton Reed film?

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON opens on May 1, 2015, and ANT-MAN will be in theaters on July 17, 2015.

" Peter Parker could potentially be played by a non-white actor."

Ok. I'm considered "Latino" myself (my parents are Puerto Rican") but that statement is where I draw the line. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Peter Parker IS white. Unless the actor looks white, wtf? You cannot just change canon to be hip or more pc. Especially not in the MCU. Miles day will come but are you seriously considering changing Peter Parker's race because "fuck it"?

They can do whatever they want. It's their character.

So was the Star Wars' Universe to Lucas...
Still people said that, basically, it had become the fans' property... And few complained about it...

I just hope they summarize Peters origin in the opening credits kinda like what they did with Hulk in the Incredible Hulk. I don't need another origin story for Spidey, I don't care if it's the first MCU Spidey.

if they make Peter Parker non-white they might as well make Black Panther non-black too. Bad idea.

Brooklyn= racially diverse melting pot
Wakanda = African country

They're not the same thing. While you could make Black Panther white, it would serve no purpose and make no sense given his cultural background. Peter Parker could very easily be black.

no, Bah_Zam, he has always been white for how many decades now? Change that, then you could just as easily change the history of the fictional african country to have been a melting-pot of races also. Which would still be a bad idea.

PC has gone wild in the last few years. I initially misread the article and thought it said they were going with Peter Parker (assuming the classic iteration) and that they would entertain Miles after. I was totally satisfied..... until I went back and read it again.

I'm guessing Infinity War Part 1 will focus on a different set of Avengers trying to defeat Thanos or some close adversary of his, then Part 2 has the original team coming back together.

Ant-Man looks like a good time. Much better trailer than the first. Loved the train. So funny.

I'm liking a lot of things about Ant-man, primarily the casting. Rudd and Douglas and Lilly are excellent casting choices.

Excited to see what the new Spider Man suit looks like; maybe it'll have cgi eyes like what they're doing with Deadpool (but I'm not sure how realistic it would be in the MCU).

And I really hope this new Thor sequels is a major improvement over Dark World (which was very disappoiting compared to the other Phase Two films).
